Seriously, I have never seen black walnuts. Just regular ones in pkts on the supermarket shelf!
There is a green outer layer before you get to the shell. They look about the same size as the ones from my aunt's tree in Denmark.

I have one son. Son #1's wife's cousin has had three open heart surgeries. Her doctor wants her to get out and walk every day. So,.... Since he walks Teddy every morning, he will be stopping by Denise's house first thing in the morning and take her walking with him and the dog. So tonight he ordered a dog collar in pink with her name in rhinestones on it. She does have a good sense of humor. I just hope she hasn't lost it when she sees the collar.

Good evening/morning everyone

I have had a busy day!

Been at work this morning and then this afternoon I have been doing some washing and some ironing...then I cut Steve's hair when he got home from work

Now relaxing with a hot cup of tea and some biscuits

I have the office to myself today and hopefully get an hour with Roe in. She is a great distraction. Radio tuned to my station, windows open for cool air. I'm all set.

Up rather earlier than I would like after an evening shift. I'll try to pull myself together and get going to a yoga class today.

Just getting over a very sore back. This is the third day and it is finally feeling a little better.I could barely walk yesterday. My DH got a double load of fire wood delivered the other day and I was helping him load it into a wheel barrel and take it around back to his work shop. I asked him if this wood would last him all winter and he said no that he would have to get more, I told him he would have to get some one else to help him the next time.

Well, since it's "Kaboom Friday" as Glenn puts it, I'm finishing up cleaning the bathrooms, kitchen and utility room and have the first of three loads of laundry in the washer. It's overcast but I'm still going to hang our sheets out on the line. I'm stubborn that way.

He started calling Friday "Kaboom Friday" because that's some of the line of products I use in the bathrooms. It's silly but it stuck and Friday will forever more be called that I suppose.

The cleaning should be done in about 30 more minutes and then I can devote the remainder of my morning to baking cookies. Yeah!

Nothing like a clean house that smells of something baking! Doesn't get much better than that.
