Rain in the night

Here I am, doing something I should not do, writing my blog at the last minute. It usually makes more sense when I have edited it a few times. Not today. The emotions of dealing with my mother and sister, along with the many miles put on my car, leave me exhausted at the end of each day. At least I have been sleeping well. I need to say thanks to my friends and family who have been so encouraging over the situation with my mother. Your kind words mean so much.

I have a long list of things to do, inside and out. When I get too tired to think well, I go outside and dead-head flowers in the garden. I’m hoping that a little bit of fall prep each day will make the big job not so big in the long run. I’m planning on moving a large butterfly bush to a new spot, so that has to be cut all the way back. At any rate, there are a lot of small jobs, and soon the neighbors leaves will start falling into my yard, so that too.

Inside, I’m going from room to room and deep cleaning. I have only gotten two done so far, but that’s okay. My goal is to have it done by spring. I’m also contemplating some small remodeling jobs in the house, so I will probably back off on the cleaning until those are done – just because of dust. There is always dust. We’ll see when the bids come in. What I would like to do might cost an arm and a leg and I have none of those to spare.

September is my favorite month of the year. Last night it rained, so the air is fresh this morning, a lovely way to start the day. Maybe there won’t be so much sneezing today. IMG_3717Have a good one.
