~~~ It's almost time ! ~~~

It's almost time for the girls to have those grandbabies. My oldest daughter is due Nov. 23 , but they may induce her the first of the week. The youngest daughter will have some testing done on Monday to see if the baby's lungs are developed. They are planning to induce her next week too. It's looking as though I might be spending turkey day at the hospital.
Can't wait til these little bundles of joy are here. It's been kinda stressful this past month. Dr. appts every week , stress test for the youngest daughter and last Sunday I had to take the oldest daughter to the hospital. She woke up dizzy and feeling bad , when we arrived at the hospital , they checked her and said she was dehydrated. She has been feeling alot better since.
The youngest daughter had a ameo test last Monday , the results were negative , meaning the lungs are not mature. She has been miserable , itching intensely , mostly at night so she isn't resting well. It hurts me to see her this way , I'll be so glad when the birth is over and she is blessed with a healthy baby boy.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful , creative weekend !

Love & Hugs

Fall Planting & Preparing

This week I've been digging up my irises and daffodils and replanting them. I finished planting and mulching them yesterday. Can't wait to see the blooms this spring.

Garlic ..... I planted garlic Saturday and finished mulching it yesterday too. This is the first time I have ever planted garlic and I'm curious as to how it will turn-out. I love cooking with garlic , it adds such a wonderful natural flavor and is good for you too. The great thing about growing garlic is there isn't to much work in it. You plant , mulch and let it grow. It will grow until next June or July. I will need to add a natural fertilizer in the spring as the garlic starts to sprout up.

Moved all the tropical plants down to the basement lastnight. We're suppose to have a hard freeze tonight. I need to get busy and clean out the basement. There's a lot of clutter down there too. Maybe that will be my weekend project.

Hope you're having a great week !
