    • Awesome concert

      Thanksgiving weekend.
      All my children home
      Turkey, wine, dessert...

      I'm finding my enthusiasm for daily postings to be...lacking.
      Maybe 2+ years will do that.

      I'm mostly primal (reminds me of "mostly dead" - The Princess Bride) as far as food goes.
      The other areas...could use a lot of work...

      I'm feeling very content in my new house, despite all the boxes.

          • Thanks for stopping by, Winencandy. It makes me feel happy that mine is one of the journals you catch up on. And glad that you've finally had enough spare time to catch up on anything! Wow, Thanksgiving the week after you move into a new house. You are with it! (Or crazy! )

            • Happy belated Thanksgiving. Sounds like you had a good one. I hope with all those hands at home you got some help unpacking.

                3 years ago we bought a 100 acre farm, with a 100 year old house. I saw it for the 1st time this summer We told the old man that lived there he could stay as long as he wanted. He moved to a sr. apt complex in early Sept and we moved in on Sept 22. This was our 1st move in 25 years! (We also celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary 4 days later)

                Post 2977 has some photos of the 1st time I saw the house (with the old owner's furniture)
                I haven't posted any with our stuff in it yet (Of course all you would see would be piles of boxes )

                • Tuesday
                  I spent the morning trying to organize my office. I set up the printer and made a small dent in the pile of boxes
                  In the afternoon I planted 62 cloves of garlic! (30 from one local farmer and 32 from another organic farmer - they were smaller)
                  I covered them with soybean "straw" from the field. I laughed thinking about what people driving by would think while watching the crazy lady rake her field! I was cold after planting the garlic so I grabbed a chair, a book and a glass of wine and sat in my greenhouse with my Butterflies. It was lovely

                  In the evening I soaked in my claw foot tub and then watched Rocky Horror Picture Show

                  Wednesday
                  I hate funerals.
                  I had to drive my In Laws to a funeral today, NE of London.
                  I knew no-one.
                  I STILL almost cried at one point.
                  I'm such a hopeless sap.

                  I spent a few hours with my Farmer and then he left with his buddies to go on his annual moose hunting trip in the "Swamp Donkey Express" (an old converted school bus). 9 hour drive. So, for the 25th time, I'm a moose hunter's widow for a week.

                  • Thursday

                    Slept in till 9
                    Chai with whipping cream and then nothing till supper.
                    Went shopping in London, bought some house things. A cast iron tea pot, an old-looking, frilly red apron to hang in my retro kitchen, stainless steel measuring cups, a basket for the Butterflies toys, and some other little things. I stopped at the chocolate store and bought 3 75 & 80% and one 100% dark chocolate bars.

                    Then I went to my chiropractor.

                    After supper (left over chicken thigh, squash, tomatoes and cheese {old & Brie}) I went to play practice. Once I got home I hunted up a pirate costume for a theatre event on the 20th.

                    My back is sore again...

                    • So how are you liking the new home? Seems like you're doing a great job at getting the garden in order! I'm jealous of the greenhouse. Clawfoot tub sounds pretty awesome, too.

                      Glad to hear you saw the chiro, but you need to take it easy for a few days, methinks.

                        A greenhouse with butterflies? *plonk* And a clawfoot tub? *double plonk* (Except that I hate cleaning underneath those things.) I am jealous, for sure.

                        Hmm, maybe I should stick a couple of cloves of my organic garlic in the flower beds. Just to see.

                        I've been moved to tears at the funerals of people I barely knew too. It's just harmonizing with the emotions of the people left behind.

                          I am really loving the new house! For 25 years I've lived in a house I really didn't like. I moved in to the old house with the understanding that we would build a new house behind it and tear down the old house. That never happened. Then we thought that my Farmer's parents were going to move out of their house and we would move into it. That never happened. I had lived for SO MANY years in a house didn't like that I hadn't realized how it had affected me until I'd moved out of it!! Although I'm sure that I'm in the "honeymoon" phase, I'm thinking that I could be very happy here. As I said before, I feel CONTENT.

                          The clawfoot tub IS awesome

                          OK, The greenhouse is an old tobacco greenhouse, (I'll get a photo) the Butterflies are my Papillons (Papillon is French for Butterfly) The clawfoot tub IS awesome (I haven't cleaned under it yet) This is the 1st year I've tried planting garlic.

                          Yeah, the funeral thing...don't you feel weird (fake) crying at a funeral for someone you don't know??? I know I do.

                          • Friday

                            So I had another weird day today.
                            In the morning I took my car to the mechanic's (oil change and new wipers)
                            Then I took the Butterflies for a walk in our backyard:

                            This is from a 1/2 a km out in our field, looking back at our house and barns.

                            At noon, some friends (my "creative" crew) picked me up and we went on a prop hunting adventure.
                            We picked up these girls:

                            Meet Matilda (fox), Molly (raccoon) and Beatrice (beaver) Of course we had to name them

                            Matilda really enjoyed the car ride to the theatre:

                            They are going to be part of the Ritz Apache Hotel (the setting for the play I'm helping with)

                            We went out for lunch around 2. I had chili (a HUGE bowl , I could only eat half of it) and then I stopped at a friend's of my parents to help him recover/change his password for his email (he'd forgotten it) It took me about a half hour, he asked me what he owed me (I've been debating starting a business helping people with their electronic/computer/software problems) but I ddn't charge him. How am I supposed to start a business when I feel weird charging people???

                            Time for a couple more photos:
                            My fall centerpiece:


                            The "old fashioned" apron hanging on my kitchen wall:
