I had my grandson over here this afternoon and today was the chilliest day yet. After playing for a few hours, time to huddle under a quilt and watch some Mickey’s Club House before we went to pick up his sister after school. I do think that Mickey’s Club House was a Very Good Buy since the child has probably watched it at least 20 times over the last year. We don’t have the TV on, ever, but when relaxation time comes around, if needed, then we pull out Mickey. Brent watches it, enthralled, for about 15 minutes, then starts to build blocks or something while paying minimal attention, but I think that he just likes it because it is so familiar.
Hey, it appears that Jugsy is also enjoying Mickey.
Meanwhile, in the afternoon we had a brief period of sleet, yet a pumpkin flower bloomed today in the container.
The weird white lines are the sleet / snow…
It’s been a strange fall. The climax of our fall glory here should have been two weeks ago yet half or more of the trees are still green and have not even turned yet. I have many flowers with buds on them and yet tonight it is supposedly going down to 30 degrees. I went out and picked some of the taller flowers and some marigolds and I imagine that the rest will be gone tomorrow but it’s been quite a long blooming season here this year. I still have all of my annuals in full bloom in the front of the house!
I picked what I thought I could stuff into a Mason Jar…
And then as pretty as they were, I packed up the bouquet and sent it home with my son when he came to pick up HIS kids, to take them home where he and the love of his life live with HER kids too. I think any young lady having 5 kids around the dinner table on any given night needs some fresh flowers! :)
