It's 50 and breezy and was the perfect afternoon to clear the corn from the garden and "plant" my potted mint for the winter. Especially since my husband has the day off and got to do all the digging. Any day where the man gets to be in charge of the shovel is a perfect day for gardening! :lol:

Happy to see the hubs wielding the shovel today  was not used for bashing in someone's stubborn head

 

and the "MINT" was planted in that shallow grave hole.  :lol:

I'm still waiting for the inevitable reaction to the "planted" mint pots. I'm sure it will be heated, which will at least keep me warm!

 

And come on, you know me well enough to know I'm too smart to hide a body "mint" in my own back yard! :P

I should hope so. I mean, we have already discussed how impossible it would be for us to get good gluten-free food in prison. :unsure:

Isn't it good that you kept the mint in pots? Doesn't it take over the whole yard if you don't?

Yes. Yes it does. But it isn't my yard. :ph34r: They're buried in the back plot by the fruit trees and if they took all that over... who cares? But they could probably get runners in the actual yard from there. *snicker*

 

It is still in the pots. Just planted the pots. Hopefully I did everything right so they live through our winter. :)

Another cold morning...

 

 

We've got those here, but dry for now. It was a bit below freezing this morning, I needed my gloves! My winter coat is still waiting its first donning in the coat room though. I keep telling myself that as long as I don't need it it really isn't that bad yet. Besides, a quick jaunt to work at 30 isn't so bad in long sleeves and is far more effective than any amount of caffeine at getting me awake.

Much to the delight of neighbors and passerby I'm sure!

When I went through that hot flash malarkey, I would wake up hot as blazes and go outside in the middle of the night, in the dead of winter and stand there, in my nightie and I swear to you, the snow and ice around me would melt ...in a ring. I  radiated heat.

My advice? Eat more ice cream. Popsicles. Cool yourself  from the inside out.

You are not alone. I'm not a very good cook, thus the reason why i make many soups.

Still dry but cold here. We managed a non-drill fire alarm going off at the school. Spent 20 minutes out in the cold waiting for them to figure out what was going on until they let us back in to warm up. Brrrrr!!!!

No fun. :( Had that happen once a few years ago. A pipe busted on the first floor of the building and triggered it. Had to stand outside for about 5 or so minutes.

LOL :lol:

 

We're unseasonably warm up here.  The leaves are actually beautiful shades of yellow and orange instead of just freezing on the tree, turning brown, and falling off in the winter like it's done the past few years.  LOL Most of my annuals are still alive! That's almost one month later than usual.

 

I laugh at your mint battles. Dramatic laugh - Ha ha ha! Mint only comes back about half the time up here; spreading is not a big issue.

I have read 4 Almanacs and they do not agree on our weather but it doesn't look like we'll have a bad winter.

 

I used to love candles but now I don't.  Many cause me respiratory problems and they are a fire hazard.  I now use battery operated ones.  I also have tons of flashlights and battery operated lamps and lanterns.

 

Just got new quilts for daughter and me.  Very nice.  Thicker and warmer than our old ones.  Got me some new flannel gowns and ordered new slippers.  Daughter doesn't wear those things normally.  She usually sleeps in sweats.

 

My food stockpile is doing pretty well.  Maybe will get some more canned beans and once we have eaten up some of the older dried beans, I'll get a few more bags.  Just sad that my chest freezer broke.  That came in handy!

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
