Don't worry, I've got plenty to do - walls, cornice and ceiling! If I lie on my side, I might never get up!

Getting out of the car seat in the garage? Sometimes I'm so comfortable, I stay there for a while. I look after email and FB matters while there and come into the house eventually so no one thinks I'm dead.

Rain is still missing. Did not arrive as promised. There is still plenty of time but..........

I'm ready for a gentle Fall. It must be terrible to live somewhere without seasons.

Local Finnish guys says to his friend (in Finnish): "Remember the great times we had last summer?"

Friend says: "I must have been drunk that weekend."

LOL. I sometimes feel that way.

On a different note it was time to rack some wine from the primary to a secondary fermenter so we had a tasting session of the raw unaged wines. They were not too bad and are supposed to improve with aging.

The biggest surprise was my wife saying the potato wine was pretty good. She drinks very little and was fully prepared to hate the tater wine. Something that started out looking like mop water is turning into something.

Turning sugar water and stuff into free booze sure floats my boat.

I'm feeling a little woozy just reading your post.

Today is a busy day - not with work though. In fact, the week is busy. The weather seems to be cooperating, the boss is happy, my knee isn't wonky any more.

Life is good - at least for the start of the week anyhow.

Life is really good; my pond runneth over. We got a downpour about 3AM this morning.

About 8 this morning I forced myself to go out and open the valve so todays rain would divert to the yard.

I even broke down and got a pair of sweat pants after that. Beef vegetable soup is what's for dinner.

You are way more productive than I am these days. Today, I just went to physio, then the gym, then Costco.

Dinner? I think it's meatball sandwiches. And a vegetable, or course.

I take by spells.

I would love to learn to make good meatballs. Mine always resemble golf balls with amount the same flavor. I've never found a frozen store bought one I liked.

The ones we're eating tonight in sandwiches are leftovers from the other day. It was a Swedish meatball recipe that I think called for a smaller size than the ones we made. They are actually "whipped" before making the balls. That said, the consensus was they were "ok", but the majority here would rather go for the more standard Italian style meatballs.

Clearly the key is spices - but I think equally important is the mix of meats. We use a mix of beef, pork and veal. It seems to give them a better consistency, flavour and seem to be the overall "winner" around here.

What I can tell you here at the keyboard, is that all our meatballs are pan fried to "brown" them with a crust, then baked in the oven at 350F. I'm not sure how long, but I'd say 20-30 minutes. I'll confirm the cooking time and temp at some point soon.

I suspect the General will tell you there are some bread crumbs in there somewhere.

Looks like this coming weekend will be the end of tomato season in KY, 36F Sat night. I am lucky to still be harvesting and a lot of people have pulled their vines.

Yes, of course. I'm just not sure of the other spices.

Get those tomatoes in ASAP! Unless there's some sort of tomato ice wine thing?

I've still got some strawberries growing that the critters haven't been able to steal - yet!

Strawberries? This late in the season? Ever-bearing I presume?

I may take a shot at making my grandmothers green tomato relish. I did not care for it as child but maybe my tastes have changed as I did not much care for girls either back then.

Going out to inspect the damage just a bit later when it warms up.

Second round of strawberries - could be ever-bearing, I can't say for sure.

Preparing the "under" bow-window exterior - scraping paint, sanding, priming and two coats of exterior paint later this week.

The under part would kill me. I also hate exterior painting.

That does remind me I have to do the same to the garage door trim.

I'm fortunate in that the model of house I chose, for the most part, has a maintenance-free exterior.

Most of the hard work as far as landscaping hard-scapes (walkway and rear patio) has been subcontracted out. All the plantings (perennials, shrubs and trees) we've done hands on.

.
The downside of that, at least for me, is that after 24 years those never paint aluminum gutter are looking pretty crappy and it doesn't wash off. You can power wash the siding just fine but the trim and guttres are a challenge.

I'm going to be out of this place in another 15 years or so because of the stairs, so before that time, I'll probably end up replacing the roof, furnace, AC and maybe the kitchen appliances. Gutters - as long as they work - they'll stay.

Those are all big ticket items.

We've done the roof, driveway, two AC units and all the kitchen appliances. Of those the driveway is the only one that ticked me off. A properly poured driveway should not fail in 20 years. I own strong flat concrete at other houses that is much, much older.
