Finally, able to post on my space...
I have been trying all day long to post on here. Everytime I try to edit my space my computer locks up.
This afternoon Jim saw his oncologist. His blood count is falling which is normal after chemo. It does put him at risk being around other people though. His sister and niece from Florida are flying here to see us this Wednesday for a few days. On a week from tomorrow (Saturday) we have planned a family get together. Jim's nephew from Wisconsin is planning to be here along with his daughters and their significant others. Also our daughter and son-in-law and our son. I have decided to put a smiley face tag on the front of Jim that says "Please, no hugs, my immune system is down." I am hoping that will work. Your opinion please.
Yesterday, in the midst of my euphoric bread baking the dreaded Japanese beetles defoliated a tree in our front yard, a tree next door and a tree across the street. The trees are totally dead looking. It took a matter of just a few minutes for the beetles to do this. I went outside and looked and there were literally thousands of them eating the foliage on the new tree in our front yard. The tree next door is about 15 years old and it was totally defoliated too. I didn't get a picture because just the sight of it was making me feel sick. Is my poor little garden next??
