|Day 9: Nest|
"Who is the girl? Based on any character?"
"No, just a girl from my imagination"
We had a shower of rain, this afternoon! Right after I had watered some of the plants in the front garden with buckets of water I had saved from when I had showered! Not a very heavy shower of rain, but, there was a flash of lightning followed by a clap of thunder, loud enough to scare Dancer, and then, a brief shower of rain for about 15 minutes. It was long enough to wet the ground. We need a few more showers of rain like that!
|Day 10: Crabby |
"Krabby, a character from Pokemon"
Neighbor S called me in the morning to tell me that she had put some of her overflow trash into my black trash bin that was out on the curb waiting to be picked up and I told her that was not a problem at all. Then, she asked me if I would like some chocolate covered strawberries that her niece had made and I said I'd love to have some. She also brought me some other chocolates that had an orange gel like filling:

Compliments of S
I was able to give some fresh papaya that I had peeled and cut this morning to neighbor S in exchange (she had already declined my offer of turkey-vegetable soup, saying she had a lot of food leftover from the family gathering over the weekend).
Yesterday, Monday, I started on my Fall house cleaning. I know that most people tend to do Spring cleaning, but, I like to do a Fall cleaning, too. I washed the inside of the front door, dusted the windowsills and dusted the living room furniture. I will wait until it is closer to the end of the month to decorate for Halloween, though. Later in the day, I cleaned the bathroom and the litter box, took the trash cans to the curb, and did some paperwork.
