    Sue I know you have not been happy with things at work and you don’t need to go if you don’t want to. The old saying is: “Smile things could get worse so I smiled and sure enough they got worse” seems to apply in a lot of work places these days. A baby shower isn’t in your job description so they can’t do a thing if you don’t go. Unless her first child is much older I can see no reason for a baby shower for her either.
    It has been a really crappy day here, I stayed inside all day because the weather was not nice enough to make me want to do anything outside. So I did some chores in the house that have been neglected all summer. It was even too cool and damp in the greenhouse to work and I sure was not about to turn heat on today.
    I am listening to the news tonight and seeing that there were shots in Ottawa today. I guess no place is really safe any longer. Prayers for the soldier that was killed and the family who has to deal with his death.

    We didn’t have any thunder or lightning but it has dripped and drizzled all day long. The rain gauge has less than 1/2″ in it but it took almost 24 hours to get that much. But now the wind is wicked and chilly, needless to say I didn’t get anything done outside today.

    I am not sure but it won’t be much, my tummy has been acting funny today. Maybe a poached egg on toast.

    It’s about time someone saw what a great worker you are, we all knew it long ago but for some reason some businesses won’t or can’t see that. Congratulations Kathy, you deserve it.

    MD I may be stupid but I am going to ask anyway..what are citronella ants? I have an infulx of flies coming inside for the winter, how they get in is a mystery but it happens every year at this time. They hang on the windows of the den and kitchen so I keep the vacuum handy and suck them into the bags.

    Good Morning Sue and all..I was here earlier and there was a message that the service was down. It is still there but I guess they forgot to take it off because it is still there but I managed to get here. It is cloudy today and I haven’t heard what is in store for us. Yesterday I made the mistake of deciding to clean out my closet because it was supposed to rain..it didn’t and I missed out on a beautiful day to work outside so I guess I will never learn to not depend on the weather dudes. It did rain a little after dark! I guess because Charlie is still laid up I should put something healthy on the table to go with our drinks but I can’t think of anything healthier than peanut butter-chocolate chip cookies! :) ) Have a wonderful day everyone.

    I have never had it and we used to grow a lot of butternut squash. Now that I will have to buy one I will try it! :)

    I didn’t know there was a limit Leroy. But try posting part of it then the rest of it as a “Part One” and Part Two”

    I decided I was hungry for Macaroni Salad so I am having that and who knows what else? I still have a couple of Baked Apples from last night so probably that will be dessert. They really hit the spot last night!

    Good Morning Charlene and all…Happy Birthday to Larry! I got busy changing the bed and cleaning up the kitchen and just managed to get here so I am glad you got the sun room open…I planned to work outside today but it is looking like we might get rain if so it will be greenhouse time again. I brought some peanut butter/chocolate chip cookies to have with our coffee this morning so I hope everyone has time to sit awhile and visit before they start their day.

    Charlie I am sorry you are sick but your sense of humor is still going strong. I hope you have sick time coming from work, it would be terrible to miss that much work without it. How about some virtual chicken soup to make you feel better?

    I have grown them from seed but they usually revert to the parent plant, the White Autumn Clematis. They are not easy to start and disappointing unless you want the white ones.

    I wish I could help with that but I had beautiful cannas for years, one year not one came back up. And it wasn’t a particularly cold winter that year either although it may have been a very wet one. I have not replaced them again.

    Welcome home Stella, it sounds like you had a busy trip! I forget how busy a family with young ones can be. Lately the best part of any trip is getting home and back to what passes as normal for me. My kids tell me I am becoming and old F**t! They are probably right about that but it is what it is. I know what the dogs are like when I get home, they make me feel so guilty for leaving them. The cat couldn’t care less as long as he has food in his dish.
