   BirdsNest posted on Health & Diet  Yesterday I took a hard fall. My hands were full. I was carrying clean chicken waterers. My foot caught the edge of a cage and boom! down I went. Hard on both elbows and right shoulder. Right foot was scraped on the cage that caught me. Did not break the waterers. First thought. Then I checked myself out. No bruises. Felt ok. Well this morning I found a small bruise on my leg and my right shoulder feels achy. Very lucky. Could have been worse.

   Daisymay  Oh my gosh Bird! You certainly were lucky. The shoulder could have been disaster if you landed wrong on it. I fell out of the back seat of our SUV, backwards, and landed on my shoulder. Took a year before I could really move it freely without pain. I won't go into how that happened! Happy you're doing well!

   BirdsNest  Thanks, Daisymay. The soreness in the shoulder has been aggravated by weed pulling. No big deal.

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  Now that we have had nine inches rain in 4 days maybe

   BirdsNest  Ok. Yesterday I cleaned weeds out of 3 raised beds. Bed #4 will need more than just weeds pulled. Needs to be replaced. So maybe next month I can buy the lumber to do that. Beds #5&6 have pepper plants and zinnias in bloom. Would have pulled the zinnias but thete are still pollinators buzzing and fluttering around them so they stayed. The last bed had jalapenos growing so I weeded and left the peppers awhile longer. I am sick of looking at weeds. Hagar is probably as disgusted with it as I am.

   MeiDei  Disgusted or not, he understands Bird. Now you have me craving jalapenos - good thing I'll be off to the store soon.

   BirdsNest posted on Recipes  If anyone would like any of these bread machine recipes I will post them.
Yogurt Corn Bread
Lemony Granola Bread
Olive Bread
Applesauce Bread
Honey Banana Whole Wheat Bread....great with peanut butter
Anadama Oatmeal Bread
All of these I have made and love. Right now I am baking a loaf of Brioche(rich white bread ) for friends to take camping today.
Later I want to make Rye Anise Bread.
If you have any tried and loved bread machine recipes, please share.

   BirdsNest  The Brioche bread was beautiful. It was so tall I had to use 2 plastic bags instead of a ziplock. Also made the Rye-Anise for myself. It is quite good. I always slice off a heel and enjoy it with butter. I will likely eat one more slice and pass it on to a friend.

   BirdsNest posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  Yesterday while looking for the courthouse in the lower county( so I could pay for my traffic ticket ). I took a turn and drove past a terrapin. In the middle of the road. I turned around and stopped and took it into a nearby field. Hopefully he continued on a less travelled path. I haven't seen one in years. I never did find the courthouse. I mailed in a money order. Lived here about 25 years and have never needed to go there.

   MeiDei  Up here we call them turtles - you made me search "terrapin" - now I'm as smart as you (laughing )!

   StormCnter  I have stopped to rescue many over the years. We have to be careful down here, though, to pick them up far enough back on the shell that they can't bite. The old saying is that a snapping turtle will hold on til it thunders.

   MeiDei  We haven't seen a snapper here in many years, that goes along w/frogs, ground hogs, skunk, bats, bees and a variety of birds ... all rarely seen & sadly missed. I don't know if it's coyote or the huge hawks that are responsible, a virus or a combination of all three but every so many years we've lost wildlife of one sort or another - so I applaud you who have taken the time, and spent the effort, to save even one animal in potential danger ... Bravo!

   BirdsNest posted on Gardening & Landscaping  I was thinking about what would taste good with a chicken tender so I put a bit of fig jam on a piece. Good, but not what I wanted. So I thought about hot fig jam and made some Hot Lemon Pepper Fig Jam. Now that is really tasty!! I have made 6 half pints to gift to friends.

   MeiDei  You made me remember a dish I used to make - I called it 'moving day chicken' - baked chicken with all the open condiments in the fridge + strawberry jam mixed together and poured over, baked at 35o for +/-45 mins. My husband liked it so much when we got to his next duty station he went out and bought all I used. So Bird, I call that - cooking w/authority - good for you!

   MeiDei  Big drop in temperature here in NE, just outer bands of wind, no rain, heavy surf w/rip tides for past few days. Trees are swirling in circles, birds are quiet - sky is white.

Cant afford anything else (2 ) anything else won't work.

   Escaped commieny  Have you checked AMAC, all their discounts may help. Unfortunately, I had AARP for life insurance too long to quit, but AMAC came along, and use them for everything else.
Here is there phone deal: investigate,

   BirdsNest posted on Coffee Klatch  Where is everybody????? How can I live vicariously through your active lives if you don't post??

It has been an awful Spring/Summer for me so I have not had much joy to post anywhere. Trying to keep busy but there is a huge void in my life.

   Gram77  We seem to come and go a lot more around here then we used to. I check constantly but sometimes have nothing much to offer. It depends on where I'm at the time. Please keep watching, BirdsNest. Take care. Gram

   MeiDei  You don't want to live my life Bird, it's been nothing but stress since April & today is the first day I could fit into my shoes in 28 days ... wish I could post happy, productive events ... confined to the movie wall and a few others trying to keep I light and fun.

   BirdsNest  I was hoping to boost interest. Yeah, I know others are going through tough times but there was a glimmer of hope someone would post something to make us all smile. I have had a terrible 6 months. Maybe next year......

   MeiDei  A few days b/4 our dog ran away I picked up a 20# bag of dog food - today a volunteer at a rescue farm is coming by to pick up my donation - they have 2 Harlequin Great Danes.
We're hoping our dog will show up once the food is gone - doesn't it always seem to work like that - you get rid of something seemingly unneeded and a week or so later you find yourself running to the store to replace it [smile].
