Like many of you, I have been madly ripping out my garden (and a long way from being finished). I still have potatoes, a few pie pumpkins, popcorn and a small bit of pinto beans to harvest. It's been such a blessing this year.
Youngest looked at my fingernails and said, "Oh my Mom, I need to paint these."
Silly girl. Dirt is my current nail color.
I'm still getting a few last glady blooms around the front porch, and enjoying them. I have a box of tulip bulbs that need planted soon, for spring blooms. I'll be squeezing that into my fall work schedule.
It rained pretty hard during the night so it'll be too wet to work in the garden. Not sure yet about splitting wood, but Hubby is still working on his truck repair too. To be honest, after I watched the sunrise, the sky looks like we could get more rain today.
As far as job searching goes, most everything is done online anymore. It takes about 1 hour to finish one particular application. No wonder my kids complained about job searching. You can't just fill out an application, attach your resume, and hand it to a person. It's kind of frustrating.
Last night three of us started a game of cards on the front porch. We ended up playing with a camping lantern, until the rain and wind arrived, blowing are cars around. We did have a good time anyway.
