Thanks for the new thread, Kelli. Great bonsai.

KC Metro area, MO(Zone 6a)

Under Dense Fog Advisory til Noon tomorrow......again. Fog will freeze overnight and make roads slick. Visiblilty will be near zero at times.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Celia: your photo from the past sure gives the impression that 3 happy kids got bikes as gifts that year? Which one were you?
Kelli: Those are some great bonsai! That last one is especially unique! Was that hail in your area?

My son and grandson and I went to see the movie Avatar this afternoon. Absolutely amazing--I've never seen a movie like it--not even the Star Wars movie can top the special effects in this movie! I didn't like some of the language in the movie, which is why I rarely go to a movie these days, but those special effects were something else. I can understand why it has already broken all box office records!!

After a rainy evening and night, today turned out to be another lovely day. The sun came out this morning and the temp got up to near 60F. It was great! I did take time to get out and take some pictures of the green things that are poking up through the leaves. In spite of all the cold weather we have had lately, things are happening beneath the ground! :o)) This is David--a white phlox which was given to me by another DGer.

My brothers family, L to R: Geoff, Justin, Crying Tim, Carolyn, and Erin. Tim did get a bike and he knew it. It was just outside the shot. Tim had a habit of crying when his picture was taken. No on knows why and he has since given up the habit.

This was him in Jan. '08. Scott, Not Crying Tim and Carolyn.

Glad to see Tim quit crying..lol!

Kelli that's SOME Hail!
Looks a lot like the storm that tore up our Hosta last Spring.

Adina looks like the doughnuts Mom used to make...Yum!

Well we ended up having drizzling rain all day.... we might have hit 43.
But considering just a few days ago we weren't breaking 23......

We've seen all but the biggest Koi, but it's very good at hiding so we're not worried.

Can't believe that Phlox is so big already WOW!

Well the East side of the room is sanded, primed and painted (well first coat anyway)
If the rain has really moved out I'll start the trim tomorrow while Robyn puts on the second coat.
Then we get to move everything to that side and finish the West side of the ceiling...

Kelli! Now that's some Hail! :-O Very 'thick' looking. Thanks for the new thread. :) The bonsai show must have been great. I always think they are so neat! :D I hope you don't get all of that predicted rain! 20" is way too much!
Mau, Yep, I'm glad that he isn't crying any more, too! ;D And You've got Phlox!! Oh Wow! I think it was you that asked (a thread or 2 ago) about our heat pump...We like it really well...works great all year long. The highest our heating/cooling was last months at $170, but our house is only about 1500 sq. ft.
Adina! Save some for me! They look ... Yummmmmmmmy! :DI love the old buildings/museum! Very interesting.
Celia, Yes you are so good already w/your camera! Keep 'em coming! ;)
Dyson is all of your snow gone?

I found out the other day that my boss is into gardening! LOL! She has a degree in Biology w/ a concentration in Botany! She helped run a well respected green house in Floyd Co., Va. for some time. She also knits (wool), including socks, but the neatest thing is that she cards & spins the wool. She said that she needs to separate her lily's this year! Yippee!!! Guess what I get?! :D

Well, better get a move on...
Have a great day! Everybody!

I'm really exhausted after the birthday party yesterday .... just want to crawl back into bed. It was really nice though, Hildur Eva was happy and that's what counts :-) I'm having her class party on Wednesday and then I'll be done!

Too tired to comment - so I'll just wave Hi! to everybody.

Kelli - those bonsai trees are really cool!

Rannveig,

Hildur Eva is a beautiful little girl, and looking at those cakes made me hungry. I am sitting at my computer with my morning coffee, but haven't eaten anything yet.

It is 46 F. here this morning, but should get to near 70 to day and 70's the rest of the week. That's good, because I have a ton of work to do on my new koi pond. Man! It's not even February yet, and I am looking for Spring.

Don

Cincinnati, OH(Zone 6b)

Beautiful Shots Rann!
I love that table/sideboard.... and Selma is certainly getting tall!

Foggy here and just under freezing.
We should hit the upper 40's and sunny....
Mid 50's projected by the weekend!

Ric

Fayetteville, AR(Zone 7b)

Hi Everyone!

Rann, Hildur Eva is a very pretty girl! Watch out for those boys! LOL

Those cakes do look yummy.

Celia when I was growing up we had yellow shag carpet, mom said it was really gold but it always looked yellow to me.

Cool bonsai Kelli! I remember that hail storm, we had just moved back here!

Well here's the weather report, my mom should be in surgery as we speak, so that's where my mind is right now.

Ric: so glad the Koi seem to be doing well. You and Robyn are making progress on the sewing room!
Joey: that's a good photo of the "frozen" tree. Lucky you to like your job and the people you work with and you have a boss who is going to share daylilies with you!!! Has she knitted any wool socks for you? LOL
Rann: tell Hildur Eva, please, that I like her pink sweater top. Wow, all those goodies on the table looked delicious. What kind of cake was that in the center with all the white icing on it (or maybe it was whipped cream?)?
Adina: I forgot to say that the donuts made me lick my lips! Yummy! Wish I had a private jet--I would jet around the U.S. and pick up my DG friends and we would all fly over for a taste of your home-baked desserts! LOL
Crissy: prayers have been going up for your mom.

Another nice day on tap here. Supposed to be into the low 60's all week but with a chance of rain later in the week. It will certainly feel like spring for a few days.

Autumn Joy Sedum is poking up through the leaves.

Thanks, Joey. My wish is to make merry piles of cash with the camera. LOL $170 for heat? Wow! Our highest has been $80.

Rann, waving baaaaaaack! ^_^

This stuff doesn't go with any of OUR stuff.

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Celia: I agree--that border doesn't go with any of the stuff you have. If memory serves me from the photos I have seen of your house, you have oriental furnishings? It looks as if you have tried to take that border down without too much success--LOL. One word of advice--don't rent a wallpaper steamer--they don't work, so save your money.(and how do I know that? LOL) Just spray lots of water on the border and use a good scraper.

We flew home last Thursday-good flight; terrible icy/snowy road home w/many in the ditch. But, it's great being home.
Thanks for the new thread, kelli. My oldest daughter/family flew down to Disneyland on Friday and will drive on down to the San Diego zoo later this week. She says it's pouring rain, but still managing to have a good time. Makes a nice mid-winter break from Alaska weather.
hello all~
This overhanging curl has been in place since mid-December; it's been slowly slipping off the metal roof. We broke it off a few days ago after we got home.

Early, and anyone else, this is where I started ''Barn Faces.''

http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/f/farmlife/all/

It's 32, foggy in town, cloudy and chilly. Dense fog advisory till noon. Well, noon has come and gone. It's still here.

Thanks for the answers Kelly.

Ric, wow! Nice room! Really really nice room with paint!

Marsue, thanks, and I do have a lot of books. I got my medical records out and it hasn't gone up. It's gone down!

Chrissyr, it's too bad a job offer doesn't open up for your degree. I think I'd start looking. At least you have a job while you search.

Adina, I love doughnuts!!! Oohhhh, they look so good!

Celia, it says some lucky kids got new bikes! I remember when gold carpet was ''in.'' What a bunch of cuties! The story of Crying Tim cracked me up!

Kelly, neat bonsai. It's amazing that some are very old trees. Wow, that's a lot of hail!

Joey, lucky you to have a great boss like that!

Rann, I love her dress and her cake! Well, no wonder you're so tired. Everything looks so delicious! You put a lot of hard work into everything. I hope you get a long nap!

Howdy Don!

Chrissyr, hope your Mom comes out of surgery OK.

Celia, I'm sure the border was pretty at some point in time ;o)

Kiska, same story here except our curl wasn't so thick. That one is downright scary!!

That is certainly the most hail I have ever seen. We don't get it here all that often.

Sally, when I was in high school, I had hair as long as yours. My mom didn't like long hair so she made me get it cut before my senior picture. A few years ago I started letting it grow as long as it can, but it doesn't get as long anymore. It's probably 5 inches above my waist. My hair is fine and without body and there isn't a whole lot I can do with it except let it grow.

Kiska, the snow tunnel is pretty funny.

Celia, my parents had lime green shag carpet in most of the house, and red in the basement, and yellow in my room, and blue and red in my sister's room. Yellow was not my color of choice, but apparently I had no say in the matter.

We got around 3/4" of rain overnight and another 0.4" since this morning. The power was off for about two hours. I made a fire in the fireplace for the first time in a couple years. One of our windows is leaking badly. DH tried to caulk outside, but apparently that's hard to do when it is raining. It looks like now he's going to try to cover the area of the wall with pond liner. It is dark like twilight and pouring at the moment.

(Zone 7a)

Kiska, we could have a contest on when the snow will finally fall off. The winner gets to be right!

I'm sure the lady who lived here before liked the border. She had a different one in the bathroom (roses) and the bedroom (tulips). Both were around the middle of the room not the ceiling. MUCH easier to remove! LOL

I had no problem in the dining area but the hall is giving me difficulties. Well...fits, actually. The water isn't doing the job and I have a chemical on it now that doesn't seem to be helping, either. Grrr...I even got a scoring tool. Grrr, again!

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

I'm sure the border was fine back in the day, but now it looks soooo '80s. There was a border in one of our bedrooms (child's sports theme) and DH couldn't get it off, so he covered it with a border of a different design.

(Zone 7a)

It appears as if they put mud up and then put the border on while it (the mud) was still wet. I may just paint over it.

(Zone 5a)

Thanks everyone for you kind comments :-)

Mau - that pink sweater top is actually a dress I knitted for her this fall :-) Thanks!

The white cake is meringue with berries and whipped cream in the middle .... it's a standard in most cake parties over here in various forms. Equally loved by kids and adults ;-) lol Fresh berries are outrageously expensive now so I've started using mixed frozen berries instead of fresh strawberries ...... I made it in the shape of a flower this time ..... I've often colored the meringue pink and shaped it in a heart as well ...... I made a very basic meringue, just eggwhites and sugar. Often chocolate chips, coconut and/ or Corn Flakes are mixed in. Sometimes part of the sugar is replaced with brown sugar ( brown meringue with whipped cream, bananas and chocolate chips was my absolute favorite cake when I was a kid ..... ) Hildur Eva specifically requested that the carrot cake muffins would be decorated with carrots .... so I made little carrots from royal icing on Saturday night ...... never tried that before ..... turned out OK, at least she was happy with the results! lol

Celia - yeah, I see your point on the border ;-) lol Really like that wall clock :-) Getting rid of those wall paper borders can be such a pain ... good luck!

Thanks Sally :-) I actually didn't go back to sleep, just been really tired all day ..... i did have two cups of tea to try to wake me up .... I normally don't drink caffein but I might have to start if I ever get a job ;-) lol

Kiska - that overhang is just amazing to me! :-o

I remember carpets .... vaguely ...... hardly see them anymore here .... everyone has hardwood floors now.

One more of the frozen waterfall from a week ago ......

Foggy. Dense fog advisory extended til tomorrow. Probably won't go anywhere. They are saying we might see some sun tomorrow afternoon. Yeah right. LOL

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Wow, Jackie, that is some overhang! I've never seen anything like it. waving back to you~~~~~~~~
Sally: I'm surprised your cholesterol went up with you eating oatmeal every day. Guess those commercials were wrong, huh? At least the kittes have a nice boxing ring to fight in. I went over and posted on your barn thread. I'm looking forward to seeing other photos of barn faces. :o))
Celia: I think that painting the border might be your best bet, after you sand it lightly first.
Kelli: your childhood home sounds a lot like the house that Pau and I bought when we first got married in 1984. It was only 12 years old at the time but it was outdated even then--had a different color of shag carpet in every bedroom--yuck! We gradually remodeled the whole house (3200 sq. ft.) but it took a while because we did it ourselves except for the actual carpet-laying. The whole house had paneling, too, which we painted.
Rann: do you have a knitting machine or did you knit Hildur Eva's dress the "old fashioned way"? It is lovely!!
Pepper: hope you do get some sun tomorrow!

according to the Weather Channel it is currently 56F--can you believe it?

Well, actually, yes, I can. When it rains a lot here, it warms up back east.

We got 1.9 inches of rain over the past two days. DH could not get the window to stop leaking while it was raining, but after it stopped, he put some kind of gunk on the outside of the house. Hopefully that will work. We'll know soon. 100% chance of rain tomorrow. I told DH not to bother resetting the clocks in the kitchen. The power will probably go off again before the week is out. Nothing here is very well equipped for rain.

Here are someones' weather pictures. I think this is the L.A. River.

That second photo is actually in Tujunga and about 2 miles from my BIL's place.
Didn't burn there but all the hills above it were fried.
I figured the mud would be flowing.
Hope no one was in the LA River channel!

Kelli after this is over I'd pull the windows and reseal them correctly.
It's a cheap, fairly easy fix and well worth the time.

Rann that dress is Beautiful! Nice Work!

Kiska you should have just walled up the back side of that glacier and used it as a walk-in freezer!

Celia they may well not have primed the wall before putting up the border.
They make a wheeled tool for piercing wall paper.
Then spray it w/ a very warm water/vinegar mix, let stand for 30 minutes and start scraping.
We stripped three walls last Spring that way.

We got a lot of the trim done today.
We had to rip all the lumber and then cut, mount, sand and prime...
The two windows were put in last year... well at the time we figured them on 3/8" drywall..
we used 1/2" .. so we had to shim all the window jambs but it came out well.

We should have it done and painted tomorrow.
Then we will move everything east... and finish the west side of the ceiling.
Have to run a bunch of wiring to the box before we can close it up.

I'll have some pictures tomorrow.

All the fish are OK... we were able to get a head count today.
I don't think we broke 40... foggy here this morning too.

Ric, Can't wait to see the room finished, but at the pace you're going it shouldn't be a very long wait! ;) Looking Good! :D Glad all the fishies are OK...ours are, too. The heaters are still in the pond, but not on (just in case).
Rann, What a Gorgeous dress! Knitted, you say? Great! :D I see that Selma has that cute little bunny hidden in her jacket! So sweet! :D
Celia, I have no suggestions for your dilemma, but Rics idea sound pretty good! Your heating is only $70! :-O And they are wanting to raise ours!
Mau, ever since I got my 'puter' back I can't access FB. So I gave up...
Crissy, It takes time, but I finally got a job that's right up my alley (w/my degree). I wanted to work for the 'feds', but would have had to move... I don't think I would have been as happy there as I am where I am. Heck! I could have had a job in the Antarctic off the coast of Australia! LOL! But I'm too old for that stuff! ;) Good Luck! Hope the sugery went well...
Sally!!! LOL! I'll have to go take some barn pics! :D I'd bet E_B, Ric & Bernie could get some good ones!

Well must get ready for work...
Have a Great Day! All!

This is my first time to try the new "quote" feature--not sure just how to do it but anyway, Kelli, I suppose the next time I want my temperature to warm up, I need to pray that you will get rain! LOL
That LA river is nasty looking--wouldn't want to be swimming in that! The poor fireman ended up a victim himself, didn't he. I guess having a mudslide aimed at you is just as bad as having an avalanche headed your way
Ric: who needs Google when we have you--you are just a veritable goldmine of information. Did you memorize an encyclopedia or something? LOL and I don't say that in a sarcastic way, either.

Pretty good. There haven't been any predatory problems lately. (Knock on wood.) The boo-boo has pretty much healed up on the one fish. Working in Antarctica? Sounds interesting and exotic, but yeah, that's for unattached 20-somethings. Jobs don't usually turn out to be as glamourous as first thought anyways. There is a reason why it's called "work", you know. ;-)

Quoting:
That LA river is nasty looking--wouldn't want to be swimming in that!


It's a typical western "river" - ankle deep 95% of the time and a raging torrent the other 5%. People do drown in it every year. Sometimes it is homeless people living in the willows and sometimes it is people messing around and getting too close and once in while there is even someone who thinks it would be fun for innertubing. When I first moved out here, there was talk of making the L.A. River bed into a part-time freeway, but that idea died of its own stupidity, thank goodness.

Quoting:
I don't understand why it came off so easily in the dining area and is being stubborn in the hall.


It's just that sheer cussedness that turns up in every project. You weren't expecting everything to go easily, did you? ;-)

I think for our first hiking trip after the rain stops, we'll go to a place with a pond and see if it has filled up.

The power was off through the night for an unknown amount of time. (Yes, DH did reset the time on the microwave yesterday even though I told him not to bother.)


It is very dark out. I guess I better get this sent out before the next power outage.

Doesn't this sound exciting?
A powerful frontal system will sweep through southwestern California
today and this evening... bringing heavy rain and scattered
thunderstorms. Even after the front moves through the region this
evening... very moist and unstable air will linger... maintaining a
threat of thunderstorms through at least midnight and possibly
through the night.

Some of the thunderstorms may produce small hail... wind gusts over
50 mph and torrential downpours. Atmospheric conditions will be
favorable for isolated weak tornadoes which could either form over
land or move ashore after forming as waterspouts.
