Guess it had to happen at some point.........

After five days of rain it was a little cool today in the house, so we had the fire on before lunch:

We still don't have the heating on yet. Molly took advantage of the fire being on and lay down in front of it.

With it being cool and very windy I picked a number of tomatoes and peppers:

I plan on making some tomato sauce with them.

I have to travel back and forth to the city twice on Saturday, as dh was supposed to be getting work done on his work truck.  It is only a couple of months old and it is a big "L," lemon!!!!  It has to go back to the garage again, as a major electrical component in the truck needs to be replaced and of course they didn't have it in stock.  It caused all the windows to open on their own the other day....freaky or what!!!

Not sure if you are all familiar with WAGJAG it's a site where you can purchase items/services at discounts.  I took advantage of a coffee deal, but what a job I had trying to get it.  It turned out this lady had a web only business, and I was under the impression it was a cafe.  As she worked full time through the week, trying to get together for me to pick the coffee up was difficult, so this deal wasn't the best for me.  Have to say though I have had good luck with other deals. 

I purchased a couple of Groupon deals on Saturday as I have had good luck with that site as well.  I have only ever bought one deal off of Living Social and that was a magazine subscription.  Are you a fan of these discount deal sites?

Finally, in answer to your mushroom questions.  I knew it was okay to eat as I looked it up on the Internet and found a picture of the mushroom.  Also I figured it must be fine if the guy was picking them.  Also when we were growing up we used to eat field mushrooms, so are familiar with them. 

I would like to take a mushroom identification course though, as I am sure there are many more varieties that we could eat.

Very sad news just in; Betty from Coronation Street has died, I wonder how they are going to write her out of the series......

Oooh, the fire looks cosy - it has been a cold, blustery spring day here in Melbourne and I am huddling under quilts nursing a cold but your lovely fire has warmed me up! Sorry to hear that Betty from Coronation Street has died although 91 is a great innings!

Hugs, Kaye xoxox

Oh, I have always wanted a fireplace. We too, have been cranking up the heat here in the Midwest. Fall has most certainly set in....seemingly overnight.

I think I'd be right there with Molly in front of the fireplace! Looks wonderful! ~Liz

My house didn't feel too cold yesterday, however, if was damp, so broke down and turned the furnace on for about an hour then off again. Still nice and cosy Sunday a.m. thanks to the grants we used to re-insulate the house a couple of years ago.
I have a gas fireplace in my rec room, not the same as wood burning-- liking the NO cleaning part.

I would love to be sitting there in front of that fire...whether it was cold or not. Just something about a fire.

We have had to have a few fires on already with the winds and dampness; however it is toasty in here now and Homemade soup warms the bones as well.

I wish that we had a fireplace. That looks so cosy!

Molly is smart to sit in front of the fireplace. It is feeling a bit damp and cold lately!
