How long into winter will those potatoes last, Sunny?
My groceries did not come today. It was put off until tonight or tomorrow.

I hate it when things do not go as plsnned, Tina. I hope that it all works out in the end.

Sunny, lol..so sorry the kids are "helping you". But it is something they will remember for years..plus it is good for them to see you working so hard for the family.

Goodnight everyone. Sweet Dreams.

Tina, I'm not sure how long the potatoes will last, I got a lot less than I normally do. They are a different variety than I wanted and the hot Summer did not help much either. Once I have them all dug than I can have a better estimate. I should have enough carrots to get us through the Winter(if I can keep the kids from feeding them all to the horses) lol

The beets are ready to be processed tomorrow as well. Slow and steady wins the race hopefully....my preserve space is nicely filling up.

Sheri, the carrots store well in bags in my fridge, I also cut and freeze some.

I got 30 gallons of potatoes from my garden.

Good morning! Congratulations on the potatoes, Sunny. That is a good lot of potatoes.
You make me wish I had.of found out how many potatoes weight wise I used to grow. I will say they covered my picnic table. That is where I sat them to dry...

Horrid headache today. From being outside yesterday I guess.

Good morning. I am trying to figure what thirty gallons of taters look like. I finally settled on six 5 gallon buckets-worth. I can 'see' them now. How do you store them without a cellar, Sunny?
I am sorry about your achy head, Carol.

Junie I've got a little bit of a headache too. I think it's from being in the yard this afternoon. It was cool with a nice breeze but ragweed is blooming.

Sorry for you, Sheri. Mine finally got to the place where I thought tylenol would help and it did...I was outside for about 20 minutes today.I sure hope tomorrow is not a repeat of today. I would have loved to have been outside more.....but I do not want a repeat of the allergy problems I had today. I think my body is not used to the allergens here.

I hope your head feels better soon, Sheri.

Tina, I can store the potatoes in my mothers basement.

I pickled up my beets yesterday, that was the last item on the preserving list....so I am officially done.

Today is a clean and mop day.

Good morning.
Today is the autumnal equinox. That means there is as much dark as daylight. Or something, something. I had to look up when the clocks change and it's Nov 1st.

Good morning Tina. You know, I would like it if we just left the clocks alone...in this time schedule. I hate more dark of the evening. But then I do not make the rules...

I took a bath and the steam got rid of the rest of my headache. So yay !!
My dishes and from yesterday are washed, laundry is divided and the first load is in the washer. Eating lunch now.

Hi all,
had to get online to print out a trash bill so hubby can go dump yard waste for free.... have to prove you are a resident.... guess drivers license is not proof ... he is cutting down a smallish tree in our side yard.. it's growing into our shed ... and really serves no purpose... he's doing fall cleanup so good time to take a load for him and one of the neighbors too... good thing we kept his old truck ..uses it more here..

The powers that be just relaxed our mask orders but we are still staying in... and wearing masks if we have to go out... I don't know why they do this and then wonder why people are dying in droves again... sure glad we don't have kids in school ...

Well off to mop my kitchen and bathroom floors... takes longer to take out table and chairs than to do mopping... but can't wait till I can get tile in office and hallways.. and replace the horrible carpet in bedrooms... it's the cheapest they could have gotten and no padding and it is always dirty looking even when I use the carpet machine on it....

Have a good day all... stay well !
Nana

Ugh, Sherri, I have known carpets like that. Good luck! Good for you keeping masks even in a place where they are no longer required. What will places like Walmart do about their nationwide requirement, I wonder?
I'm glad the shower helped your head, Carol.
My phone line was out this morning which means my internet too. I made the necessary calls and things and was expecting someone to come tomorrow for repairs. I think it was a lineman working down the way because it's working fine now. It was about three hours total.

Yes about kids in school. I worry every day that one of my grands that live by me wil get sick. They are all 4 " in school". The 4 on the east coast are doing virtual schooling. Well 3 are. The baby is 2.

On the news tonight I heard a lady complaining that the county next to us has extended the mask order. I have no idea why she is upset..noone listens to it anyway. To most it is just life as usual. Our family uses masks when we have to go out but we try not to any more than necessary. Even Wal-Mart has curb side pick up.

Sorry for your phone's outage Tina. You would think that TPTB could let people know ahead of time. It would cause a lot less confusion. I am glad all is well now.

I've read where people in Florida have been bullied for wearing masks. I hope it doesn't spread around the country. It seems pretty awful.
Here it is a statewide mandate so the law is on the side of the masked. For now anyway.

That is just sad to hear, Tina. Are they of the herd mentality, ..where everyone should just get it and have immunity ?? Silly people.

I will say I do not think that my daughter's in-laws social distance. So I assume no masks.
This is all strange as Val's Sister-in-law is a nurse practitioner..with a Doctorate. You would think she would know better.

LOL..I have absolutely no idea, Sheri. I will say it is light and fluffy like cake..and not like a loaf or bread is. Perhaps that is the difference.

Covid laws are getting more strict here...and I am glad. We are down to two active cases in our province, that is a blessing in these times.

Today we are getting the winds and rain from Hurricane Teddy, we can use the rain so no complaints here about that.

Nana, I remember taking out those carpets in our bedrooms and replacing it with peel and sticks from the dollar store in hopes of someday getting decent flooring in there. I still have the peel and sticks but at least it's not those 'can never look clean' carpets....I hope you get to replace them soon.

I'll take some apple loaf.

Good morning.
While Teddy (no relation) was playing in the water, he hoovered up all the smoke he could reach from California's wildfires. Now he's bringing it to eastern Canada. I hope you can find something useful to do with it, Sunny. I am sorry.
And Beta is giving Houston, Tx a good scrubbing.

I would like to think that California..and the entire west coast really, would get some rain from all of these. " storms". Sorry for the smoke, Sunny. We are getting rain today...so far not enough to help, just enough to be annoying.

And oh, good morning !

It's supposed to be sunny here today but it's overcast and feels damp out there. I was going to prune a few shrubs but I may wait a day or two.

I went to my mothers yesterday and brought her here with the intention of her spending the night but she didn't want too. I didn't want to force her because I don't know what's she's actually thinking anymore, so I took her back after dinner. Andy loves her. She let him lick ice cream out of her bowl.
