Are you adjusting to the time change yet? Yeah? Me either. The hardest part for me has to be the shortening of the days as Fall moves right along. I keep running out of daylight. No worries though, most any of the critters are quite happy to remind me that the sun's going down and there's no dinner in their respective bowl, feeder, etc.
It's supposed to be beautiful here for the next several days. A bit windy but then it's Fall. I wonder when I'll actually stop thinking like a transplanted Texan and stop saying things like "I can't believe I'm wearing layers this time of year". Or "Wow, it's so pretty" while watching the leaves turn red, orange, yellow. Sometimes I hope that I never really get *used* to it. That each season will continue to be a new and exciting thing.
As I sit here with my 3rd cup of coffee and my trusty pen and to-do list I'm almost ready to start the day. Almost. LOL My list of to-do things is taking on a slightly different Fall type slant. I'm still adjusting to NOT going out in the garden first thing after the dew dries. I look forward to some time to do some crocheting and a bit of knitting. Easy stuff of course. I've got some yarn found cheap at a garage sale I can use. I've started a lapgan with bits and pieces of leftover yarn. Yarn isn't very high on the list when your budget is as tight as it is around here. I might actually pick up some double pointed needles though and try those socks that a reader suggested. Of course that would mean a trip to town AND a stop at a big box store. (Two of my most favorite things to do. NOT!!!)
I had another "procedure" on my back this week and I admit I do feel better. Although my back issues are genetic and I know things will eventually and progressively get worse, I'm finding some welcome relief for now. Just another thing I'm thankful for this month.
Today's agenda includes bread baking day, a couple of loads of laundry, (I'm going to take advantage of this beautiful sunshine and wind to dry them) I've got a roast in the crock-pot so dinner will be easy peasy, go pull up some of the death by frost plants and haul them to the compost bins, start "winterizing" the outdoor kitchen stuff, (which really just means I need to get things picked up and put away) maybe make some cookies and get my "yarn fix" in. Much more than that probably wont be done around here today!
Do you remember last month when Mars DVD player took a dump? We ordered one from Ebay and it came in two weeks later. Hooked that baby up and it worked exactly 5 times and died. Sent back and waited almost two weeks for a replacement. This one didn't work AT ALL. So back it went and finally just this week, they kindly gave me a refund but would not reimburse my shipping. *sigh* Another DVD player from another company has been ordered. Due to arrive in the next few days. It seems silly for me to keep Netflix active but each time I think we will be back to watching our nightly movie, well...
I'm still waiting.........
