RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Your idea for this swap is fantastic, but I won't be playing - just need a little breather and have some things lingering that need to be completed before I start on too many new things.
Happy New Year to all and may your hopes and dreams come true!

Melissa, I had planned to sit out for awhile, but I like your idea. Count me in.

Merry Christmas to all of my OBF colleagues.

I plan to send out early as hubs and I will be gone for a 2 1/2 week trip from middle to end of this month.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Glad to have you, Ladies! :)

We had a good Christmas...except for the baby being sick. Several of my kiddos & I had the flu last week, and we thought we were over it because no one had gotten sick for a few days. But the youngest got a fever on Saturday and was sick all day yesterday. Bless her heart- she TRIED to play & enjoy everything...but she just couldn't. She's feeling better today, so we're taking a day off from homeschooling to let everyone play (and clean house! lol!).

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Yuck, Vina! This is nasty stuff going around...Bliss is still trying to shake it. Plus she's teething, so that makes her especially miserable, poor baby!! Everyone here still has sniffles & sore throats..those just seem to linger forever! UGH.
Hope you & your young'uns are feeling better soon!
Glad to have you in the swap, too! :)

There is still a week left to sign up, so hopefully we'll hear from some of our other members by then. I know it's been a really busy time the past few months, so maybe things will settle down enough that we'll see more participation in the next few months.

Just checking in!
Hope everyone has had a great week. Today is Lili's 3rd birthday...WOW! :) Kinda not going great so far. We can't get out to get her cake because the van won't start (again!!), so she's sad. I'd bake one if I could, but today is my grocery shopping day as well, so I don't have flour! BUT, we'll still have a party. One way or the other!


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Lili......so sorry about the cake punkin.

Wow where is everyone? I'm off this week so its been busy.
We had a bedroom with hardwood flooring that I just never liked so we tore it out and put down Hickory pre-finished flooring. It looks so good but I do hate re-modeling. The furniture from the bedroom is everywhere. Our Son is coming tomorrow to help finish it so hopefully we can get the house back in order.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Hello everyone and Happy New Year. Hope everyone had a great christmas/hanukah. it's nothing like having a little one to really enjoy the magic of the season. i love seeing it through a toddler's eyes. now we will get ready for the new year. can't believe another year has come and gone, boy that went fast.

Bunny, hope you found something to improvize. i remember years ago my friend's mom making a stack of pancakes, smothered them in butter that it oozed out the sides like icing and then drizzled syrup,put candles on it and everything. she never really made her cakes because of some food/grain allergy, but would take other food items and make them look like cake, like form a meatloaf and then cover it with mashed potatoes as the icing and decorate with peas and carrots.

shirley, i feel you - i need to rip out carpeting and have the floors refinished, but the thought of where everything is supposed to go while it's being done scares me.

count me in for this month. i was sorry to miss last month's.

mary ellen, do you have a grand yet? boy/girl? etc....

we can't shake the sniffles, coughs and colds around here. once it passes through, clears up, it comes back. this time around i have that burning dry cough...not a fan of this type.

my dear friend who has battled cancer for the last 5 years just passed away. we are doing our best to get her pets placed in loving homes, please send up a good thought that it happens. i am not a fan of the alternative(s).

weather has been fairly decent, i am hoping it stays this way, i would like to have some time to get outside and do some winter clean up but i keep thinking before you know it, spring will be here and i'll have to do spring clean up, so why repeat? !!!!!

well, i'll be back to check partners, in the meantime, a very happy, healthy and promising new year!

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Maryanne-So glad you are joining in this month. We need to start the year off right. LOL I do not know where 2011 went either..I agree it went fast. My Mom took her carpet up and re-finished the hardwood floors and they turned out great. You can't beat the hardwood floors. (I have to be a good salesman for hardwood floors since I work there right)?

Does anyone on here check out the pinterest sight? Oh my goodness its addictive. I saw the cutest saying and hope to get it framed or something for my grandkids. It says - I'm not bossy I just know what you should be doing -. This is totally both my grandkids. Lots of good recipes, craft ideas and such on the sight. In fact I found a breakfast casserole I am going to try this morning...sounds delicious.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

I stopped in to wish everyone a Happy New Year --- and a fun and safe New Year's Eve. We don't do much for the New Year. I always do way too much for Christmas so it kind of balances out. I am hoping we can go out to eat tomorrow, but I am not sure if restaurants tend to close for New Year's Day or not, so we will see... I will go grocery shopping later today just in case we need a back up plan.
Are any of you making New Year's resolutions? I have some very ambitious ones planned so we will see how that goes. I normally list just 2 or 3 things that I don't acheive, but I am going all out this next year.
Hooray for those getting things done to update their houses. I really need to get some updating here at my house and that is not even on my list of resolutions - but hopefully at least one thing will get done to the house.
We've been busy lately with my horse. She is 32 and has had a rough week. Things are beginning to look better for her though.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Glad to have y'all join us, Annie & Maryanne! :)

Yesterday was exciting, to say the least! We finally got the van to run- just long enough to get out & find a cake. it quit again as we were pulling in the drive. Thank goodness for small miracles! :)
And thank goodness for BIG miracles, too! My 4 yr old nephew was electrocuted yesterday, but he should be fine. He was playing hide n seek & decided to hide behind an electric dryer. Somehow, he got electrocuted, and his big brother did as well, when he was trying to pull him out. Big brother is OK, just shook up. The little one has 3rd degree burns, but should be OK otherwise.
He definitely had someone watching over him!

It's been such a rough week, that we aren't doing anything for New Years. Just sitting at home with the kiddos and watching a few movies.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! Stay safe!!

Margaret!!!!!! Hello! So WONderful to have you back with us again. You have been missed. So have you, Maryanne! And Remy! And...

Yes, Maryanne, we are grandparents as of September 2 of this year. We have a grandDAUGHTER! Of course, she is just perfect. Her name is Evelyn Mae and is called Evie as in E V. I was with them when she was born and have seen her about 6 times now since then. They live about 5 hours away in St. Cloud, MN. She is a big smiler and giggler and just rolled over for the first time the other day. Having a granddaughter yourself, you know how a gma can go on and on, right?

We had a nice Christmas with all of my family together at the parent's home. New Year's was spent with Jim's family in MO. We just got back earlier this evening.

The weather here has been extremely mild. It was NOT a white Christmas. It has snowed very little and not stayed on the ground for long. Quite unusual!

Happy Birthday to Lili! I remember when she was born.

Happy New Year everyone.

Hi Margaret...welcome back.

Hi Remy..wish you were joining us. Miss you lots.

It is snowing here as I type. Not sure how much we will get but it is so colddddddddddd outside.

I have started getting seed and bulb catalogs and I've been looking to see what's new this year. Eden Brothers has some really good deals. I really like calla lilies and they have four that I am going to order. Then Pacific Callas has a bigger variety so decisions decisions.

Shirley

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Shirley, I would LOVE to have snow right now! We've just got the bitter cold and nothing to show for it. It was 15 degrees outside this morning. Brrrrr! Last week, we had 60's, which they are saying we will have again this weekend. Crazy doggone weather! Wish it would just do one or the other & stay that way! LoL!

I am hoping that I get to do more in the yard this summer. But I probably won't, with the new baby.
Last summer didn't work out well either, and the yard was *really* neglected! I lost most of my flowers from the extreme heat & flooding. I'm kinda anxious to see what pops up (if anything!) this spring. I did notice some daffs already popping their heads up, which is WAY too early! I'm afraid I"m gonna lose them before March!
I may just give up and put in a rock garden! :P At least I don't have to worry about too much water or heat with those! LoL!


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Melissa - We only got maybe a half inch of snow but quite slick this morning, 17 degrees and very cold all day. This week end will be back in the 60's as well.
Just think of all those gardeners able to help you one day. LOL

Received a Van Bourgondien catalog..got to check it out.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Some will have read this on other GardenWeb boards, but my horse passed away the night of the 3rd. It is very sad. I know she lived a long and healthy life, but we still hate to see our pets leave us. Even after 29 years (and maybe especially after 29 years), I did not want to see her go.
I hope everyone has a good time with this swap. I am hostess for 2 other GardenWeb Swaps this month so that's about all I can handle for January. I'll go up to see my younger daughter for her birthday later this month. Then the triplets turn one year old in February. Hard to believe!

Jeanne


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Hope everyone had a great New Year! We are all recovered from the cold front that swept through the house over Christmas break. That was nasty!

We didn't do much for New Years either. Got chinese food and watched movies. P A R T Y !

Remy, so glad you could stop in. Happy NEW Year!

Jeanne, I'm so sorry about your loss! My Boogie is getting up there in age as well. He's 25. He has a cancerous tumor on his throat that he has had for years now. The vet says that thing is what will finally kill him. They could never remove it because it is up under the throat latch and wrapped around the jugular. Nice place for a tumor! The vet keeps telling me "it could rupture at any time"...he has been saying that for about 10 years now. I will be very sad when he finally does go, even though people have been preparing me for it for years now. I guess your never really ready to let go. Your in my prayers.

On a much happier note! PARTNERS!!! :0)

I get to send to Margaret! :) I'll be scoping out some things this weekend.

Have a super Friday everyone!

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Jeanne, so sorry to hear about your loss. Our animals are such a big part of our family and it is so hard to lose them.

I will be planning my box for Shirley this weekend as I am off til Tuesday. Should give me plenty of time to get a plan. I might even get it in the mail by midweek. I am doing three swaps and I think all three have the same deadline so early is good.

Have good weekend everybody. Margo

Jeanne-So sorry to hear about your horse. It is so hard to lose any animal. I cannot believe the triplets will be one next month. Wow...time flies.

Yeah Vina I'm sending to you. Need to really think about the Hope or Dream for the garden. The seeds should be easy.

I can take August. I should be free from commitments. The scary part is it will be here before I know it.

Wonderful day here not doing much. I have been off for three days after a busy Christmas season at the gift shop where I work. I have spent those days doing those little tasks you tend to put off such as mailing off the hair my daughter donated to Wigs for Kids. She had it cut off over a year ago! Tomorrow will be big cleaning day.

Good week all. Margo

Didn't get all my tasks done but did run all the necessary errands I had today. Couldn't sleep last night so think I need a nap and then will get my swap started so I can mail it this week.

Hello, Lovely Ladies-I should be able to take December so that will complete the Hostess's for 2012. I can't believe it. Seems 2011 just started! It was in the 50's here today & the same for tomorrow-then the cold air comes. We usually have 13 inches of snow by now (southeast Iowa) but have had a little over an inch so far! Seems winter is so different all over the country.

Annie-I received your email & will start gathering up for you soon. I am really looking forward to this exchange as I have been unable to participate for some time. I am enjoying reading the update on all of you.

Have a wonderful week, All. Blessings, Margaret

If you wish to include a SMALL something else to go along with your wish (a bookmark, candy, etc), that's fine. But absolutely NOT required.
Your goodies should fit in a bubble envie & be able to go first class.

Thanks to one and all. Very exciting to see what each one comes up with each month.

Margaret - We missed you while you were away.

Just heard on inside edition Dolly Parton is doing a Movie called Joyful Noise....I can't believe she's 66 years old.

Shirley


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Hello everyone and happy new year. May this new year be filled with many triumphs and blessings.

Jeanne, so very sorry to hear of your horse - pets....no matter what the shape, size or type, they bring such comfort and joy. i also can't believe your grands are a year old.

margaret, how wonderful to see you...think of you often, hope everything is well in your neck of the woods.

shirley, dolly looks fantastic at 66. i love her, but she needs to leave the botox alone!

who was working on the updated questionnaires? it's been a while, so i can't remember. did we ever get them?

margo, thrilled to send to you, don't think i've ever had you as a partner. i'll have to check the old Q's to see if i have one from you, if not, i'll ask for your address, but i'll wait and see when i get home. also, how up to date is your page?

can't believe this is 2012. i just figured out how old i'll be this year....i'm now sick to my stomach. what happened to time?

got a paper cut about a month ago and believe it or not, my thumb blew up like mad, got infected and now i am loosing the tumb nail. it's tough when you can't use yuor thumb....don't realize how much you need it until you can't use it.

well, i'm at work, took a little break because work bores the life out of me, but i better get back.

Maryanne


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Joyful Noise looks cute if you are a Dolly and Queen Latifa fan but I doubt it will get much in the line of a good rating judging from the previews. I do want to see it though. Have you seen Dolly in the previews? Not sure if she is made up to look so plastic but if not, she ought to get another plastic surgeon or better yet, just age gracefully.

Maryann, my questionnaire is pretty accurate and the address is correct. If you don't have the info anymore, let me know and I will get you my address. I don't think we have ever done any swaps together so it's nice to have you sending to me. I find it is such a great way to get to know others.

Just finished working two days and have another four off. Time to get more projects done. I didn't too as much as I wanted for this swap so will be finishing up and mailing.

Margo

P.S. Just to let you all know, I received an order from the following website and was totally pleased. You get Ferry Morse seed half off. I ordered and got the order two days later. I found baby bottle gourds for .89 cents a pack. I also ordered something called pumpkin on a stick. Check it out. http://www.goestores.com/home.aspx?Merchant=PremierStarCompany


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

I agree Dolly looks wayyyyy too fake. I have seen her in person and I think she would have aged beautifully without all that surgery or botox.

Maryanne - I know someone volunteered to update the questionnaires but forgot who it was. Sorry to hear about your thumb, and just over a paper cut. I have heard of strange things like that before.

Off to bed...so sleepy.

Maryanne~ Take care of yourself & get that thumb well so you can keep in touch with us. :)

My grandpa was in love with Dolly. He passed away in '83, so I can't say what he'd think of her now! LoL! But he had a Dolly doll that he loved (barbie type doll) and grandma still has it somewhere...I think it's hidden away in a dark, rarely used drawer. Grandma never did like Dolly. :P

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Thanks everyone. I did have a very nice day.

I may have gotten an unexpected gift. My husband was at Panera with his buddies this morning for their usual bs morning meeting and some lady came in with a box she found down in a walkway. It had this small (about 6 week old) kitten in a high box and they had written "please take me home" on the inside of the box. My husband called me and we decided to take her in. He does have one friend that is going to talk to his wife about taking her but most of me hopes they don't. She is so loving and sweet. Goes from me to my husband back and forth and crawls all over our shoulders loving us and purring. Sometimes she falls asleep there as well. This is the tenth kitten we have either found a home for or taken in since we moved out to the country five years ago. Therefore we named her Tenny.

Shirley, got my swap ready for you and plan to take it to the post office tomorrow. Expecting some snow but it should be ok for travel.

Good night all. Margo


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

My package went out today and I opted to do DC but don't have the number handy. The new kitten is asleep on my shoulder so I don't want to get up right now.

Will post it tomorrow.

Margo


 o
RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Just got home from eating at the best BBQ place. It is called Oinkers and we go to the next town just to eat there.

Shirley, they sure no how to do barbecue down in the Carolina's. My son has taken us to a couple places when we have been down in Irmo, SC and it was fantastic.

I am looking forward to our next trip down there.

Margo - If you are ever traveling through Clayton, Georgia ask where Oinkers is and anyone can tell you.....Oinkers was actually featured in Southern Living Magazine some years back.

Maryanne how is your finger?

Four or five years ago, my husband and I were driving across the country and enjoyed quite a bit of mighty fine BBQ in South Carolina and Georgia. DELICIOUS!!!! I have yet to find a place out here that makes it as good! No restaurant out here is even a close second.

BUNNY, your package should be going out on Wednesday!

Happy Sunday!!

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Annie - They do have some good BBQ places here in the South. I work with a lady who travels with her husband on week-ends and they compete in cooking competitions..just BBQ.

Vina - Your package will be going out on Wednesday, hopefully, I ordered something and it should be here Tuesday.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

We lost our computer to a virus yesterday- wiped out the entire hard drive! We had 2 security programs running, and this thing still got through. Extremely frustrating! Hubby lost much of his work data, and we also lost some of our homeschooling things, plus some home records...just a bit of everything, really! Except pictures. I have those on my phone & some on facebook, so that's good.

If I miss a few days of posting, the computer issue is why. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. Hopefully, we'll get something figured out quickly.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

BBQ, i could live on it. My recent trip to NC yielded some delicious bbq. I'll have to keep the GA restaurant in mind. i want to travel with shirley's co-worker!!!!

shirley, it's taking a long time for this thumb to heal. i will eventually loose the nail, i can see it happening, but i think i need to get back to the doctor for another check up, i just lost all the skin up to my knuckle. not sure if because it was bandaged for so long. you really need your thumb for pretty much everything.

ATTENTION MARGO: i looked and looked and i do not see a qustionnaire from you. would you mind terribly sending me your copy at my GW name at verizon dot net. thanks!

a commercial has been coming on all night about missing children of color, how they are not as in the news as others. what an outrage. a missing child of any race is still a missing child. how despicable.

it sure got cold real sudden. my heat is cranking. i've again been dreaming of moving and just have no clue where - my son says wyoming, alaska or montana. i think he's nuts. i've been on this web site that advertises old historic houses and my goodness gracious, i want one of them ~~ alabama, georgia, missouri, indiana. some of them are old plantation homes that have been rehabbed, some haven't yet. some so reasonably priced, i couldn't touch anything like it in this area for the price.

melissa, sorry to hear about the computer, i feel your pain. it's happened - lost everything. now i save everything to one of those sticks. if i ever lose these sticks, i'm in the crapper for sure.

my granddaughter told me last night if i really want her to stay in bed and fall asleep, she needs me to buy her a temperpedic mattress. i think when i was 5, i wanted bubbles or a jump rope or something simple!!!!!

well, time to get ready to start another work week (yuck) although i am thankful i have a job.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Maryanne, information is on the way.

The kitten we found is doing well. All she really enjoys doing is cuddling on mine or my husbands shoulder. She is so low keyed and we don't have to be constantly watching her like the last kitten we found in the field next to us. My husband even made a comment that she is the kind of kitten you would like as an indoor cat. Shhhhhh, that is exactly what I want little Tenny to be. I will let her work her magic with him.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Maryanne-Going for another check up sounds like a good idea. If you are seriously considering moving and those states are your choice--at least pick Georgia so I can come and visit you. It is definetely a buyers market right now. Smart 5 year-old I say. LOL

The Pastor confirmed yesterday the lady I work with will be at our Church this Saturday cooking her famous BBQ...I WILL BE THERE...YUM

I did send Maryanne's package out on Tuesday.

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Hi everyone. Hi Rose, I see you now :-)

My girl went home on Top Chef Texas tonight. I don't think it should have been her, but I'm not a judge. She had such class too, never any drama, very diplomatic. Nice, all the way around and a great cook.

Margo, I got your Q, thanks. I hope to get my package out this weekend, i have some stuff that needs to get to the PO, so I'd rather make one trip. Just trying to decide what to send.

My thumb just won't heal, and my cold and sore throat just won't go away. Medications aren't working either. I'm back to all my homeopathic remedies, so we'll see what happens.

I made so many cupcakes today for a party tomorrow that i am cupcaked out. i made a lot of varieties - it didn't seem like much on paper, but oh my goodness, they just kept coming out of the oven!!!!!! i had to wonder how those cupcake war people do it under the clock. i made plain chocolate and yellow; a chocolate mint with a crushed candy cane icing; a pineapple right side up with a maple buttercream; peanut butter - that i baked a peanut butter truffle inside them -- i need to work on this or cut out the baking time by a few minutes, but they are tasty nonetheless, carrot, gingerbread with a brown sugar and cinnamon icing and a couple others...my kitchen and dining room were loaded down with trays.

MaryEllen, i'll let you know when the package gets here. i'm always reading my chicken book you sent me several years back. still dreaming....until i move to where they let me have them.

I was the "mystery reader" at my grandbabe's class today. It was so much fun to do that. i took two books with me, the "slurpy burpy bear" and"give a cat a cupcake" (i took mini cupcakes they could eat while i read). such a fun experience. i get to share so much of her life, i'm so thankful for that everyday.

Be well everyone, stay warm!
Maryanne

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Maryanne, have you tried lavender oil? You can use it on your thumb (diluted with almond or olive oil) and you can also use it as a gargle for a sore throat. It works better than antibiotics for clearing up or preventing strep throat, so maybe it could help your cold & sore throat?
I also used it to help heal up an infected sore that my daughter had a few months ago. I'm sure you've heard of using it, but thought I'd check. :) Hope you get to feeling better quick!!

Hello, Lovely Ladies-I just returned from mailing Annie's package-Confirmation #0311 0820 0001 0691 2244. Hope you like it, Annie.

It is quite cold here today & snow forcast but mostly north of us. I am thinking of doing some Winter Sowing this year. Have any of you here started? I was successful last time I did but that was some time ago.

Maryanne-How's that thumb? How aggervating(sp) things like that can be. I know what a joy grandchildren are & now I have great grandchildren which are such a blessing. Those cupcakes sound yummy & I know they were enjoyed.

Thanks, Melissa for hosting this swap. I loved the simplitity of it & know all appreciiated that after the holidays. Sorry about the computer. I know I have quite a time when mine is down. Good to see you are still home schooling. I don't know how you do it all!

It's great to hear about what is going on in each of your lives & I hope to able to continue joining the swaps.

Have a wonderful weekend. Blessings, Margaret

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Hi everyone.

I rec'd my package from MaryEllen, a great assortment of seeds to get me on my way and the neatest card that when you squeeze it together it becomes a snow globe. never saw anything like it, it's so cool.

I missed the deadline and I apologize, but my package was ready to go this morning and then snow got in the way. I did put it out for the mailman to pick up when he dropped off mail today, so that was certainly a plus!

My granddaughter was to start theatre classes today, but that got cancelled because of the snow. looks pretty, but now it's all icy. within the next few days, it should be in the 50's. go figure.

thumb is coming along, it's all the skin loss - like the infection ate away the surrounding skin.

cupcakes all went over well, thank goodness. today i made a pound cake and a pumpkin pie. the cake is for a visit with my elderly aunts tomorrow and the pie, well, my son will eat that in one sitting.

enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone.

Sorry I haven't been posting much!

Feeling much better now, though I still have the sore throat, cough & sniffles. Gotta get back into the routine...the kids have missed too many days of school (they've been sick, too!), so I've got to get my assignment book out & get strict.

Hello, Lovely Ladies. I received my package from Vina yesterday with seeds from her own flowers (I can't wait to plant them) & the cutest "GROWUMS" Salad Garden set, also wonderful socks, a large metal butterfly, the best Godiva Truffels &"The Ultimate Perennials for Sun & Shade book from Garden Gate. I will spend much time reading & wishing these long evenings. Thanks so much, Vina, You made my day!

I am so sorry you have been ill, Melissa. There is so much of it going around here. I just talked to my sister & she said they admitted my niece Sunday. She works at the hospital & went to the ER after work & they admitted her. She says the hospital is full which is unusual with health care being what it is now. I pray the rest of your family doesn't get it.

Blessings to all! Margaret

Margaret, I'm so glad it made it to you. I was a little worried that the chocolate would be smooshed by the time you opened it. But, even smooshed chocolate is yummy! :) And I thought the Groumms were so cute. I bought some for you and me and for another swap, lol!

I also received my Hopes and Dreams today from Shirley!!
In my awesome box were 3 of the CUTEST!!! turtles you ever did see. I'm pretty sure they are not going to make it outside, they are already sitting in my bay window...looking perfect! :)

A recipe for Cinnamon Roll CAKE! DROOL! I love cinnamon buns, and this cake recipe is right up my alley. The only problem is I'm going to wait till Saturday to make, if I can wait that long, lol!

And not to mention all the wonderful seeds!
Jobs Tears
Columbine: Rocky Mountain
Columbine: Yellow Queen
Tomato: Dolly Parton (I really need to grow these! The name is too cute! )
Yellow Hollyhocks
Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate (I grew this last year and it flowered right up till frost, so I got no seeds. THANK YOU!)
Cabbage: Golden Acres
Tomato: Cherokee Purple
Blackberry Lily

Shirley, thank you so much for such a thoughtful package.

I really need to go and update my want list. Shirley just filled a bunch of them! :) THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

Bunny, hope your feeling better! I have had an on again off again ear/sinus infection for the past 3 months. I think it has a lot to do with the crazy weather we have been having. I'm so sick of antibiotics, especially the ones I've been on. They make your mouth taste awful! It last for more than 5-10 minutes after you take the darn things...GROSS!

Talk to you later!

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

I know what you mean, Vina & Margaret! This stuff just keeps going around...this is the 2nd time in 2 months that we've had it. It lasted so long the last time, we'd just been rid of it for about 3 weeks before this one hit. At least the kids haven't had it as bad this time around, they've only got the sniffles.
I think being pregnant just makes everything hit harder, and it takes longer to recover, too. Growing a baby & getting over the flu at the same time is tough!! :P
At least there's only 5 more weeks to go! Yay!

Everyone is receiving great packages! And Cinnamon Roll Cake?! Yummy! Ya'll are gonna have to share that recipe! :D

Vina - Glad you liked your package. I ordered your turtles and then ordered me a set. Turtles are so cute. The Dolly Parton tomatoes look just like a womans boob....honestly. And the taste is excellent. Steve (My Son) was here one week-end when DH was picking the tomatoes and he said good grief Dad these look just like a womans boob. Too funny.

Melissa....Just for you
Cinnamon Roll Cake

Cake::::::::::
3 C flour
1/4 t salt
1 C sugar
4 t baking powder
2 eggs
2 t vanilla
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 C butter, melted

Cinnamon Filling:::::::::::
1 C butter, softened
1 C brown sugar
2 T flour
1 T cinnamon

Glaze::::::::::::::::
2 C powdered sugar
5 T milk
1 t vanilla

In large mixing bowl add 3 C flour, 1/4 t salt, 1 C sugar, 4 t baking powder, 2 eggs and 2 t vanilla. Pour the 1 1/2 C milk over the other ingredients and mix well. While the mixer is still running slowly add the 1/2 C melted butter. Mix just until combined.
Spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray and spread the batter out evenly in the pan.
To make the cinnamon filling use a small bowl and a wooden
spoon to combine 1 C softened butter, 1 C brown sugar, 2 T flour and 1 T cinnamon.
Drop the cinnamon filling by spoonfuls onto the cake batter.
Take a butter knife and drag it through both the cinnamon and cake batter layers, making a pretty marble effect.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 min. or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
In a small mixing bowl whisk together 2 C powdered sugar, 5 T milk and 1 t vanilla, Pour the glaze over the warm cinnamon cake.

Enjoy!

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

That cake sounds delicious, Shirley! Thank you for sharing the recipe! I know what I'm making this weekend. :) I would today, but I'm out of butter. Dang!!

I'll confess...I had to wipe some spit off the screen after reading about the boobie maters. LoL! Not sure how I'd feel cutting into one of those! :P

RE: new: obf *january* new year's hopes & dreams

Shirley,

Thanks for posting the recipe. This one sounds VERY GOOD!!!
In my opinion, nothing is better than Cinnamon in bread, coffee cake, rolls or buns!!

And Dolly Parton Tomatoes...I mean Boobs. I have never grown this one but maybe it is time. I think my garden need some others boobs besides mine!! I have already started all my tomatoes. I better get some "Boob" seeds!

Thanks Melissa Bunny for a wonderful swap!
