    Thank you Chris, we were worried about them. I will keep you all in my prayers so hopefully once they get home they can recover quickly and get back to “normal” again. They are very special to all of us here.

    Yes Del save those plants, don’t let them die of neglect. Steve I am so proud of you for saving those plants…they will reward you for that with their beautiful blooms.  I actually go to Lowes where they mark the small plants down to a dollar, get them and bring them home and repot them and have some beautiful plants that I give to new people at church.  I can’t bear to see a plant neglected.

    Kathy I am so sorry your Mom isn’t doing well. And I am sorry you dropped your project in the dirt, makes for a pretty crappy day all around doesn’t it?  I have’ not done anything exciting today….fed and watered the horse, she is doing so much better on her new diet of alfalfa pellets, olive oil and alfalfa hay. Messed around in the greenhouse for awhile, checked out the heaters to be sure they will work ok when it gets cold enough to use them. Got my hair cut, vacuumed a bag full of dog hair, between my two dogs and DD’s two I do that every day now, they are all shedding. Not much excitement in my life these days but maybe that is a good thing.

    Charlene I am proud of you for doing that. I was told by our local food bank that some things that can’t be bought with food stamps such as TP and paper towels are always welcome. I asked about  money donations and they appreciate that but they have to go down onto the peninsula to the central food bank for those things and since we are a small county with not many volunteers to go down there and limited truck space some things are better donated from the stores. One of our local stores sets up a whole section of things that are lower prices, a lot of store brands too. I use a lot of the store brands myself so I figure if it is good enough for me it is good enough for them. Things like toothpaste, shampoo etc that they can’t use their food stamps to buy. We are seeing a lot of young families in the area that have lower paying jobs and they just can’t make ends meet now.  Everyone who can get things from the food bank have to be approved by the local Social Services Department.

    I usually don’t because like most of the others the table is full of food. Last year all of my kids, spouses and even my Ex and his wife were here so we set up a buffet on the kitchen island and I did have a nice arrangement on the dining room table. This year there will only be 4 of us so might do a few fall flowers …depends on how much time I have.

    Bet since so many here are either diabetic or have family members who are it would be nice sometime when things are slow this winter if you could share some of the recipes you have and anyone else can add theirs too.

    Believe me I feel better donating than getting help but who knows when I may need help myself.  Somehow it falls to me to take our monthly donations to the food bank which I do gladly, the volunteers there are so kind and they appreciate those things so much.

    Kathy I can relate to that…the worst is the guy whose wife sends him to the store, he has to call her on his cell phone to find out what she wants, stands in the middle of the aisle talking as loud as he can discussing brands, sizes, prices for EVERY item she wants him to get. Or the two old bags that meet each other one going one way the other going the other way and they stop to chat. Now one of them can see me standing there but would she move or tell the ole bat in front of me someone was there…….he!! NO! Then there are the ones who hop out of the car, go into the store and get in one of those handicap carts and use the middle of the aisle. We could get together and write a book. [:@]

    I took the trash to the transfer station and went on to the grocery store. So much for ‘sneaking in on Sunday afternoon’ I think everyone else had the same idea. But they had everything on my list and the lines weren’t long so I got out and got home. Before I left I had a load of clothes in the dryer and another one in the washer.  Folded the dry ones and put another load in. I sure do dirty a lot more clothes in the cooler weather than I do in the summer.  Since nobody eats the dark meat of the turkey I got two breasts and I know that word won’t show up right on here….put them into the fridge because like Charlene knows it takes a lot longer than two days for them to thaw. And I like to soak mine in brine before I cook them. If my smoker doesn’t get home before then I will do them in the oven. I have to have two kinds of cranberry sauce – one girl likes the canned stuff and some of us like cranberries ground with oranges. I will make a pumpkin pie and maybe an apple…have the usual green bean casserole ([:(]) dressing, gravy. Not a huge meal like most years but there will only be 4 of us. Time to change loads….

    Thank you for letting us know where he is, I hope he gets better soon, will keep you both in my prayers. Maybe Charlene is right, he had better take that bag off and get some fresh air. [;)]

    I was in the grocery store and all of the fall plants and flowers are gone, nothing there but Christmas Cactus and Pointsettias …outside when I was walking in they were unloading Christmas Trees, when I went out several people were buying them….well I guess if they can start shopping on Thanksgiving afternoon they have to get the tree up before then[:(]
