Lots of wood! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm going to do more today. Lots of downed trees from that same storm a couple of summers ago. The neat thing about taking so long to get to it is the wood is already dried out. So it's easier to cut without the moisture in it and lighter to carry and stack.

Daughter likes her banana cream pie with just the banana pudding and cut up bananas in the bottom and towards the top. But I cover it with pudding so it doesn't get brown. Dinner was fun and very quiet with just the two of us :D Kitty was disappointed, though, since daughter made pancakes Crazy

*gasp!* Bummer! [In reply to] Can't Post

Doesn't it figure the easier chainsaw would have such a pitfall? I'm glad you were able to fix it; but that meant leaving the job and finding the time to go back and finish. Harder to do when you're playing tag with the drizzles ;)

There you are :D [In reply to] Can't Post

You've been on my mind lots! I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well. *warm hug* I hope you were able to enjoy Thanksgiving. Have the workers finished with your repairs/reno? Hopefully everything will settle down very soon :)

*more hugs*

Oh dear... [In reply to] Can't Post

...what a pain to happen with that chain, I'm glad another one was handy to get!

Making Elderflower Fizz - that's a pleasant activity for a rainy day! How's the garden coming along?

Are you getting [In reply to] Can't Post

any of those strong storms in your area?

*hugs* I hope you'll be doing better before long! Sending you some virtual turkey soup loaded with helpful herbs, but wish I could send you the real thing. Were you able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal?

And yes, how is the house coming along?

The garden [In reply to] Can't Post

seems a bit sulky - I think it would enjoy a little less rain. I'm still fighting an unequal battle against the slugs and snails, too - the next batch of cucumbers again eaten to the ground, all the rocket seedlings gone, and they're even nibbling the tomato plants! We've been here over 20 years, and I've never seen an infestation like it. I was comparing notes with my physio, and she's finding the same: slugs climbing right to the top of pea plants and eating all the new shoots. I was in the local garden centre last week, and noticed some of their seedlings had been eaten - and they were right out of snail bait.

The Fizz is bottled, now I just have to be patient for a week or two :) After an interesting result one year, I'm now careful to only fill the bottles half full.

Fun indeed! [In reply to] Can't Post

Rarely a dull moment with that group. Smile

Definitely feeling like home, albeit a horribly cluttered one still, lol. The sofa arrives on Tuesday, so once that's assembled I'm hoping it'll start to feel even cozier. And no art, unfortunately - the little market we went to ended up being more like a gallery than a true market, and what was for sale was a bit out of my price range. But still a fun time.

Have you managed to get through all of the leftovers yet, or is there still enough for soup?

Aw thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

There's always another box or two...or three...that we managed to tuck away in the Great Pile of Boxes in the living room and have to unpack. Angelic

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving with your daughter!

All gone! [In reply to] Can't Post

Except for one more slice of pie apiece. We did have enough soup for two meals!

That's too bad about the art, but that's okay, once you've got all your furniture and all the little things put in their places you may find the perfect things to go with them to hang on your walls. (Movie posters, maybe? I've got a Yellow Submarine that my brother snitched from a movie theater back in the day...)

That's awful about the slugs! [In reply to] Can't Post

Are there any "natural predators" (fowl, large birds, etc.) that you could borrow and let loose in your garden?

That's pretty impressive! [In reply to] Can't Post

Even in my meat-eating days, I was lucky to make it to Saturday's lunch with any leftovers still intact.

It's funny you say that: I have some great LOTR posters back home with my parents, but the posters already framed so it would be a pain (and probably pricey) to have them shipped here. They're a bit big for this place though, so as you say now we have the chance to find stuff that works for the space!

a tip from a very "sluggy" place [In reply to] Can't Post

put out a shallow pan filled with beer. They will crawl in and drink themselves to death.

yes, we need an update! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hope you are now living in a fully functional home? And good vibes for moving from "mildly" unwell to perfectly well!

I think we have some teetotal slugs [In reply to] Can't Post

as the beer trap we put out was left untouched, except for a few earthworms! A disappointment, as I had high hopes for that. I think I'll just have to hope that if the dry weather ever comes it'll at least slow them down.

I was picking broad beans this morning, and realised I'd grabbed a slimy handful. Seriously yuck.

Fowls in the neighbourhood [In reply to] Can't Post

But they can be destructive in the vege garden, so I'd be reluctant to invite them. I've been giving the blackbirds and thrushes stern looks for not keeping their end up.
