Hi There Everyone, I hope that you all have had a most enjoyable kind of week since the last time you were sitting down reading ~The Seeker~, Cornwall and the S.D. & G. area’s most Positive newspaper. MOTHER NATURE … What Are You Doing To Us??? Why did you invite Old Man Winter to come back to make us put on more and warmer clothing and made us turn on our furnaces??? Enough Already!!! Give us the Spring and Summer temperatures we expect at this time of year. PRETTY PLEEEEEASE!!!
Tip of the Week: For All of You Gardeners Out There, Plant your peas, beets and lettuce when the first leaves appear on the Lilac bushes. Plant your corn, beans and squash when the Lilac trees bloom. Plant cabbages when the Dogwood is in full bloom, or when the apple blossoms bud. Plant Non-GMO corn when the Oak leaves are the size of mouse ears, or when Elm leaves are the size of a squirrel’s ear. Set out your tomato transplants when the first ladybugs appear. Beans, carrots, cauliflower and beets do well in close quarters. Plant your radishes with your lettuce… (flea beetles will stay away.) Plant the carrots and onions close together, this keeps the carrot flies away. (Shu fly don’t bother me.) Keep your cabbage away from tomatoes and celery. Cucumbers will improve when beans are grown between them. Turnips like to have some peas nearby. (They get lonely sometimes.) Beans and sweet corn do well in alternate rows. Plant beans on top of your potatoes to keep the potato bugs away. Plant Marigolds and peppers around the perimeter of the garden to deter Slugs, Rabbits and Squirrels!!! SQUIRREL!!! Cheers to all of you “Green Thumbers” out there … Happy Gardening Everybody!!!
Item of the Week: This week I have chosen a perfect item that suits me so well. It is a “wine bottle
stopper” in the shape of a shoe. OH, SO SWEET!!! ISN’T IT??? I picked up this item from an online auction for ONLY $3.00!!! See what a few dollars can do…Why not see what “Unique items” you can get on these different auctions on face book!!! HAPPY SHOPPING LADIES & GENTS.
I wanted to continue writing about “FATHERS” this week, as this Sunday, June 19th is Father’s Day. I want to THANK all of the Step fathers, Foster fathers and all of the Father figures who have stepped up to the plate to take over the responsibilities of the FATHERS for whatever reason couldn’t or wouldn’t want to be there for their child or children. I want to thank them for the year that they have put into making and keeping their families happy and healthy. I want to thank you for the love that you have and sometimes can’t express at times.. Dads are sometimes quiet when it comes to showing their love. Thanks also, to the many ‘BIG Brothers’ who volunteer their time to be a father figure to so many young people. At 2 yrs old…I said, ”Daddy I love you”… At 15 yrs old, ”Dad Whatever!”… At 17 yrs, old, ”My Dad is so annoying”… At 18 yrs old,”I’m leaving this house”… At 25 yrs. old, “Dad you were so right”… At 30 yrs ‘ I want to go to Dad’s house”… Now at 55 yrs. old, ” I didn’t want to lose my Dad … but, sadly, I did… “I would give anything to have my Dad here with me, today!” He would have been so proud of me… You Only Have One Dad, FATHER… So tell him that you love and appreciate him for all that he has done for YOU and the rest of your family.
Until Next Week: Maybe “The Journey” isn’t so much about becoming Anything. Maybe it’s about UNBecoming Everything that isn’t YOU!!! I am in competition with no one. I run my own Race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in any Way, Shape or Form. I just Aim to Improve, to be Better, than I was before. THAT IS WHO AND WHAT I AM – BEING ME, AND FEELING SO FREE!!!
