Saturday:  I'm going to restrict the main blog page starting tomorrow.

Some readers are not all that friendly and I don't want to feel put out.  Blogs should be give'n'take.  Not just take.

If you want access to this blog, please click  =>  ACCESS to see how you can get an invite of your own.

Some special someones have already been sent invites. :-D  I'll open the blog now and then to see how it goes.  I'll remind readers at that time how to get a viewer invite.

Sorry it has to be this way.  Hopefully this will be resolved in future. 


Sunday Morning - Dipped to 29 last night.  Heavy frost.  Frozen water.  This is the 2nd year in a row that we didn't make it to our traditional 1st frost date of 10/18.  They say it's gonna be another winter like last year.  Oh yippee.... *sigh*


  1. Ooooooooooooo
    I feel kinda special right now!
    I often feel like taking my blog private. I guess, in a way, I did--by eliminating comments. Hated to do it, but I managed to find my own little meanie. What is it with people? Why on earth be unpleasant? We live in interesting times, don't we?
    Have a wonderful weekend. I'm bagging leaves/clippings for the perennial borders. Not the funnest job, but the weather is BEAUTIFUL and there are HORDES of leaf-peepers up this weekend, so it's not safe to be out in the world, so here I am.

    1. Cold, but bright here. Weeding beds prior to bagging leaves tomorrow. FROST warnings tonight -- might even freeze. Brrrr. Really looking forward to having the outside stuff done. I seem to poop out earlier every year. :-( The comfy chair is looking pretty good right now. Pace yourself with the raking. Take time to fall into a pile now and then. I try to do that at least once - to keep me young. But only once. Getting up is a bitch. ;-D

  2. I know I am not visiting as much or blogging reasons.

    I can never understand why comments turn ugly. If someone doesn't agree they should just quit reading or quit commenting.

    1. Hi Glenda. Sorry to hear your knee is still giving you grief. I'm not getting spam/nasty comments since I turned off anonymous. But some folks have other ways to make themselves rude. Looks like you're getting some rain these days. Hope it's a good.

  3. well that explains what happened....thought you had taken off for parts unknown! :)
    Glad to be included in the invites!
    absolutely beautiful the last few days so must get lots done out there before the rain and inevitable cold that we know is just around the corner. Collecting seeds, digging dahlias, bringing in pots of plants to overwinter in the basement, etc., etc., etc.....

    1. It's was the moon! I blame lack of posts on the eclipse! *heh* Been pretty busy right now what with Mom stuff and running from pillar to post. Hope you catch up soon. Been making lots of soup stock and will get some entries on the Chef's page soon. Looks like rain for several days this week, so gotta rush - back out while it's dry. Don't envy you hauling those pots. Be careful. I had to give that up. Bummer....

  4. Thanks for the invite sweetie, look forward to the future posts.

    It's YOUR blog, YOUR place on the net and you should be able (within reason and decency!) to do what you want. If you have to make the blog private to remove unwanted visitors then it's sad, but it's the way the world is these days.

    Like GLD, I'm not blogging as much this year, but I hope to get back to whatever used to pass for normal :}


Thank you for visiting. I appreciate your notes, comments and questions and will try to reply to each one! :-)
