Laundry at midnight....


  I spent the morning baking. And then got the call to go in about 3 hours early this morning, which did NOT fit into my plan.  I baked a peach pie for the Irishman to take into his class tonight and I baked Welsh pasties for his supper.  I am always looking for food that he can eat while he drives on these class nights, as the window of opportunity is very small. By the time he gets home and quickly showers, it's time to hit the road. These worked pretty well, except he said he couldn't (or didn't) get them as hot as he would have liked.

  Suffice it to say that between all that pastry making and dough rolling, I didn't get any laundry done, and he has no clean work pants. OOPS.  So, here I sit, waiting impatiently for the washer to stop so I can throw them in the dryer. Modern conveniences...ya gotta love them!


 My brother had back surgery today. Apparently it went well and they are monitoring him. Hopefully, he will go home in 2 days.

  Can't think of anything exciting been going on, so maybe I'll just call it a night on this end, and wish you all sweet dreams. I'm really tired.

  Picked some green beans again yesterday.And the peas are growing like crazy. The temps here hit 93 today, but tomorrows high is supposed to be in the mid-60's. Fall is coming like an atomic bomb, apparently. The chickens are molting and not laying well. We talked about putting the lamp back in, but it would make it too hot in there with temps like today. Sigh....life on Honeysuckle Hill....

  Night all...

You are always busy, Annie, it seems to me. Hope you had a great night's sleep and are raring to go today...

Better tepid food than none at all or late to class, I guess. You guys are so busy!

Glad your brother's surgery went well! I hope he heals quickly.

The temps have dropped dramatically up here! We had a frost warning last night!

Hope the hens are happy again soon. And that today is a less hectic day for you! Happy Wednesday! :):)

Yumm, peach pie and pasties. Sounds really good to me.

I hope your brother has a quick recovery!

Thanks everyone...
I called my sister in law this morning to check on him, and she said they had a problem during the night, and he stopped breathing...turns out that the doc gave him a pain injection during the surgery and then they gave him one in post op and then another soon afterwards...jesus, don't these people read the charts?? It was a terrible scare.

They finally got him up and put a back brace on him...he was in so much pain, and kept trying to tell them he needed to get UP...the surgery started at 7 AM Tuesday and he didn't come out until 4 PM... sis said that was a big part of the problem, laying for so many hours.
Praying this fixes it,. it's his 3rd surgery.

Welsh pasties?? Sounds kind of erotic!

Hope you got some winks after laundry.

I could use some of your fall. Word on the street is that its around the corner for us. I just want a couple of months reprieve from this gawd awful electric bills.

Finally, fall is here. I walked out of the doctor's today at 7pm and couldn't believe there was actually no humidity to speak of. It is a beautiful night.
I'm glad your brother is alright. No, I don't think they do read the charts. Scary.
