All Here & Accounted For

Like a lot of bloggers/journallers out there lately, I am at a loss for ideas and words. This is a holiday week here in the U.S. and I see lots of scurrying around to get things done. Not for me, though. My life never changes. Except we have a leak in a water pipe somewhere in the house, we think it is related to our kitchen faucet which has been leaking for a while. I patched it with black electrical tape in two spots but I think the leak is deep in the guts of the faucet or else farther down in the cold water pipe.

I’ve made contact with a plumber who says he MAY be able to squeeze us in sometime this week, but he is off on Thursday and Friday and of course Saturday and Sunday, so if he doesn’t get here by end of business tomorrow, we’ll be waiting til next week.

It always seems that something breaks around Thanksgiving.

We had our first dusting of snow overnight here. I thought about taking a photo of it but decided against it. It’s all melted now. My camera has a hard time holding charge in the 4 batteries in it. I’m ready to give up on it. I have a little 4-battery charger thing that plugs into the wall and I’ve been recharging the batteries (I have 8 in total) but after taking a few photos, I get the notice on the little screen saying my batteries are “exhausted”.

I am getting too old to fiddle with gadgets.

I did take a couple of photos the other night of the rest of the gang here during show time after supper… worth 1,000 words…



That’s all I’ve got.


Bex & Co.

It’s in every one of us to be wise;
Find your heart, open up both your eyes.
We can all know every thing without ever knowing why.
It’s in every one of us, by and bye.

  1. It sounds nice being indoors in Crow Cottage with the colder weather coming. Just think, you have all winter to fiddle with the camera and figure out how to bring it back to life. ğŸ˜Ž

    I meant to wish you ALL a happy Thanksgiving here in the U.S. but forgot. So consider yourself wished that. Whatever you choose to do. We don’t do anything special anymore, however, I do plan to make a recipe that I’ve been wanting to try, buttermilk fried chicken (Pioneer Woman’s recipe) so we’ll see how that goes. But all other aspects of Thursday around here will be as usual. Paul says he won’t go lobstering, which I told him he could do if he wanted… but he says no. He’s out there today trying to make up for it.

    TT: I have an extra set of batteries that I’ve been switching out. But if 4 batteries will only last me a week or two, or less, I’m not impressed. And I will not be taking many photos from now on. I got a crappy camera I think.

    In spite of leaky pipes, have a great Thanksgiving.


  4. Things look pretty cozy at Crow Cottage. Keep warm and dry, inside too!

    Yes things like to break over the holidays and if there are no holidays around they break on weekends. A few weeks ago we finally had the plumber replace the pipe under our sink which we had been layering with black tape for a long time. Took him longer to cut through the tape than to replace the pipe. Down here we got about two inches of snow and it is still snowing. It’s supposed to change to rain fortunately.

    What a good post. I hear the weather is coming your way. I hope that plumber gets to you this week. Love your photos. Everyone seems very comfy.

    Hey, Bex! With your batteries for your camera, all you need to do is replace them with a fresh set of rechargable batteries of the same kind.

    Rechargable batteries will only take X number of charges and then they die out. Just replace them and you’ll be good to go.
