  1. ....and it’s still raining....  Wow!  We haven’t had this much rain since April. It’s awesome!  The garden is proofing!  :hapydancsmil:

     

    This afternoon, I had enough time to open the washer, after that dust storm.. Yup, you guessed it, everything was coated with dirt, had to wash it over again.  Did manage to have enough time to do another load and BBQ for DH, before the next bunch of clouds swirled over and started dropping water on us.  It’s amazing!  Rain, glorious rain!  Except, we are gimping around, from the pressure change.  DH is gimping from his knees & ankles & every arthritic joint on me is screaming at me. Lol, it’s worth it, as long as our water bill goes down from over $300/mo.  Lol

    Looking into something I read about mothers vinegar.  It was stating that for type 2 diabetics, taking two tablesoons each night and with meals will bring your sugar levels down to where you won't need meds. DH and I are both type 2 diabetics. .....I do know it does good for a lot of things but have not heard about the diabitics.  If it does work then we have another option to keep our sugar levels down. :pray:  that it works. 


    I’ve read that also.  I take vinegar on a schedule. Once or twice a week, only, but I also avoid sugar, like the plague.  If I have sugar, I can guarantee I will crash, go to sleep involuntarily, within about an half an hour or less.  G-ma, mother & dad, were/are, insulin dependent. 
     

    A friend of DH, brought a cheesecake, made with mung bean extract, that didn’t have any effect on me. I want her recipe. Sweet without sugar?!?!?  Nice.


  3. Ouch, we had two with renal issues. They cathed them and dosed them with antibiotics, they lived 5 more years.   Franklin & Jung were sweeties, then, both went bald with adrenaline cancer.  Surgery requires microscopic surgery, because the are so small creatures.  Not worth the pain or suffering they have to endure. 


  4. Exactly, Jeepers. 
     

    I don’t wash my eggs but all the eggs get refrigerated as soon as I collect them, my hens get thyme & oregano in their food & water, natural antibiotics. The people who snatch up my extra dozens, have been told to wash them before they crack them and to wash after cracking them.  And, yes, they have quit laying for the winter.   :sigh:  I only have 2 doz. left.  


  5. Oh my, Littlesister, 20 some ferrets dancing around our feet.  :008Laughing:
     

    Yes, ferrets in the US only live 7-10 years, too inbred.  However, the ones in England & Australia, have a 20 year lifespan.  7 ferrets, nice!  I am in awe someone else is helping the little fuzzy faces.  They filled me with joy, and a plethora of other emotions. My hardest was, doing surgery...it never worked to give them a extended quality life.  Once adrenal, insulinoma, & other cancers set in, the best that can be done is to love them to the end.   I still have remorse for one that had surgery... the vet said, it would extend his life.... no it didn’t and he was in pain.  They didn’t stop all the bleeding on something, crushed my heart. 
     

    one thing with ferrets, they bond with one, whether human or another ferret.  If one bonded ferret passes, the bonded one will pine away.  Extremely sad, but true.  
     

    All but 3 of ours were rescued, it took time for them to accumulate to our household, but once they did, they were a riot.  
     

    Harmony, took Inspiration, screaming, by the scruff, and treated her like her own baby.  It was hilarious.  From that point on Inspire Kitty, bonded with DH, because he saved her from Mama Harmony. Lol. 
     

    So many stories, so many years.... lol

  6. Nice rails, WE2.

     

    Hope you are doing better today Mt_R.

     

     Miki, it is nice to hear you were able to resolve your mortgage issue promptly.
     

    Yesterday was busy.  I began preparing the wings around 2:00. While they were marinating, I cooked the fingers, for bone broth.  Company got here around 4, when it started to rain.  RAIN!  :hapydancsmil:  It did not deter Luna & Gunny from their play time. Muddy, wet, soaked, muddy, everywhere....yeah, they had a good time.  
     

    It is still raining today, a nice gentle soaking rain, and brrrr, for me.  60* with no humidity is comfortable, with humidity it is giving me the shivers.  Hopefully, it will ease up enough for me to get a load of clothes into the dryer.  I barely got the washer covered, before the pre-rain dust storm barreled through.  It was so thick, it looked like fog.

     

    Sorry you have to replace your stove Homesteader.  I hope you are able to get one you like quickly.  


  7. Sorry I didn’t join this year. There is so much going on here, I don’t think I’d be able to send any out soon enough. Forgive me. I’m hoping to make some more in the coming year and be able to join again next year. Again, I’m sorry.  :sigh:
     

    Thank you, Snowmom for continuing to be here for us. I’ve really missed you.


  8. Thanks, Daniel, they are still missed. I am continuing to un-ferret proof our house. IDK if some things will ever the same. Lol

     

    I pulled out a king sized French provincial I had crocheted several years ago, and forgot a ferret had munched a section out of it.  :sigh:  
     

    And, as I clean house, each week, I continue to find ferret fluff.  Tough on the heart, but our years, have been passed onto others.  As it should be.

    Annarchy, you are being too quiet. What are you up to?

     

    :hidingsmile:  Doing this and that, always something.  :happy0203:

     

    Everyone sounds motivated and busy.  Homesteader, your pantry is beautiful, I agree with Jeepers, I’d like someone to help with redecorating & remodeling. Then, again, there is no room to remodel anything in my house.  Lol  DH told me, if my back was healthy, he’d never be able to keep up with me. :icon19:

     

    Last week, DH had a friend come over, early, on cleaning day, desperately needing his friendship.  We’ve been trying to encourage him, daily.  Since we weren’t able to clean, we had to do it Tuesday.  :sigh:  

     

    I’ve been walking around the gardens, daily, looking at the growing progress,  collecting spice leaves and drying them.  Diced an handful of jalapeños that turned red and sun dried them.  When I use them, I grind them into powder.  Adds a nice spicy  flavor.  I still have 3 lbs of tomatillos to process, DH wants me to make & can green chili enchilada sauce.  
     

    DH went out target practicing with Luna’s owner, while I made 4 personal sized apple pies.  The boys scheduled a play date for Gunny, next week, and decided on the menu,  wings, tater tots, and cheesecake.  
     

    DH got motivated and disassembled the washer that died. No wonder it would never balance, several plastic parts were broken, one of the balancing arms wasn’t attached, the rubber parts and bumpers were sticky gummy and disintegrating, and the upper ring around the drum was half filled with water.  I have no idea how water got in there and we were unable to drain it.  We got most of it in the roll off dumpster.  I am going to use the outer plastic drum for a second mulch bin, perfect size for me to handle and DH wants to use the metal drum for a red neck fire pit.  :rolleyes:   We should be able to fold the outer shell and get it in the trash after the next pick up on Monday.  We don’t have curb side bulk pick up any more, so everything has to be crammed into the roll off.  The city used to come weekly and take anything we piled up by the road.  I miss that service.

     

    Other than that, I’ve been spending most my spare time working on that painting.  :gaah:  Which reminds me, time to walk the yard, and get working on it again.  Whites turned grey, dark colors turned grey and the yellow turned green. I have managed to get the mat and frame ready for framing.  All that’s needed for that, is washing the glass.  
     

    The sun is getting ready to come up, birds are flocking in for their morning seed, and the wind has finally calmed down.

  11. Harvested over 5 lbs. of tomatillos and a pound of jalapeños. They are still producing, so we might get a few more pounds.  
     

    Beets, carrots, radishes and cabbage have sprouted. I’m hoping one of the cantaloupes will be ripe enough for Thanksgiving.   


  12. DH’s friend in KY said it was 18* last night.  Montana got a couple feet of snow, a couple days ago and Maine is expecting a big storm...., just got a text, it has hit ME 7” and coming down hard.

     

    Sunny skies and strong winds here, in the mid 60’s this morning, forecast is predicting a storm coming through this weekend, dropping the high temps into the 50’s.

  14. Ezzo Sausage Company Recalls Meat Products due to Possible Listeria Contamination

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 9, 2019 – Ezzo Sausage Company, a Columbus, Ohio establishment, is recalling approximately 25,115 pounds of sausage products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

    The ready-to-eat sausage products were produced on Oct. 29, 2019, Oct. 30, 2019 and Nov. 5, 2019.  This spreadsheet contains a list of the products subject to the recall. [View labels (PDF only) 

    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 1838A” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to distribution centers in Indiana and Ohio.

    The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS of a positive sample result for Listeria monocytogenes.

    There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.  

    Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.

    Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.

    FSIS is concerned that some product may be in distribution centers, restaurants, or institutional refrigerators or freezers. Restaurants and institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
