HOW MUCH TIME
Today as I indulge my laziness I wonder how much time we have left before the trees are completely bare and the last of the white flowering weeds, that Roger allows to grow everywhere, are brown and ugly.
Oh, it's too depressing to think about. And then I wonder how much time I have before the weather gets very unpredictable in the higher elevations of New York. I go from that scenario to wondering who will win the e!ection and the unrest in our country that's likely to happen. Get a grip Susan! As we said in our Bible study group yesterday, God is in control. I do believe that with all my heart but it doesn't stem the flow of anxious moments that flicker in and out of my mind.
One thing that does bring a smile to my face is going outside to enjoy the lovely mild temps we are having. Our weather was rainy and foggy as I drove over the mountain yesterday. I stay mostly at home because it's my safe place. We do have a lot of corvid cases in the Philly area, only an hour and half from us and New Jersey is even closer with the virus seemingly out of control according to the local news. I thought I would be doing a lot of being out and about by now , maybe Lancaster area about two and a half hours awah, but I dare not take a chance. It might be different if Roger were with me but he is very busy with "Pool Closings". He loves working! Yesterday he came home early because he had fallen in a pool. They were putting the cover on a large swimming pool, he stepped back and down he went to the bottom of deep end. His glasses came off but his hat stayed on! He thought he had ruined his cell phone but after some hours in rice it is as good as new, thank goodness!
I have spent a few days really getting serious with the trimming back of the outsjde bushes, hydrangeas, cutting down small trees growing too close to the house and getting rid of Raspberry bushes that are growing where they shouldn't. Our dog yard is looking somewhat neater now. My new toy is a reciprocal saw that I bought when I first arrived home in June. It was way too hot and humid then to work outside. I continue the ivy fight but it's so tightly attached to the house I will have to find a tool that will help with its removal.
Anyway, here are my photos from this week...Unedited...
Fall's Splendor is Fading
