Hope Everyone Got What They Wanted...

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I got lots of goodies!

Hubby and MIL and FIL got me some Polish Pottery.These are the dishes I collect and decorate my kitchen with.



Hubby also got me a flat screen TV for the bedroom,and a new food dehydrator! My old dehydrator died last summer.All you farm girls out there know you need a dehydrator when you are trying to preserve as much as possible of the things you grow.

My sweet Boy got me some yarn and the new Super Mario for the Wii.



I have trouble playing some of the funner Wii games because,lets face it,I am old and the Wii is extremely sensitive and I don't have the reflexes for it! The Boy said you play Mario just like the old one from the 80's. He was right,we have had a lot of fun playing it!

Hubby and The Boy both got an iPod Touch.Hubby got the bigger one with more memory or gigs or whatcha-ma-call-its! The Boy got Hubby lots of accessories to go with his iPod.



Technology is,well, possibly not my strong point! What can I say I am just an old fashioned hermit living with 2 techno geeks!

The Boy also wanted a nice globe,which Nanna and Pop-paw got him.Sigh...my little brainiac,makes a Momma proud when her youngin has a thirst for knowledge!



We couldn't forget the Pooches,Weenie and Rascal. They are anxiously waiting for The Boy to open their treats from Santa Dog!



Rascal is loving this rawhide wreath.That is his big tongue.We say he has a liver tongue,because it looks as big as a piece of liver when he flattens it out like that!



Now I know a lot of folks get the after Christmas blues.Not me.I have a new wish book...



Now I get to start planning for Spring.Spring comes early down here,got to get the garden planned,seeds ordered,hot beds made.....

MY Baker Creek came in the mail this last week also! I will spend many a day perusing this lovely wonder! No Harlequin Romance junk for me! Give me an old fashioned seed catalog any day of the week!

Oh, I especially love the Baker Creek catalog. Did you read all the cool quotes throughout it?

Y'all had a BIG Christmas. I have never has a dehydrator but it's on my wish list. Blog sometime about what all you dry out.

ok I am going to have to see about that seed catalog!

Your pottery is pretty :O)...Looks like you guys had a great time :O)

I spent yesterday reading, reading, reading on the Internet about different gardending questions I had! As you said spring comes real early in East Texas...January we start to plant! I found a great place to get leek starts, really nice ones! Next year I will try to grow my own, this year well to late...The company is in Texas and start shipping to my area January 18th...need to get the kale started... yep its time to think gardens! I am crossing my fingers for a good year in the garden this year!

I am excited you got a food dehydrator :O)... I have one and can do some stuff really well in it, but lots left to learn!

Farmgirl Cyn,

Me too! Seed catalogs and McMurry Hatchery are my favorite reads!

Pricilla,
thanks!

Joanna,
Yes, I read it all! I will blog about my dehydrator!

Texan,
Yep,from now on out it is visions of Spring and seeds!I know what you mean by having a lot to learn.Living so far south has thrown me off on my gardening and I have never had this soil type before.I have to learn how to do a lot of stuff differently! Hopefully mother nature will not try to incinerate us this year in Texas!
