This witch weathervane sits on top of my garage. She oversees everything happening in my gardens.
She keeps and eye on my pumpkins.
And she watches the squirrels eat the corn on the stalks.
The pool was closed today. The end of another summer....yahoo!!!!
Isn't this a beauty?
Bittersweet is another favorite of mine.
The dogwood berries are bursting their seams.
Ahhhhh.......Indian corn. Look at those colors. It almost does not look real.
My kind of hood ornament.
The reason the pool was just closed.
The mums have all bloomed.
These are my favorite flowers.
Another beauty. The weather is cool. The day is gray. It puts me in the mood for.......
Shepard's pies and........
a nice piece of.......
gingerbread cake with lemon icing!
*Halloween memories: I remember waiting for what seemed like hours to leave the house to trick or treat. My costumes were almost always the kind with the plastic masks. Those masks were comfortable for maybe 5 minutes and then your breath started condensing on the plastic which made your face wet and the elastic band would dig into the back of your head and get caught in your hair. None of this slowed me down much though.
Teddy Update: Teddy has Lyme disease. And I diagnosed it. Oh boy......I can't tell you how frustrating this has been. Six different doctors saw her and no one connected the symptoms. One vet ran the test but it came out negative. It doesn't show up in her blood work because she is in the acute phase. The main symptoms of Lyme disease are high temps, lameness and lethargy, all of which she has. The super duper vet hospital, state of the art and all that did not even run the Lyme disease test on the blood they took because she is on Frontline. Guess what? Dogs get Lyme disease even when you use Frontline. So, now we are on a two week course of antibiotics and crossing our fingers that this does not become chronic. Thank you all again for all of your very nice well wishes for her.
