GOOD THURSDAY, Sept. 14th MY FRIENDS!

Today is the 61st Birthday of my Husband. He's been my husband, best friend, and partner for 41 years on this journey.
ANYWHO....today is ladies day out. Pick Mom up in a couple hours. Grocery shopping, second hand stores and probably a fruit stand stop! Much cooler today...high yesterday was 88 degrees, today is to be 74 degrees...*shivers* But I like it a wee bit...nice change and it's FRESH air...windows are open, hubby said I was "trying to freeze him out"...LMAO
So...that is my day....how about you all. Any plans? Have a good one, no matter what you get into! ♥

The air is clearer here now too, which feels like such a blessing.  And much cooler, Fall is in the air, for sure.

HI DI HO...we are back home!
It was nice when Mom and I started out today. Temperature was actually 69 degrees. We hit Walmart, then WareMart, then the Dollar store, the pharmacy, and the post office.
Got Mom's all put away and then my own...washed my dishes up...taking hubby for Bday dinner tonight, just me and him...so washed up the breakfast dishes, as I won't have any dinner ones. AND now...it's darker outside, and very windy and I think the temps are dropping. Feels cooler than when we first got home. I have the windows open, and there is a nice fresh breeze blowing!
Sure hope you all are having a great day.

Dale....Thank you...I'll tell him! I've had him listen to your music and seen some of you all's photos...so he knows who I'm talking about! ;)

Roses and Sunshine...it's been actually getting colder here since about Noon....the clouds came in and the winds picked up...and there is an actual 'nip' in the air. AND with all the stores getting in their Mum's and pumpkins...it DOES feel like Fall!

GOOD FRIDAY, Sept.15th MY FRIENDS!

1st...Healing energy going out to LONDON, after this mornings bombing.

So...our dinner out last night was wonderful. Roger decided he wanted Italian, so we went to Romio's Pizza & Pasta, Ontario.
It was really good, and he got a Idaho Ice Cream Potato (look it up) as a FREE Bday Dinner treat.
Now...today I need to mow the lawn...and a cool front came through last night...we went from being 10 above normal temperatures.....to 10 degrees below the norm for our high! Where as yesterday at this time of the morning it was 70, today it's 58 degrees. I had to dig out my slippers...my feet are cold!
I've been having to mow the lawn early in the morning before the heat crept in....now I need to wait for it to warm up! LMAO
ANYWHO....mowing, dead heading flowers and possible mulch dump run are in order today.
HOW about all of you? What is on your schedules today?

GOOD SATURDAY, Sept. 16th MY FRIENDS!

Both Hubby and I slept in today!  Now a nice leisurely cup of coffee, then we go to breakfast and we need to get our flu shots. Later we'll pick up Mom and Dad and take them out to McGrath's Fish house in Boise...we each get to pick our "restaurant" place for our Birthdays and this year, hubby picked McGrath's. That will make Dad very happy....he LOVES fish, Mom...not so much! LOL But she'll live....
It is clear, cool and the winds have died down, but OMG! Yesterday it was in the high 60's when I got up, this morning it is 37 degrees! 37!! Brrrrrrrrr....Hubby is sitting here with his coffee and a throw blanket over his legs! LMAO
ANYWHO...that is our day...I hope you all have a fantastic Saturday.

SORRY I HAVE TO RUN...Hubby is ready to go!

GOOD MONDAY, Sept. 18th MY FRIENDS!

WOW...woke up to pouring rain this morning. I did not want to get up. Nice and cool, sounds of rain...I could have snuggled back under the covers!
So doing laundry today, and I think I will make a pot roast  and a roasted acorn squash for dinner. Good day to have the oven on.
The city crews are going around cleaning out the storm drain grates, but they are just shoveling it into a big pile, and leaving it right where the rain will wash it back onto the gutter! LMAO Not the smartest bunch around!
SO...I might go out and shovel all the leaves in the pile into my mulch can..
Don't know what else I will get into today, but I'm sure there will be something!
You all have a great day, where ever you are.

GOOD TUESDAY, Sept. 19th MY FRIENDS!

Well it rained a LOT yesterday, and last night. Then we had a lightening storm...So anyone knowing me, knows that I am sleep deprived this morning! LOL Yep, got up out of my warm bed....made myself a cup of green tea, grabbed my big fuzzy robe and slippers and went outside and sat under the patio awning...listening to the rain, then watching the lightening. Not much thunder, but lots of lightening. Awwww, so nice. We've not had any good storms all Summer. OH...it SNOWED in our mountains last night and it's 47 degrees here right now...8:10am.
SO ANYWHO...washing up the cat beds and blankets, and have bathrooms to clean today. Oh and Mom called, wanted me to come over and take some nice cabbage she had, and some books. So I took over some ripe tomatoes, and some photos she wanted to send to my Aunt. Mom and Dad are getting a new pellet stove installed today. That will be so nice...
Other than that...not sure. Will wait and see what comes up.
Hope you all have a great day...

GOOD WEDNESDAY, Sept.20th my Friends!

Still very overcast and cloudy and windy. More rain on the way. Not sure what today will bring. I don't even have to cook dinner. We have to take the RV over to have it Winterized, so we'll leave just before 5pm and get it there, leave it over night and pick it up Thurs. or Friday. But...I get dinner out....:)  So...I might work on my photos and photo sites. Have not had time to do that all Summer! LOL
Hope you all have a great day...

WHOA! It just got really dark and started pouring! AND the irrigation is just out there watering away! LMAO It's on a day, and hour timer...

GOOD FRIDAY, Sept. 22nd MY FRIENDS!
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL

Today, at 11:30 hubby and I will pick Mom and Dad up and take them to a NEW doctor, a Pain Specialist in Caldwell, bout 20 miles or so away...one way. I have had the injection treatments and they do sort of work, but Dad's never had them. So maybe this new doc can offer Dad some pain relief. *fingers crossed* Today will be only the assessment. But hubby is driving this first time to get me used to the area, then when we go back for whatever treatment, I can just take them.
ANYWHO...I'm sure this will take a good chunk out of the day...but that is okay too. It's dark and raining out, so I would not have mowed the lawn today anyway.
Sure hope you all have a truly wonderful day.

We received the first noticeable snow of the year on our mountain tops today.
Rain in the valleys.
My band has a gig tonight so I hope the rain stops before we have to unload the sound equipment from the trailer and take it inside the building.
Busy day as I also had to run parts to my mechanic so he could do some work on my truck.
He does the work out of his home and is very affordable, so running parts is well worth doing.

GOOD SUNDAY, Sept.24th MY FRIENDS!
 
Hubby and I took off yesterday after our Feral cats delivery of donations and headed to Boise. Nothing specific....kicked some new car tires, had dinner out! LOL Not ready to buy one, but he wanted to see what was out there, been a while since we did that. It was a gorgeous day to be outside walking!
Another gorgeous Fall day today. High about 70 degrees, low was 45 degrees. Sun is shining brightly and there is very little smoke in the air, so the sky is actually blue, not gray. Yesterday when we were driving, we can see a long ways to the Sawtooth mountains, and they were covered in SNOW! It does look pretty .....UP THERE!
ANYWHO...so after hubby works till noon, we will clean the house and 'might' mow the lawn. If not, I will do that tomorrow...then head to the dump with Mom and Dad tomorrow.
SO...that is my day...Hope whatever you have planned makes your day fun..

Dale....I hate the thought of Winter coming....I really do!
Oh that is so nice to have a mechanic who can give you a fair price....hang on to him! LOL
Hope you survived your gig, nice and dry!

GOOD MONDAY, Sept. 25th MY FRIENDS!
   Had a lovely weekend, just to ourselves. Did not do anything spectacular, but get out a bit and get some fresh air. AND fresh it is! Temps are in the 70's, slight breeze...but bright sunshine and clear blue skies. No trace of smoke from the wildfires!
I will be mowing the lawn, late morning or early afternoon...once the dew gets off the blades of grass. Then Mom and Dad will pick me up in the truck, and we'll take all our trimmings to the dump.
Other than laundry...(it is Monday, after all)...I think that is all I will be doing today.
Hope you all have a bright and shiny day as well.

GOOD TUESDAY, Sept.26th MY FRIENDS!

Running late this morning. Had a rough night sleeping. Finally fell asleep after 1am. Of course I then slept in late! :)
Not much going on today, nice....beautiful, sunny day! Temps to be around 70 degrees. Left the bedroom window open a wee bit last night....was 40 degrees outside this morning, so a tad bit cool in the room! LOL But that made me not want to get up even more!
ANYWHO....Mom called wanted to know if we would come have dinner with them tonight. She bought a large package of spareribs and Dad said he was NOT eating those for 4 days! LMAO
Hope you all have a great Tuesday!

GOOD WEDNESDAY, Sept.27th MY FRIENDS!
 
Another truly gorgeous Fall day! Temps going to be around 75 degrees....no rain in sight and wee light breeze!
Not a lot to do today....it's my only day of the week with absolutely nothing on my schedule! Guess I'll have to work on my photo sights. ANYWHO...I do hope you all have a wonderful day as well.
 **May the blessing of light be on you**

GOOD FRIDAY, Sept.29th MY FRIENDS!

So last night hubby and I got the RV to the shop....then hubby had his eye appointment, his eyes were fairly good still. Then we went to Meridian to have dinner....and pick up 4 of the Ontario Feral cats (thought it was only 2, but it was 4 total...two sets of siblings) that were in the PetSmart there, they were not doing well, and since we were going to be there anyway, I just grabbed two carriers and brought them back here. Those wonderful folks are so crazy busy....even more so this last week getting ready for today and tomorrows Fat Cat Yard Sale...they were still WORKING at 7:30PM when we got back!!
SO TODAY....in about an hour or so, I am picking up both Mom and Dad to take them to the Fat Cat yard sale, then they want me to take them to another Farmers market a little further out.
THEN....I should be back on line. I hope you all have a truly wonderful day!

GOOD SATURDAY, Sept.30th MY FRIENDS!

ANOTHER RUN THROUGH...Sorry...I should be able to be here a lot more on MONDAY

Well the rain moved in over night. Not heavy but rain...I have no idea what today will bring. Hubby is taking the day off work, so I will not be here long. I know we do have to pick up the RV and bring it home. Today feels like Fall....cool and overcast but fresh, with anticipation in the air....
I do hope you all have a wonderful day.

CatCevennes....HI!

LMAO Oh you could say that.....at least Hubby thinks that is what I do.  Out of all my cats, I've had my whole life.....(close to 30)...only 2 have I ever gone to a shelter and picked out. And even then, I chose "kill shelters", because I knew I needed to save at least one life from them.....but yes. All my cats are strays, ferals or dumped cats...♥
