Busy week ahead

I suppose it goes without saying much about it - I should have thrown the Steam Buggy in the trash today, but that sneaky fellow came before I woke up.

I took this picture of a Downy in my fig before the storm and big freeze Saturday night. You could still see the tiny figs that hadn't matured and the green tips of the new growth buds - I'm pretty sure they are frozen now, it was 14 F this morning. BTW, the bird feeder was totally obliterated during the storm.
 DH bought me some of these truffles - best I've ever had! Too bad there were only 20 of them in that tube. Doubt he will buy more - seeing that I bought 4 different boxes of jellied chocolates for the holidays.
 Progress report on Tom's produce. The fruits are ripening faster now, no matter the size. The lower sun shines directly on them for about 3 hours in the afternoon, I believe that's helping. Will have another sandwich before long!
 I'm anxious for Christmas now - DH ordered me a footed planter to put in front of the window and I've ordered some Tiny Tim cherry tomato seeds. Tom will have to hurry up and finish so I can start my little 'garden' by the window. Ha Ha.

There is one little glitch in all this ordering (Dog treats, dog toys, batteries, computer battery, and garden stuff. Son says not to open anything before Christmas. He has ordered gifts for us from Amazon too! With no way to tell what he sent ... we will have to wait to open anything unless we can devise some sort of plan. So glad that my chocolate jellies came today and I tracked it - was the only thing that came today!

    1. Your temperatures bounce around like ours do! Hail is always an unwelcome surprise, I hope you didn't have any damage.
      Am getting pretty desperate for the computer battery!

  2. I may have said this before, but I am jealous of your tomatoes!

    1. I don't know if I should say I'm sorry or what. Could have been a fluke or maybe it's because I keep it company all day. I wish you would give it a try in your den or if Mrs C. would allow one in your room, instead of outside where all the bugs are.

  3. What, pray tell, are jellied chocolates?

    1. Fruit flavored jelly (not as sweet) covered in chocolate. Usually in a stick form or a small rectangle. I am currently into the blueberry flavored ones. (Grin)

  4. I satisfied my craving for a BLT. I'll be okay for a while now.

  5. I never liked waiting to open presents! I have always subscribed to what I call a "progressive Christmas" where you open things as the holidays progress! Happy waiting, you're truly an example for me to follow! :-)

    1. Unless I come up with a solution, I don't believe I have a choice. Ha Ha. I got my jellies though, so I'm happy enough for now!

  6. Your tomato plant just keeps on going, doesn't it?

    That is quite a dilemma with not being able to open any of the boxes until Christmas because of not knowing which are gifts. Someone should clue Amazon to stamping red bows on boxes that aren't ordered by the recipient. Seems like their computer system would be capable of doing that one little step.
