Who ever started that saying. I am ready for cooler days. Gee Whiz this summer has been too hot. I always dread summers. But I think most everyone has the same complaint. It's just too hot. When the temps are almost 100 and the humidity is almost 100, it doesn't make me a happy camper. No I don't camp.
This picture was taken at our Humane Society. Kinds cute, I thought. What was I doing there? Not to get a dog but looking for one for my friend Doodle and looking for another friend's lost dog.
We just returned from a week trip to Colorado. We went to take care of our Fisherboy and his sister while Mom started a new counseling job and a new school. Our granddaughter was in Drama Camp for two weeks. We got to see her in Lion King twice. The weather was warm but without the humidity, I could for the first time tell a big difference that plays. Hubby went as well and that made it a lot better.
We have been home only a few days now. Everything seems topsy turvy as it usually does on a return home.
This is an earlier picture. This was a memorial for all Ohio soldiers that have lost their lives in the Gulf War til the present time. It was a beautiful site but a heart breaking one as well.
You can't tell from this picture but my geraniums are huge. I guess I know what to plant here in that big iron kettle. I still have color in the flower beds. Wondering if I will have mums too.
We didn't have rain for a really long time. We have had tons lately. I love every rain drop. And the pond is really full. I know the south is having floods and the west fires, I pray for everyone's safety.
I don't have a new picture of the baby. She finally made it back to her birth weight and now weighs 6 lbs. She was acutally just due this week. They are having problems getting her on a formula that she can handle. Yes, breast feeding would be an answer but trust me this is better for them right now. They are doing well with her. I would love to be able to spend some one on one time with her and do a photo shoot, but there will be time for that later.
I am not happy that I can't post from my I pad or I phone. I do love having them if I could just figure how to transfer pictures. I have some great pics to share but right now I can't.
Larry hasn't been at work for two weeks. He went with the boss for a meeting but that's it. He is having a bit of trouble adjusting but each day I think he enjoys more.
We went to K. Bug's tennis match last night. She did really well. She used to apologize every time she scored to the opposite team, hah.
They have all started back to school this week. We now have one in 1st, 2nd, 3 in 5th, one in 6th and another in 8th.
Other news, I have opened an etsy shop. You can find me at Grammy Petals on Etsy. I am slowly adding listings. I had my first sale just a couple of days after I posted. It says I have had the shop since 2010 and I have. but never posted any listings. A friend wanted me to sell on Ruby Lane. Not sure I am ready for that. She does really well and gets great prices for things. I will try Etsy for awhile. I still have my little retail space but it has been slow this summer.
Well, that's it for now. You can catch me on Instagram as well. Debby Messner there, really original, I know.
Hugs and stay cool
Oh I forgot. The clowns are coming this week-end for American Clown Academy. Fun, Fun, Fun.
