    Sorry I left you out Charlie.  Hope you feel better and the weather is nicer.  Then again if you are sick, it’s best not to see the sun because you could not go out and enjoy it.  Ok, so that is my way of thinking….!

    One can see that flowering season is almost over….well for some of us.  Nice pictures you shared today.  Here are the last of whatever bloomed in my flower beds.

    Zinnia…not looking all that great, but what a hardy plant.  I’m still wondering where I bought the seeds.

    Grass…..no, not the one you smoke…lol

    One lone Chinese lantern…

    Forgot what these flowers are called, but boy do they ever smell nice…

    I love this delicate looking grass…

    Last of the mums….

    One rose left…

    Good afternoon!  What was supposed to be a rainy day turned out quite nice.  The sun came out and shined down on us all afternoon.

    After a few phone calls I decided to go check out some keyboards and screens for my computer.  The new keyboard that came with my new PC is too flat.  I needed the curved keys so that my fingers don’t hurt.  I picked up a Microsoft one that has the keys I need.  There is nothingwrong with my old screen, but when I gave the old PC with all the attachments to my DD, I kept the screen.  She needs one.  I decided to get a bigger one.  Now my DD can set up the computer for the boys.

    When I came back, had a quick lunch, and out I went to rake and insert the leaves into those large plastic bags.  The city is supposed to come tomorrow to pick them up.  So I am now 10 bags of leaves with 20 still to do.  Then there is the front of the house to clean up.  Grrr…..I hate fall.

    Karen, sounds like you had a great time with your DS.

    Sue, I’ve been in predicaments like that only it was with distant family.  Strange how they don’t know you, but when it’s time for gifts the invitation come.  I agree with you.  It would be hypocritical of you to attend the shower.  On another note, will that make the situation worse if you don’t show up?  Just wondering.

    Have a nice evening!

    Yes, it is very sad.  We are a peaceful country so incidents like that are not common.  However, ISIS did say that we were the first target.  Still not sure who is to blame in this last shooting.  There are crazies out there and everywhere.  We are a small planet.  Too bad we could not all get along.

    So far I haven’t had too many problems with my new 8.1.  The only difficulty is with pictures.  I backed up mine with Google, and for some reason it is giving me trouble.  I guess I have to figure out somehow.  DD formatted everything for me to make it easier so maybe that’s why I can work with 8.1.

    This is only one of a half a dozen troublemakers.  Every time these critters take over my deck, the poor birds are scared away.  Short of trapping them, I don’t know what to do.  Cute in a way though.  I know….I must be getting senile….lol

    There are a few brave ones…

    Thanks Tami for clearing up the definition….lol.  I’m from Quebec you know….lol.  Just teasing.

    Yes, I have the same message on the top of my page.  In defence of the B&B, I do believe that the major changes that were done to this site, certainly have had glitches.  It just seems to me that it’s been going on too long.  I wonder what is the real problem?

    Good morning!  All is not well….the weather is just awful.  More rain in the forecast, gloomy, and very windy.  So the piles of leaves I raked are getting scattered.  I don’t like to pick up wet leaves because they are yucky and cold.

    Sue, seems like the Midwest and north always have this type of weather in October.  Wish the so called global warming would heat up the place.  I might we wishing for something I might regret.  Dry weather  is no fun either.

    Charlene, I tried that chopped up leaves on plants one year.  Boy was I disappointed.  It was so messy in the spring, plus the pieces did not decompose.  I read somewhere that it makes a nice habitat for unwanted insects….then again maybe it’s good.

    Molly, peanut buttter-chocolate cookies work for me, but for mid morning break.  Thanks.

    MD, it’s not ants that try to come inside, it’s those ugly humidity bugs….yuck!

    Rain or not, I might still try to pick up a couple of piles of leaves this morning….that is if I can get off this computer…lol

    Have a nice day!

    I’m confused…..the title mentions LOVELORN…..so I don’t know where the mechanics fit it in……lol, lol, lol.

    If it’s about love…..then can I ask if I love my pets too much?  They are spoiled rotten….(lol)

    Good morning everyone!  Seems like this autumn weather continues.  It’s only 43* this morning.  Rain all day….drizzle, light rain, showers, and more rain…..!  Sounds boring.  It sure is gloomy as well.

    I’m off to a slow start this morning.  I don’t know what it is, but I don’t seem to get ahead in the morning.  After toilet duties for my pets, then their feeding, my breakfast/beds/etc. it’s almost 9.  Now I am on the computer, and for once I will try to make it short.  I really must get back on track.

    Yesterday after raking the backyard…into piles only, I did some laundry.  Then in the evening my best friend came over to do my hair/roots.  She brought a bottle of wine and we continued chatting during the waiting time.  It was fun.

    This afternoon, I have to drive over to my DD to bring all the items I bid on in an auction for a pet rescue organization.  My friend’s future DIL is a volunteer, and they had an auction on Facebook.  Then I have to help my ex with paper work.  Looks like I won’t be able to do much outdoors.  What a bummer considering that the longer I wait to pick up the leaves, the colder it will get.

    Happy Birthday to Larry!

    Leslie, hope your team wins.

    Molly, thanks for the goodies.

    Kathy, wish I could send you some rain.

    Wendy, hope you have a good working day.

    Melissa, sounds like a lot of wood to me.  Don’t know how you do it.

    Donna, hope you and Rick feel better.

    Hope you all have a nice day.
