Rain, Rain, Please Stay
 

Lovely rain fell all day. Then just before it was time for school to let out, the sun made an appearance. How nice that the weather was so accommodating.

I think Max is slowly getting used to his new raincoat. He still doesn't like the rain at all but at least when he's wearing it he'll actually do his business instead of yanking you home. Perhaps by the end of our typically wet winter Max will learn to tolerate his walks in the rain.

The Stuff of Nightmares
 

It's Diwali, we wish out Hindu, Sikh, and Jain readers a good festival.

This weekend is the Islamic New Year - Happy New Year to our Muslim readers.

......

So... have you all seen those pics online of that giant spider in South America. With a 28cm leg span and weighing over 170g. That's the stuff of nightmares.

The bloke who photographed it - and who seemed delighted and excited by its appearance - said he "heard its footsteps before he saw it".

He heard its footsteps...

I'm sorry, but any spider big enough that you can hear its footsteps is not one I'm going to hang around for. I'd have been out of there so damned fast you'd have heard the sonic boom on Mars!!

Flamethrower. Kill it!! Kill it with fire!! I would have burned the whole bloody forest down to get it.

And on that happy note I'll leave you to your reading.

See you next week. Goodnight and may your God/s go with you.

Blown Away
 

Yesterday we had a walk-in greenhouse. It consisted of a metal frame covered in a heavy duty plastic shell, which zipped closed. It was tall enough for me to stand inside. It was a bugger to put up as the plastic was a pretty tight fit.

Today we have a frame. The plastic is gone. It isn't ripped or torn & lying in the garden. Or in next door's garden. Or down the road. No bits of plastic lying around. It's gone. Vanished. Disappeared without a trace.

The gale-force winds we had last night have taken it.

How the hell they managed to do so without any damage to the frame is a mystery. How it managed to vanish without a trace is also a mystery. If you hear any rumours of a UFO being seen in England it'll be our greenhouse, flying along like a Zeppelin!!

....................

E, mate, blimey - don't start apologising because I check a few sites! I wouldn't do it if I didn't enjoy it. I'd check them anyway, looking for new stuff to read. OK - I probably wouldn't check all these fandoms, I'd probably limit my searches to my favourite fandoms, but I'd still poke about looking for things, just in case I found a new fandom to like.

Sorry Ze...
 

I might as well apologize now as Ze will find numerous updates for y'all tomorrow night. I on the other hand only check our usual sites and have once again only found a couple for you to read. So enjoy those and get ready for the loads Ze will send at you Tuesday and Wednesday.

Until than have a splendid evening.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Busy
 

Kind of a busy weekend for us. Saturday we ran a few errands and drove little e to a birthday party/sleepover. The kids both had homework that filled a lot of their time.

Cal and I made a trip to the comic store today. E spent the afternoon visiting with old high school friends. And little e has been working on schoolwork since she got home from her sleepover.

Tonight Cal will continue with homework. He has a science project that's due on Tuesday so I've made sure he didn't wait until the last minute to complete it. That was always my fatal weakness when it came to projects for school and he has a tendency to do the same.

Monday evening he should be able to finish it up and get to bed on time.

Fire Good
 

Not very cold and the rain has stopped, but that fire still feels good. I may have to turn on the heat soon. But holding off until mid to late October is great.

Enjoy those updates and have a splendid Sunday.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Rain
 

Our Friday has been graced with lovely rain. Not a steady downpour but our usual drizzle. I even got to walk in it for a bit with a student. If our rain continues, tonight's sleep should be peaceful.

I'll let you get to reading.

Dinner
 

My favorite meal is by far breakfast, which means tonight's dinner (breakfast for dinner) is a favorite meal as well.

Here is hoping your day, week has been going well. Good News for some of us tomorrow is TGIF.

Enjoy those updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Language Choice
 

One of the things I forgot to mention last week, when I was chatting about searching on AO3 tags... there are a lot of fics that I don't report on because they are not written in English. Obviously, if you're reading our updates, you can read English. But if your first language is a language other than English, or you are fluent in a language other than English, you might like to check out AO3's other languages.

Go here and click on the drop-down for language choice, (there's even one - just one - story in Irish Gaelic), then scroll to the bottom of the page & click search. Bingo. There's your list. (Note - it brings up all stories in that language - not just femslash - you'll have to narrow your search for that.)

See you next week. Goodnight and may your God/s go with you

Yukky Weather
 

Glad I weather proofed Snow's home. The weather these past two days has been dreadful. Talk about a torrential downpour!! Monday was appalling.

Fall is finally here!
 

Still no fire but today E got us ready for one. Wood has been brought in and the area in front of the fireplace is cleared out and waiting for heat.

Unless our weather takes a turn for the frigid we probably won't be starting a fire this week. Temps in the 60s and rain aren't cold enough for the mighty power of our fireplace insert. Soon though...I can feel it in my bones.

Tomorrow Ze will have a ton for you I'm sure. Enjoy the updates!

Another Stellar Day
 

We had a clear weekend during the daylight hours and it was pleasant all around. My beautiful rain will make a full appearance this week, which could make work interesting and the driving commute hellish. Other than that just another week to go by.

Enjoy those updates.

Peace, Health and Happiness.

Counting the days....
 

Fall has finally arrived. Yesterday the morning was warm and foggy. When I left school at lunch time the temperature had dropped and there was a definite bite to the air.

Today we had more of the same along with a little rain. It's not quite cold enough for a fire but I know we're close. Yay!

Tired
 

This week has been long, but they all seem that way now at work. Kinda sucks. Wish weekends were longer. Sadly they are not so I am off to start enjoying what I can.

Happy Weekend to all.

Peace, Health and Happiness.
