Your credit cards and what can happen to you.

I don't know how many of you watched Good Morning America this morning on ABC, but you should watch this clip or read the story by Chris Cuomo. Some people are getting their credit taken away from them because they are shopping at store the credit card companies don't like and other things like that.

Gobble to Goop from my son-Part three

Bees like to do everything that you want them to do, but they mostly like to polinate flowers that is why God made so many flowers.

Little bear come outside and play today while the earth is spinning around very fast and so that just is the way that the earth is and it will be forever and even when we are in heaven but life will not change in heaven we will be running and walking very fast, but we will never ever change even if we are children or adult we will not be dead up in heaven the people will come alive when it is time to go to heaven but I don't know the dead people may stay on earth, but they will be able to come up to heaven so that is just what I want to say, because that is always my favorite thing to say on bloggers but you might get posted in a blog

but watch out because you may get pecked to bits by a quail or stomped on by a rabbit that is what Roxie said to Bruce I'll have the last bit of laughter said Roxie so be really careful Roxie the witch said, if she could make him little he could be a tadpole or nothing at all, but she like Bruce and she kept him that size. That is from the story Big Bad Bruce by Bill Peet.

Tomatoes and Chives update

I don't know about you, but I have found that clipping the weaker tomatoes hard. I would like all the tomatoes to have the chance to grow. I know though that it will be much easier for the stronger plant if I get rid of the other ones.

I hope everybody is enjoying the pictures. Please leave a comment if you have anything to add or say. I could use some tips, because the leaves are light yellow. I am not sure if they are losing nutrients or not. If anybody has any ideas please tell me.

Tomatoes and Chives

All of our tomatoes and chives are up now. It is getting exciting now. The next step is to cut weaker tomatoes, so the stronger ones have a chance to go. I did add water to the AeroGarden the other day. It sure helped, it is much quieter now. Is anybody else growing plants in their houses. We would sure like to hear about it. Have a wonderful weekend.

Update on Tomatoes

The tomatoes are doing well. They are slowly growing. The chives are about two inches tall. The empty pod is still not growing. We will update with pictures in a couple days.

Building with Logs!

Building with logs can be a fun afternoon activity. B says building with logs is a lot of fun, because it is. It is a good chance to be creative. There may be directions, but you don't always have to follow them.
It is especially fun when you get to use people and animals to put on a production.

B always likes to pretend to play on a farm, so this is a lot of fun for him.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for the sunny skies and temperatures that were not too cold as the United States of America welcomes their new president. I ask you to be with President Obama and his family as they move forward into their new life. Be with them and guide them as a strong family. Guide Miss Malia Obama and Miss Sasha Obama as they go to school and meet new children. Help First Lady Michelle Obama be a strong mother and wife so she may support her family when they need it. Guide President Obama as he makes new and difficult decisions. Help him to guide the United States of America as the founding fathers did. I will leave you with this verse about wisdom from Proverbs 8:30; "Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him."

Our Indoor Garden

We have started an indoor AeroGarden. This is what the plants look like after a week.

The tomato plant on the back right has not started growing yet. I think it will be soon. We have three tomato sets and one chives. When we got the AeroGarden it had a set of herb seeds and I wanted to see if I could get the chives to grow with the tomato nutrients. I have been seeing many ads for these AeroGarden and I was excited when it finally fit into our budget to be able to purchase one. I wanted it to be able to grow tomatoes. It always takes such a long time for the plants to grow. We usually leave when the tomatoes get ripe and then the plants die soon after that. I am hoping with growing them hydroponically they will be grow and continue growing for a long time. We will be posting pictures of the plants as they grow. We hope to be able to show you how well this appliance works.
