  2. $3.50 when I filled up on Tuesday.
  3. Jeepers! Oh my ! Your house looks wonderful! You got that Lady. Ignore the “I wanna buy” calls. We’ve been here for over 38 years & those calls come in daily. Theives, scammers & flippers, can bite me. Not gonna sell..... unless they wanna give me a couple million. Not gonna happen, ever! Mom is doing better then I expected. We went to Canyon lake yesterday. I fed 2 ducks, mallards, bread from my egg McMuffin. Before they were done, 8 more ducks flew in. Sorry... that’s all I had. But... he named them, Sampson & Delia. Lol. They stayed by our picnic table all
  4. @euphrasyne, I’m making a couple loaves today, I’m going to add a touch of sugar & see what happens.
  5. Well.... guess what? It should be pushing 100°F tomorrow. Yeah, summer is around the corner. Harvested more fava beans & tomatillos. Gotta do the beets. The tomatoes that grew in January are still only lightly orange. They are rotting on the vine. Thinking of trimming them and hoping for the best, but with temps soaring, I wish they would do something, but it is doubtful. The roses & irises are beginning to bloom, and so is the camomile. Parsley and thyme are growing, looking forward to harvesting them. Mom is getting more active, she’s looking health
  6. I was raised on an 80 acre farm. Moved to a big city, then a bigger city, then, our little town. In the 35+ years we’ve been here, Phoenix is pushing closer, the town annexed land and expanded, 10 miles away. Some people still have goats, foul, cows & donkeys, but as the younger generation grows up, they don’t seem interested in the upkeep. Our newest neighbor got chickens again this year. I had to catch & return an escapee, last week. Lol. A friend made me a “chicken grabber” which worked ideally. I’ll have to post a picture of it. We turned part of t
  7. Extremely windy today. I should open my van doors, like Mt_Rider & blow the dog fur out. Except it is carpeted and even the vacuum doesn’t get it out. After another dentist appointment, took it easy yesterday and made another skirt. Mom wanted to watch me put in the side seam pockets...gotta have pockets. Did laundry, reading, swept up the dog fur, finished the pull out side shelves for the roll top desk and a new cutting board for the kitchen, and now, we are waiting for a customer. Then, I will do the monthly bookkeeping, make the post office run, figure out ‘
  8. Good Morning! A moment of quiet time to read. Hope everyone is staying safe. MIL is doing good. We managed to find a few of her TV shows to watch, including her local news-on line. Love it or List it, has become a favorite of hers, because she is binging from season 1 episode 1, laughing how young they look and how much building styles have changed. Back to work here today. Harvested & processed the fava beans, last week, need to get out there & pick again. Finish the laundry from Sat. cleaning day, get DH’s fishing license, and, and, and, whatever else tha
  9. Flowers from the fields... in the Valley..... ..... plane?.... good grief, now I HAVE to re-read it.... Edited to add: Things of Wagons Ho, that pop up daily.... I remember writing, we found some alfalfa in a field.... well, collecting manure from the cow pastures, here, for my mulch & garden, sprouted a couple of alfalfa plants. Remembering our adventure, I harvested the seeds and replanted them, every year. Last year, there was enough to share with DH’s gardening friend. This year, it has spread 10 fold. Every day, I see the

  12. Happy happy birthday to up you!
  13. This was sent to me with the comment, “ Is this a joke?” IDK... but, it scares me.....
  14. Littlesister, please give yourself a little break from all you have been doing. Yes, tons of paperwork, tons of phone calls, tons of dealing with everything and stuff that has to be done... but, take a moment or two, sit down and just forget everything for a bit. All that stuff will still be there to do, after, you get a brief moment for yourself. I’ve watched my mom, MIL and countless others, deal with loosing their loved ones. Everyone outside, think, you gotta do it right away, all the this & that, however, when you take the time for “you”, things focuses. 1st, most impor
  15. Home safe. Winds were shaking everyone on the road. It was somewhat of a tail wind, the van got 28 mpg. Today is house cleaning day. Getting ready to get at it.
  16. Sounds tasty! Thanks MM, for the recipe. I’m awake, did my reading, and pondering today’s travel back home. Radar looks good and we should have a tail wind, to increase milage. DH said he will pick up oriental food for dinner, so I won’t have to cook. He’s such a sweetheart. My friend got to her journeys end, safely, yesterday evening.
  17. I don’t recall where exactly I heard this.... ‘...they will be issuing passports, ID’s, etc. for people who get the vaccine, in order to travel and meet together...’. MIL’s CoC are going to resume their, in-person meetings, with only vaccinated members. I overheard her asking if she would not be allowed to go, because she can not take it. IDK how they responded. She said the members who have received it, have gotten really sick, and still haven’t completely recovered.
  18. My friend traveling, said I40 was closed, due to heavy snow, drove through snow, sleet, hail, winds from a tornado, and rain. May God protect her on her journey. Amen. I had some side winds, not bad, then, as I got to TX, traffic stopped for a few minutes. The sign said lanes were closed, but it wasn’t, just slow going for 10 miles. 15 mph. A couple of accidents..... yikes! Gas is outrages , $3.28 at home, $3.50 half way here.
  19. Big hugs & prayers for everyone. Stay safe. I have been busy trying to get everything in order for MIL. Still need to put some hooks on the ceiling in her bedroom, for her hanging plants. She will be here until after Mother’s Day, and doesn’t want them to die. Increased the size of the water closet, got it painted. Found a bathtub shower chair at WM, so I don’t have to bring in the cast iron patio chair every day. It was the last one they had. Made room in my closet and dresser drawers for her. Turned the living room chair sideways, so she will be able to hav
  20. Thanks Jeepers. Definitely going to make some soon.
  21. Found this article about Tumeric: https://webmd.com-us.health/diet/health-benefits-turmeric#1
  22. Mt_Rider, I only pay CL with paper checks. Tried the on line stuff, back in 2005, they messed it up, I got furious, and started sending them a check. I didn’t realize our home landline could be on Cox. They ported it over and... it is still set at call forwarding, and, I don’t need the phone connected to get my calls. If I choose, I can connect & call out, if necessary, it’s unlimited long distance now. Nice. . Not that I get anything other than spam calls.
  23. Tsunami warnings... https://thenewsandviews.com/three-powerful-earthquakes-topping-8-1-magnitude-jolt-new-zealand-coast/?__s=ja0u76lzlqp8zhd86fma
  24. Good grief! So very very sorry for everyone’s losses. Praying for everyone, God knows! 2021 isn’t what we wanted. Been trying to keep up with everything. Turns out our internet provider, Century Link, has been blocking me from getting here. We upgraded with them to 5 G, but, I was still being blocked. Ordered Cox, and now I have no problem accessing our site. Sigh. Tested it, they blocked me, turned off the net, re-connected with the other... boom, I was here in 1/2 a second. So much going on here, it’s a challenge even turning on my computer. I will try to be
