evening time...

the end of summer is upon us...

some things look ok, still...

and other things, not so much...

but it all happens in God's time...

we get compliments on our yard all the time...

and we don't do anything special to it...

but we love it...
although we don't have a lot of money to put into it...
it always "happens" every year...

not so nice looking now...

I will dead head them this next weekend...
and finish cutting down the ferns...
getting ready for the leaves to fall...
and to put them in their place for winter to come...


not sure if I posted on Craig's sleep study...
but tis the 29th of this month, so we have a small wait...
other than that, nothing much going on...
its that time of year to go through seasonal clothes and all that fun...
find the fall decor and see what's going up and fall house cleaning as I go...
not an exciting life but its mine...
all mine...
:O)

have weeks and stay thankful for what you have...
and what you don't have...

ferns and the rose garden...

the ferns have loved this summer...

I need to give them away this fall before the frost comes...

this is doing really good...
can't wait for another few years on it...
the growth will be amazing...

we lost another town lady...
only four years older than I am...
we did baseball together many years ago...
they have 2 boys. also, so paths crossed many times in those years...

are you ready for another weekend?
I am...
miss my guys when they are working...
will love when DH retires...

the babies are doing really well and have fat little bellies on them...
eyes are open and mama's are taking good care of them...

its about time for my nap...
got my housework done and been on youtube this morning...

have good days and hope your blessings are many...

it's blooming!

the sweet smell of the autumn clematis has arrived!

and it's drawing all kinds of bees from far and wide...

probably their last main haul before winter comes...
look close and you can see a bumble's butt!

lost an old friend this week...
a lady who was a fixture in this town for many years...will 
and a real fine person...
friend to all...
prayers for her family, please...

hope your week has been a good one...
its been ok here...

Craig saw the NP about sleep apnea and she agrees there's a problem...
and he is to do a sleep study, so waiting on that person to call and set up a time to do it...
and his insurance will cover the machine...
so...
progress...
will keep you posted on this issue...
:O)

happy Labor day weekend...

greetings from the wild side...
got some rain going on...

and a cranky DH trying to get the carpet shampooer unclogged...

and their eyes are beginning to open...
litter 2

litter 2

litter 1

litter 1

litter 1
and their eyes are open, most of the time...

and in the middle of supper Friday evening...
we get a text from Craig...
quarter panel needs fixed...

he dosed off and hit the ditch about 5 miles from home...
DH popped the front back on...
but there are some parts left over...
and it popped the bead on the tires on that side...
but they are fine...
just need aired back up...
so waiting for the body shop to open on Tuesday to get an estimate...
in the meantime...
a friend reached out to me on facebook...
and they had decided to sell her husbands car...
2011 Hyundia Accent...
I think that's how you spell it...
140,000 miles...
great shape...
$2,000...
yeah, well we jumped on that...
got the money coming from the credit union and as soon as that gets here...
we will pick it up...
and there it is...
they let us bring it home and our neighbor is a mechanic...
so he checked it out and gave it a thumbs up...
so, we have a couple of extra cars now...
Craig can drive this while he gets the other one fixed...
and he may take some time getting the money together...
we only carry liability on cars that are paid for...
and we don't have payments on any of them...
so...
God is good...
Craig is fine...
no one else involved...
and we are going to have another vehicle if the others are in the shop...
and the sable...
Craig's other car he got 3 years ago...
is going to a gal he works with...
who has no car...
we decided that the title change and new tags fees would be enough for the car...
we all believe that one good turn deserves to be passed on...
and she is thrilled...
(Craig's been giving her rides to work and taking her home when they work the same days)

so...
hope your weekend is going well...
I need to go google how to unstopped this thing...
:O)
