The first few are old ones.Check out the christmas cactus blooming in with a jade.It was a piece that broke off during the summer and I just stuck it in pot.When you see the purple plant with a brown butterfly on it you are are going to see all the plants Bill got.
This is for Patti.I haven't been able to thin these.Will they die on me like this
Well I am almost finished with gifts. Kids are all getting money. Not a lot. But I made all the labels and put money in cards.So that is all done.
The only gifts we bought were 3 Hess trucks and 3 story books that records you reading it. I will wrap trucks shortly and do books tomorrow.
I have no idea what I will do for Bill. It has to be something special.
He brought home a bunch more flowers for back yard. It was too late to take a picture.Will do that tomorrow
I have been wanting to cook something in a crock pot with no liquid but couldn't find anywhere that said it was ok. So I went for it today.I used my oldest crock pot.I put potatoes,carrots and a chicken breast and a couple of thighs.I used some spices on stuff but no liquid. It worked great.The meat had enough juices that there was some broth in bottom. Then I opened a can of chicken gravy that I heated up. Just used a little of it. Bill made a pig of himself and he never does that. It turned out good this time.Will try it again with different kind of meat next time. Reduces amount of salt and calories in meal.
I am not baking cookies etc but am going to melt different colored chocolate and put on pretzels rods. I may coat a few ritz. Bill picked up chocolate a while ago.
we have so much to do before Saturday and we are so behind. We are just going to get a couple of platters . I wanted carpet cleaned but think I have waited too late.
Oh well.Need to get these trucks wrapped. Hope your day was good.
Bill did the grocery shopping and did pretty good.It has been a quiet day. I missed not going to store but we decided if I was having trouble at home I needed to just keep my butt here. Things haven't been so great but it could be much worse.I am not confined to a bed.I can still take care of myself and still do kitchen stuff. It could be much worse so I will just be thankful for what I do have and can still do.
Bill's plants have already attracted some butterflys.He is getting a few more for one small empty spot.
Our family Christmas party is saturday. It will be a full house.We are hoping it is a nice day so a lot of people can go outside.The smokers will for sure.
Watching another Christmas story on TV.Seem to be even more this year.
I have to admit I am enjoying my Christmas trees. And my Christmas cactus gets new blooms each day.
OK I am off to watch TV and play Words with Friends on facebook.Hope you had a good weekend .
Today was much better. I sleep late in mornings and Bill goes where ever. He made a trip to Home Depot and I have proof he can't go there either without buying.
He brought home some plants for butterfly garden as most of my plants in there are not blooming. We are having our family Christmas party next Sat and he wanted to add some color. Here is what h got for lower part of garden.Needs a few for upper part tho.
Ok Now do you remember the plant Bill got me that started with 2 flowers and 2 big blooms that finally bloomed making it have 4 flowers. The flowers died but it looked like it might bloom again.And it has.Once again it has 2bloomed and 2 buds.. Pretty cool
And here are some of my grand daughter Felicia and GGD Abigail
I have been having Bill do more stuff in check book.I have always written check and paid bills. I was checking for a check on laptop for him to put in book and decided to check charge card. Almost fell out of chair when I saw a charge of almost $800 to Walmart.com. Took an hour and 5 different people but it is suppose to be fixed. They are sending us a new card.They said it happens all the time. Since it is consider fraud if over $500 had to talk to different people.She said it should be off account by monday.
I finally got my nails done today and am in a better mood. I am super behind in replying to all your comments. I am sorry about that.
Ok Hope you are having a good weekend. Will try to limit my whinny blogs
