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.

If we had snow on the ground here I would be out doing snow angels naked.  These hot flashes are killing me <_<

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!
