OBF OCTOBER SWAP is......

"FABULOUS & FUN x FOUR"

OBFERS, OCTOBER is upon us. We are cleaning up our gardens, we are waiting for the tricksters to knock on our door, we are planning for Thanksgiving and Christmas, we are thinking about what we will be Winter sowing, and the list goes on and on. So much to ponder. So ladies let us keep it simple!

For the month of OCTOBER, you will send FOUR FABULOUS & FUN "SOMETHINGS" in a BUBBLER.

***ONE of the fabulous & fun "somethings" must be related to gardening in some way.

***the other THREE "somethings" can be anything ie candy, your favorite kitchen tool/gadget, a potholder, a Christmas ornament. Yes, whatever turns you on. Keep it simple, fun, fabulous and economical. Just remember, send what you would enjoy receiving!!

***FABULOUS & FUN x FOUR must be sent in a BUBBLER. PRIORITY FLAT RATE BUBBLERS are fine! No boxes!

***Tracking/Delivery Confirmation PLEASE.

***Sign up Deadline OCTOBER 7
***Partners OCTOBER 8
***Please mail by OCTOBER 19

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love BINGO, so yes there will be traditional BINGO for a prize. More later.
I love surprises, so I will have random "whatevers" along the way for prizes. You never know.... You might just win something and not even know you were in contention for a prize.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sign ups begin NOW! FALL in to October..let us have a FABULOUS and FUN time OBFING together!

Thanks!

Annie

Our Bloomin Friends requires that you be a member of OBF in order to participate in this swap. If you would like more information about membership, contact Shirley or Carol.

    Jayeanne, FINALLY, I sent your package out this afternoon. My apologies for the delay!
    Label/DC Tracking #9114901159815396420246...it is in a priority flat rate bubbler, so should be at your place Thursday or Friday...better said, whenever the PO decides to deliver.

    Margo, I bet you are so looking forward to meeting Young Man Brayden......New life, so precious!!!!!!!

    And for the little trick/game I was playing on you.....

    *Jayeanne........nope....
    *Beth.......nope...
    *Margo.....nope.....
    *Shirley.........nope.......................but I am just kidding.....you are correct!!!!!!! LOL! Earlier in the month when my canines picked the first of the four phony BINGO words, "Trickster", I thought for sure one of you would nail me, but nothing! And then #2 "Prank"...nothing from you guys and then #3 "The Joker"...and nothing! Well this morning, my little Lab grabbed "Scary Carrie"...the timing was good. Congratulations Shirley!!!!! You WIN a SUR-PRIZE!!!!!

    Besides BINGO which is still up for grabs, I have another quickie game before the end of the month!

    Happy Evening!

    Sue - as promised ~ and late ~ your package is on its way! Conformation #0307 0020 0000 4013 5339, hope you have it for the weekend :) Mellisa ~ Megin loved her surprise! She recieved shower gel, lotion, lip gloss and a foot scrubby. As for feeling bad about what you sent??? NO, don't even think that - everything is WONDERFUL! In fact, Megin is doing her best to take me into starting a new quilt with her this coming weekend out of the Mickey fabric... I keep telling her that we need to finish her cousins Easter one first. Her thinking is: cousin Jenni and cousin Kayla are both having babies this summer and we need to start on the baby quilts so that they have them when they are born in case the weather gets cold. LOL If that fails she wants a new robe from the pattern you sent - when I said that I didn't have a piece of fleece big enough she comes back with - it can be like Josephs coat of many colors, only a robe! Kids... gotta love'm! Stay warm everyone! Marie

    OBF NEW SWAP OCTOBER "YOUR CREATIVE COOKBOOK"

    Q

    Comments (269)
    Happy Birthday, Erica! Emily, I'm amazed my cookbook reached you so quickly. Annie, you are so generous with the prizes - will be excited to get something in the mail - other than the overflow of catalogs, magazines, junk mail, etc. Annie, poor Emily will be be embarrassed to hold on the the envelope I sent my cookbook in. I only had one that was large enough and it was previously used so I put everything inside and wrapped the used envelope in paper cut from a grocery store bag. Do I get extra points for recycling? LOL Shirley, we may be close to getting some frost, but not tonight. I was upset that my pepper plants which I have tried to care for most of the summer are finally blooming and starting to grow peppers. I think they will be moved into and out of the garage for awhile. I not only want the peppers, but I want to save some pepper seeds! I haven't quite figured out the OBF football game. Some of you know I follow the Gamecocks at the University of South Carolina. They were not having a great year so far and then Coach Spurrier resigned this week and there was an interim head ball coach announced ... but the Gamecocks won their game today so maybe all of this will get straightened out. The teams we played the last two weeks have been very generous providing supplies for the flood victims, bottled water, and other assistance. My husband found a weather web site with a huge number of pictures of the flood. We were not here for most of those days - it looked so horrible. Of course, we worried a lot while we were away, but seeing it may have been worse. We still have water streaming through our horse pasture and it has been warm and sunny all week. We are ready for things to dry out. Well, time for bed here. Enjoy your day tomorrow! Jeanne

    Yeah.....I figured it out, that's good for me. LOL

    Margo-You are killing me with all these sweet baby pictures. My Boss's little girl is 1 year old and I have not seen her since she was tiny. I got on to him the other day about it and he promised to bring her Sunday to see me, can't wait. They live in SC and he drives to NC every day to work so pleased he is driving that far on Sunday for me to see her.

    And one more game!!!!!! Easy as pie!

    "WORLD SERIES BASEBALL, THE FINAL GAME"........

    *Vina, Shirley, Margaret, Jayeanne, Beth, Sue and Margo......pick one of these numbers below. Do NOT pick a number that someone else has chosen.
    *1
    *2
    *3
    *4
    *5
    *6
    *7
    *8
    *9
    *0

    Please post your guess by Saturday, Oct. 26 at Noon Pacific time. Whether some of you play or all 7 of you play....there will be some numbers left over regardless. After the deadline on Saturday, I will put all of the names that are playing in a bowl and all of the remaining numbers in a bowl. I will pick a number and then pick a name....that person will have an additional number, kind of a bonus in that you might have a better chance of winning the game. I will do this until the remaining numbers are gone.

    And what does the number mean? I can only tell you that it will have to do with the FINAL game of the World Series.
    Boston beat St. Louis 8-1 in game 1 of the World Series last night . The FINAL game will be either Sunday (10-27), Monday (10-28), Wednesday (10-30) or Thursday (10-31.)

    Pick your number and maybe you will win a SUR-PRIZE!!

    Good Luck!!

    I am visiting my son in Indiana and forgot to bring my Bingo words with me. I am pretty sure I needed a couple words that came up yesterday and today but I don't think I have Bingo yet. If no one calls the big B, I can check when I get home tomorrow night.

    I had to drive a 61/2 hour drive to get here and dreaded it but it really wasn't too bad. We have been having a good time and I will be sad to go tomorrow but this is just temporary. My son is doing an internship at a company here so will be back at college in January. That is only a 2 1/2 hour drive.

    Hope everyone is having a good weekend. Margo

    ****Lulu picked *2 and then picked Sue
    ****The *5 remains and Lulu has chosen Jayeanne

    We have a BINGO WINNER!!!! Congratulations Vina!! The dogs are thrilled! That bowl of paper was getting a bit boring for them, even though I gave them a yummy something each time they fetched.

    PAY ATTENTION,,,BINGO is not over. There is still an inkling of hope for you (Margaret, Shirley, Margo, Beth, Sue and Jayeanne). There will be a BINGO 2nd place.

    I just looked up Vinas 15 BINGO choices up as I did not know what put her over the top. Anoka, MN....Halloween Capital of the World did the trick. I do know that one other person has that on their list but they still needed one more to get BINGO. SSSSSSSOOOOOO........here is the deal.

    Today, between 5:30-6:00pm PACIFIC TIME approximatley, after I have poured a glass of Vino, after my full day gardening, my Little Black Lab will fetch one more time. If you have BINGO, let it be known. Whoever calls BINGO,first (in case there a few of you) gets a second place sur-prize. Margo, hoping you will be back home in time. Hopefully, all of you read this. Good Luck!

    Morning!

    Annie, Thanks for such a fun month!!

    We've had cold, nasty rain for the last few days. YUCK! I can't believe I'm saying this but, yesterday, I actually saw a snowflake...can't believe it! I'm wondering where the summer has gone.

    Annie, I just love hearing about how your planting cabbage and lettuce right now. Just amazing to me.

    Shirley, how's your mom doing?

    Margo, how's your daughter? And your new grandbaby?

    This month is almost wrapped up. :) Who has November?

    Happy Almost Halloween!!!

    Vina, I forget that you gardeners in other parts of the country can not plant. I started so much lettuce, bok choy, cabbage, favas, sugar snaps, garden peas, parsnips, rutabagas, turnips ect in early October and thought I better get some more in the ground. I have never done parsnips, rutabagas or turnips, so anxious to see what happens on that front.

    Margo, glad you had a good trip and a safe one. How are Elizabeth and Caprice doing?

    Vina, Fabulous and Fun package from Shirley, as always! By the way Vina, what will be your attire on Halloween? If you said, I missed it. Have fun!

    OK, BINGO is a wrap. Congrats again to Vina 1st place and Jayeanne 2nd place.

    Melinda...heads up you are down for November.
    Hopefully Maryanne will check in and see she has December.

    Can't believe this year is almost over....Turkey day will be here soon and then Christmas.

    November - Melinda
    December - Maryanne

    Jayeanne-Congratulations on the BINGO win...we play BINGO at work but I have never won. They have some really neat prizes and they e-mail our words drawn each day.

    Annie-I agree with the others you are the best hostess ever. I really had fun this month and hate some others missed it.

    Had a sad day today...a lot of the Florida residents left to return to Florida for the Winter. I have made so many friends when they joined our local Garden Club. Most will not return until May. I'm debating whether I am going to visit with one of them during January again. The drive was 12 hours long so I'm thinking about flying this time.

    Vina-Mom is doing well, the cast is off her arm but she still struggles with walking. I went to visit her during my lunch hour and she told me to push the wheel chair close to her bed..oh no I thought this was how she fell the last time. I made sure it was way over against another wall. I don't think she will attempt to go that far to get in it.

    Received my prize of a wonderful dish towel today. Something my kitchen is in need of since all of mine are thin and pretty used. Thanks so much Annie.

    Caprice had her second strong chemo treatment last week and did well. A little nausea and that was it. She said she has not missed much work either. They checked the tumor last week and it has significantly shrunk in size.

    Elizabeth is doing fantastic and feels better than she has in a long time.

    Thanks for asking.

    Hope everyone is off to a good start of the week. Spent the day at work putting up three Christmas tree getting them ready for decorating tomorrow. Ugg

    Hi, Lovely Ladies-We are getting a wonderful rain here in SE Iowa-much needed & the temps are in the high 50's & low 60's which is very rare here this time of year. I still haven't received all plants I have ordered so these temps are fine for a little while longer.

    Annie-I received my gift yesterday & thanks. Such a lovely color of green. Seems I have some color of green in every room of my home. I do so agree that you are a great Hostess & it's been fun even if I can only check in every so often. Things have slowed down some & I am thankful for that.

    Glad things are going better for some of you ladies. Life does so get in the way of us doing the fun things we enjoy. I guess we need those times to appreciate the good ones.

    And I am also asking-where has this year gone. I can't believe that Thanksgiving will be soon be here & it's late this year so Christmas is closer to coming. I am thankful for Christmas as it is one time of the year that people are made aware of Jesus & what He has done for us.

    I see the Hostesses are named for November & December. Looking forward to what is coming up!

    Have a wonderful rest of the week & thanks again, Annie, for being such a great Hostess. Blessings, Margaret

    Hello Ladies! I have to say sorry for missing so many of these! They have been great swaps but I couldn't get my computer to post at all on the forums!
    I am thrilled to say that I now have a new computer and will be definitely working on next month. I am not very creative, but will try my best to have some fun with everyone. I have missed you all. Did I say my oldest grandson bought me the computer as a surprise! Wow, it was too!
    Annie, you are a hard one to follow as you always do so good!
    Margo I hope your dgt. is better and what a beautiful baby boy you have!
    I will post for sign-ups tomorrow.
    Happy Halloween everyone!

    Home again. Enjoyed the wedding and all the visiting but the trip was long and we were all happy to be back home. While we were gone there was a heavy frost here. Goodby beans, tomatoes and squash and Hello to a glorious burst of color in the trees. I'll try to post a pic or two in the next few days.
    Annie this has been a fun swap. Many thanks
    Melinda, god to see you back. I had wondered about you

    My package was in the mailbox, (crammed I might add), when I got home from Chicago late last night. Thank you to Sue for a great one too. She included

    Dishtowel, potholders, and oven mitt in a rooster design. I so need all of these things.
    4 packages of breath saver mints, (if she knew me in person, I would think this might be a hint, LOL). I do use these at work all the time since I work with the public.
    A package of tea light candles.
    A calendar with waterfalls on it and although I haven't opened it to check, I do see that I have been to at least two of them that are pictured and want to see if there are others.
    Seeds, sunflower, and two types of nasturtium which are my latest favorite flower.
    and lastly, the cutest little clip on cardinal that is light sensored and sings when the sensor goes off. I love it.

    Thanks Sue for the great package and thanks to Annie for the great swap. I had a nice time playing all month.

    Congratulations to Margo. Her number was *7 and the final score was 6-1 (and the math, 6 + 1 = 7.... LOL!)

    But we have a second place winner. Sue had the *6. The winning team, Boston, scored 6 runs. Congratulations Sue!

    I have one other sur-prize winner....How many "Strikeouts" would the winning team have in THE FINAL GAME? Congratulations to Beth with her *9. Yes, Boston struck out 9 times last night. !
    In fact, Boston now holds the record for post season (all 16 playoff games) strikeouts at 165. In just the six games of the WORLD SERIES, St. Louis struck out Boston 59 times....9 of those last night. Lots of strikeouts by Boston and they still won!

    Margo, Sue and Beth, I will email you when your little sur-prize is headed your way.

    Thanks to all for playing!

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Margo, three sur-prize wins for you this month...not to shabby...LOL!

    Margo, Sue and Beth Congratulations.....Yeah

    Margo if you had not picked the number 7 I would have chosen it. It is my favorite number for God created the world in 7 days and it is the symbol of divine perfection. The whole word of God is founded upon the number seven.

    Beth-Happy to hear you are home and the wedding went well.

    Melinda-Nice Grandson buying you a computer....Looking forward to our next months swap.

    Hi Margaret....always so nice to read your posts. I have gotten into succulents and have them all over the house and in my office at work. It has been so much fun finding the right pots to put them in.

    Can't believe tomorrow is the first day of November...turkey day will be here soon.
