Hi Tootsie!

Happy New Year. Hope you had a wonderful holiday! It is just frigid here with more snow on the way. Be glad you have that heated garage. We have a ton of storage and my hubby's flashy car in the garage so I am in the driveway. Totally unheated!!

Hope to be in FF once something starts to grow. I am in indoor plant serial killer, so I don't think I will be able to contribute. I will be by to see what you have, my friend! :-)

Happy New Year! I hope you had a nice break!!!

I'm grateful to have found my husband. We share so much together and it makes life a lot happier that way.

I know couples who do not have a single shared interest and that seems very sad to me.

Maureen said...

Welcome back!

Darla said...

Maybe some flowers here Friday,,,,don't know. We are have unseasonable COLD temps!!! Glad you are back up and running!!

Nutty Gnome said...

Me? I'm grateful I got a snow day today!!!
Up until last winter we'd not had any decent amount of snow for years. This year is already surpassing last year by quite a few inches and I'm loving it! My inner 8 year old is having a ball :)

Old Time Cindy said...

I popped in to see what you have been up to and to say hi. Welcome back!
Living it up at Lakewood,

I haven't even thought of growing anything yet! You're amazing!

Jacki said...

Howdy Tootsie! How have you been, girl? I have not been around because I had a rough autumn - I finally realized that the emotional issues that hit every fall are tied to my mom's illness and passing (diagnosed Nov '04, and passed Nov '05). Duh! I am doing much better and will hopefully get my blog up and running again soon. I had a lovely Christmas holiday and am looking forward to the promised warmer weather this weekend. That must mean you'll be enjoying it by Thursday or so? Glad to see you are still hosting Fertilizer Fridays and that you are your usual chirpy self ;-) Happy New Year to you!

I'm so glad the holidays are over and on with the new year. I am so excited about the coming spring. I just had to plant some seeds on Sunday. I couldn't wait but I think the lettuce and broccoli will produce even if I have to put them in pots in my utility room window (there is no heat in utility room). Have a good day Tootsie and stay warm.

Hi Tootise
Your post is wonderful to see.
I have a heated garage too.
when I built this house, the second in 5 years, I had him put a huge double long window. the doors have windows so it is pretty light. I have my ivy hanging there for next year.
Can't wait to garden,
Yaahoo !!!! yvonne

I was just thinking about FF today and hoping my Amaryllis will be open in time. Otherwise you'll be seeing a bunch of sad Pansies :)
I love Darla's idea and a heated garage sounds great!

Oh I was thinking about your FF last Friday but no one was participating and I wasn't feeding anything!

Oh I have to say that I am grateful for my senses ie touch, smell, sight, hearing etc etc.

I've just been making my seedlists so I can get my seeds ordered (late). About Feb. 15, we'll be starting in the greenhouses. That's good and thats good, but just too soon. We have no life once the work starts, since we are a mom-and-pop operation with no hired help we can delegate to to give ouselves some time off. Since I rarely go to your town, and you likely don't come to my village, we should make a date some time to meet somewhere in the middle.

Hi Friend! It seems like forever since I have been over- so sorry- already feel like I am running behind and it's just the new year starting!

I was thinking of you today - I have packed away most of Christmas- keeping my little white tree up till Valentines I think- so am thinking about spring and planting and seeds and needing to get my grow lights put up somewhere so I can get a heads start this year! It is an unsightly contraption so needs to be somewhere hiding. I haven't gotten any seed catalogs for some reason yet. Do you have any seed suggestions for this spring to try?


Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Oh Tootsie! I don't deserve you!! I ignore my outside flowers until Springtime..and it has been in the 70's here for days. I have NO excuse not to have something that blooms through the winter. However, my ferns are doing least from what I can see of them.
Your plants are beautiful! We are expecting a wee bit of rain..but it usually passes us by! Your plants make your room just beautiful!

I am looking forward to seeing what you do in Spring. I NEED help! :)

Hi Tootsie
I had a wee computer issue today. I went in to change something in my blog profile and I ended up changing the wrong thing and I think I may have severed all connections I had - links and blog followers and that sort of thing. I still want to be your blog friend. If you still want to follow me, you may have to redo it. I learn everything on the computer through trial and error and this was one big error! Sorry about that.
