I can't say this was my best Friday though. Heading home from downtown today our car lost complete power in the middle of a torrential downpour. We were heading to the top of the bridge and only 40 minutes before the start of the 5pm rush hour. That's not the worst of it. You couldn't see 20 feet in front of you and our flashers weren't even working. Ugghh... Called the emergency road service and waited and waited. Called back and they dispatched them to the wrong bridge.
All I can say is Thank the Lord, his grace was with us and kept us protected. Nothing scarier than people flying up on you and barely missing you on a bridge.
So what exactly have I been doing for a month?
For starters I gave up running. I really, really miss it too. I got bursitis in my knee. This picture was before it got really big. I changed my workout routine getting rid of squats and anything else that would over work the knee and replaced them with others. I'm happy to say that this week I went back to walking (and just a little lite jogging).
I made a new ironing board cover and continued to iron clothes every week. Neil ripped said new ironing board cover, which got him the stink eye from me.
Neil has been playing Mr. Green Jeans (a throwback to our Captain Kangaroo days) and is having fun nurturing his tomato plants.
While he's tending tomatoes I'm filling window boxes. I spray painted the old black trays aqua and added lime coleus. Much brighter and cheerier now.
My first sunflowers ever. They were a little sad looking but they still made me smile. Next year I will shop for better seeds and plant them earlier, in big bunches. I'm already excited about it.
Loved my pretty fuchsia zinnias. I'll be planting more of theses too.
The last couple of months it seemed to rain a lot. Sadly beach days were few and far between. We're hoping to catch a few more rays before the warm days are gone.
Sometimes it's just good to walk away. You get a fresh perspective and you can find the joy in things again. It's good to be back. It's time to change my schedule around. That's what's nice about a change of season, it's like you get a chance to make a fresh start.
What's your favorite part about fall? Mine is the crisp air & the many colors. I feel energized by it all.
It's fall y'all...
