I can't seem to be able to keep up with anything here lately, ie: reading my favorite blogs, blogging myself, etc. I've been to the city, saw the parents and my brother who was visiting. Had a lot of fun there. Then spent a couple of days with my daughter. That was good. She had a party with a Moroccan theme. Quite a crowd showed up and everyone had made a Moroccan dish. A fire was lit in the fire pit outside, some people were out there chatting, others in groups all over, chatting. It was a good evening. Just one little incident that I still laugh at. I was sleeping on a futon in the yoga room so before most had left I went up to bed. I was beat! Got my pyjamas on and got nicely tucked away when the bed fell over and I ended up sprawled across the floor. The lamp flew off the end table and hit the floor with a crash. I expected a crowd of people to come running up the stairs to see what had happened but no.....I told my daughter the next morning and she said they heard a noise but well, thought nothing of it. haha.
I've been so busy trying to get the garden put to bed for the winter. I've done quite a bit this past week but unfortunately I've hurt my hip once again. This happens every October. Something I do in the garden triggers it. So, I don't know how much more will get done. Thankfully the worst of the work is over so I might just sit back now and say the heck with the rest of it until spring.
Not much in the way of leaves changing colour and everything looking very autumn like this year. Most of the leaves seem to have dried up and just fallen off. I noticed the same thing happening in the city.
I've decorated the mantle this year. It looks rather pretty.
All in all it's been a good year weather wise. One of the best summers in a very long time. Hoping the winter is not too harsh.
