My first blog post...

After many, many months of contemplating whether or not I would start a blog, here I am typing in my first post ever! I have a whole lot to learn, and would love to add music and change out backgrounds etc, but for now,its a start!
Its is a very stormy summer evening here on Long Island, so what better time to sit in front of the computer and try my hand at blogging.
Earlier I sat under the gazebo listening to the peaceful rain, and rumbling of thunder (not sure that was the best place to be in a storm, but hey- a girls gotta take chances in life right?)
Today was a good day in the vegetable garden, with a nice harvest of zucchini, tomatoes and plenty of green bell peppers. Below is a picture of the vegetables I picked earlier. I used the peppers in tonight's dinner- sausage and peppers...yummy!
Also picked a real pretty bouquet from the flower gardens. It seems that the crabgrass is taking over out in the flower beds, but it has just been too darn hot to weed, so for now, I am letting the weeds win.

I can see how blogging can become addicting, but as with all things in life, finding the time to complete the task will be a challenge. I am sure I will post at least once per week, maybe more, so stay tuned!
