Still I haven't been feeling inspired to write much lately, n work is still too taxing. Been over-sore after machine breakdowns all week have given me new ways to kill my back n use up more energy I didn't know I had. Just very relieved to reach free time this week. Got the hot water bottles working out some arm n shoulder kinks too.
TG the current hurricane, Mathew, will probably miss my area, but feel bad for all the folks around Florida, Georgia, n The Carolinas who will probably not avoid the storm. I keep my fingers crossed for you. May you not flood, lose power, or cell service.
Not doing much besides walking outside this week.
Almost everything in the garden except 5 small carrots n 3 small green tomatoes are toast. Out back something ate all my impatiens... In front tho my flowers are doing ok.
This week I heard that the local turkeys (previously featured on ESR)
jumped the neighbors fence n ate everything in his garden. He had thought it was a rodent issue until he saw them doing it.
That may be where all my plants not protected under chicken wire out back went. Probably the drought has wild animals doing unusual foraging this year. Still awaiting to see if we get any good tree color or not. The vines are just starting to turn slightly this week.
Those at least should get pretty. In case there aren't good leaves for pics I sprung a buck at the Dollar Tree for a pack of weird plastic ones to play with. Maybe time later for those.
Some folks are so gung-ho on fall decs they are all set-up for the end of the month already. I was gonna save these, but guess I'll do it early too, in case the end of the month gets away from me again.
Have some fun with orange out there!
