~ I am so, so ready for this! The heat and triple digits have returned to our area and I can't express in PG language how much I hate it. Really, it's September ~ and I'm ready for cooler temps, fall TV, crisp mornings to walk & really enjoy it, soups, roasted veggies, cookies, breads, you name it. Pumpkins and the scents of autumn just make me so happy!
~ Hope that you had a fun Labor Day weekend! I was able to meet a long-time internet friend in person. She flew into DFW yesterday and will be in Dallas all week on business. So much fun!
~ The political stuff is wearing on my nerves ~ hate all of the ugly stuff. Personally, I know who I'm going to vote for and just wish the election was next week...not 2 more months of this stuff. :/
~ My grandson is playing on the varsity football team at his high school this year and it's a thrill a minute to watch! He's so fast and intensely loves it. He won all kinds of awards in track so his running helps in football too. I have to tell you that he described himself as "African American" on Facebook for a long time with no photos. We asked him why and he said, "all the great athletes are black". Kids! :)
~ Haven't been able to finish the bedroom as the guy has not shown up to paint. :( Even though I cannot reach the top edge of the walls, I'm about ready to try. I showed you a few things I wanted to add here.
~ Just had allergy testing this morning and now I'll give myself shots twice a week. This Dr is a specialist and is amazing! I reacted strongly to trees, grasses, mold, cedar, dust, smoke, cats and, of all things, dogs! He said the reason I had a strong reaction to dogs was that I was around mine...and the granddogs...all the time. I must keep a food diary and avoid certain things. The latter will not be fun! Ragweed is sooooo bad right now as well as grasses (some peak in Sept) and mold.
~ My granddaughter has decided to be a golfer! Of course, I'll let you know when she goes on the PGA tour. :) Honestly, I hope she enjoys it. The golf team has to be at the local course for their last period each day. She asked her mom if they were going to buy her some "sticks". LOL My d-i-l reminded her they were called clubs.
~ So many of you have scheduled blog posts and that's great. It's neat to have them to look forward to. I can't do it...and frankly, I really don't know how you do it. You have to be extremely organized and energetic in my humble opinion. Both qualities seem to be lacking in my retirement years ~
~ Not sure if I mentioned earlier that I got a new car. I absolutely LOVE it! It's a black, Nissan Sentra with charcoal interior. I dislike car payments but the repairs I was having to do on the old one were terribly expensive and so frustrating. I realized I was judging any errand or visit by distance, the heat and where I might be stranded. :/ It's been a month and I'm realizing I can just get out and go anytime ~ heaven!
If you've made it this far, thanks so much for hanging in! What have you been up to? I'm trying to be better about reading blogs and responding. I honestly don't know where the time goes!
