to report on the home front today and I am thankful for that. I was sad that I was unable to go home for my friend’s funeral. It is too long a trip to go alone.
However, today is sunshiny and beautiful with the promise of brighter days ahead. It is 52 degrees today, to get up to 65 for the high. It doesn’t get much better than that for a great fall day. And this is the first day of Autumn. I love the fall and the spring of the year. The winter I can definitely do without. I guess I really don’t mind snow so much if I can still get out and go. The February blizzard of this year is still fresh in my mind. In fact, last winter is still fresh in my mind as it was one of the worst that I can remember in my lifetime.
We are still suffering drought here with less than 3 inches total rainfall for the months of July, August and September. My marigolds are dead as we had a frost a week or so ago and I didn’t cover them. I will try again next year.
I miss having my own house and my beautiful flowers. My friend Sandi told me that she takes long walks through the cemetery at home keeping an eye on Jim’s grave and I know that my friend Jo puts flowers on it too. I have met some really nice people here but nothing to compare with old friends of many years. Oh, I am sorry for being so nostalgic. Probably because of Jim’s birthday yesterday and mine looming ahead. Nothing like growing a year older to put your thoughts in prospective.
I have a few errands to run. But first I want to share this picture with you.
My kids, another memory from the past.
