RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Back to warm weather, but so far we haven't had to turn the air conditioner back on, just open up the windows and let the breeze through. Czarny's loving it -- he can go in and out at will. When the doors are closed, he has serious issues with being on the side I'm not on, but when they're open, he's happy to be outside most of the day, and is very, very good about coming inside right after sundown. After all, that's when the treats come out. Spousal Unit is smoking a brisket today. Tall Friend's Sister was blown away by Fredericksburg and the Hill Country around us, then she was utterly gobsmacked by Buc-Ee's biggest facility in our county seat, the Gruene Hall dance hall, and some of the oldest hardware and general stores in Texas -- all right in our county. Today, I'm taking her to a nursery that turns all 9000 sf of space into a Christmas display and sales area. It's so huge there's no chance of not social distancing -- not that it's been an issue. Everyone around here has just automatically kept distance between us all -- does take a while for a good habit to form, but it looks like we have the habit down pat. An eight-point buck has been hanging out in our meadow, and occasionally coming up to the house. He's ignoring Czarny and isn't bothered by us two humans being nearby, but we'll still be wary. A smaller buck was sleeping next to the garage the other morning, and even when SU noticed the swimming pool cover and reel was severely out of place and went to check on it, the buck stayed where he was. We wondered if he'd fallen into the pool, fought his way back out, and was laying there exhausted. But we saw no hoof or antler damage to the pool cover, so maybe something else fell in and found its way back out (no corpse in the pool). It's actually raining! Not much, and it probably won't even register, but at least it's getting the schmutz out of the air. Time to clean house a bit. Later, y'all.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

More humidity, less sleep. I'm not firing on all thrusters today. Sigh. Cold front hit this morning, so the high isn't in the 80s anymore, and the lows will be in the 40s. If the humidity drops, I should sleep fine. Short Friend is flying out to see her family this week. Tall Friend's sister flies in tonight to take care of him. We'll take her around to see things while TF is doing his therapies, and feed her authentic Texas grub. If the wind isn't blowing, one day we'll break out the cast iron and cook dinner over the fire pit for her. She'll leave Texas very well fed... Czarny had a bad morning. He wanted out, but the wind and chill kept driving him back inside. He finally gave up about 1030 and is under our covers. I may join him for a short nap before we head over to celebrate TF's birthday. Otherwise, it's a very pretty day. Lots of boats on the lake to watch and the rock drilling just over our fence is taking a Sunday break. I guess a house is about to go up over there. Definitely getting crowded around here, if they are permanent residents. Hope so; I don't care to have more vacation rentals right around us -- they like to make noise, which interferes with wildlife watching. Anyway, back outside now. Later, y'all.

RE: Root Beer

Vintage, it's likely because monk fruit is expensive. I'm okay with stevia sweetened sodas; my tastebuds don't perceive a flavor difference.

RE: What goes around......

Another classic that uses lemon Jello. Woolworth’s Icebox Cheesecake I made it with sugar-free orange Jell-O, orange flavoring, a toasted almond flour crust, and monk fruit sweetener. Not a drop remained. The family dubbed it Orange Fluff. Next time, I'm making it with pecan flour crust and a different flavoring in the plain gelatin I'll be using from now on, since I recently found out the sweetener in sugar-free Jell-O is bad for diabetics.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

We were totally fine, Magnus. Not even a strong breeze. Meanwhile, the weather's gone from air conditioning required to opening up the house and letting the breeze through. Did have to turn the a/c back on today, because it's so humid. Humidity and I don't get along so well. Brother announced they will not be driving down for Thanksgiving. His area is rife with COVID and he's too spooked to leave their property. Totally understand that. We'll just post pictures of all the yummy food we'll be cooking.... Still sorting through Mom's stuff as she finds another box to unpack. I hung a number of pictures in her living and dining rooms, then convinced her to let the VHS tapes go. She doesn't watch them and none of the family have VHS players anymore. Next time we go to Sister's place, we'll hang more pictures in Mom's bedroom suite, and then I think we'll finally have her moved in. Other than visiting Sister and Mom, Tall and Short Friends, we just vegetate on our hillside. You know, like normal... Walking down to the mailbox this morning, we watched two bucks chasing does into our neighbor's property. I don't think those does are quite ready yet. Czarny's got his human trained. He takes me for a walk several times daily now, then retires for a long afternoon nap, then gets me moving again. He's a better life coach than most humans. Didn't sleep much last night; humidity stopped up my sinuses, so I think I'll join him for a short nap. Later, y'all.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We'll miss you, Richard, and all your lovely posts about Suzie, Dixie, etc., but we will try to keep the Old Fella thread moving along. We're in a lovely weather phase, with a cold front inbound for Sunday that will drop us into actual autumn temperatures. We might even have to build a fire or two, but it still won't be cold enough to have to turn on the heater.

Welcome, Brian. Looking forward to sharing tales of camping adventures.

RE: What goes around......

Oh, wow. I remember that cheesecake. I can alter the recipe for a diabetic safe version, no sweat. Looking forward to that one.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Darn clouds obscured the shower. Sigh. Blue norther blew in today. Went from a high around 80 to 43 and windy within a couple hours. At least we got 9/100" rain, but the wind was so strong it dried it up, so it didn't do much good. Before the rain hit, Czarny walked me three times. Got quite a few steps done, according to my FitBit. He's not been real happy with the weather change; can't get his human to go outside now... Saw a beautiful 6-point buck across the road. Hope he survives hunting season. Speaking of the cat, it's play time. Guess I'll pull out the red dot and tire him out. Later, y'all.

RE: What goes around......

My sister had a Labor Day dinner, and decided to have each of us bring a dish that was popular the year we were born. So for 1952, I found a Sangria Gelatin Ring. It was so freakin' good that it's landed on our holiday dish list. I posted it in a separate thread a couple weeks ago.

RE: Root Beer

Just ordered the Zatarains root beer concentrate. Most of the "sugar-free" concentrates out there actually contain sucralose or maltodextrin, which are not recommended for diabetics. I love, love, love root beer, and I'm looking forward to making my own.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

That's exactly what we've experienced here, Magnus, including the noses down at our local cuisine. Most of our full time makeup is also retired military, educators, and medical. It's sometimes amusing, more often a tad irritating, to have some city type waltz in here acting like we're less educated/worldly than that city punk. The reality is we've lived far more exciting and diverse lives than the ones looking down on us, and we landed here for the peace and quiet. We rather cherish how quiet it can be out here, when the tourists aren't here in such droves. The county depends on tourism, though, so here at the lake we have lots of vacation rentals. In the county seat, they restrict vacation rentals, especially in the older neighborhoods and the more densely packed ones, simply to keep parking issues at a minimum. It's working so far. The county seat will probably go over 100,000 population in a couple years, so big city issues have already cropped up, and the city and county commissioners are only now understanding that they can't keep doing the small town things. I'm glad we're well away from town, even with the tourists mucking up the weekends all summer. More of us than not have sufficient acreage to not have to listen to our next door neighbors' antics -- although I really enjoyed the mariachi band just down the hill and across from our fence late last summer... Czarny's back on the porch with yet another grasshopper. Between him eating all but a leg, and the bitty ants hauling away said leg, the hopper population is way down. One thing I've not seen this year at all are the dung beetles. With all the deer, fox and raccoon poo being deposted all around, one would think we'd see them frequently. Maybe I'm not looking at the right time. Still have several hummingbirds hanging around, although they're not feeding near as frequently at the feeder. I guess we have sufficient hummingbird appropriate plants to keep them going until they finally migrate. We were supposed to have the monarch migration through here this week and next, but I've not seen any. Other butterflies, yes. Really makes me want to move forward on the hummingbird and butterfly garden, but the big expense there is the deer fence we'll have to erect before even trying to plant, and it won't be cheap. Sigh. The shrub rosemary is already starting to bloom. It blooms normally from November into January. Absolutely lovely bluish-light purple blooms. We didn't know this variety even had blooms when we planted it -- we were just trying to cover up a flat rock ledge in the middle of the lawn -- and now they are our favorite plants. We do absolutely nothing to them and they thrive, and the deer don't eat them. It's warm enough to go swimming now, so I'll do that. Later, y'all.

RE: Junk Food Breakfast Cereals

I remember eating cold cereal. I preferred Grape Nuts, Raisin Bran, Wheat/Corn/Rice Chex, Shredded Wheat, and plain Cheerios. If I wanted them sweet, I always preferred to do it myself. I used to eat Cheerios for a snack, out of the box, no milk. But with diabetes, even plain Cheerios are not good. Just about all the main grains will cause a glucose spike, so I avoid them, except for the occasional bowl of hot oatmeal with butter. Add lots of butter and I don't really miss the sweetener anymore. On rare occasions, I can find a muesli mix out of mostly nuts and seeds and no sugar added, and I have that for breakfast. I'm good for the day, then, not needing anything else until the evening. Do miss the cereal at times, though.
