Heads up Amanda!!! This robin is in flight today!!! It is on its way to your house! Have fun ladies.
I look forward to the day she returns home with all your journaling ,I think it is wonderful to learn about everyone and their gardens,family pets ect. I tried to include much of my world in the journal,now lets hear yours.
Please post here when you get the robin and when it is sent back out,and who you sent it to, so we dont loose track of her.
If you take seeds please replace with equally valuable seeds :example: if you take a hard to come by seed please dont replace it with seeds you get 10 for a buck
If you take bulbs or gifts please replace them as well.
Also lets all us delivery comformation so we know it has been delivered.
Thanks for joining I hope you all have a blast!!

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Well I finally decided. I took some bulbs and added some bulbs and I pick out quite a few seeds and added some with an additional 15 or 20 packs of seeds that were not in there. My son wanted the popcicle sticks so we took those and added some goodies. I will ship it out tomorrow and post del conf# . I am repacking in another box because when I got it some of seeds were loose inside and sprinkled out on things. I think it was manhandled at the post office. Any way all is well and I will ship it tomorrow. Thank you, Amy

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Looks like it is on its way to Deb !! Wooo hoooo!!! she's moving along. I am in great anticipation for when it comes back home . This is fun!!

 o
RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

I received the box today, and already went through it! It's all packed up and ready to go to Twila. I'll take it to the post office in the morning. And post the delivery confirmation when I get back from the post office.

I took about 12 packages of seeds, and added about 25.
I mainly took veggie seeds, I'm starting a vegetable garden for the first time! So, the seeds will be well used!
I had fun going through the gifts!
I ended up taking a pair of garden gloves, and some bulbs.
The box is restocked with gifts for the next person!

Thanks Kelley for putting the robin together! You did a really good job!

Twila...Look out for the box!

Ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhh. Can hardly wait! Thanks Twila, I'll be watching!

 o
RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

The Postman left a box today just sitting on my step
It looked like it had traveled far to take a little rest
I looked it over thoughtfully this box that he had left
The sides were bulging out, it was stuffed so very full.
I picked it up so carefully, this treasure I had found
With shaking hands I opened it and with abated breath
Watched a treasure trove of goodies spread across my table top
I knew that I could pick and choose before I sent it on
Inside a wealth of seeds to filled my dreams of summer blooms
A Sunflower tea towel caught my eye I knew I wanted that
It would do until my seeds grew, and turned their faces to the sun

A journal tucked among the seeds reminded me to write
About myself and all the things that so defined my life.
The time had come for me to add some treasures of my own
This would fit if tucked real tight, and things were moved about
I packed and packed and packed again and added somethings new
And finally I could close the top, it only heaved a bit
The sides still bulged but I was sure the postman wouldnt mind
I knew that it would bring such joy as it continued on
To link each one whose hands had shared the treasures in the box
But the best of gifts within the box that stayed at every stop
Were the memories left to grow, of the friendships it had brought

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Just wanted to let you ladies know that I am so sorry, but you need to take me and MargeC out of the round robin! MargeC is my mother if some of you don't know her. She passed away yesterday and so think for now that I'll not play for awhile. I am sorry and hope this doesn't mess up everything for you. We were both really looking forward to it and so sorry. Melinda

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Oh my gosh. Melinda, I'm so sorry. I know you had been taking care of her for some time. My thoughts are with you and your family. Please take your time; may peace find you and memories comfort you.

Melinda,

I'm very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. It sounds like the two of you were very close. I will keep you in my prayers.

Ginger


 o
RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Thanks for the wonderful thoughts and prayers everyone. Yes, she was my garden buddy and my best friend besides my mother! I am devastated and will miss her dearly. She only had one more round of chemo and they said she was doing great. Then she didn't feel as well as she had been but she wasn't concerned. Made her go in to see dr. and we were only in there 5 minutes and she went into cardiac arrest and nothing they could do. It was a sad day! With many more to come. She loved the GW and we were always looking forward to these things and sorry we can't now. Have fun with it ladies. Melinda

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Melinda: I'm so sorry to hear about your mother, you're in my prayers too.

The robin arrived today.
(Looks like it went through a lot, a couple of wonderful smelling candles were broken out of their jars, but I kept one in a similar sized holder and it did just fine.)
Besides the yummy candle, I took out 6 seed packs and an elastic band watch to go running with.
I added 15 seed packs, and a few little suprises all in a clean glass free flat rate box.
It's packed up and ready to make it's way to Ginger tomorrow when I'll post the conf. #.
Thanks for hosting Kelley

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Jess,
I am glad it got there ! I am like a momma ,keeping an ever watching eye on her baby lol
too bad the candles were broke. The postal service is pretty rough with packages. Are there enough gifts in the box now that those were broke? if not let me know ,I will figure something out.
thanks

RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

Hi ladies! The fat Robin was waiting for me last evening when I got home from work, but unfortunately I could not open it until this morning. I really enjoyed reading the journal - neat idea Kelley! I found some seeds I found interesting and added probably 50 + packs. Also, I took a garden marker and wind sock and added a garden tote and a few other miscellaneous items. I have the Robin all packed up to the hilt and since I can't make it to the
P. O. today - I'll drop her off on the way in to work on Monday morning! Thanks so much for coordinating this Kelley - I enjoyed participating and the box will now be on its way to Tina! - Lisa

Mailed out on Friday.

Thanks for letting me play!

 o
RE: UPDATE: Winter blues round robin

This is a great robin, thank you Tina(mmqchdygg) for the ceramic "garden fund" jar.It is sunshine yellow with flowers all around it,just what I needed(How did you know?)it replaced the ugly peanut butter jar that was sitting next to my computer. My two boys that still live at home have to donate $1.00 into the jar every time I do one of their chores, some weeks it adds up really fast. :)
Tina, you are very tallented I will think of you everytime I look at it. I also took out the canvas garden tote(great idea for the absent minded gardener.) I replaced both items and added more seeds to the already huge seed bag. I enjoyed reading the journal and learning a little bit more about everyone, what a brilliant idea that was Kelly.
O.K. now I still have to fill in my part in the Journal and then of it goes to Susie.
I will post again after I get back from the post office Monday morning with the Confirmation#
Kelly, thanks for letting me play, this is a very fun robin. You did a great job!
