T Stands for Feeling Better

A big thank you for all the well wishes. I am feeling much better with no pain this AM. Hopefully it will stay this way. 
Today is the T-Tuesday over at Elizabeth and Bluebeard's.
I am looking forward to seeing what the T-Gang has been up to. Other than resting and keeping my low back in check, I did get a drawing done. 

 One night we had pizza

 On another day I made lemon curd on graham cracker crust Mr. M. added a ton of cool whip.

since I missed Garden Saturday post here are a few shots from last week. OMG! All of these plants have doubled in size already.
 Beans and Squash

 Blooming but no bees. Self pollination

 3 of the 5 buckets of potatoes

 It was a nice day for these to be out

 Hostas and Pork n Bean succulent

 These come back every year

 Herbs and lettuces

 And my hot water with lemon

I hope everyone is well and that life is treating you with kindness.
Be Safe Out There and Wear A Mask!
Honor and integrity in art, in life.

  6. Garden is awesome, keep up the good work, my potatoes have finally decided to activate themselves. I planted one zucchini, it’s taking over and my dry beans are rocketing out of the dirt. We had pizza too one night, no lemon goodie for me, but I did make a second batch of the sticky buns, all to ourselves this time, no sharing. Cheers and stay well my friend....Donna

  7. I'm glad you are feeling much better. It's amazing what a little rest will do for a back. And your drawing is beautiful.

    You went to town baking while you were resting. That lemon curd looks good, but you need to check out the ingredients in Cool Whip. It tastes horrible in my book.

    Your veggies are doing great. I think you are going to have a harvest very soon, too.

    Lemon water is great, but I'll drink mine cold, dear. That is sure a nice lemon. thanks for sharing your drawing, your baking, your veggies, and your lemon water with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.
