COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES!

Hi~ Went to the store for a new tablecloth for Thanksgiving dinner. Turned the corner and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw shopping aisles all wrapped in plastic. Clothes, appliances, toys... you name it - all over the store!

All ready to go for Thanksgiving, not for Black Friday!!! Never in my life....

TREE SPIT

This is att the base of a couple of my trees!

It only happens with a couple of our trees.... Strangest thing ever and fun to see when it happens.

I've read somewhere that Tree Spit (stemflow) is really rain water which dissolves stuff from the treebark as it flows down the stem of the tree. This changes the surface tension of the water, so that when it drips down towards the base of the tree, air is introduced due to the turbulence of the water, and foam is formed because of the altered surface tension.

I believe it's not just on trees either! There's rock foam and even river foam - Sudbury River in MA has a lot of suds after a good rain.

Water's Back!

One brand new water pressure tank later.

Was that the original problem? Nope, that one was clear across the other side of the basement. But thankfully the first small pipe burst happened, because that brought attention to the pipes connected to the old tank. They were so badly corroded and clogged the water was literally being sent through a swizzle stick and that too was about to burst. That definitely would have been cute.

Definitely the wrong time of year for THAT to happen. Can anyone say chicken for Thanksgiving? ;)

Thank you for visiting. Hope you came again!

SNOW!!!!

To lets us know what we may expect a couple days before Thanksgiving, there was a nice dusting of snow on the ride home, last night. Too powdery to make things slippery but sure was pretty.

Have to say I was more surprised to see it still there, early this morning.

Dead In The Water

It's incredible how much I depend on the water. After finding a huge wet mess in the basement early this morning, I've had to be quite creative - especially with dinner, waiting for the water.

Brrrrr!

18°F at 5:45 this morning. Now that's cold. Especially after last weekend.....

November, ALrEaDy!

Hi~

Cannot believe it. Been so busy these past weeks you would think I was covering the schedules of two people!

Most consuming has been the yard cleanup. Been at it for a few days. So thrilled to have the extra warm weather this time of year to get more done than usual and been taking as much advantage as I can. Things look good with the old annuals pulled. However, as I was working I looked up and noticed all kinds of leaves and needles overhead that had not yet fallen.... well, until the last few days. Been so windy the yard hardly looks like I've raked it!!!!
"Just keep raking, just keep raking" Have to admit, it's great exercise, although I'd rather tennis.

That photo was taken early, EARLY this morning. Lately, I haven't been able to sleep late and this was the view awaiting me today! Looks like the trees are ablaze.

Saw this great Thanksgiving advice online and thought I'd share with my blog-buds, too!
