I put flowers inside the center of my latest star color combos. These have rusty/brown triangles on the ends (the others had purple). I am amassing quite a collection of star blocks. They are quite entertaining to make. I don't know just what I will do with them. Nor do I really care. I just make them because it's fun. Sooner or later I will have an "ah ha" moment and decide what to do with them.
I just got home for the evening. I had to return some library books after work and I had my twice monthly nail appointment today. I've had the same nail art done for the past three appointments and I've worn the same color for the past four weeks. The color is called 'wine me & dine me'. No wonder I like it. :) I adore being wined and dined!
The polish is still curing, so I can't do much more than type. That makes me feel totally justified blogging rather than doing a household chore.
I am watching Ina Garten as I type. She is making a pumpkin banana tort. It looks delicious, though it is a combination hat I have never tried. Has anyone ever had banana and pumpkin together in a pie?
6:30pm: Now I am watching Rachael Ray cook a Thanksgiving dinner for 8 in one hour. I don't mean to put Rachael down, but I doubt that any meal that is cooked in one hour would be a dinner that I want to eat for Thanksgiving! I just don't think all the warm, homey Thanksgiving feelings could be cooked into any one-hour meal.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
