Thanks for the well wishes on the Headache yesterday! I STILL had one most of today, as well, but the weather was SO gorgeous this afternoon, I just tried to tuck it away!
I didn't manage to take any pictures today,,,,so I thought I'd plug my friend Debra's upcoming Blog Event(s) and borrow a picture! If the weather holds,,,,as it SHOULD tomorrow,,,,I think I'll head to one of our great local farms and pick up a few pumkins and gourds!
I SO wish I would have had my camera when my son Sean and I took the dogs to the local (Blackman's) Lake today! They had a great swim and Sean and I found a BIG stick, about 3ft long that they retreived together and brought in! "Kodak Moment" and moi, with no camera! Shortly thereafter I thought we were going to have to swim out and get Shadow, my black lab,,,,,,I swear she paddle halfway out in the lake after a pair of Mallards...........fortunately, it was all fun and games and both dogs got a good workout!
Afterwards, Sean and I came home and tackled some cubbies in the back of my house that were in GREAT need of pruning and cutting! Am I the only one that manages to have the birds and squirrels "Help" plant things in the yard? Nut trees, Blackberries, and even a "volunteer" Hawthorne tree! We spent a couple of hours getting rid of these "features." Ughhh and OUCH!
I was making a trip to the little mom and pop market for Cat food, when I discovered the Snohomish Farmer's Market was STILL going! I thought LAST week was the end of it, and LAST week it was pouring! Buckets! Still in my gardening clothes, I hesitated, because honestly? I know a lot of people in this little town after 30 years. And there is grubby,,,,,,,and then there is GRUBBY! And that was ME with a capital "G!"
But we're talkin' FRESHLY picked Organic tomatoes, the last of the Fresh Peaches from Yakima, the cutest little head of Red leaf lettuce and a baguette. Oh and a square of Spiced Apple Cake that I'll share with Sean when he gets home from the College tonight. HA! Life is too short!
This week FLEW BY! I cannot believe that were starting October already! If I get out and buy my pumpkins,,,,,,,I'll link to Debra's Event tomorrow night! Have a great weekend!
Hugs and Love,
