    I use bottom heat for almost anything unless it specifies that they need to be chilled…not many things don’t like the bottom heat. I use an electric mattress pad on the dining room table to start mine and they do well there, as soon as they germinate they go out to the greenhouse which is cooler than the house.

    Good Morning all…it is a sunny but cold morning here but as long as the sun shines I can live with the cold. I didn’t get here last night so had to take a few minutes to catch up on everyone’s life. Charlene I am so sorry you had your kitty put to sleep but it is best for her. I know how much it hurts and you will miss her. My Dachshund is almost 3 years past his normal life span and it is getting close for me too…being such a chicken about doing that I keep putting it off.  Guess I should get busy, have to take the trash to the transfer station and then go get some groceries…I take a load to dump then go buy more to dump next week…what is wrong with this picture?

    Have a wonderful day everyone

    I love soup in the winter time. I can make a batch, eat it one night then put the rest into the freezer for other times. I sometimes use the crock pot depending on what kind of soup I am making .

    Gayle I am not sure since I have horrible luck with them but maybe you are watering too much? There are not too many plants I can’t grow and that is one! I either didn’t water enough or too much or they just don’t like me:(

    Good Morning Melissa and all…it is foggy outside but that will burn off soon I hope. I have a sick dog so will need to call the vet and see what she wants me to do about him. I don’t know what the schedule is for our schools, DGD is a senior and only goes part time, she finished her high school subjects last year so is taking some college courses this year. Starting next week she will be “shadowing” a 2nd grade teacher for the rest of the semester…she wants to be an elementary teacher…hope she marries a rich man!!!:) I need to get some shopping done soon, DGD and I usually have a day of shopping together so maybe we can get that done Saturday.

    Good evening Stella and all…it was a bummer of a day for me. Had the HVAC guy here all morning checking out my heat pump and dd’s too. They do it twice a year and we actually get paid to have it done, saves them a lot of late night and weekend service calls. Then it started to rain and it is still drizzy outside so nothing got done out there today other than watering some things in the greenhouse. I made a batch of oatmeal craisin cookies…the friend who put our new mailbox up wouldn’t take anything for doing it and his wife told me his favorite cookie was oatmeal. I didn’t have any raisins but the craisins did the trick. Guess I should do something about some dinner…after sampling the cookies I am not very hungry. It has been a long time since I made bagles maybe I should make some soon?

    He didn’t even stop to say thank you! We “tortoise sat” for a friend once, those guys can move when they want to like herding cats:)

    Good Morning Sue and all.. I know all about the computer problems, mine is on it’s last legs and I am trying to keep it going until after the first of the year. I have appointments with the HVAC guys for both my house and DD’s this morning so I don’t have much time before they get here and I am not dressed yet!  I think most of my gifts will be gift cards too…they all get what they want when they want it.  It is foggy this morning with rain predicted for later today but I will take the rain over that frozen stuff. My oldest GD got engaged this week…so there will be a wedding in Fl later next year.I hope to get some baking done today..I have never been so far behind this late in the season. For some reason I am slow getting things done this year. I hope everyone has a good day with weather they can deal with.

    Good evening all. it seems like you are all busy getting ready for Christmas. I have not even started shopping yet…I went over to DD’s and “supervised” their decorating their tree. Had a nice visit and DGD and I are going to go shopping together one day this week.  She has a few favorite shops she likes to go to and I always go to the Hallmark store for a few things too. Hard to believe my DGD is going to be 18 two days after Christmas! They do grow up so fast!

    I am watching the Christmas Light shows on tv, I can’t believe how much work and money people put into them but they are nice to see.

    Tina I can’t help you there, in fact my camera is so messed up I can’t even take pictures with it now.  I must have hit the wrong button and don’t know what that was to correct it. My dd is the picture taker I need to have her look at mine to see if she can get it back where it should be.
