Hello y'all! Fall has finally arrived in Texas (at least for the weekend) Thursday morning we woke to temperatures below 70 for the first time in ages...It was 68, I turned off the AC and opened windows to put some fresh air in this shut up house...the fur babies loved it! So did I, got to clean out the space between the window and the screens of the dust, dirt and dead flies....and fur balls dust bunnies all got rounded up too YUCK! We woke to 64 on Friday morning and this morning it was 56....Whoopee!!! But, all good things will begin to fade away as the temps will be on the rise again next week, one more day to enjoy the nice crispness! Still no rain in sight, but I did get out and water my plants really well and gave them some miracle grow....just look how pretty they are:
My bad with having the windows open and being outside too much...the Ragweed and Tree pollen count was astronomical and yep, you guessed it...ALLERGIES....attacking me and causing my asthma to wake up. I am wheezing like bagpipes without any instrument and coughing a lot. I haven't had an attack in years, so all my inhalers are outdated and it's the weekend....but I shut all the windows and taking my Claritin and trying to stay calm (not drinking anything really cold, no eggs, no bananas, no milk products, etc) until I can see the Dr. on Monday! It's a shame too as the weekend temperatures have been perfect....oh, well, it will return eventually and hopefully the Ragweed will recede some as well.
Today, my sister Kathy and her hubby Jim have been married for 45 years! I called to wish them Happy Anniversary and she says she is not feeling well again. I feel for her, I know the COPD really bothers here this time of the year, but she was waiting for Jason, Christina and the grand kids to show up for dinner and that will cheer her a bit I am sure. She sent me the cutest video of Jayson (who turned 4 last Sunday) singing to his mommy! They are growing so fast and not really babies anymore (Jade is 8, and Ruby is 6). Got a couple of photos from Amy of Annabeth with Hayden that I will have to scrap this week...Hayden will be 7 on the 15th...I can't believe it! Calvin will be 2 next month and mama Maggie is 38 weeks along with Chase! Amy's Annabeth was 2 last month and Eliza was born this past May. Nope, they don't stay little very long!!
Well, I think I need to go rest some more, y'all have a fantastic weekend of making memories to share and enjoy yourselves...will chat more with you a little later. Hugs, Mat
