Hope everyone enjoyed the long holiday weekend, and enjoyed lots of yummy food. Schools in my area have been back in session almost a month, yet in other parts of the country schools just started back this week. Hard to believe Summer is winding down.
One of Those Days: As hot as it was, I had a few errands I wanted to run today. However...There was a glitch in my plans. Fluffed and puffed just in case I ran into someone I knew, out the door, in the car and turned the key - Ooops! It tried hard but would NOT turn over. Long story short - Call to road service, diagnosis equals new battery. Got that taken care of. Dang - the price of car batteries these days !!
After standing out in the heat too long while dealing with the car issue, decided to cut the errand list short, picked up lunch and came home. Word of advice - don't eat right after getting too hot.
Another item on the agenda was to take pics of some jewelry for one of my daughters that she made, so got it set up on the patio table where the sun would shine on it - what happened? Batteries in camera were "deader than a door knob" (where did that expression come from??) !
I immediately checked my phone to make sure it was charged.
Just one of those days.....
An Update: Some of you may remember the big kitchen project my daughter started a while back...
Work in progress
They got up to water on their kitchen floor recently. Short story - water line into kitchen sink ruptured. Bottom line - large section of floor damaged.
Needless to say, she is NOT a happy camper. Dealing with preparing meals, cleanup, etc., under adverse conditions while the cleanup/repair work is done can be over whelming - especially with 3 children.
When I had to deal with water damage several months ago, it was not near what she is having to deal with (thank goodness).
So - kitchen renovation, and pickle and jelly making shut down for now.
Odds and Ends: Had planned to have a finished jewelry project to share this time, but just did not happen. Hey - I started on it, so does that count?
Daughter sent me a picture of plant that grew up in the middle of some daylilies, and ask me what I thought it was. Who Me?!? I Love flowers, but know little to knowing about them. Actually this was not a flower, but a sorghum or millet plant.
Where did that come from ? Well.. Seems the "Little Red Head Cupid" dumped some bird seed in the flower bed last Spring. Yep! My suggestion to her was to keep an eye on that flower bed as there is no telling what all kind of seeds were in the mix.
I have to admit I am ready for a break in the high temps. I like Fall and looking forward to cooler temps, just not what follows.
How about you - What is going on around your abode ?
