NO SNOW ON THE GROUND BUT IT COLD OUT THERE. THE PEA SOUP WAS GOOD AND JUST ENOUGH SO THERE WAS NO LEFT OVERS. DH ATE THREE BOWLS. ANOTHER MONTH BEFORE I CAN DO ANY GARDENING HERE.

If anyone is interested ...

FREE Live Basic Canning Workshop from Creative Homemaking

Canning Basics for Beginners: Boiling Water vs. Pressure Canning

Next week she will be giving two free canning workshops to give you an overview of the benefits of canning and the differences between pressure canning and boiling water canning.


There are two times to choose from: Tuesday, April 5th at 11:00 a.m. PST and Thursday, April 7th at 6:00 p.m. PST. There will be a video replay of each workshop if you are not able to attend, but you have to be signed up in order to receive the link to the replay.


If you have never attended a live workshop before, I will send you a link the morning of the workshop. You just click on the link and it will take you to a web page where you will view the workshop via live video. There will also be a live question and answer session at the end of each workshop. You will be able to communicate with me via a chat interface on the page.

GOOD MORNING. ALTHOUGH IT IS SUNNY, IT IS COOL, 26 AND ONLY GOING TO 48 BUT THE WIND IS SOMETHING ELSE AGAIN,, I WENT BACK INTO MY HEAVY COAT YESTERDAY
LECATES, MY GRAND DAUGHTER IS A STAY AT HOME GAL, NOT LIKE HER SISTER AT ALL, SO NO WORRY FOR HER MAKING PLANS, IF SHE DOES MAKE PLANS SHE MAKES THEM WEEKS IN ADVANCE AND TELLS HER MOM. MY DAUGHTER DROPPED IN LAST EVENING SO TODAY I WILL STITCH THE LAST OF THE THROW AND SHE CAN TAKE IT HOME TONIGHT,, MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN SEWING IS THREADING THE DARN NEEDLE, EVEN WITH A NEEDLE THREADER

HOPE YOUR MAGNOLIAS BLOSSOM FOR YOU, THEY SMELL SO NICE

HAVE A LOT TO DO TODAY SO I HAD BETTER START BY GOING OUT WITH KIRBY AND THEN GETTING THE SPAGHETTI SAUCE INTO THE CROCK POT, HER REQUEST AND IT ALWAYS GOES OVER WELL. I ALSO HAVE TO VACUUM AND CLEAN UP A BIT emoticon

HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

LOVELY DAFFODILS. I AM HOPING MY MAGNOLIAS SEND OFF A FEW BLOSSOMS THIS YEAR---THEY ARE NOT VERY OLD AND HAVENT' DONE THAT YET. MY SON HAD 4 HUGE MAGNOLIA TREES IN HIS YARD---THEY SHOULD SMELL REALLY GOOD---HAVE TO REMIND MYSELF TO TELL HIM TO LET ME KNOW WHEN THEY ARE IN BLOOM SO I CAN GO ENJOY THE FRAGRANCE. THIS IS THEIR FIRST SPRING AT THIS HOUSE SO I AM INTERESTED TO SEE WHAT HAS SPRUNG UP IN THEIR YARD.
NANCY, HOPE SHE HASN'T MADE OTHER PLANS FOR SATURDAY---LOL---GOOD LUCK ON GETTING THAT PROJECT FINISHED
I AM SO SORE FROM YESTERDAY---THE WIND WAS HORRIBLE, ESP. WHEN WE WERE BY THE WATER, BUT IT WAS NICE IN THE FOREST FOR OUR HIKE----BUT THE UPS AND DOWNS OF THAT HIKE WAS HARD ON MY LEGS---I DID PICK UP A FALLEN BRANCH AND USED IT AS A WALKING STICK---REALLY HELPED ON THE INCLINES. HOPING THE POOL WATER WORKS THE KINKS OUT TONIGHT.
COLD TODAY BUT WARMING UP TOMORROW---HAD TO BRING MY RADISHES IN LAST NIGHT---GLAD DH THOUGHT OF THAT FOR ME.
HAVE A GOOD WEDNESDAY.

It's easy to change if you would like...Just go to our team page and on the top right side of the page (under our team picture) is an area called Team Leader Actions...
The one in the box says Edit This Team...Just click on Go...
You will get a page with the options of Category...
Probably Hobbies and Interests...as the main category.
Not sure but you can go over the list and decide...
Don't for get to SAVE your changes... :}

Today is Jimmy's 65th Birthday...We are going to dinner with his brother, My brother and his son (coming up from Columbus to Cleveland) to a Japanese Hibachi !

It's so cold here but the Spring Flowers are still doing good !!! Remarkably !
My Daffodils in my Mom's vase and Mini ones my brother bought me for Easter !

EVELYN, THE TULIPS I HAVE IN BLOOM ARE THE COLORS IN YOUR AVATAR.
WELCOME TO OUR NEW MEMBER--ALWAYS NICE TO HAVE A NEW MEMBER. NOT SURE WHY WE ARE IN THAT CATEGORY---THINK IT WAS THE ONE THAT THEY PUT THE TEAM IN WHEN THEY FIRST DID CATEGORIES WAY WAY BACK WHEN SPARK FIRST STARTED AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO CHANGE IT----THIS WAS THE ORIGINAL TEAM FOR GARDENING HERE ON SPARK.
NANCY, GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO CREATE WHAT SHE WANTED. THAT WILL KEEP YOU BUSY FOR A BIT, OR DID YOU GET IT DONE ALREADY?
DEB, HOW IS THE GREENHOUSE DOING? WE ARE HAVING A LOT OF WIND HERE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS ---HOPE YOURS IS NOT BEING BLOWN ABOUT ANY.
WE GOT THE NEW RAISED BED BUILT YESTERDAY---WE DID THE BOTTOM IN THE MORNING AND THEN CAME IN AND RESTED---i WAS SURPRISED WHEN DH WANTED TO FINISH IT IN THE AFTERNOON---BUT IT WAS EASIER TO DO THAT PART THAN GET IT STARTED. IT IS 2 FEET WIDE AND 20 INCHES DEEP---TOOK A LOT OF DIRT FOR IT BUT THE TOMATOES WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH IT THIS YEAR---WE PLAN ON BUILDING MORE BUT GOING TO ADD JUST ONE A YEAR AS IT IS NOT CHEAP AND WE HAVE OTHER PROJECTS TO SPEND OUR MONEY ON THIS YEAR. WE DID START BUYING THE BRICKS FOR THE NEXT SECTION WE PLAN TO COVER---AND I TOLD DH WE SHOULD PROBABLY DO THE ONE AREA WITH SMALLER BRICKS THAT IS KIND OF IN THE MIDDLE SECTION---DOING IT MORE FOR WEED CONTROL THAN ANYTHING ELSE BUT IT WILL BE NICE AREA TO HAVE SEATING----WE ALREADY HAVE SOME THERE NOW.
GOING ON A FIELD TRIP TODAY TO AN ENVIRONMENTAL CENTER ---GOING TO BE A VERY WINDY DAY AND WE WILL BE OUTSIDE FOR MOST OF IT---AND NOT ALL THAT WARM EITHER----GOING TO TAKE LOTS OF LAYERS.
HAVE A GOOD DAY---OH, I BOUGHT A EASTER LILY YESTERDAY FOR A DOLLAR--WILL PLANT IT OUTSIDE IN ANOTHER MONTH AND NEXT YEAR I WILL HAVE A LOVELY LILY ABOUT JULY FROM IT.

Hi Everyone, I am new to the team but not to Gardening ! I've been doing it most of my life and Love It !!! Nothing like going out to gather what I will make for lunch and dinner.

Deb...That's great that you have a green house to get things going in... I have a small portable one that has 2 shelves...Perfect for me as only 2 of us live here...
I don't start many seeds but it's a great place to put the plants I buy until the ground is ready to plant...And here in NE Ohio, one never knows when that will be !!! :}
It was 75 here yesterday and the high today is going to be 44F !

I have a question...When I went to spin the team bonus points, I noticed that this gardening team is under the Fashion Category !!! ??? Hmmm....

DEB---WOOHOO TO USING THE GREENHOUSE. WATCH THE WATERING OF THE PLANTS OUT THERE---BEING IN A GREENHOUSE WITH HIGHER HEAT, THEY MIGHT NEED 2 WATERINGS A DAY WHEN THE TEMPS RISE LIKE THAT.
EVELYN, GLAD YOU SHARED THE GRANDKIDS WITH THE OTHER ONE---LOL
NANCY, DID YOU HAVE A NICE TIME WITH FAMILY?
MY MOM LOVED MY NEW SHOWER---SHE CAME TO DINNER ALONG WITH MICHAEL---WE HAD A ROAST BEEF---HIS CHOICE SINCE IT WAS IN CELEBRATION OF HIS BIRTHDAY THIS PAST WEEK.
RAINY START BUT THE SUN IS SUPPOSED TO COME OUT ALONG WITH A LOT OF WIND. WE NEED TO GO BUY SOME POTTING SOIL THAT IS ON SALE FOR THAT NEW RAISED BED.
HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!

My daughter did the Easter egg hunt with the kids and made some deviled eggs. Prepared a ham with asparagus and mashed potatoes on the side. The weather was sunny so the kids were able to do their hunt in the front hard. It was a perfect day.

Started a second set of seed trays inside, and put the other 2 trays out in the Greenhouse yesterday. Put the strawberry plants and my Christmas cactus's, out there also. The temperature inside the Greenhouse got up to 90 degrees so I unzipped one part of the front door just to give it a way to have some of the heat to escape. The low's have been in the 40's outside the greenhouse, so the plants seem to do fine overnight.

Keep saying I can do this!

MY YOUNGEST SHOWED UP YESTERDAY AFTERNOON AND WE GOT A LOT DONE WITH HIS HELP. GOT THE NEW GRILL GAZEBO PUT TOGETHER, THE WOOD CUT FOR THE NEW VEGGIE BED, THE CEMENT BENCHES MOVED SO WE CAN PUT DOWN THE LANDSCAPE FABRIC IN THE LAST AREA, AND THE OLD FENCE SECTIONS MOVED TO COVER UP THE ALLEYWAY THAT THE KIDS WERE COMING THRU AND TAKING STUFF. NOW I CAN LOOK OUT THE BACK DOOR AND SEE MY MAGNOLIA TREE THAT SPRUNG UP BACK THERE---I HAD ALWAYS WANTED ONE SO I WAS THRILLED TO HAVE IT COME UP..
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE EASTER emoticon

DEB, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO START YOUR SEEDS OUT IN THAT GREENHOUSE NOW--ISN'T THAT WHY YOU HAVE ONE? I WISH I HAD ONE REALLY BAD NOW---LOL----I THINK WE HAVE A BUNCH OF SEEDS STARTED IN OUR COLD FRAME AT SCHOOL--I HAVEN'T BEEN IN THERE LATELY BUT KNOW WE HAVE SOMETHING IN THERE---PROBABLY MOST OF THE TOMATOES AND GREEN PEPPERS.
NANCY, YIKES TO THE ICE----HOPE THE RAIN HELPED AND DID NOT ADD TO THE PROBLEM OF MORE ICE.
EVELYN, HOPE YOU DON'T GET TOO MUCH MORE SNOW.
I HAVE TULIPS BLOOMING IN MY FRONT BED---THEY ARE THE NEW ONES I PLANTED AND THEY ARE SHORTER THAN OTHER ONES I HAVE---WHICH IS NICE AS THE WIND WON'T DO AS MUCH DAMAGE TO THEM. AND THE WINTER PANSIES ARE LOVELY AS WELL AS THE DAFFODILS.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE SATURDAY---GOING TO BE A LOT COOLER HERE TODAY---MORE NORMAL TEMPS--SO NOT COMPLAINING AND DEFINITELY NOT SNOW HERE.

Thanks Lecates, It hasn't been freezing for about a couple of weeks, so we're almost out of danger. I'll see what other lamps I can buy for the Greenhouse, since I'd like to start some other seeds. I'll see what the weather is going to be like tomorrow, I'm hoping to finish my weeding tomorrow for the gardener.

I'm keeping an eye on how big they are getting before I transplant them in another pot. Right now there roots are still not established enough, but the foliage is starting to get bigger.

Keep saying I can do this!

DEB, I THINK YOU WILL BE OKAY WITH IT---IF IT LOOKS TO BE BELOW FREEZING, RUN AN OUTDOOR POWER LINE IN THERE AND HOOK UP SOME LIGHTS WITH THE OLD FASHIONED BULBS THAT ACTUALLY PUT OUT HEAT---PLUS YOU HAVE YOUR NEW HEAT LAMPS---PUT THEM OUT THERE FOR THOSE OCCASIONS---AS LONG AS NOT BELOW FREEZING OR JUST ABOVE AND OVERCAST FOR MANY DAYS, IT SHOULD STORE ENOUGH HEAT IN THERE TO KEEP THEM OKAY---BUT IF REALLY WARM, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE TEMPS IN THERE TO MAKE SURE NOT TOO HOT. ALSO, WATERING THEM BEFORE EVENING IF GOING TO BE COLD KEEPS THEM FROM FREEZING, TOO--THAT'S WHAT THEY DO TO THE ORANGE TREES IN FLORIDA. IF YOUR SEEDLINGS ARE GETTING TOO BIG, YOU MIGHT WANT TO PUT THEM IN A LITTLE BIGGER POT FOR A WHILE---THEY REALLY SHOULDN'T STAY IN THOSE SEED POD THINGS VERY LONG ONCE THEY REALLY GET GOING UNLESS YOU ARE FEEDING THEM A MIXTURE WITH ADDITIONAL NUTRIENTS---EITHER A COMPOST TEA OR MIRACLE GROW. WE ARE HAVING REALLY GOOD LUCK WITH A COMPOST TEA IN OUR GREENHOUSES THIS YEAR.
NANCY, WHAT YUCKY WEATHER---GLAD YOU GOT IN A WALK WHEN IT WASNT' SO NASTY. I BET THAT ROOM WAS COLORFUL WITH ALL THOSE GOWNS IN THERE.
EVELYN, YUCK TO YOUR WEATHER, TOO.
LOOKS LIKE RAIN HERE FOR TODAY AND THEN COOLER TEMPS---HOPE WE GET THE RAISED BED BUILT THIS WEEKEND.
HAVE A GOOD GOOD FRIDAY!

The news said there is a bad cold front that is bringing snow and hail across the country. Many windows were smashed with the hail and the winds were very strong.

Hopefully Evelynn your in the clear of that storm and hope it will be moving on. Glad your Hubby made it home, the news said the snow was 17" high in Colorado. I remember driving in 2 1/2' of snow in Reno. We also had to go to work whether there was snow or not. Not always fun on the freeway or going up or down a hill. Had a few gripping moments on the wheel and very close encounters that I slipped by, by people spinning out in front of me.

Thanks Nancy for helping me out with the Greenhouse. I guess the best way to learn is go for it and hope the plant survives, but the seedlings are looking pretty good and strong.

Keep saying I can do this!

Nancy, I've been reading about all the greenhouses that have heat, lighting and a fan for getting the perfect environment, but I guess I was thinking I only bought this to bring the seedlings out of the house once I got them started. I was thinking if I waited for the temperature to be close to the 50's I could just put them in the greenhouse and watch the temperature, daily. The question is, what is the lowest temperature that will be safe to take them outside. There isn't a lot of information on the greenhouses that are covered with tarp type material and mainly used for a short period. They basically describe watching the temperature and having the right air flow.

Sounds like you have a crazy weather day, so keep warm.

Keep saying I can do this!

Its been years since I made myself a dress, so I'm with you, I only do minor repairs or hem clothes. Taking on a task of doing a wedding dress is way out of my league. That really takes experienced seamstress ability. Other people I've met talk about the hours of bead and sequence work. I imagine you have done that and more.

Evelynn - Seems the snow is accumulating pretty fast. Hope your husband can get home with no problem.

Nancy - Reno is almost a mile high, but as I remember, the snow in July never stayed. I'm probably going to wait on sending the seedlings out this week. I've never had a Greenhouse, so I need to read up on it before I kill my seedlings.

NANCY, THAT SOUNDS LOVELY---GLAD YOU HAD A BIT MORE ENERGY AND GOT THINGS DONE. GOOD TO GO THRU THAT CHEST AND GET RID OF STUFF YOU DON'T WANT. NOW ROOM TO STORE OTHER THINGS IN THERE.
DEB, WHAT HAPPENS WITH PLANTS IF IT SNOWS THAT LATE? YIKES, YOU MUST LIVE HIGH UP. YIPPEE FOR THE LIGHT FINALLY ARRIVING AND THE MAILMAN MAKING SURE YOUR DH COULD PICK IT UP. WILL YOU MOVE THE PLANTS OUTSIDE TO THE GREEN HOUSE NOW? i WOULD PUT THAT WARMING PAD OUT THERE IN CASE YOU HAVE A COLD SPELL---THAT WOULD HELP KEEP THE PLANTS WARM ALONG WITH LIGHTS IF YOU DO. I REALLY DO WANT TO GET ONE FOR MYSELF ONE OF THESE YEARS.
YOU ALL KEEP THE SNOW IN YOUR NECK OF THE WOODS----WE ARE FINALLY GOING TO FEEL LIKE SPRING HERE TODAY AND TOMORROW. WE WENT TO LOWE'S LAST NIGHT AND GOT THE WOOD FOR A NEW RAISED BED FOR VEGGIES---NOT MAKING THIS ONE VERY WIDE AND MAKING IT TALLER, TOO--EASIER FOR DH TO HANDLE. iF WE LIKE IT, WE WILL GET THE WOOD AND DO ANOTHER THE SAME SIZE. WANT TO GET IT BUILT THIS WEEKEND AND LINE IT AND THEN GET THE DIRT FOR IT.
HAVE A GOOD DAY----HOPEFULLY THE SNOW WILL MELT QUICKLY FOR THOSE GETTING SOME.

Got the other UV light in the mail. My husband said the mailman waited till he picked up the package. Its nice to see the mailman concerned and thoughtful. Put it together when I got home. Went outside to do a little weeding, before the rain. I'm trying to clear out some weeds before the Landscaper takes over in April. He dropped the price from $900 to $500 which includes removing a tree stump, if I cleaned against the retaining wall and the chickens. I see why, because there was a lot of grass that went crazy around the chickens, but it was easy to pull. The ground was so wet, that when I used my claw tool it pulled easily out. It shouldn't take long, to clean up.

I understand about keeping things, I still have my Aunt's knitted shawls, which are very beautiful. I've seen a few women use them, but its just not me. I have a Hope Chest, which is a Cedar Chest with material for sewing, and things from the past; The moth balls are included. I keep saying I'll sit down to sew some dresses or sew the kids a dress, so I'm now waiting for extra time. Where's the time?

Keep saying I can do this!

Like in Reno, Nevada, it can snow in July, which I have seen it do. But the snow should stay less and less as the weather gets more into spring. I took both warming pads off and mostly everything has their second leaf starting. The only thing that hasn't come up which we replanted was the Bell Peppers and the Cilantro. I'm still waiting for UPS to deliver my UV lamp from Fleet Farm, which is coming from Wisconsin. Looked at the tracking and it is here in Tualatin, OR. So I hope I get it today.

I'm still hacking at night, which my husband and I take turns hacking. So we kept each other awake. I think he needs to go back to the doctor to get some antibiotics. I'm at the end of the trail with my sickness, but it's annoying. Since we went to Urgent Care, we got the same doctor, but I don't think the doctor realized that my husband was being exposed by his wife with Bronchitis. Otherwise he would have given my husband the antibiotics in the first place.

Sounds like a beautiful Quilt, someday I'd like to try to make one.

COLD COLD COLD HERE AGAIN AND WE ARE EXPECTING SNOW OVERNIGHT TONIGHT AND AGAIN ON THURSDAY,, TOTAL ABOUT 6 TO 8 INCHES, BUT IT SHOULD NOT HANG AROUND TOO LONG, (IF WE GET IT)

THE QUILT IS REVERSIBLE, PEACHY ON ONE SIDE AND THE OTHER SIDE IS WHITE WITH PEACH FLOWERS AND NATURALLY GREEN LEAVES,, I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED FLOWERED ONES COMPARED TO PLAIN COLORED ONES,, FIRST TIME FOR WHITS THOUGH, SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I WILL EITHER TAKE IT OFF AT NIGHT OR FOLD IT DOWN.

WILSON, GLAD TO SEE YOU,, I WONDERED WHERE YOU WERE

DEB, I WILL SAY LIKE YOU AND LECATES, I DON'T THINK THE SEEDLINGS NEED THE HEAT PAD ANYMORE. ARE YOU FEELING UP TO PAR?

EVELYN, ALTHOUGH WE DID NOT WANT YOU TO SHARE THE SNOW, YOU CAN SHARE THE NICE WEATHER emoticon AND I REALLY THINK YOU SENT THE SNOW MY WAY

GOING TO TAKE KIRBY OUT, I HAVE A LOAD OF LAUNDRY IN ALREADY SO GUESS I WILL DO A BIT MORE TODAY THAN I DID YESTERDAY,,YESTERDAY ALL I DID WAS THROW THE COVERS UP OVER THE BED. I HAVE TO STRIP THE BED TO BE ABLE TO PUT THE MATTRESS COVER ON SO THAT WILL BE ANOTHER LOAD OF LAUNDRY,, PLUS WHATEVER IS LEFT IN THE BASKET,, ENOUGH OF THIS DOING NOTHING.. THEN MAY TOMORROW I WILL GET TO THE FLOORS, BUT WITH MORE WET WEATHER ON THE WAY I DON'T KNOW,, WASH THE DOGGIE PAWS AND WATCH MORE APPEAR.,, BUT I REALLY DON'T HAVE A CHOICE

HABE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

DEB, GOOD ADVICE TO BOTH OF THEM. GLAD YOU ARE FEELING BETTER---WHICH PLANTS HAVE THE LONG SHOOTS? SOUNDS LIKE THEY DON'T NEED THE HEATING PAD ANYMORE. MAKE SURE YOU ARE TURNING THEM EACH DAY AS THEY DO SEARCH OUT THE SUN SOURCE. YOU MUST BE EXCITED TO GET THEM OUT THERE. ARE YOU GOING TO START MORE SEEDS OUT THERE? I THINK WE WILL BE BUILDING OUR NEW BEDS THIS WEEKEND---PLAN TO TELL DH TO GET THE STUFF AND WE CAN WORK ON IT WHEN I AM OFF ON FRIDAY AS I AM SURE HE WILL NEED SOMEONE TO BRACE THEM WHEN HE PUTS THEM TOGETHER.
NANCY, GLAD YOU FOUND A QUILT YOU LIKE FOR THE NEW BED--WHAT COLORS? GLAD YOUR EYE WAS OKAY.
EVELYN, JEALOUS OF YOUR TEMPS BUT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE UP THERE BY THURSDAY HERE. STILL NEED MY WINTER COAT THIS MORNING.
GREAT POOL WORKOUT AND LOTS OF STEPS YESTERDAY. WE WILL BE MOVING SOME PLANTS OUTSIDE NEXT WEEK AT THE GREENHOUSES----HAVE TO BECAUSE THE VINCA ARE COMING ON THURSDAY AND WE CAN'T PLANT THEM UNTIL WE HAVE ROOM---THEY ARE BIG SELLERS FOR US.
HAVE A GOOD TUESDAY!

I'd hunt down the Internet Service to give you some help. I imagine you looked in the Control Panel to see if you had any internet hookup. Sometimes I've had the password to be the Web Key and not the password that's written on the router. So I try both and see what happens.

MY WORRY WART (MY DAUGHTER) INSISTED THAT I GO SEE THE OPTOMETRIST THIS MORNING CAUSE FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND SATURDAY THERE WAS BLOOD IN MY RIGHT EYE,, SO I WENT AND THERE IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, I HAD NO SYMPTOMS BUT SHE HAD SEEN IT. THESE THINGS HAPPEN OFTEN WITH DIABETICS, JUST ABOUT ATT GONE THIS MORNING, THEN WE WENT SHOPPING. I BOUGHT A WATERPROOF MATTRESS PROTECTOR AND A QUILT HIT MY EYE, WELL IT IS NOW IN THE HOUSE. MY DAUGHTER HAS 2 SETS OF QUEEN SHEETS SO I WON'T HAVE TO BUY THEM.

NEEDLESS TO SAY I DID NOT DO MUCH TODAY, MY DAUGHTER CALLED AT 9.00 AND WE LEFT AT 10.15 SO ALL I DID WAS WALK KIRBY AND NOW AFTER BEING OUT I DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING ANYTHING,, I MAY GET A LOAD OF LAUNDRY ON THE GO BUT NOT TOO SURE ABOUT THAT EITHER, MAYBE I WILL START THE DISHWASHER,, BOY AM I ENERGETIC OR WHAT??

Lecates - I'm worried about the long stalks that these seedlings have. I read that it is not good to have the stalks that long. Maybe its time to remove the heating pad and start getting them ready for going into the Greenhouse; I'll try one tray at a time. I believe we're out of the danger of frost, so maybe this weekend I'll put the planter out.

Sunday I just didn't have the energy to do much housework. I'm still recovering from being sick, so I spent 1/2 of the day in bed.

Today I'm better and my throat doesn't feel soar. I'm taking Sudafed, so hopefully Saturday I'll be almost back to normal.

Have a good day Girls!

Keep saying I can do this!

NANCY, DID N'T YOU DO A BIT MORE WALKING THAT DAY? THAT HELPED COUNTERACT THE FOOD, PLUS NOT AS MANY CARBS AS YOU THOUGHT--IT REALLY IS CARBS MORE THAN SUGAR THAT YOU HAVE TO WATCH.
EVELYN, OLDER HOUSES DO TEND TO HAVE SMALL BATHROOMS--AND NOT MANY CLOSETS EITHER.
DEB, GLAD YOU ANCHORED IT DOWN. HOW ARE THE PLANTS DOING?
DIDN'T DO MUCH YESTERDAY BUT NOW BACK TO WORK. HAVE A GOOD MONDAY!

Nancy, I did anchor the Greenhouse, since we have been getting very strong winds lately.

Spending today inside, cleaning the Love Bird's cage, and putting away the knick knacks that I put in a bin during the holidays.

AT THE SUGAR SHACK IT IS EVERYTHING I SHOULD NOT EAT, BUT LIKE YOU SAID HEAVENLY.. THEY START OFF WITH PEA SOUP, THEN THERE ARE BUNS WITH CRETONS, (DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE IN ENGLISH) OMELETTE, HAM.. CUT UP HOT DOGS ,( ALL COOKED IN MAPLE SYRUP) AND CUT UP POTATOES THAT ARE FRIED AND SYRUP ADDED.. ALL KINDS OF HOME MADE PICKLES, THEN TOP IT OFF WITH SUGAR PIE,, THOUGHT FOR SURE MY SUGAR WOULD BE HIGH THIS MORNING BUT IT IS NOT SO I WAS NOT TO NAUGHTY.

MOTHER NATURE IS S CREWED UP HERE TOO., WE ARE ONLY AT 17 DEGREES RIGHT NOW AND ALTHOUGH IT IS SUNNY WE ARE TO HIT 32,, BUT AT LEAST THERE IS NO SNOW IN THE FORECAST TODAY,, BUT MORE TO COME TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK

GOING OUT WITH KIRBY AND THEN GROCERY SHOPPING WITH MY DAUGHTER, FOR THE PAST 2 WEEKS I HAVE JUST NEEDED THE BASICS BUT THIS WEEK I NEED MORE,, I HAD A LOT OF MEALS IN THE FREEZER BUT EVEN THEY ARE GOING DOWN, FRUITS AND VEGGIES ARE EMPTY TOO

HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

NANCY, IT IS A STEP IN----WITH A SMALL LIP---BECAUSE OF THE WINDOW AT THE END, THE SHOWER ROD HAS TO GO HIGHER UP THAN IT WOULD NORMALLY BE PUT AT---THUS THE NEED OF THE EXTRA LONG SHOWER CURTAIN---ACTUALLY, I AM LIKING THE CLEAR CURTAIN AS I CAN STILL ADMIRE MY NEW SHOWER WALLS AND NOT MAKE THE ROOM FEEL SMALLER THAN IT IS. WHAT DO THEY SERVE AT THE SUGAR SHACK? SOUNDS HEAVENLY---LOL
EVELYN, MY BATHROOM IS SMALL---AND I HATE THOSE GLASS DOORS---TOO CONFINING AND CLAUSTROPHOBIC, TOO, IN SUCH SPACE AS i HAVE.
DEB, CONGRATS ON GETTING THE GREENHOUSE UP---YOU CAN PUT QUITE A LOT IN A GREENHOUSE, JUST SHIFT PLANTS FROM THE BOTTOM SHELVES UP TO THE HIGHER SHELVES NOW AND THEN---YOU SHOULD SEE HOW MANY WE FIT IN OUR GREENHOUSES UNTIL IT GETS NICE ENOUGH TO PUT THE PERENNIALS OUTSIDE---WHICH WE HOPE TO DO IN ANOTHER WEEK. LAST YEAR IT WAS 76000, THIS YEAR WE ARE DOING 80000---OF COURSE, WE HAVE VERY LARGE GREENHOUSES AND HEAT SOURCES. THE MORE MODERN ONE IS PLASTIC AND HAS ROLL UP SIDES THAT ARE SET ON A TEMPERATURE GAUGE---IF IT GETS TOO WARM, THE WALLS GO UP, IF IT STARTS TO COOL, THE SIDES GO DOWN---SOUNDS FUNNY WHEN YOU ARE IN THERE AND THE SIDES START TO MOVE ON THEIR OWN.
I REALLY ENJOYED MY SHOWER THIS MORNING---MORE WATER PRESSURE NOW AND LOVE THE SAFETY BAR WHEN I WENT TO WASH MY FEET---SOMETHING STURDY TO HANG ON TO WHILE ON ONE LEG. DH WENT TO TAKE HIS SHOWER LAST NIGHT AND NO WATER---THE TECH FORGOT TO TURN IT BACK ON---OOPS--THAT HAS BEEN THE ONLY ISSUE WE HAVE HAD SO FAR. MICHAEL CAME BY LAST NIGHT AND REALLY LIKED IT---HE HELPED ME WITH THE COLOR CHOICES AND THE PEEL AND STICK TILE CHOICE FOR AROUND THE SINK---THAT STUFF IS SO COOL---REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE GLASS TILE.
MOTHER NATURE IS ALL CONFUSED----FIRST DAY OF SPRING AND WE HAVE SNOW IN OUR FORECAST---AND THE SKY DEFINITELY LOOKS LIKE A SNOW SKY---AND TURNED COLD, TOO.
HOPE EVERYONE HAS A NICE PALM SUNDAY.

DEB.. GLAD YOU GOT THE GREENHOUSE UP AND INSTALLED,, DID YOU ANCHOR IT?
I HAD A YOUNG BOY CUT THE GRASS AND I DID THE TRIMMING WHEN I HAD THE HOUSE,, TO HAVE IT DONE BY PROFESSIONALS WOULD HAVE COST AN ARM AND A LEG,, HOWEVER I DID HAVE A COMPANY COME TO DO ALL TREATMENTS ON THE LAWN AND THE SPRAYING FOR WHITE WORMS AND ANY OTHER BUGS

WE HAD A NICE DAY BUT BOY THE WIND WAS WICKED AND IT WAS COLD,, SUPPOSED TO BE THE SAME TOMORROW..

WENT SHOPPING WITH MY GRAND DAUGHTER AND THEN WE ALL WENT TO THE SUGAR SHACK FOR DINNER,, BET MY SUGAR WILL BE HIGH IN THE MORNING BUT AT LEAST I WILL KNOW WHY,, WE HAD NOT GONE IN 4 YEARS AND I GUESS IT WILL BE ANOTHER 4 BEFORE WE GO AGAIN

GOOD NIGHT ALL AND SLEEP TIGHT emoticon

What a gorgeous day it was! Cleaned up a few weeds, moved some wood from the side of the garage to the wood shed, pulled out a dead pine tree, cleaned up the patio and my Son-in-law and daughter put up my Greenhouse. It was partly cloudy, but the Sun was out most of the day. The temp was about 65 degrees. The Greenhouse is a good size and I don't want to over crowd the inside, but I still may get 2 more shelves. Back to rain tomorrow and for most of the week.

Decided to get a lawn service, so I can get other projects done around the house. Seems every year I've talked about going fishing, or the zoo, but never have the time. So this time I'm going to try to enjoy myself a little more this year. The last 2 years have been putting up a new fence, putting in the sprinkler system or something, so this year the only thing I need to finish is the brick planters and bordering for the lawn.

Keep saying I can do this!

LECATES wHY DIDN'T YOU GET SHOWER DOORS? I GOT ONE CALL RAIN DROP SO THEY ARE NOT SEE THROUGH. hOPE THE WATER DON'T RUN ALL OVER THE FLOOR. DO YOU GOT A EDGE TO KEEP THE WATER IN. BY SHOWER WALLS GO UP TO THE CEIL TOO.

DEB: ABOUT THOSE WALK IN TUBS YOU KOW YOU GOING HAVE TO IN IT WHILE THE TUB IS FILLING UP AND HAVE TO WAIT UNTILL IT EMPTY TO GET OUT. mIGHT GET A LITTLE CHILLY WAITING TO GET OUT. I GUESS YOU CAN WRAP A TOWEL AROUNG YOUR SELF. aNOTHER IDEA IS TO GET A JET TUB AND THEN GET ON OF THOSE CHAIR LIFT THAT WILL LOWER YOU DH IN THE WATER AND WHEN HE DONE JUST COME BACK UP AGAIN THEN IF YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE YOU JUST TAKE THE CHAIR LIFT OUT AND YOU HAVE A TUB AGAIN.
SNOW IS GONE AND A LITTLE WARM UP FOR A FEW DAYS.

TIME SURE FLIES LECATES,, SHE WILL BE 7 ALREADY?
OK NOW ANSWER THIS, WHAT KIND OF SHOWER DID YOU HAVE INSTALLED THAT THE WALLS GO RIGHT UP TO THE CEILING AND YOU NEED A LONG SHOWER CURTAIN?? IS IT A STEP IN SHOWER WITH THE OPEN FRONT?

. I HAVE STARTED TAKING A PROBIOTIC TO TRY TO HELP WITH MY BOWELS,, ONE DAY VERY VERY LOSE, THEN 2 DAYS I DON'T GO THEN BACK TO FORCING AND LOOSE.. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THIS,, DR. SAID IT COULD BE ONE THING AND TO TRY BY CUTTING ONE OF MY PILLS IN HALF, NOT TO TAKE IT AT ALL IF I KNOW I AM GOING OUT, PHARMACIST SAYS NO.. IT HAS JUST TAKES EVERYTHING OUT OF ME. I THOUGHT AT ONE POINT THAT MAYBE IT WAS THE FRUIT I WAS EATING.

WE ARE BACK TO BEING COLD HERE AND I AM ABOUT TO HEAR KIRBY JUMP OFF THE BED MEANING HE IS READY TO GO OUT,, HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

DEB, POCKET DOORS ARE BECOMING REALLY POPULAR AGAIN---THAT AND PUTTING UP BARN DOORS INSIDE THAT SLIDE OPEN.
NANCY, HOPE YOU GET SOME SPUNK TODAY.
THE SHOWER CONVERSION IS COMPLETE---IT LOOKS SO NICE---WILL TRY TO POST SOME TIME THIS WEEKEND---CAN'T USE IT UNTIL AFTER 5 TONIGHT---CAN'T EVEN PUT UP THE SHOWER CURTAIN UNTIL THEN---HAVE TO GIVE THE SEALER TIME TO SET UP---THE SMELL IS STILL PRETTY STRONG FROM THE SILICON SEALER--HAVE THE BATHROOM WINDOW CRACKED OPEN AND A DEORDERIZER IN THERE AND SPRAYING EVERY TIME I GO IN THERE----JUST A TAD BIT BETTER---HOPING AFTER DH TAKES THE FIRST SHOWER THAT HELPS WITH THE SMELL. SINCE I CAN'T DO ANYTHING IN THERE I PLAN ON GOING SHOPPING TODAY---LOOKING AT PAINT COLORS MOSTLY--THE GUY GAVE ME A PIECE OF THE STUFF SO I CAN TAKE THAT WITH ME WHEN I LOOK.

SHE DID PICK OUT A PEEP PILLOW THAT WE BOUGHT HER---SHE DOES LOVE THOSE KIND OF THINGS---HARD TO BELIEVE SHE WILL BE 7 NEXT MONTH.

Nancy, that is what a pocket door is, it slides between the walls. Old style, but it gives space to a small bathroom.

Deb, they can tell you if they can get it in---my bathroom is small and I am betting he had a hard time getting in the 96 inch high wall today--he was saying it was going to be a task---dh said he had gotten it in and it really looked nice---can't wait to get home to see how it looks.
NANCY, DO YOU HAVE DARK WOODEN FLOORS? THAT SHOWS PRINTS A LOT, BUT I DO NOTICE THEM ON MY NEW KITCHEN FLOOR, TOO. I DEFINITELY NEED TO WASH IT THIS WEEKEND

Lecates, I'll have to see when the next Home Show is in Portland. I wondered about those tubs for the home sale value. I could see that that isn't a plus for most normal families. I've spotted some tub and shower combinations at Lowes, but since the bathroom is small, they have to bring in 2 pieces, because of also the pocket door. I guess that's why I'm wondering about Bath Fitters.

Happy Friday to Everyone! Hope you can get outside a bit.

USUALLY THE UPGRADES ON THE METERS ARE GOOD, THIS IS A DOWNGRADE,, REALLY ANYONE WITH A CHANCE TO UPGRADE TO THE VERIO-FLEX SHOULD DECLINE,, I TOLD MY SISTER THAT LAST EVENING AND SHE ASKED WHY SO I TOLD HER, SHE REPLIED I WILL STICK WITH THE VERIO IQ,

WE HAD A DUSTING OF SNOW OVERNIGHT BUT WITH THE BRIGHT SUN WE HAVE IT WILL BE GONE SOON. GOING OUT WITH KIRBY THEN HAVE TO REMOVE DOGGIE PAWS AGAIN FROM THE LIVING ROOM FLOOR, I WON'T GO INTO DOING THE KITCHEN AND DINING AREA AS IT IS STILL WET OUT THERE, BUT THE LIVING ROOM ONE REALLY SHOWS, WATCH THEY WILL ALL BE DONE

HAVE A GREAT DAY ALL AND TAKE CARE emoticon

EVELYN HAD DENTAL WORK DONE A FEW WEEKS AGO---IT IS A BRIDGE FOR HER MOUTH.
I KNOW THOSE TUBS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD FOR HANDICAP---BUT GO TAKE A GOOD LUCK AT ONE---IT IS NOT AS EASY TO GET IN FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS TROUBLE BENDING HIS KNEE----NOT A WHOLE LOT OF LEG ROOM IN THE ONES I HAVE SEEN---AND SEEMS TO BE THE STEP INTO IT IS HIGHER THAN A SHOWER. ALSO, HEARD THAT THAT KIND OF TUB HURTS THE RESALE VALUE OF YOUR HOUSE UNLESS YOU LIVE IN A RETIREMENT COMMUNITY---THEN IT IS OKAY, BUT IN GENERAL, PEOPLE SEE THAT AS A DETRIMENT AND WANT IT REPLACED. MY ADVICE IS TO GO TO YOUR NEXT HOME SHOW AND SEE IF THERE IS COMPETITION FOR BATH FITTERS. THEY ARE A GOOD COMPANY---NOT KNOCKING THAT---BUT EXPENSIVE----NO IDEA WHAT THOSE TUBS COST BUT THINKING MORE THAN A SHOWER CONVERSION WOULD BE. IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR DH REALLY WANTS THE CONVENIENCE OF THAT TUB THAT WOULD FEEL GOOD LIKE A HOT TUB DOES---BUT HE DOES NEED TO SEE HOW NARROW THAT DOOR OPENING IS. WE HAVE THE 2 COMPANIES SET UP IN OUR MALL WITH DISPLAYS THAT YOU CAN CHECK OUT, TOO---DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING LIKE THAT AT ONE NEAR YOU.
NANCY, ALWAYS WANTING TO CHANGE UP YOUR METERS---WHAT A PAIN---GLAD YOU DON'T HAVE TO SEND IT BACK.
NO FOG DELAY TODAY---BUT IT IS A CASUAL DAY---GOT TO GET READY.

My mistake! Monday and Tuesday, they forecast summer weather in the 60's, and it will freeze on Tuesday night. Wednesday is the worse day to go to work, which happens to us in Portland, OR, where it will snow over the ice and it will be a nice skating rink for everyone to have fun on.

Evelynn's right! The forecast predicts snow for tomorrow also, with low's of 17 degrees, and the high of 28 degrees. But, it will be Sunny on Saturday and Sunday, but the snow might not melt with a temperature of 35 degrees. The next two days, wont be much help and she'll get more snow on Wednesday. Not looking too good, to warm Evelynn up!
