    Will be a very peacefull quite day for me…………..just me and the dogs, with the move the kids are not here for Christmas this year and Dh is in PNG.

    First Christmas in my life that I;m not cooking up a storm :woohoo:

    Hope all my ALS family have a wonderfull day :hug:

    Oh, roundthebend, we are having a quite one as well. Our youngest only has one day off so not enough to come over and the oldest has other plans this year so just DH and me plus one friend. The quietest we have ever had so it will be unusual but nice not to do the big cook up for a change. Have a nice one.


    A Christmas Poem for Gardeners

    T’was the weekend before Christmas, and all through the yard,

    Not a gift was being given, not even a card.

    The tools were all hung, in the garage with care,

    With hopes that St. Nicholas soon would repair.

    The shovel with blade all rusty and cracked,

    The pitchfork still shiny, but handle it lacked.

    When out on my lawn, (it’s brown and abused)

    I could see poor old Santa, looking confused.

    No list had been left for Santa to see,

    No gardening gifts were under the tree.

    But wait there’s still time, it’s not Christmas yet,

    And gardening gifts are the quickest to get.

    You can forget the silk tie, the fluffy new sweater,

    Give something to make the garden grow better.

    If she wants a gift shiny, then don’t be a fool,

    It’s not a dumb diamond, but a sparkling new tool.

    If fragrance is listed you can forget French perfume,

    It’s a pile of manure that’ll make gardeners swoon.

    Give night crawlers, not nightgowns, a hose that sprays water.

    (Anything for the kitchen is not worth the bother.)

    Give a great gift that can dig in the dirt,

    It’s better than any designer-brand shirt.

    Now look quick at Santa, this guy’s not so dumb,

    Under his glove, he hides a green thumb.

    His knees are so dirty, his back how it aches,

    His boots stomp on slugs, (he gives them no breaks).

    The guy works only winter, you can surely see why,

    For the rest of the year it’s as easy as pie.

    He has elves plant through spring, pull weeds in the summer,

    In fall they all harvest, but winter’s a bummer

    And so Christmas gives Santa a part-time employment,

    ‘Till spring when the blooms are his real enjoyment.

    So ask the big guy for garden gifts this year,

    Seeds, plants and tools, Santa holds them all dear.

    You see, malls may be crowded, vendors hawking their wares,

    But visit a nursery, stress-free shopping is there.

    Now Santa’s flown off, to the nursery he goes,

    And his voice fills the night with loud Hoe! Hoe! Hoe!

    Borrowed from the Organic Gardens Network


    That is a great poem, certainly the right place to put that one up.


    :clap: Love it BB, going to print it out and hang it in the back dunny to hint for next years pressy.

    Merry Christmas to all you lovely ALSers, hope you all have a great day. :kiss: :hug:

    DH got his little vac to keep the kitchen floor tidy .


    Half an hour to go until Christmas in QLD.Hope you all have a wonderful day.We will have the WHOLE immediate family arriving tomorrow, first time ever and not likely to be repeated for quite a while I’d say.So lots of preparation been happening…….the tree was the last job …….not happy to find mice had managed to get into the decorations box and the tinsel STINKS!!!! 🙁 🙁 🙁 Not possible to replace it so generous amounts of Glen 20 hopefully to the rescue!! Happy New Year to everyone as well. :wave:
