I’m hanging on to summer even if it is raining a lot lately which i kind of a signal that the seasons are starting to change around these parts.  That and I took a look at my green beans in my garden and they’re starting to play out as well.  It’s too late to plant a second crop so we’ll hafta wait until they’re just plain done before I pull them for the year.  I don’t think it’s gonna be too long from now seeings how a couple of them are turning brown and drying out already.

I think Saturday morning will be a corn stand day to check out their sweet corn before we buy mass quantities for canning.  It’s too bad I don’t have a hobby farm with a few head of calves to feed.  They love the corn husks and cooked cobs.  It’s like candy for them.



I’ve watched this little bunny grow ever since I first laid eyes on it on June 19th.  Yeh, there’s a post and a photo of it for that day.  It’s grown quite a bit and appears very healthy.  It’s funny watching it run around my yard.  It sure is a skittish little thing.  I suppose that’s what has kept it alive so far.  Hopefully it will be one of my visitors to the bunny feed dish over the winter.  It will be nice to look out the back window to watch them feeding.  It would be nice to be able to get a pic of them feeding while I’m at it.

Random Thoughts for Monday Morning


It was nice to go out for a short walk last nite at twilight.  There was a light rain but a nice one none the less.  I liked the orange-gold glow of the street light on wet pavement.  I’ll have to use a better lens next time.  I heard a couple groups of geese flying and one passed overhead not much higher than the rooftops of my neighbor’s houses.  It’s a nice sight but an ominous sign of things to come.

I hopped on the scale this morning and my weight is moving downward once again.  I just gotta keep at it and watch what I eat and how much I eat.

The plan for the week is to fine a sweet corn stand so I can buy around 8 dozen ears of corn.  Canning it for winter will keep me busy, off the streets and out of bars for a while.  I can’t let you think I’m some sorta hooligan like my brother.

My oldest thinks that Dad should have a walking cane when he’s out walking.  I must have given her one helluva look because she came back with a “What???

I’ve been thinking about my two new additions to my yard and how young they are.  I’ve been wondering how I can get u a small brush and tree branch pile by the lilacs and evergreen to maybe provide some extra shelter.  I’ll hafta put some more thought into it.

OK, time to act like I’m working.  Feel free to comment.   🙂
