~Stay still, butterfly!~That age old question...where does the time go?...certainly comes to mind today. I just realized we only have one more day left on this calendar page. For such a busy month, how can one accomplish so little?
~Salvia loaded with bees~I was talking to my friend, Ell, yesterday about vacations. She and her hubby just got back from a bus tour that went through Tennessee to Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA before heading back up to TN and coming home to Missouri. It sounded like a great trip, except for having to be packed each morning with the suitcase outside your door at 6 am and on the bus by 8 am. I was telling BG about it and he said I would get left behind. LOL! Have you ever taken a bus tour? It sounds like fun, if you don't mind sticking to a strict itinerary.

We need rain here. We've only had a sprinkle or two, the rains have been very spotty in our area. Our garden is looking good right now, but I will have to start watering soon and also watching out for the deer who are beginning to eyeball the backyard goodies. I've seen them casting a hopeful eye when they make their way to the pond for a drink.
I was hungry for Mexican food last night, so I made one of our favorite quick and easy meals. I call this recipe Haystacks.
Brown a pound of hamburger and pour off the fat. Stir in a package of taco seasoning and about a half cup of water and heat through. Meanwhile, crush up some Nacho flavored Doritos on a plate. When the hamburger mixture is ready, spoon on top of the Nachos and then top with lettuce, diced onions, salsa, shredded cheddar cheese and top with a dollop of sour cream. Yummy!
Look at those big, scared eyes. It breaks my heart that this little girl is so timid and scared of everything. She jumps at the slightest noise. One of our other cats attacks her every chance they get. Peanut growls, but won't fight back. So, one of the cats is going to have to leave, I'm afraid. Peanut was here first, so it will probably be the other cat. It's hard to give up any furbaby that you've gotten attached to, but I can't have Peanut living in terror all the time. Sigh.
Happy Friday to you!
