Sunflowers heavens......

Few years ago , I told my husband how much I love sunflowers and when it comes to flower planting I like to make a *splash*!!!!!!!!*grin*

We have tree pastures in our farm , a total of 20 acres. Mark reduced one of the pastures , only by tree acres where he and I have planted 11 pear trees, 11 apples trees. We are planning to add this coming fall , 11 cherries trees, and 11 peaches and that will complete our small orchard .
Well, mean while , he planted all this sunflowers... isn't it wonderful?

I was out of town for almost a week . I got home feeling very sick. I have been sick for while and instead of getting better , I got worse. The hotel I was staying must had some kind of mold because I had such a hard time breathing.
I got home and start to feel better..... oh , how I missed my family and my farm!*grin*



Gabriela, my daughter , made an amazing supper tonight ... roasted herb chicken, homemade mashed potatoes, corn on the cob, fruit salad.... yum!
After that, Mark called me to go for a walk.... little did I know about the sunflowers..... smiles.... I have learned to take my camera every time I go for walks close to evening time because I never know if Silvano, the fox, will surprise me!*grin*



I much enjoyed our walk and I can tell you that I am breathing much better now.....










Isn't it pretty?









Oh.... this was my last surprise.... blindie , our blind cow, gave birth while I was gone...... doesn't her baby looks just like her?

Patricia dear-it is so nice to see you again! I am so sad that you were feeling sick; have you been to the doctor? I know that you had a sinus infection. Your farm is so beautiful and those "tournesol" are magnificent! What a rich life you lead. God bless you and please get better NOW! Anita (The cow is so darling with her baby!)

Sweet Anita~ so...SO nice to hear from you my friend!
Yes, I have been at the doctors and even finished my antibiotics, but I have a feeling that the hotel and all the antique stuff made me have trouble breathing. I am 100% better and enjoying been home with my family.... nothing can compare to that!*grin*
the sunflowers also called Girasol in Portuguse... are beautiful in deed, smiles.*thank you*
Anita, how are your papers coming along? How long will you need to finish it?
Much love to you...

Anita .... one of my favorite French singer is Mireille Mathieu... I will always remember her singing - La vie en rose. My dad used to have a LP , LOL, long long ago and when he would come back from his trips to Paris he would play that.... I just heard at your blog...ohhhh, nice feeling, * big grin!

Hello my dearest!!! I am so glad to hear that you are feeling much better! I worry about my friends! I enjoy how all of our beautiful romance languages seem to be related to each other...I love "Girasol"! I have never heard of your singer Mireille Mathieu, but I must check her out on line. Thank you for asking about my thesis; I have made very good progress. I have finished two out of three chapters!! My adviser is pleased with my progress, but he is in Mexico and I haven't heard from him again. I am trying to finish everything before the end of the summer so I can get to BLOGGING AGAIN! God bless you Patricia, Anita

Anita dear, I didn't know the singer Edith Piaf, but I see she was and still is very famous singer. I ABSOLUTELY love her singing.... it makes me think ( and dream) grin, of Paris!*grin*
Anita, about your thesis... is it in French? I know you are a French teacher.... I was wondering.... Is this for a master degree?God bless you, my dear friend...
A bientot~

Hello precious Patricia!
No, my masters will be in education, although I wish I could have done it in French. I will not get a pay raise if my masters isn't in education! My thesis is centered around assessment, particularly "Performance Assessment" which is a very interesting and useful topic for my line of work. Since I teach in an immersion school, alternative approaches to assessment are vital in measuring what a student really knows and goes beyond the language component which is often distorted by the students' second language limitations. Whew! I better get back to writing! Much love, Anita

I have a little dry cough left over but I am doing so much better.Thank you for the compliment ...smiles.... you can tell that my hair is also latin, no?Love~

Hello again!
Yes, I have very dark hair-very Mexican. My family has a lot of red hair, however! We come in all shapes and colors! :) I am relieved to hear that your cough is better. WOrking with children during the school year puts me at risk of upper respiratory infections and I have had my share of those in the last 5 years. Last year however, I was lucky to not contract that horrid cough that lasts for literally 3 months. Que tu retrouve ta santé! Bisous, Anita
