So, Time Flies When It's Fall...
I can't believe 3 weeks have gone by since I last posted. Not much is really happening. We have a pretty simple routine of work, chores and that's about it.
We are so fortunate to have a beautiful weekend this weekend. It's been warm and sunny both days. Today when I was taking the pups up to the high school my car temperature registered 69 degrees!
We took advantage of that nice weather and today went out to the garden, turned over the soil and finally got the garlic planted. I had been waiting for the manure to be delivered. It was promised for last weekend but still hasn't been delivered. Very disappointing. Why do they want us to wait until it's unbearably cold to go out there and take care of putting the garden to bed for the winter? Very poor planning.
I planted 50 cloves from my own garlic that I harvested during the summer. I have never tried that before. Usually I plant garlic I've purchased from a nursery but I've read about others trying this so I thought I would give it a try.
And look at this bonus! While we were turning over the garden we found these onions. The tops must have broken off at some point so I didn't even know they were under there.
Bowling has gone well lately. Two weeks ago we bowled a new team. They were all pretty young and had pretty low averages. We actually had to give them more than 100 points! We managed to take 3 points from them. This week we were tied for 2nd place and bowled our partner's son, his wife and their friends. We only took the first game by 5 pins, the second by 30 and unfortunately lost the last game by 3 pins! It came down to the last frame, father against son, so they took that game but we took totals!
H moved into a new office at the end of the week. He spent a few hours this morning moving furniture around and getting organized. Nice view!
Someone got her first haircut this weekend! She sat very still and had a couple inches cut off. Such a good girl!
Today I also baked some more cookies but I forgot to take pictures. They were pumpkins, fall leaves and turkeys! One of the little boys at school has brain tumors and we are doing a fund raiser later this week. So far the diagnosis isn't cancer which is a good thing. He's had several surgeries already.
