Roadwork and flag men... And then there was an inordinate amount of traffic on the back roads, I suppose because they were all trying to miss the roadwork, too. I could never find a suitable place to slow down and pull over and take a picture of the golden rod and mallow flowers that are blooming, just now coming into their fullness of beauty. I forgot the camera when I went into the Goodwill but it's just as well. That place was some crowded. I don't believe I've ever seen so many people in there at once before. The clerks couldn't even leave the counter for 30 seconds. I did take a photo of my favorite 'value' of the day:
No, no, not a single shot yet of those treasures I found. It was late and I was flustered when I got in yesterday afternoon. There were groceries to put away and a lunch to prepare for John and then supper for myself and feeding the pets, and then the evening was quite gone. I did take time to slip out to see if the sunset was worthy of attention but it was just an ordinary gradual decrease in light sort of sunset. Nothing at all like the sunset of the night before:
We were promised over the weekend which never came along. We did have some awesome skies though. I had to take these two photos while I was out feeding the pets last weekend.
Of course while the camera was out, everyone wanted their photo op:
I'm not making hard and fast goals for October. I have good reason, I do really. I've been pushing projects for months now. I'm tired of pushing always and never having time for writing or crafting or watching movies ( I won't tell you how long my last Netflix has been here). And John will be home for something like 25 days in October. Yes, really, he will be. I've learned that keeping my plans to a minimum when he's home is best. We want to spend a day at the fair. We thought maybe we'd go see Katie since she's close enough to drive to see and our bank account is a little depleted after brakes and 'oops' bills and renegade mice. We have a tradition of going off to a farther town to shop, in the foothills of our state and sometimes we picnic at the old covered bridge on our way back home. I'd like to do that. We have to tend to Sam's cats and then we'll just spend time at home and rest, too because that is what my man needs more than anything else. Just plain rest. I'll be busy enough keeping up with regular mealtimes and the usual housekeeping, anyway.
There's the moon shining in the window at me. Guess I'd better get up and turn on the porch light for John, draw the drapes and make sure the coffee is hot and fresh. For tonight, I say Goodnight.
