CONGRATS!!

And I believe, come winter, it'll be a favorite spot.



Truthfully I cheated. I ran one leg over the top of a dresser that is in a hall, so the other leg missed the wall. But it was still up in my face and I couldn't see exactly how it was going. Knocked some stuff around on the dresser. Just thankful I didn't break anything.

The only way to get it into my apartment to the living room. The hallways are very small and narrow and I have stuff in them.

Not sure I follow what you mean about "For the life of me I can't imagine ANYone doing that".

If you mean my brother's friend leaving me to do the work alone. He seems to be getting lazy.

I think it will. Like I said to Sig. I've already sat on it to watch tv and it is very comfy.

Out for a walk on a bright but cold looking day. Will need a scarf in a few more days as it is getting coold out.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.



"Should be doing some recycling but I am still sore from moving that recliner into my place on Sunday."

I'm not surprised!

I tried to imagine myself doing the same thing ... and in my mind, it just wasn't happening. Then I tried to imagine my neighbor doing the same thing (who I helped remove a very well-rooted shrub behind a retaining wall which was really hard work) and in my mind he wasn't managing it either.

It was a true feat, I think!

"I have got to stop watching cooking shows after supper. They make me hungry."

You watch cooking shows too? You probably get a different selection of shows than me, but recently I've been watching America's Test Kitchen (US + popular global recipes like pot-stickers), Cook's Country (US and US regional), Lidia's Kitchen (Italian), My Greek Table (w/ Greek island variations and specialties), and The Barefoot Contessa (US). Though over time I've watched other shows like The Pioneer Woman, The Kitchen, Healthful Indian Flavors with Alamelu, 30-Minute Meals, Valerie's Home Cooking, and so on.

My problem is I have SO many recipes that sound good that I haven't tried yet!



IRL I have 2 batches to cook up - one is a standby favorite, a Greek style crustless pie made with lots of kale (I've substituted well-drained spinach which was VERY tasty), crumbled feta, lemon, potatoes (I've also used cooked quinoa and it was EXCELLENT!), and thyme, with an immersion blendered egg and ricotta binder, among other things. And then I'll cook my next first-time-ever experiment which will be curry-flavored chickpea-flour chicken and vegetable-filled biscuits.

So my cat has been having hairball problems. And I used to occasionally give him a petromalt-like product to help the hairballs. Which he used to like, until he didn't, a couple of days ago. Sigh. He'll hardly let me brush him, so aside from shaving him down, without the petromalt I was at a loss for that to do.

But then I remembered I have a couple of smallish plastic bags filled with organic dried catnip from a coworker who used to grow and dry it, and give it away to people he knew who had cats. (Sometimes he'd even buy long, cheap, non-fuzzy white socks and stuff them with catnip to give away as toys. He was a Harley-loving cat-guy.) And a small crumbling of that over the hairball remedy worked wonders for its likeability!

We'll see how that goes going forward.

Not really a feat. Just me doing what I had to do. I will get some chores done tomorrow. Almost fell asleep earlier this evening in that chair.

Yes, I do. What I get is a mix of Canadian or at least 1 Canadian show called, "Wall of Chef" which has home cooks putting up dishes for Canada's top Chefs to judge. That was on tonight. Then I can watch "Chopped", I have a tendency to watch all the Holiday baking shows. Just finished Halloween Baking Champion last night(Monday] Then around the beginning of November the Food Network will start running the Christmas baking shows which include Christmas Wars, that show features cake artists and sugar artists working together. Then I watch things like "Guy's Grocery Games" and "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives". I don't like Ree Drummond but she usually judges on one of the Christmas baking shows.

As I've said I have some pretty basic recipes that I stick too. Because I like them and I can do them blindfolded practically. Though maybe next year I will branch out a bit more.

I just got some chicken legs the other day and cooked them off. The leg I ate tonight wasn't quite cooked all the way through so I threw the meat I took off the bone into a pot and added rice to it. Cooking both together.

Tomorrow I need to get some veg. I have a little bit of frozen broccoli left. Not sure what I will get.

I literally laughed out loud when I read this "Almost fell asleep earlier this evening in that chair." I'm guessing now you know the seductive power of a comfortable recliner!

In any case, I hope your remaining aches will go away soon.

Yeah .. Ree Drummond. She gets on my nerves a bit. I used to watch her show because she had a fair bit of regional cooking. But the more I watched the more I realized that she uses the same mix-n-match ingredients in the same way over and over and over ... today I'm using shrimp and broccoli for stir fry and tomorrow it'll be pork!

I used to watch Chopped! but my memory for specialty cooking terms is very poor, so the descriptions went by me ... what's a remoulade, again? Or a veloute? I've watched "Guy's Grocery Games" and "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" as well, and he had another one which was filmed on his ranch that I liked, but I can't remember the name.

But with the shows you watch, jeez, no wonder you get hungry! (There's a reason I don't watch baking shows, HA HA!)

Chicken and rice ... sounds delish. Now ** I'm ** getting hungry!

I'm glad you're diggin the chair, Brenda.




It's been 24/7 rain and high 30's to low 40's the last two days. Supposed to be sunny and in the 50's tomorrow.

Hoping that's true, because I got a flat on one of my 70,000 mile tires that only have about 4,000 miles on them on the way home from my friend's Sunday night. Something hit the car on the expressway. I heard it wind up and felt a thud on my car when it happened, but it was too dark to see anything. Car seemed to ride just fine for about a mile but then I knew a tire was flat. Drove it home on the rim because I was close and I've had a little experience doing that in my youth.

I've got a full size spare ready to go. Pretty old though, so I'll have to get the other rim redone. I'm thinking about ordering a new tire online and doing it myself. Assuming the tool costs less than $100 and it's not impossible for me to do myself, it will be a new skill learned and won't cost more than what I'd pay just to have somebody else do it. I can't believe how expensive it is to get a new tire these days.

If I can't do it myself, I know a hole in the wall joint out in Gary that will put a used tire on for around $40.

Fun stuff.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Hi KIKI,

Yeah, I am and that is nice. They will. My shoulders were better Tuesday but the last remaining ache is my right hip and just above it. That hopefully will be gone by the end of the week.

She does mine which is why I never watched her show after seeing her judge.

My thing with Chopped is seeing what weird and wacky ingredients they put into the baskets for the Chefs. A remoulade is a sauce that comes from Louisanna and usually used with seafood or on a po'boy sandwich. A veloute is a very fine thin soup from what I can tell from the shows. You see that one a lot on British cooking shows which I watch on YouTube.

Yeah, those are my favourite Guy shows. I missed the one on his ranch and the one where he took his sons to Italy. The Diners one has been known to make me crave hamburgers after I watch it.

I know. They are my guilty pleasure because I know there are main ingredients that I am allergic too in them and other ingredients like fruit and mint that I will react too. But I can't stop watching them.

It's simple but good. I picked that idea up from watching "Iron Chef Japan". The Chinese chef did it in one episode and I thought I'll give it a try. Works really well.

Finally stopped raining today and was reasonably warm.

Waited for the dry weather because I knew what I was in for and I wasn't wrong. Tires are damn near welded on the car with rust. Took over an hour to do something that would only take about 5 to 10 minutes in ideal conditions.

Next spring I'm going to make a day of it and remove all of my tires one by one so I can brush/grind the rust off and put on some anti-seize lubrication so I don't have to worry about that if another one goes flat on me.

The full size spare isn't in very decent shape with the treads, although it seems to hold the air fine. It was at around 20psi in the trunk after nearly 2 1/2 years and inflated just fine. Better than a donut for sure, but I'm not going to want to drive too long or too far on that before getting it replaced.

Not raining is good.

Geez, you need to look after your tires better or you are going to be posting from a hospital bed as you are heading for an accident.

Maybe you should replace all 4 and get all that work done on them.

Hey SIX, sorry to hear about that flat tire. I had something like that happen to me on the freeway a few years ago; fortunately the weather was good and the car tracked straight when the tire went POP!

Sounds like a struggle getting that tire off the rim! Now, if you only had one of those hydraulic presses that just pop the tire off... Sounds like the hole is in the tread, not the sidewall. I assume you have a tire fix kit?

Agree with BRENDA - with bad weather coming up, you don't want to be driving on a moldy oldy. Good luck with getting the tire fixed. Keep us updated!

Hey KIKI... glad to hear that you found the way to get kitty to take his meds.


I struggle with puppy wuppy when I have to give HER a pill: She has a very talented mouth and can yak something up that I swear to god was already halfway down her throat.

I used to bury the pills in the "pill pockets" until she got wise to them. Then I buried them in butter. Then sour cream. The latest iteration is almond butter. Or, I just struggle with her by trying to drop them straight in and holding her mouth closed until she swallows. (And, no, blowing in her nose only worked the first two times.)

The things we do for our pets!!!

Good for you for finding out the trick! Knowing how our pets learn, I hope it works for a long, long time!

FIRES FIRES FIRES

We got significant ashfall from two fire burning in Orange County: the Silverado Fire in Irvine and the Blue Ridge Fire in Chino Hills. I used to work with people who lived in both cities; I wonder how they're faring. I also wonder how the hell they name those fires. There is no "Silverado" in Irvine that I know of, and no "Blue Ridge" in Chino Hills either. Sometimes I think they have a grab-bag of names, and just reach in ...

And by significant, I mean SIGNIFICANT. I had to run errands yesterday so I used the wipers dry to get most of the ash off, and then wet to get the rest off. Using washer fluid, I built up a half-inch strip of "mud" at the far end of the wiper travel. Everywhere I walked, I left footprints in the ash.

Try smoked oysters ... you can tuck pills into them, they have a really strong smell and taste, they're edible in reasonable quantities (ie not a portion of their regular food, but as a treat) ... and they're a great source of zinc!

If the tire was salvageable at some point, there's no prayer of fixing it now after I drove home 2 1/2 miles on the rim. It was a melted and smokey, stinking mess by the time I got her home on it.

There were not one, but two very sizable rips on the sidewall though, which seemed like actual tears like a knife cut them. May or may not have been caused by the drive. Something definitely punctured it hard core. I think it was just a matter of wrong place wrong time and somebody else on the road either lost something on their car or flung it up into my tire. Those tires should have lasted another 10 years with how little I drive.

Yeah. Going to be calling around to get quotes on replacements tomorrow and decide whether or not I want to order a tire and tools online and try fixing it myself or just have a shop do one. This thing is slightly better than running on a donut. I'm good on city streets right now and anything 40mph or under for my normal grocery shopping and home improvement runs, but if I'm going to be helping out my friend at all and getting on the expressway, that's not the place you want to be without a cellphone and no spare tire in the dead of winter. Other than helping my friend out, the only expressway driving I see during the winter is seeing family for Chrismas, but my brother would be there with his cell phone if anything happened. I should have a reasonable solution in place by then though.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

You're welcome Kiki. I find that if I can do things in pieces I can get it done faster and I have more motivation to do it. I keep thinking just one more piece and its done. Whatever the it is. That's how I handled doing all that old paper shredding.

Well, jumping ahead of what Im actually prepared to do, I went on a compost, plant, and seed-buying binge.

For the veggie gardens I have cabbage, cauliflower, carrot, beet, onion, lettuce, arugula, spinach, and mizuna seeds.

For the renovated front yard, I have (or will pick up/ be delivered soon) two Dr Hurd mananita trees, a whole bunch of Wayne Roderick beach daisy which are low-growing natives and have lavender-pink aster-like flowers and very similar-looking astericus maritimus known as Mediterranean beach daisy which looks much like our native beach daisy but bright gold. (I picked it out at the nursery because with all of the other flowers there, the bees were really homing in on it.). Also a Mattole select Epilobium which is a low-growing bright silver-leafed groundcover with bright red fall-blooming trumpet-shaped flowers. A salvia greggii (autumn sage, Texas native) with pale pink/rose-pink bicolor flowers. Purple fountain grass. A spring-blooming pink-colored native currant bush. A "seaside" California buckwheat with white puffball flowers in late summer/early fall, when nothing else is blooming. A few succulents for dear daughter because she likes them! Everything except the grasses are pollinator, hummingbird, or bird-friendly.

I weeded out a shady area last week where I can "stage" the plants before planting so they won't get blasted by the sun.

Meanwhile tomorrow will be outfitted with a portable monitor just in time for the next hot spell, so I'm sure there will be something to look at! So altho there will be a lot of digging, leveling, and raking to do, I have to wait a day for the adhesive to set before I can get all sweaty and dirty and need a shower.


Sent a reminder email to hubby's retirement board, had a lot of password-changing to do because one website was compromised, and I had a bunch of casual logins with the same password, and a reminder to our lawwyer. Fun times!

But looking forward to the day when I can dust my hands and say "done!". Until the next big projects

Whoever said that native gardening is "less work" than a lawn.... lied.


But I have a plan for after all of this planting, that with selective watering, mulching and a little spraying, the work will be reduced to watering and pruning and a little weeding. I expect to see a garden-ful of bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, lizards (because I make little "lizard houses" for them out of chunks of broken concrete) and birds.

The neighbors have already noticed that even with the pollinator=friendly plants in the other part of the yard that I always have butterflies flitting about. What they don't see (because they aren't casual birders. like me) is that a lot of migrating birds come stopping by for a drink or a bite to eat, like "butterbutts" (yellow warblers), Anna's hummingbirds, orioles, towhees, owls, falcons, hawks etc besides the usual crows, ravens, mockingbirds, scrub jays, phoebes, and English sparrows.

China, Xi is on the ballot.

A vote for Biden is a vote for China.

There is a stale debate in Washington over whether President Xi Jinping wants Trump or Biden to win November’s presidential elections, and might he tilt everything from trade decisions to intelligence operations to extract his preferred outcome.

China’s Xi casts his vote in U.S. elections. (Hint: it’s not for Trump or Biden)

The reality is that President Xi has already decided who he prefers to be the victor in our 2020 elections – and that would be China.

We’re in the systemic struggle of our age, and the U.S. democratic system is facing one of the great stress tests of its history without any certainty about the outcome. The situation is bound to get messier through the elections and, perhaps, far beyond.

The United States won its global role on the attractiveness of its values and the effectiveness of its institutions, charms that were tarnished even before the country’s worst-in-class performance in the face of coronavirus. Deaths this week in the U.S. hit a world record 233,437 while China is at 4,634, leaving allies around the world bewildered about their favorite superpower. www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

Chinese leaders are telling their global partners this confirms further that the United States is a declining leader with a faltering model. Beijing underscores the value of their brand of leadership, which focuses more on being at the center of global influence that on being atop the heap.

China remains busy, seizing opportunities wherever it senses America has left behind a global leadership vacuum worth filling. In the face of COVID-19, it has demonstrated a remarkable ability to multi-task. The evidence of that would fill volumes.

Chinese military leaders have said they’d like to make Taiwan their own by the time of the Chinese Communist Party’s 100th anniversary in July of next year. https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/05/08/us-taiwan-china-relations-stop-pa
ndering-coronavirus
/

It will take a far more focused and consistent Washington, acting with greater cohesion alongside its global allies, to deter any such birthday aspirations.

/

The coronavirus pandemic has left governments in disarray and made planning even weeks ahead difficult. In Beijing this week, however, China's leaders met to set specific policy for much of the coming decade. Key goals that have been previewed in state media include a pivot away from GDP growth at all costs, cutting carbon emissions and achieving self-sufficiency in technology and science, amid increasing pressure from the United States on that front.

This kind of long-term planning is in contrast to the often flip-flopping nature of democracies, where promises and plans set in place by one government are vulnerable to being undone by the next -- a point often highlighted in Chinese state media to defend the legitimacy of Beijing's authoritarian system.

Few American presidents have put this into starker relief than Donald Trump, who upon taking office scrapped a major trade deal, withdrew the US from the Paris climate accord, and set about dismantling the Iran nuclear agreement, essentially reversing all the long-term policy established by the Obama administration.

I'm hoping that after reducing my landscaping to hardscape, some mulch and some bare dirt areas, and large and critter/ bird/ pollinator friendly shrubs and trees it'll provide good walking and some recreation areas, cool my lot, and be low maintenance ... as well as being a respite for natives and honey bees.

Believe it or not, our fair city has landscaping ordinances that require 85% vegetation, and I'm not sure if the dripline under a tree counts. So gonna try widely separated groundcover.

But I DO have an island oak planted, and an going to add a couple of manzanita trees.

Got the garage super clean, threw away some bad wood, moved the tool bench back to its new home after everything was sealed. Only annoyance now is the 12ft ladder needing to sit on the floor until I rearrange stuff and put the posts in to hold both of the ladders. That can wait till spring now since I have enough room to park two cars in there now.

Cleared out the gutters, which desperately needed it despite half the leaves still being in the trees. I was going to mow the lawn but after blowing stuff away from the house realized the time would be better spent just blowing it all to the curb for Monday morning pickup, which is what I did instead.


Tried working on the snowblower tire, but that's a shitshow. I'll leave that for another day. Nice warm week coming up starting Tuesday.

Is that with or without hardscape? - because people like spacious walkways, patios, decks, porches, etc and I've never heard of significant limitations on those. I suspect if you completely paved over your lot with concrete there would be some generic prohibition, but otherwise you'd be safe making things easier by building a patio or such. I know I intend to 'pave' the lower 40 with pavers, with very wide (8') native shrub-planted borders along the alley and the fenceline. IDK about your city, but everything I've ever read basically in general counts a 'planted area' as a view from above, so a tree canopy counts.

Despite the fact it was near freezing outside, I got the bug late in the day to do something about that ladder.

Although it probably won't be the final resting place, it's off the floor now. I found two heavy duty shelf brackets I didn't know I still had. In a perfect world, I would have mounted them to studs on the back wall to hang both the 12ft and 7ft ladders, but that would require me removing about 7 more feet of various tools I'd put up on the wall with no real place for me to put them until I fix the shed.

I mounted them fairly high up on a ceiling joist. The top part of the ladder isn't very wide and is on the right side by the service door, with the bottom part of the ladder being around 38" on the left side. 3/4 of the ladder is high enough that I'd never hit my head on it, but I will have to be careful if I walk around the front of my car when I get out since I could hit it. It wouldn't fall, but it would be annoying... At least the feet are rubber so I wouldn't gouge my forehead on a hard metal corner. There's so much room in there now though I can park deep enough to easily walk around the back.

I even engineered it to be easy to mount and unmount. I knew this would require me to be able to put the top part up first, and if I did that as-is I would risk damaging the ladder on the hard edges of the steel mounts. I found some old pipe insulation, cut it to size, then wrapped it tight with twine and tied it up.

I thought I'd have to take out my milk carton to stand on, but nope. :) I can just lift the top of the ladder on the right mount after the third rung, then easily put the bottom of the ladder on the left mount straight from the ground.

I love it when a plan comes together.

In the front, the only useful hardscape would be walkways. Patios, porches, decks etc are too much money, and wouldn't get much use ... who wants to have lunch on a frontyard deck? No privacy.

I will look into the dripline thing, but as it stands I'm not planning on putting much under the trees anyway.

My lazy-ish day was yesterday. I went out bright and early to pick up plants from a nursery that sells natives and walked the dog, but anything else I was planning on doing got derailed bc hubby got a bee in his bonnet about what we were paying for Spectrum cable service, so I helped him (in a minor way) getting Amazon Prime movies going, and then got stuck watching a movie I didn't really care to in order to "test it out". So ...phffft! There went the rest of the day!

Today was a LITTLE better, tho. Dear daughter and I blitzed the house tidying, dusting, sweeping, and vacuuming ... everything was VERY dusty... so now the house feels livable again!

Tomorrow the weather will cool off again, so more outdoor work. So much to do, I think I'll start with picking up the spoiled avocados and feijoa so that we can start picking them up every day after that and have a reasonably good chance of getting good ones. Also... start leveling the front yard, I guess, now that the weeds and grass are gone. I'll try not to get the monitor too sweaty bc I don't want it to come off too early ... it's supposed to be on until Friday. We'll see what happens. Also, dear daughter and I need to sort the mail ... I'm trying to train her how to do that for herself and (potentially) for us, if we get too addled.

I always overschedule every day, and rarely accomplish everything I planned. But off to bed for me; we have a busy day ahead of us.
