October flowers. Truthfully I picked them late yesterday afternoon, Sept. 30, when the rain finally stopped. They were all bent over with rain and I was rescuing them.
Today, October 1, has cleared off to be a mostly sunny day. We started the day with breakfast with friends, as usual on Fridays, and it was also the beginning of Tom's 80th birthday pageant. We brought treats - chocolate eclairs, Tom's not-cake choice. They were a hit.
We have two left over, for dessert tonight. :-)
Yesterday I got some appointments made so we can get our medical ducks in a row finally. I have to wait a month for my podiatrist appointment, but at least I finally got my referral renewal so I could make an appointment. I also got appointments for our flu shots for next week and the Covid boosters for the week after. We wanted to wait until after this weekend, in case there are reactions, since we have more celebrating to do.
After breakfast we went for our walk in the neighborhood, since the weather was good. It was fun to see kids on the school playground running outside with their jackets tied around their waists. While it's only 57, it's plenty warm if you are active. I shed my extra layer about then too.
When we got back from our walk we had to check to see if the grass is growing.It is! At least the part Tom planted first.
He is quite pleased, and was even picking fallen leaves off the new sprouts to let them stand up straight and not be smothered. Not sure how long that will last, since falling leaves are beginning to happen.
and the flower garden is sagging, but I did manage to find a few flowers for my table bouquet.
Happy October! I think maybe I'll do some decorating today. I do love pumpkins!
