On my mind ...

14 October 2011
This is a Friday photo feature that anyone with a blog can join. To take part, post a photo on your own blog, write a short caption explaining it, and link it back to here from your blog by saying you're part of "On my mind". Please write a new post, don't link to an older one. When you've done that, come back here and add a comment below, with a link to your blog.

I'll be tidying up after a very busy week this morning and attending a meeting this afternoon. But tomorrow, I'll be tending to these loofas and that is what's on my mind today.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend doing what you love. Thank you for visiting me this week. I'll see you again soon.


  1. Hi Rhonda,
    I love reading about the loofah's you grow and the post about setting soap inside a loofah was particularly interesting. I think it's time I planted some. My Friday On My Mind photo is about the first tiny egg one of my hand raised chicks laid this week.
    Happy Friday - Jen


  2. My finished quilted printer cover is on my mind today.


  3. Please check out my soon to be lovely garden at


    as always Rhonda, you are an inspiration xx

  4. Hope you have a less busy weekend.

    On my mind is history repeating itself.


  5. I know I'm not supposed to refer back to older posts, but I'm working today, and don't have time to post, and I did such a relevant post this week about buying in bulk to save money, very relevant to your blog posts this week, and I linked back to your post at the time of writing it.

  6. Hi Rhonda and everyone joining in.

    I find loofas quite an interesting object :) I enjoy reading about them on your blog Rhonda, before I started reading here I had never heard or seen one before :)

    Today on my mind is getting a mini break away, getting crafty and a homemade gift (busy times :) )


    I hope you enjoy a lovely weekend, Regards, Ruth

  7. For a minute there, I wasn't quite sure what I was looking at!

    It reminded me of this photo of Japanese "gooeyducks".


  8. I'm looking forward to the weekend myself; even if it's only Saturday. On my mind is attaining shark fabric for a sweet nephews Christmas quilt...

  9. Fox and how horrible they are is on my mind today. Over the last week or so they have killed 4 chooks and a few chickens so today will be spend trying to foxproof a pen.


  10. I love luffa's! Way to go on growing your own - I must get into that again, I have only ever had one grow!

    On my mind today is my quilting and sewing activities last weekend, and what I am doing this weekend to finish off my quilt... http://myplaceforspace.blogspot.com/

  11. They look wonderful and I enjoyed the choko post this week too.

    On my mind is the wonderful WA coastline again and a kite-boarder in action.

    Have a restful weekend(didn't I say that last Friday!)

    Love from Sue


  12. Speaking of loofas, have you tried eating them? When they're about the size of a continental cucumber. Delicious added to a stir fry for instance. Purple on my mind today though at snapshotsofbeauty.blogspot.com I'm heading up to Hervey Bay for a reunion of sorts. Safe trip to all on the roads.

    I'm joining in today as I'm thinking of all the ways I can save money and as always you are an inspiration Rhonda!

    Thanks for the opportunity to join in, x x Rach

  15. hey, it's been ages since I've loofahed! thanks for the idea that one can grow them at home!


  16. Hi Rhonda, On my mind today is a new knitting project using some lovely mohair yarns...

  17. Hi Rhonda, those loofahs look interesting! I'm looking forward to getting more time this weekend to read through your older posts for useful information.

    What is on my mind at the moment is Colour and Moods:


  18. I have a relative who grows loofahs so I'll have to organise a swap with her this year as I'd love to make up some natural bath time pressies.
    On My Mind today are some bargains I've found and been given

  19. That reminds me, must get around to planting my loofa seeds for next year.


  20. Hi Rhonda,

    On My MInd this Friday is Christmas. I'm after some ideas for handmade, homemade Christmas gifts. http://all--in--the--family.blogspot.com

    Read your posts every day....very inspirational!

  21. Hi Rhonda,

    I wonder if loofahs would grow here, perhaps not, I would presume they are a tropical/wet area plant.

    On my mind today is being a winner :)


  22. Hi Rhonda, just wanted to say how much I love your new pic, you look lovely.


  23. I like the new picture of you! Too cold here to grow loofahs, but the pumpkins are nearly ready, so that is some pretty good compensation :-)

    Have a good weekend.

    AM of the bread

  24. Ah, it's a bit of a project, a secret project...can you work it out?


  25. Hi Rhonda
    Lovely pic of you! On my mind today is my quilting which is nearly done and the lovely ladies who are teaching me ! http://serenassecretgardens.blogspot.com/

  26. On my mind today is Telethon weekend and the generosity of the Australian people

  27. It thought I should balance the estrogen here and add to this.

  28. growing loofahs?? that's a 1st i have heard of this. can you please point me to the post for this?

    on my mind: time :(


  29. Hi Rhonda, lovely to check in with this Friday feature again, after a while away.

    Today, my wonderful kitchen is on my mind

  30. Today my sick lil tummy is on my mind...althought I'm doing all i can to take my mind off it :)


  31. Here is California it is still, Friday, so on my mind is what I see from my chair - my flowers fading. Asters and Goldenrod thoughtsofgrace.wordpress.com

    My daughter (Melissa) and I have been discussing home schooling her daughter (my grand daughter, she is 5years old). Melissa still has a long way to go with school and a lot of work still ahead of her (trying to keep her 3.8 GPA) and then there is still medical school. (five or six years left all together) The public school system is 5 days a week, so this would not permit her the time she needs with her daughter around the hours she spends on her own schooling, we decided to home school so that I can help her continue to juggle her schedule. If she were home schooled I could handle Sidney's classes and rotate the schedule to match the hours Melissa is at university every day. This would also help with the transition (for Sidney) when she does eventually move to her next school, which is about an hour away. Melissa is planning on keeping with the home schooling (she has found homeschooled communities in the city she will have to move to, this isn't for a while though) so this would be on going for Sidney. She would not be uprooted, so to speak. We would like to start the process as soon as possible. I have been searching the Internet and it can be somewhat (well very) confusing on what program to go with. I was hoping someone you knew out there could help her and I get started with a good solid program. Any help would be greatly appreciated, we live in the Midwest USA. Thanks Kim

    My e-mail address is countrylife@centurylink.net or my blog is http://www.jimandkimscountrylife.blogspot.com/

    Sorry this is so long and I hope this is where I should ask you at
    have a good weekend

  33. Kim, I have no idea about homeschooling in the USA. Maybe someone else can help you.
