  • Reading your fall "Honey Do" list just made me tired! Ha!....I have heard several of my friends already mention the Smoky Mountains and the leaves changing...I wonder with all the global warming if it will either be early or late, just curious I reckon!

    Me, I'm craving a fresh seafood kind of thing! I might need to visit friends on the Florida coast or head to North Myrtle Beach for garlic crabs and or a fresh crunchy grouper sandwich.

    The only chore on my immediate "Honey Do" is emptying her little box and cleaning windows so I can see out...One I have to do the other, well, let's just say, "Now that it's cooling off I'll just open the windows, I need to air this house out anyway!"

  • I am enjoying the last of the warm weather, especially since it is mostly not so hot any more. Even the cool evenings are nice (maybe a little fire in the fireplace). There is no fondness for fall colours, tho. They only signal the approach of winter. Once the leaves are off the trees, I will be counting the days until Spring.

  • Fall cleaning of the mold and mildew that overtakes my woodwork in the house over the summer is a priority. I have never lived with the necessity to extract as much moisture until the year spent in Charlottesville and now here.

    I keep a dehumidifier running but still have to tackle the heavy-duty job of ridding the house of moisture-laden problems at the end of the hot-humid season.

    This year I used more AC which is supposed to help but didn't. I am trying Tea Tree Oil this year after researching adequate measures.......I'll let you know if it works long term........

  • I just bought some tea tree oil for a cure on the advice of my doctor....it seems to be working however, that stuff stinks for sure...if you run across a bottle that has been de-stinked let me know!

    BTW I have an extra bottle if you can't find it, I got the last 2 from Wally World it was cheap, like under 3 bucks! Had to get a clerk to go find it in the back which was like pulling eye teeth!

  • Palindrome, you are using it as an anti-bacteria/mold treatment for your wood door panels, molding, etc.?

    And Chef, I presume you are using it for a health related issue?

    Sounds like an all around good thing to have around. I thought it was supposed to smell like nutmeg. Yes, no?

  • Not this bottle I have...Maybe it's just stronger then I expected...after using it on a tissue the smell lingered for days until that tissue was taken out to the bin.

    It didn't remind me of nutmeg, more like a dead tea filter left in a commercial maker getting stronger by the minute is what it reminded me of, but I guess you'd have to be there to have that experience!

    Before you use a lot of it you might want to test a spot, I did not dilute it any, I'm talking full strength..before you spend a lot of money on it for a large cure I'll be glad to give this back-up bottle I have so you can try it.

    Using it outdoors might be different!
