Good grief,  it sure has been a busy August and not much time to update here. Traveling to see the new young member of the family and then preparing for another move. I find myself wondering if I will remember what box things are in this time around. This move will take me out-of-town and into another place. Not quite sure where it will be, but it will be a new start. More on that when I know more.

We are getting a real break from the heat in our area..not sure how long it will last but I could swear I heard the weatherman say that our really high heat is over now. About time I say!! The local swimming pond has pretty empty lately due to the cool weather,but it sure looks serene for just sitting and enjoying some time off.

I ventured out to the suburbs to the vegetable market and they were so far behind there was NO TOMATOES to be had . She told us at least two more weeks, and they were late coming on the vines.Hard to believe because everyone else has them already. This place does NOT irrigate so they had a long time without rain. THAT means we  have them fresh until frost kills them this year. Looking forward to that.  I sure do miss my plants this year. Nothing like picking your own right out your back door.Takes room to have them and right now I don’t have that. Road crews finally finished the paving of a major street near my apt and the traffic has been crazy. Those guys start at daybreak and there is NO sleeping in around here so I have been on a crazy schedule lately. I have managed to see some of my favorite late night shows in re runs though like American Pickers(History channel) and Storage Wars. I love the way those guys crawl over every inch of someone’s  place looking for something antique to dicker over. I know I sure would NOT want to see some of the dirt and critters they find along the way either! Storage Wars (A&E) is fun, people bid on what they find in storage spaces that have been put up for sale. Makes me look at my storage space a whole new way too. What would they think if they looked into mine? Hmmm.. one man’s junk is another man’s treasure I guess.  Well not much more happening from around here.  Hope you all are savoring all the rest of our summer moments you can!

  1. Hey Carol, good luck with your move. Can’t wait to see where you move to! I’m still trying to get over my move, and I just moved around the corner in my apartment building! Take care, and I hope your cool weather continues.

  2. I love storage wars and watch it all the time. They find some pretty cool things in some of them. I sure hope you find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when you finally get to where life is leading you! You certainly deserve it that’s for sure. Until then take good care ok.
