A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Sunday Thoughts.

Out early to cut down the asters. I'm back inside after doing just a few chores. Brrrrr....it's cold out there. Not knowing if we will have warm weather again...I am not taking any chances.I'll be out on sunny days to finish up.This is how the asters looked early on, but now they are brown and ready to be cut down. I have them in several places in the yard...so my lawn cart will be full .....again;
I used the hand truck to bring the birdbath into the garage for the winter. It was full of ice and leaves. Later on I'll clean it up with a bleach solution. The little birds were watching from the Ash tree. They will have to go elsewhere for water to drink. There's a pond in the back...so they will have to fly a little distance to get water now. 
My mums aren't as pretty as they were in past years. Not quite as vibrant. In looking around the neighborhood, I think that I need a pop of color mixed in. My colors are mostly in the lavender, purple, rose colors. Maybe a pop of yellow would be nice. 
Joe's surgery is scheduled for the day after Christmas. I guess our Christmas will be here at home and getting ready to go. What a disappointment. He's been in pain for 10 weeks and this is the first date that the Dr. would be available. He could have done it a couple of days before Christmas, but Joe figured after would be better. Well, as I said just the other day....we have to ease into things and just go with the flow. I didn't expect the water to be so choppy though.

I got my amaryllis bulb just yesterday in the mail. It is the biggest bulb that I have ever had. I think that I better plant it now...so we can enjoy it during Christmas. They take sometimes 8 weeks, but I hope that this one doesn't take that long. I'd hate to miss it's blooming. 
Our tree in front is just about bare...and the maple is full of red color.So pretty right now.
Well, next on my agenda is to find out where they are giving flu shots. I missed out in early Oct. because of my cold. I sure want to get one, since I'll be in and out of Dr. offices and the hospital. 
That's about it...not really in the mood to write anymore...just want to get outside stuff done.

You always make me feel guilty because I am always behind you in chores in the garden. So much to do and seems that I don't have enough time for it all.

You are so busy, Balisha! I have also been working in fits and starts to close my yard. It's sad but truthfully I am generally happy to not have both yard and house to care for. It makes for a lot of extra work!
Sorry to read your husband's surgery is so far out. That has to be frustrating.

We just finished up the last of our garden chores (well, except for all the raking!) today, too. It was a beautiful sunny day here and when hubby got home from work, we emptied the last two plant containers. Sorry to hear your husband has to have surgery - and that you have to wait another two months. That seems like a long time to wait when someone needs surgery.

Good thoughts to your husband for his surgery (so hard to have to wait so long!)
Here the drugstores and even some groceries give flu shots if you can't get in to see your physician!

Very windy the last two days here which makes it even colder, so I held off on further yardwork over the weekend. I had a few hangers-on after the last few hard frosts so I have not cut any flowers down yet...just working on bush trimming so far.

I am sorry to hear that he has to wait that long for the surgery...far better to have it WAY before Christmas and feeling better by then.

Joe's having a hip replacement and the Dr, is one who does an anterior approach... that cuts down on pain and recovery time.He uses a special surgical table so he can have better access to the hip. It is only at one hospital.So, if the patient can wait...it's worth waiting for. In the meantime Joe is supposed to swim and lose some weight.

You are always so busy, Balisha! I hope Joe's surgery goes well. You take care of yourself too.
