Beautiful start to the thread, Kelli!
Celia: your day can't get much better, can it? Sounds very peaceful!
Marylyn: so good to hear from you and to know that you are okay! We've been hearing "through the grapevine" but it is so much better to hear directly from you. Here's hoping your power is restored soon--we've missed you!
Welcome back, Pepper! We've missed you, too!
Ric: Wu makes a good construction supt.! LOL
Sharon and Celia: Isis and Boo make a good pair! LOL

42 F now at 10:30 am. It's going to be a stretch to reach the 50's.
Forecast from wunderground:
Mostly cloudy with isolated rain and snow showers. Patchy fog in the morning. Becoming partly cloudy in the afternoon. Highs in the mid 40s to lower 50s. Light winds.
Yesterday my DH and DD began the drive out to the Seattle, Washington area. They encountered snow about 100 miles from here, but not sticking to the road. As of this morning, they are in the Yukon and expect to be in Washington on Thursday.
She/family are moving and will need the travel trailer/pickup down there and in place at the new home, before they/family, fly down in October. They've lived with us for a year and half, so will really miss them and the grandkids.
Kelli ~ that's such a beautiful photo for the new thread; what a nice time of year to have been there.
marsue~interesting technique (not that I'd ever tried); good pic, too.
Last night~ 7pm sundown~ taken from our deck.

Currently 82 here and sunny. I don't even want to think about highs in the 40's just yet!

Kelli, great pics, thanks for the tour!
I had to be a plumber today and change a piece from the battery in the bathroom...ugh! Last night we heard something dropping and it was a leak. I had to turn off the water last night and I couldn't do it from inside...I had to do it outside, in the small cellar we have for the water and electricity control...it was dark and I had to use a lamp. It's not ready yet, still the generator has to be installed.
Still cold , but sunny today. The geraniums are blooming and Junior is sleeping!LOL

35F Heavy frost ~ sure looks pretty as it glitters in the porch light. Dyson dark at 7am.
We will miss them terribly; Kelsey, 7, asked how could they have Thanksgiving dinner without cousins.
MySharona~the woodpecker's head is certainly bright. The peppers look good, too. I love your forecast:)
pepper~sounds great, too.
Adina~Hope things are better and the leak is fixed. Junior looks great.
kelli~ Best Bet is gorgeous. Like you, small spaces are something to avoid:) I love reading of cave exploration, but even then, makes me queasy as they describe how the pressure of the earth presses all around and the dark, tight space can become claustrophobic.
marsue~love the blue and golds in the photo. Thanks, too.
Elem. School, yesterday. The view behind the school looked nice and bright.

We are having the gorgeous fall weather that only occurs like this, in Pa. AM readings in the mid 40's, warming up to 70 by noontime and 75 during the latter part of the day. Our dogwood trees are starting to turn red. (Some of the first to turn). I am digging disposible daylilies and the ground is dry down 4 inches. Hard to get the shovel in the ground, but easy to shake the dry soil off the roots. Have not had rain since TS Hanna.

But tomatoes are still giving fruit and the parsley is producing those big green and black caterpillars that turn into gorgeous Black Swallowtail Butterflies. I picked one off the porch floor today to put him on a morning glory vine before someone stepped on him. He was looking for a place to spin his cocoon. They give off an ugly odor when you pick them up. Guess it is a survival tactic so the birds drop them rather than eat them. Had to go wash my hands.

kelli~the people at the river's edge look as if they are lovin' the view, too. Gorgeous pic.
marsue~made me almost cry too, when she said that. As excited as they are about moving to Washington state, they don't have a grasp of the time/distance/cost of a visit.
The butterfly/flower is so pretty; love the wings.
kwanjin~your little rose is beautiful.
MySharona~the E. Hookier is spectacular. Windy w/floods; quite a fall day.
Dyson~glad it warmed up a bit; hope you can see daylight before winter sets in:)

Sharon: that little black-capped bird is most likely a Black-capped Chickadee. They hang around with the Titmice. Where there is a titmouse, you will usually always find a chickadee nearby. Don't ask me why.

Marsue, next month we'll be looking up at a billion single strand webs that baby spiders ''fly'' on. It's something to see, and at the end of the day, the ground is covered in them. Webs, not spiders :o) I don't know what kind of spider it is. I need to find out.

Sally, I wonder if your spiders are the same kind of spider that "Charlotte" was in "Charlotte's Web". Her "children" flew away on those strands.
That's a nice ornament your hubby made for you!

Hi, everyone! Just popping in to say hello again. We still have no power. (insert pouty face here) I'm back at church, but I forgot the power cord and the laptop battery doesn't last very long, so I'm typing fast!! I'm going to have to go to a friend's house tomorrow to do some laundry... Maybe I'll be able to sneak in between loads on her computer. :-)

I miss you all!!!

The different colors are caused by different microorganisms that live in the water. Different species live at different temperatures and pH. Collectively, they are known as thermophiles. Most are bacteria. One species that lives in a geyser basin is used in DNA analysis.

Sally Sorta glad we dont have the aerial spiders you have LOL! I like what your Dh did to the weather vane.
Marylyn I hate that you still dont have electricity. So glad you have somewhere to go to get chores taken care of. Is there a new eta on the electricity?
Kelli I have to say your favorite picture is mine too : ) Its gorgeous!
Adina Chuckling at your picture! Gary is ok, ran a fever last night, but nothing too bad. Were all looking forward to the day we dont have to go through this anymore.

Un, Kelli, if memory serves me correctly, the water in those pools at Yellowstone is hot enough to melt the skin off your bones! No, I don't even "almost" want to get in! LOL Your favorite picture almost looks like the ground is covered with snow but I know better. Maybe I should say it looks like a moonscape, except for the water!
Ah, Sharon, a tree frog! I hope you warned Kiska! LOL
Pepper, you seem to be having a perfect weather day every day! Who could ask for more? :o))
Celia: do the neighbor's apples fall into your yard so you can enjoy them, too?
edited to add: Adina, I forgot to say that the puppies are precious and they are doing what puppies do best: sleeping in the sunshine! LOL
It's almost a perfect day here although just a bit warm. Currently 84 and plenty of sunshine.

Kiska: watch out!--Toad alert!

Mau, the apples do indeed fall into our yard! However, they are not edible for humans as they have never been sprayed for bugs. LOTS of worms in them! LOL The birds can have them. Same with the cherry tree on the other side. Cute little toad. We've tried naming the critters that come into our yard. They usually get a different name every time. Does he have a name?

Celia Thats a cute little goldfinch! Do you have many? I call all American Anoles Jack, Cuban Anoles are Juan and squirrels are Fred or Freddie (girl).
Marsue I have toads too! I love frogs, they eat bugs and the only defense mechanism they have is that bad taste they give off when something tries to eat one. No poison and they dont bite.

Adina - my gosh your pups look great, I'd make them a cottage, too!

We are doing autumn things. Put a new floor on the front porch and steps - materials $247.00. Luckily my son did the finish carpenter work. Gosh Used to buy 6X10"s for about
$5.00 bucks a piece, now they are 9.75. LOL (And don't forget they are only 5+ inches wide). Lovely weather for working. Temps under cloudy skies were in the 60=70 deg. range with a stiff breeze.

We are supposed to get rain ( they say) Thursday, Friday and Saturday from a storm off the NE coast. We certainly can use. it. I will believe it when I feel it falling from the sky. Our current cool temps have allowed me to do several wheelbarrow loads a day of weeding, debriding and plant removal - so I'm a happy camper. Look on the bright side!!!

The pictures are TOPS Kelli!

Sharon I'm glad the GF's are making their way South!
We still have tons of them up here... actually quite a few winter over in our area.

Busy this week getting caught up on missed days due to the Wind Storm Ike.
But I am taking a 3 day weekend.
Tomorrow is our ORVG Fall RU at Joycet's.
These Fall RU's are always low key events.
More Picnic than Plants oriented.
As we have many VERY talented chefs in the group it's always a good eats time.

It got downright cold in the "la-casa-apartment" last night so I broke down and bought an oil filled space heater today. Now if I can figure out how to run it without kicking the breakers off we will be more comfortable. I guess I can turn everything else off and just run the heater?

Kelli! I agree w/Ric! You have gotten to know your camera very well! Thank you so much for sharing them w/ us! The water falls keep getting better & better! :D
Pepper, Have fun! :D
Ric, You have fun, too. I think that I would probably eat too much. ;)
Dyson? Are you still getting the rain? :)
Kiska, Your pics are gorgeous! Several people at work have been talking about how beautiful Alaska must be...You have given the proof! ;) A girl at work said that her aunt lives in Anchorage & that she is ready to go w/ me! (hehe) She doesn't want to fly either! ;)
Marsue, Kiska said it! :D Don Juan is a beautiful "Lipstick Red"! :D
Marylyn, Hope that you get the 'juice' back on soon! We miss you!
Sharon, The G.F.'s on Lady M. ! What a pic! :D How is Gary doing? btw...JW loves 'his' song! ;) He looks at me w/ his little mouth in an O.( :-O) And I made a discovery day before yesterday! He was (or I thought that he was) chewing on something, but I couldn't see anything in his mouth...I stuck my finger in there probing around & What was those sharp things! 4 new teeth! in the back! (top) His mom couldn't figure out why he wasn't sleeping much (or well).

The trivia for the day is...
Which of these is an instrument used to measure humidity and dewpoint?
a) Thermometer
b) Psychrometer
c) Tachometer
d) Speedometer

Have a Great Weekend! :D

Good morning - the rain has stopped but everything is soaked. The apartment is warm dry and comfortable. Time to fire up an electric griddle and get some french toast going.

Hopefully it will dry up outside enough to get some outside work done.

Have a good day all.

We have 84 for today. Parly cloudy.

Joey I guess b for the dew point.
Dyson I admire your coping with your downsize.
Kelli, what a packed few days away you had. Did you drive the whole trip? Your pictures are worth of any calender I've ever seen.
Marylyn I hope you power is restored by the time I get this sent.
Ric, your treats are for a RU at your house?
Adina what a beautiful entrance Junior was guarding.
Sally those apples look delicious and I sure wish I had some.
Pepper have a great day with all those DGers.
Sharon 10hrs is a really long time for dear Gary. He remains in my prayers.
Kiska I guessed right on how many days Anchorage was above 70º.
Celia, I can just see those birds riding that whirlwind, like a carnival ride for them.
Marsue I too want some Don Juan lipstick.

Quoting:This is called Sour Lake. The booklet said that it is as strong as battery acid.

Makes you want to jump right in, huh, Kelli? NOT! Great pictures, BTW.
Ric and Dyson: You both are making me hungry with all the talk of cookies, etc., and Greek Meatballs and French toast! LOL
Joey: Like Celia, I'm going with B for the trivia by the process of elimination. JW has a mouthful of teeth! Pretty leaf pic.
Celia: nice photinia cuttings. Do you use a root hormone when starting your cuttings?
Sidney: the potterweed is pretty and a "new" plant to me. Never heard of it before.

My yellow mums are about to burst forth in bloom. The petunias, which are on the driveway side of this bed, have seen better days and are fading fast. that loropetalum in the middle has a few out-of-season blooms on it, too.

Sidney, yes, we drove up. DH and I both hate to fly plus we like to bring a ton of stuff with us. The first day we went from home to Provo, UT and the second from Provo to Jackson, WY. Something I ate or perhaps something that was on my hands when I ate in Pocatello, ID made me sick. I felt like I was going to die - or at least pass out - in a restroom in Idaho Falls. By the next day I felt o.k.

1988 - what did I miss that year? I think I was in Alaska, in fact pretty sure now that I think about it - 30th birthday, made some bad mistakes, lived to tell about it. Can we move to another era? Please! Like next week maybe? Some points in time do not really need to be revisited and some should be cherished forever go figure how that works.

I agree Dyson, many past events in my life will live forever, grrrr.

It came here - rain - yesterday and overnight and into today we had 2" of beautiful wet rain. This will enable my daylilies to suck up their fall nutrients for next spring. It was slow and gentle and did not run off.

Sugar, I am cleaning up for fall up here in Pa. Wheelbarrow loads of ugly daylily foliage, and more wheelbarrow loads of mulch. LOL Next spring I will sprinkle all of it with Snapshot right before a 1/2 inch rain and be weed free for most of the summer. This pre-emergent worked well this year and I have a big bag of it.

Still no word from Deb - I guess she got a lot of rain from the TS along the Atlantic coast. That is also what brought us this rain.

Great weather today. Perfect for the RU and we had quite a crowd. Great plants and door prizes and food that was to die for. Literally. :~)

Bad news: My brakes are going bad and in fact are gone on the front driver's side. My dad had to borrow my truck to get lumber since his truck can't pull the trailer right now due to bad tranny. Now both trucks are down. We are hoping we can save the rotor and have my truck going on Monday. Crossing fingers and hoping.

Hey, Pep. You're doing the right thing keeping it parked. I hope it doesn't cost too much and the rotors will be the only fix. Let us know.

I want more rain. Why can't I have more rain? ☺

It was lovely again today. We made it to 85 and had some great fluffy clouds. I came home early from work today because I didn't feel well and got to "enjoy" some of it. I did manage to get the last of the Safflowers pulled. Those things have very nasty thorns on them. Now if I could just find my little patio broom to get rid of the leftover leaves.

Gary is such a dear boy. Keeping him in our thoughts every day.

Dyson, all kinds of things went through my head when I read your post.

Mau, I did give them some hormones. They're now sitting in the shade of my patio until it gets too cold, then, into the house with them until spring.

kiska - great looking parsley. I have frozen enough for the next two years and have had a plenitude all summer to give away. Still raining - we are blessed - about 2-1/2I\" so far.

Our well pump broke this AM - about 15 yrs. old so prob needs replaced. I have buckets sitting where the rain runs off the roof and have plenty of water for flushing the toilet. Need to get a case at the store today for personal hygiene and drinking. Using paper plates, etc. Minor inconvenience compared to what our hurricane victims are going through. We DO have electric and a gas stove. And our gas stations have gasoline.

I'm way behind here, I've been sick this last 2 days , had a bad cold but I'm OK now...vacuumed the house and made the cake yesterday. The pups are causing not only damages to my pots, which they love to play with...but when they are empty,grrrrr...but they also make me and DH argue , ugh!
After such an ugly, rainy and cold week, today the sun came out and it was a little warmer, about 70.

Gary had a blood transfusion on Saturday 2.5 bags, 10 hours. The stent on his kidney will not be removed today due to the transfusion. He became anemic and 0 platelets and was whiter than white - scary.

Ric and Pepper: glad you each had a good RU. Ric, your RU thread pics were good. . .and what's an RU without lots of good food! That outhouse must have been WAY out there! Too bad that ferocious dachsund was there to block your path! LOL

kiska - some use parsley only as a garnish. We use it so many ways, chopped fine and frozen or dried in the microwave. I use it in meatloaf, filled hamburgers ( with onion and celery), soups and stews, spaghetti sauce - any where you normally add a green herb. It is very high in calcium. Some people make parsley tea, also. Have not tried it. My DH favorite is boiled potatoes garnished with fresh parsley and butter. Good also as a garnish on oyster soup or clam chowder.

Beautiful day here. Sunshine after two days of rain is a blessing - but the rain was sorely needed. Our deep well problem won't be addressed until tomorrow. Oh WELL!. We are lucky that we still have electric and gas and the refrigerators and freezers work. Sufficient unto the day, is the evil thereof.

Very pretty flowers, Joey. Glad you had a good day.

It was nice again today. Special nice because my hubby announced yesterday, he quit smoking! No stinky smoke drifting into the house, no leftover odor in the garage, no having to dodge him when he's outside and I'm trying to walk past, no cancer...

I quit years ago and he promised me he would, too. Nice surprise. I'm pleased.

Sidney Congratulations! Im so happy for you!
Se_eds Im glad you finally got some rain! I use parsley in almost every meal I make. I use mine so much the plant gets too small and I have to buy another...
Joey JW has an Alaskan sense of humor LOL (moose)! Pretty cluster of flowers. Make a list of the pros and cons of the jobs. Its mostly all about the benefits, needless to say especially the medicalsheesh it's crazy how much Medicare has paid to the doctors, hopsitals, etc...
Celia Im very glad Darrell has decided to quit smoking. Beware he will get grumpy, but that is short term. Here's a link for y'all. It's the benefits of quitting by day, month year, etc...

Sharon: good picture of the hummer. Love the sun's rays coming through the trees, too! Very pretty and serene looking! I'm going to send that link you posted to my former daughter-in-law (DGS' mother with whom we still have a good relationship). She's been trying to quit smoking--hopefully it will help her.
Celia: congrats on Darrel's quitting! Let us know how he progresses!
se_eds: you made me hungry with all that talk about parsley, etc. My mother used to make "parsleyed potatoes" quite often. I don't know why I haven't served those in a while--think I will do that soon.
Joey: That surely must be a cute nightshirt!! LOL Is that a goldenrod in your picture? What Sharon said about choosing the right job is true.

LOL, everyone, I just thought that would be a fun trick trivia question.
Daddy told me one time he had a professor that asked who authored a book he had never heard mention of before. So desperate he wrote in the professors' name.
He was the only student to ace that test.
Kiska, I think parsley is also a good nibble to lose weight. Good in my vege/beef soup.
Joey I know JW took much care in his choice of gift for his favorite granny. Is that Goldenrod?
Celia your snaps are so pretty. what's your secret?
When I quit, so far now 5 years in Nov. Parsley would probably have been better for me than the 30 lbs of sunflower seed i ate in the first year. Too much salt!
Marsue, that is a neat ear of corn. I bet the seeds will give you a bumper crop next year.
Sharon I love your sunbeam picture.
I love the slow roll to Fall in Florida.

Happy belated birthday, Joey! Sorry I missed it. I was out sick, or rather, in sick. DH caught something on the plane from Tulsa. I'll be all right in a couple days.

I'm going to have to get some coleus next year. I've grown them in the past. They'll grow here.

It is not 28% humidity. It's more like 60%, but it will go down as the day goes on.

Kelli, Thanks. :) I can certainly see why that is your fave picnic spot! And you are so to photogenic! One things for sure...you have mastered your new camera! :D
Sidney, Yes it's Golden Rod. It was very showy this year! Love that (those) Coleous! Thanks for the new desktop. :)
Marsue, These 2 jobs are totally in opposite directions. They both are office jobs, but one has the potential of being an 'outside' job & the other one requires me to have a CDL. I used to have one, but it has run out years ago. I have also had EVOC training. Both of these places have called me...I didn't go lookin'. LOL! Ya think that maybe I could play them against each other a little. No, in all seriousness I need to find out about the water service benefits...Very Key!
Well, I need to go turn in a resume...

36*~ overcast w/steel gray clouds that are ominous.
Well, the date for my daughter/family to move to Washington state has been set. They all fly out on October 15th. She/my husband drove out last week; she picked up the key, put up curtains, stocked the pantry and my husband left gifts in the gkids' new rooms. They made it down in 4 days/ driving 15 hours a day.
Flying back to Alaska takes only 3 1/2 hours.
The cost for driving out came to $2,100 for 2,400 miles and that included at least one hot meal a day and a couple of nights/motel.
Joey~JW's shirt sounds so cute~glad you've got two offers from which to choose.
MySharona~now, that's cute and so pretty.
kelli~very beautiful setting for a picnic and I think you're waay too hard on yourself:))
kwanjin~good luck to your husband~sounds great.
Sugarweed~loved the Coleous trivia and the story of the professor's quit.
se_eds~thanks for all the ideas for parsley; really a big help as I just couldn't think of a thing. Guess it's time to get creative.
Thanks, too, for all the ideas from the others here.
marsue~here, the hoses have been put away/the water turned off outside and the snow shovels put in place.
Have a good day outdoors watering; sounds pleasant.
Dyson~not quite sure what an "air handler" is, but hopefully it's not a dangerous job:))
pepper~sounds good there.
7:30pm ~ another view of the bonfire/marshmallow roast.

Sharon, keep looking up. I'm not sure it's just a midwest thing :o) Something I need to look up.

Kiska, we're close to frost later this week.

Sharon, I hope Gary is close to being done with all of this.

Kwanjin, tell Hubby how proud I am of him for quitting!!!!
