We have had a couple of lovely warm fall days and today looks like more of the same. I have a couple of windows open and the fresh air is welcome. Some years ago the city planted some small trees downtown. I noticed that some in my block have already dropped their leaves, but the one outside my window is a brilliant yellow. I expect that tree will be bare before long. Winter isn't all that far off.
I have been busy clearing off one of the shelving units in my living room, getting it emptied so Duane can drag it home. He helped yesterday by moving cases of bottled water and 25 lb. sacks of sugar and flour. To make space on the other unit for the water, sugar and flour, I moved a tub and a couple of laundry baskets full of fabric, yarn and quilting supplies. I am about halfway finished sorting through, organizing as I go so I can actually find what I need when I need it. So far I haven't tossed anything. I am a quilter. We keep even the smallest of scraps of fabric because they might come in handy for another quilt. That's just the way it is. Sigh.
When I planted my windowsill garden some time back, all the plants died off. Except for the green bell peppers. They are still flourishing in my kitchen windowsill. They have been blooming like crazy and I actually have one pepper that is about as big around as a quarter. There may be more, but so far they are too small to be sure. Anyway, the pot of pepper plants is pretty, so even if I don't get more peppers, it is alright.
My granddaughter, Boston, emailed me this. Boston is on the left and I believe her dance instructor is on the right.
Then she called me to tell me about it. It is an honor for her to participate in this show. Years past in dance competitions she nearly always had a tap solo. She loves what she does and is really good at it. I hear that she did a good job dancing in the show. She also told me it had been a busy week. She found out she was to be inducted into the National Honor Society. I am so proud of this girl. But the best part for me was that she made the effort to call her Grandma to let me know what was going on in her life. I just love that kid to pieces.
That's pretty much all of the excitement here in my little 'Home Sweet
Apartment.' The days go by, stuff gets done and now and then one of my grands makes me smile. It really doesn't get much better than that.
