This also is out the same window - just showing closer to the porch. The water that normally flows from the pump has been turned off and everything has been set for wintertime.
The trees are just starting to turn color here in our part of the state. We noticed them Friday when we were out taking in a few late season garage sales. Yesterday evening we took the golf cart and went fishing (did not even get a nibble). After the fishing period we drove deeper in the woods to see the appearance of the foilage.
This week was just another week, I suppose. Can't say that anything exciting happened ~ nothing bad either. Just the usual: cook, clean house, laundry, church, sew, and that is about it. I know for sure that the older I get the faster the time goes.
Hearing that we are going to have a freeze on Monday night I figured it was time to put away my summer short sleeved blouses and shirts. Got the totes out, took out the sweats and long sleeved garments, and packed away the summer ones. Wonder how many things that I could wear last cold season I will be able to fit my enlarging stomach/hips into this year? But gaining weight doesn't bother me as much as it used to. My sweet husband still thinks I have a wonderful body...(I know he can't see too well). I still have curves - some just turn the wrong way.
We are not going to church tonight as per our usual routine. Reason being the family life center is being turned into a carnival like atmosphere for all the children in their Halloween costumes. It will be wall-to-wall kiddos playing games, etc. So the normal service has been dismissed for this function. This is a good way to reach children and their parents that do not attend our church.
Late yesterday afternoon we put all the plants that have to be "wintered over" in the well house. Leon had fixed one long shelf that is permanent for my plants...but we also had to set up a board on two saw horses for some....several that were tall we just put them on the floor. He also installed several places for the hanging plants. It was such a lovely day that it seemed a shame to store them away...but we knew that within a few days it would be too cold at night for them. Now the back porch/patio looks so naked and barren...just the table and chairs.
When ironing yesterday I got my shoulders and neck in a contest with each other -because since then they have been hurting like the dickens. So I suppose I will contact the chiropractor tomorrow and get an appointment for Tuesday. Reason for Tuesday is we will be in town anyway for Leon's usual appt. for his blood sugar etc.
All of you have a grand and wonderful week...May the blessings from God flow ever so freely!
