It’s a cool morning getting out of bed here in Cottage Country. The temperature at the time of this post was sitting at 8.5 C | 47.3 F. But in saying that it will warm up a lot as the day moves forward.
Highway 522 is quiet these days.
On another note, I did get to taking apart an old boat trailer I had lying around for a while. Things worked out well, and now I have a bunch of parts and steel I can use to make things with in the future if need be. And another thing is it doesn’t take up a lot of room now, that it’s been taken apart. Actually I enjoyed taking it apart which took me three hours or so while enjoying the sunshine. It’s nice to be able to do these things.
Today I will put the parts away where I can get at them and then clean up my shop a wee bit, as when I get to working on things it seems, as my wife says … “You sure can make a mess.” She is right, too.
My wife and I also cleaned up a portion of our vegetable garden yesterday, pulling out our tomato plants for another year along with some pesky weeds. We will do the rest once what we have still growing is finished for the year, which is some cucumbers, acorn squash, lettuce, spinach and beans. Oh, and some of our peppers haven’t turned color yet, so leaving them on for a touch longer. But if it looks as if we are going to have some frost, I will pick them. As I don’t want to lose them. They are a nice size this year and will make for some really nice red and yellow pepper jelly. My lovely wife is a master at making it, and it sure tastes good on some crackers with cheese, or other things of choice. Just one more item that will save us some money come winter, along with eating healthy. It’s nice to be self efficient, which my wife and I have been all our life’s.
With that I am off for an egg on lettuce with a sliced up tomato which should hold me till lunchtime. I stopped eating bread as I found over the years it causes a lot of inflammation in the body. I feel a lot better not eating it, and truth be told I don’t miss it one bit. We use lettuce instead for making sandwiches. Along with the occasional thin wrap. Hmm, maybe being so cool outside, I might take a few extra minutes and have a hot chocolate. Just because I can.
Have a great day! GW
