There's A Hint Of Fall In The Air

August 18, 2019

Good morning.  Tis another really lovely day here in my little part of New England.  The sun is shining and there's a teeny tiny breeze.  Soon though, temps will be up in the low nineties. 

Last evening, I borrowed a very interesting image from the web to share here.  How quickly time passes by.  Do you realize that last night was the last time we will see the sun set after 8 p,m, until April 28, 2020?    I guess this means that there's a hint of Fall in the air.

Well, it's been a busy two days here.  Friday I went to have my labs done.  Hopefully, I should be getting the results by Monday or Tuesday.  On the way home, Dee and I stopped by WaalMart to pick up my meds and a few groceries.  One med had not been called in, and after I got home, I found that another one of my meds was written up wrong.  (By the doctor's office)  I placed a call to the doctor's office to let them know and express my frustration at how little attention they pay to my meds.  I will call them back tomorrow to make sure things have been taken care of.

Friday evening, I called my cousin Dickie, whom I haven't seen in years.  Unfortunately, when I called, he was already tucked into bed for the night.  I told him I would call him the next day.  Sad to say, when I checked on FaceBook yesterday, I found that he was in the hospital.  Oh no!  It seems that he fell and broke a couple ribs.  Another cousin had found out about it and had gone to the hospital to visit him.  (and posted this photo on FaceBook)

I'll have to check with another cousin to find out how long he will be in the hospital so that maybe I can go to visit with him. 

Yesterday, Pogo and I got to go visit with my cousin Ellen, Dickie's sister.  Deanne dropped us off, and went to do her errands while we visited.  I also got to meet another cousin's wife, Linda, who was here visiting with Ellen.  She's from Illinois, and I've never met her in person.  Pogo and I had a wonderful visit.  Ellen has two cats, and Pogo was busy trying to find them to see if maybe they wanted to be friends.  He wasn't very successful.

I have to show you my gorgeous orange roses that Deanne brought me when she picked me up.  This is my favorite color, and oh my they are simply gorgeous! 

When we got home, I took photos of another beautiful rose that has blossomed in my garden.  Gosh, I'm surrounded by all sorts of beauty! 

Last evening, I cooked up a batch of fresh summer squash and had that with some grilled chicken (thank you Deanne for the yummy chicken).  It's been a while since I've had summer squash and I have to admit that I ate the whole batch. Yum! Yum!  Folks, I think I'm going to enjoy my new cooktop.  I can cook different things in a wink.

This morning, I've been watching Shop LC on TV.  The bargains have been super.  I did call in to order a bag of Shungite.  I tried to order this the last time they had it but I did not get through in time before it sold out. 

Shungite is one of the only known natural materials known to contain fullerenes, which are powerful anti-oxidants.  The energy embodied within this ancient stone is said to absorb and eliminate anything that is a health hazard to human life, and it has active metaphysical properties with strong healing powers.  Shungite comes from a mine in Russia.  I will be keeping my bag of Shungite close by me. 

Today is Sunday, yet the mailman just came by to deliver a package to me.  Folks, you just can't beat ordering via the internet (mostly Amazon).  The package contains gift cards that I ordered for birthday gifts for a couple of my great grandchildren. 

Now I think I'll do a bit of blog reading before I go looking for some mischief to get into.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Very frustrating about your prescriptions being called in incorrectly. It happens to us, too. I'm sorry about your cousin; broken ribs are so painful.
Your rose bush and also the orange roses from Deanne are gorgeous.
Glad you and Pogo enjoyed visiting and how nice to have grilled chicken to go with your squash.
Wishing you a delightful afternoon.

So sorry to hear about your cousin Dickie. I am wishing him a speedy recovery. Sad to say but we don't have to fall hard to break something at our old age. I think our bones are more brittle.

We are still rather hot here and I am not sad at all about the sun going down earlier. (lol) It seem to be hot here all night long. It make you think the sun is still shining. I do see a little of fall in the tree leaves. I notice my plum tree leaves are beginning to turn brown. I was thinking it was from the heat but once you think about it, fall is just around the corner. I am still watering my flowers and trees because on my side of town is still dry. It has been raining for a few days on the South side but not for us here on the north side. It's weird but the Houston area is very large and wide spread. Hopefully we can get some rain here soon.

You have the most gorgeous roses. I need more blooms in my yard, so when it start getting cooler I am going to do more roses and blooming shrubs for the coming year. The heat has taken over the few blooms that I have and made them look dead. It's so hot and that makes it hard to grow anything. I should start tillering my garden soon for fall veggie planting. I am thinking about making it smaller because some of the beds won't be used. I did make it too big and it make you not want to do anything to it. Have a great Sunday.

Hi Edna, wow you have been busy! Your roses are all beautiful, I would love to plant a few rose bushes when we get some back yard landscaping done next spring.

the Sun sets here tonight in Reno at 7:51 pm. getting earlier and earlier, but I am ready for Fall.

hoping your cousin heals quickly and out of the hospital soon.

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

Those roses are so pretty. I just love the color of the ones Deeann got for you. Gosh you have been super special lately.

I am so very sorry to hear that your cousin Dickie fell and broke his ribs. Falls can be so scary but it is nice that he is in the hospital so they can manage his pain. I love the smile on his face. Even with broke ribs, he looks jolly. I am wishing him a speedy recovery and hopefully you will be able to visit him soon.

It is still hot here. No rain in sight for us but I am glad that your having a nice breeze. We just don't want you jumping straight from summer to winter!

Give Pogo love. I am off to blog. I don't have a lot to say so it will not take long lol. Hugs my friend and I will call you sometime Monday. Or you call me. xxx Beth
