Well, lets start from from bad to good.
last winter my dad was in a pretty bad accident-he's lucky to be alive. from the hospital he was put into a nursing home where he'll have to stay from now on. I don't get to see him much, he's atleast 3 hours away. With gas prices (lets not go there) I don't go see him much but keep in contact with the nurses & him on the phone. half the time he doesn't know who he's talking to though.
In sept 1st my daughter had her baby girl. Her name is Haley. We just had her 1st birthday party.

This summer Jessica has been busy in 2 differant fairs with showing her rabbits. then we took our vacation this year to Ohio to visit with my son who's going to college in Lima for auto machanics. we stayed there a week with him. Boy! talk about humidity! WOW the whole week was HOT. But fun, we enjoyed the visit. Then about 2 weeks after that he came home for a short summer visit.
We had a week visit with my daughte-in-law and her family from Missiouri. Its always fun to visit with them also when they come up.
Now, Like I said, we just had Haleys 1st birthday Party. She's walking all over the place now and has 8 teeth. Boy you should have seen the frosting all over her face :) what a mess :) At the end of opening all her birthday gifts-the very last one my daughter pulls out this baby shirt that reads "BABY SISTER" we were surprised to learn there's baby # 2 on the way in April. They also have a wedding date set for Next sept-get this-9/10/11 gotta be a good date there, huh?
Now my youngest is soo glad to be back in school. She said she's ready for things to settle down for a while. She's now in her 6th grade, last year of elementary, wow how time flies.
I hope this catches everyone up.
I have put out flowers. I so love my flowers. we put up a garden in the greenhouse but it hasn't done very well-been too busy this summer. My plan next year will be to get a clear cover finally on the grenhouse, maybe things will grow better then. I have set up another plant room in a differant spare bedroom this year for winter. I mostly over winter all my coleus in there and a few geraniums. I hate seeing plants die off if they can be saved by over wintering them. The end

Hello there Petunia! It is really good to see you back on here.
Hi Petunia! Nice to see you here again!
Wintering over is a lot of trouble but well worth it it you have varities that are hard to come bt or some you really like. I take cuttings and root them up before it gets to cold for most stuff but my plumerias, the whole plant comes in on the porch. Good luck with your plans I hope all works out for next year too.
