Just a short post to show you the lady in waiting! She's been on her nest since yesterday morning and is very tolerant of us looking over the brick wall ~ I've taken several pictures and started talking to her this morning!! I know ~ I need a life!! I don't have conversations with her but have said 'good morning, Mrs. turkey' several times!! I'm trying to befriend her ~ us girls have to stick together!!

One of the boys suggested we put a camera out there to film the 'coming out' party!! Sounds like a good idea ~ if we do, you'll be the first to see!!

No hooking the last couple of days ~ I think I burned myself out last week with the marathon hooking on the Coxcomb Basket! Yesterday, all those plants I bought got put in pots or in the ground ~ good thing, because we've had a wonderful rain all morning!

Next on my agenda is preparing for one of the dinners we auctioned off in November for our Homebuilders' fund for needy kids. Tomorrow night is the second one ~ dinner for 6 ~ guess I better figure out a menu, hm? We have a partial menu in our minds ~ grilled shrimp, waterchestnuts wrapped in bacon, tenderloin, sauteed mushrooms with bleu cheese and bacon crumbles, maybe a salad of spring greens, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes & balsamic dressing and my famous (not really) Black Forest cake! I think that might do it, actually! I have to go grocery shopping today and get flower baskets to adorn the deck ~ hope I find some nice ones today! Then on Monday, I have a group of gals coming for a luncheon and house tour!! I really don't have that menu figured out ~ hopefully, it will come to me soon!!!

Sounds like I have a lot to do ~ guess I better go do it!! Have a good day ~

Yes you have lots to do. I'm not so sure about a turkey laying eggs in my garden. I have had robins make nests in my planters, but yours takes the cake. Don't work to hard. Happy hooking

She looks so content there, I think it is neat to have a guest you can enjoy watching. You sure keep busy and that menu is making me really hungry.

Hi Linda and Debbie ~ looks like you guys keep late hours like me!! I don't know how much I enjoy this turkey taking up residence but I guess it doesn't take a lot to entertain us!!

It's a happy thing to see Mrs. Turkey there in the garden, keeping her eggs toasty. I hope all of her eggs hatch and survive. As for the dinner and luncheon, good luck. Cooking like that is not my forte but I know you enjoy it.
