The sun was shining early this morning, then it became cloudy...enough to make me hope for rain. We are extremely dry here. Yesterday I noticed some plants looking super wilty. These are plants that haven't wilted all summer in spite of the heat and dry conditions. Needless to say I carried water to give them all a drink. Tomorrow I'll water them again. We collect rainwater to use for the garden and flowers. Thankfully we still have some in our tanks.
Today Garry and I went to Glasgow to do some shopping. He indulged me and stopped at my favorite thrift shops. Interesting thing was he found more things than I did...socks (new), jeans and a book. One shop was having a $1 sale on certain color tags. I found a crocheted bag with a pink tag meaning it was only $1. It's a nice size to use for one of the many projects I usually have going...mostly crochet. It just helps keep everything together and ready to grab to work on, or take along if we're going somewhere.
We had an enjoyable day. Much nicer than if I had gone by myself.
While driving along the Parkway, I noticed that some of the trees are really beginning to look bare. And others were just gorgeous with their colors. The maple trees in our yard have lost nearly all of their leaves, while the oaks are just turning a lovely shade of red.
The acorns have really been falling today. How do I know?? They make a lot of noise on our roof when they do. It's interesting how they fall by the bunches. Our son like to throw a handful of acorns onto our roof. Of course, the grandkids are more than willing to pick them up so he can have several handfuls to throw. Anyway, this morning a bunch hit the roof that if I hadn't known better I would have blamed Darryl. I have no clue what makes several turn loose at once. Just one of the 'perks' of living in the woods, or nearly so.
Hope everyone had a wonderful day!
