In the Army now

#1 Grandson that was a Marine is in the Army now. He just got out of basic and is off to somewhere for more training. We are proud of him. I hope he goes for 20 now.

Fall cleaning

I pulled up most of my zinnas today. They were still blooming, but had mildew on many of the leaves. It was spreading to the purple crape Myrtle. It was so beautiful earlier I want it to survive the winter. The zinnas were crowding it way to much.

It was another fallish day. I am glade to be rid of the 90 degree days.

I have been cleaning, organizing, and trashing. I am trying to do a little each day. The living room and my room are looking better. The kitchen and laundry are next. I think the current fad word for this is downsizing. It used to be called getting rid of junk, as apposed to junking, which is collecting junk. Current fad word for that is hoarding. Now, if I could start downsizing my weight as opposed to hoarding.

Fall weather this morning

I got up early and started on a walk just before sunrise. Well, supposed to be sunrise. I did not actually see the sun until an hour later. The sky was hazy. I guess it is smoke from the West coast fires.

I did a little grocery shopping, but now I am just lazing around.

I have downloaded a couple of books to read. Beautiful lazy day.

Roses are red

Helen's flowers are looking much better since she's been gone. Greg mowed the yard yesterday and everything looks pretty and neat except the porch. I guess I need to sweep the leaves and grass off.

Our weather has been beautiful and kids still have real school.  All is good.

Happy Birthday Robert

Burning off the fog...

It is very foggy this morning. A nice cool morning for a walk.

Lots of spiderwebs in the bushes.

Every wonder what spider made those webs all over the ground on dewey mornings? Me too. The net says if they disappear when the few burns off they are not spiderwebs at all.  If you really look at them, they have a much denser weave than spiderwebs.
