POOOOF!

Hi haighr, a...hiya Fritz (blush, blush!)...remember me?

Well, I brought over the arrangements given to terris mum.

I am wondering if terri would not mind if we let Broomhilder be a temporary hire. She is a wizz at cleanup and can only stay until midnite 10/31 and she will twitch her nose for free? She does dishes, vacuuming and dusting so fast... its incredible!

Fritz, be a dear and take her out to the broomcloset and keep her there (locked up) for a little while and show her around.

I say Broomhilder stays as long as we can have her. 10/31/ is right around the corner and if we could convince her to stay a while after that, so be it. Terri will be thrilled I am sure since we are shorthanded around here.

Hey BB perhaps Broomhilder and Fritzy hit it off and well you know what I am thinking perhaps a spring wedding in the works???

Hmmm... wonder what their kids would look like! LOL!

Let us know the date! Its sure to be a whirlwind affair!

Very serene, as many times as I have been to the cafe, I never once went out and looked at the beach and water, I always wondered where that little door from the powder room led and now I know! I'll be spending more time watching the water now. Think we should put a few tables out there or should we just stick to beach blankets???
Are you sure you need any more crafts BB, sounds to me like you already have more projects than you know what to do with???
Fritz and Broomhilder are really fond of each other. I saw them in the broom closet earlier and they both looked a bit startled to see me! I don't care what they do long as the cooking and cleaning gets done and if they do it with sassy smiles on their faces, all the better!

Sounds like a plan for the happy couple.

I think beach blankets are a great idea, but I think we also need something to set food and drink on due to the sand. How about also getting those large umbrellas. The sun can be nasty.

Well, your probably right on on the projects, but sounds fun anyway!

Well, I need to get going, going to be a busy few days so I wil probably be scarce. Hope elle and the rest of the gang made it ok. I will see everyone later.

Hi Blossom!

Looks like we've got loads of parcels to open, great! crafty stuff to keep us busy this winter..
There's an old shed in the pinewoods, maybe they could go in there for now? but... Candee will probably say that we need permission to store them there so just ask her where to put them, that's the safest bet, yano how fussy she is about stuff.. lol!!

That, BB, is a baby alligator. When I was in New Orleans a couple of years ago, I took a boat ride on the bayou. Remember that old song, "I'm going back some day, come what may, to Blue Bayou...?" Well, I have always wanted to sing that while on a bayou. It was a gorgeous day.

You need several lifetimes in order to use up all those craft supplies LoL

Hi terri, no, we are still unloading the parcels and putting them in the store room. It will be fun to get crafting again. Im tired so it will be a bit before I even get to opening any for me, but they are all labeled to each of us so maybe someone else can grab a box and show and tell us whats in theirs?

Glad this resort is large enough with each of us having a florists closet to put the boxes in so when we get crafting later, it will be so organized!

I have been workin in the GPS and the office between trips to the loading dock and my paws need a load taken off!

Well it is that time of year BB when strange things happen. Broomhilder I think has found a place in the mountains and I think that Fritz has been sneaking up there after work. I only suggest that because I saw Fritz hurrying in the kitchen the other night and he mentioned something about having to start the fires burning and I know he doesn't have a fireplace but I once heard Broomhilder speak of a little woodstove at a remote mountain cottage? Ah, romance!

I saw Broomhilder and Fritz through the window and they were in the greatroom by the fireplace there. All snuggly and warm. Well, thats just sweet.. she is out of here come midnite on Saturday anyway...she best be twitching her nose and get the kitchen cleaned here though!

So, did they set a date yet? I just hope that when they tie the knot she learns how to hydrate him properly. Poor guy, He has issues with his PH and skin yano!

Oh my I didn't know about the skin thing. I just know that he is like a bear and loves to hibernate over winter so I was hoping that she would be fine with being alone for months on end. I am sure she will tidy up before midnight tomorrow, if not I will look for her at the cabin as I will be up there tomorrow evening as well and think I know where she likes to hang out!

We haven't seen the sun in several days and it isnt likely to be around for a few more, oh well. Least it isn't freezin cold out yet and the clocks change tomorrow so I will have a few weeks of going to work in daylight instead of in pitch darkness.
We are headed to the cabin after work today, will run the gas outta the mower and start preparing to shut the place down for the winter in a few more weeks. Generally after hunting season for rifle at Thanksgiving is over we shut down till spring.

I still have some fall planting to do. Now the tide is in and I got dayliles and dafs to sink in the ground.

Today its 60 and rain,... beats snowm but that I am sure is coming. Got about 200 plants to bury. Two man job and with Fritz on his te-de-te there... going to be a while before I get that job, then I got mowing to finish.. trees to prune and then brush to haul... and not to mention the other odd jobs.

Farmers around here ae liable to get frozen ground before they can get the crop out with all the rain. Crops went in wet, and will be coming out the same.

Days aint long enough with or without the time change when you farm or ranch full time.

Hope to see some old friends drop in the cafe soon as the place has just been too quite, almost spooky.

Why I even heard a pin drop last night and I swear It wasn't me. Maybe we need to get another band in here for the weekend and see if we can draw us up a crowd of folks. Bet we could roust Steven outta bed if we got them loud enough?

Me, I have been busy logging next years garden plans in the GPS6, but have moved works to the office planning the calender as you know. Its a big lineup yano!

Boy, a band, that would be awesome...gonna be hard to hire this time of year with the Holidays. How about a DJ? Gads, Have you seen all the Christmas stuff in the stores lately?

Well, maybe with the holidays upon us, the florists will come in for refreshments.

Here is a little something for the cafe from my annuals that I just cut back.

Maybe we will have to go door to door to hand deliver invitations for everyone to come back.

I know the move across the Mersey was a big one and I am sure everyone is still havign trouble getting settled.

Well, best we get started.. so whats on the Juke for today?

I cant stay too long either, I made a mess in the kitchen and well, being short handed... youno how that goes. But I will be back and forth as time allows!

I try to avoid stores at all costs BB. I abhore shopping. Steve and I always travel at Christmas, no shopping no gifts just a nice relaxing holiday. We go all out at Thanksgiving with the food and hunting. We decided after the kids married and had other family that we would bow out so they wouldn't have to make a choice about where to spend the holiday. Sometimes it is hard not doing the big holiday celebration like we did when they were young but things change and I think when I am sitting in the Bahamas this year sipping a bahama mamma, I will likely be glad we travelled once again.
Sounds like you are really busy this time of year. Only plan I am making for next season is hoping to get some bittersweet and try my hand some more with the wreaths or centerpieces. Was thinking of making one with the honeysuckle in the spring. Remind me if you think of it then LOL!

I That reminds me, hope they get the poinsetta order going! know what you mean with the kids gone and how an empty nest can be! We are both tired of traveling and could just use some nice quality time.

Well, that ham and cheese was delicious. Best wipe the mayo off my chin and get to the next thing on the list. I think the chickens beckon.. hope they have eggs!

Man, that sub sandwhich over there that Fritz is eating looks great! Burp, but no way am I eating another! I hope him and Broom will get together again and decide on their date.

So still no music eh? Someone ought to kick that Juke. Maybe the Fonzerella could whack that thing into submission?

Haighr, I have chocolate mint growing in a hanging basket in the house. If I get it through the winter maybe I can split some with you. I could maybe try to get you some bittersweet, but please check out the thread on it... you might change your mind after reading on it!

Well, the new GPS 7 is up and Red is telling us about her new GPS the hub made for her! C'mon down when ya get the chance!

Im stuck in the office again today... will I ever get done catalogging all those photos? Probably not, but I keep trying. If you need me, I will be around here somewheres bouncing back and around!

Elle, dont make yourself scarce! We need some new florals for the cafe you know. We are waiting for terri to come back and the rest of the gang too! Man its been a busy summer!

Thanks BB - I read some on the bittersweet and understand that the oriental is very invasive and destructive, but the American not so much. I would love some mint and bittersweet if you have any to spare as I have an open field across from us that would be a great place for the bittersweet. Matter of fact next year I plan to put gourds over there as well as a pumpkin ???

Here is a new one for the cafe and perhaps Fritz can cook up the artichoke at Thanksgiving?

Only flower arrangement I can offer is last year Christmas centerpiece but since that's not too far away again,I guess it'll work.

The photos now that are entered are really professional and way outta my photo capabilities but sure enjoy looking.
Hey BB, I don't think Fritz has popped any question yet - let's not get too ahead of ourselves and hire somebody that we can't pay later on. Thatn is a great little arrangement conglomeration you put there by the window - do you think Steve will see it and perhaps come out and play!

Haighr, have you thought about ordering some amaryllus or poinsettas? Paperwhites would be a nice holiday touch too!

I usually get my poinsettas from our church. They have some lovelys.

Amaryllus become throw away bulbs for me... but the paperwhites! Aaaaah, now those, I love and willput them to the garden anytime.

Elle, are you still at the senior home? Bet, they would love to be getting your arrangements!

I have to check out the new table-arrangement thread, that sounds like a great idea and Thanksgiving is such a grand time to have them. I will not be doing any this year, but hope to be making wreaths up. I am behind on orders.

I don't do much with the Christmas decorations just a few that I have had around for years. We only do a real tree and likely won't again this year as we are travelling. I don't really care for the look of amaryllis much - I sometimes get some mauve - e poinsettias but likely won't this year either. Am I sounding bah humbug yet!
Just a lot to unpack and get out for the holiday season and with working I find I do less each year what with the cabin and then travelling.
I will have to find a pic of the Christmas tree we did one year at the cabin with antlers for the topping and arrows and pinecombs and deer and turkey calls and my 25 year old strand of popcorn that is still white to this day!

Cut the vine down then paint the wound of the part still attached to the roots w/ un-diluted bush killer.
They're all over the place in the south and a royal pain.Only up side...hummers love them.

The variegated variety is a lot slower growing and so far not invasive in my yard...So Far.

That reminds me we need to get the new sign up for the cafe. I'll work on that this evening. Ever since we bought this place that sign has bugged me. Has anyone ever thought about us using the rest of this huge place as a bed and breakfast.

BB don't feel bad, it was my idea to capture her so I'll take the heat for the sprained knee. Besides if she hadn't been ducking us for so long we would not have had to go to such lengths so she really only has herself to blame!

No cheesecake this year Terri, I am going to try my hand at a Red Velvet CAke, never even tasted one so I won't know if it is good or not. Got a great recipe for it from Dea here at DG and will likely have my kitchen painted in red before Wednesday is out. I'll try to take some photos. And then the pumpkin pies and all the other fixins.

Weather has been perfect fall weather the last few days - high in the low 60's, low about 40. Did a little bit of yard work, but have to concentrate on cleaning the house now. Thanksgiving is at my sister's (I just have to make a salad and a jello mold), but am having guests from Texas over for 5 days after Thanksgiving. Crunch cleaning time!! So, I just can stop by the cafe briefly to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

BTW, a bed and breakfast is a lovely idea. Those are my favorite getaways - and what can be more pleasant than a nice homecooked breakfast with garden friends? How's that velvet cake coming along, Candee???? Terri - did you stay at that B&B?

Roses can be dried nicely in silica sand. Although they can also be dried by letting them go natural...or hung upside-down...

I have left roses in bud vases and after the water has evaproated, the rose is fine! Well good luck on trying! I cant wait until summer now to see our climber back in bloom!

That reminds me, I should probably bed down that climber for the winter soon. They said it was sposed to snow this week and it never did. I usually wait until after the first snow then bed it down.. This rose is well over 60 years old. It was the hubs granparents. So it probably is even older than that.

Someone in a county over got a 25 pointer.. sposed to been the biggest buck yet in the state.

Been seeing a lot on the move here. Lots of roadkill.

Well, I have to get my big butt in gear, get house cleaning... the place is getting rather slimey! UGH! Maybe Fritz will fix the dryer before I have a kanipshun trying to dry clothes in the snow. Not that we have any, but its coming and theres a back up in the laundry. OY! Just hope the dang washer keeps running or I will be running down to the creek to beat the clothes on a rock.

Me too. That wiley whitetailed old buck must have lived in some poor farmers cornfield and apple orchard for a very long time! Heard the hunter got him in a freak way. If I heard right they said the hunting ace shot the poor deer in the ear.. kind of a lame dumb shot if you were to ask me, but when he hit him in the ear the buck freaked out and fell off a cliff and into a creek and then drowned... Good thing I wasnt warshing clothes that day! Can ya see me now with those antlers stuck in my big old poor BBQ-ed hide? Be worse off than that poor white donkey Dave has been posting in the weekly newsletter! LOL! Old BB would be hollering for a medic for sure!

Well...dang deertails are getting deep here!

Cant wait till fishing and frog season!

Well, heres reeling them in for ya! Catch ya later!

We are headed back up to the cabin Friday and will likely shut the water down and fridge off and such and call it a season. We have 2 deer in the freezer which is plenty for us and will just sit back until next season when we start up all over again. Then it will be fishing and froggin and turtle season.
Doc says now I have pneumonia and gave me more meds, hope I kick this thing soon as won't be long till the holidays are here. Guess the warmer weather will knock it outta me if nothin else.
You would have looked funny down at the creek there BB. Reminds me of last nights' news there was a deer that was stranded (beached) on some rocks in DC and he had a nice rack and they had to tranquilize him to get him back on dry ground. They should have called for Steve, he would have removed him for free he, he!!!

how about some pumpkin & peanut butter soup (___)?
I had it many years ago & it was yummy, but the lady of the house wouldn't give me the recipe.
Hope the knee is coming along Terri -I have seen a few people going through recovery from knee or hip surgery at the RSA - biggest thing is to take it slowly.
We hire out mobility scooters which helps.
Although one chap has never given his up..
in hindsight he would have been better off without it.

http://www.fabulousfoods.com/recipes/article/210/18717 Servings: 12
Author Notes: The combination of peanut butter and cream, makes this unusual soup very rich. It goes together in a snap for an elegant first course. A hollowed out fresh pumpkin shell makes a unique serving tureen
Ingredients: 1 medium onion
2 stalks celery
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
5 cups chicken or vegetable stock
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 can (29 ounces) pumpkin
OR equivalent fresh cooked pumpkin
1/2 cup half & half
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon coriander
1 1/2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
salt and pepper to taste
Instructions: 1. Finely mince the onion and celery and garlic.

2. Melt the butter in a stock pot and sauté the onion, celery and garlic in the butter for about five minutes or until soft.

3. Add flour and stir for a minute or two until it's dissolved.

4. Add the stock, followed by the remaining ingredients, whisking the mixture so it remains smooth.

5. Simmer for about fifteen minutes and serve.

YUMMY!

Hi everyone, thanks for all the medicinal remedies, I feel better already.

Zany, now that is some concoction with peanut butter, perhpas will give it a whirl sometime, have you I assume you have?
Terri, even on a bad hair day you manage to make it look fab! Wild, but fab.
BB, did you go and leave that zebra bra on the tree again lat year? I don't recall having seen it - that table dancin has got to stop.
Dalfyre, these gals really get outta hand sometimes LOL.
Now I know I have been a bit lax while under the weather, but I promise to have the new Christmas cafe up and running by Sunday, I have some great ideas just need to take the time to put them together and it is a bit chilly outside!

I'm thinkin'of something subtle this year...maybe a nice chartruce and lilac stripe with a red and gold boa. I'd like lots of reindeer bells at the hem and the cuffs...I might top it off with a silver and gold trimmed elf's cap and a pair of leopard print spiked heel boots. I wouldn't want anything too flashy you know, being the shy and mousy type that I am ;~)
