Where in the world is Miss Eff????

Currently, I am surrounded with piles of stuff ........ and I am under the impression that this is what they call organizing! Not so much!!!

But I am digressing already!

Every so often, people will ask me what do I do in the winter when there are no flowers. My stock answer is ....... breath. But most people would like to see me do something productive. So this is for them.

Well ....... maybe not. It might be for me. Someone told me yesterday that I needed a planner. I think I need a secretary. Now. To get me out of the house on time!!

This is where you will find Miss Eff .... maybe. Unless she double books .... or forgets. So remind her periodically. And if you booked an event with Miss Eff and its not here............call her. She needs help!!!

Wait till you see April's calendar............. its worse!!!!!

Well Miss Effie, I would say grass does not grow up your feet or should I say snow!! at this time of year. Stay Busy, Stay Young should be your motto.

Oh my goodness. So busy for you but lots of fun possibilities for us. I am sure I will see at the Freight House but was wondering where the Scott County Extension Office is located. I am determined that both Thomas and I will learn how to knit in 2010. Hope we can make it the class.

P.S. I think I still owe you a cookie recipe. Sorry about that.
