Dad is in my garden

I'm planting 60 Heirloom tomato plants for father’s day. I think dad would be pleased with my garden. I miss him. Juergen got me 12 bags (540 liters) of good potting soil for a late mothers day gift and I got him a new ironing board! Juergen is an iron man.

she got in

Nicole just got accepted in the Theologische Hochschule in Ewersbach. She moves out in the fall. I plan to make a real guest room. My mom will be with us (God willing) from the beginning of December until the end of January.

Our new dog "Lucy" is the one with the red collar. She is now 5 weeks old. We will pick her up after our vacation in August. She lives near Prag in the Czech Republic. Until then, I’m so glad she gets all this good bonding time with her mom and sibs! It is good for dogs to bond in a pack. When she comes to us, we will need to teach her her place in our pack. When I was in America, I did not have much time for shopping. But I still managed to buy a half a suitcase full of stuff for Lucy. I got her special dog towels, a collar, a vest, a leash, toys etc. I'm planning on pouring a lot of love into my new baby! She will take me on long walks. That will be very good for my health. And she will listen to me and hear all my sadness, hopes and dreams. Dogs are good for people.
