Gardening has been one of my hobbies as well as photography and just being outdoors.

It has been awhile, but maybe I can get back into this habit.
First, garden status. I am trying to do the vegetable garden at my parent’s place. They have a nice big backyard for such things. During the spring, the tomatoes did well, especially the romas, they were the biggest I have ever grown and very meaty. The German butterball potatoes did not fare well, but the small nuggets that were harvested were delicious – they will be tried again next year. The 1015 onions have done great. My biggest was slightly bigger that a softball and most were at least baseball size. The peppers are flourishing. Not producing much in the heat of the summer, but putting on great growth for the end of summer and fall.
My “Building the Perfect Beast” tour continues. It is the inspirational title for my workouts these days. Who knew Wylie would have a rec center one day and offer great classes? Monday and Wednesday is yoga night, Tuesday and Thursday is boot camp. They are the best things I have done for myself and the combination is a perfect compliment. My boot camp instructor was a gymnast at TWU on their National Championship team. She was teaching and participating in the class this summer up to a week or so before she gave birth. I got really nervous when she did sumo squats. She took a couple of months off and is back and on a mission. She is bringing the rest of us with her whether it kills us or not. They will offer M-W-F boot camp next month. The only difficulty in that is it meets at 5:15AM. I am not a morning person, but will give it a try.
Smokey, my daughter’s cat, has been healing from an infection this summer. He was injured on the belly in a fight and it abscessed. To top it off, we also found out he has Feline AIDS. We had no idea there was such a thing. The vet thinks he got it either in this or another fight. I need to get Smokey a dog to help him patrol the yard now. Anyway, he had to have a gel applied, which smells very bad and is very strong. Smokey had to wear an E collar and bunk with Daisy the bunny. Smokey was housed in one hutch while Daisy had her hutch and run of the pen. Smokey was not happy. He was moved inside when the gel was not required, but still in a cage since the wound had not closed up. Right now he is all healed up and gets to go out a little. but we make sure he is in before night.
There has been an epidemic of disk drive crashing around here. First, my notebook earlier this summer. It took forever to copy the recovery files to another drive. Then a friend of mine, her daughter’s MACbook crashed. And then my mom’s laptop disk was corrupted.
Hope everyone is doing well during this strange summer.
