Why do you call loyal readers gentle friends? I really don't know. I said it once to someone I didn't know and it kind of stuck. We who tend our gardens are really gentle souls. It doesn't matter if we dig in the dirt or guide our children, we are tending our garden.
Favorite thing to grow in the garden? I enjoy growing zucchini. I am not a big zucchini fan but I do enjoy growing it. I also adore my raspberries and am the raspberry momma among those I know. I am making it a personal goal to populate every friends yard with a handful of plants with the hope that they in a few years will share a handful with their friends and so on. Eventually, maybe in a dozen years or so, my raspberry off spring will be feeding many people their juicy fruits. I have given hundreds away, sadly I know the first few years of giving them away I gave haphazardly and the baby plants did not always go to a home which would love and care for them. I know better now.
I enjoy hearing how the plants are doing and will ask you if you have some of them how they are growing and if they have fruit yet.
Purely Random Meanderings.... Lets take a walk down the road together....
I have longed to write a blog about Nachos and one day I will. Yes NACHOS. The name of my blog is already chosen and has been in the process for five years, I just have to start it....
I love my city. We are working class and the poor cousin of Seattle but we have a lot to offer as well. It really bothers me when people make fun of Tacoma or make comments about it, or think they know about her safety. Like any city we have problems, but we also have a lot of really nice people here and some very beautiful old architecture. We have some beautiful old buildings and museums. Our parks are a fun mixture of play and wildlife, green zones are much beloved here. We are honestly a beautiful city with quaint neighborhoods and urban hubs, full of locally owned restaurants and shops to please everyone.
I kind of like Nascar and feel a closeness to Jeff Gordon and his wife. We were both pregnant at the same time and I had some crazy dreams involving him, his car and the Hubs and I being his crew and crew chief while his wife was in labor.... He specifically requested us.... Like I said, really wild! *grin*
I wonder if people I know in real life really read my blog.... Does anyone else ever wonder about that?
I am content..... believe it or not I am content and happy. Sure there are some wants, but we all want to be more financially secure, we all want to lose weight, we all want to eat better, we all want it to rain when needed and be sunny when the weekend rolls around, but I am not talking about that. I am talking about contentment. Contentment is where you truly find happiness. This isn't to say I don't get frustrated or anxious, but overall, I am feeling a great sense of contentment.

Thank you gentle friends for your love and understanding. Lets all remember to tend our gardens one day at a time.
