    I had a very boring day.  Let me tell you, I have alot of respect for my nephew that lost his arm in a PTO farm accident a few years ago.  He does everything with only one arm and I felt helpless all day with only partial use of my left hand….tomorrow will be better!

    Molly and Gayle…..enjoy your beautiful snow and think of it as fertilizer for your gardens!  Just stay inside and look out at it….it is very pretty!

    Stella….our Walmart has no seeds out and when I asked them about it they said late March or April….Hello!!!  LOL

    Sue….you keep fighting for the kids…..there may someday be a movie about you doing so…sorta like that movie “Norma Rae”.  Good to see you here.  Our school is delayed in the morning when temps are colder than -15º…..and we have been cloder than that by far with windchill, but they go by the thermometer reading not the windchills.

    Maxine….glad you had a nice day.  We had sunshine and snow….but just a sciff….go figure.

    Sandy….wish I was there to help with the essay….I love writing.  I have a file with short stories that I have written “From my Front Porch”  My kids will find them when I am dead and gone and they will enjoy reading them….and then they will burn them….lol.

    Lair….what is Tim making you for supper?  Glad to hear you got your seeds ordered.  I hope you are as happy with Swallowtail as I am.

    I also hope Del checks in soon and that she makes it home safely.  Charlene

    Sandy there were 2 weekends that were beautiful, but you really need to look at the combination one on the weekend of the 5&6….the next weekend was single flowers in containers….Jan 12&13….last weekend was vines….and lots of good ideas there as well. 

    I think you are all ganging up on me!!!  LOL   Charlene

    Maxine….glad you got away, but I know how you feel….sorta.  My DH doesn’t have a disease, but he loves to use remotes w/out his glasses on….and if things aren’t right….he just keeps pushing buttons.  One day I came home and he had everything in Spanish….PLUS he had turned on the closed caption and that was in spanish as well. He said….”I didn’t do anything….the cats must have walked on the remotes and did this.”   Does he think I was born yesterday?   I now have color coded tape on the only buttons he is to press….so far so good.  Charlene

    Molly…..sometimes I luck out and get a good combination of pretty and healthy plants….those I photograph and share……next year I will take a pic of those that do not get onto this website….LOL.  I always think that practice makes perfect, right?  Charlene

    Del….you have GOT to hook up with your repair mans wife…..if he could identify at a glance that those are seeds, she has got to be as bad as the rest of us.  She may have seeds that you need and vice versa!  LOL  Charlene

    I actually have no pain since I took the bandage off and took a nice long bath in Dial antibacterial soap as my bubble bath (does that ever suds up!)  They told me to keep baccitracin or something like that on it if it felt dry, but to let it dry up and heal ASAP…..well, it doesn’t feel dry so I am going with out the salve (probably because I don’t have such a thing here)  My Mom always said that fresh air heals things faster….so I am trusting that she is watching over me right now….lol

    Del….may call you tomorrow….but I have a baby shower and then DGS for the day and night.  If not, I will call you on Sunday.  Charlene

    Glad everyone is home safely….or so I think.  Steve, that ice is deadly and usually it is because of the distracted or over confident driver that thinks “the roads are fine….why is everyone going so slow?”….you know what I mean.  Glad you are home and can relax.  Hopefully things will be better for you tomorrow.  Charlene

    [quote user="Stelios"]Charlene…..the magic word here is NEED……[/quote]

    Oh yes, Stella….my addiction has progressed far beyond want….it is now NEED!!! You know the feeling….like you just will not be able to carry on without these flowers!  If you aren’t feeling the “need” yet, you are still in the early stages of SSD.  LOL  Charlene

    [quote user="jcolbert40"]Everyone may not know this, but Maxine’s husband Ted has dementia.[/quote]

    Joanne….every man over the age of 40 has that once they get a remote in their hands….lol

    I am not laughing because he has dementia….I am just saying how much of what he did is caused by that….or is some of it just because he is a man?  Charlene

    Wow….I wish I had a neighbor like like that!  My neighbors just like to give tours of my yard, but would never be able to help me out if I were gone….nor would I let them….LOL  Charlene

    Good morning Del, Molly and all who visit later.  It is still January in Iowa…..we are starting our morning at a -6º with a -25 windchill. 

    Molly….I bet your white ground cover is pretty!  I love snow, but I am tiring of the cold very fast.

    Del…..I hope you don’t get that ice….yuck!  I hope that your friend continues to rally.

    Just another Thursday for me.  I will be having lunch with friends and other than that, just working in my shop.

    Have a great day everyone.  Charlene

    Dr was a she, and offered pain meds, but I declined.  This is my 1st incident in using razors on a daily basis for over 32 years….just an accident.  Charlene
