About Jim

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

IMG_0005-XLI love it when these explode and today is the day they are finally opening.  My three smaller white crab apple trees are not doing so well but my big one is doing just fine.  It will be nice to see these blooms over the next week or so and smell how sweet they are.


Saturday Morning

IMG_0002-XLThe sun is up, the sky is blue, it’s warm and there are birds singing everywhere around me.  Not a bad way to sit at the dining table having Saturday morning coffee.  The finches, the wrens, and my ever faithful chickadees having been coming back and forth from the trees to my feeders making Miss Lily crazy as they feed and sing.

I’m in no hurry to do anything this morning.  The bed is made, I’m all cleaned up and sparklie and I know I have a market run but I’m putting that off for now.  I somehow managed to find matching outdoor plant hangers for hanging some more plants.  I’ll hafta start putting some thought into getting some Impatiens for the front entrance.  That and other things that I can plant for the front door.  The gummys sure like watering the potted flowers whenever they come over.

Other than those few thoughts, it’s just another dazzling day in the life of a south metro urbanite.

Random thoughts for Friday night.

IMG_0718-XLI’ll admit it.  I wanna be somewhere else right now.  It’s been a rough work week but thankfully it’s over.  So I wanna get myself somewhere so I can relax, have some coffee at a nice cafe, and maybe wink at a pretty lady and share a table with her.  I can dream at least and let my mind run wild.

Everything is greening up nicely and even the lawn guys were here today.  One guy reset my lawn sprinkler system and the other guys mowed the lawn nice and clean.  It’s my one real luxury that allow just for me.  I had such a huge yard in my last quarters and I got so tired of mowing and doing the weed whacking every week.  I come home and the yard looks spiffy and all clean.  It’s worth the expense to me.

So we have a quiet weekend since my SIL is taking my grands up to Duluth to see his Mom and Dad.  I think I’ll suffer thru.  I have plenty to keep me busy this weekend anywho.

No, I don’t speak French but I’m in the mood for something French.
