    Good Morning Wendy and all who come in later..I didn’t want to get up this morning. I forgot how hard shopping was, we went to several stores, one of the gals who shopped with us insisted we could get something better/cheaper in other stores so we trudged all over the place instead of just getting what was in front of us. And of course in the process we didn’t get everything we needed:( Back to the parsonage to put the bed together, set up the kitchen, cleaned both bathrooms, got them stocked and ready. My back finally gave out and I came home. We still have a lot to do today but first I have some things to do here to get ready for our party on Sunday afternoon. It is starting out cloudy here but the sun should appear sometime today. I guess if I am going to get everything done here this morning I need to get off of here and on my feet. I hope everyone has a great day, and you all get the weather you want today.

    I quilted for years but so much arthritis in my hands now I can’t hold a needle any more. I still have my quilt rack but probably should sell that since I can’t use it any more. I did strictly hand quilting but pieced them on the sewing machine.

    The very smell of canned cat food gags me. I feed mine dry food with hair ball preventer. If I give him anything else he throws up. My vet said it really didn’t matter …some cats are more finicky than others. Since he is a feral cat that was rescued, neutered and adopted out he seems to just be happy to have food…better than what he had when he was wild.

    I just bought a new dust buster and it isn’t worth a darn. Unlike the old ones, this one has such a tiny bag that I have to empty it constantly. I had a rechargable stick vac once but that has died too. So I have to get the big vac out every time I need to do a cleanup. Maybe I will look into the bissell next.

    If I can butt in here…I have two dish remotes and neither one of them has a cc button under the sat button.

    Del, DD has just bought a new Hyundai and she loves it. Very economical to run too. I drive it on days I deliver Meals on Wheels and love the screen that shows the entire area when it is in reverse! I deliver in some pretty remote and hard to back out of places. She sure doesn’t pay much for gas these days either!

    Good Morning Charlene and all…I got busy and just made it here. I have a LOT to do today and hopefully my energy will last until it is finished. It is a little overcast right now so I hope that doesn’t mean we are in for rain. Nothing exciting going on here these days but that is a good thing, hope the next shoe won’t drop! After having to put the pool party/picnic off for two weeks in a row it is FINALLY happening Sunday come rain or high water. So I have a lot of things to get done before then.

    Good evening all…I have been busy all day but can’t tell you what got finished except for running the vacuum through and watering everything. How quickly things dry out with the sun shining! Once again I am invited to have dinner with DD last night was corned beef and cabbage, tonite is ziti with sauce and cheese. I made a salad to go with that. DGD is working and she won’t be home again for dinner so we eat together on her porch, the weather is so nice it is a shame to waste it inside. I am beginning to let some things go to seed so I can start collecting seeds for next year. Mostly Texas Star Hibiscus& malabar spinach. Ilove the looks of that one it winds itself around the porch railings. It was a mistake..found in a package of lisianthus seeds I ordered.
    I love the program Who do you think you are too.

    Good late morning all..I had a problem logging in this morning but I finally made it. It is so foggy I can’t see 5′ from the windows but behind the fog the sun is trying to shine. The heat is supposed to return today but the last few days have been so pleasant it was a relief. Plenty of things need attention both inside and outside today so I will be busy no matter what I do. Have a wonderful day everyone!

    I had the opposite problems with Direct TV so I went to Dish. I have never had to ask them to come back, a couple of times I hit something on the remote and couldn’t get it back so I called them and they talked me through that. Direct TV kept sending the same person, when I specifically asked for a manager they sent HIM! He claimed he put new wires on the dish and I was standing in the window watching him, he never took the ladder off of his truck! I am sure if you call them Gayle they will make it right by you, at least they have always done me well.

    I agree that it is ugly and like Janet I see a place for a LOT of snakes to hide. I much prefer to see a few weeds in the flowers to that but to each his own I guess, I am sure glad he doesn’t live near me.

    It is true, there are hydrangeas that only bloom on new wood and some that only bloom on new wood. If you know your variety you can google pruning……hydrangeas and that will tell you when they need to be pruned. I have so many it is hard to remember which ones I need to prune when so I end up having to check them in the fall and again in the spring.
    Some of mine were late blooming this year but they finally did all bloom…when they were supposed to.

    I have used that in the house but do you realize how expensive cinnamon is? It would take a LOT to do all of those pots! But thanks for thinking of me. I will just have to keep using my q-tips and alcohol. As soon as I can I plan to cut them all back and re-pot them before they go into the greenhouse, I am sure the ants are in the soil.
