MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 284 – OCTOBER 11, 2013

MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR FRIDAY, DAY 284 OF 2013: Well, I woke up at a quarter to eight this morning with a stuffy nose that soon blossomed into a sneezey, wheezy runny nose.  I knew that I eventually would have to pay for my too cool for comfort outing last weekend. I definitely can’t blame it on lounging around in PJs all day yesterday. And I knew that  I couldn’t use it as an excuse for spending another day loafing around the house.  I wrote the checks for the monthly bills yesterday, and I wanted to get them to the post office today. I also had to do some grocery shopping. So I took the advantage of getting up early to do some early bird shopping for a change.

But on my way to my bus stop, I had to stop to visit the now fall front garden.  We had a great growing season this summer.  And the rose bushes and the Rose of Sharon shrubs are all about six feet tall.  The Rose of Sharon are in full seed pod form, and from the number of pods on each branch the busy bees really did their work this summer.

Any one want any seeds? DSCF0436 The Rose of Shanon is an easily grown from seed member of the hibiscus family and they survive cold winters and hot summers.

BUT BACK TO SHOPPING:

Along with the run of the mill pantry shopping I also got myself something special.

I’m partial to dark chocolate, and I bought a variety pack of treats that will be rationed from now to Christmas. The Chili Chocolate is out of this world.

I also bought some Pumpkin Spice coffee.  Another fav!

When I got home from shopping, I let Renee out into the yard and discovered that when I wasn’t looking she had carried another one of her toys out into the yard to become a yard toy. She does this when she gets bored with the toys she has in the yard.DSCF1139
