September

I think September is my favorite month. Fall is in the air, even though here in California it still gets quite hot. But the mornings are cooler and the evenings cool down quickly.  The light is changing and the angle of the sun is different.  Of course, it’s my birthday month too.

The garden is winding down and soon we will plant( oh, wait that’s my daughter who will) fall vegetables. I think I saw she had started broccoli and cabbage. We are definitely watering less so hopefully, the water bill goes down. It’s at its highest in August at $150.  Our water is from the Meadow Vista Water agency so our monthly bill never goes below $70 as there are tons of fees.

These are the hydrangeas I got from Costco. Such a great price for this bunch $9.99. So I read the trick to keeping them from wilting which hydrangeas are known for doing, you pour boiling water over the cut on the bottom. I was skeptical but it really did work!

These are 3 days old and still, look good.

Today we are driving the ‘old ‘van into town to drop the Goodwill stuff off. They are only taking donations from 10 am -3pm. Last time I was in line for about 30 minutes. We have a digital piano to drop off so B will come and help with that. The workers there won’t help unload due to COVID rules.

Last night we had homemade fettuccine alfredo with some shrimp on the side. It is a very easy dinner as the alfredo sauce is heavy cream and parmesan and freshly ground pepper. Quite fattening and yummy. ahem…

It looks like I put in the same picture twice, I can’t tell.???:)

Tonight I think we’re going to be adventuresome and get tacos out at Taco Tree. We’ll see if it happens. Often by 4 pm I just decide to make my own.

I ordered some new t-shirts from Bombas.  They are quite nice and a Pima cotton so quite soft. Usually, I’m an Old Navy T-shirt person but I wanted a better quality t-shirt this time.  It was a 3 pack for $97 and then I got 20% off so reasonable. I’ll just have to see if the way I wear t-shirts out whether the extra expense will be worth it. One very cool thing is Bombas is a socially conscious company and for every item bought one is donated to a shelter or other group that helps those in need. So, I really like that and wanted to support it.

Being off Facebook has been really easy for me. I’m not sure why but I’ve only gone a few times to check on what a neighbor had posted and then my sister’s daughter. Maybe I was just done with it.

Now I am still reading the Washington post which I have a subscription to. I’m okay with that although the Trump stuff ie: White supremacy, is sometimes more than I can handle.  It’s just shared to figure how or why they think that way. And seeing those tRump trucks with American flags and tRump flags really burns me up. What’s that about? Do they think we ( liberal Democrats) don’t respect the flag? Honestly, I just don’t get it. And with him heading to Wisconsin where he’s only going to create more problems is ridiculous.  He wants to incite the violence.

Well, on that cheery note, I’m off to get ready.

  1. What a category — trump shit. Let’s hope you can delete that one soon. By the way, you look great! I love the jeans and Birkies.

    • Ha Ha, I know let’s hope. I started wearing Birkenstock in college at U of Arizona in 1970. Back then I had ‘original’ ones, the Arizona. Now I have to wear soft sole ones since the others aren’t supportive enough. Funny story. When my mother died in 1978, I flew back to NY, in April( I think). I wore birkies and didn’t bring any other shoes. Well, I step out of LaGuardia airport and it’s snowing. Lots of snow. We lived about 1 1/2 hr from the city and all the time I was visiting my mother at West Point Hospital I had to endure walking in the snow with my Birkies. Oh well, memories….
