About Me

My photo
I'm a mother of four grandmother of seven and great grandmother of one. I have many hobbies and interests but gardening and rug hooking are my main interest at the moment. I live with my husband in the house that we built with the help of my brothers and have been married for 51years.

Today I spent most of the afternoon working in the office and because I didn't get enough sleep  ((I went to bed at 12:30 am))  I a bit brain dead. I'm drowning in piles of papers. I haven't been able to train my husband to put papers away once he's finished with them. He piles them everywhere there a square inch throughout the house. Well, I'm exaggerating a bit but not by much.

So I'm taking a break to show you an update on my Bell Pepper  and begonias seedlings. I'm only showing a small portion of my begonias as the rest were under plastic bags to keep them moist.

I will have to transplant the begonias as there are two to each pots.

Tomorrow evening I will be posting my Grandmother's Trunk Challenge rug as the deadline is on the 15th of April. I'm anxiously waiting to see what other members of our group have come up with. This is so exciting. I feel like it's Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.  JB


  1. Gosh, you're plants look healthy and ready to go! Everything is greening up here in NE! Love it! My husband also puts everything where it will land...God love him! I can't wait to see your Grandmother's Trunk Challenge rug! I know it will be great!

  2. well you are going to have some peppers for sure. I hate paper work and will do it only when it is piled as high as your eye.

  3. Plants are looking good Julia. I can hardly wait to see your rug!

  4. I am so anxious to see your rug. Your plants look great. I have some dwarf sunflower seeds and I am going to start them inside next weekend. I don't have a green thumb so it could be a waste of time.

  5. Your peppers look wonderful. I can't wait to see your rug. I will be checking it out in the morning.

  6. We have the 'paper problem' at our house too. I tell my son that someday he will find my cold dead body buried under a pile of recipes, magazines, unpaid bills and notes to myself! LOL!
    Can't wait to see the rugs!!!

  7. Julia - your plants look nice and healthy! I bet you can't wait to get them in the ground!

    Looking forward to seeing your Grandmother's trunk challenge!

    Take care and have a great day!

  8. I was hoping you would show us your peppers. I bought some the other day from Lowes to plant and their not as pretty as yours.
    Now to find a place to plant mine. I have never planted bell peppers before so I am excited about it.

  11. Wow! YOur pepper plants look amazing! I think that I must need a second bathroom so that I can give mine more light and heat! Actually, I think that I need a second bathroom so that there aren't always lineups at the one that we have ;-D

  12. Jackie, I have enough pepper plants for you. I didn't plant hot peppers as I still have some in jars and lots in the freezer. Mom
