A cold morning again...

Remember the beautiful little red maple from the last post? Here it is 2 days later. wow.  Must really be November now...It's been very cold the past few nights, in the 20's. This morning there was a heavy frost that may be finishing off the lettuce, even with the row covers on it.  I pulled up some snow peas to feed to the chooks, because, although they have flowered beautifully, they didn't make one darn pea pod.  The plants still look okay, but SURELY it's too cold now to make veggies. lol


 I seem to have a sick little doggie. Yesterday she threw up in the living room floor.  She was pretty lethargic all day, although she did come out and ride with me to the market.  Then I could barely get her out of the car when we got back home. This morning she is very sleepy and lethargic again...can't hardly get her outside to go to the bathroom.  Of course, she hates the cold, so that doesn't help. lol  She did finally eat a little of my breakfast eggs...last night she wouldn't even take a cookie. (Which is SO not like her!)  So, I'm keeping an eye on her and hopefully she just has a little bug or something and will be okay and I won't have to make a vet trip.


 When I went to the market in town yesterday to get some stuff to make the Irishman a meatloaf,  they had a big box outside the front door with little pumpkins in it, marked 25 cents each.  I kinda of looked at it and thought, No--I swore I wasn't doing that again.  lol  When I got inside, Bob says--hey, I saw you looking at the pumpkins. I said, naw...I remembered what happened last time and swore I wouldn't do that again. So not worth all the mess and trouble. He smiled and said...I'll give you a deal on them. I really want them gone. Soooo...I came home with a box of about 10 medium sized pumpkins for a buck and a quarter.  If I ever get dressed today, I'll be processing pumpkins I guess.  LOL   (I am such a sucker for a food deal....)


  We had a nice quiet weekend around these parts...Veterans day has come and gone again.  I finally harvested the lemon grass and brought one pot in the house and mulched the bejeezus out of the other one that I left in the ground. Yesterday I spent 2 hours+  peeling and freezing lemon grass stalks. Wound up with a gallon of them. Pretty good haul.  I also did another quart of green onion tops from the Walking onions. Just froze them like I do the chives. We'll see how that works out, but I can't imagine why it wouldn't.  I baked a pumpkin crunch dessert the other day for the Irishman, since it's his favorite.  Sunday afternoon I also baked some peanut butter cookies...even though cookies are my least favorite thing to make. lol  I made an Italian herbed bread and we had leftover minestrone soup and warm bread for supper...perfect for a rainy cold Sunday supper. And boy, did it rain. And the wind blew like crazy. It was something else. It poured and poured...and then Monday morning, it was cold and clear and sunny and beautiful.  It's like that today too...it might be 30 by now (11:30)  the pupplios are going out for a little bit and then coming right back in. Spoiled dogs...lol


   Well...if I don't get up and moving, I'm not going to get a thing done today. There's really no rush on the pumpkins, but I don't want to leave that box sitting on the island any longer than necessary. I would love to see my kitchen again someday....lol  (Hey! It could happen!!)


  Everybody have a wonderful Tuesday....


Namaste.

Is it Roxie the Doxie who is sick? I sure hope she's better soon, now I'm just going to worry... and yeah, it's definitely November, quickly moving towards the middle of the month. :-)

Rita ~~ I know, right? lol I'm almost finished with the cooking and peeling part...yikes. Every time I say I'll not do this ever again and now I remember why. lol

DJan --yes, it's little Miss Roxie. She seems a little better...at least she's rolling around on her back and wagging her tail again. But we're taking it slow...

Buttons said...

I Hope your dog is going to be OK. B

Akannie said...

Hi Buttons...

I think she is~~she was much better this evening. Even tried begging for some pumpkin. lol She definitely got ahold of something bad outside...But tonight she's sleeping under her blankie, after going out several times.

Thanks everyone, for your concern.
