    Wanda I think of you every time I see the 6 new Confederate Roses I started this year from cuttings on mine…was going to share them with you! I am so glad you are able to do this now while you are young enough to enjoy traveling. Keep in touch we need to hear what it is like there when it is so miserable up here.

    I will try to answer all of your questions…The first few years we lived here we decorated a LOT outside. But the pine trees grew and now nobody can see any of our decorations so we just don’t do it any longer. Inside not much this year, we will have Christmas at DD’s, no company this year so other than my small artificial tree that is about the extent of my decorations…sad isn’t it? I could not find my small angel that I use on top of the small tree so the BIG lace Angel is sitting on top of my little tree this year. I have soooo many decorations that I really need to think about giving them to the grandkids or getting rid of some of them but so many have lots of good memories I hate to part with them…but once I am gone I am sure they will be too so why not do it now?

    I don’t plan to start much this year (famous last words?) and I don’t usually start anything until after the first of Jan. I usually need my dining room table to eat on but this year is different, probably won’t need that. Your seedlings look so pretty makes me want to start something too! ))

    I normally have it all done by now but this year for some reason I didn’t make it..still have a few things to get but most of it is finished. So many of mine are gift cards that I send through the mail although I did get something for the ggkids this year that still needs to be mailed:( I will get that done tomorrow..I don’t know what the  arrangements are for their Dad ( my grandson) to have them so I will just send them to him and a gift card for him too. I like your idea for a box of candy to be included with the card Charlene, I think I may borrow that from you!

    I didn’t do anything exciting today myself..laundry, cleaning, watered the poinsettias in the church.. all normal Saturday chores. I called the gas company today to order more propane for the first of the week…these cold nights are murder on my gas and electric bills.I roasted a chicken, made dressing, gravy and had some peas with that. I will be eating chicken from now until Christmas! I haven’t looked yet to see what is on tv  that isn’t a re-run. I have seen all of the over the top christmas decoration shows I can take for this year. People who spend thousand of dollars just to impress the neighbors have their priorities out of wack…just my opinion. After reading that I know I sound like Scrooge and I really don’t mean it. So I will just say…HO HO HO have a wonderful evening!!!

    Good Morning Melissa and all..DGD and I had a fun time shopping yesterday, we went to all of our favorite shops and a couple of new ones that we had never visited before and won’t again…the prices in both of them were over the top! I still have a couple of things to get but that I will get done locally. Today I need to get laundry done, beds changed and some cleaning in the house. They predict rain for later but that is ok, hopefully I don’t have to go anywhere but over to the church to water the poinsettias.  I should do some baking too if I get some time for that.  You sound like you have a very busy life, once I could keep up with that too but no longer do I need to do that.  I need to call for propane today  I have enough for the weekend so I will be good until Monday. I hope everyone is about finished getting ready for the big day…I am close to that myself. Have a wonderful day everyone.

    I have a pink one that I got at Brent and Becky’s when I worked there. I always wanted more but now that you tell me they are so fussy to start I might just go buy a couple from them.
