Today will be cloudy with a 30% chance of showers this morning. The high will be 8C(46F).
Tonight will start cloudy but becoming partly cloudy late this evening. The overnight low will be -4C(24F).
A fairly quiet day on the prairie. The Queen was really impressed with the fix to the toilet. She says it's like new.
I had to fix my desk lamp holder again yesterday as the repairs to the plastic one let go. This one will outlast me. I made it from a 1/2 inch cast flange and a short peice of 1/2 inch steel pipe with a piece of nylon tubing filling the gap between the lamp base and the 1/2 inch pipe. I'm sure I could lift the desk with it. I'll get a photo when I clean off my desk a bit and post it later. While I'm in the photo mood I'll also show the details of the magnetic toothbrush, razor and shaving brush holders. My brain may be broken but the ideas just keep popping up.I guess the creative ideas are a necessity or I'll be in a leash and harness attached to the kitchen sink. :)
So far most of the materials used to make the projects have come from my stockpile of I can't throw that away stuff because I might need it someday I have hidden away from the Queen who refers to it as junk.
The Queen was home last night and roasted a chicken which was accompanied by stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravey and a salad. I can't let her quit work as in no time I'll won't fit through the doors.

Hi, Tony! I salvaged the magnets off a couple of hard drives: those things are strong!

Happy Halloween!

Good grief! You folks get chilly up there, don't you?

We're only about 58F/14C and Hubby has the furnace cranked up so high, I feel like I'm about to pass out. It's the time of year when we start up our annual 6 month gig of playing "Dueling Thermostats"! (Hum the banjo music from 'Deliverance' here) We do it to a lesser degree with the A/C in the summer.

I believe in dressing for the weather outside. Hubby does the opposite. Wears long pants, socks, shoes, etc in the summer months and complains about being hot; then wants to wear T shirts, no socks, etc. in the winter and complains about being cold.

Hope your Sunday is a good one.

Oh I like that little house on the Prairie photo. Nice. Hi Tony, hi MUSH. Looks like its turning into a nice sunny fall day after the heavy fog we had this morning.

Good to see Tony you are firing up those brain cells and coming up with all kinds of great projects to work on. As long as you keep walking Abby, those great meals the Queen cooks will not affect your weight. Just enjoy!!!!

Have a great day dear ones. Hey at least we were not the first ones to see snow this time...

Thanks for the sunset. That is a beautiful photo and could be enlarged and used as a wall hanging.
