Utter chaos

These KONG coleus pictures did not load in the order I wanted them. Just goes right along with the way life is right now. And they really have nothing in common with the title. They are just what I found on my phone and mailed to myself so I could go through the long process of fixing a read only file and changing it to one that the picture file will let me save, copy, rename and file.
Oh, did I mention this has been one L.O.N.G. week? School during the day and parent / teacher conferences in the evening. TWO snow storms with slippery, sloshy roads. Bell practice, the true highlight of the week, and performance this morning in church. I tend to be a little nervous, but when the page doesn't turn correctly, I lose my place. Not a pretty sound from my bells at that moment.
My dear SIL and Sarah gifted me with the latest Windows system. This means NEW. Details. Can't find my picture files. Didn't transfer my bookmarks. The house is a disaster...REALLY. No exaggeration. Sarah brings a new toy, a Cricut 2, that we MUST play with and learn. But it won't talk to MY computer...only Sarah's. So why am I sitting here posting?? It's because I've lost my mind.

Anyway, the lovely little coleus flowers got pinched off all summer so the lovely leaves would grow bigger and bigger on the KONG coleus. I brought the plant in before the frost and snow and am going to try to keep it alive over the winter. We shall see...

This week will be better. It will be better . . .

Fall Rose Bouquet

 It's official now...
Indian Summer!!
Before we had our first killing frost last Friday, I went out to cut my mini roses for a bouquet.
My mom just loved them!
My plants come from the grocery store and I buy them when they are around $3--$5. They are very hardy and bloom well when I fertilize them. I'll be missing them during the drab days of winter.
