Where does the time go? Who turns the pages so fast? It seems as if the summer is disappearing before our very eyes.
The grass is turning brown in some spots…especially spots in the sun. I am mowing about every ten days now instead of every seven days. I have finally made my peace with the lawn mower’s hydrostatic drive…will wonders never cease…goes to show you even old people can learn new stuff. I am a sight to behold on that mower with every inch of my body covered except my face…I had one small spot of Poison Ivy earlier and since then I cover up when I mow. Soon the grass should go dormant.
My Mother had some real pretty petunias.
Our Wood Carving group was featured in an area publication called Boomers. The reporter took photos and wrote a great story. She featured the Christmas Ornament that I designed…and now people have been calling wanting to purchase them. So now we have to work on those orders.
We have 63 Christmas ornaments completed and ready to go for Christmas….a few more and we will be done with that project!
It doesn’t help that we have spent most of the summer recuperating from “the crud” we had this spring.
Health Update: I have almost completely recovered, I have some lingering tiredness. Far Guy still has his cough and his oxygen saturation numbers are down, he has seen a Pulmonary specialist and will go on oxygen when he exercises and as needed for his COPD and Emphysema. Some days he feels just fine and other days he feels just rotten. His lung function is down to 27 %. Not the news that either of us had hoped for. We have to be real proactive with his health, stay away from sick people and germy crowds, and not wait around if he gets a cold. The specialist said that 50% of the time it will be a bacterial infection that needs to be treated promptly.
One day at a time.
