Oh, Maggie, I'm so sorry about the death of your daughter. No one expects to outlive their children and it is so hard.

We had sunshine yesterday afternoon and it was supposed to be nice until the rain came again on Sunday but its all clouded up again and more rain is expected to start this evening and last for days again. Only 63 degrees, too.

Jean, with the sequestration going on it's having a bad effect here so we hardly noticed the holiday and all the banks being closed. Some are in their 3rd week of no paycheck and no work. I have a younger friend whose husband is a NASA scientist and he is driving here bonkers.

Maggie, I'm glad you got such a great deal on the MH for I know how much you and will enjoy camping. I'd be afraid to leave Cecil outside around here for I'd probably come home to no cat or a dead cat from the wild animals. The washer and dryer are so cute!

Have a blessed day!

Good Morning, Flowers! It's another cool windy morning in my neighborhood. The sun is supposed to shine this afternoon and warm us up to 55. I'm just not ready for colder weather but it's on it's way ready or not. I was looking for something in my vanity drawer this morning and decided it was way past time to clean the three drawers out of the excess "stuff" that didn't belong in them. I'm embarrassed to tell how many old toothbrushes I found, and pitched. I get a new one from the dentist every six months and just ditched the old one in a drawer with the wastebasket right next to the vanity. Stupid! I need to vacuum and work on clothes sorting today.

Susan -- I'm not sure how much rain we've gotten as our rain gauge quit working again. Bob has to get on a stepladder to check -- probably a leaf or a cobweb is plugging the hole. We sure could have used the rain mid-summer instead of now though. I just wonder when the "powers" in Washington will get their act together and agree on some plan. What's on your agenda for today?

I'm dressed and need to get busy! Hope you all enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!

Talking Wonderful not so windy Wednesday

GOOD ROCKTOBER AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫

We haven’t headed out to CA yet for that state is dragging it’s feet. She wanted to be cremated and placed in the corner of my mother’s grave and they won’t allow that. My suggestion is to place her in a urn and sprinkle her ashes in one of her favorite places like up at the cabin for instance. I have two sisters that were sprinkled up there. Anyway until things can be sorted out we will just stay here until they let us know when the service will be held. They know it will take us a few days to get there so they will surely take that into consideration when they set a date. I imagine we will probably head to CA on the coming Monday but what I think maybe not be in their time frame. We will just have to wait and see. As far as how I feel about Tricia’s passing is that she is in a much better place for she has suffered for many years since her accident when she was a teen. What the doctors told us in years past made us amazed, quite frankly, that she lived as long as she did. She has some wonderful friends that are taking care of all the arrangements out there. We got all packed and ready to leave this morning and I am not going to unpack everything. Thank you gals for your kind words for our loss. We are happy that she is in a better place and saddened that she is gone. It will be good for the animals to have some time at home before being put back in prison. Yep we will take Cecil there also once again after we re-thought what might happen to him left alone at home.

We got the top rack installed on the Jeep and that didn’t turn out so well for the wind whistling through it was so loud it gave us both headaches on our outing today. Will has the Jeep back in the shop to have it removed. None of the reviews that we read said this would happen so Will is going to write one. They probably do work better on a hard top but we love our rag top. We drove about a 100 miles to a Olive Garden restaurant and had that lovely salad and one of their small white pizzas which we split. We plan on going to that city at least once a month and eating at a good restaurant. Next it will be Chili’s then the Red Lobster. There are other stores there that we can get products from that we can’t get here so it will be a fun outing for sure. In a craft shop we picked up a huge beautiful snowflake that will be lovely hanging in a front window.

SUSAN I was jazzed to find that washer and dryer. They are making such neat things for small places like trailers, motor homes and college dorm rooms nowdays. The large type washer/dryer combos are really nice but we really don't want to give up that closet space and these little things can be stored easily in an outside compartment. I do so love fresh towels. It is in the high 50's here today and we are going to get some rain.

JEAN I had to laugh about your tooth brushes. We also get new ones every 6 months and don't use them for we prefer our electronic brushes. We do have one in our travel bags and they get replaced before they ever do really need to. They make good little scrubbers also for places in the bathroom or kitchen. I like to use them on the faucets especially. The small tubes of tooth paste are great to have in the travel bags.

Have a great afternoon my Magnolia friends.

Good afternoon, ladies! We had rain in the night but the sun is out right now and heading for 79 degrees today.

I had my library bee last night and tonight is Ladies of the Evening so that will be fun. Tomorrow night is Sew Night at Bella's so another evening of fun. Lisa told me she is moving Bella to a new and larger location 7 miles further down the road. I'm so glad she is doing so good. Her first shop was tiny, that was 5 years ago.

Maggie, I am always sorry for the family and friends of those left behind but never for the person who passed away for they are in a much better place and free from any pain they were having on earth. It great your daughter had friends in CA to help here and to now help you at this difficult time. I always get Apricot Chicken and salad when I go to Olive Garden. It is so good!

Jean, I hate to get winter things out, too, but I can tell you a blanket is going on the bed this weekend. It was cold with just the quilt. I need to get winter clothes out and see what fits and what needs to go to the thrift store.

Have a wonderful day. My lunchtime is just about over so I need to get to work.

Talking Thoughtful Thursday

GOOD ROCKTOBER LATE MORNING MAGNOLIAS☺♫

It is a chilly 40°s this morning in the ♥-Land and it feels good with the heater turned on. Will has gone to the museum and all is quiet here in this house. I sure hope I can get into get my hair trimmed before we do have to head out to CA. My upsweep is a bit too long and Will needs his head shaved. I can shave his head but he can’t cut my hair. Will wants me to make a pot of chili beans this day so that is what I will be doing for dinner. Easy for me to do and in this weather they will taste good. It is down right chilly outside.

I ordered a few necessary things for the MH and what is really neat is that they have a great dog dish combo that doesn’t spill water on the floor for those of us who have dogs on our travels. The food and water dishes sit in a container that has walls and holes in the bottom which drain the spilt water into a tray that encases it. Here at home we have their dishes sitting on a place mat but need something better for when we are all in the MH. I have the perfect corner in the kitchen area where I will feed them. I can just see their bowls sliding across the floor so I am getting prepared. Right now the MH is parked out of town in the country at a friends place where we will leave it for the winter. Meanwhile we will be fixing up a place here beside the house to park it. I can wait until then to get all the goodies I have rounded up to put into it to take care of our creature comforts. I got a chuckle when I overheard Will talking with a man today and said, “No Maggie will not be overloading it but will put what is necessary in it.” I already saved a chunk of weight for opting to not put in a full sized washer/dryer in a closet. Plus I saved a chunk of change by getting the little washer and dryer instead of the thousand dollar model of washer/dryer. It is fun gathering up the necessary things we will need to have in it.

Since we don’t plan to be full-timers again when I make up a menu for the amount of time we will be “out there” on the road I can make sure, if needed, I also take what appliance it is to make the food in but that particular appliance won’t have a permanent home in the MH. Right at this moment in time I can’t think of what I would have to take along except if Will wanted me to pressure smoke a rack of ribs. I can make most dinners without using a special appliance but just in case that is what I can do. Also I have to think of what I can make without any electricity because where we go there aren’t always any hook ups. I have an oven that fits on a camp stove that collapses down to 2 inches thick and is a 12”x12” cube when opened up. It bakes great biscuits. I do have ways to cook and bake without electricity. I have small bake pans that fit into that oven also. Since I am the chief cook and bottle washer I need to have my tools. And would you believe it if I told you I even have a bake tile that fits into that small oven on the rack. I use a tile stone here at home for baking so why not on the road also I ask. Yikes I have been a motor mouth about our motor home fixins.

SUSAN What a wonderful busy week you are having. Congratulations to your friend Bella who owns that shop. You are so right about the folks left behind when someone crosses over but we should really be joyful that they are in a better place. I hope they are planning a sing off for her out there. It is so nice to hear the mighty chorus singing a loved ones favorite songs as a “sing off” for the one who has passed. Next time we go to OG I am going to have that Apricot Chicken and endless salad you mentioned. It sounds yummy.

Have a great afternoon my Magnolia friends.

Good Afternoon, Flowers! It's a beautiful fall day in my neighborhood although chilly and breezy. I went to get my nails done this morning and ran a couple other errands on my way home. I've been looking and sorting through catalogs; I seem to get a lot of catalogs in the fall. Bob is farming again so won't see him until dark.

Maggie -- A monthly trip to your favorite shopping sites and restaurants sounds like a good plan to me! I really like all three of your places to eat. It was 32 degrees when I went downstairs this morning -- too cold. I hope you can get your hair cut before you leave. It seems like my hair will be just the way I like it one day and the next it goes every which way and time for a trim. I can imagine you are having fun to get everything together for your motorhome. It's too bad it's not all set for the CA trip. How many children do you have? If you've ever said I have forgotten.

Susan -- When you speak of Ladies of the Night, I ALWAYS have to ! You have been doing a lot of quilting! It's nice that Bella is doing so well and move to a larger place. I'm seriously thinking about putting the flannel sheets on the bed! Bob mentioned he was cold the other night and brought a blanket up from downstairs. I have a small extra blanket I put on my side now but he is usually warmer than I am. When I'm cold I'm cold!

I need to keep moving and vacuum the fur/dust bunnies. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day!

Good Morning, Flowers! The sun is shining, NO wind for a nice change, and it's a cold 34 degrees! Bob is farming again today and I have lots of things I can do; more drawers to clean out, clothes and shoes to sort, pictures to sort through, a grocery run, and the list goes on. I did get the dusting and vacuuming done yesterday plus both bathrooms.

I need to make my grocery list and beat the crazy people who come out on Fridays. This town is just plain nuts on Fridays for some reason. Hope you all enjoy a great day!

Talking Finally Friendly Fun Friday

GOOD ROCKTOBER AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫

Gracious sakes I woke up and it was snowing large flakes. We will probably have frost on the pumpkin this year. Not quite enough to cover all the grass but it snowed. The talking heads did say that it will be much cooler this week and next. I actually got out one of my jackets to wear when I go outside.

I made a huge pot of chili beans last evening for dinner and have a goodly amount left for a nice dinner tonight. We have some delicious onion buns from the bakery that are so good toasted to go with a nice bowl of it. I have some peaches that need to be cut up and that will be so good to serve for a nice healthy dessert. I like to sprinkle a tad bit of almond flavoring with some Splenda® over the slices and they are so yummy. Makes my mouth water thinking about that.

While out and about Will brought me a sheet of sticky backed hearts. They have any design you can think of just about on them ~ no two are alike and they are of small sized to large. There are 66 in all on the page and range from small ¾ inch up to ⅞ inch ones. And he brought a page of 30 different “Sealed With a Kiss” (lips) stickers of 3 different sized blotted lips. What fun I will have with my new stickers.

Nothing much on my ticket this afternoon except getting my hair cut. Just waiting for the call to start our journey out to CA ~ I’m still packed and ready to go.

JEAN I do hope in your cleaning out your drawers that you find something that you have been looking for. That usually happens with me. AH, that is where that is. I am sure your husbands friends are very happy that he loves to ride the tractor. Helps them out tremendously I would imagine. Got to get out there while the getting’ is good. The people come out on Friday here also to shop. Guess they need to make a run for what they need for the weekend.

Have a great afternoon my Magnolia friends.

Good Morning, Flowers! It is raining, cold, and gloomy in my neighborhood this morning. Bob just left to see if it raining in the fields they were working on yesterday. Lots of times we get rain and the other side of the lake does not, or vice versa. Weird! I need to make a library run as my books are due Monday. I'm afraid I will forget if I wait until Monday in between church, the hospital, bank, and a meeting.

Maggie -- Keep your snowflakes! Bob just came home and announced they've been rained out for the day. Guess I will run some errands with him.

I do need to get some laundry going and head for the library too. Enjoy your day wherever you are and whatever you have planned for the day.

Talking Simply Saturday

GOOD ROCKTOBER AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫

The snow we got yesterday went away very quickly but not before I did get to look out and see a white yard. Seems a little early for snow but what do I know. The temperature today is said not to get any higher than the 60°s. The dogs and cat love it for they are all outside laying on the grass.

The new gal that did my hair did a job as good as the one I used to have do my hair who is no longer there. The gal that used to do my hair was the owner and sold it and is setting up a place in her home to do hair. When she gets it all set up we will go there to get our hair done probably since we are two of the ones she gave personal invitations to come to her home.

The gal that did my hair yesterday and I got to talking about coffee and we both like ours hot. I told her what kind of coffee drinking container I have and she wants one so I took the catalogue to her that I got mine from. It has remained as the best one to keep the beverage hot longer than any other on the market says the catalogue that searches for the “best” of what it sells. For those of us that like our coffee hot it is the best container to have in my humble opinion. It also keeps ice for hours also.

I received the RV clothes dryer and am anxious to give it a try. I think I will wait to try it out after I receive the washer I have on order. We have it figured out where to park the MH in the back yard and it will just take removing some of the fencing and replacing it with a gate and placing some boards down to park it on until we can get a slab poured. It is a pretty level part of the back yard and won’t take much removal to make it truly level. Even though our friends say we can leave it at their house we would rather have it here so we can do what we want to it more conveniently. So as soon as we can get the yard fixed for it we can go get it and bring it home. I can put the items that I have ordered to go in it in their proper places.

I saw something disgusting in the Wal*Mart parking lot yesterday. A tall thin young man had his pants belted tight around his legs below his bottom so they would not slip further off down his legs. I certainly do hope this does not catch on and becomes the style of the day. His black undershorts were pulled up to his waist. For sure he is a definite negative attention seeker. It reminded me of those pictures that circulated around the internet awhile back about Wal*Mart shoppers in various stages of dress or undress as it was in many cases. Some folks just don’t care what they look like while out in the public eye and others love the shock value they glean from being outrageous.

I have a nice lean piece of sirloin meat in the crock pot with a packet of dry onion soup spread over the top with some garlic powder mixed in. It should all be ready come dinner time. I will make some green beans and mashed potatoes to go with it and some more of those delicious peaches. I do so love fresh fruit. I just finished a cup of chicken broth soup for my lunch and it felt so good going down.

JEAN Hope you had a good time running errands. I have a stack of books I plan on reading that belong to Will and they are some of my favorite authors. The one I am just starting is by Robert Crais, Taken and is an uncorrected proof for limited distrubition. The author may make changes before it goes to press. Crais is the master of crime fiction and I love reading his works.

Have a great afternoon my Magnolia friends.

Good Afternoon, Flowers! The sun is shining, the wind is blowing, it's raining leaves, and it's a cool 57 degrees in my neighborhood. A beautiful fall day if I do say so myself. We are supposed to head down into the low 40s next week. Bob sang at church today so I went back after second service for lunch. The kids grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for a fund raiser. Bob is back at the farm and I'm trying to decide what to do next. I have a busy day tomorrow (counting money at church, flu shot at the hospital, gift shop money to count and deposit, a meeting in the afternoon, and card club tomorrow night, so know I won't get anything done around here tomorrow. I wish everything didn't happen in one day but that seems to be the norm lately.

Maggie -- I am curious to know how many pieces of clothing, or other articles, you can wash and dry at one time. We were always nagging boys to pull up their pants at school. One teacher said he would ask one time and then would kick the kid out of class until there was a meeting with parents. Sometimes that worked and sometimes it didn't. I have to admit our WM is bad but not quite as bad as some of the pictures I've seen on other emails. From people watching I think there are way too many who don't care how they look when they are out in public.

I guess I will finish the Sunday papers and go from there . . . . . maybe a nap is in order. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Talking Sunny Sunday

GOOD ROCKTOBER AFTERNOON MAGNOLIAS☺♫

I hope your Sunday is going well with you. The temp today is in the 60° range with a light breeze.

We went by and looked at gates and have settled on a chain link fence type to match our back fence. We need to put one in to get the motor home into the back yard. We want to get it home so we can winterize it and do some other things on it.

Still no word from CA of when my daughter’s funeral can be held. Guess there is a long line of those in that particular area that have requested to have folks cremated. We remain packed and ready to go all except making arrangements for the animals to be boarded and motel reservations to made ~ once again.

This is the Sunday where we go to another small town where Will preaches for a congregation there once a month. They always have a wonderful pot-luck for the noon meal and I am able to make “smart” choices. I love it that whoever brings the fresh green salad brings jars of dressing for folks to choose which one they prefer. I eat mine plain and have gotten used to that way. Sometimes when we are eating out and the restaurant has a real good dressing I have it on the side and use the dipping of the fork method.

I get such a kick out of Cecil. While I was out in the kitchen he brought a live cricket and dropped it at my feet then he backed up about 3 feet, sat down and watched me. I got a paper towel and picked it up and told him what a good boy he was to bring it to me and put it in the trash. He is such a good boy to bring me gifts. He then went back outside stalking something in the grass ~ probably another cricket.

JEAN The small compact washer has a 4½ pounds washing capacity. All the reviews on it were great for the folks who have them love them. When I get mine I will wash a load and then try out my little spin dryer. I ordered the washer and the dryer from different places and that is why I didn't get them both delivered at the same time. One place is lots slower than the other I am finding out. At least those guys at your school weren't wearing their pants below their bottom ~ just close. Why even wear pants if you want all that to show?

Have a great afternoon my Magnolia friends.

Good morning, ladies! A nippy 43 degrees this morning!

I have a quilt on my bed but I'm going to have to put a blanket under it for I woke up in the night feeling cold. Casper must have been cold, too, for he got under the quilt and went to sleep.

I hope this isn't a sign of a snowy cold winter. The leaves are falling without even having much color this year. My Cape Myrtle is already bare.

No quilting bees this week so it will be a time I can do some quilting at home. I'm also making a bag for my yoga mat. I found this fabric of frogs doing yoga poses so I'm going to incorporate that into the bag.

Jean, the farmers are harvesting cotton now. It looks like snow along the sides of the road where it falls off the trucks. There is a bumper crop this year with all the rain we had throughout the summer. A good thing because last year they lost a lot due to too much rain at harvest time. The price of cotton quilting fabric is now $12.95 and up. I'm glad I have a large fabric stash so I don't have to buy more.

Maggie, your monthly trip sounds like a nice change. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun outfitting your motor home. It's like a doll house for grownups!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Good Afternoon, Flowers! I am home for a couple hours until I have to change clothes for card club. It's been a sunny, windy, too cool day in my neighborhood. I really noticed the wind coming and going from all of my running in and out of the car to buildings today. The church secretary added another account on my list so half of my entries went to budget while the rest went to the kids' fund raiser; the difference being whether someone pledged or not. GRRRR! I didn't catch it until I was almost done but she graciously "fixed" all of them individually while I watched. She's done that to me before and it makes me growly when I don't catch it right away. Got my flu shot at the hospital, so picked up the gift shop money while I was there. Made that deposit on my way to my afternoon meeting. Bob is farming so I won't see him until I get home from card club later. Tomorrow I'm meeting with the gift shop buyer, who has resigned, to learn how to order the greeting cards.

Maggie -- I thought maybe you would plan a winter jaunt in your new motorhome. You will have fun getting it ready for whenever you decide to go.

Susan -- Your weather sounds like our's right now. Your yoga mat bag will be cute with the frogs on it. The prices on everything are going up by leaps and bounds! I've noticed several things coming in smaller packaging too. However, our gas price just dropped to $3.05. Go figure!

"Gma" -- I thought you would be home by now. Hope all is well with you and Jack.

I just noticed my neighbor has a gutless deer hanging upside down in his garage with the door open. Gag! He does that every year and I wish he'd shut the door!

Hope you all enjoy your evening!
