Dinking around, the plan is to go out and rip up the frost-killed dead plants when it warms up a bit more. Also need to empty and put the little pond to bed for the winter.

No frost killed plants here yet. What's up with that? But, I will soon have to cut back my day lilies and cone flowers (I think that's what I'm supposed to do.)

And then my not so favourite getting ready for winter. Gotta tip the patio table on its side and arrange the chairs and then cover everything with a large, blue tarp. Not a one woman project.

I'm about to start making that slow roasted leg of lamb. I got the 'taters.

I'm surprised, no frost for you yet, TL? I did find some bonus green tomatoes and peppers on the dead vines. The bonus cukes were done for.

I am making lamb stock for the gravy for tonight's supper. I'm working on income tax returns for a client, and waiting for Stirling to get back from having an MRI.

He had a CT scan of his head a couple of weeks ago for scalp numbness. The technician saw a small spot (not related to the numbness) that can't be properly analyzed from a CT scan, so suggested an MRI. The doctor said she usually follows the technicians' suggestions, so she gave him the referral. She said it's most likely just some small, benign mass.

Of course I'm worried. We won't know anything for at least a few days.

Chin up, TL. We'll be thinking of you.
