A Little Catch-Up

Can’t believe it has been over a month. But I don’t think this is a case of “time flies when you’re having fun”.

View of the midway. As close as I cared to venture.

Did manage to make it to the fair this year. As part of Best Friend’s birthday present, I bought her a ticket and offered to push her around in the wheelchair. Luckily, she really is a Best Friend and rented a scooter for our tour. I had even gone so far as to enter some of my jams, even though I knew they were too loose to be considered a “winning” jam. Oh well, maybe next year. But we had a wonderful day. Didn’t eat near as much as I had planned. Just a lemonade and Al’s fries. No corn on the cob or turkey leg.

Weather has been less than fall-like. We did manage to have about a week of cooler temps, but today is suppose to be up to 80 degrees. The leaves are changing though. I think they are doing it in spite of the lack of rain. We need several days of good, drizzly weather. I can handle that.

My orchid, despite my lack of care, now has 4 of the 6 blooms open. Of course, this may be the dying gasp of the orchid, but at least it gives me some pleasure. In reading May Sarton’s journals, she was a real advocate of having fresh flowers in the house. She is right, there is something about a few colorful blooms that makes the day better. Another friend had given me a vase stuffed with carnations last week. I am tenderly nursing them along and when they can’t make it any more, I will dry the flowers and put the petals in a jar or bowl.

Oh, off to go by Best Friend’s house and pick up stuff she is laying out for me. Have to do a little grocery shopping for her and Blewgo as she is running a fever. Won’t see her, as I can’t afford to get sick, but will leave packages on porch for each other.

    Memoir sparks students' online reflections
    Katie Oliveri The Enquirer More than 720 miles separate Battle Creek and Long Island, N.Y. But a book and Internet blog have brought Lakeview and Cold Spring Harbor High School students together.
    Just like so many Americans my friend loves the clubs and club music lyrics so he went ahead and built an awesome website about club music lyrics. When he's in high spirit he goes to the site and start reciting all his favorite club music lyrics. Says it's good for the heart. Guess what? I gave it a shot and it works great!
