Kenny has to work, so he and Jim will not make it...

Holly is home from Vietnam, so I will ask if she would like to join us. And maybe Sandy...we must make that girl a gardener!

OH MY! That carrot cake sounds so good!!

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!

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!

Thanks so much for having us today!

I went over to Home Depot after we got back and got me a big bag of potting mix and the rest of the rocks I need for the greenhouse. I'm going to try and get some of that done tomorrow.

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!

Thank you Kathy Ann for having us over, your place is wonderful as always. It was so nice seeing
everyone and looking forward to the next one.

Here is my recipe for Broccoli Cornbread:
2 boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 sticks (6 oz) melted butter or margarine
1 pkg. (10-12 oz) frozen chopped broccoli thawed and drained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup cottage cheese

Combine all ingredients and pour into greased 9x13 inch
baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned.
Enjoy

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 was moving the Hilo Bold I bought today and somehow the top just snapped right off it. I've never had that happen before. Hope it doesn't cause it to die!

Got all the rock down in my greenhouse. Now I'm ready to start packing things away!

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 other photos are my asters out front.

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.
