    Good morning Charlie and Kathy and everybody else.  We have a chilly 25º, but I see right now Kathy is colder than here.  My GH is at 53º….so all is good.  I couldn’t remember which setting I used last year.  Now I know and will mark it like Gayle does.

    TGIF….and it is hard to believe that it is almost November.  Thanks for the donuts, Charlie.

    Kathy….hope your son has a happy birthday.

    I have to run over and get my antibiotics 1st thing this morning and then work for me.  Tonight will consist of answering the door and handing out treats.  We usually get quite a few kids and with it being on Friday night, I am guessing there will be even more.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone!  I am so happy to see that Donna has posted.  Donna….sorry that you are so sick and that Rick is still sick.  You two just take care of yourselves and of eachother….and return real soon!

    Today was not what I expected.  Last Friday I was putting buttons in the back of a dining chair.  I was standing behind the chair and pounding the button needle in with a rubber mallet.  I pounded one a bit too hard and the button needle went through the chair and into my leg.  It hurt a bit, but no big deal……it didn’t even bleed.  On Sunday I had a round spot of blisters about the size of a dime.  It has gotten larger every day and today it is the size of a silver dollar….all blisters and red and hot.  I told the girls at lunch that I was maybe going to go to the Dr tomorrow.  They threatened me that if I didn’t go today they would haul me to the ER tonight.  I went….and I do have infection.  He gave me a prescription for antibiotics.  I picked up the prescription and didn’t look until I got home.  It is sulfamethoxazole (sp?)  and I am allergic to sulfa.  I called and talked to the nurse.  He called in a different prescription and I will have to pick that up tomorrow when they open.

    Soon I am crawling into bed to watch Parenthood.  There was no Greys Anatomy tonight….preempted by Charlie Browns Great Pumpkin….and I’ve seen that before….lol.

    Molly….I am sure you are upset about your daughter leaving….and i would be too, but it sounds like you’ve got a good attitude about it.  I hope you will be able to talk with her by phone occasionally.

    Karen….sounds like you got lots done….and happy that you’ve got your wheels back!  That is an awful feeling….makes a person feel stranded…even if you don’t have any where to go.

    Stella….do you dress up when you go with the kids?

    Gayle….I haven’t thought of Christmas yet….may be cash in cards this year.

    Have a good evening everyone….it is 38º here right now.  I turned the electric heater on in the GH…..it will be a lot colder by morning.

    See you all in the morning.  Charlene

    Good morning, Bette!  I wanted to tell you that I am glad your oriental dinner went well the other night.  It makes me crave oriental food every time I read what you are making….lol.

    I also get carried away with the cutting thing…..what am I thinking?  How are the geranium cuttings doing that I mailed?  I hope at least some of them survived.  Charlene

    Good morning Charlie, Sharon and Sue!  What a nice surprise to see Sharon joining us this morning….where you been, girl?  Glad to hear that all is well with you and George and the family.  Do stop by more often…..and tell George hello from me!

    We have 30º this morning.  I think I will need to turn some heat on in the GH the next couple nights since it is supposed to be much colder than this.  This morning the temp in there is 45º, so that is okay, but don’t want it much colder than that.

    Charlie….I will pass on the hot tea and lemon.  I know it is good for you….sorry that you couldn’t make it through the day yesterday….guess you need more time to recuperate.

    Sue….glad you found a microwave.  You really have to check the delivery thing, don’t you.  I wonder why it is much cheaper if delivered on Sat????   Go figure.  I hope the kids like the chili today….sounds good to me!

    Del…my appointment Monday is with a surgeon.  Glad you got settlement from the insurance company on your car.

    Work in my shop for me today….and Thursday lunch with friends.

    Still haven’t heard from Donna….hope she is good….Melissa must be busy…hope her dad is okay….and Wendy’s probably busy getting adjusted to her new schedule.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Good evening everyone.  Ou high temp for the day was 48º, but at least the sun was shining for part of the afternoon and there was no wind.

    Kathy….those are beautiful sunrise pictures!  I also like your tree pics.  I have several of those on my camera that I took last week, but now the tress are bare.  That is a sign of winter, isn’t it?

    I watched Mysteries of Laura and Modern family.  Right now I have a ½ hr break and then Chicago PD is on….so that I’d stop by and say “hello”.  Have a good night everyone.  Charlene

    Janet, so sorry to hear this news.  Cancer seems to affect all of us, doesn’t it?  It is such an evil disease.  I will keep Shurrell in my prayers…..and do keep us informed.  Charlene

    Steve…a pretty hollyhock…..it is Wednesday in Iowa, but I think you are in a hurry for the weekend to get here….lol….I’m with you!

    Gayle….will that Lantana survive outdoors in a container? I am going to try keeping mine over winter in the upstairs of my shop….just an experiment.

    Steepdrive….what a fun time!  DH and I were saying that we;d like to take a train ride someday.  I’ve only ridden on a train twice in my life.  Once I was in 1st grade and the other was a dinner/scenic ride about 20 years ago.  I will go to your blog and check out more pics.

    I have taken several cuttings of Lantanas this fall…..I hope to keep the mother plants over plus have a few more.  The butterflies and hummingbird moths seem to like them!  Pictures from earlier in the summer.

    Good morning Kathy and Sue and all later.  We have 35º this morning and it isn’t supposed to get very warm all day.  I think I may start my pellet stove at work for the 1st time this year.  I have had the gas on, but that just heats the back half of my shop.

    DH is ready to leave to take BFF for chemo today.  Today is her long day, so they won’t get home until after 5pm.

    Work for me as well today….and not sure what I will do after work either.

    Kathy,  I wanted to tell you that those Blue bunny ice cream containers that I have shared plants with you in also work well for window sill plants.  What a great excuse to eat ice cream….lol

    Sue….sounds like you are having beef n noodles?  Gayle posted a good video of the rocket blowing up.

    Still missing Donna….and wondering how Melissa’s Dad is doing….and curious if Wendy’s new schedule is going well for her.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Good evening everyone.  I din’t look at the temp before coming her, but I know it is cold.  The furnace seems to be running quite a bit, so that us always an indication.

    I had a so-so day in the shop.  I am tufting 2 chairs and the material is so heavy….that makes it very difficult.  Maybe tomorrow things will go better.

    I got a call from my Dr this afternoon that I have an appointment with a surgeon on November 3rd for a consult.  I didn’t realize until I got off the phone that is next Monday!  I guess I’d better work fast on these chairs since I told her they would be done by next Tuesday.

    I am going to watch Chicago Fire and call it a day.  I did make 2 quarts of beet pickles after I got home from work tonight.  I am not crazy about them, but DSon requested them.

    See you all in the morning.  Charlene

    Abey….that really is a bouquet!  I wonder why your rose is only blooming on one side?  I am surprised that side doesn’t tip over and break off with that many blooms.  Charlene

    I also heard it on the news and thought of Gayle immediately….I thought thank God this didn’t happen last night when she was there….maybe that boat guy saved your life.  Now that I read that your DB and SIL are ok….you would have been, too.

    You are right….a LOT of money blown up in a few seconds.  I am sure we will hear more about this on the news.

    Glad you are safe, Gayle.  Charlene

    Melissa…how nice of your DH to help your Mom out….he is a keeper.  Did you read last night’s chit chat?  I told a story directed to you.

    Wendy…I’m not mad at you becuase you are having 70 degree temps today.  Yesterday we had 71º at noon…..right now we have 38º….brrrrrrrr.  What a difference a day makes.

    Stella…..you should get a sun lamp.  I have suggested that to Lair as well….he seems to fall into a depression when we go several days w/out sunshine.  The people that use them say they really help.

    Julie….how lucky for you to be going on a trip to Florida!  I sure hope the weather is nice for you when you are there.  Have you ever been to Florida before?  We haven’t, but DH’s cousin lives there now since he retired and keeps begging us to come and visit.
