Another day off

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Fri Sep 29, 2006 6:22 am

It's time for another day off. I have several things to do. First is to finish that zucchini jam and see how it turns out. By morning I should be able to tell how the ginger pear jelly did. The small jar was solid but the full jars were still a bit soft. DR put them in the refrigerator. The zucchini jam recipe is a bit complicated but I thought I should try the recipe before I began fiddling with it.I do want to reduce the sugar and maybe try to use pectin instead of cooking it down to the thickness I like. We shall see.
It wasn't so busy this week, except on Monday. Monday's are always busier. Prescott's new library opened this week so we don't have all their books now. Saturday there will be an open house at our library so people can look at plans for our new library and have some imput with the architects. Of course, maybe it won't be so busy anyway because Prescott is having their grand reopening the same day.
I did some watering today but do need to do some things outside tomorrow if it doesn't get too hot. It is supposed to be 91F. Wannabe said it will be in the 30's tonight. Maybe that means frost. I thought we might have an early frost because it's been cool, but it warmed up again. My rule of thumb is that September is down to 90's, October is down to 80's and November is down to 70's. December is down to 50's and January is a mixture of 40's and 50's before it begins warming up again with February and March being in the 60's and April and May in 70's and 80's again. Those are daytime temps. The night time temps can go down into the 20's during Jan and Feb and then go up until the last average frost date in late April. They say this will be a warmer than normal winter and a drier than normal winter so I can only hazard a guess at what it will be. It was 56F this morning. I know that for a fact but tomorrow?
I had my lab work done on Tuesday. Today the doctor called. The thyroid level was high so he cut out the replacement hormone. Now, it is lower than normal. He says wait another month and go have it checked again. Then, depending on whether it has stablizied or is still going down, he will decide what to do. I wish he had to pay for the lab tests he blithely says go and have done. Oh, well! I need to e-mail or call Andy and ask him what he thinks. He will have to discuss it with his medical person and call me back. He says his patients don't have too many thyroid problems. He's a pediatrician. So, I guess it's time for bed. Chance says it is.

I like your rule of thumb Dooley. If only it were that predictable. I think we are in for a VERY cold winter here in Sweden as we had a great summer. Sweden had 4 months of snow last Dec - Mar.

It didn't freeze or frost here last night. We will start in a warming trend tomorrow so probably not a frost for a week or 10 days.
