Well, that was one fast week! Where did it go? We did have a couple coolish days and I was hoping. My hopes were dashed when I checked out the week ahead.
I do not see a real cool-down coming just yet. Maybe the snow won't be falling on Halloween, maybe. It could, of course, it has before.
DH has to take the fancy-schmancy riding mower to the shop. Sigh, not even two years old. I seriously believe we should just hire a lawn service and quit messing around with mowers. I think the money end of it would probably be about the same and he wouldn't have to do the work. We should probably be in an apartment situation now, anyway ...
I'm feeling better, not my breathing, of course, but most of the sneezing and snotting seems to be over. Obviously the allergy alert isn't referring to my allergies. (Or maybe I did have a cold. ???)
My grandson is 29 today. Happy Birthday, Brian! That means, my granddaughter is 30? Wait a minute, how the bleep did that all happen? This is getting pretty darn scary...
Last night, I watched the previews of the next season of Poldark. I guess it is supposed to start in late September. I wonder how much the writers will mess with it? I was remembering something about Demelza's character and they were talking about her knickers. It bothered me for quite some time. No, I'm not a dirty old lady ... well, that's beside the point ... I finally did a search - the word "knickers" had not been invented in 1783, so she couldn't have said anything about them. (Much less owned a pair) I'm sure there are other holes in the screenplay and I think Mr. Graham did his research as far as that part of it went. I have finished all of the books in the series and deduced he had a lot of help with finishing them, especially the final one. I can't see Masterpiece going all the way through the books without putting more of themselves into it than Mr. Graham did after the 8th book. JMHO.
I leave you with a sad note: Tacky killed and ate a bright yellow bird on the front porch. I figured out that the bird I caught on the camera a while ago was a yellow warbler - that's what she ate.
Wishing you a great week ahead, sunshine and flowers - at least good things!
