Baby it’s cold…

Outside and inside….the furnace went out last Saturday and we have had the repair guys here twice. They are coming back in the morning hopefully with the right part to fix it. So Mollie and me have been sitting by the heater staying warm.

Ohiophotogrl leaves these on while she is here but when she leaves she turns them off. Space heaters left unattended can cause a fire and we don’t want that.

We did wake up to ice everywhere outside this morning

It’s pretty when your looking thru the sliding glass doors. So thankful that our power didn’t go out. What’s the weather like where you live?

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

November 1st

Last night was trick or treat here I the 937. I couldn’t decide what to wear so I did costume changes.

Ok maybe more than a few but a Tator has to have options ya know! Hope you all had a safe and fun night last night. We had about 25 trick or treaters. Rain dampened the night but Ohiophotogrl has fun running around to all the neighbors to see what kind of candy they had….I’m not sure she will ever grow up. I think I’m ok with that!

Here is to a great November!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Applesauce

With fall being just a day or two away Ohiophotogrl thought we should make some homemade applesauce. It’s apple season hear in the 937 so we went out to Peifers Orchard for some local grown apples. This batch will be made with just apples, water and lemon juice to start. Then we will add some spices like cinnamon:0)

First thing we To is peel and core the apples

With the Apple peeler in the top photo it cores the Apple at the same time it’s peeling so it makes fast work out of getting the apples ready. Then we throw them in the pan with the water and lemon juice….

But a lid on it and wait for it to get all tender so we can squish it all up for our applesauce.

Then we will can it and it will look like this

Wonder what we’re gonna do next!

12 miles from home

Ohiophotogrl and I went on a little excursion this morning. We went to a little town close to our home called Yellow Springs. The have a field of sunflowers every year about this time. They are beautiful. We forgot to take a photo of us but here are a few from the field…

There were lots of bees which was great to see

There were even a few that haven’t bloomed yet.

The morning was a perfect time to go! Hope you all have a great rest of the week!

Now that funny

So my friend Dallas sent home a calendar for me. With this being July he thought I would find this funny and I do!

The bottom of the photo says Better….or worse. Now you know how I get my eyes checked lol

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Where Have I Been

Sorry for disappearing on you. Ohiophotogrl and I have had some crazy times. So much so that I’ve been taking the photos and not being in them. I told her it was crazy but she insisted that I do a blog post about her crazy few weeks. First off we went to the Cincinnati Scotty Friends Convention. She dressed for every event….

She made everyone laugh and have a good time! We spent a week with some good friends! Then we got home and cleaned out the garage! We can fit a car in there now.

Then as we were cleaning the garage we heard a very loud crashing sound from the back yard

Huge tree limb fell! Crazy….Ohiophotogrl was just on her way outback when it happened. Thank God everyone was ok because we had to call someone to come get it out of the yard it was so big.

But now we are back to getting some routine in our lives. Let’s hope that happens soon! Take care and I’ll be back soon!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Memorial Day

Ohiophotogrl and I would like to take a moment and thank all the the Soldiers who sacrificed their life’s so we could be free. We would also like to thank those serving for their service. Lastly we would like to thank the family’s that sacrifice time away from their loved ones so that we can have the rights that we have!

Please take a moment and thank those who paved the way for our rights.

Much Love,

Mr P & Ohiophotogrl
