    It has been such a long time since I was on Orange Beach! At that time there were no condos there. Any time I see a beach it makes me want to be there. Your pics are beautiful! Thanks for sharing them.

    I didn’t even know it was Sweetest Day, that is new to me but if your DH brought you flowers he is a good dude:) I would reward him with Prime Rib too.

    Good Morning all..I have been here off and on but didn’t dare start the thread because usually there ends up to be two. It is a picture perfect day here, a little cool but sunny so as soon as my laundry is finished I plan to get out there and get busy! Yesterday I got the lawn mowed, it didn’t look high but it was thick! Today I will do the greenhouse lawn and continue to try to make some sense in there too. I have ignored things too long in there while working on the parsonage so there is a lot of cleaning and dumping of things in there. I have a lady who offered to help but I would be too embarresed to have her see it now. Once I get the mess cleaned up I will call her. Yesterday I went to a friend’s and picked kale, apples and tomatoes. I got all of them taken care of and she wants me to come and get more. Maybe the first of the week I can get over there again. I need to get to the store sometime today to get dog food (yes again!) and a ham hock to go into the kale. She has a huge patch of collards growing but I don’t like them until we have a frost, then they are sweeter. I hope everyone has a perfect day today!

    Mine are all still sitting in separate vases…I have yet to arrange them. The only time I have ever dried anything in water was Lavender that I put about an inch of water in the vase and let that evaporate.

    I have Firefox and never saw that either. I have so many virus scanners and adware scanners on this thing I am surprised I can even navigate on here.

    I cut mine when the color was right, put them in vases with NO water.

    Good Morning or should I say good afternoon? I have NEVER slept this late in my whole adult life! I have to get over to a friend’s house to help them pick their tomatoes and kale, she has bone spurs in her foot and can’t do it and she asked me if I would help. The sky is clear, the sun is shining and it is supposed to be a beautiful day for working outside, maybe if I have any energy left I will get the lawn mowed when I get home. I love this weather but it won’t last long before it will be C O L D and that isn’t what I like.

    Good Morning Sue, Leslie and all…our rain “event” didn’t produce much more than to make the grass grow again. It took all day to rain less than an inch. But the sun is coming up and it looks like a really nice weekend for us. I need to get out and get the greenhouse opened up, I closed it because “they” said we would get big storms…we didn’t. As soon as the grass dries I need to mow … again!

    I had the teriyake chicken, steamed carrots and cauliflower, and mashed potatoes that I planned to have last night. I have chocolate cake for dessert if I am hungry before bed.

    My day was a big nothing. After telling us we were in for some terrible weather all day, I buttoned up the greenhouse, came inside and did a few things here. As of this minute (6:31 pm) we had exactly 1/4″ of rain and it took all day for that! I could have had a lot of things done outside but they kept saying it was headed this way! So I did some cleaning, paid some bills, had a couple of long phone calls and just had the dinner I had planned for last night. I got home from the meeting too late to do much more than have a bowl of cereal and hit the hay.

    Good Morning Melissa and all..we are supposed to get storms here today so the first thing I need to do is go out and button up the greenhouse. The weather gurus say we won’t have violent storms that they had west of us but a lot of wind and rain. So I guess it will be an inside day for me. I have family in Al and Atlanta so will have to check on them later. I have plenty to do inside so I won’t get bored. I hope everyone who had storms overnight will be ok. Have a great day everyone!
