DEB. THE ONLY KNOWLEDGE I HAVE IS WHAT I HAVE LEARNT THROUGH THE YEARS WITH MY OWN PLANTS AND GARDEN.,.. I WAS TOLD BY OUR FORMER LEADER THAT THAT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE.. ABOUT THE PLASTIC GREENHOUSE, CAN'T VOICE AN OPINION BUT THERE SEEMS TO BE QUITE A FEW ON THE MARKET.

WE HAD SNOW ALL DAY YESTERDAY, IT IS RAINING RIGHT NOW BUT THE SUN IS OUT , SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT ANYMORE

THERE WAS ONE YEAR MY MOM'S TULIPS HAD POKED THROUGH AND THEN WE GOT SNOW.. WE ARE A LOT COLDER HERE AND HER TULIPS DID FINE, SO HOPEFULLY EVELYN'S WILL BE OK

LECATES ENJOY YOUR DAY OFF
EVERYONE ELSE HAVE A GREAT DAY AND TAKE CARE emoticon

The newspaper said it was just going to be cloudy, but it was raining when I went to work.

Lecates - Do you work in the Nursery or have your own Gardening Business? Hope you don't mind me asking you. Sounds like you and Nancy have a good background in Horticulture.

NANCY, I DON'T BLAME YOU---IN THAT KIND OF WEATHER HIBERNATION IS THE WAY TO GO---TOO BAD YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE DOG OUT IN THAT WEATHER---YUCK!
DEB, GLAD YOUR CHILI TURNED OUT WELL.
EVELYN, NICE TO SEE THOSE FIRST SHOOTS
WILSON, DON' T KNOW---MIGHT GOOGLE THE PLANT AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY.
I HAVE OFF THIS EXTRA DAY---TEACHERS HAVE TO GO IN BUT NOT ME---LOL---I LIKE IT THAT WAY! GOING TO BE NICER THAN YESTERDAY---AND YESTERDAY i HAD THE FRONT DOOR OPEN FOR A BIT---THE OTHER COMPANY CALLED YESTERDAY TO CHANGE THEIR TIME---HONESTLY, DON'T THESE COMPANIES WANT OUR BUSINESS? THEY SHOULD HAVE KNOWN THEY HAD MEETINGS WHEN THEY SCHEDULED THE APPOINTMENTS. I AM PRETTY TICKED WITH BOTH OF THEM AND THEY HAD BETTER REALLY SWEETEN THEIR DEALS TO GET MY BUSINESS. I AM CALLING THE ONE WHO DH ALLOWED TO CHANGE THEIR TIME AND TELL THEY THAT IT DOESN'T SUIT ME AND THAT THEY CAN COME A BIT LATER AS I HAVE LUNCH PLANS---THEY HAD BETTER ACCOMODATE ME. GOING TO CHECK OUT MY TULIPS AND SEE HOW MANY HAVE COME UP---ALSO CHECK OUT THE FORYTHSIA BUSH NEXT DOOR TO SEE IF IT IS TIME TO PUT DOWN PRE-EMERGENT OUT FOR THE DARN SAND BURRS. LEARNED THAT TRICK FROM SOMEONE WHO CAME TO THE BOOTH AT THE HOME AND GARDEN SHOW---I LIKE FINDING THOSE KIND OF THINGS OUT---EASIER TO REMEMBER THAN DATES THAT CHANGE EVERY YEAR.

MORE SNOW. THEN RAIN. THEN MORE SNOW. THEN 50 DEGREES. TODAY MORE SNOW! CRAZY!

BEEN GETTING USE OF THE TREADMILL EXCEPT FOR TODAY. JUST COULDNT GET MYSELF MOTIVATED. I HAVE NOT LOST ANY WEIGHT BUT THE BOUNCING HAS STOPPED.

I HAVE HABANERO PLANTS IN A BIG POT FROM LAST YEAR. I BROUGHT THEM IN THE HOUSE LAST FALL BECAUSE THEY WERE WERE FULL OF PEPPERS NOT READY TO BE PICKED. i MOVED THEM INTO BACK BEDROOM FOR THANKSGIVING AND FORGOT ABOUT THEM UNTIL CHRISTMAS. SO I STARTED WATERING THEM AND THEY ARE GETTING ALL NEW LEAVES. WILL THEY PRODUCE AGAIN?

The chili was great, I added hamburger and kidney beans. WOW! Not too bad for my first time making this chili. It's a lot of work to can, but in the end it's worth it.

Evelyn - When I lived in Sparks, Nevada, near Lake Tahoe, our daffodils and tulips were already flowering. Surprisingly they were fine when it snowed. Although in Colorado it might be colder, so I hope your tulips will be fine.

Lecates - I live in Aloha, near Portland,Oregon. I loved the desert many years ago, but since I've been in Oregon, I'm no longer used to not having any trees or rhododendrons.

Today I spent all day in the kitchen canning the tomatoes that I had from last year. I canned 8 pints and 8 quarts of salsa, and 9 pints and 5 quarts of Chili base. The salsa seems to never last very long in this house. Anyway this year I want to grow more cucumbers and squash. I'd like to can some relish and fruit this year.

Anyway my feet are buzzing from standing up all day.

Keep saying I can do this!

COVE, WHERE WILL YOU GO TO GET THE TALK ABOUT GARDENING? I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE THINKING OF WHAT TO PLANT---HAD SOME INTERESTING QUESTIONS TODAY.
EVELYN, GLAD YOU CLEARED THAT UP---YES, YOU ARE SLIPPING INTO SOME BAD HABITS---BUT THAT IS UNDERSTANDABLE---BUT SOMETHING YOU HAVE TO DEAL WITH WITH THAT KIND OF SURGERY. BE GOOD----BUT ENJOY YOUR DINNER OUT TONIGHT.
NANCY, SOUNDS LIKE HORRIBLE CRAP IN YOUR FORECAST. THE WIND HAS BEEN HORRID THE PAST FEW DAYS SO I KNOW HOW YOU FELT. YESTERDAY IN HORTICULTURE I WAS THE ONE HOLDING THE DOOR OPEN SO THE STUDENTS COULD MOVE THE FILLED BASKETS TO THE GREEN HOUSES ON THE CARTS--AND A FEW TIMES THE WIND DIDN'T WANT ME TO OPEN THE DOOR---AND I HAD TO USE MY WHOLE BODY TO KEEP THE DOOR OPEN---THANKFULLY I HAD MY WINTER COAT WITH ME AND HAD THAT ON.
IT WAS INTERESTING AND FUN TO TALK WITH THE OTHER LADIES THERE AT THE TABLE AND WITH THE PEOPLE WHO CAME UP TO ASK QUESTIONS. I GOT IN 2 AND HALF HOURS VOLUNTEER TIME TODAY.
GOT LOTS OF CLEANING DONE THIS MORNING---AND MADE DH HELP---AND GOT THE COFFEE TABLE DECLUTTERED AND ORGANIZED INTO NEAT PILES. BEEN A GOOD DAY TODAY.

NANCY, DON'T BLAME YOU ON JUST LETTING HIS GO NEAR THE PLACE---SOUNDS LIKE A ROYAL MESS---HOPE A PHONE CALL WAKES THEM UP BUT I WOULDN'T COUNT ON IT. IT COULD BE THE FRUIT DOING THAT TO YOU.
NO POOL LAST NIGHT DUE TO A TORNADO WARNING AND THUNDERSTORMS EARLIER---BUT BY THE TIME IT GOT TO CLASS TIME, WE COULD HAVE HAD IT---GRRRR--SO NO POOL TIME THIS WEEK.

Nancy - When we get snow none of our side streets are cleared. Being in a Rainy area, the don't have enough snow plows to go around. They also don't use salt, they use some other kind of chemical to melt the snow. People are crazy over here when they see ice and snow. They still try to get over the icy hill, but they end up stuck on the side of the rode. These people will abandon their car, and of course, the car is towed away. I just stay home, I'm sure you laugh at that, since you always have ice and snow. Its probably natural to have a lot of snow and ice, during Winter. When I lived in Reno, Nevada, no one said stay home, you just had to deal with it. As I get older, I'd rather look out the window and watch the news on who ran off the road. Especially when the news station tells you to stay home.

Take care and keep warm.

Keep saying I can do this!

WE GOT SNOW OVERNIGHT AND SUPPOSED TO GET THE FREEZING RAIN THIS AFTERNOON ACCORDING TO THE WEATHER FORECASTER ON THE NEWS, BUT THE COMPUTER SAYS SNOW ALL DAY, BUT NO ACCUMULATION.. JUST ENOUGH TO PEEVE ME OFF,, WISH THE CITY WOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE SIDES OF THE STREETS, AS SEWERS ARE ALL UNDER ICY SNOWBANKS, WHEN IT DOES MELT THE WATER ACCUMULATED BY THE SLOPE OF THE ENTRANCE WAYS AND THEN FREEZES.. TERRIBLE TRYING TO GET PAST IT AND ALTHOUGH I WALK ON THE STREET I STILL HAVE TO GET TO THE STREET.

LECATES 5.3 IS GOOD FOR YOUR HUBBY, MINE IS USUALLY AROUND THE 6.5 MARK WHICH THE DOCTOR DOES NOT WORRY ABOUT,, THINGS WERE GOING GOOD TILL SHE CHANGED THE MEDS

I CALLED THE PHARMACY YESTERDAY TO SEE IF ANY OF THE CHANGES IN MY MEDS COULD CAUSE ME TO BE VERY LOOSE, AND APPARENTLY NOT,, BUT SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT, 3 DAYS NORMAL, 1 DAY NOT GOING THEN OH MY GOD I LIVE ON THE TOILET THE NEXT DAY,, THE PHARMACIST SAID TO TRY SOMETHING AND IN A FEW DAYS THINGS SHOULD FALL INTO PLACE,, TOO SOON TO TELL.. WONDER IF IT CAN BE ALL THE FRUIT THAT I AM EATING ?? 3 OR 4 A DAY

WELL KIRBY JUMPED OFF THE BED SO I HAD BETTER GET DRESSED AND TAKE HIM OUT

NANCY, DON'T KNOW WHY DOCTORS DO THAT---GLAD YOU ARE SMART ENOUGH NOT TO LET YOUR NUMBERS GET TOO HIGH OR TOO LOW---NEITHER ONE GOOD FOR A PERSON LIVING ON THEIR OWN---DON'T THEY EVER THINK ABOUT THAT? DH'S A1C NUMBER HAD DROPPED ANOTHER POINT==5.3 NOW---SO NOT IN DIABETIC RANGE AT ALL BUT STILL HAS TO TAKE HIS MEDS, WATCH HIS INTAKE, AND CHECK HIS SUGAR---BUT BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY.
PENNY---GOOD LUCK WITH THE FEEDERS.
DEB, I HAVE TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT IT, TOO---MAYBE IF MY DH STAYS ON THE MEND i CAN AFFORD TO DO THINGS FOR ME AND NOT HAVE THE STRESS OF HIS HEALTHY SABOTAGING ME.
EVELYN, SORRY YOU HAVE THE KIDS MORE---GLAD NO SNOW FOR YOU.
ONE HOUR FOG DELAY THIS MORNING---YOU ALL KNOW I AM HAPPY ABOUT THAT! WE ARE SUPPOSED TO GET THAT NASTY WEATHER THAT HIT THE SOUTH YESTERDAY---HOPING NO TORNADOS COME HERE, BUT WE ALMOST NEVER GET THEM SO HOPE IT HOLDS TRUE.
HAVE A GOOD WEDNESDAY!

LECATES YES I FOUND A PROJECT. THE WEATHER DUMPED SOME MORE SNOW ON US. ONLY ABOUT THREE INCHES BUT ENOUGH SO IT HAD TO BE TAKEN CARE OF BEFORE 36 DEGREES AND SUNNY IN A DAY OR SO. SO I PLOWED AND SHOVELING ON TOMORROWS LIST. I ALSO WENT TO STORE AND GOT SUPPLIES FOR SOUP. MADE A BIG POT AND CANNED IT.

I ALSO GOT TIRED OF THIS BOUNCING WEIGHT SO BIT THE BULLET AND TOOK THE TREADMILL APART SO I COULD MOVE IT FROM BACK BEDROOM TO MY LIVING ROOM! NO MORE SITTING IN RECLINER TO WATCH TV! IT WAS TOO BIG TO GET DOWN THE HALL AND AROUND THE CORNER SO IT HAD TO COME APART. emoticon

Congrats on your 9 lb.s, Nancy! You've put in some hard work to stay focused, keep it going.

I'm guilty about bouncing up and down myself on my weight, but I swear I'm going to do better this year. I need to be consistent on how much I want to lose every year, and keep it off. Even if I don't lose it all at one time, I need to not roll back to where I started. I'm shooting for the 160's this year.

The News said we're getting a taste of spring today, but it was in the 30's this morning. I had to scrape my car windows to go to work. The moon looked full and the sky was clear, it was a beautiful sight.

Have a Good Day everyone!

Keep saying I can do this!

IT'S BEEN IN THE HIGH 70'S FOR A FEW DAYS & IN THE 50'S TODAY & 3-6 INCHES OF SNOW TONIGHT INTO TOMORROW. EVERYTHING'S BEGINNING TO BUD OUT. WE FIXED SOME SHEPARDS HOOKS AGAINST A T-POST TO HELP KEEP THEM STURDY FOR the BIRD HOUSES WE PUT UP. WE'VE BEEN GETTING the WHITE PLASTIC GOURD TYPE. THEY'LL BE EASIER TO KEEP CLEAN --I THINK! WE HAVE 3 BIRD STATIONS AROUND THE HOSE. FOR THE LAST 3 YEARS OR SO WE HAVEN'T HAD ANY PESTS TO DEAL WITH. LOTS OF BIRDS. THERE'S NO CATS RUNNING FREE OUTSIDE. WE HAVE THE ONLY FENCE AROUND OUR HOUSE AS THE NEIGHBORS ALL LET THEIR BIG DOGS RUN FREE. THEY DON'T LET ANY CATS COME INTO THE AREA.

YES LECATES THERE ISN'T ANY LEFT ON THE STEPS, WHEN I WENT OUT LAST NIGHT WITH KIRBY I STEPPED ON WHAT WAS LEFT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STEPS (ON THE PATHWAY) AND IT CRACKED,, SO I WILL BE ABLE TO GET RID OF THAT THIS MORNING,, BUT THEN 70% CHANCE OF SNOW THIS EVENING, SO I WANT THE ICE GONE

THE DOCTOR FOR MY SUGAR SHOULD BE CALLING ME THIS WEEK, IT HAS BEEN A MONTH SINCE I SAW HER BUT 3 WEEKS SINCE I STARTED THE NEW MEDS,, OF COURSE MY SUGARS ARE UP AND DOWN AND IF I DID WHAT SHE HAD TOLD ME TO DO THEY WOULD BE CONSTANTLY HIGH. AND THEN DROP LOW, SO I HAVE NOT DECREASED MY INSULIN INTAKE LIKE SHE TOLD ME TO,, I ALSO HAVE TO TALK TO THE PHARMACIST AT SOME POINT TODAY, THEN TOO I COULD GO ON THE NET AND CHECK BUT THE NET ALWAYS SCARES ME,, WITH ALL THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS

WELL I HAD BETTER GET GOING AND DO SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE,, GRANT YOU MY TO DO LIST FOR TODAY IS REMOVE ICE AND DO A LOAD OF LAUNDRY, I HAVE TO WASH NEW JEANS BEFORE I HEM AND WEAR THEM, SO WASH TODAY, SEW TOMORROW emoticon
HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

NANCY, CONGRATS ON THAT LOSS---YOU GO, GF. MUST BE THE EXERCISE IN THE SNOW---TAKES MORE CALORIES TO MAINTAIN THAT BALANCE AND NOT FALL, PLUS THE ARM MOVEMENT OF BREAKING UP THE ICE. DID YOU GET IT OFF THE STEPS WILSON, BETTING YOU WILL COME UP WITH SOME PROJECT.
EVELYN, WATCHING THE KIDS MORE?
RAINY WEATHER FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS---BETTER THAN SNOW.
HAVE A GOOD TUESDAY!

AWESOME ON THE 9 POUNDS NANCY. I'VE BEEN DOING THIS BOUNCE THING ON THE SCALE. BEEN LOSING AND GAINING THE SAME 3 POUNDS ALL MONTH! I THINK IT MAY BE TOO MUCH SALT BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN GOOD ON EVERYTHING ELSE.

FINISHED AT THE FOLKS FOR THE DAY AND NOW A FEW DAYS OFF! DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MYSELF BEINGS I GOT MOST EVERYTHING ON MY LIST DONE ALREADY. A FEW DISHES TO WASH BUT THEY ARE'NT GOING ANYWHERE. LOL ONE PLATE ONE FORK ONE BOWL AND A SPOON. THEY CAN WAIT FOR AFTER BREAKFAST TOMORROW.

WE GOT RAIN AND 39 DEGREES THEN COOLED OF AND FROZE AND SNOWED ON TOP OF THAT. WALKING IS MORE LIKE SKATING!

I LOVE SPENDING SOMEONE ELSE'S MONEY,, GOING OUT AGAIN THIS MORNING FOR ANOTHER FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY, SHE WANTED BRUNCH SO MY SISTER WILL PICK ME UP AT ABOUT 10 BUT THEY ALL SEEM TO WANT TO TRY THE BREAKFAST MENU, WHICH IS FINE WITH ME

EVERYTHING HAS TURNED TO ICE AGAIN,, I THINK I WILL PUT A BIT OF SALT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STAIRS AND WHEN I COME HOME HOPEFULLY I WILL BE ABLE TO GET THE ICE CHOPPER UNDERNEATH IT TO LIFT IT A LITTLE AND THROW IT UP ONTO THE SNOWBANK,, GOODNESS IT IS SO DANGEROUS WALKING ANYWHERE BUT DOWN THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET.

MY DAUGHTER, SON ON LAW AND GRAND DAUGHTER ARE COMING FOR DINNER TONIGHT, I TOLD THEM I HAD NO DESSERT AND THEY SAID IF THEY WANT IT THEY WILL BRING IT,, ON SATURDAY WHEN THEY CAME HERE AFTER THE RESTAURANT I TOOK OUT THE LAST OF THE DATE SQUARES OUT OF THE FREEZER FOR THEM AND MY DAUGHTER TOOK THE LAST 3 HOME.I HAVE BEEN DOING VERY GOOD ON THE WEIGHT CONTROL AND I AM DOWN 9 POUNDS IN THE LAST MONTH, SO I DON'T KEEP SWEETS IN THE HOUSE.. NOT THAT I DON'T WANT THEM I JUST DON'T HAVE THEM IN THE HOUSE, THAT WAY I DON'T EAT THEM

Good to see that you both got out of the house.

Nancy - I guess you still have more snow coming, I'm not sure when Spring is normal for your area.

Lecates - I've been a Ham Radio Operator for about 3 years, so it is still new to me. I belong to the Amateur Radio Emergency Service and 2 other radio clubs. It's fun to be among Engineers, Military Vets, Firemen and many other people that care to help the community when an emergency happens.

NANCY, DID YOU ENJOY DINNER OUT? WHAT MOVIE DID YOU ALL WATCH? ALWAYS A NUISANCE WHEN THE STORM DRAINS ARE BLOCKED.
DEB, ARE YOU JUST GETTING INTO HAM RADIO OR HAVE YOU DONE IT IN THE PAST? SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.
I DID GET OUTSIDE AND BURNED SOME BRANCHES IN THE CHIMINEA BUT ONLY THE TOP THIRD OF MY PILE, THE REST WERE TOO DAMP FROM ALL THE RAIN AND SNOW WE HAD LAST WEEKEND----BUT THEY SHOULD DRY OUT A BIT WITH THE TOP THIRD GONE. DH FINISHED PUTTING AWAY THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN THE BACK YARD AND FINISHED ORGANIZING THE SHED. HE COOKED BURGERS OUT ON THE GRILL LAST NIGHT---THEY WERE SO GOOD---AND TODAY WILL COOK STEAKS OUT THERE---BUT RIGHT AFTER CHURCH AS WE ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE RAIN LATER ON BUT THE SAME NICE TEMPS AS YESTERDAY.
HAVE A NICE SUNDAY!

Nancy - That sure is crazy weather you're having. Doesn't sound good about the sewer blockage. Portland always has a problem when the drains when it floods. The Willamette River has sewage seeping into it which flows into the Columbia River. They're still working on fixing that problem.

Lecates - Hope you had a good day shopping, I bought an antenna and wiring from the Hamfest, but I ended buying the rest, at the regular Ham Radio Outlet(HRO) store. I have just a couple of things I need and I can turn the radio on. I'm excited, since it has been almost 2 years since I bought the radio at the SEAPAC Ham Radio Convention.

Keep saying I can do this!

WELL HE DIDN'T WALK MUCH TODAY,, THIS MORNING ALTHOUGH IT WAS STARTING TO RAIN, THE SIDEWALKS HAD BEEN CLEARED AND WHATEVER SNOW HAD FALLEN WAS STILL SOFT.. THIS AFTERNOON WAS A DIFFERENT STORY,, THE RAIN THAT STARTED EARLY THIS MORNING TURNED TO FREEZING RAIN. I WOULD HAVE NEEDED ICE SKATES AS SO WOULD KIRBY.. WE WENT 2 HOUSE DOWN WALKING ON THE STREET AND HE AND I WERE READY TO COME BACK.. JUST CAME IN FROM TAKING HIM OUT AGAIN, RAIN HAS STOPPED BUT THERE IS A LOT OF ICE OUT THERE,, WE STAYED IN THE DRIVEWAY.. HOPEFULLY THE CITY WILL PASS BEFORE I HAVE TO GO OUT IN THE MORNING, MAYBE EVEN PUT SOME ABRASIVES ON THE SIDEWALKS

THE LIGHTS HAVE BEEN FLICKERING ALL EVENING, THERE ARE NO STREET LIGHTS ON, GUESS THE WIRES ARE COVERED WITH ICE FROM THE FREEZING RAIN WE HAVE HAD
GOOD NIGHT ALL AND TAKE CARE

CRAZY WEATHER HERE---NOW GOING TO BE NEAR 60 TODAY---ALREADY NEARLY 50 THIS MORNING---BUT RAIN AND LOTS OF WIND---HOPEFULLY THE WIND WILL HELP DRY UP THE GROUND SOME BEFORE THE RAINS COME BACK THIS AFTERNOON.
DARN IT, NO DELAY---LOL---BUT NOT SURPRISED ABOUT THAT. BACK TO WORK I GO---WE SHOULD BE GETTING MORE PLANTS IN THIS WEEK FOR THE GREENHOUSE---LAST WEEK WE GOT IN GERBER DAISIES, DIANTHUS, AND SOMETHING ELSE THAT SLIPS MY MIND---NOT SURE WHAT WE GET IN THIS WEEK---IF NOT RAINING THIS AFTERNOON, I MIGHT GO SPEND A LITTLE TIME OUT IN THE GREENHOUSE TO GET A SPRING FIX---LOL
HAVE A GOOD TUESDAY!

IF THE WIND WAS NOT BLOWING THEN IT WILL BE A NICE DAY HERE. STILL IN THE FIFTIES AROUND HERE. SNOW IN THE MOUTAINS WHERE IT CAN STAY. I WENT TO THE POOL TODAY AS I DIDN'T HAVE TO BABYSIT.

NANCY, I THINK WE ENDED UP WITH ABOUT 7 INCHES OF SNOW---CRAZY.
DEB, YES, IT WILL WORK ON ALL BULBS---BUT DON'T HAVE TO DO IT WITH DAFFODIL BULBS AS SQUIRRELS AND MOLES HATE THEM SO THEY AVOID THEM. I GET MY RED PEPPER AT SAM'S CLUB---CHEAPER THAT WAY---IT WILL LAST A WHILE, TOO--AND I HAVE A HEAVY HAND WHEN I PLANT JUST TO MAKE SURE THE LITTLE THIEVES LEAVE MINE ALONE.
PENNY, GLAD YOU ARE FEELING A BIT STRONGER---I AGREE WITH YOU, RATHER BE OUTSIDE PLAYING IN MY GARDENS THAN DOING HOUSEWORK INSIDE----LOL
NOT GOING TO THE POOL TONIGHT---TOO YUCKY OUTSIDE ALTHOUGH IT IS WARMING UP.

IT'S BEEN QUITE A WHILE SINCE I'VE BEEN HERE BUT MY STRENGTH IS SLOWLY RETURNING. IN FACT, I'VE GOT 2 ORDERS OF FLOWER STUFF COMING IN THIS SPRING. I TOLD MY DD THAT IF I WERE RICH I'D HIRE SOMEONE TO DO MY HOUSEWORK WHILE I DID MY YARD WORK! SHE SAID I WAS CRAZY 7 SHOULD DO IT THE OTHER WAY. HOWEVER, I LOVE BEING OUTSIDE! AND, YES, WE HAD 2 INCHES OF ICE/SNOW. IT'S GETTING UP TO 40 f OUT & IS SUPPOSED TO RAIN. UP TO 70 BY FRIDAY. MISSOURI WEATHER NEVER STAYS THE SAME!!

DEB, SQUIRRELS JUST LIKE THE BULBS. YOU CAN PLANT THESE OUTSIDE BUT NO GUARANTEE THEY WILL REBLOOM NEXT YEAR---THEY MIGHT THE FOLLOWING YEAR---FORCED BULBS ARE FUNNY---BUT IF YOU WANT TULIPS IN YOUR YARD NEXT YEAR, HERE IS THE TRICK---RED PEPPER---DIG YOUR HOLE, SPRINKLE SOME IN THE HOLE, PUT IN THE BULB, SPRINKLE MORE RED PEPPER, THEN COVER IT UP---AND I ALSO SPRINKLE RED PEPPER WHERE I PLANTED IT SO THAT I KNOW WHERE I PLANTED IT IN CASE I WANT TO GO BACK AND PLANT MORE. HAVEN'T LOST A BULB TO A SQUIRREL OR A MOLE YET.
EVELYN, I THINK I GOT YOUR SNOW.
NANCY, CUTE PLAY ON SPRING!
YES, I WOKE UP TO A FEW INCHES OF SNOW---AND ALREADY DIDN'T HAVE SCHOOL---COULDN'T MOTHER NATURE WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW? LOL SUPPOSED TO WARM UP AND TURN TO RAIN EVENT THIS AFTERNOON---SURE HOPE THAT IS TRUE.
HAVE A GOOD PRESIDENT'S DAY!

It was supposed to be constantly raining this weekend, but it was just cloudy, with occasional sprinkling. Happy Valentines to everyone.

I was invited to a dinner that the City of Beaverton had honored all the volunteers for Emergency and community service, and I won a pot of planted tulips. I'm hoping I can keep these tulips from getting eaten by the squirrels.

Keep saying I can do this!

It is so easy to forget about the Northern climate as I look out at the sun rising and plan for temps in the low 80's... I'm from MN and know... also know about the wonderful springs, summers and fall... but, we have them too in the South - just different...

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

5'1.5" - I shrunk from 5'4"
Summer: Minesota
Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.
