Spring has sprung!

The last few days the temperature has been in the 80s. BIG change!! Along with the warmer weather, Jeff and I got inspired to expand our garden. We have added green peppers, broccoli, and strawberries, along with 6 herbs. One of my tomato plants I believe is on it's last legs. It has some strange disease that makes the leaves wilt and turn yellow and black and basically fall off. That particular plant never produced either, so the next time I have a chance, I'm taking it out. The other tomato plant I have is carrying a load of approx. 20 pieces of fruit! Sigh...success! Our spinach has finally caught on too! I ripped out the beans due to something that I think is called "rust" (really they are little red bugs that make tents on all the whole plant. I re-planted the sugar snap peas too. So, we're in a trasition. I really don't know what I'm doing...gardening is a difficult thing to learn from books. =(

Yesterday I went to the dermatologist for the first time. I didn't really know what to expect, but I certainly wasn't expecting what I got. They took a mole off my left leg- from behind my knee RIGHT THEN. I didn't pass out though! It was the first time I've experienced local anesthetic and let me tell you- THAT STUFF IS WEIRD! I didn't feel a thing. Not then, or for the rest of the day. I am finally back to normal today though. They sent the specimin away for testing to make sure it was not cancerous. UGH! I'll keep you updated.

This weekend we're house/child/pet sitting. The kids are in 9th and 4th grade, so it's not really baby-sitting. But we're looking forward to being with them. They live in Winter Park, so it will be nice to be closer to everything this weekend. It will be fun!

Well, my break at work is coming to an end. Thanks for your patience with my ramblings. =)

Phyllis and Mrs. R (I can't seem to get accustomed to calling you Kathy...please bear with me =) Thanks for your imput on my tomato "problem". I think we're going to put up some kind of screen/fence or something so that little critters cannot harvest any more of our food!
