Sometimes when we have these long time rain no let up sessions I feel like I need a pair.

My pond is in the back corner of the yard which is higher than the patio and grass area. Although I had a concrete curb poured around both and filled it in with black rock, it still will roll water down when it overflows.

ProfCrash and pooh I hope you both feel better soon.

Charlie I have my fingers crossed and just know something will turn up for you.

Hot Chocolate. It's freezing here and it's the first day of summer! Not that I want to get too hot, but a nice sunny 22 would be lovely. Don't expect to have to put on a jumper at this time of the year.

Just spent a couple of days babysitting my 2 and 4 year old granddaughters, now I know why we are supposed to have kids when we are young!

Well we have something in common. It's freezing here too! Only it's the first day of Winter .

Warm Rooibos in my cup.

The last time I baby sat, I realized why so many animals eat their young...

11° here... We took a 5km walk and damn near froze to death. I thought walking uphill was supposed to make you sweat. But we came home to hot tea... Keemun for me, and a Japanese Gyokuro for my wife. I'm having another mug of Keemun right now. I estimate this will be a 4-bathroom-trips night.

Wait... first day of winter? Umm that does not happen till the earth is a bit further in its orbit. Why would UK celebrate that before the physical event happens?

That all depends on how you define winter. There's the December/January/February definition for the Northern Hemisphere. Others like to count it from the solstice. Some count it as centred on the solstice.

Coke Zero #3 in my cup.

I count today as the first day of winter, partly because it's 1st December, and partly because this morning we've had our first snow shower (no danger of it settling yet though).

Not sure why we do that, but the weather forecaster this morning said it was the official 1st day of Winter today. And as we all know, the weather forecaster is never wrong .

Black, black coffee.

Rooibos for me. Lucas is working on abottle after having some pears. Tomorrow he gets banana for the first time. The Earth's Best baby food doesn't taste bad. But I choose a food that is a bit more expensive that is only pear and water, sweet potato and water. Next week I'll start making his food at home but we still need the jars for day care.

Mine loved jars of plain carrot purée or apple purée

Back home since yesterday. I still am a wreck, but enjoyed my journey immensely. Sorting the photo's now and working on my blog. Staying inside as the temperature in Egypt was 34 degrees and here about zero.

In my cup: Rooibos vanilla spice, hot
On the photo: the Seti I temple in Abydos, Egypt

Welcome back J. Glad to see you home safe and sound, and that you enjoyed it so much. I look forward to more pics and details. Keep warm.

More black coffee. And maybe a choccy biscuit?

Glad you're back safe and sound, desertblues. An amazing area of the world, but a scary place to be visiting right now.

Today is a kickback day. Watch some curling, do some knitting, and start a second batch of bacon. I'm going to teach a mini-class next Saturday on how to dry-cure bacon, and need to get batches spaced out so that I can demonstrate the different stages of the process.

In my cup: fresh squeezed orange juice. (It's the very beginning of the California navel orange season, and the Valencia season is over, so the result is a bit thin and tart, but still good.) Next up, some Anniversary Breakfast Blend.
