I treated myself to a new Gooseberry Patch cookbook.
Hope everyones having a great day so far!

Despite the snow (yes, we're still snowing) I am planning on taking the garden center by force over the weekend and start putting together planters and hanging baskets. It will be interesting to see if I can actually put this plan in motion or whether it remains another one of my good intentions (I'm telling you, my road to hell is going to be SO well paved!!!!!)

Later, 'gators !!!!!!!
I just poured a glass & am toasting with you, Maureen!!

Hope all goes well tomorrow. I'll be thinking of you.

Gooseberry Patch is a publisher of books, some are cookbooks, craft books, calendars, those little organization books, etc.

They're great!!

They come out with ones for different holidays. My favorites are their Christmas & Halloween editions!

I have her crate ready. I'm going to hate to do it, but she will have to be put in there so I can get her quickly if there is severe weather on tap. Take care, Christmasstar!
our babies are so special! Penny can be tempted with cheese strings, she is nuts about them.

glad to hear he is doing ok

Wednesday and it's after 5! Ya-hoooo, were officially over the hump....

I went to an orthopaedic surgeon to get my results from an MRI I had taken of my knee last week. He confirmed to me that the pain that I have been having in my knee for the past 6 months (I did it pushing a 12,000 watt generator around the house, in the rain, during Hurricane Sandy - now, not so smart of an idea...), was from a torn Meniscus. That means surgery on April 22nd.

The surgeon said the MRI showed a torn meniscus, some floaters and some arthritis, nice... He said he'll go in there and clean it out while he's there; roto-roter??? I'm not even 50 yet and it's already starting....lol

So, one good thing that I can remember while I'm home that week, I can be here all day.....

I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!

P.S.- I didn't reply to all of the quotes about severe weather because it would have taken forever but know that I'm praying for all of you to stay safe.
thank you, it is getting chilly here now, but the rain has stopped. Our river is overflowing the banks in places. Fortunately we have a good drainage system and we do not have to worry about flooding yet.

Ouch! Thinking of you.
Sorry to hear that you're hurting, hope the pain subsides. Good luck with your surgery, friend!

No problem!

You'd love the Halloween ones!

The one I bought last year had spooky recipes for a Halloween party & crafty ideas to decorate your house! Costume ideas, etc...some really cool stuff!

They are pretty reasonable. Check out Amazon, too. I can always find deals on them there, too.
