Seems like Monday came awful fast this time. The weekend too short
or something. I am glad though in a way, because the warmth is coming with it.
Every day we see 60 degrees will really be a treat here. I sure have missed it.
I remember doing some last minute painting on the porch and
trimming up some bushes last year in October. What a difference
a year makes. Wearing such heavy coats and even hats already
just seems so odd. Seeing the football game on Sunday in the
snow..seemed more like November. Watching the Nascar race
with people bundled up in heavy coats was unbelievable, especially
for North Carolina.
Sunday I spent the day trying to get over a nasty headache
and hoped it wasn’t anything bad coming on. The promised
sun did not show. At 29 degrees overnight the ground was
COVERED with leaves and it seemed the trees just dropped
most of them all at once. Surely the next rain we get will
finish off most of the rest of them. Time to start mowing
them up. It gets warm enough that will be my job..
but this year I will wear a mask! It is just too cold
and I sure don’t need more trouble.
I saw on the news Sunday, that this week some towns
will begin giving out the swine flu shots FREE to school
children. Well that is up to the parents to decide but glad
that some will not have to PAY for them. So many children
who were PERFECTLY healthy have died in less than 4 days
from complications, so hope the children can at least get
protected some. The shots probably DO NOT keep the child
from getting the flu they just keep them from getting a
really bad case of it. I am not a parent, but I sure know I
don’t think I would want to take any chances either.
