Went out to pour my Coffee, the Gardens looked so nice I had to get a catch up Photo first Thing
That First Lettuce Crop I planted in Garden One is really going to down, need to Harvest some more
Maybe I could make some 'Wilted Lettuce' with a bit of that, need some Bacon though
Well now, says it is going to be a Cool Day all Day... 67 at 7 a.m. Topping at 73, that comfy
And says Rain Showers but looks bright ut there at 7 a.m. Wonder if I should wade out back for a look?
Out into the Cloudy cool Morning, a trip to the Dumpster with an empty Jug... Am I out of wine already?
On around back for a look, no new Pumpkin Bloom but a second Vine climbed up the Cage
So I popped it loose and layed it on the ground, thinking it would do better there
Back around front and a look from the Walk up next to the Deck, had to get a Photo
Most everything looking fine down there, but the Pepper Plants are gone
Still have a few small Tomatoes trying and some more Eggplant Blossoms coming on
Drifting into the Afternoon again, I tried to go out a bit earlier to work on my Stairway Planter
But we were having a misty Rain so I had to put that off again, maybe on Tuesday?
So, 2:30 p.m. usually my Margarita time but I have put them off lately and just sipping a bit of Wine
Seems the Margarita was making me sleepy too early and I want to stay up a bit longer to make the Night shorter
So, check on what's for Dinner, pour a Glass of Wine and try to finish off another Day
But then late in the Day... or Evening... I noticed more wetness in the Hall Carpet... HUH?
Opened the Door where the Furnace and A/C are and what? Water around the Drain for the A/C in there
Maybe the Drain stopped up?, I called the Complex Emergency Number, Hey Tom, I got a leak
Told him what I saw, he said 'I'll call you back', he called me back and said a Plumber would be on the way... in TWO HOURS!
DAYUM! it was 7 p.m then... I have to stay up until 9 p.m. or later? MEIN GOTT!
Oh well, back to the TV but wanting to hit the sack, time passed on but finally crept to 8:30
I had the window Cam on and saw someone approaching my Door, got up and opened it just as he knocked
He came in and I showed him the disaster area, he checked in the Closet and all the pipes there
And checked to see that the Drain was not stopped up, but... the Pipe from my A/C was not in the Drain!
The water was bypassing the drain and seeping out to the Floor, I had not checked in there for that
Then I checked my Peanut Brittle and found it wasn't very 'Brittle', was that the Honey, or not cooking it long and Hot enough?
But I gave it a Taste, quite good! But gooey, that is what I do not like about Honey
So I pryed it from the Foil I poured it on to set, then made little Dabs on some Waxed Paper for Nibbles
Drifting on after 2 p.m. and I needed a few things from the Price Chopper, headed that way in the Misty Rain
Cashed in my earlier $25 Win and bought $25 more, got my goodies and headed back
Unloaded and scratched my Tickets, Hah! Two $15 Wins, so that makes $10 Profit for the Day
3 p.m. Time to give up on the Computer and think about what's for Dinner and it was already plated
More of those Beets, Eggplant and Beef, but I needed Gravy for my Beef and now have that
So TV and Salad time, then a Glass of Vino Tinto and hunt for a Movie before I hot up Dinner
On through TV News Time and Dinner Time, peeked out the Door at 6 p.m. and it was pouring Rain
Back to the TV and Movie Time cree[ing on toBed Time, peeked out the Door again at 7 p.m.
And it was still pouring Rain, I was going to water Sunday but skipped it, Mother Nature then did it for me
Then on to Concert Time and Curtain Down timeand off to Beddy Bye... Good Night...
And the Weather says Cool Morning, Hot Afternoon from 68 to 90, Oh Well, can't last forever
7 a.m. had all my Morning Computer running around done, time to head out for a look, not expecting much
And, no new Pumpkin Bloom and few to come it looked like, nothing else new in the Garden Beds
Back around front, looked like the Morning Glory Vines were checking out
So I cut them down and finished them off, not a very successful planting this Year
Moving right along... Started some of my Cooking for the Day... I had a couple Cups of Peanuts
And a half Cup of Honey in the Cupboard for a Year! (well it never spoils)... What to do with that
Had a thought...'Peanut Brittle'... Never did that, how you do that? Looked up 'Honey Peanut Brittle'
And there it was... and didn't look difficult and I had all the Stuff... so I made it... TA DAH!
Oh yeah, I dropped Two Pepper Seeds in the non-producing Pod in Garden Two yesterday
And lookee there, One seed popped up overnight, is that fast or what? Well bring on the Pepper
Then I saw the Neighbor come in from his Cab Ride from the Doc, went out to say Hi
A little Talk and then I trotted over and picked that one and only Eggplant for this Year
Several started but dried up and fell off, this may be the Only one for this Year
A little small but I wanted to try it before something happened to it
A Glass of Vino Tinto, some TV and then back to the Kitchen to tend to those Beets
Out of the Hot Pot, a rinse and then held then under the Tap and rubbed off the Skins
Well done and the Skins came off easily, then into a Bowl to store for the Night
Maybe some Beets for Dinner on Saturday?
A peek out the front Window at 7 a.m. looks like an invite to check the Back Gardens
So, no Bloom on the Pumpkin Wednesday, will there be one today? Let's go see
Surprize... Surprize! Two new Pumpkin Blooms, looking pretty but not productive
Again drifting through a quiet Day, what's for Dnner later? Beats me, what we got in the Fridge and Freezer?
Some of this and that but how about something new? Let's go check the Price Chopper
In the Veggie Department, Hey! some really nice looking Radishes, grab some, some Sweet Onions too
Nice big hunk of Broccoli on Sale, yeah, and how about a nice Head of Cabbage for Slaw?
Next way back to the Meat Department, some nice Beef Chuck Roast on Sale, got a Two Pound Plus One
That's all for now, headed back across the Lot to the Bank for a catch up Photo of the new Ace Hardware
Coming along nicely, wonder when we can drop in for a Visit? Probably be a good while yet
Another Glass of Wine, more boring News, not interested in the main subject of the Day, gimmee some real News
Lasted out the final Hour, Beep Beep Beep, shut off the Oven and took out the Roast to cool and rest
And... After I had my Coffee and Juice I finished my Computer stuff, had an early Shower
Then took out some Trash, headed out back to check things and nothing much going on
No new Pumpkin Bloom, a couple Tomatoes may be ready tomorrow, nothing else
And then off to the Price Chopper, all out of Vino Tinto, got that and my Lottos
Back to scratch off another dinky $5 Win and that was all... NUTZ!
So, checking Facebook, I posted Photos of my Lettuce on Tuesday... Got a comment on it
From Don Kixmiller, a Nature Sanctuary Friend and he said: "Great Pics! But are they Real??????"
So! something interesting to do, set up the Camera in the Kitchen, got a minute or so of new Video of the Third Garden
Then back to the Vidro Editor, inserted that into the first take and away we went to render and upload again
Later watched that revision on the TV, serves the purpose rather well at that
On with the usual Evening, more TV, some TV, another Mivie and sme more Music
A final sip of Wine and then off to Bed all over again
And here's a Photo I didn't post on Monday, looks like something got into into my Pepper Plant
Well it was running out of steam for the Season anyway, also the One next to it, so I clipped them off
And I got a call from Pat while at the Fast Stop, coming by for another Movie session in the Afternoon
Then on to Breakfast and Free from Navru, he gave me some more Donuts and Cookies
Time eased on to 1 p.m. and knock, knock, knock... My Visitor came in and we had a seat
No TV, no Video, we just sat and did some catch up chat, and then I put on my new Roofing Video
Just a bit tedious but mildly interesting, Then she wanted to watch another Episode of Bobby Flay
I went to the Kitchen to pop some Popcorn for the Movie later, then came back to endure the rest of Bobby
Then we went through my list of Movies I had recorded for her, she likes Steve McQueen and Clint Eastwood
She chose the Thomas Crown affair and we watched that all Afternoon, it's a long one
Then about 4:30 p.m. or so it was over and we listened to some Music from You Tube and then it was farewell Time
So then she headed up that Hill for Home and I headed to the Kitchen to see what I could dig up for Dinner
Decided to use some Lettuce I had clipped off from my Aerogarden on a Ham and Cheese and Tomato Sandwich
That with a Glass of Milk and some more TV ended my Day and I toddled off to Bed and what Dreams again!
Realy involved and detailed about adventures I actally never had... where does that stuff come from?
Well, that's more than enough of Tuesday, let's go use up Wednesday
