Well, the granddaughter made it to 9:45 Pm that night. That is when I looked up and she was dead asleep!! AT 10, me and her and the dogs went to sleep. I had the battery checked for the tractor and they said it just needed charging. I changed the alternator, because it tested bad. I still do not think the alternator is charging correctly, so I am now looking at the voltage regulator. I did get the tractor started!! I started on my youngest daughters baby log crib. I will take pictures as I go along. All I have done so far is remove the bark from 4, 7 foot pieces and sanded them. I also got all the logs layed out on saw horses, so I could see what I am going to use where. Today, the wife and I went to town. She needed SLIP for her ceramics and clay for her clay spinning wheel. I got new shoes for work and a lined wind breaker. I had left my other one at a restaurant last year. We also ate seafood today before coming home from town. I am now at work tonight and tomorrow night.

Interesting day! Took my granddaughter along to pick up my friend who has Alzheimers to take her grocery shopping and the out for lunch


















Interesting day! took granddaughter along to pick up my friend who has Alzheimers to take her grocery shopping .After a couple hours and 230 dollars later we had it all.So many things she saw after I pointed them out ,she'd say oh I've never seen this before, and was real excited to put it in the cart( just regular items ).It's a sad thing.But it was funny she certainly knew what she liked and what she doesn't.
After we took her food home ,we went out to eat lunch at a German restaurant,and that was fun.She is also from Germany.
But I was worn out when we got home Told my granddaughter , if I should ever get it,I hope you'll be kind and patient with me.

Things to do today- start packing for weekend trip to SC- looks like there will be cooler weather so I'll need my cargo pants, jeans and fleece shirt-jac. Grocery shop for snacks for trip. Unload as much as possible from car. I'll head to the mountains after Charleston to see autumn colors and see my "foster-daughter"- DD's best friend since 5th grade. DD has already told me they don't want to see me so I will not be stalking them. But I am now an honorary great grandma thru foster daughters daughter. Want to see the baby and drop off the clothes and stuff I've accumulated for him. Foster daughter offered to put me up and I gladly accepted. It figures that the two nights planned for there are the only nights with ANY chance of rain forecast- 80-% and 40%- otherwise I would try camping.
I think DD is reacting to the granddaughter's upset at our last visit that we had to wait from 9:30 am till 3 pm when she finally got up, off the computer and dressed for our one day there when we had discussed with them taking the grands out to buy them school supplies and clothes- we had decided to wait no more and were going out the door with dgs just as she was coming downstairs. I had told DD (and this is only the latest time we've had to wait hours for the granddaughter) that the child's actions were rude in the extreme. (When we came back I gave granddaughter $60 towards her own shopping for school supplies, but apparently either she or the parents are still upset and taking it out on us) It was our only day there and we left in the morning directly from our motel room.
Kitty cats can sense I'm planning to be gone- I think- they have been ultra affectionate. Trying to guilt me. Suspecting I will be unfaithful with foster-daughter's pets..

Hello gang! Okay, apparently I am going to live! It has been the worst "wave" of the IBS in years, and my normal waves are bad enough. Anyways, finally 3 full days of no, uhhmm, massive eruptions and writhing on the floor. This morning I have almost all my energy back. I have lost count - I think it's been 2 weeks.

Never made it to town last week, and have meds I need to fill, so I have to go today no matter what. I am hoping to get out of here in about a half hour, and pray pray pray an attack doesn't hit while I'm out.

Everything is such a blur for the last 2 weeks, so not much to report other than the corn is still doing great - the weather has been perfect for it! The pepper harvest is on like mad, they are doing great. It's fun to watch my DH's joy at all the hot peppers he's never grown before and they are all doing so good.

DG is coming Friday night for the weekend so I'll need to get some "kid" food for her during shopping today!

So a big hi to all of you and thank you for your prayers and good wishes during a tough time.

Homesteader - So glad you're feeling better!!!!

I got up early enough to see the Lunar eclipse this morning - very cool!!
I feel pretty alert today. I think I got enough sleep last night, which is helpful.

I had lunch with my co-worker and one of my BFF's yesterday at Red Lobster. We had a great chat and I gave her the cute Halloween basket I won at the Gourd Dance. She said she's going to put some candy in it and give it to her Vet. She has a dog with epilepsy and this Vet goes out of his way to help her and keep her dog on an even keel. I was happy she can make use of the basket!

Our newest fur-baby is looking very healthy and filling out now that she's getting good food and love. She's finally quit dragging stuff off and chewing it up for the most part. She's our old farm dog's best friend now and it's hilarious to watch them wrestle or roll around together in the pasture.

I'm headed out at lunch to run errands at the Library and the Health Food store.
Have a wonderful day, everyone!!!

Woke up today at noon. Went out and took the voltage regulator off the tractor. It was dirty and the inside was rusted up. I put voltage to it to test it and it would not work. I could move the contact arm with my finger, but it would not work electrically. So, off to the auto parts store for one. Had to drill one hole for part of the mounting of it on the tractor. Got it hooked up and then I fired up the tractor. Took my volt meter and got the 13 to 14 volts I needed for charging the battery. I was super happy!!! Now I am at work, but it is Friday for me. I return Sat morning for my weekend run. I will mostly work on the log crib tomorrow, after I get up from working tonight and on Friday. I am going to take pictures and will post them when I am able. You all sleep good, I will try to stay awake!!!!

Homesteader, I'm glad you're feeling better - IBS is miserable! Fellow sufferer, here.
Travis, looking forward to crib pics. Congrats on getting the tractor running.
GMB, Your dd is cutting off her nose to spite her face.

My road trip didn't take me to Denver or Salt Lake - weather forecasts for both were not good during that time frame. Instead, we drove from Baker City to Bend, stopping along the way in Sumpter again to drop off a thank you note to the gentleman who pointed me in the right direction to find my dad's house. I picked up an extra special rock along the creek there to commemorate my visit there. Didn't get to go to the museum in Baker City after all, and only looked at a few of the cool old houses - bff was wanting to get on the road.

We spent that night in Bend and had a truly horrid experience at the hotel there. From having trouble getting checked in at the Super 8 website price, to new, very uncomfortable mattresses that creaked horribly whenever you shifted position, to the toilet running all night long every minute on the minute, and a nasty sour smell in the bathroom, I slept maybe an hour. When I complained to the manager, she told me she was taking 10% off the bill, but then gave me the new receipt for MORE than what we were quoted the night before! I pulled up the website to show her, but she kept insisting that the taxes and fees were not included in the rate, despite it saying right on the page that they were. So instead of a slight (not enough) reduction, she actually charged me $3 more for the privilege of a crappy stay. I finally lost my temper (lack of sleep will do that to me when dealing with a rude idiot), and actually cussed. She cussed right back! Um, you are in a service industry, and even when you want to cuss, you really can't do that to a customer, even if she did it first, lol. After all that, and very little sleep for several days in a row, I was ready to go home.

My bff just didn't listen to me and kept driving. Eventually, I was glad she did, but I spent much of the day just riding along on her sightseeing trip. I was just so tired! We drove to Crater Lake, where the forecast was supposed to be for sunny weather, and I was looking forward to seeing the blue water. It was cold and there was snow on the ground last year when we went, and with clouds and rain, the water wasn't that pretty blue you see in the postcards. Well, we got there this year, just in time for a storm to roll in again! What are the odds? Funny thing is that in some of the pics I took, the water looks blue, but just looking at it, it looked gray. The entire rim was open this year, so we did drive around the whole lake, including the pinnacles area, which wasn't open last year. I was feeling better by then, and really enjoyed the walk along the trail and taking pics of the strange formations there.

We drove on into Medford that night, and splurged on a little better class of hotel for the final night. It was lovely to get a fairly decent night's sleep in a comfy, firm, QUIET bed! Breakfast was wonderful, too, as was the pool.

Our last day on the road, we backtracked a bit to Eagle Point. We hit the Goodwill there, and I hit the jackpot. Brand new bras that actually fit well for 2.99 each, swimsuit tops, new with tags on for 2.99 and 7.99, a shovel for 4.99, and more canning jars. We'd stopped at a Goodwill and a Habitat ReStore along the way and found canning jars for .25 to .29 each, ending up with 4 dozen jars, most with new lids and rings by the end of the trip. I also found a lid that will fit my little Nesco roaster for 12.5 cents, and a few other goodies.

After the Goodwill, we toured the grist mill in Eagle Point, and took lots of pics there and at the covered bridge nearby. One of the owners of the grist mill store asked where I was from and I told her. I live near a very small town, the only one of its name in the entire US, and no one ever knows where it is. She not only knew, but had just moved her mother home from there! 2nd time in as many stops that someone not only knew where my town was, but had a personal tie to it; the checker at Goodwill's brother in law and his wife live in my town, too. It was fun to talk to both of the ladies! Oh, and I splurged and finally bought myself a WonderMill while I was at the grist mill. Horrible price for new, but better than I've seen elsewhere and no tax or shipping, and I haven't been able to find one used (probably will now, lol).

From there, we drove on home - didn't get there until nearly midnight, and I couldn't have been happier to fall into my own bed and get a good night's sleep. I think I slept the better part of 2-3 days, and needed another few days to really feel human again. It was fun, but I don't feel the need to do it again anything soon!

Sorry, I got a bit wordy there, even for me, lol!

Since I got home, I've been working on processing tomatoes that ripened while I was gone. I've cooked up 2 stockpots full of tomatoes, reducing them down and now I have one stockpot's contents in the dehydrator - I'm making powdered tomatoes out of them. I'm not sure yet whether I'll dehydrate the second pot or can puree or spaghetti sauce. I still have quite a few tomatoes left to ripen, but the main glut is cooked up. I saved seeds from each variety, plus I'm going to be able to clip starts from the plants in the garden that got frosted last month. They have new growth! The cuttings I took after the frost mostly didn't make it, so it's nice to get another try. I have a few plants growing in the house, and would like to add more.

I picked elderberries on BLM land outside of Pendleton, and they made the trip home without a problem. I dehydrated them and spent today separating the berries from the stems. Ended up with a pint and about 1/4 of a pint of dried elderberries. I kept a half pint jar for a fair entry next year, and put most of the rest in vodka to make a tincture of them. Supposed to be good for flu and cold prevention and treatment.

I have another broody hen, a RIR this time, and my other broody has at least 4-5 chicks hatched. She has a lot more eggs under her, so it'll be interesting to see how many actually hatch. It's been quite a year for broody hens - they've been trying to hatch chicks since January, and will be raising chicks into the end of the year, if they hatch and raise these clutches.

Homesteader- Glad you're feeling better.
MGM- There are places on the Internet to review motels, often on the motel's website itself. I do read these and they have guided me several times into making reservations elsewhere. Shocking what that employee put you thru and I totally understand why you lost it.
Bought "bead mazes" for the grandniece and the "great grandson".My DD called them "roller coasters" back in the day- no wonder I couldn't find them on Amazon. The humidity left me exhausted after doing some hand clipping in the back yard (city). GFB and I harvested cinnamon vine aerial tubers and wound up giving them to the neighbor who came out in his backyard to talk to us- this is the one who used to eat the carambolas off our tree as a boy. He's very enthusiastic about possibly gardening himself, but he has to wait until his 3 puppies (just as enthusiastic as he is, but for things like digging up) get older and better trained.
I made dinner last night- chicken and mushroom alfredo. That chicken breast I got all the bodega gave me enough meat for the stirfry Monday, last nights dinner, and we still have a piece a little bigger than a deck of cards. Don't know if the "no-cooking" stage I went thru was related to the heat and humidity extremes over the summer or what but I am REALLY glad to have enough interest and energy to cook again.
GFb will be heading out to the lake tonight- he works Friday- and I will be setting my alarm for 5 a.m. for taking off for Charleston!
Think I need one more and then I'll face the day!

MGM - What a great story about your trip - thanks for sharing, that was fun to read!

I usually drink coffee here at work and eat my breakfast mix, but this morning I felt the urge to stop and get a Cappuccino, cost me a 1.29 and bacon & egg biscuit at Braums. It was good!

I p/u another book I had on hold at the Library. I'd picked up two on Tuesday and checked out 2 or 3 books on CD, on Monday, to listen to in the car. I'm glad I did. I'm always in a better mood when I listen to audio books during my work commute. I LOVE learning something new!
I went to the Health Store yesterday and restocked Rhodiola and Sam-E for myself & DD. Those combo supplements ward off depression and have certainly helped me with menopause symptoms.

While I ate lunch I started a book called "Enlightenment for Idiots". So far it's very entertaining and funny.
I just finished the book "Almost Amish" which was pretty inspiring. She gives a good perspective on sustainability and the part Christians can play in environmentalism and such.
I ended up ordering "Living More with Less" on Amazon, because it's out of print now and I couldn't find it in our Library System. I got a really good price on it though and no shipping cost. Now I just need to get all of them read!

We are supposed to get rain for the next 2 days and the weather is cooling off. Remnants from a storm in the Pacific from what the weather experts are saying.
Well, I best get busy. Have a great day, everyone!!

GMB, I used the internet reviews to pick the hotel - that's the sad part. I'm still composing my review for posting and an e-mail to the head of the company. I'm just now getting to the point where I don't do a slow boil thinking about it, or I'd have already done it.
Vickie-, thanks. I worry that I post too much or make my posts too long. I left out some of the fun stuff we did along the way, like finding a viewpoint on (I think) BLM land that had a couple elderberry shrub-trees loaded with fruit. I picked enough to fill a flat and brought them home. Most people bring home postcards and maybe a pinecone...I bring home elderberries, rocks, canning jars and bras, lol! We also trailed a small herd of cows down the road on the way out from that viewpoint - it's open range country, and you wait for the cows to decide to leave the road.

We have chicks, lots of them! My broody hen momma hatched out 15 live chicks, plus lost 3, and still has some eggs that may or may not hatch. Abby and I moved her into a rabbit hutch to get her into safe surroundings with food and water, and to give her a clean nestbox. The bedding in the bucket she had set in was nasty to the extreme. I posted about the moving process in S&EP - suffice to say, Momma hen was not a happy camper! She is an excellent mother, but I wanted to make sure the chicks could get to food and water and still return to the nest under momma to stay warm while she tries to hatch the last 5-6 eggs.

I took a few pics of Abby with her horse today - she actually asked for a photo shoot! I like a couple of them - I need to figure out posting pics so I can share them with y'all. Then I sent her out to go riding. While she was gone, I went through her room. I was disappointed to see how much of a mess it was. I hauled out a full paper grocery bag of trash, a bunch of dirty dishes, and found that she'd been into the candy, gum and snack supplies in the pantry. She was told that those items were off limits without asking, as some of it is saved for later occasions, so I was sorry to see that she was unable to follow the rules I'd given her when she first came home. I should have made her do the cleaning, but I needed to see for myself what was going on in there. I talked to her about it when she got back from her ride, and told her that since she was not able to manage food and drinks in her room, she was no longer able to take food, drinks, or dishes into that area. She'll have to eat at the table. I also told her that she was on notice that if she was not able to handle following the house rules, she'd be finding a new house. She took that very somberly, as she should. She likes being home!

MGM, Our gd is also home again for a while, and disregarding all the rules we've always had, so we may have a showdown soon if things don't change. At least her husband is doing most of what we ask, such as not wearing the boots he wears into the dog pens into the house, but wet towels, food and such end up in their room, too. I'm with GMB, I'm just not going to be tromped upon, if they can't respect us and our space, and what we do for them, they can do without the help. It's hard when they have issues as Abby and Ash do, to just cut them loose, but they have to learn! I for one, can't wait til they find their own place.

Tomorrow is my Mama's 93rd birthday. I found her a cardigan sweater and pants, and will give her a bunch of lotto scratch tickets. She loves those. Blueberry pancakes for breakfast and chicken for dinner. She just doesn't want any fuss, but it's an accomplishment to live that long, and I'd like to do something special, but won't upset her.

Travis, I'm anxious to see that log crib! What a neat idea. Glad you found the problem with the tractor, too.

Homesteader, I hope you get feeling better. What a miserable thing to have, and I hope you get some relief from it.

Jan - thank you for you kind words. Life is a lot tougher now with this disease. Most times I get thru ok, but that last 2 week run - wow. It's hard to keep any perspective when in that much pain, plus the ickyness of it all. Anyway, I can only do my best at coping with it I guess and try to be forgiving of myself when I feel like I just can't take it anymore.

Good to see everyone having adventures! I love long posts, don't ever hesitate to do long posts! Mine get a bit long at times too!

DG is coming this evening - and will go home Sunday eve. Just the right amount of time this time for me I think - still not up to over doing anything. It's so tiring to have a 6 year old around - especially when we're outside. There are snakes here and black widows and scorpions. I almost have to match her step-for-step, just to be sure she's safe. At 6 she still has that take-off-and-run, or reach into a plant innocence, that as adults we are more careful of doing (in case of creatures), and you know how fast a 6 year old can move!

There were coyotes just the other side of one of our fencelines this morning, yipping away. Couldn't see them thru the tamarisks of course, but they were right there. I love to hear them, and that close, wow that was wonderful.

That swiss chard out there, wow, after harvesting it a few weeks back - well, now it's just another massive growth of it. We have plenty put up now (and it is soooo good canned, especially if you sprinkle seasoned rice vinegar over it) but I don't know anyone who would want it.

I always thought, when we chose to move here, that there would be so many gardens, and way more goats/cattle etc. There are a lot of chickens. But not so much the other stuff. Most parcels here begin at 2.5 acres. We don't know anyone here that homesteads like we do. I just have always thought that was odd. I guess the appeal of not being in the city, no smog, no traffic on one's days off, is worth it to some to do the commute. There is no employment here at all. (not even a stoplight or gas)

I need to get back into what I had planned on doing next before my intestines went berserk! Canning: applesauce, chicken, more cole slaw..........

...........hey, did any of you make the canned coleslaw?..............

and bacon. And, I'm totally out of Southwest Pepper beans, and have only 3 quarts left of the Bacon and Molasses beans, so need to do those too. But not until next week as DG is coming out.

I think it's time to make jam and can it with her. She hasn't canned anything with us yet. I think she'd love that - she's such a country girl!

Ok, well, that's long winded enough I guess! Off to see what trouble I can get into and hide it from Travis!

Happy Friday, All!
Homesteader - you sound like me. I can handle one night with the kids, but they tucker me out. So glad you are feeling better!
It could be the price of feed and lack of forage for the cattle and goats in your area. We couldn't raise cattle in an arid area, it's too expensive.

Jan - HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to your Mom, wow, 93 - that is an accomplishment!

Michelle - you are one patient lady.

GMB - have fun on your trip!
*****

It's raining and much cooler today. I'm going to enjoy this weekend - now I can put on my sweats to lounge around the house for the evening.

I went to p/u dog food at lunch. I rec'd a $5 off coupon from Petco and found a large bag of the Blue Buffalo food we use on sale. Yay!
Then I stopped by my friend's Art Gallery to say hello and invite her to lunch - it was a good lunch and two hours later I finally made it back to work. Gonna have to make that time up!

Our grands are coming out to spend Saturday night with us, so I've got to get the vacuuming done and the sheets washed tonight.
I'm definitely ready for the weekend.

Have a great evening, everyone!!

Woke up Thurs at noon, from working nights. Helped a neighbor cut a gum tree down. Later I took all the pump stuff off the swimming pool and covered the pool, for the winter. Friday morning, after sausage and eggs, I started on the log crib. Did not get s as much as I wanted to done, but it went well anyway. It took a lot of coffee breaks and thinking!! The pictures I have attached below:

The first picture, is of the logs, Lodge Pole Pine. I brought them from Montana this summer.

Daily Journal October 2014(everyone Welcome to Post) - Daily Journal & Everybody Has a Story Archives

The next two pictures are of the jig on my table saw I use to cut the tenons.

Daily Journal October 2014(everyone Welcome to Post) - Daily Journal & Everybody Has a Story Archives

Daily Journal October 2014(everyone Welcome to Post) - Daily Journal & Everybody Has a Story Archives

This picture is of the drill and holes in the log that take the tenon.

Daily Journal October 2014(everyone Welcome to Post) - Daily Journal & Everybody Has a Story Archives

This 5th picture, is of the Jig I made to find the center of the log, so I can drill a guide hole in for the tenon jig on the table saw.

Daily Journal October 2014(everyone Welcome to Post) - Daily Journal & Everybody Has a Story Archives
