First, I would like to thank all my blogger friends for the support, whether it was just thoughts, prayers, e-mails or comments, I really appreciate it, Thanks again.

Even though I have not posted anything for awhile, I have been keeping up to date with every one's blogs and leaving a comment or two, all of you have been very busy with one thing or another.

I have been busy, and I need to keep busy, the weather has been lovely for the last little while and I have been able to do a lot in my garden to prepare it for Winter. Pulling weeds, Oh !! my there was a lot and cutting back plants and moving some to a better location. The lawn furniture has been stored away, the canvas sun shade (gazebo) taken down and stored in the basement. I even found the power screwdriver, made sure it did the "lefty loosey" and dismantled the metal framework for the gazebo. Removed the temperature "thingy" that opens the greenhouse roof vents. Now all I have to do is to remember how it goes back on in the Spring.!!!

Geraniums have been taken out of the garden, re potted and currently in the greenhouse until it gets too cold for them there, at which time I will bring them in the house.

The pump and filter are now out of the pond, so its almost ready for the cold weather. I have put a netting over it so all the leaves that I starting to fall will not go into the water and decompose. If they do it means I will have to clean the pond again in the Spring. Speaking of leaves, I will soon have to get the leaf blower/sucker out and pick up the ones that are starting to blow around and add them to my compost container.

One of my sil emptied the water butt, and stored the large deck chair cushion container for me, both too awkward for me to handle.

When we had a couple of rainy days, I cleaned, cleaned and cleaned again in the house, until I started cleaning everything over and over again. At that point in time I figured I should find something else todo. So I found a pattern, purchased fabric for my Granddaughter's Wedding quilt. She was married on Oct 9th but I will save photos for another post. Still working on my hexes while watching TV, can't sit with nothing in my hands.

Going to the theatre tonight with "girls" that I use to work with. We have a subscription for the Grand Theatre in London, Ontario, tonight we will be attending a musical - "Side by Side by Sondheim". Its a celebration of the music of legendary Broadway and film composer Stephen Sondheim. Sounds like it will be fun.

Its feels good to be back.
