    Chris, what a sweet son you are to do this for your Mom and for us!  We have been worried about her.  When she hasn’t posted here, nor replyed to emails, I figured something was going on with her parents or her….now we know it is both!  I was one step away from sending the Canadian Mounties out searching for her…..(Just kidding)

    Give her a big hug from Iowa…and tell her to take care of herself and get back her ASAP!  We will keep her, Rick, and her parents in our prayers.  Charlene

    Good morning everyone.  It is 36º and very dense fog….in fact, school is delayed 2 hrs because of it.  Later we should have temps in the mid 50s, and then tomorrow and Thursday will be in the 60s.  Friday the high temp for the day is supposed to be 35º….back to normal November weather. 

    I was just getting ready to come upstairs to the puter last night when I saw cars parking in front of our house.  That made me remember that there was a concert at the school….DGS’s preschool class was in it as well.  I did a quick change of clothes and clean up and made it to the concert on time.  By time I got home, Castle was on, so I never made it to the board at all.  This morning I have been busy reading and catching up on posts from last night.

    I was glad to read Chris’ thread about Donna.  I am sorry that she is so sick, but now we know more than we did before.  I was sorry to read that Kathy’s Mom had a bad day, as did Kathy.

    I just got a call that I will be watching DGS until school starts….not sure if I will get a SOD posted today or not.   I have a feeling this is gonna be “one of those days”…..lol.  Charlene

    Corn is always a must to accompany the turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy.  Growing up, my Mom always served squash and also cooked carrotts, but I am the only one in the family that eats squash, so i don’t do that. None of us care for cranberries….especially the cook….lol…(Kathy, notice I didn’t say “cranberries, yuck”….although I was thinking it) I will make a pea salad and not sure what for dessert…..that varies from year to year….and like Bette said….it very rarely gets eaten because we are all too full.  Charlene

    Steve, I do not cover the seeds and I place them in my closet with a light where the temp is 72-75º….they usually germinate in 10 to 12 days in there.  Good luck and don’t be afraid to ask questions at any time.  I think the growing medium question has been answered for you.  Charlene

    Fabulous pics, Leroy….and I am so glad you posted!  We are trying to keep the weekend thread going, but I am glad you took the incentive to do your own!  I am envious of your job….we would all love to be working there with plants and flowers every day.  Just a question for….my DD works at Plantpeddler in Cresco, Iowa and they send thousands of poinsettias all over the US….where do you get yours from?  So glad you posted your story.  Charlene

    Sue, what catalog was it?  I got Pinetree Orchard yesterday….I have ordered from them, but it was a few years ago.

    [quote user="hopscotch"]They keep telling me that I am there for the entertainment value as much as for the design work!  Is that a good thing?![/quote]

    That is a VERY good thing, Leroy.  It sounds to me like you are very well liked and as big of an asset to your work environment as you are here! 

    Glad that some of your kids were able to contact you today.  Sorry that you had to go to a funeral on your birthday, but I bet it made having another birthday only more meaningful.  Charlene

    Tell her to just take care of herself and we will be here waiting for her when she returns.  Thanks again to you, Chris.  Charlene

    Lots of bittersweet news here tonight.  Kathy, I feel so sorry for you with the circumstances as they are right now with your Mom.  Just do what you can to make time with her as pleasant as possible.  I’m sure you are doing that.

    Karen…yay that you will have your boy home for Thanksgiving….enjoy your time with him!

    Del…..sorry about your neighbor boy.  I’m sure you will keep in touch, but that thought probably doesn’t help the pain right now.

    Gayle….enjoy your time with DS & family.

    I am about ready to head to bed and see what is on TV til I drift off.  It has been a long day.  See you in the morning!  Charlene

    I make those cinnamon ornaments almost every year.  I often mix elmers glue with flour or powdered sugar to make a white paint like for the gingerbread man’s face, buttons, etc.  It works pretty good….but loke the ornaments….not edible….lol.  Charlene
