The Pineapple Express......

.........has come to western Washington. It's rained cats & dogs all day and the temperature is hovering just under 60*. I got wet taking the garbage can out to the curb, so came in and lit a fire in the wood stove and now it's a little warm in here.

I almost pruned my roses way down the other day and now I'm glad I didn't. Pruning them now & then having this warmer temperature would only stimulate new growth. Then when & if it freezes, they could be damaged. The last blooms have turn to hips but I think I'll wait to do the winter pruning until after our first freeze. At least I'm getting to enjoy my beautiful hanging baskets as long as it stays warm like this. They are all still blooming nicely.

I think I'm going to create a "travel" journal (oops BLOG) for story & pictures from our trip. I have downloaded all the pictures so maybe tomorrow I can get started on it.

Well, that's all for now....I'm going to go make some popcorn because"The Office" is about to start and I don't want to miss a minute of it.

Until next time........Linda

How did you like the tiny Bluetooth on "The Office?" Dwight's paranoia was hilarious!

Hi, Linda, unlike you I decided to prune most of my rosebushes over the weekend inbetween the showers....then realized that maybe I was too early! I hope they do ok...I love roses...I only had five in the back that I pruned but they were looking pretty spindly already. I left the one in the front alone because it had so much green on it anyways. We'll have to compare notes in the spring....:)

the travel journal/blog sounds like a wonderful idea!!! I have not watched the Office, but I do hear wonderful things about it; maybe after we finish "Lost"; we'll move to that one

enjoy your evening :)

I have always really enjoyed our version of The Office over here. That Ricky Gervais is a comic genius!

I hope you didn't have to get out and drive in this weather! It was CRAZY out there! I was so stressed by the time I got back home that I fell on the sofa and fell asleep.

We haven't pruned our roses yet ... mostly because we've still been behind on our wedding stuff and need to catch up with that first. Sonny will most likely wait for the first freeze before doing anything.

Hi Linda. We are having nice warm weather, too. I've never watched "The Office" but maybe I'll check it out. The travel blog is a good idea :).........

I like the idea of a travel blog, much easier to keep a record of holidays etc. Our wether has been gloomy too, and cold, I'm also a big fan of The Office" although I've not seen the US version.

Take care
