And now for something completely different-
For me, lugging out the Autumn & Halloween decorations is like opening presents on Christmas morning! Makes me down right gleeful it does!
I'm battling my first head cold/sinus/throat thing of the season. Been sick since Saturday but doing much better today than I was. Par for the course as they say.
We got nearly an inch of rain today which isn't enough but we'll take what we can get. (More rain tomorrow & Thurs - thunderstorms tomorrow!). Only bad part was that the humidity rose every time it Stopped raining! While raining, 70 something % humidity. When it wasn't raining, 90 something % humidity! I finally realized it wasn't me (I had a fever Sat & Sun) and turned the ac on late this afternoon after checking the weather on my cell. (Not much into day time television).
There are 3, count 'em 3, jalapeno pepper plants growing in my garden out front, in 3 separate containers, none of which I ever planted seeds for! I didn't even notice the end of last week while I was watering & caught sight of a pepper. Talk about a garden mystery! (Aka squirrel madness!) *Update: I believe I've found one more pepper plant growing out back, 9/28/10.*
We finally have grass growing in all but a few patches of the back yard! Perhaps the "third time's a charm" after all. I love watching it grow in! We'll see what happens once this coming Winter passes.
Looks as though the weather has canceled lunch plans with the gals tomorrow. It's supposed to be thunder storming most of the day. Since neither of them have a car and I can't drive again yet, we were all walking to & fro our destination down town, on the water. No need to take a chance and get stuck outside walking there or back, especially with all of the trees in our neighborhood. But we've got the book club meet up Thurs evening so not all is lost!
Speaking again of Thursday, Hubbs & I will schedule my day-stay surgery for asap in October and find out if the kidney tube comes out that same day or if I'll need a 2nd day-stay for that procedure. (Unless the test they do the morning of the initial day-stay shows the obstructed stone is gone, then surgery is canceled and the tube comes out). I cannot wait for this to be over & done with.
Hope you had a great weekend and a smooth start to your week!
Sending love, hugs & Blessings...
