I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off!!!!!!! The North Mobile Garden Society meets at my house tonight....and let me just tell you that this makes me VERY nervous!! Its one thing to have a meeting at your house, but different when its the garden club. #1 the yard must be perfect, #2 the house must be clean. So now...#1 & #2 are complete.....I think....
I worked on the garden all weekend to get ready. I came home yesterday and found 4 or 5 bags of leaves sitting at my gate....hmmmm not sure where they came from. I had to put them out quickly since I had so much to do inside.
I made my way inside, broke out the Hoover Floormate (the best investment I ever made) and went to town. Actually Jennifer went to town! God has blessed me with the amazing....AMAZING friends. Jennifer and Von came over to help me clean....can you believe that....all for FREE! I am amazed. I told them I will come clean both of their houses.
I began vacuuming pet hair off of everything in my house...thanks to one small, 9lb furry chirper we like to call Kiki! I am sometimes amazed that the cat isn't hairless as much as she sheds!! Kiki only has 3 spots in the living room she sleeps in, and these 3 spots are were I have laid blankets for her. Good little angel! She sleeps on the back of the chair, at the foot of the couch, and at the arm of the couch. She will not sleep where I don't have a blanket laid for her...God love her! This is good, it helps cut down on her shedding half of her body weight everywhere else. I wish she would let me vacuum her once a day.....but I some how don't think she would go for it!
After the cleaning spree...I had to make a fruit trifle. Low and behold...I couldn't find the trifle bowl....ugh!!!!! I know I have one...but where is it? Von to the rescue.....she let me borrow hers! Thanks Von!!!!!!!!! Whipped up the trifle, dusted the furniture...and off to bed I went. ZZZZZZZZ!
So am I ready......NO! I have no idea how many people will be there...I have a fear of 30 people showing up, since we have all invited gardeners to join us. The thought of gardeners coming to my piddly garden strikes fear in my heart.
One day I will have a big fancy smancy garden to show off....but it is what it is!
Tomorrow I will have lots of pics of the meeting for you. I can also show you the finished product of the garden flags we painted (Garden Tour Flags)...in all of its glory.
