A Few Odds and Ends

Weather is dull, hot, and dry. Hubby is watching NASCAR Busch as only Hubby can. I'm cooking a simple dinner but one Hubby likes. Polish sausage, simmered with onion and bell pepper; liquid almost cooked away. Served over rice.

We lost our big shade tree in the front yard to a storm. This fall is the time to replace it so I've been reading about trees. At this point a rather large willow oak looks good. I'll have the nursery bring it and put it in the ground in late October or early November. Old folks can't do that kind of stuff, you know. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

Make note that this is the last day of summer. Does that make tomorrow the first day of fall? October is a busy month for me. A birthday for every week and more. I make the cakes. I hope I can be creative enough to make them all without buying another Wilton cake pan because I already have several and they take up a lot of room. I'm retired now, you know, and I have lots of time on my hands to take care of these things.

The best to everyone. Outta here for now.

It was hot here yesterday. Everything is starting to die off. Last day of summer for sure.

I have heard that once a person retires, they get busier than ever.

It's hard to believe that summer is over and fall is here.
