We have a Burr Oak that is turning color.
Not sure why it is stressed...
Boy there are very few acorns this year...a few but none can be heard plink plinking off the wood shed. Some years the acorns are so heavy they roll under your feet ...and then I have to rake them up.
There are no Hazel Nuts either...the ones that were there were eaten by deer or stolen by squirrels.
I made the Fall list...if nothing else it will be a reminder of things I have not done.
Yesterday I sprayed for ants in several places, we recycled and went to the Post Office. I took care of some Thistle in my other baby brothers lawn at his shop. I worked on some cards while doing laundry and tackled two jobs that were overdue and didn't make the list. Cleaning up the kitchen sink and the drain baskets...and the Whirlpool tub needed a good cleaning up...hot water and automatic dish soap and then a cold rinse. I managed to card some dog hair late in the afternoon...one more afternoon and it will all be ready to spin.
Far Guy worked on his new old car.. he put the back seat together and scrubbed up the mats on the floor boards. He ordered some special absorbent mats to put under the engine so my garage floor stays clean...so he drove the new old car out of the garage and then back in again. We took photos for the insurance company.
We had ribs and green beans for supper...and lemon pudding...like lemon pie without the crust....cause basically I suck at making pie crusts!
