Happy Father's Day! :) Gardening with my dad today :)

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! :) Gardening joys, with my dad! :) my family and i want to take this time, to wish everyone, a very happy Father's day, and we thank you all so very much, for your awesome happy father's day wishes for my dad. :) i shared your wishes with my dad. :) We send very special thanks. :) my dad is enjoying a happy father's day. :) We gave him his gifts today, and we also went shopping at home depot, and malebra's farm :) my dad and i are on a gardening mission! :) hehe! :) We are attempted to load up one of our gardens, with more plants, and to protect the plants, from some insects/bugs. We browsed around home depot today, and the garden greenhouses at malerba's farm. :) we bought some radish seeds, and some cucumber plants. :) We've been talking about gardening, and i also did some planting today in the sunflower field of hope and unfailing faith. :)
On this day, we think of dad's, celebrating dad's, and all of the very special memories they have given us over the years. :) Dad's are very special. :) i would love to share a nice memory with everyone. :) when i was a kid, i use too be really into baseball cards collecting, sports cards, football, basketball. :) some of my favorite memories, were when my dad and i would go to the baseball card shop every friday, and also when we went to the sports shack in the city mall, to buy packs of cards. :) my dad and i would buy packs of cards, open them up, and find our favorite player's cards. :) i remember one time the sports shack was having sales, on packs of 1987 TOPPS baseball cards, for only $1. :) i remember we took 3 trips to the city mall that day, to buy some packs of cards. :) it was always so much fun, to buy those cards, and we still to this day, are very much interested in sports, cards collecting. :) over the years, we have saved all of our cards, a collection, that spans, nearly 50,000 sports cards. :) We love, and cherish our collection, and will always treasure it. :) my dad and i use too go card hunting, at places like the flea market in Rhode Island, and also to yard sales all around our area. :) We love cards, and the hobby will always be, a very special part of our lives. :) Happy father's day dad! :) We love you! :)
It's a really nice day today! :) this morning, my sister Jenn, and little Michael came over to visit. :) We were all gathering around under our front tree, as we had some nice early weather. :) we gave my dad his happy father's day cards, and gifts. :) Kayla and Taylynn made cards for my dad. :) he is so happy, and was so excited with us all gathered around him, and he opening up his gifts, and cards. :) i gave my dad the lighthouse themed card, a bingo lottery ticket, and also gave him lots of his favorite treats i bought for him yesterday at the dollar store. :) it warms our hearts, and makes us smile, that my dad, and all of the dad's in our family, are having a nice father's day. :) both my brother Charlie and Bobby, have children. :) my nephews Cj, Robbie, and also niece Katie. :) It's so special, celebrating these wonderful times, with family, friends, and joyful spirit of the day. :) i've been thinking of you all often today, and keeping you all very close within my heart. :) during these nice times, we're always with eachother in spirit. :)
i spent some nice time with my dad today. : )our Gardening time! :) my dad and i have been looking forward to going to home depot, to stock up on some more soil. :) before we went out to shop today, i did some big gardening in the sunflower field of hope and unfailing faith. :) i replanted 6 potato plants, in the garden, as the potato spuds weren't sprouting in the garden tote we used, as the soil got too wet, so i decided to plant the potatoes in between our pepper plants, and i also planted, lots and lots of string beans, around the out corners of the garden, and put some nice soil around the stem bases of the plants. :) i was so very into this! :) it felt great to be enjoying some gardening. :) my dad came out back, and we were looking at the plants. :) We spotted a hummingbird visiting our yard today. :) there's 2 hummingbirds, a green one, and a black one. :) such cute and adorable little birds. :)
after 12pm, my dad and i cruised town to home depot. :) We drove past malerba's farm, the golf course, and the peaceful pond. :) it was a nice car ride. :) we were discussing nature, and gardening. :) at home depot, my dad and i browsed around at stuff there, we looked at fencing, and also browsed around at the plants. :) We bought 7 bags of soil. :) 3 organic bags of soil, and 4 top soil bags of soil. :) it'll keep us nicely stocked up on soil for a while. :) my dad and i were talking, and decided to also go to malerba's farm on the way home. :) sweet!!! :) We wanted to look for radish plants, and cucumber plants. :) we've been having a major garden issue, in one of our gardens. on the side of the addition/driveway, something, a type of bug, or insect, has aggressively been eating, our cucumber plants, and string beans plants. it doesn't bother the tomato or pepper plants, but has been getting to the other plants, including sunflowers. my dad and i are hoping to fix the issue, we've been using vanilla extra with water, lemon juice with water, this one insect/bug, is very hungry bug, so we decided, we're gonna put more organic soil in this garden, and are hoping to really get on top of things, when it comes to his garden, as it's one of our favorite gardening areas, and we really want to grow string beans, and cucumbers in this garden. :) i'll keep everyone updated on how things are going. :) This afternoon, my dad and i planted corn plants, and cucumber plants. :) We're determined to get the garden rocking and rolling again, with positive growing energy, in the garden on the side of our drive-way :)
We're enjoying a nice day. :) Celebrating all Dad's :) it was so nice going out with my dad today, to garden shop, and spending time in our yard and gardens. :) We love all of the very special memories being made. :) my family and i are doing well, and are in good spirits. :) my dad's going to scratch is bingo lottery ticket tonight, while resting, and is looking forward to having some snacks too. :) We're so happy, to help make hsi father's day very special. :) We have so much more to look forward too, this upcoming week. :) with nature walks, gardening, and we also have sweet treats tuesday,Kayla's graduation on wednesday, post office adventure, ghost hunters party, and lots more, leading us into a super fun graduation themed baking friday adventure. :) Life is very special, and precious, each day is a gift, and a blessing. :) my family and i thank you all so very much, for all that you do for us. :) You all are wonderful friends, and bring lots of great joy, happiness, and peace to our days, and our lives. :) We deeply appreciate everything, with all of our hearts. :) BIG GROUP HUG :)tonight, i'm gonna enjoy some watermelon for snack, and going to write a letter, and some cards. :) my family and i hope everyone is enjoying a peaceful sunday, and a nice weekend. :)

Sounds like you enjoyed a GREAT DAY with DAD!!! It\'s so special to spend time with Dad on HIS DAY... I admit, I spent a good part of my day thinking of my Daddio... I miss him soooooooooooooooo much...

Guy went north for the day to spend the day with Grover. I know he\'s very relieved that Grover is still in his shop tinkering with his projects... Guy is exactly the same!

I spent a good part of the day checking out the farm and plants researching online questions as they arrisee... Quiet day, did one load of laundry and read my new book! I\'m really enjoying reading again now that my EYES can SEE!!! I\'m a happy camper~~~

Love to you and Mom and DAD and everyone in CT!!! Have a great evening!!!
