In any case, I've decided to share it today here and am hoping I'll be able to track down the 'source' to add a link at some point because (although I've experienced a few 'challenges' lately ... I've also been blessed in lovely ways and that's what I choose to focus my attention on today, just as I did in my previous post ... 7 Really Good Things.
Here are 3 more Really Good Things!
1. It's been a while since I've spent any time on the 'deck' above my garage, but when I went up there on Monday (to see what or who Molly was barking at in the alley) ... I noticed the most amazing thing. I wish I'd had the presence of mind to fetch my camera initially, but instead I picked these.
Apparently some birds 'planted' the seeds for me in an 'abandoned' planter, and we got adequate rain to nurture the plant enough produce these cherry tomatoes. Who knew? They taste delicious ... even though THIS is what the poor neglected tomato plant on my deck actually looks like. I've added some water and will watch to see what happens next ;--)
2. Recently, Rhonda (who sometimes goes as Chuck) shared her photographic creativity in a last Wednesday's Wordless Wednesday post and asked readers to guess what the subject might be. She made and bestowed THIS nifty award on those of us who guessed 'in the ballpark' ... and I'm oh so proud of myself ;--)
A while before that, Chuck passed this Sharing The Love Award along to me. It was created by Memoirs of A Mommy in honor the donor who saved her son Noah's life with a heart transplant. Her hopes are that we can create more awareness of the importance of organ donation by passing this award onto others.
I'd like to share both of these awards today with all who drop by ... and I hope you'll share the love with your blogging buddies too. We all enjoy 'link-love' and comments ... just because ;--)
The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog. **All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**3. According to Dell, the 'status' of my order is 'still in production' ... and according to Patricia (who took my order on the 12th of June), it's still 'scheduled to ship on time' ... although a company that supplies Dell with batteries has experienced a 'major fire' ... resulting in 'some of the battery quantities being backlogged' ... but I'm hoping for the best and holding nothing but positive thoughts as I struggle along with this sold, old 'workhorse' of a machine ... doing what I can to 'fix' issues with my blogs and visiting others when it will allow me to do so.
