All my brothers & sisters as well as their spouses & kids, 40 people total, we all stay together in a large lodge for the weekend. Dh & I host it every year & take care of the food. It is always alot of fun.

I plugged in the scooter and started to get dressed to make a run to CVS. Son showed up and asked me where did I think I was going. It's raining out. Can't take the scooter out in the rain. So he ran the errands for me. So I am staying in and cleaning up here inside.

Got up early (grudgingly) because the cats were tapdancing on my head. Working on my second cup of coffee now after cleaning the kitchen (YIKES!), getting the turkey in to brine and checking on all the outside plants. Bugs's apple has sprouted! She is going to be so pleased. Going to repot some more aloes. I have about 60 bazillion all sprouted up again. Sheesh!

My dad had dozens of hummers when he lived in Arizona. He would just mix up sugar and water, no boiling, and pour it in the feeders. I do NOT recommend doing that! His feeders were all black with mold, and I don't think it was good for the hummers!
I think we were late getting it out last year. We were quite early this year due to the mild weather to be sure we attracted them. No luck.

I think starting in March you need to don this outfit and dance in the yard for two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening to attract the fellows with the white coats and butterfly nets errr, hummingbirds.

I think Andy would look divine in that outfit.

An aloe I planted last year has put out a flower stalk, which I didn't expect. Do they make usable seeds? How do you get sprouts -- I'd like to have some more plants. TIA.
