Hello everyone, I hope you have had a wonderful week. The weather has been great.
It was so nice having the yard mowed for the first time of the season. There was definitely the smell of wild onions in the air after the mowing.
We didn’t have much of a backyard in Wyoming, so we didn’t need a lawnmower. Our backyard in Wyoming had a piece of Astroturf on the dirt and it was big enough for two chairs and a table.
The only things that grew were weeds. We did keep an eye out for rattlesnakes and luckily, we didn’t see any in our yard.
I worked at the Job Corps Center and last summer there were several snakes wandering through the natural grass on center. I never asked what they did with the snakes, I was just glad they were gone.
We have started a small garden, mostly strawberries and tomatoes. My strawberries came from the County Extension office and I have high hopes for the strawberries.
My brother and sisterin law may plant more in the garden. I’m not really a gardener, for me it’s a case of the strong will survive. Ha!
I did plant some flowers and buy some hanging baskets. I would rather plant flowers than vegetables. I have a lot more flowers to plant but at least it’s a start. Hopefully I’ll have time to work on the flowers this week.
My cousin, Doris Ison, stopped by for a visit last week. It was good spending some time together. I do enjoy being with family.
Elijah Grant of Shelbyville earned his yellow belt in karate. Eli is the son of Juddy and Micca Grant and is the big brother of Finley. His grandparents are Donna and Mike Watts of Whitesburg.
We had company for the weekend. My sister, Susan Ware of Lexington and my niece, Jaimie Mefford of Amelia, Oh., came in. Jaimie brought her dog, Buck, and he is a great dog.
My son, Greg Wenning of West Milton, Oh., came in along with Carla Charles and Carli of Xenia, Oh. It was a wonderful weekend.
All of us, along with my brother, John Campbell, went up on Town Hill. We were in three all-terrain vehicles and we had a fun time.
We saw Mark and Kathy Miles up there along with Sam and Mary. There was a guy on a dirt bike that passed us when we were parked in the middle of the road. The weather was absolutely perfect and the company was great.
On Sunday, we spent a lot of time sitting in the yard and talking. There’s nothing better than spending time with family and loved ones.

Mike and I celebrated our 41st anniversary on April 15. It’s always good to be married to your best friend. Mike and I are the proud parents of three sons and two daughters-in-law, Greg, Mark and Heather, and Brad and Becky.
My social media quote for the week is: Happiness is not having what you want, it is appreciating what you have.
