Happy Memorial Day

All we have of freedom, all we use or know -
This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.
~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899






=============================

For Jen -- I harvested a bunch of rhubarb yesterday, cuz it was in my way.


And the plant still looks like this:


The leaves are great for weedblock in the garden!


I'm making rhubarb stir-cake tomorrow. Yum.

==============================

One of my favorite flowers in my annuals bed -- the gazania:



===============================

I wrote about two-thirds of a very short story that will most likely post on the LASR week after next. Judy and I are being challenged, because folks are only submitting to our short story contest (and who can blame them -- they win a YEAR's free advertising if they win!). But, in the meantime, we have nothing to post, story-wise, until July 1st.

If there are any of you who don't care if you win a year's free advertising, and you have a 1000 -1500 word short romance story... please send it our way!

You Communicate With Your Body



This isn't as bad as it sounds, it just means that you're a "touchy-feely" person.

You need a lot of affection in your life. And for you, this means both giving and receiving little touches.

Warm hearted, you bond with people easily. In fact, you often feel a little sad when you're not in the company of others.

A little moody, you tend to be controlled by your emotions. But a bit hug always comforts you!



Yep.. that's about right (except the feeling sad when I'm alone part... I do enjoy my alone time!).

I love your flower..so orangy.

You Communicate With Your Ears

You love conversations, both as a listener and a talker.

What people say is important to you, and you're often most affected by words, not actions.

You love to hear complements from others. And when you're upset, you often talk to yourself.

Music is very important to you. It's difficult to find you without your iPod.


This is so true and my friends call me the listener rather than the talker.

Have a good Monday.

That fits me to a tee!

Rhubarb cake? Do share! *G* The only thing I've ever had rhubarb in is strawberry pie. Is it hard, or easy to place in a recipe?

The flower is so pretty!

According to the quiz, I communicate with my ears. And I am a listener as opposed to a talker. *G* As a matter of fact, the whole darn thing was pretty spot-on.

I hope you're having a great Memorial Day!
