Dana that's wonderful.
I am hardly surprised you are an inspiration to them.

I had a hot school dinner on Friday.
Sat between Tiger and Tennant (as agreed). There were only two other spaces on the table by the time I arrived and then a bit of a scrum as to who got them. 5-7 year olds give their affection easily though :)

Miss N has a hot school meal every Wednesday (roast day) so I'm not the first adult to sit down and eat with them.
But I was treated as a comic turn by most of Key Stage One!
"What are you doing? Is that your dinner? Are you eating? Why are you here?" etc etc.

I'm preparing Tiger for School Christmas Dinner on 7 December.
Getting him used to eating next to me, so he doesn't think it's odd when I'm there on the BIG DAY.
So in fact it isn't a BIG DAY. Just Tiger & Mrs O having hot dinner together.
He asked his Mum if he could have it, so it's come from him. But as he still has some food issues Tiger-Mum and I are in contact about it.

The minimum upload for the payment system is 10.00.
So I will have one next week as well.
I'll just have to tell them not to pile my plate so high - I usually just have a bagel for lunch. Four fishfingers, a pile of jacket wedges and half a tin of beans meant I was yawning all afternoon. They'd already loaded my plate before I had a chance to tell them.

Still, if you've got to moan I can think of far worse things than having too much food.

In my area (southern NE) the Frazier Fir has become very popular. It runs in cycles, Blue Spruce and Scotch Pine sold well years ago, then the firs. The concolor fir (White Fir) is also popular now, hold needles well and lasts a long time. (45 years farming Christmas trees).

Anyway, the locals usually know where they are, but it's the tourists they usually get. You just have to be wary. Kinda like with crocs and not swimming in their water holes.

Do they poo on you or eat you up?

Then drag you back to their Lairs ,
spin you in a web from their butts ,
then NOM NOM NOMMM !!!!

A shocking drop bear attack not far from me.


I'm happy today because my yard is still secure and I had no visitors last night....aaaannnnddd.....the dogs managed to control their bladders and poop shoots whilst locked in the shed.

I also managed to get my whipper snipper working, so mowing and whipper snippering today.

Aliantha 11-26-2011 05:59 PM

Wow, it's so unusual for them to drop during the day!

footfootfoot 11-27-2011 10:07 PM

They are like the tree octopusses in the Pacific NW


Sundae 11-28-2011 02:42 PM

Hot dinner again today.
I meant to space them out a bit more, but I am full of cold and just counldn't be arsed to make the small effort to defrost a bagel and grab some cheese this morning.

Anyway I'd checked the menu. Sausages and potato waffles and beans didn't sound too bad. I might upload more credit on payday. Sat with Tennant and Tiger, both moved to sit with me as they were already on packed tables. The table was hen full, but we were still joined by H (who is in my reading and handwriting group) and A (who is just a bit needy, bless her). She created her own space by simply depositing her lunch bag and squeezing in. Good Girl! 15 years from now she'll be in the front row at concerts!

Children at that age do idolise their teachers. It's not me, it's them.
But no matter how shallow it is, it is lovely to be popular!

Not true at all. Children are very good at figuring out who is innately good and who is not. They like you for a reason. :)

Aliantha 11-28-2011 08:14 PM

It's my step mum's birthday on the weekend, and I'd picked out a small bucket grill to give her as a gift from us so she can do a small bbq at the pergola the boys and dad built near the dam. Anyway, back to the gift.

It was at the hardware store where we went today to get the stuff to fix the fence, and I was planning on getting it while we were there, and lo and behold, it was on special for half price!

Bargain. At least one good thing has happened today. Let's hope we can get this job with the fence done with minimal fuss and the stupid dog can stay inside too. :)

I LOVE it! once I know what the puzzle is suppose to look like and know each piece of the puzzle? look out! I so got this!

Sarge got my present!
It's a very vain one - I sent a personalised calendar. A whole year of Sundaes.
It just took so long to arrive I feared it was lost.

Don't fret if you sent something that isn't in the photo - his mail service does seem to take an inordinate amount of time!

ETA - the haul below is from a collection of Dwellars, not just me! Although you can probably recognise my phiz in there.

And there must be some mistake because the invoice says that Amazon only charged me $23 for the case of 14 large boxes. That's like 60% off the store price.

Maybe I should place another order real quick?

Clodfobble 12-13-2011 05:58 PM

Looks like it's the right price.

You save $59.17 (72%)
And, you could save another 15% if you sign up for "Subscribe & Save." (Which is a fantastic deal, because you can cancel at any time, or skip an order, or toss in an extra order... I love Subscribe & Save.)

glatt 12-13-2011 07:22 PM

We do the subscribe and save, and they did take another couple bucks off, but I wasn't sure what that was, so I didn't mention it.

The last case we bought in the early Fall was a lot more expensive, so I think I'm going to get another two cases. I'll give one to the local food pantry and keep the other for myself. That will take me until June or so with the case I just got. It's an outstanding price. They have to be losing money on this.

Pete Zicato 12-13-2011 08:28 PM

Glatt,

As an alternative, you may want to check out the cereal selection at Aldi's. Their stuff is really good and is a lot cheaper than the regular grocery store.

zippyt 12-13-2011 08:46 PM

Trust me on this , They are Still makeing Plenty

Clodfobble 12-13-2011 09:19 PM

Yeah, it's still $1.64 per box, for nothing but flour, sugar, and salt.

Edit: Actually, never mind. I just followed her link and the price is now back up to $75. The savings are no more. The gravy train is over.

Nirvana 12-14-2011 10:28 AM

Wheaties? Ew JMO I like oatmeal.


I wanted a heifer that was for sale in an online auction. Yesterday we were the closing high bidder YAY! :)

glatt 12-14-2011 10:34 AM

Congratulations! Excuse my ignorance, but what does a heifer do for you? Is it just another animal for the herd, or are you going to breed it or something? (I don't even know whether to call it a he or a she.)

Nirvana 12-14-2011 11:33 AM

Thanks Glatt! :)
Heifer = Female bovine that has not yet calved.

We bought her to add a pedigreed purebred Maine Anjou to our herd. We have been breeding strictly for 4 H calves but want to breed purebreds. This female could produce either kind of show cattle. [breeding / 4-H] She is also a viable donor female which means we can flush her and sell embryos.

Last year we added a half blood Simmental female. Some breeding cattle that are of the right conformation and pedigree can be sold for as much as $100,000 If someone paid us that for an animal we would probably faint but we want to try to work our way into the upper echelon of breeding cattle. :)

HungLikeJesus 12-14-2011 11:44 AM

Are these bred for meat or pets?

glatt 12-14-2011 11:45 AM

A picture of you new Heifer would be cool. Is she pretty?

I feel a little silly posting this, but I have more Wheaties! I ordered two more cases just before they raised the price to $75, and they just got here. I have enough cereal to last until August!

Won't the cereal go bad or become bland? Looking at the picture makes me want to try Wheaties. :lol: You like it that much?

Wheaties is made from booger glue and recycled Chinese newspaper. It can't go bad.

Oh FSM that's me too. my basement is FULL of cereal. (We store food-in waiting-down there, we call it the pantry, but it's really just shelves in the basement....)

Weetabix is our main brand name product, though...... but I have everything.

You could live on cereal forever.....

Lol. Our Kid's family goes through so much cereal it's mental. But as you say: sporty kids go to inbetween meal. Slightly less so now Meeliabobs is all grown-up and far too sophisticated to be throwing herself about on a gymnastics mat, but still. Soph's into the cheerleading thing in a fairly big way, amongst other activities.

The expiration date is a year from now, and I've had expired Wheaties before and didn't notice a taste or texture difference. It would probably still taste fine two years from now. The inner plastic bag is sealed and is air tight, so humidity, etc. won't impact it at all.

Trilby 12-17-2011 10:05 AM

I just wrote a cute little toy-car kind of poem and posted it in the Creative thread.

i like it.

I've only written three or so poems I've liked.

i like this one.

If you hate it - feel free to say so. I like it so much i like it for ITSELF. ;)

I posted this here bc no one ever looks in Creative unless it's about boobs or car parts of vaginas, so yeah, I'm drumming up interest here.

so what?

sue me.
