The weather has taken that wonderful autumnal turn, cool in morning with warmer afternoons. The mums are coming along reaching for October bliss. However a few remaining pots of once lagging summer blooms have burst forth with new vibrancy as they too enjoy the cool nights.
No tea on deck this morning as Miss Biscuit had doctor’s appointment early. For three days she has been carrying her leg. She has slowed down, looks weary some, but when the trash truck etc. comes by she zips like a lightning bolt only using a mere three legs to do it. The vet says it is her hip and she wants to try meds first because a hip x-ray on a dog takes sedation. She said Biscuit needs “bed rest”, but the meds will make her feel better before she is healed. Ha, bed rest? Can you stop a freight train with a pea shooter?
A rare moment of resting peacefully!
Note those crossed legs!
I entered some poems in a contest this morning….only to realize the contest does not open until October. Such is how my mind works these days. The nice thing is I can resubmit as all early entries are being trashed. I also found a book in the closet, though it was new, and began to read. It is one I have already read, but is so good I am going to finish it twice!
My sister-in-law writes that the Ladies Home Journal has ceased publication! Sad news. She says the company is substituting Cosmo for the rest of the LHJ subscription…hardly a fair trade. So sad to hear another staunch pillar of early publications has folded. Have you readers heard of this already?
I made a big batch of pimento cheese…you just can’t buy it in the store this good. Tomato plants torn down for the year. Soup and bread recipes are coming out. DH is hungering for a road trip, and yes, a light-hearted trip sounds good for a few days. This time of year it is always lovely to coast around on back roads, watch scarecrows going up, see pumpkins on porches, and feel autumnal air. Soon maybe we can manage to hit the road in the Ruby Slipper, who knows?
Granddog Storm might proud of a new bone!
