The following photos are of the garden taken in the past day or so. It's amazing how much is still in bloom.

Coffee, Gardening, Renee, and of course...1Pic!
I have to have a blood test. The big one. I have to fast for at least 12 hours before hand, so I'm attempting to ween myself of coffee. Why? Because if I don't, I'll get such a migraine. I don't drink a lot of coffee, just one big old latte per day. I'm down to about 1/8th tsp of coffee with milk and water, I'm almost ready to go! I realized yesterday my coffee tasted like hot water and milk. Not good.
Rob's mom said a few days before Christmas "How beautiful...you've decorated the kitchen." I said, "...it's the same decoration from last year, I never bothered to take it down. " Apparently she didn't notice! I had a good laugh. (The kitchen isn't painted yet (eventually it will be soft butter yellow with pure white trim and moldings), what you see is just primer.)
Got a call from my dear friend Renee in LA tonight. She's worried about this blog and about me. Thinks it's too personal and is fearful I might attract an undesireable (stalker!). Who? Someone who doesn't like roses!? God forbid. However, she did cause me to rethink this blogging thing. I'll be careful in the future, but what am I supposed to do with all my others posts and comments? Edit the ones I can and delete the ones I can't? That doesn't seem like much of an option. Her main concern is my safety at the park where I feed feral kitties. Something very scary happened there one morning a few months ago, so my friends and family are always concerned about my safety, but I refuse to stop going (if you want to know the story, go to CSI Seattle's blog to find it. I'm thinking about deleting it, so hurry). Rob actually got on the phone to reassure her I would never give away the location. I had planned to take some photos of the beautiful Sycamore trees, but now I'm afraid someone might recognize them! So I won't. (See Renee...I'm listening!!!) And to all my dear blogger friends, I know you're legitimate, but you can understand her concern. That's what good friends do...love you and often worry.
Those of you who love 1pic as much as I do will smile at this one. When Renee read my post intitled "I Met A Fabulous Guy..." she hadn't read his blog and when she referenced it, only read the first few posts. She didn't understand and was concerned I had actually fallen in love over the internet!!! Is that the sweetest thing or what? Trying to explain 1pic and that whole thing was complicated as all you fans will agree! I told her she would only understand if she read his whole blog and as many comments as possible! She has young twins and a busy life, so I don't know how she's going to fit it in, but I hope she does because as we all know...he affects both men and women equally. I can hardly wait for the phone to ring and hear the wonderful words..."Suzanne, thank you!"
P.S. Yes, for those of you who read the original, I've edited this post viciously! I must have been very tired because upon rereading it this morning realized it was sloppy and disconnected. Those of you who had to endure it, please forgive me because it must have been painful!
Also, I had to put the little squiggles in between paragraphs because for some reason blogger wouldn't allow me to seperate them. All the paragraphs were just one big hunk of words and I couldn't allow something that ugly to post.
