Now that Daylight Savings Time is here
I guess I have to accept that it's actually Fall.
I love Fall!
But I dread what comes next.
And now with the time change
and most of the leaves on the ground...
I know it won't be long before it's COLD.
The temps this weekend have been quite warm for the Midwest.
Yesterday it was low 70's and almost that today.
I worked in the yard, planting roses that I had bought and a few other discounted perennials that were waiting to get in the ground.
I tidied up the yard a bit and moved things around.
I don't know if you recall but I had my washing machine die at the beginning of the summer.
I had rolled it out the back door, across the patio and then out the the yard.
No one could see it as it was hidden from view by morning glories, vines, trees and fencing in some areas.
But now that it's all dying down and most of the leaves have fallen, I needed to get it out of my yard.
It was too heavy to put on a dolly and I wasn't able to wobble it back and forth because of the grass,
so I rolled it.
I could do about 3 rolls and I'd have to stop and rest.
When I got it down part of the driveway to a spot not too far from the street but still partially hidden by the house, I waited.
I live on a busy street and traffic goes by in spurts.
I waited for a break in traffic and then rolled it like crazy to the curb.
It's odd that I was embarrassed about being seen rolling a washing machine
and yet I share the fact here on my blog for the world to read.
Anyway, I got it to the curb and started weeding and planting up by the house
and I kid you not, within 20 minutes a truck stopped and two people loaded up my broken, doorless washer with mud and scratches all over it.
They will probably get a few dollars when they scrap that thing
and i was happy to have it gone.
So I worked in the yard for a while
and finally went inside when it was time to feed the dogs.
While outside I thought a lot about whether I really want to move
and why and where.
I came up with decision and I'm pretty sure I've got it figured out.
I'll save those ideas for another post.
Last night I spent a lot of time on Pinterest.
That always helps me and motives me.
It gave me several ideas about my home.
Totally different ideas than I've had before.
But I think that's what I need to do,
to look at things from a whole different perspective.
I'll share those later too.
But that got me to thinking about writing posts
and about people who read my blog.
I must say, the comments I got, the condolences about Vera....
Touched my heart and my soul.
I didn't feel so alone and it helps with the grief.
I am so glad that I have this world, this blog world full of wonderful caring people.
I'm blessed to have my blog friends.
So.... I'm going to concentrate more on my blog.
I'm not sure what all I'm going to do but I'm going to get organized,
read and learn from some of the links I found on Pinterest
and study some of the blogs whose layout and style I admire
and change it up.
I've got several ideas.
So if you see some changes, you know what's motivated it.
All of you!
Again! Thank you for being there!!!!
