  • Autumn and Birds

    It’s Autumn now so I need to get the bird feeders setup for the colder months soon. I have both mixed seeds and black oil sunflower seeds, so I need to see if I have enough useful feeders to keep them both going on the porch this autumn season and winter too. Over last winter […]

  • There’s a warming trend

    It’ll be much warmer this week. Then colder again … so for now, it’ll be nice to get outside with my Canon 7D, and hopefully have enough wood for the fireplace as the piecemeal cold days come in the future.

  • Fireplace Update & A/C Forecast

    Our fireplace is still in use, and the part was supposedly ordered, but hasn’t come in yet. It’ll be a couple more weeks of fireplace use, at least. Maybe more. Spring doesn’t look too far away looking at Accuweather data. Then it’ll be back to the A/C to keep pollen to a minimum and hope […]

  • Still, STILL Snowing

    It’s still, still snowing, though maybe not as hard as it was an hour ago. I haven’t gotten my pictures uploaded yet, though I have downloaded them from my camera to my computer … FWIW.

  • Still Snowing

    The snow is STILL coming down, now it’s 5pm. It’s been falling thickly for so long now and the snow must be 4+” by now. I will put some pictures here in a bit.

  • Winter Weather in the South

    It’s March 1st and we are having our first real “Winter Storm” of the year. It’s been Spring-like for a while, many things are blooming. It’s been raining since Friday night (and had some lightning/thunder as well) –off and on, and the ground is mushy and over-wet, even more than that in places, deep puddles […]

  • Happy New Year

    2007 is gone. 2008 is here. We had “fireworks” out front on New Years Eve to mark the occasion (Costco sells big packs of “fountain” type fireworks made by TNT, this time of year and around the 4th of July.) We’ve gotten this sort of thing for the 4th starting in 2006, continued it in […]

  • Under the weather

    Last week Baby Q wasn’t feeling well, and neither was I, as well as two of the older children coughing a lot. The coughing seems to have come from a previous “cold” that was in the family … residual leftover maybe from when we all had a cold a few weeks ago (from now) … […]

  • November 8 ’07 – First Fireplace Morning

    I’ve known for a few days that the weather would be cooler and cooler this week, and so prepared for wanting a fire in the fireplace this morning. Indeed, it’s nice. Outside it’s frosty. It was frosty yesterday, but not nearly so much as today shows Jack’s visit (on the grass and the vehicles parked […]

  • November – Holiday Season begins

    Holiday Season is right around the corner. It’s November now, which means in our household we have Thanksgiving and then our DD’s Birthday, or visa-versa, depending on the year. (She was born in 1998 on the 25th, the day before Thanksgiving.) This year Thanksgiving is three days before her b-day. It always makes for a […]

  • April Freeze and Gardening 2007

    From Friday night to Saturday morning it was supposed to be really cold, just below freezing. I don’t think that actually happened on our property … yes it was cold, but not quite to freezing, from how the grass and blooms and herbs and such look in our yard(s) as of Saturday afternoon … Now […]

  • Happy November (2005)

    It’s now November, another increment of 2005 gone … the years go by faster and faster as you get older … this I know from experience and from the knowlege imparted to me by elders over time. At some points time seems to crawl and others to fly fastly by, but this is not what […]

  • Autumn is truly here

    I got an audio book from Audible today, for the Autumn season … it’s not a “Halloween” thing, we “don’t do halloween”. It’s a spooky audio book though. The cool weather has finally arrived. It was unseasonably warm (really hot) just the other week, and the last four or five days has been heavenly. Tonight […]

  • We have a new store near-by

    We just got a new store a few miles away. There was a K-Mart there before, but it’s one that closed when they closed a bunch of their stores some time ago. The space is nearly filled now, as store after store slowly has taken up part of the empty space. We have the first […]

  • Winter and Spring doing their thing

    I’m up just for a short while. It’s tiring being up, but also tiring being in bed, though it feels good to stay there, my mind wanders far from it and forces me up now and then. Whatever that means! So I was looking at Accuweather’s 15-day Outlook, and it seems to me it’s going […]

  • It Snowing! Happy March!

    In Georgia it’s usually Springtime in the South, by the time March 1 rolls around. Sure it can get down to freezing at night, and some days be chilly, but not that bad. It’s snowing right now. OK, thick Flurries. It’s snow though. It’s snowing. March 1, 2005 10 AM and it’s snowing in Georgia. […]

  • It’s a cool day

    Today it’s been cool and overcast, a bit gusty at times, and then rain started this afternoon. It “feels” chillier than it really is, due to all those conditions. This is normal, as hotter temps have the same thing making it usually “feel hotter”. Drier hot days don’t feel “as hot”, just as some cooler […]

  • Spring! Signs everywhere!

    It’s a lovely day so far. It’s supposed to be up to around 61 degrees F. The sun is shining. Spring is in the air. I forgot to post this exciting news the other day. Victoria were on the deck the other day sorting through some Thyme I’d cut out of my herb garden (hair […]

  • Sunny Day At Last!

    Ah, the sun is shining. I got the whole floor swept up on the main level. Sunlight makes that possible 🙂 It’s cool out still, but with the sunny backyard, it feels lovely. Going out on the deck is like a spa. In the summer it REALLY is. Right now it’s just that it feels […]

  • Burning things

    This morning at 4:30am it was 40 degrees F. outside. Now, at 11:56am it is 34 degrees, raining and blechy yucky out. Not only that, but Frank left for Phoenix this early morning and will be away the next few days of this numbing weather. We went through nearly all of our wood this past […]
