Another Bed to make

Post  CindiLou on 5/1/2011, 12:23 am

I was at my cousin/bf/sister person's last night. Her 18 daughter and baby daddy are fixing up a place together. She had been reading the All New book I gave her mom. Mom won't make Dad convert but she loves the idea. She is a vegetarian. So it makes sense lol...

Anyway, I told her and her honey that when they get moved in I will give them a set up bed for a house warming gift. I figure it will last longer than a mixer! They will be in the house by the end of May. Perfect for planting warm weather crops.

She has a 1 1/2 year old and of course, baby daddy thinks she needs something to keep her busy this summer! I told him every man with that attitude should have to take care of a toddler WITHOUT HELP for a week! That would fix that attitude!

Rofl..hubby laughed at me back in January. I went to three Dollar Generals and bought their books. I passed them out to anyone that I felt was interested...or should be lol...I even sent one to my sister in Dallas, Tx. So far three people are trying it this year! Humm...I need more books! I had to put an address label in the last one I had so I knew NOT to give it away!

What a marvelous house warming gift.

Glad you are spreading the word of SFG.

Cindi-Lou, I took a cue from you and plan to give a new friend some balcony boxes with Mel's Mix as a housewarming gift. They have a perfect balcony for a tiny little garden. I will give her a couple of them all set up and ready for seeds and/or plants later this month and teach her about SFG.
