It's Wednesday afternoon, and I have already forgotten what I did on Monday and Tuesday. :-/
Well, Monday is housecleaning day, and I did a bit of that. I also spent a long time managing photos for my blog post about the cider bee. Blogger does make it trickier to post photos now. It's also laundry day but I had to wait for the new washer to be delivered. It arrived and was installed by 11:30. Out with the old, in with the new, and we put it right to work.It works great, but it is nosier than the old one, so I am closing the laundry room door when it is running.
It rained Monday but it stopped in time to go to the last Sounders home match at the stadium.
The result was a disappointing tie, so now we have one more match before our place in the playoff is determined.
Tuesday I don't remember doing much. I know I was tired. It was election day but we had already voted by mail weeks ago.
I did get outside to take a few more photos of the yard.The Japanese Maple in the back yard is now it the height of its redness. Soon the leaves will fall and all that glorious color will be gone.
In the front yard, the Fern Leaf Full Moon Maple making its last Hurrah! in its orange stage as the inner layer of leaves begin to fall. I am always sad to see the leaves fall, but at least now I can see the Chickadees as they wait their turn to come to the bird feeder.
Looking at my photos I now remember Tuesday. We slept in. I got my hour and a quarter of physical therapy done. It wasn't raining yet so we got outside to take down the golden hop vine on the gate and the tomato plants by the greenhouse.
Almost all of the tender plants are now tucked away under cover or in the greenhouse. That pink glow is Tom's cutting table, where the latest cuttings are taking root. On the right bench, the geranium cuttings are looking good.
This little bonsai is only a couple of yeas old. Tom thinks he want to try reshaping the trunk. It will get put away after the leaves fall.
And then in the afternoon I used some overripe bananas and a half of a pear to make muffins. I added some walnuts on the top. Most went into the freezer but we did sample one. They are delish!
Today, Wednesday, we slept in even longer. Then Tom went to an appointment and I went outside to clean up another bed. Tom helped me finish up when he got home.
After more than two hours of crawling and bending and twisting, I was tired and I'm more than happy to be sitting here at the computer this afternoon. The rain has still held off, but that's enough work for today.
There are still pretty leaves outside my window. My recliner is calling me and it's time to sit and read for a while, that is, if I can keep from falling asleep.
Once I am resigned to having summer over, I really do like Fall.
