    It was a beautiful day here…I got all of my laundry caught up from my disasterous septic problems. Seems so good to have it all done! I have a meeting at church tonight. It was pretty cloudy most of the day but it has cleared off now and it may be chilly overnight.

    I have a lot of them that I used when I had the business. Because mine are older they are sturdier than the ones we can get these days. Some of the new ones will dump plants all over the place if they are not picked up just “so”.

    Good Morning Larry and all…it is so foggy that I can’t see the greenhouse from here but it is supposed to clear off and be nice later.  I know it doesn’t take much to make me happy so today I am happy to know I can “flush” again. Have a wonderful day everyone!

    So sorry to hear this but I am sure with all of our prayers for her she will do well. I also enjoyed meeting her at Bette’s she is such a wonderful person.

    I never use seed starting mix I start all of mine in the same Pro Mix that I grow everything in and never have a problem with them. State taxes are responsible for a lot of the difference in gas prices and when I was at Bette’s the price of cigarettes was so high I would have quit right then. As it is now they are still less than $5.oo a pack here but I quit so don’t have to pay any of them. I paid 1.99 for regular gas last week, just heard that the prices are going up again so tomorrow I will fill up again.

    Spring can’t get here too soon to suit me Charlie. I finally got someone here to figure out my septic problems and they were much worse than I thought. The pump that pushed the water out to the field lines got hung up and nothing was going through there for a long time. He had to go get another machine to finish the job, there goes my savings account but at least I will be able to flush again:( I guess I will be living with this old computer awhile longer. As for supper I don’t have a clue, need to think about that later after I pay his bill. Maybe bread and water???

    Good Morning all…nothing much going on here today it looks like rain is in our future. I guess at this rate our driveways won’t get done before the 4th of July! Right now I am waiting to hear of I have to take dgd to school, since she can’t drive with that foot. I don’t dare start anything until I know what is happening with her. I hope everyone has a great day, good roads and lots of sunshine!

    Hello Charlie and all..it was a beautiful day here I did get some trimming done in the greenhouse between driving DGD to work…her right foot is in a cast so she can’t drive. I know it drives her crazy to have to have grandma drive her places. I went to town and got a few things at the grocery store…they have all of their seeds out there now, that is the first time I have ever seen them there. I was a good girl I went right past them:)) I just had some supper and I will see if I can find anything to watch on tv that isn’t a rerun. I won’t even start any seeds until that greenhouse is in better order…

    I was afraid we would get more than one GM post so I waited for someone to open the sun room. I will answer this one since I believe that Charlene will move hers…or maybe not! It is frosty this morning but supposed to warm up quickly to a nice warmer day.  I actually brought the things in from the greenhouse to start some seeds but not sure that will be today…too many other things needing attention…and since DGD can’t drive she has to be picked up at school at 1:30 so I will get a few groceries before then…dog food is almost gone and I am not looking forward to having my ankles chewed at supper time.  Guess I should get some cleaning done in this house today although that sunshine is looking mighty inviting…but still too chilly to work outside yet.

    I love that plant! So far I have managed to stay away from all of the stores that sell plants but I know it won’t last much longer…my favorite nursery will be opening soon and that can be a disaster for me.

    Good evening everyone. It was a nice day here I got to work in the greenhouse with the door open this afternoon.  Supposed to be even warmer tomorrow before we go back to winter again. I am having problems with both of the toilets again, everything else works great but those two just will not flush! I have to take DGD to school in the morning since she can’t drive with her foot in a cast…she really did a number on that toe! As soon as I get back I will call a plumber. I didn’t want to call today because it was a holiday and to be honest I didn’t want to pay Holiday Rates! :( Everything in the whole house works great just the two toilets. It all goes to the same place so I don’t understand why that isn’t working right. It did ok for a couple of days now today it is bonkers again.

Here it is creeping charlie it drives me up a wall, you can dig, pull until your hands are raw and the next day up it comes again.
