Through the Garden Gate 2012

Through the Garden Gate with Dollie and Jonalyn

The Southern Meadow Community Garden is on its way to a bountiful harvest. All the hard work in preparing the soil, planting, weeding, watering, weeding, watering, weeding, is now beginning to pay off.

In late April, eight of the residents signed up to work a plot. Since it was first come, first choice, everyone strived to be on time in order to pick a plot closest to the water wagon.

In May with the frequent rains, this decision doesn’t seem so important. However, come July and August, carrying the water buckets in 90°+ heat is a tough job.

The first yellow squash, tomatoes, radish, lettuce, zucchini, spinach, and pepper always seem to taste the best.

It won’t be long until we gardeners will be sharing our bounty with our neighbors. Watch for freebies in the clubhouse!

Parade of Homes

I find that I am constantly trying to catch up on all my blog posts.....LOL I just can't keep up with everything!  On Sunday July 8th Southern Meadow had a Parade of Homes.  We opened our hearts and our community up to everyone who has ever contacted us about living at Southern Meadow.  It was a day where you could walk through every model, watch an array of tournaments and best of all get to know the people that make Southern Meadow what it is.  A great bunch of people who know how to have a great time!

Our first event started at 9 am and it was the fishing tournament.  The winner was Chip who caught a 2 lb 10 oz bass.  One day, we are going to beat Delaware's Largemouth Bass Record!

At 11:30 the Texas Hold Em Tournament began in the poker room...

The winner was George!!  It was the shirt!

We followed the poker tournament up with lunch of yummy fried chicken, baked beans and mac n cheese!  Our company included people who are moving in very soon meeting new neighbors.

Lunch was followed by a horseshoe tournament the guys went out and braved the heat!

And worked up quite a sweat tossing the horseshoes!

Everyone braved the hot weather!

Ended the day with a refreshing dip in the pool


Today at 2 pm join us to learn all about HYPNOSIS.  Hypnosis???  You ask why would I want to learn about that?  Well hypnosis is a deep relaxation in which the subconscious mind is extraordinarly receptive to positive thoughts and suggestions.  You can modifiy your behavior and replace your old beliefs that you no longer need or want with new ones you desire.  Just think about harnessing the power of your own subconscious mind!  Quick and effectively resolve issues, improve performance and focus!  Learn how to relax and benefit from the power of hypnotherapy.  Whether you want to stop smoking, manage weight, fears and phobias, self-confidence, life altering events, pain management and/or sleep problems.  Come on out and let's LEARN something new.  See you at 2 pm!
