English Box plants - is that the boxwood hedge shrub? No offense, Kylie, but I gotta say, I can't stand those! They smell like cat pee when they're wet. They're all over Colonial Williamsburg and this area - people are very proud of their English roots.

OTOH, I picked up a mojito mint plant at the farmer's market this afternoon, along with some asparagus and romaine. Yummy. Now I need to get planting.

I have been sitting at the computer since I had my heart incident this morning. Just relaxing. But all of a sudden my legs are having a LOT of pain in my thighs. I have never had this before. I hope it is just another arss ache of old age.

Last week my computer started to give me a lot of trouble. Finally on Wednesday night and Thursday it gave up the fight. I kept thinking it was the modem. Spike kept saying No. I was getting so frustrated with him. He finally took the modem back to Comcast after being on the phone with the technie for over an hour. Brought it home, hooked it up, some improvement. So they had him remove the splitter. Half goes to the TV. The computer started to work perfectly. But I didn't have the TV. So he went home, grabbed a brand new splitter, VOILA! All problems solved. I still can't get over how fast it is working. It comes on so fast. The modem and splitter were more than ten years old. The funny part (not really so funny) Comcast noticed on their end that I was having a problem before I did. But they couldn't contact me because I had never given them my new cell phone number when I got rid of the land line. All is well now and I am a happy camper.

I really need to eat something. But it is so nice out I may just go out to the front of the building and sit on the bench. I will make something later. I am not hungry, so it can wait.

I wish my daughter was home here in Eastie instead of Florida. I don't like the idea of her being so far away from her doctors. We could be sitting in her yard right now instead of me worrying. But her hubby is with her and I am sure she will be all right.

I just did a spell check before I hit the submit button. I am always surprised when there are no errors. The only problem I am having is that I am typing faster than the computer can handle, so I keep having to slow down.

What are you doing?

Aloha friends!
Sitting on the lanai this am with my coffee. The birds are singing and a sneaky King Fisher is looking for breakfast among the lilly pads of the stream only a few feet away.
I want to snorkle later today but dont think my foot is good enough for a fin, so we will see. Weather is perfect..not too warm and no rain.
One finger typing on this Nook is a PITA!

I am so envious, Kayelle! Glad you're having a great time!

Go ahead and snorkel with one fin. I'd broken a foot a while back, and asked some of my snorkel/scuba friends, as well as my bone doc (also a snorkeler) about going with one fin or finless, and it's fine to use one fin on the good foot. Looks strange, but who cares. If it were me, I would hop in the water immediately!

E lunch.

I am not sure if they are boxwood and I dont think they grow into a hedge GG

We got these as there is already one down that side of the house and has grown to pass the height of our roof, we needed something that requires little sunlight down there and grew well, it looked like these were the ones

It is sooooo hard to find a plant/shrub over here that can grow in the shade, all the plants here love our Aussie sun
