Good afternoon! Adjusting to the time change is especially hard for me this time, ugh! I couldn't drag myself out of bed the last 2 morning at 5:30 to work out... too tired!

Rainy, blah day today... so I find myself cooking and baking away! I made a vegetarian stir fry, chicken to go along with it for my husband, soft pretzels, and cookies thus far.... hold me back! Eyeing up a pumpkin bread recipe! Might go for it!

I saw Sarah Palin is coming out with a Christmas book this AM! Just seeing the word "Christmas" on TV today made me happy!

have a great day!

You too!!! I have been lurking, mostly, when I can but we've been spending a lot of time outside lately, even in the cold! 2 little boys + a long, not snowy (boo!) winter = CRAZY, as I'm sure you know!!

PS - Jude is cracking up at your sig pic!!!

What are you planting? I started my seedling a week or two ago and they are doing great!! I have some tomatoes, eggplant, peppers... cauliflower. I know I'm forgetting some!

I've got marigolds, geraniums, basil, rosemary, and some catnip which is about as finicky as a cat, it has not been wanting to germinate.

That comment takes me way back ... when I was little, catnip grew wild in the backyard. I used to bring in leaves of it for our cat. She'd slobber and roll around all over it! We never bought dried catnip, just picked the fresh stuff!
