CoTT 2 House of Cards


Kitt

Recommended Posts

G'day y'all. It's starting out wet and dreary here. A front is passing through bringing rain through the night. It's forecast to clear later this morning. We're listening to a cd of soft jazz and being lazy. Been busy housecleaning since Mum is due the end of next week. Her flight is late Friday the 24th, arriving just after 10:30pm. The airport is about 90 minutes away so it will be late when we arrive home. I still have her room and bath to clean and want to give the kitchen a thorough cleaning. Trying to get the heaving cleaning done now as I am scheduled for surgery the morning of the 29th, exact time unknown until the day before. I'm having a ventral hernia repaired so will have restrictions and don't want things left hanging for mum to do. I have a CT scan scheduled for next Tuesday, because the hernia is encapsulated the surgeon wants to see the inside of my belly to avoid any surprises. Normally he would do the repair by laparoscopy but mine is significant enough that he is planning an actual midline incision. We're treating it as day surgery unless an overnight stay becomes advisable. I don't anticipate any problems and will be glad when it's fixed. What began as a small bump the size of a golf ball 4.5 years ago is now bigger than my fist and becoming uncomfortable. I had hoped to have it corrected last year before things went askew.

Blessed be.

Missing you @Marty. Hope all is well.

So... I bought a new car. No, I absolutely didn't need one... the one I have is a 2018, and only has 20K on it... but I've liked this new car I've bought for a while now, and it is changing quite a bit in the 2023 model coming out next year. That means this was my last chance to buy a new one in the body style I like(2022). It's a little bigger with a bigger engine, which I don't need, but it drives like a dream... and the gas mileage is comparable... and it was a good deal in my opinion. There aren't many left in the color I want, so they had to get one in from quite a distance away, so I probably won't get it until Saturday at the earliest. I purchased it on Monday evening. :rolleyes:  

I need to get a new car

This year I've gotten the best crop of tomatoes I've ever had. I get at least six or seven ripe tomatoes a day, and there's still lots to come. I've been having them with every meal. :) ... I think it's because I moved the tank they're in into a place that gets more sun.

My peppers weren't as prolific as last year. Some of the earlier ones rotted, but the later ones were fine, though small. Excellent taste however.

My single tomato plant is producing a lot right now too. I planted a single dwarf plum type in a pot on my deck. I think part of it is the amount of rain recently. It's getting more water than if I water by hand.

Clo must be hiding the warm weather still…

It was chilly today, down to 4C tonight. that’s the same temp as my fridge

0:) Need I remind you our resident Canadian had a dryer warmer summer than me, if not all of us -_-

It's sunny here but not that warm, just reaching 20°C and now that it's turned 6pm it's getting colder I find.

Sign the night are cold now: all 3 cats slept in the house last night.
