RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Hi ladies
well its been a busy fun day for me & still a few more things to do but before I finish up for the night. But I had to come confess to you ladies .
I made a big mistake , my Brother had brought over this Huge box of Gardening tools , pots , planters ,plant foods, gardening books , of all kind that he had boughten at an auction just for me ,Guess He thinks I love to garden or something :) YA THINK? many of these items are new never used & many were Martha Stewart Bran name on them .
I trully did not look all that closely till this morning when I went to get "the pruners I thought " to get them ready to send out to MISSG as her gift for posting . . well long story short .

These are Companion Flower Shears with the large handles. & well MissG My quesion is would you still like to have them ?? even though they are not Martha Stewarts pruners . I should have looked at the bran before posting but i did not want to go out to the garage at the time of night .
I'm very sorry for the mistake . these can be used for indoor or outdoor plants . & as i say they are New.

pixie ;this was fun & I apoligize for not playing this month but I have to many plants now that I need to get dug up for miss annie :)) plus a couple more debby hope to have yours in the mail monday :)

well missg if you would email me to let me knoww i will try to get them out to you also on monday or let you pick something else just let me know .

Hi All,
My tomato party was a great success! Though I'm so tired. I had to work today. People showed up with a lot more tomatoes than I thought they would. Plus there was so much other food and desserts!! I almost ran out of table space Everyone loved my meat-on-a-stick too.

Gale,
Congrats on the win!

Sassy,
Yes, they do normally multiply. On the lilies I sent you, you can see little babies at the base near the bigger bulb. The funny thing is my Stargazer has never multipied either, weird!

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Hi Girls!

Congrats, MissG!!! Enjoy your shears!!! :O)

Remy & Pixie- I had planned to mail ya'lls boxes on Friday, and had them wrapped and sitting on my desk....and my 2 girls got up earlier than I did, and thought it would be great amusement to tear off the labels and unwrap the boxes! UGH! So I spent half the day trying to put everything back together! :O)

Deb,
The sweetest was 'Sweet Gold' and it won by a lot. I was shocked at how sweet it was. 'Sungold' came in 2nd.

Gale and Pixie,
Everyone brought tomatoes from their garden. Some people brought 1 or 2, some brought a lot. We had 90 tomatoes brought total and of them only 5 were duplicates! We cut the tomatoes into small pieces so everyone could sample, and we had score cards. Plus everyone brought food to eat. So pretty much it was a gorge fest,lol.
There are about 5 people missing from the group photos so it was a pretty good turn out especially for the first time.

Melissa,
Lol! I'm sorry I don't mean too laugh, but it is funny : )

Hi All,
I got my fancy meal coach jackets with my name on them for work today! Gary of course said to me when I got home "you're no chef" picking on me. It is funny though, with the jackets, customers think you are more important.

Melissa,
No! I wasn't disappointed. I'm impressed with your sewing/crafting skills. I'm artsy enough to be good with that kind of thing, but I have the patience of a kid with ADD when it comes to making things, lol.

Susie,
Lucky you getting some garden items at the yard sales! I haven't found anything good for gardening lately.

Its been a busy weekend of work. I have the next 2 days off though!

Pixie,
"the sleeves tied in the back kind" Lol!

Sassy,
Lol! I wish I could wear the apron at work : )
I forgot about the plants!
That second pic of the baby cracks me up it looks like she's Elton John sister.

Anita,
Sorry to hear about the frost warnings out your way. Down in the hills south of here they have been having the warning the past couple of days. I don't want it to get cold!

Susie,
The birdie look so cute all wet from the bath. Do they take to baths and hairdryers easily?

Deb,
Greenbean is adorable. He(or she?) looks like he knows he is posing for a camera! It was sad seeing the news about Alex. I would always be fascinated when I saw him on TV.

Nancy,
Sorry to hear you have frost warnings already too! Your hubby can live without the garage for a night or two : )

Hi Jenell!
I'm glad to hear you are ok.

Kimberly,
I hope the surgery went well.

Have a good night everyone,

Hi Ladies,

Im home, we had a wonderful weekend, never knew that vehicles (4x4's) could do what I saw them do this weekend, it was awesome.

I hope everyone fared well with their plants and pipes if they had frost (guess the pipes would need a freeze not frost sorry). It has finally gotten down to 69 here at night but then I am like Remy, I don't want it to get cold lol hardly does here anyways.

Ok Nancy I have to resend your prize package, it was in the mailbox for me when we got home. Please email me your addy. I thought I had it right from the obf sheets but I was running out of ink at that same time.

Melissa and Carol ya'lls prizes will go out either tomorrow.

Ya'll get set for another game.

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Nancy sent me such great items!

Sorry for the delay in letting everyone know what Nancy sent!

A very pretty Sunflower writing tablet/envelopes
Microfleur flower press (uses your microwave to dry flowers) I do so many crafts, that I'm thrilled to have this Nancy!

2 big Crispy treats for Greenbean (seed bars!)
Greenbean LOVES these!

Lavender grow kit

Kit for "Jar Art" how neat! I have the perfect "Ball" blue canning jar to use! After it's complete you can put potpourri in it (or be creative and put one of those 'fake candles' in it as use it as a night light lamp).

Sunflower kitchen towel set- plus potholder, oven mitt!

Nancy, thank you sooooo much for all the really nice items! I ALWAYS LOVE whatever you send! Your boxes are the best!

Hugs,
Deb

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Hi Ladies,

Such wonderful boxes!!!! I don't have a truck today so have been stuck at home YUCKIE!!!! If I could find the keys to Alans Truck then I would drive it and feel like an Amazon!!! Oh well!

I am ready for cooler weather here too (can't believe I just said that), the humidity has just been at 75% so at least thats helping it feel somewhat cooler here. I love the smells outside during the change of seasons. It will stay pretty warm here up through November though.

Well I hope everyone is having a wonderful Day.

Smiles,
Pixie

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone has a Great night,

The plant is a varigated Spider plant. Will do good indoors for you. They get really pretty. Glad you liked everything. Take care, Amy


 o
RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Amy - thanks for letting me know about the spider plant. I had one of those years ago. This will be my first house plant in awhile. I used to have house plants, but after several cross country moves, I had to give them all away and just had not gotten around to getting more.

Thanks again, I know I will enjoy it...
Sandy

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

I will be traveling until Oct. 1 so if I don't make it back on here before I leave for my trip, see all of you later. (Nothing like the trip to Italy this time, this trip is to visit family - however, that is special, too!)
I did not sign up for a Sept. swap so I am not behind on sending and don't need to receive anything this month. It was probably a good month to sit out... it has been so busy!

Melissa

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Sounds like everyone is getting great packages!

Pixie, I've not forgot you, your box will go out next week-end. I've been off but it has been a busy one. I am guilty of not packing your stuff because to be honest I have been working on packages that are going north, and I want the plants to get settled in before the frost hits us. I've really enjoyed picking stuff out for you and I will send your hostess gift with your other stuff.

A lady that I have taken care of the last two years passed away and I attended the visitation and funeral. We became real good friends, I'm really going to miss her, and it was hard for me to go into her room with out her being there. We are reminded not to get involved but how can you not?

It is warm out again today. Dry, with gusty winds and the temp is 91! Good thing for the winds, other wise it would really be a scorcher out there, and we really need some rain.

Time to get back outside for a while before it is time for me to take a nap before I start my long stretch at work.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

Hi All,
It has been hectic around here. Good news though, the back of the garage finally got new siding put up. I have to paint it myself though. The real bad news, more of my plants got trampled!! Maryanne's Rose of Sharon started to re-sprout, the workers trampled it. Well, we'll see if it and the other things comes back from that abuse!

Annie,
Sorry to hear about the lady you took care of. You're right though, how can you not get involved with people you take care of?

Melissa,
Lol! about the acorn candle. That is too funny. I had no clue she thought she was a squirrel either!

Nancy,
"maybe that means a mild little snow winter?" LOL!

Susie,
I wish I could do your bulb swap. You know how I love bulbs. There is just no way right now.

Have a good night everyone,
Remy

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Pixie & group-

From what I understand, this isn't the only swap that Kim has failed to fulfill her obligations in. I know of at least 2 others that she hasn't sent boxes in as well. But she is hosting the "houseplant" swap and has posted there in the last week, so I honestly don't know what to think.
So sorry for the horrible welcome into the group, Gale!! I hope one bad swap doesn't deter you from joining in others!! :O)

RE: UPDATE: obf fall cleaning swap

Pixie, I'm late with your package as promised! I didn't get your plants dug to get your package out. but I do have a good excuse. (Well I think it is a good excuse :O)) We have been blessed with another new arrival, her name is Natilie Nicole, 7lbs 14 oz, and 20 3/4 inches long; she is a real cutie. However, she has a bad case of cone head because they had to use the vacuum system to help with the delivery. Other than that both are doing fine!

Gale, yes, like Pixie and Susie noted, no-one gets left out. You can expect a little something from myself as well.

Again Pixie, I'm so sorry, and I will get your box to you on Monday.

Ladies, I must get my car cleaned out, but I will try and post later.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

Annie,
Is Natilie a new grandbaby?! : ) Congrats!
When I was born they used the big tongs on me, I was told. I looked so horrible my grandmother started crying because she thought I was going to be brain damaged. Ok, I know I set myself up for some jokes with that comment!

LADIES -

i am so sorry about this month. I have gale's box ready to go and will mail it in the AM. on the way back to the hospital. I thought I was going to get to post last weekend but had to call 911 again for my FIL. DH is staying at the hospital with him tonight so i can get some sleep. hopefully.
Fluid has built up around his lungs and heart since the last surgery.

I need to leave the group for awhile. with things going on here it is just not fair to everyone else. this is the second month in a row my box has been late.
i will miss you all but will hop on hopefully occasionally and say hi.

maybe in a few months things will be better.

Is anyone getting rain? yesterday we got around 3/4 inch, at least that is what was in the rain gauage.
