Today we had sunshine, rain, sleet, hail and high winds…. all repeated several times.

I started going through my blog posts, getting my thoughts organized for my book. (Ok, for years readers have told me I should write a book, so I am. Hope those same readers buy it)
Anyway, one of the things that quickly became obvious is the poor quality of some of the early photos. (Ok, I know that almost … Continue reading.....
One problem those of us with a potager have is an abundance of vegetables.
The other problem is that everyone else has the same abundance.

It is broadcast here, live on some channels, but it starts after midnight, on a Sunday night. You can see why parties aren’t really big.
We don’t watch it.
We … Continue reading.....
How I spent the last weekend of summer….
We had 10 cubic metres of firewood delivered this weekend.
I stacked it.
The photo above shows it half done, below all neatly stacked.
When I started, the concrete slab was empty.
Mon mari was busy building….
I can’t build but I can stack!
Mon mari finished building our storage room.
And … Continue reading.....
