My Arms Aren't Long Enough

A few things to share; my first pickin's of the season and I'm so excited!

Okay, okay, I know radish is Super easy to grow, but hey, it's the little things right?

These could have probably stayed in the ground a bit longer, but once I saw red peeking out the top of the soil, I just couldn't help myself. 

I didn't even wait for the kids!  Shhh..

I guess I'm just a big kid.

I'm just happy that something is growing in my garden.  And I had to photograph them to document.

I'm hoping the photos are in focus though.  I had to put my Cannon on the manual setting because the auto focus was focusing on something other than on what I wanted it to focus on.  And I normally just snap photos on automatic.

Which brings me to item #2 I have to share;

My eyes are bad.

Really bad...for me.

I've never worn glasses and now when I read, I need to hold the book out at arms length! 

My arms aren't long enough anymore :(

The 40's are rough.....everything begins to take a dive.  I thought 40 was supposed to be the new 20.

Question.....Do I need to wear my reading glasses to use the manual focus on my camera?!

Happy Tuesday! Pin It

Forty will seem like the new 20 when you're 60 :-). This is my first visit to your blog, so I've spent some time browsing through your earlier post. I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed my visit and will be back often to see what you've been doing. I hope the day treats you well. Blessings...Mary

My garden is finally coming around after being drowned by rain many times. Your radishes look great. Thanks for stopping by my blog...oh and yeah...I have a horrible time trying to see...I take my glasses off in the house because I can't see...up close...and usually end up losing them! lol Good times...
