“Well, we’re coming over to rake leaves.”
“No – I can’t have you doing that…”
“Well you just stay inside and we’ll take care of it…”
They were coming over at 2:30 pm. Mortified at the thought of how lazy I was -- and the dog poop that was probably out there--- I went home and raked like a mad woman--- kicking myself as to why I ever felt sorry for myself. For 2 ½ hours I raked and got everything but the very front yard done. They came and laughed at me. "Like we've never seen dog poop" they giggled with their labrador in tow. We finished up in twenty minutes. I just needed that kick in the pants I guess.
The candle cozy was funny to make and was made of muslin coffee dyed after the stitchery was made.
The homestretch is on--- Don will be home in three weeks. I’ve mostly just taken care of myself the months. I need to get busy. A Minor meltdown… Ransom has become arthritic. One we got him on the right medicine he’s rebounding real well. With the active puppy around, he tries to keep up.
Chelsey has been coming home regularly “babysitting” me. I’ve really enjoyed her. Oh—and I’m no longer afraid of the dark….
A warm autumn for the U.P.
