Forgot about the driveway. Mine isn't in bad shape, there's just a little part down by the road/curb that is crumbling away a bit. However, it's a "builder" driveway that was installed roughly 13 years ago.

:shrug:

I did all appliances last year, added a big freezer to the basement as well, did a kitchen reno, redid the main floor in hardwood, a couple of big garage shelves, had the basement done also. but that's about it. And that's enough spent in 13 years.

You are right on target.

I mowed / mulced in place the leave today. Can't really say the grass needed mowing.

Just looked at the weather. Today is a great golfing day weather, but unfortunately, it's a stay at home and do stuff day.

Was hoping to golf on Monday, then take the clubs home for the winter, but the good weather that was to be on Monday, has decided to moved to Sunday. Good for turkey day I guess.

So, last game of the year yesterday.

UPDATE: Just looked ahead to next weekend's weather - there's hope! Saturday and Sunday look like possible golf days!!!

Your knees may appreciate the 'no golf'.

Spent yesterday at the ER - kidney stone. I've been told the pain is similar to child birth. It's amazing that an object 4mm wide inside the human body can cause so much pain.

Thanks. Too groggy to enjoy the gravy, but I'll try.

And a Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all the Canadian members too!

I've never had the pleasure but know several guys that it brought to tears. Watched a video illustration sometime back on the subject and fully understand why. It like trying to pass a small cockle burr. Pretty apt description. That little sucker digs in and wants to stay.

When you did not post yesterday I though the gold did you in.

Hope you get to feeling better quickly.

I was not fun to be around, and after explaining the story, 4 times; first to triage, then administration, then ultrasound, then MRI and then the attending student doctor I stopped her in her tracks. I said get the ER doctor in here and now and get some meds ready!

Did I mention I was not fun to be around?

Still had another attack last night, but had some powerful meds on hand to get me through the night. Today, I'm fine, but hard to say when I'll get another attack.

If you don't see me posting, you'll know why.

Literally, yes, it should!

Well, we got our first frost overnight, and whatever was left in the flower pots are deciding whether to hang on for a few more days or just give up.

Am feeling well enough to begin the outside close up today. It's been on the list of things to do, but stuff has gotten in the way.

We came close to frost, some parts of town got it, we did not.

I made 7 pints of Green Tomato Relish yesterday and developed an improved respect of my grandmother who made it with a hand cranked grinder. Even if that all metal grinder worked better than the Kitchenaid one on the mixer it was still a tremendous amount of work.

I finally decided modern tools are better and used the food processor for the second half of the dice.

I wish I had her actual recipe. I doubt she put as many onions as the recipes I found online. To my memory hers looked darker in the jar.

That is a nasty way to spend Thanksgiving!

Looking for winter flower/plants to replace our hanging baskets. This gardening thing totally new to us. We used to have a North facing balcony that only fuchsias would grow on (if ya rotated the basket every once in a while)

Ya, Friday was a real treat!

Hmmm. North facing would get little to no light - maybe afternoon light in the summer.

Winter plants here are more about boxwoods, euonymus, small spruce/needle kind of things. But they're in the ground, not baskets.

Our basket/planter is going to get first the fall look, then shortly after, the winter/woody kind of look - the kind of things that cost $35 or more at CTire or other similar stores.

Putting away the hoses today, but not before giving all the big shrubs and trees a good drink!

In your location I seem to recall fairly mild winters????? Pansies? Kale?

The wife grows some trailing thing in some of her pots that seems to over-winter outside here so you could do some of that. I will asl her what it is.

You put your hoses away for the winter?

Yep, I have to drain the hoses and open spigots to drain any water.

I must have not drained one of the spigots properly last fall, which lead to it leaking outside whenever under pressure. I checked everything - seals, washers etc - but it looks like part of the housing is cracked somewhere just back of the spout. And now I need to open the drywall ceiling in the basement to replace the spigot assembly.

Note: re giving the big shrubs and trees a big drink of water yesterday - we had a pretty torrential downpour overnight and it's continuing into today.

Yep. I pumped the pond down to about 6" of water in the deep end and made sure the spout was set to route the roof water to the backyard. Looking out after daylight I have a foot or more in the deep end. Sigh.

Here's an interesting factoid I discovered a week or so ago: When golfing in the fall, most courses are blowing out the watering lines at the beginning of October (at least here at this latitude), which means the course is dependant upon rain for upkeep of the fairways. Well, when you don't get that much rain, the fairways are hard, and you get an extra 25 yards of "bounce and roll".

And here I thought it was increased power an fluidity of my swing.

Whatever makes you feel good.

They used to do the course here at the end of Oct. I guess the people with the equipment have a lot of courses and home to blow before the freeze sets in.

The boss wanted a coconut cream pie for her birthday and making it wore me out. A real from scratch one is quite a bit of work.

Oh, love coconut cream pie.

We go to Swiss Chalet (a chicken and ribs franchise restaurant here) maybe twice per year, which strangely coincides with the actual number of slices of coconut cream pie I eat in a year.

Hmmmmmmm….
