I'll hit the grocery for the last minute baking stuff I need after work today... I plan to try and get some of my pies made tonight, then finish tomorrow after work. Also I usually get the bird ready the night before then I just have to toss it in the oven Thanksgiving morning. Prep all my veggies and herbs that need cutting up - fun fun fun!

As a kid when we'd go to a buffet my Grandpa would always tell me "Your eyes are bigger than your stomach." I've just realized that as an adult it's changed to "Your eyes are bigger than your garden."

How are the pups Mekos?

How was everyone's holiday? I avoided the bird because I got food poisoning from turkey I cooked earlier due to a broken thermometer. Thankfully my pork loin turned out excellent thanks to my new oven thermometer (Dad bought!)

Puppies were 1 week old so I figure a picture each week will be good to show how they grow off. Glad you all liked them. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and weekend!
Turning off COLD here this week. In the 20's and LOW 30's at night. Rain today or tonight and it sure eels like snow weather in my joints! But only suppose to be rain. (Drat!) It's rotten to FEEL it and not GET it.

Cold cold night for the desert... Freeze Warning - probably our first and only for the season... Came about the same time last year and it's weird this early...

http://forecast.weather.gov/showsigwx.php?warnzone=AZZ023&wa...

Covered the Jalapeno and Chiltepins as they are full of little peppers... harvested all the bigger peppers and eggplant and will hope for the best. Brugs and sweet potato vines and coleus on the back (south) patio. I am so not into high maintenance plants - lol. Will likely lose my tomatoes but they are on their own... It's been windy and cold all day and is only about 42 right now. I'm going to bed to snuggle with the blankies and my Yankee since he is wearing his fur coat. I'll check in in the am if my fingers aren't too cold to type - lol... I'm such a wuss - grew up where it gets 40 below and I'm cold;o)

LOL, yes Nettie, you bundle up and keep warm. Don't want you freezing out there. Suppose to be in the 20's here tomorrow night.
My cousin who is also best friend and praying partner, her son,(18 years old) had a bad wreck last night totaling her car in that storm we were having. He is ok thank God. He hit a tree and lodged it between two other pine trees and it is a miracle he got out of the mangled mess at all but only got a knot on his elbo. We had some bad storms last night and this morning. Seems to be passing on now.
Loca, hope all the vegies make it through the cold for you.
Al, lots of the garden friends named the puppies for fun and they got some strange names...
Lefty, Kaluah, Chiquita, Taco, chico. Of course the final owners will choose the final names for them. Since we are keeping the two light colored ones we are naming those Sugar and Spice. The blonde one is Sugar and the other is cinnamon colored with chocolate markings and named Spice.
Charleen(RRM) is gonna take the only boy and she has named him Kaluah. He looks JUST like his daddy, Gizmo.
You guys have a wonderful day. Back later.

My project for the day, besides cutting back the cannas and fried MG vines was to place some of the flagstone I got as a border on a front bed... Don't mind the weeds in the front - lol... There is also tons of wild Oxalis that grows there, but I leave it as the yellow flowers are cute and it makes a nice groundcover in the summer to hold in moisture. If it gets to aggressive I yank it out;o)

Happy birthday mittsy. Hope it is a good one!

Hi Nettie and all. My cousin Dot (also my best friend and prayer partner) came home from hospital today. Thanks for the prayers. Cousin Wesley is still not well. He went on hospice and has good days and bad, so I just do what I can and keep him company. We had the early Christmas for him and he was so happy. It was really nice. Thanks for those prayers also. He is terminal and his days are numbered but I want them to be as good as I can make it for him. It is so cold here. Nights are in the teens and days in the low 30's. Brrrrrr.
Puppies are growing and getting personalities. Kaluah is growling at the others and trying to fight with them. He barks in his sleep. He is a mess.
Going to rest up, I'm so tired. Good night everyone! HUGS.

We were missed by two really big storms last week that hit Buffalo and Rochester to our north. Some motorists were stranded on the NY Thruway for 10-12 hours last week near Niagra area. We're right between Lake Erie on the west, Lake Ontario to the north and Atlantic coast to the east. Sometimes when the wind is just right it forms a circle between the three waters and we get hammered with lake effect snow. It can dump up to three feet at a time. So far hasn't been too bad in our area for this time of year.

Nettie, my flower in the greenhouse is blooming. I waited a year to see it and it waits till I stick it in the packed out greenhouse and decides to bloom. Go figure. Bulbine frutescens, the pot is full of blooms and I can't even get to it for a picture so you have to look at the parents of the plant from last year. Put my oxalis in the greenhouse and it made the biggest blooms I ever saw. They were small during the summer but now they are like big white bells.
What is the deal with the greenhouse and my blooms?

My garden is going to be full of roses, iris and daylilies. With some other stuff thrown in. Just wait until I get it all put together after the new trailer gets set on the property next late spring. We've decided to do it after I come back from Calif in early June.

I had 32 roses in my small backyard at our old house. I left them there and haven't tried to move them here as I don't have a rose garden set up yet. There were several that I really liked and one that smelled sooooo good, but can't remember it's name. A couple of my favorites that I remember are Vodoo, Casa Blanca, Fragrent Cloud, Kings Gold, Joseph's Coat. Can't wait to get my rose garden set up. The lady of the couple who rented the house was real excited about them. I went over in the spring and showed her how to prune them. Didn't have the heart to go look at them this summer in case she wasn't taking care of them.

Our Little Nettie is amazing! Crit, Charley would love BABE. You know his mom was a horse, He loves horses.
You know horses sometimes don't care for mule?? But Charley loves horses, when the neigbors are truckin their horses in and out he brays. Most pitiful thing you ever heard. He is a beautiful animal.
Went and got them some hay today. They couldn't hardly control theirselves. I had to chase them out far enough so BIL could get trailer under carport and he almost got stuck. I told him to come from other side, had to run off longears again, so he finally got it in. Soft today, must be a little warmer. Yep, 34 degrees is warmer today than yesterday. I'm so glad.
Marti, we wouldn't take your plants, just a few cuttings. ☺☺☺

I told Dad it didn't look as friendly as Joey but Dad started baby talking to it and it not only growled but bit the window!! Dad totally jumped back and I nearly wet my pants laughing.

I parked next to a van with it's windows part way down with a Yorkie in it and it was just barking like crazy at me. As I was walking by I was telling it that I wasn't going to touch its car. "Thats your car and you just keep protecting it. I won't touch it! OK!" Anyway I looked around and there stood the owner of the van. She was smilling at me. She said, "I wish he won't bark at everyone." I told her at least in my opinion, he was only doing his job. Letting people know that he was there to protect his property. She started laughing and said Thank You!!

Joey rarely barks in the car and would be too busy trying to get out of the truck so you could pet him. He just really loves people. He gets along well with most of the neighborhood cats and dogs, but he's quite aggressive with certain dogs especially the large ones.

Oh and interestingly, he is starting to warm up to the neighbors big white dog. I think he senses than he's an elderly dog now.

They said our weather was suppose to warm up a bit after this week. So I doubt if we will get snow this year. Almanac says it suppose to be warmer than normal this year and our weather reporters said a few nights ago that for the most part it will be warmer so after this cold spell passes so does our chances for snow. It will still be cold but it says we will have a dryer winter than normal too. I'm disappointed. I think we got an acumulation of 3-4 inches last year 1 time and it left as fast as it arrived. Couldn't even make a snowman. Got 2-3 inches the year before maybe twice that year. BUT we use to when I was younger. I remember 18 inches one year and 6-8 inches about 10 years before that and lots of snow before that. It just gets less every year since. I need a winter home in another state so I can go see snow. DH likes the idea of going to Alaska.

Crit have you tried using those little black plastic pull ties? I know how they get them off, they love to roll in the dirt cause my long ears do it all the time. Their halters are so dirty. But It beats letting them getting out with no halters and ropes hanging everywhere.I used to let them run around without halters but after they got out once or twice. I leave them on.

I haven't tried yet, but that is what I meant by wire ties. I take the halters off in the winter, but usually leave them on during the summer so I can put the tags on them. I got rid of my tag gun when I sold my cattle, so can't put them on right.
