Fall has fell, and it brought some chilly air with it. The BaldMan pulled the hibiscus into the mudroom because there was a chance of frost a few nights ago. I did some quick cleanup out front on Sunday, and brought in the side hose and sprinkler. There is more color in the trees now, … Continue reading There’s Definitely a Nip in the Air
August is a busy month here. We have something going on every weekend, and some stuff in between, also. At least the worst of the heat wave seems to be passing by. Since we are heading, fast and furious, into autumn, there is hope that we won't see too much more of the brutally hot … Continue reading Mid-Month Check-In
Oh, yeah, Tuesday. The days are getting all mixed up again. Not like there is so very much going on, because there really isn't. Or maybe that's the problem- the days are running together because nothing unusual is going on. I guess I just have to keep the calendar close! One of the plant orders … Continue reading What Day Is It, Again?
Yes, I know I have been. And for no good reason, really. A few things going on, but nothing that ate up ALL the time. We had more snow. Yay, April, you keep on being the mysterious surprise package you always were! Spring flowers are starting to bloom everywhere. I am working up some garden … Continue reading MIA
"All of my plans for the future involve me waking up tomorrow with a sudden sense of discipline and adherence to routine that I have never displayed even once in my life." I posted that meme a few days ago on my Facebook page, and boy, does it speak to me! I try to do … Continue reading The Best Intentions
Another week is in the books. Seems like they are speeding by now that we are approaching the last months of the year. The holidays are right around the corner. Thanksgiving is next week here in the US, and that is the official start to the Christmas season, although Christmas has been evident in stores … Continue reading This, That, and the Other Things
Actually I guess it's more absent with leave, because I am the one who let myself go missing from the blog. Or something like that. Anyway, yeah, I have been neglecting things here for a while, haven't I? It's getting dusty in here, too. *cough, cough* I have just been consumed with packing for our … Continue reading AWOL
I guess it is. Wow. After the seeming endlessness of the past year, this first month of 2021 has flown past. Or at least it seems so to me. I suppose, in some ways, that's a good thing. It might mean things are looking a bit more normal, right? Anyway, the weather has gotten cold … Continue reading Is It Really Nearly the End of January?
To say, really. I had hoped things would settle down by now, but, nope. It's like some weird, never-ending disaster movie. Can we just roll credits, please? Or, no, wait. Let's just skip straight to THE END. On a more up note (if you are an American football fan): How about those Cleveland Browns? I … Continue reading I Don’t Have Much
Often, when we hit this point in the year, I am thinking "Gee, I can't believe it's almost November. The year will be over before we know it." This year feels a bit different. I am sure you have all seen the memes about how long this year 2020 has seemed. With the COVID pandemic, … Continue reading Winding Down the Year
