If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you how thankful I am to be able to have access to my WordPress blog. It has been over a week and I have tried everything I knew and asked for help from friends. I contract WordPress I don’t know how many times. But you have my THANKS, THANKS, THANKS again. I am a senior citizen and my eyesight and hearing are going. My WordPress blog is my outlet to the world and to have it licking me out was VERY STRESSFUL THANKS AGAIN!HUGS


If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell my life is changing and I must learn to accept it and not let it stress me out. I feel my medical problems are finally on the positive side, my caregiver pull one of tricks Friday and I lost it and told her not bother coming as she was already 25 minutes late. So I spent most of that day talking with office. I will have a caregiver Monday and will go day to day for awhile. Than in the late afternoon our internet connection had problem. All internet was down throughout the building.


Above are two lovely rock garden penstemons taken in their native habitat. The pink one is P. rupicola  and was found in Central part of Washington state. The other one is P. Newberry we found in northcentral California.

If we were having coffee/tea, I would tell you that the weather has continued to be in I got this time of the year. Hot one day, cold the next and a number of thunderstorms with heavy amounts rain. The Boise River is still over its banks and flood areas that hadn’t flood for years. The same have room for more water and the snowmelt is over. Our hot weather is still to come.

    Betty, You have had a lot of stressful things in your life lately–health issues, caretaker issues, Kato’s passing and of course your blog. I am so glad your blog is up and working again as it is your outlet to the world! I know it must have been frustrating when the Internet went down, but at least you knew it wasn’t something that YOU had to fix and that it would eventually get fixed. I am sorry your caregiver was not working out. It seemed she had been with you for quite a while. It is hard, like the blog problem, because you depend on that help. I hope this week is a good one for you, and as you say, “Think positive. Hugs!”
