We have been hot and humid but fall is showing some of her colors.
The leaves are fading and you see hints of color coming.
My gardens are getting a bit ragged. But the naked lady lilies I got from a friend came up ! A wonderful surprise this time of year. Now I am on the hunt for more!
My poor veggies didn't do well this year we had so much rain in July. But I have made 2 batches of sauce and have frozen some tomatoes. We are eating zucchini daily and this weekend, now that it is cooler, I will make some zucchini bread to stock the freezer for this winter.
The last concert on the common was this past Wed. We have seen the change in the light. It seems so gradual and then all of a sudden the days are shorter!
My sweet B got another trail ride in before school. I was not able to go but her grandfather did (Pepe)! The young guy taking them on the ride said "I have a horse that doesn't want to behave who wants him?" B's hand shot up and she said "I will take him" Bold,coming from a rank beginner! It makes me so proud of her that is confidence! She starts riding lessons in Sept. Oh and by the way she did handle him!
I have been hearing rumblings on line about price increases on linen or having a hard time even getting it for rug hooking. So I took my Christmas gift certificate and headed to Dorr Mill. Well the prices are going up. I spent double my gift certificate and I don't feel I got all that much!
Magnolia magazine this month had this woman and she talks about her decision to walk every day no matter the weather. I walk a lot but I am a fair weather walker, my goal is to walk every day. I think it is good for the nerves. And my nerves need lots of help lately.
The news breaks my heart and really takes my breath away. The sadness is over whelming.
Then the storm coming into the gulf...My brother lives there but he is here right now for a visit.
I got news my dear sweet 97 year old aunt has covid. I am beyond sad she is vaccinated, I hope that makes all the difference. But she has become fail in the past few months. All I can do is pray. To live a good life for that long and to have covid be the last straw just does not seem right.
There just seems so much to pray for lately. I have many blessings. I almost feel guilty about those blessings when I hear the news.
Have a wonderful week, always counting your blessings.
