Friday Flower Bloggin'


The lovely little snowdrops have been blooming for a few weeks. This group is on the west side but there are little groups scattered thoughout the grass.

Yesterday was a busy day. I went to exercise class and then to Jack and Helen's Restuarant with Betty and Liz. After lunch, I drove to Baker's Restaurant to meet Nancy. I had left my music for Choral Society in her car Tuesday night. From there, I drove over to the shopping center in Glasgow. I went into the Seed Store and priced grass seed and other items. I chatted with the owner for awhile. He showed me the different grass seeds he had but said it was too early to plant the seed. It would not germinate in the cold. I decided to buy some crab grass killer. It's still too early for that but I wanted to have it on hand. I got some light bulbs in Home Depot for my bathroom. They are the energy saving kind. They are fat fancy bulbs that go over the mirror. There are 4 of them so I'm hoping these will help lower the wattage. The bathroom circuit seems to frequently need the reset button pushed. The outside outlet is also connected to the bathroom and some of the bedroom outlets. I also got a mat for the laundry room as I used the mats I had to put my plants on under the windows in my bedroom and computer room. I didn't want to set them on the carpets. Now that I have my deck, I use the back door to go in and out. The front door is hard to lock as I put extra weather stripping to keep out the cold air. The deadbolt must be locked or you can see light around the edges of the door otherwise. Opening the lock on the outside with the key is difficult. You have to pull on the door real hard to take off the pressure to turn the key. It requires two hands and you have to put down anything you are carrying to do it. It needs a new door but they are expensive.

I went to the Dollar Tree store. I had to return an over the door hook as it didn't fit. I alway end of getting a few more things than I planned on. Eggs were $.79 for eight. I got some greeting cards and some snacks.

When I got home, I walked Danny and got ready for church. I went to help with the fellowship dinner. One of my new friends made a pasta dinner. Most everything was done. I put some paper towels in the big basket that was to hold the garlic bread sticks and a couple other little things. I left for my Yoga class at the Town Point church and then back for dinner at Trinity Church. The lasagne and garlic bread sticks were gone. I had the speghetti, macaroni, rigatoni, and cold chicken pasta salad. I also had a nice garden salad and two big scoops of ice cream. I helped dry the dishes as Pastor Mark washed. They had the kitchen pretty well cleaned up by the time I got there so I didn't get any leftovers to bring home.

I went to Pastor Mark's Bible Study and then to Choir practice. When I got home, I watched Midsommer Murders on PBS. They started a new season. It was good. It seem a lot of people in the little community were getting killed and almost all the people seem guilty or were hiding some kind of secret.

Hi, Sure hope Erin gets to feeling better soon. There seems to be a lot of germs floating around (enough for everyone) it seems. Anyone I have spoken to says its because of the warmer weather. The theory being that it is not quite cold enough to kill all the germs in the air.

My husband Dave began not feeling well last Sat. and he ran a temp and felt very sick to his stomach for a couple of days. He recovered in a few days, but, we weren't able to go to church last Sunday. We don't like to miss our services on Sunday, but, he didn't want to spread his germs around either. I'm just so thankful he felt better sooner than I had expected. He is our church treasurer and he was scheduled to present some new concepts on Monday evening and I surely didn't think he'd be up to it, but, he did it. What a guy - huh!!!! And, I hope Erin feels better just as quickly. I'll bet your chicken soup will do the healing trick. Love, Ruth
