Cook or bake, hang wallpaper or work on T. This morning it is making cinnamon rolls.
Hey Tyrone, I gathered, cracked, soaked and dehydrated all these English walnuts for my wife to make several varieties of spiced nuts for Christmas gifts for family and neighbors.
Jay, when I was stationed at NAS LeMoore we had English walnut trees in our yard, they were the greatest! That is one thing I do miss about California.
Mouth watering Jay. You don't have to mail mine, i'll just swing by.
In our previous house that we had built, my wife and I decided to test the strength of our marriage by wallpapering practically half the place. (popular back then, not so much now). Everything was going good until the day we papered the stairway to the second floor of our Cape Cod. I'm out on planks attached to an ext. ladder and the top step, trimming a 14' or so length of paper, she's below, I drop the friggin utility knife, missing her by fractions of an inch! That was the last we papered using ladders together.
" I drop the friggin utility knife, missing her by fractions of an inch!"
Tim, are you still under suspicion or have you convinced her that it was definitely an accident ?
We have a Pignut Hickory in our back yard, i tried to open one and i hit it with a hammer, i think it went into outer space so i tried putting one in a vise it broke open but it was not worth the effort to dig the meat out.
Dick... good one!! No, actually every so often we think of that little episode when we're doing something around the house a bit safer!! And now we laugh about it. And I quickly remind her, no more wallpapering! When we built the current place, we only did the bottom half of the den. No ladders, much safer!
I have one American Walnut tree and one Butternut right behind my garage. Usually, if family do not come and get some or the neighbors, I pick up a five gallon bucket full, put them in the garage with a lid on the bucket and let them sit all winter in the garage. In the spring I take them out of the bucket and dump the liquid / stain into a container. BTW the nuts I pick up still have the husks on them. The natural stain is great and the squirrels seem to like the stewed nuts better. Like I said, in the fall there are more nuts than we can use, but come springtime after the snow there are no nuts left on the ground.
Your church may expect a 10% tithe.
When wifey gardens, she expects to lose 10% of her crop. She calls it her tithe to nature. Killing all the pests is greedy and harmful.
Likewise, giving 10% of your time and energy to your wife is a tithe.
