    I have a picture of a volunteer Rhododendron that showed up and grew for 4 years then promptly died.  I remember it fondly.

    Good Morning Carol & Marilyn,  

    It is overcast again with a temp of 27* out there.  We have a strong east wind so they say it may break up the clouds and we will get some sun later.  The forecast doesn’t show any sun for the next week.  Yesterday the man came and serviced my machines and right after lunch we went to town.  It was  awful!  I wished so many times I had stayed at home.  Lots of traffic and nobody knew where they were going so Tim got a bad case of road rage.  We went a few places and sat at every light where I heard lots of new words none I can repeat.  It seemed like we were there hours and hours but made it home before 3.  I was just wore out and swore I would never do it again.  Tim wants to take a vacation in the spring and we will drive to OK to see his sister.  I said one of us wouldn’t live through it.  I’d be loading a gun wondering if I’ll shoot him or shoot me.Well, enough on that subject.  

    I got some soil yesterday so I may start some seeds today, it is close to the Feb.1st  start date.  Other than that just some cleaning if the mood strikes me.  I’m glad I am not the only one with motivation slump.  Well, I’m going to get some more coffee and get my day moving.  I’ve been up a long time since I woke at 5;15 with a headache and couldn’t go back to sleep.  I still have not done anything so You all have a good day.  Be back later.  Lair

    Hey Tina, Funny you should mention that.  Every morning I have to clean up under my Jade plant.  Looks like I will never have to prune it again.

    I forgot to mention that I grow them for potatoes not for the vine.

    I’ve never seen it done that way with potatoes only Avocados. I just let mine sit on the counter and they will sprout but not until the days get longer.  Mine in the GH are now just showing signs of new growth.  They have been in pots since last October.  The ones in pots are the small ones that I dig in the fall.  Too small to eat once they are peeled.  I stick them in a pot buried half way up the potato.  I water them every other week until they grow.   I never have had one rot.  Good luck with yours.  Lair

    Good Morning, it is 29* and overcast this morning again.  We are the cold side of the state this week.  I hour east they will have in the upper 40′s but we will have a high of 34* today.  busy around the house yesterday but nothing worth mentioning.  Today the man is coming to check out my oxygen machines.  After he leaves Tim is taking me to town to pick up a few things.  It will be good to get out.  guess I will have to go back and read and look at pictures before I comment.  I’ll be back later.  You all have a great day.  Lair

    Gayle is right.  It is a Dracaena deremensis ( Janet Craig).  I have several  around my house.  They do bloom but only about every 3 years.  I have one right now that is trying to bloom.  By that I mean the new shoots are all curled up and in knots, out of that usually comes a bloom stalk.  Lair

    Good Morning everyone,  It is snowing and 20* this morning.  They say it will get up to 40 this afternoon.  Yesterday was a nice day.  I couldn’t get on the board because I kept getting a message it didn’t exist.  I gave up on this board and went to my smart TV and watched 4 movies.  By the time they were over  it was sunny and 30*.  I got the recycling done and went back to TV for the night.  I really don’t understand but after doing nothing yesterday I didn’t wake up until 8:30 this morning.  Overslept 2 or more hours.  I was going to do laundry yesterday but didn’t.  This morning I am correcting that because my sheets are already in the washer.  Tim said he would take me to town this afternoon if the roads clear off.  I don’t know how to tell him if he does he will have to spot me the money for anything I will buy.  The furnace repair wiped out my extra funds and it will take a while to build that back up.  Will see what happens.  

    Snow, is it your husband  that keeps freezing up?  I didn’t know you could take husbands back for repairs.  I reread that, it is his computer.  lol  

    Carol, 2 trips to the booth?  Sounds like you had more sales, I hope so. How was the auction, gems or junk?

    Marilyn, I can just picture you and hubby going door to door all bundled up checking on neighbors.  It is so nice of you to do that.  I did do that at one time but now I find I’m the one they are checking on.  I just think a couple are doing that so they get their names in the paper for finding me dead.  Once I answer the door they can’t get away fast enough.  

    Cookie, chicken soup sounds good.  I may make some of that with the chicken in the freezer.  I won’t be good because the chicken is the boneless and skinless in a bag.  I had no idea bones and skin had so much flavor until I bought this bag on sale.  I looked the bag over to make sure there wasn’t a flavor bouch on it.  

    Oh well, I could go on but I need to throw sheets in the dryer.  You all have a good day.  Lair

    Good Morning,  It is sunny and 29* this morning.  I don’t trust what the forecast says because they say overcast and fog turning to snow later.  If this is overcast I hope it doesn’t get sunny.  No plans for today except to recover from yesterday.  My plan of doing something in every room didn’t turn out so good.  I didn’t get anything done on my list but I now have a mess in every room.  I am now starting to see how my grandmother got her house to be such a mess continually.  She just did something in every room and moved on.  What was I thinking?  If you do one thing it makes every other thing look worst.  I guess I will have to regroup and go back to doing one room at a time and then move on.  I think I will go down to the GH and see what’s growing.  Well, everyone have a good day and enjoy!.  Lair

    I looked around my yard also but just took one picture of all the things growing. Well, not growing, it is a curly willow.

    Good Morning Carol & Marilyn,  It is sunny and 34* this morning.  There is still some snow on my car but that won’t last long with this sun.  I was up early this morning.  About 6:20 the TV in my room came on all by itself.  Kind of freaked me out.  The remote was not even close to me and the cats were all sleeping so it must have been our housemate.  She has never done anything like this before but there is a first time for everything.  I have never seen her around except for dusk in the evening so this is new too.  Maybe her life is as boring as mine is.  I would tell you what I did yesterday but it would put all of us to sleep.  I get on this board and should get inspired by you all but it hasn’t been working.  I should be cleaning and taking care of things but instead I am naming the dust bunnies.  I think today I will go around and do just one thing in every room, maybe that will inspire me.  OH!  excitement, my kitty just brought me a mouse.  Of course he let it go on the desk and I had to catch it but he had it pretty well wore out.   That gets the heart beating.   So there is the first thing I can do is reorganize my desk since I have almost everything upside down.  Well, you all have a good day.  Lair
