Good to hear. The shedding never stops and we've observed that she still has gone thru the fall - "blowing her coat" but then it settled down and is now manageable again.

I love beautiful fall weather, when I can enjoy the colors and have the sun shining thru my windows.

I open blinds that must be closed to heat, and let..it..in.

One of my most favorite home improvements was the addition of the trellis on the front porch, which Doug and I put up together the last October he was alive.

I planted the ivy at the base the following spring, and it always makes me smile to look out on it...now also, at my beautifully colored red leaf maple in the front yard.

Fall....my favorite time of year.

I baked a loaf of bread this morning, using as an add in 1/2 cup of a Hodgson's Mill multi-grain cereal I picked up at the grocery store...it has quinoa, and all kinds of good things in it, so we'll see.

I like to buy such things at the Amish grocery in Iowa, but I didn't get there this past trip with the kids...closed on Sundays, of course...so I must make do.

I'm determined to keep at my voluminous, back yard leaves, in case I have to haul them to the curb myself before the snow sets in...a lap around the yard with the leaf rake every day is getting them to the center, and I notice this is easier than that first year.

More muscle mass and upper body strength.

If I have to get them onto a tarp, and hauled to the front, I can do that.

Hi Gail,

The bread is quite tasty, kind of dark-looking, looks almost like a rye.

I like adding grains, and always do...good and good for you...my favorite being steel-cut oats, but thought I would try this.

We're going to get some rain, and perhaps a few snow flurries this weekend. I have most of my yard things done, some trimming of bushes left.

Watching on the news tonight the wildfires in the south...yikes, don't remember ever hearing of wildfires in the south.

Not fair, when they have just had a hurricane.

You always amaze me what a 60yr lady old can do. You can work circles around some kids these days. Yes, fall is the best time of year. To get into the Christmas spirit, I watch the Hallmark channel...I know... sappy. It's the only upbeat channel out there. Have a nice Thanksgiving Maggie.

Thank you, streaminwild, but 67 is more accurate.

Doug's Mother had a vegetable garden and was mowing her own yard on a riding mower til she was at least 90, so my small feats are really not extraordinary.

Better, is what they are.

Bud, that is a beautiful campground, and we discovered it some years back.

I spent several weeks there last February, and have two weeks booked next year...it has been my jumping off point for Edisto.

I'll drive down to Edisto a couple of times, walk the beach, view the ruin of the campground and wait for next year.

I'm thinking of going up to the Outer Banks, where Doug and I were only once....plenty of pretty options by March.

Maggie

A full day yesterday, and I did two scarves for my Faithworks box in 24 hours. Would like to get that shipped by the 1st of December, so am picking up hook and yarn every time I sit down.

Going to take a break from those today, give my fingers a break, clean the little house and rake the front yard before we get rain later today...temps will then drop 20+ degrees by tomorrow.

Fire weather.

I've marked some Edisto roads on my Pocket Earth app, to drive to the end of and explore on day trips from Charleston in February....also, the very beautiful Botany Bay.

We've probably driven all of them at some point over the years, but I as solo traveler have not, and the day trips will just have to fill the need next year for Edisto love.

The nice thing about taking the Interstate, rather than exploring on foot for miles and miles, is that one then has everything one needs, for self and dog, with you.

Ahem. Just makes life easier for an old woman.

I remember that Doug and I once spent a night before our reservation on the island somewhere.... at the end of a little road by a creek, under a huge live oak.

We couldn't wait to be at Edisto, dry camped, left no trace and went on into the park the next day.

It will still be good, just different.

Life.


Maggie

There is definitely a reduction in Lily's shedding, by at least 2/3 about 4 weeks out from starting her on Shed No More.

I notice it when brushing her, and in what ends up on the floor....especially when she sits by me at night, I pet her, then have had to clean up clumps of black hair off the carpet where she's been sitting.

No noticeable clumps all this week.

Yeaaaaaayyy


The ladies at needlework group yesterday were talking about ginger tea, which sounded really good, so I found this recipe at allrecipes.com this morning and made it.

Delicious! A bit of bite from the ginger, a bit of tang from the lemon juice.

I doubled the recipe, putting the remainder in the frig to reheat at will. I sliced my ginger thinly, instead of grating it, and used 1/2 Splenda and 1/2 dark brown sugar. Yum.

This is their picture, tho I do have mugs like that...great for hot whiskey.

Honey-Lemon Ginger Tea

4 cups water
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup grated ginger root

3 tea bags
2 lemons, juiced
3 tablespoons honey

Stir water, brown sugar, and grated ginger root together in a saucepan; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove saucepan from heat and add tea bags; steep tea to desired strength, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove and discard tea bags.

Stir lemon juice and honey into the tea; strain into a pitcher.

Yes, but we love them so much.

Seriously, this product works, and I am expecting the shedding will reduce a bit more before it levels off.
