A Cute Mushroom to greet the New Year

I have sprayed my big mushroom patch 3 or 4 times each day and waited and waited.  The whole thing has been getting whiter and whiter but that was not what was supposed to happen and I am not very good at waiting so then I forgot to water it one day and Norman did it for me.  On the second day I forgot he watered it again and found a little mushroom poking out of one of the holes.  The motherly feelings have now taken over and I remember to spray my patch every day and now I have three more tiny mushrooms.  the waiting is over and the daily check on size is fun and easy.  I’ll keep you posted on the size.  Patty says I have to make a lobster newburgh  when they are big enough as these mushrooms are supposed to taste like lobsters, can’t wait.                                                                     Norman has been replacing all the mop boards and is now almost done.  He is painting the last of them now.  The new mop boards look really sharp.  Next year we will get two area rugs to finish the living room and the dinning room.  With the new windows from last year and now the mop boards and rugs the place is really looking nice.  We had not planned on doing anything more this year but the hot water tank began to leak so yesterday we went to Lowes and ordered a new water tank and today we signed the contract.  It will be installed on Friday.  When we put a new hot water tank in in Blairsville, GA we got a nice rebate for doing it from the electric  company, here there is no rebate and you have to pay for a building permit to replace a tank and have so much extra stuff on it to meet the code it almost doubles the cost of the tank and installation.  Oh, well that is the price of living in the city.  Get some, lose some but I guess it all works out about the same.

Have a great day!!

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
