The time lapse photography was magnificent...watching seeds fall & germinate, vines begin to grow and climb in the dense forest. Or a tree in Australia that grows in salt water. Who knew?
Awe inspiring. That's what it was.
Last week's cool temperatures are gone and today its sunny and glorious outside. Too late. We've already begun moving the big pots of outdoor plants inside. The biggest, heaviest of them is still on the handtruck, sitting in the middle of my front porch. Need to find a strong body to help get it inside tonight. Maybe the plumber due at 5:30 could be persuaded since I'm not sure he can squeeze past it anyway.
Where has the time gone? Did I really move out of that childhood home 40 years ago? Sure did. And yet I can remember it like yesterday. The year I fell in love with yellow and orange and Robert Wagner played Al Mundy on It Takes A Thief. I had his picture on my wall, next to a huge sombrero.
Might be time to cruise back by the hood and see what's changed since my last drive by. Good Grief, my drive by...makes me sound like a gangsta. Have mercy.
I digress. You should check for a rerun of that fabulous nature segment. And stick around for the short with the big mic. No Impact Man was less worthy so you have my permission to check out when he comes on, or at least after a few minutes. Giving up toilet tissue and electricity was not a good thing, Martha, and you don't need to be witness to it.

Did I tell you I took my parents to the beach last weekend? The weatherman predicted cold and rain, and he was wrong, wrong, wrong. We had sunshine and warm, lovely days. Of course we stayed inside for 3 days playing dominoes, so it hardly mattered. But we did have hot chocolate, which makes me think of Fall.
I just need everything to last til it's time to start with the holiday decorations. I can almost hear the jingle of bells in the background, can't you?
