    Good morning everyone….It is great to back in the VSR and this morning it sure feels good in here!  We have 36º and tonight is to get colder than that.  One channel says 32º, another channel says 30º, while yet another says 29º.  I’ve got a feeling that it is coming for sure.

    I have lots of stuff to do in the house today, but I know I need to bring some plants in and I have quite a few that I will just ditch in the GH and deal with them next week.  After this cold spell, we are supposed to have several days of beautiful weather.

    The coffee and treats are great….and Wendy, what a nice touch with the pics of the sunrrom and rockers and the lovely bouquet and plants.  Don’t anyone sit on the kitty…..lol

    Have a great Saturday everybody….Charlene

    The main reason for doing this was to keep from having to cut grass in between   & around the shrubs

    I hear you there.  We did a similar project this Spring because DH was sick of mowing around all of the hostas on the north side of our house (he planted all of them).  We decided to dig out the area in between the phlox bed and all around the hostas.  It was quite a job, but it turned out good.  I will try to post some before and after pics.  Charlene

    Ili….Cobaea seeds are very fussy….I am guessing you didn’t follow the directions because I sent you seed that I had bought and they grew for me…..I have never had them form seed pods, so I buy seed every year.   Charlene

    Gayle….looks like you’ve done alot of work, but why no plants going there?  You obviously like the look of mulch more than I do….I’d have that area full of Spring bulbs, followed by early summer blooming plants….then the mid summer bloomers….and last but not least…fall bloomers.  I guess I need color all spring, summer, and fall since our winters are so long.  Charlene

    Bill…..I am so sorry to hear that news.  I pray that all will turn out for the best.  Cancer is always a scarey diagnosis, but he is young and hopefully he can conquer this demon. Modern medicine has performed miracles!   Please keep us informed and we will keep you and yours in our prayers.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 50º and drizzling just enough to make it miserable. I have DGS soming in about 1/2 an hour.  His daycare lady is taking the day of for the homecoming parade….go figure….that isn’t until late this afternoon.  I will take him to preschool at 8:15 and pick him up at 12:15.  School is also letting out early so anyone who chooses can go to the parade.

    This is my last day in the shop until October 1st.  Yesterday my air stapler decided to take a dump.  I can’t complain…..I got it for free from Lair about 3 years ago, and it was used by Tim for some time before I got it.  Today will have to be all sewing jobs.

    Sue….I’d voice my opinion if I were you.  I bet the school board is under the assumption that the company they hired will be better than the old company…..they need to know the facts.  If no one tells them they will never know.

    Molly….I’m ready for the move tomorrow!  The virtual gardener can move in all of the plants tonight, and the virtual maid can get the VSR all cleaned up for us.  I don’t want to wash all those windows….lol.

    Have a great day everyone…..I feel priviledged that I can wear jeans without paying money….one of the few perks of my job!  Charlene

    Good morning Molly, Wendy, Del and everyone else.  It is 43º and only to get into the lower to mid 60s for the next few days.  Next week when I am on vacation look like nice sunny days in the lower 70s….perfect!

    Wendy, I did know that you would be doing tech support, but I thought maybe you also did sales if there were no tech support calls.  I am sure you will be great at talking people through their problems.  Initially they may have to release some steam, but you will be able to simmer them down and by the end of your conversation they will be glad they called and talked with you.  I can see you being excellent at that job.

    Molly….I’m guessing that you’ve recovered well from your weekend party.  We have great apples here this year.  For some reason there are no worms at all….guess the worms didn’t like the heat and drought.  DDIL brought us an apple crisp and a big bag of Wealthy apples that they had picked at a friends house.  They had to go into the cattle pasture on a 4 wheeler to get them.  They were scared because 2 big old Texas Long Horns were chasing them on the 4 wheeler.  Come to find out they were only chasing them to get some apples as treats…..lol.  The land owner always gives them some when he picks apples.

    Last night I watered several of my containers for the last time.  I will be taking cuttings from some of them to bring in and the rest will just have to die a natural death when on Saturday night.  We have forecast of lower 30s and may even dip into upper 20s.  I wonder if Bette had a killing frost last night.

    Del….you sure have alot of fun with butterflies…..I wish I could find some cats and do an experiment.  Maybe I need to take more time to investigate…..they gotta be out there somewhere because I always have lots of butterflies!

    Just another day in my shop, but since it is Thursday I will be meeting 3 of my friends for lunch.  That is always fun.

    Last night when I couldn’t sleep I was thinking about Karen coming home and thinking of others here on the board.  I don’t recall Auntcon or Tina posting for awhile.  I also miss Mayflower from northern Minnesota.  She hasn’t visited the VIP for quite some time.  I hope all is well with them.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Bette…..the hardiest thing in the world on my back is standing at our kitchen counter for any length of time or sitting at the computer for too long.  My back can stand the hard and heavy labor just fine.  Charlene

    I do the same as Wendy.  I am just glad that some of them did so well for you the 1st year, Sandy.  I was certainly surprised when you shared bloom pics.  I look forward to more pics next year.  Charlene

    I am guessing that their 1st prediction of temps was posted when they were expecting a cloud cover for the night.  The clouds must have cleared and they now predict cooler temps becuase of it (I did say that was a guess….and that is usually what they do…..lol)  Charlene

    I guess it makes sense that if they have you blocked from seeing pics that there would also be a block on posting pics…..let’s try this:  They are SO cute!
