Compared to a week ago, we are very much more settled in, with the bottom of the wash basket almost in sight. The plumbers holes are history, and the veggies are growing apace. We have had both hard rain, and drizzle, and stayed snug and warm in our house. So I feel ready to face the winter.
I made Dave a 'barley' in place of a 'wheatie' to put in the microwave and keep his toes warm, but the lack of comment suggests I will have to try harder to find some cracked wheat. We had to empty all of ours out before we came over, so as not to contaminate the local crops. I am sure ours had been microwaved so often it was as sterile as possible, but I need to find something to keep Dave's toes warm while he is sitting still and working for long periods of time.
