Fall has fell, and it brought some chilly air with it. The BaldMan pulled the hibiscus into the mudroom because there was a chance of frost a few nights ago. I did some quick cleanup out front on Sunday, and brought in the side hose and sprinkler. There is more color in the trees now, … Continue reading There’s Definitely a Nip in the Air
All’s Quiet on Every Front
It was pretty quiet last week. There's not a lot going on here at the moment. Summer is winding down, and autumn begins later this month. I will be heading outside to start doing some garden prep for the coming winter, but even that isn't going to be too intensive this year. Since most of … Continue reading All’s Quiet on Every Front
Not Much Is New
What's new around here? Not a whole lot, really. I planted some little bluestem grasses in a corner of the front hill that seemed a bit bare. The plan is for them to spread and fill in that spot. And some Great St. John's Wort in the shade garden under the dining room windows. I … Continue reading Not Much Is New
Although by the time I saw it, there was nothing to be done. I went outside on Saturday to check the plants, and every single one of the tomatoes on both plants were gone. Gone! Not nibbled on. Not pulled off and half-eaten and left. Gone. Stems broken, like something broke off the groups of … Continue reading Stop, Thief!
A Little Road Trip, A Little Gardening, A Little Weekend Stuff
It was a busy, but productive weekend here in southern NY. The weather was mostly good. A bit humid at times, but it is summer, so that's just part of the package. On Friday, I drove to PA for my uncle's funeral. He was my mother's brother and was everyone's favorite, I think. Aunt Dorothy … Continue reading A Little Road Trip, A Little Gardening, A Little Weekend Stuff
What Day Is It, Again?
Oh, yeah, Tuesday. The days are getting all mixed up again. Not like there is so very much going on, because there really isn't. Or maybe that's the problem- the days are running together because nothing unusual is going on. I guess I just have to keep the calendar close! One of the plant orders … Continue reading What Day Is It, Again?
In the Good Old Summertime
And I have been slacking on the blog again, haven't I? As usual, there isn't really an excuse. Just the same old excuse of "Where did the time go?" The answer is, as usual, I have no idea! Anyway, summer is getting into swing here, and I have been able to bring my laptop out … Continue reading In the Good Old Summertime
What’s Goin’ On?
Well, let's see. The short short story anthology, "Crossed Wires and Other Very Short Stories" drops tomorrow. So, it will be available at just about all the ebook retailers out there. I will update links as I see them go live (or as quickly as I get to it, anyway.) It is already live, and … Continue reading What’s Goin’ On?
Rainy Days and Sundays
Yep, it's another cloudy, gloomy, rainy day. At least, it's trending warmer again and that will continue for most of the week. We may even see some sun! And to top it all off, today is also colonoscopy prep day for me. Yay! But that does give me the chance to preach a bit. <soapbox>When … Continue reading Rainy Days and Sundays
Well, more like fasting food. We started intermittent fasting last week. This past year of being locked down and hunkering inside has not done good things for my weight. Our doctor recommended that the BaldMan try the fasting method and so I am going to try it, also. For those who may not be familiar, … Continue reading Fast Food
