My freezers that make last-minute meals easier. Even though it would be a lot easier to just go to the store and get food, the things that we grow taste so much better and freezing makes them taste almost like they just came from the garden.
DIL's mom who had hip replacement surgery on Veterans day was getting around so well with just a cane, she even jumped up to help clear the table. She also got the okay to drive the day before. She looked so happy and radiant.
My JFK rose that my son got me for mother's day one year. It has struggled ever since I got it and only had one rose and kept trying to send out long runners instead of blooming. This past summer it bloomed a lot and didn't send out those runners. When we got the unusual freeze in October the other roses that had blooms on them lost all their leaves but it had just dropped its blooms and it still has it's leaves and shape. It's the only pretty thing out my window right now. Nothing else has been able to take the shock of hot/cold/repeat that we have had this fall/winter.
This board and all you ladies.
