  • Thank you ladies

    I taught today, and then went shopping.
    Big surprise

    Supper tonight was a local "event" (remember the Irish night and the Mexican night?)
    Tonight was a Scottish night.

    Smoked salmon on cucumber with a dill sauce
    Haggis in a puff pastry (I ate the insides)
    Wine or Keiths
    Cock-a-leekie soup
    1/2 a Cornish hen, horseradish potato patties, and Brussel sprout confetti
    a fruit butter tart (I left most of the crust) and Drambuie

    excellent

    • I hear you on the indifference thing. Some days it seems like I'm posting the same crap all over and over again. Yet I'm still here. idk either. I'm considering a rethink of my journal for the New Year.

      Your Scottish night sounds great! No scotch?? Any kilted highlanders? Now you've got me thinking about Diana Gabaldon's books, haha.

      • Ha!
        Yeah, there were a few, but they were nothing like my image of Jamie...

        btw, I wore my grandmother's kilt.

          • This afternoon's project:



            Yes, there's real wood wainscoting behind the cupboards. The very solidly built cupboards.

            Guess why we tore them out??



            Yup! A DISHWASHER!!! Finally!!



            Not quite finished. We still have to put the drawer faces on and trim up the edges, BUT here's my hidden dishwasher
            in my really old kitchen. (That I will paint - one of these days) Of course we had no dishwasher detergent so we couldn't actually USE it yet...

            • Eldest has hair that long and full (only blond). Of course, he's a college student. Easier to have that style when you are young. Is this teacher able to pull it off? Or is it a mistake?

              • The teacher is young. He makes it work.

                I went Christmas shopping today. Left home at 10am - left London at 8:30pm
                The highway was horrible on the way home! I was driving 50km (on a 100 km/h highway)
                Within a 20 km stretch there were 5 cars in the ditch!

                I'm almost done shopping
                almost

                I only ate once today. I realized about 3 that I hadn't eaten. I finished in the store I was in and made another stop before I got to the mall. Then I looked at a couple of stores before I finally decided that I should eat. That FREEDOM from food (and the clock) is amazing! I remember when I couldn't go 3 hours without feeling weak and shaky. This is a very nice change.

                I had a Chai on my way into London, a mall chicken shawarma salad at 5 and a Venti $tarbucks half sweet breve chai lattte for the drive home. Then I had a glass of red wine.

                The wind is blowing like crazy outside.

                • Welcome to winter. Finally. <I've been a tad jealous of your long lovely fall> And appropriate for the winter solstice and all. Happy to hear you made it home safe after that nasty drive.

                  I'm almost done shopping too, and just started this week, heehee . And that includes the food stuffs.

                  • Men should sport full heads of hair when they're young. While they can. I pity the poor fools who shave their heads through their best hair-growing years. Yes, child of the 70s speaking here.

                    Feel free to take a vacation from journaling, and to revamp the format as it suits you. I don't post my daily activities, primarily because it would be pretty boring to both me and everybody else, and partly because I have no intention of violating the privacy of family and friends by posting anything that isn't pretty much public knowledge.

                    So the question is what do you want to get out of journaling? And what do you want to give? Then take it from there.

                        • I made some of your chocolate heart candies, today. With walnuts. There was leftover chocolate from something Littlest was making, and it HAD to be used up somehow! If I am lucky, I might even get some this time, as I have NOT told the girls they are in the fridge.

                            • So,
                              Um,
                              We had a chimney fire today.
                              5 fire trucks, 2 police and an ambulance.

                              • A friend called this morning commenting on the "Environmental pollution" coming out of our chimney. We laughed and I got in the shower. Meanwhile, FIL (who lives 3 houses down) called and asked my Farmer what was happening with our chimney. My Farmer went outside with the Butterflies and looked up and came back in and told me "We have a fire" I said "Are you kidding me?" I jumped out of the shower, ran upstairs as he was calling 911. I got dressed as I called the kids, telling them to grab the cats and put them in a crate. We all got out. We put the pets in the truck. Then, as there was no smoke in the house yet, my Farmer went back in and took the logs out of the wood furnace, University Son grabbed the computers, and I grabbed the camera. Then we went back in for some Christmas presents. Surfer Son grabbed a ladder and took it upstairs for the firemen (so they could check out the attic. We did all this before the fire trucks came.

                                My Farmer is an ex-firefighter.

                                So we spent the morning standing outside watching the firemen. They hauled a hose into the house, opened the attic hatch and discovered that he fire hadn't spread to the attic. Meanwhile, the hose had a leak at the connection between two hoses and leaked water all over my dining room which leaked down into the basement directly onto laundry baskets full of clean folded clothes!

                                My Farmer, who was right inside the house with the firemen, brought out the turkey and ham around 10 and Surfer Son, Eldest and his Girlfriend took the meat to my sister's to start cooking. I took photos (I haven't down loaded them onto the computer yet - I just have one I took on my iPhone) and teased the firemen that they had to use one of our ladders.

                                The pumper truck died in our driveway and they called a mechanic and eventually a tow truck!

                                They climbed on the roof and dropped a chain thing down the chimney and put out the fire.
