Oh dear, i came across a home made carrot cake with cream cheese icing recipe, it looks divine!! think I should make that instead of cheesecake? or should I stick to the cheese cake lol i'm taking off work the friday before the luncheon, My sewing room looks horrid, lots of boxes and a big mess going on in there, not enough shelves and storage either lol
You not enough shelves and storage!!!!!!! I can't imagine!! LOL
Can totally identify!!! Been looking for some stuff tonight - can't remember if I just can't find it or if I don't actually have it anymore!!! Got so many projects going on not sure which one to work on!! I'm finally doing something with some linen guest towels I've had for 12 years!! Looking for some decorative furniture pieces that are older than that but can't find them! I need a 5,000 sq ft warehouse!
lol. It's fun watching your fb page peg! I'm looking forward to this sat, i'm even taking off friday to clean my house and do some alterations piling up and trying to get my sewing room cleaned up, making that chilli fri night and cake friday sometime. !! we'll have a good time even if there isn't too many of us. then sunday, all the plants are going up for the winter.
I'm finishing up,cleaning and putting away from garden club meeting yesterday,dragging out yard props,making repairs so we can get the outside decorated next weekend.Have to help hub's put that fence up to keep new neighbors from tossing their trash over onto my yard and their kids out of my flowerbed,chasing their football. Don't have much left in that bed after last year heat and drought,don't need them stomping down what's left.Rake and level where hub's took out my little pond,sub in at zumba tonight,finish more props...more cupcakes and truffles to do. Ya know,just another day at the zoo.
I had a great time everybody. so glad we all got together, we do know how to have fun!!. Sarah, I meant to tell you that if you want your solor light to work you have to pull the top part off and pull out that tab that's covering the battery, amber's had a tab on hers too. so i didn't want you to think something was wrong with it lol. i put out the other ones today that i had extra of.
thanks for a fun time you all!!. sorry that there were several that missed the fun. Maybe next time!
P, I don't think any of us took a single picture! Too busy eating ;o)
KA, thanks so much for having us. Your home upgrades are spectacular! Of course, the food was delicious! Fun was had by all and we laugh and laugh.
We ate and talked about all of our friends that were unable to join us. We missed all of you! Then outdoors to see (and swipe a few things from) KA's yard. We went back indoors to open prizes. I got an upside down finch feeder, hyacinth bulbs and a very cute butterfly tote! KA gave all of us an embroidered dishtowel...is there anything this girl cannot do?? Then off to Hopes and Dreams to see Dian and buy plants. This will not shock anyone...Charlotte's truck was full when we left!
I am going to host the Christmas luncheon. We all agreed on December 1. I hope all of y'all will be able to join us!
Going to make that cornbread tomorrow! Thanks for the recipe Loretta.
I had an interesting night last night. Richard went outside to smoke about 10 and discovered 2 fish out on the patio! Turned out I had turned the water on to add a little to the pond and totally forgot about it. Three hours later the water got so high the fish were able to just come on over the side! My two biggest fish were out! One in the walkway area and the other over by the chairs. It was quite a challenge picking up huge wiggling fish!! I did have a pair of rubber gloves. They don't seem to be worse for the wear today!
I can guarantee you that nothing is going to be packed away this week!!! Too much going on! I have to do this in stages. I have been trying to gather some things together. It actually takes me a while to find everything! A bunch of my brugs are getting ready to bloom like crazy. I have one in front that has over 30 buds. Several others have somewhere around that many. I've been disappointed in them all summer and now they are finally getting ready to put on a big show! I have several I don't see any signs of buds so I'll cut them back and start getting them ready to go in.
Here is a picture of the inside of my little greenhouse. I put large pond rocks down first and then put river pebbles over that. Made a good solid floor. I had the rack you can see in the back sitting up against my fence and I kept pots on it. It was a side of the street find a few years ago. I already had that round plastic table also. I also have some shelves that came from a green house. I bought them at an auction several years ago and had forgotten about them. I need to get some cinder blocks so I can use them. Don't think I need a lot of shelves but might want to get some things up off the floor.
The baby gators were taken from a guy in a traffic stop by state trooper.He and a buddy had dug them up to sell for money to buy drugs. Trooper called corps of engineer to take the babies so the girl that did our Oct. garden club meeting program brought one to show us.
