Gave myself a gift by repotting a longneck African Violet in the blue pot and potting up one of my babies that had been rooted in water and then placed in small pots. It has a nice new pot now. That cutting was shared by a GG member and I am so sorry to say that right now I cannot bring forth a name. Thanks whoever you are.
Just finished baking my favorite holiday pie, Pumpkin of course. It smells so good in the house. Had a little filling left over and just baked it with the pie. How can that hurt?
Wonder what could be in this package - It says from SANTA :-)
My little tree is growing some gifts the past couple of days. Will be taking them to the grandkids house tomorrow. Along with a Sausage Breakfast Casserole.
Hope all of you have a wonderful holiday, if you are alone, go visit a neighbor and take a plate of homebaked cookies, play lots of music and muse over holidays that were filled with goodness and light.
People did you know South Carolina may get a White Merry Christmas? The gardens could use the moisture in any form. I put in 30 small crocus bulbs that were a gift from my friend J next door. She always shares her goodies.
Have a wonderful Christmas whether it is white or not.
Now this morning the 22nd, there is a whole page of ads. I have notified 'Charkattack' to help with this one. This the worst it has ever been. Sorry there are so many hackers/spammers in the world.
Well GG friends I have just spent about 5 minutes deactivating a number of people using our site for ads. If they are not gone when you view the blogs, they will very soon. We keep trying to keep them off, but it is not easy in this cyber world we live in.
it has been a very long time since I posted a blog on GG. It has been a very busy household in the last couple of months. My Don is moving to a new home where he will be an inpatient in the McCoy Nursing Care Home.
The decision has been long and difficult but I feel he will do very well in the nursing home setting. For one thing he gets bored here with just he and I and loves it when people come in. But that can't happen every day. I also think he will eat better with a regular routine of going to the dining room for meals. He is in the mid/late stages of Alzheimer's Disease and his mobility problems have gotten worse meaning falls are always a possibility. He spends his days either in his bed or the lift recliner. Being able to be in his wheel chair where he can move himself around some will help. Carpet is just not compatible with a wheel chair.
I know this is not the norm for a Garden Guides blog, but so many of you have become 'web friends' and I knew you would want to know what is happening in this stage of our lives. I will be back in the gardens and joining you in planning the spring, which for some of us won't be far away very shortly.
This photo was taken in December of 2008. It will forever be one of my favorites. We have others like this with Don and other members of the family. This is with two of our sons and one grandpup.
