I couldn't come up with a clever title for this post. :-) What I was thinking of calling it was "Life on a Dimmer Switch". But I thought that was kind of.. bleak? But the light has gone off here with the long summer going away and it's darkish, dim, grey, misty, cold.. but it's okay. I just went out to try to capture the Pin Oak tree leaves as they turn and hid my camera lens under the eave of the house on the deck and actually found a neat image of the branches and red leaves.
I heard a humming behind me and turned to see a darling little hummingbird at the feeder just a foot away from me and went to get a photo and BING.. my battery died. SHUCKS! So, I came in and put a few stitches in the never-ending wedding gift blanket.. and Buddy curled up on the side of my lap. The fire is burning and it's cozy inside.
Kristi got some good photos of Simba.. our adopted feral farm cat. She's worried today as he hasn't touched the food she put out for him but I'm going to think positive that he's okay and will show up later. Right?
He looks pretty healthy sitting down, but when he stretches out to walk his is very thin and has the skinniest tail ever. I hope he fattens up for the winter and thrives here.
I did well making doctors and dentist appointments - I got in to the chiropractor on Monday afternoon and hope he can help me with a painful hip issue - and got my mammogram already yesterday. I'm sure you were dying to hear all that exciting news.. :-) Dayle took me to both appointments, which I think is sweet. After the appointment yesterday we went to lunch and then we went to Walmart to see the Pioneer Woman merchandise. I was disappointed in how they had the items in like 6 different places instead of putting it all together, but we found most of it I think. :-) I love the dishes.. I have a favorite, which of these would you pick to have a set of? I like the floral ones on the bottom left. I also like the aqua ones top left.
I have a set of 4 of the pretty aqua bowls.. LOVE them.. they are very well-made. Do you like the purple or the aqua?
I picked up two of the goblets and the tumblers. Our old set of tumblers have mostly all broken. I'd like to replace them with these but we thought (well.. Dayle thought I shouldn't buy 8 or 12 of them until we checked to see if they fit in the cabinet.. lol.. ). I also got an Acacia wooden spoon and a flat whisk from her line of kitchen gadgets. I used to have a flat whisk and like them as you can also use them to lift things out of boiling water, like boiled eggs, etc..
I am going to have to do some talking to myself to convince me to go swimming today. It's much harder to go off to jump in a cool pool when it's dim outside and drizzling. How many different names for rain do you know? We know a lot of them here in Oregon. Have a super day. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
