The 21st century

This blog post is coming from my new laptop computer. I am still in the learning curve but so far I love it. It feels nice to be in the 21st century.
We had a stopped up drain in the kitchen and worked on it and then the husband said leave it I will deal with it tomorrow. So off to bed we went then at 5am I sit up in bed and think Sadie! We have a 16year old cat that gets on the counter when we are not looking (at night) I did a major freak that she got her paws in the drain cleaner that may have been around that sink. I washed her feet with a wet towel and wiped and wiped her paws which she completely hated and hissed at me and bit me. Well she put my hand in her mouth but she couldn't bite me no matter how mad she was. So long story short she seems fine and I know for sure she was on the counter. I am totally driving her crazy but she is eating and drinking and seems her old self. Isn't this beautiful!!!
my tomatoes are coming fast and furious I picked these today and Sunday I made brochette(not sure of the spelling Italian yumm) or my version of it any way but it was so good my husband loved it. Good I think he may get it several more times.

Then I was out in the garden cutting things back and walking around. I knew we had blackberry bushes growing out of now where but I didn't think there was much of anything
for berries growing. But I was wrong.
I picked this bowl in just a few minutes now I need to find a great way to fix them.

I am feeling a bit under the weather today so I am home from work. I rarely take time off for sickness but it feels good to nap and rest. I love comments they make my day.

Welcome to the 21st century. I haven't made it yet :(
Oh, there is nothing like tomatoes fresh from the garden and those berries. They look so yummy ~ one of my favorites.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
