Yesterday Stevie was accidentally tripped by a friend racing to the swings. She fell hard on the cement and has a good bruise on her side and one on her arm.
Today her mother brought her over to our house, she was limping and holding on to her mother so she could walk. Trudy said that Stevie couldn't walk unless she was holding on to something and then Trudy had to demonstrate, it was so funny.
Soooo today Stevie is home with us, using a cane that we have so she can walk. Right now she is practicing the piano, then she has her homework she needs to finish. She does have books to read but she is on couch duty all day. Poor dear, I know she hurts but it is so funny to watch her.
These pictures are of Stevie going to the couch from the piano. She didn't want me to take pictures of her using the cane.
Saturday Sid and I went to our ward Scout's Breakfast, Service Auction and Car Wash. As we drove up we noticed Zane and Noah washing their car with the help of other scouts and their leader Brother Rey.
We left our car to be washed and then went and had breakfast. They had all kinds of fruit and sweet breads, oh yes pancakes.
Baxter went out to move our car after it was finished and took some pictures of the scouts washing our car.
They did a wonderful job.
I think they had fun too. Brother Rey is a good leader and the boys had big smiles on their faces.
Stevie and her friend just happened to wear the same kind of t shirt. Love the saying Best Friends.
That same evening we went back to the Church for Stevie's baptism.
Tina played the prelude and postlude . Baxter played for the songs that were sung and for Grandpa and me as we sang.
After eating quite a few goodies at the baptism, we went and ate at a Mexican restaurant. It was very good and I overate. What sweet misery all night long. When will I ever learn.
I had an enjoyable day, I would do it all over again.
Went outside to put Stevie on the school bus this morning. What do I see? The nylon I tied up my peonies with yesterday lying on the deck with Bubbles happly chewing up one of my beautiful peonie blossoms. Then walked around the corner and found another one laying on the walk.
One good thing about it. Stevie took her teacher a beautiful peonie. She was happy. Now I have one floating in a bowl on my kitchen table.
Naughty dog!!!!! Don't get the wrong idea, I like Bubbles, she is a good puppy. I'm glad my garden is beyond her electric fence.
When Tina was here the other day she remarked that she had seen the farmer down the street using 6 work horses. So today while we were out and about we saw the same rig. Stopped and took some pictures.
Sid's dad used to farm with horses before the tractor. He used 1 to 3 horses at time.
Can't believe I've blogged three times today. he he
I think I have said I have never been able to raise peonies. I bought one from the Zimmerman's two years ago. Amish Market. Then last year I bought five from Spring Hill. Wow. I think Grandma Emily would be jealous. She loved peonies and she had one bush that she protected like a hen with her chicks. In Abraham I couldn't grown them.
These are some pink peonies that I bought from the Spring hill Nursery. I tied them up with some old nylons.
This one isn't as big but just as pretty.
The peonies from Zimmerman's.
Trudy knew I was looking for some Rose trees so when she saw these next two rose trees at Lowes she called me. Dad just planted them today for me.
They are both really pretty. I hope they do as well as Dad's.
Here's Dad's in full bloom.
I can't believe how fast these potatoes are growing. I hope they put some energy into potatoes.
Today I planted the cucumbers, squash, and melons that I started in the house. My tomatoes need to get a little bigger before I transplant them.
