The little maple in the woods.
Waiting in the Drs. waiting room for Joe. Hoping for good news and maybe no surgery.
Noticing the drab, drab office....all in grays and off whites and wondering why....why are people afraid of color?
No news another Dr to see. This has gone on for a couple of months...do they realize people are in pain?
Out for dinner on the way home. Woman behind us complaining all the time...friendly waiter trying to appease her. She spoke to manager about poor service. I couldn't let them think it was the waiter's fault. I went to the manager and told him about the wonderful service we were having with same waiter. Waiter smiled.
Coming home and seeing the beauty all around. Trees of crimson and yellow orange on all sides of the road. Soon the trees will be bare...I love bare trees against a snowy background. I guess I love all seasons of trees.
Pulling into drive....noticing that my work is just about finished. Just the mums are blooming. Leaving the front until the very end. Leaves whip by the windshield...from our newish maple tree. I remember when I bought it for Joe...he said that we are too old to plant trees. Just 3 yrs. ago ...and you should see how the tree has grown. Love watching saplings grow.
Bulbs to plant....where is that little chipmunk scamp? Hope he doesn't know I am planting them. Tasty snack for him.
Looking forward to fall baking. Pumpkin breads and cranberry....with butter or cream cheese or just plain. Yum!
Laundered lightweight down comforter and put away for next year. Made the bed with winter down...no flannel sheets yet.
Heat on in the house...feels nice in early morning.
Planning meals for when Joe might be hospitalized...freezer meals to pull out when I am busy.
Talked to kids yesterday. Some travel plans include trip to Florida next weekend ...one will travel to California.
Cousin Judy on my mind. She's finished with chemo and will get ready for transplant soon. She's the top of my prayer list. She has a wonderful attitude and if that counts for anything...she will get through this.
Sun disappearing behind some dark clouds...bulb planting will have to wait. I'm tired and want to rest.
TV and hot tea are waiting.
