~ Saturday, September 26, 2020 ~
~ Not a Really Busy Day ~
~ Weather Warned Up ~

~ Some Jalapenos on the Way? ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

It's Saturday and I am not ready for anther weekend, for a couple reasons I don't have to repaat
Oh well, I guess there are a couple of things that are OK or even interesting but I still like Mondays better

On to the Weather, Joe says it is gonna get hot after promising no more 90 Degree Days a couple weeks ago
What are they saying for Today? Well, nice now at 66 Degrees and stilldark out there at 6 a.m.
Then heading to 86 and Sunny again and Joe says it just might hit 90... Hope not...

~ Checking the Tomato Plants in Garden Three ~

And Morning stuff done, off to the Price Chopper to lose the rest of my money and I came close
Hit the ATM, then hit Machine Two and got my samples and headed back... And...
Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, Scratch, and Scratch
Yeah... Scratched off NINE Duds! But I did win $3 on a Free Show Me Cash Ticket that might win in tonign's Draw

Done for the Day? Not quite, hit the ATM again and headed down the Hill to see Navru, got anther sample
This time scratched off a $5 and $17 Win, Nutz and Phoooey! But I still have more left in the Bank than last Month

Time to quit? Are you kidding, I don't know what that word means... Back to the ATM and Price Chopper
Traded in my $22 Win for more and then back to try again and... Scratched a $5, $10, $10, $15 and $15
That's more like the way I like to play the game... WIN! WIN! WIN!

That was about it for Saturday, not a lot going on but tolerated it well

~ Saturday ~ Just another Weekend Day ~



~ Friday, September 25, 2020 ~
~ Sunny and Warm ~ Yeah ~
~ Some Front Gardening ~

~ That Canna Bloom ~ Bigger and Brighter ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Up and not at 'em yet... much later than usual, almost 8 a.m.!
Working out some finishing details on some weird Dream as usual
Then my Computer running around, mostly arguing on Facebook, now at 9 a.m. to start today's Prattle
Need to go pour a Cup and then check the Weather and then 'Let's get started here'...

Sip Sip Sip, The Weather? Sunshine pouring in my Window, Forecast says 69 Degrees now
And heading to 85 tops and Sunny, well Joe said we were gonna get some more warm now

Finally after a long Morning, headed to the Price Chopper for some Juice and a Lotto refresh
Got my stuff, headed back, saw Chris leaving for the Doc and Julie out front...
So I stopped in for a little chat, then back up the Hill to work my Lottos for a dinky $15 Win

Then, printed out a couple free Coupons for Two #2 Tickets and headed for the Fast Stop
Got a resupply and headed back to scratch off a better $27 Win this time, and then what?

Well, the weather people say we haven't had any rain since when? And the Plants were looking a bit thristy
So I hooked up the Hose and out front to water everything very good from one end to the other
Then a bit of a rest in my Porch Chair to enjoy the breeze and then, hey what about those stairway Lilies?
Two 'boxes' were empty, what happeed to them? And other boxes had two or more Plants
So I pulled some Plants from a couple boxes and put them in the empty ones to see what they do now
And those I pulled up had several Bulbs on the Roots, they would probably make new Plants if and when

~ Moved a Couple Plants to empty Spots ~

Enuff outside for the Day, back in to wind down the rest with the usual... Ho Hum
See ya ...uh... on SATURDAY? Already?

~ Friday ~ Yep, Good Day ~



~ Thursday, September 24, 2020 ~
~ Some Back Garden Rehab ~
~ Another Good Weather Day ~ Sunny and Comfy ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well what's for Thursday? Joe said a Weather change on the way... What's my Forecast?
Looks about like Wednesday except for the Sunny... 60 Degrees now, heading to 79 and Sunny
Well just a tad warmer maybe but he says warmer on Friday

And the plan for the Day? There ain't none... Just see what comes and goes again
Off to work my Puzzles, the Jumble with some 'What's that?' words, HUH? Who knows
Coming up with names or people and things I never heard of... Is that a fair Crossword?

Question of the Morning... Where to go for Lottos? I have won just about everywhere the last Five Days
I used to keep track of every Card I won everywhere so I could pick a more likely place to try
Bot lately just depending on memory and that's getting faulty... though I stil have been winning
Anyway, I think I'll start keeping track again, see if that brings me any better luck

So, I think I won my Favorite $10 Card at the Fast Stop but I'll try there anyway without that Card
And... Hola Amigo, quiero Tarjetas buenos ahora! Got all three $10 Cards and the rest of the $5 ones
Back home to win $10 on two of the $10 Carda and one $10 from the $5 ones... Oh well can't win 'em all

Then... Bright Sun but still cool, time for some Garden repair? Headed out back again
And pull, pound, jerk, shove, load... Finished tearing up the old Cucumber Bed
Now, next Year, plant new in the ther Gardens or demolish them too? That is the Question

~ The Way it Was ~ The Way it Is ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ On the Way to the Trash Bin ~

Then I loaded up my AeroCart with as much of the junk as I could, then trundled it to the Trash Bin
Dumped it in, then saw Chris and Julie out front, dropped off the Cart and then down to brag about ny Garden cleanup

And back to finish out another Day, a bit more productive than usual...

~ Thursday ~ Yeah... Did some 'Work' ~



~ Wednesday, September 23, 2020 ~
~ Just another Good Day ~ Except ~
~ No Big Lotto Win for Wednesday ~

~ Here we Go with that Basil Again ~ Raise the Light ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Wednesday... Oh it's a long long time...from May to Decenber... But the days grow short when you reach September
But it sure didn't seem to take long this Year for me... Time do fly when I'm having fun

And a whole Week ot so of good Weather and more to come, Joe said we might get a little rain today
But today's Forecast doesn't mention that, 64 degrees now, mostly Cloudy and heading to 75
That should do, as usual no plans, might get out back again to clean up that ex-Garden

OK, cruising the Net and checking out Facebook, saw a post by Ace Hardware saying come and get the Flowers
Well I alredy got mine in the Spring and made a Video way back when... Wonder if they saw it?
Well I'll give them a chance for another look, and posted it on their Post as a comment... HAH!

~ Ace Hardware Post ~ And then My Post ~ On Facebook ~

And here's the Video... When? Spring of 2019 I believe... And what happened to that Flower I bought?


Backed out to head out for Lottos, saw Julie and Chris out front waiting for his ride
So pulled in there to brag about my Lottos and garden stuff until his ride showed up
Yhen OK again... Off to the Fast Stop, passed Navru's Car at his place, not working this Morning again
Hit the Clerk with $45 Winner Cash for all of the $5s and a $10... Headed for Home...
Scratched away to find a $5, $10, $10, $10 and a $15 Win, Hey Hey! Made a $5 Profit!

Well of course I could not be satisfied with that, so back to the Price Chopper
Cashed in my $50 of Winners, bought $40 more, headed back to only win back $25 this time
On to the rest of the Day, not much else going on, one more trip to find some more Lottos
And only found #20 in Winnings, time to quit... and the rest of Wednesday was... Oh well...

~ Wednesday ~ End of my 5 Day Lotto Winning Streak ~



~ Tuesday, September 22, 2020 ~
~ Another Lotto Win! ~
~ Never Fear ~ Autumn is Here ~

~ A Bright Spot Welcoming Autumn ~


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well now? What for Tuesday? Been a winning Day every Day since Friday!
With Wins of $50, $50, $50, $50, $77, $100 and $100... Not counting the smaller ones
Don't know how much I spent to win those but... I haven't hit the ATM since Friday
And I am starting Today with $200 of Winner Money in my Pocket... Let's go win again!

My Internet done for the Moment, what's the Weather? That dippy dancer said like Monday I think
Yep, so far, 59 Degrees at 8 a.m. heading to 76 and mostly Cloudy, but Sun peeking over the Trees now

~ A few more little Blooms on the Rhododendron ~

And the eternal question, where to for my Tuesday Fortune? I'm thinking Machine One at the Price Chopper
And will Lady Luck visit me again? She dropped in and gave me Winners $50 and over for the last 4 Days
Best modest winning streak I can remember, that much in that short a time, well, try again!

OK, off to the Price Chopper, cashed in a $20 Win, hit the Machine for $50 worth
And not worth $50, only won $20 back, Oh well I still had a pocket full of Winner Money

Well then, I can try that $20 on a couple $10 Tickets at the Fast Stop, wonder who's there?
I saw Navru's Car in front of his place on the Way out to the Price Chopper, well we shall see

So I stopped in at the Fast stop, traded in my $20 Winner, added a $10 amd got Three $10 Tickets
Back then and only scratched off One $17 Winner, Oh well... Was that all for the Day? You kidding'

Decided to try again at the Fast Stop for the Two $10 Tickets I lost, then trucked on down to the Grab abd Go
Got the Two $10 Tickets and headed back... Turned the corner to Home and there was Navru and Kid out in the Street
They hitched a ride down to my place, got out and then both trotted around here and there, up and down the stairs
And I sat out front at my Porch Table and scratched away on Three Duds, but the last one... Hey! $50 Win
So where was I on Wins and losses? Still had $132 Cash and that $50 Winner for a total of $182... Only a $18 loss

~ Another One! ~ Fifth $50 Win for the Month ~

On through the Day and I was thinking of the Back Gardens again, keep them or junk them?
Well the oldest, which I started at the side of the Building in 2007, then moved up on the hill and then down again
Not in good shape now, base boards rotting, Soil seeping out, looked like time to retire
So I started on that, clipped off the screening, pulled the boards apart, now waiting to haul to the Dunpster

~ Garden Retired after 12 Years ~

Then back down the hill, saw Julie and Chris out front so stopped by to brag about my labor
Well it did kinda poop me out, was ready to head to the TV and sit out the rest of the Evening

~ Tuesday ~ And another Good Day Overall ~



~ Monday, September 21, 2020 ~
~ Another Lucky Lotto Day! ~
~ Win some, Lose some, It's just Lotto Fun ~

~ Oh What a Beautiful Morning! ~


~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday, another new Week amd that last one sure slipped away quickly, well seems so now
The Afternoons are slow but the Mornings just seem to fly by... and Time Marches On...

Well now, what did they do to my Weather Page? added a purdy pitcher on it
58 Degrees now, Sunny and heading to 77, Hey I can just add the Photo here can't I

~ Forecast for Monday ~

Moving fast today, puzzles all done, Jumble was real easy, Crossword a bit more complex
All the rest of my Computer runaround done, for the moment, but I'll think of something...
Nothing else on my mind except a visit to Navruzbek, see what I can do with that pocket full of winnings
Doggone, three lucky Days in a row! Now if I could just land that BIG one so I could get a new Mercedes...

And... Headed to the Fast Stop on that cool Morning... Cashed in my $165 Win, bought $45 more tries
Pocketed $120 in Cash and headed home to win back $20, Oh well, some ya win and some ya lose

Of course I couldn't live with that $25 loss so I headed back, cashed in my $20 Win and added $10 for more
And this time back to scratch off $42 in Wins, did I win or lose? Who keeps track anyway, it's fun for me

Doggone, feels like Sunday to me, I was thinking of going back to the River Sunday but didn't get around to it
So what now at 10 a.m.? OK, need some Glucerna and still have that $42 in Wins and $140 in Winner Money
So, I'll just go get my Slurp and some Ice Cream and try again for that BIG ONE!

At the Price Chopper, I hit the Machine wirh $50 this time, got all the $5s and my Favorite $10 Ticket
Back then to scratch away and... Got a $10, $17, $20 and Lookee there! Another $100 Win, how did I do that!

~ Keep it Going! ~ Third $100 Win for the Month ~

And... That was just about all for a good Monday, on to a long Afternoon and Evening on the TV
Some this and that and finished with the other... See ya Tuesday?

~ Monday ~ YES! One More Good Day! ~



~ Sunday, September 20, 2020 ~
~ Lotto Lady Luck gave me a Kiss! ~
~ Another Nice Day ~

~ What's that Bush in my Cucumber Bed? ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Sunday it is... and 10 Days left in September... Baby it's gonna get COLD outside again
Sure cooled down the last Week or so, just a bit too much for my personal comfort
But obviously the powers that be that set the Temperature do not have my preferences on their agenda
So what's it gonna be for Sunday? 55 Degrees at 8 a.m. and heading to 76 os so, kinda like Saturday

Well that trip to the River Saturday was a break in the Afternoon, but not much more, not much going on
And a bit uncomfortable on the Bench with gusty winds and the Temp just a bit cool for my taste

And... Where for Lottos today? I was behind on big Wins until the 18th, I won the first Two on the 8th
Then that lucky Three $50s on the 18th and then that nice $77 on the 19th, so Six so far? Gimmee more!

So, another long delay finishing up the Morning Computer runaround, what was I doing anyway?
In and out of the Shower and off to the Price Chopper, no Winners to cash in but still had Winner Money
Got my maybes, headed back to scratch and got a $5 and a $10 and nuthin else and now I am gonna cry!<
Well, mayne not out loud, just maybe frown a bit...

So, nothing much to do around here so I took a walk out back, checking the old Garden Beds
And that old Bench that fell apart up on the Hill, pulled some of the Boards off
Then checked the unused Cucumber Bed, thinking of pulling it apart and dumping it, when I get in the mood

So drifting on into the Afternoon again and bored again, should I just sit here and cry or try again for Lottos
Hah! Off to the Price Chopper again cashed it my $15 Win, added $25 and got some more
So back at el Ranchito, scratched off a $5 Win, then a $10 and then WOW! Another $100 Win!

~ Second $100 Win for the Month ~

Then a couple Duds and again WOW! Here's another $50 Win, the Fourth one for the Month!
That's about three times as much ammo as I need for Tomorrow's try

~ Fourth $50 Win for the Month ~

Well now, after 7 Days this Month I won the first Two Lottos over $40, and since then Six more
Making September being one of the best Winner Months this Year, Oooops, just checked I won 9 In August
HUH? I didn't realize I was winning that many, checked again and looks like 12 in July!
Then checked June and counted 7... And for the Year so far 86! I didn't realize I was winning that much
I would hate to see how much I have lost winning those though... Well, I don't need that money for anything else

Anyway, not much else to report for Sunday so let's close down this Weekend and get on to a new Week

~ Sunday ~ Yes... One more Good Day!

~



~ Saturday, September 19, 2020 ~
~ A Lttle Garden Clean Up ~ More Lotto Luck ~
~ Another trip down to the River ~

~ Canna Bloom ~ On the way Out ~ On the way In ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Yes, Saturday all over again and not a single Idea at 6 a.m. Maybe after I wake up ya spose?
And that dancing idiot on channel 4 said last night we would have another good Day for whatever comes up
Yeah, says ... brrrrr... now at 54 Degrees and only heading to 72... and partly Sunny, well not bad

OK, Friday Blog uploaded, Internet explored, Puzzles worked, 7 a.m. and what now, bored already!
Feed the Dog and Horse? Nope, don't have one and that wild Cat can wait until I am D G & R...
Only thing on the 'Agenda' at the moment is where to find some more winning Lottos
I still have $155 of Yesterdays Winner Money in my pocket to waste on more tries

Well, how about the Price Chopper again? off into that cool sunny Morning
Cashed in my latest $20 Win, added a few Bucks and got another handful and back to scratch
And then scratched off a $5, $10 and one more $77 Win, not bad... A $92 Win for the Day!

~ 17th $77 Win on this Ticket ~

And then a little Garden Work, well not much 'work', just some clean-up
The Tomato plants at the end of the Garden about finished for the season, got only One Tomato from the big Plant
And the tiny ones on the other Plants not doing well, and Fall is on the way you know
So I pulled all the Plants from the Pots, loaded them in my Cart and trotted them down to the Gully to dump

~ Tomato Plants to Go ~ And Gone ~

And then what? Decided to take another hike down to the River to see what I could see
And there wasn't much to see, I had a seat on the Bench again, just watched the Hikers, Bikers and Cars


And only one Boat, it tooled up the River then parked across from the Ramp, looked like they were fishing
So I sat and watched a while, not much going on, after some time, headed on back

~ Odd Looking Boat ~ Think it will Float? ~

And what? Around 2 p.m. no more ideas so an early start on my long evening of TV
Getting hard to find any Movies that make sense and have some kind of reasonable ending
Just leave me sitting there thinking... DUH!

Oh well, I guess Saturday was OK.. and like the 'Reverend' says... 'There will be a better Day Tomorrow'...

~ Saturday ~ Oh Well ~



~ Friday, September 18, 2020 ~
~ Lucky Lotto Day! ~
~ A Little Cooler but just as Nice ~

~ The Marigolds like the Sunny Days ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Another Week of September winding up, time does fly and I am having Fun, sort of
My not doing much of anything kind of fun, Photos, Videos and my Blog and a little Gardening and Lottos
Well at least keeping kind of active and not overly bored for someone over that hill
Hard to really believe that I am that OLD! I run into people all over the place at 70 that act older than I do
In my Head I feel like I am in my 20s, wish my body would keep up that way...

Anyway it's Friday again and heck... another Weekend ahead... Maybe another trip to the River?
Seems things get really busy down at that Boat ramp on Saturday and Sunday, wonder why? (HAH)

So, another nice Day ahead? Sure has been a nice Weather Week so far, let's check my Forecast
Oooooops... 53 Degrees at 8 a.m. that's a bit on the cool side, but Sunny and heading to 71
Yes Ma'am, a little cooler than Friday all the way, but that should do nicely

Finished my Puzzles in good time, whizzed though the Jumble the last two Days
The Words aren't so hard, just some of the ending Phrases are so silly it's hard to figure them out
As I remember, they used to make more sense than they do now, are they running out of ideas?

And then... Off to the Price Chopper, what did I forget to load up on Thursday?
Cashed in my skimpy $5 Win, added $40 and got a handful of Lottos, then to the Candy Aisle
Got my Chocolates and headed for the Peanuts, got that and on the way to the Juice
Hauled that armload to the Cashier and then headed for home to scratch
Scratched off a $5 $10, $10, $15 and $50 Win! How about that... some profit in that $90 Win!

~ First $50 Win for September ~

And back to the Fast Stop to bother Navru, got another handful and pocketed the rest of my Win
Back again to scratch, this time a $15, $15 and another $50 Win, Lady Luck smiling at me!

~ Second $50 Win for September ~

And back again to the Fast Stop, traded in my Wins, got a few more tries that I hadn't won on
This time scratched off 4 Duds and then another nice $50 Win, Hey Hey! $220 in Wins for the Day!

~ Third $50 Win for September ~

Well lessee, what did I do after that? I did a little more on that short Video of the walk out back
I added a few details that wouldn't matter to anyone but me, but I just like things the way I want them
After all, I am the one that sees all my Videos, my audience is very limited... But then I am a nitpickler

So as I remember I finished out the Day as usual, getting hard to find any good Movies on Netflix or Amazon
Especially the crazy non-endings they are now adding to their inferior Movies... Yuck

~ Friday ~ Oh Well... A Good WINNING Day! ~



~ Thursday, September 17, 2020 ~
~ A Tour of my Non-Garden ~
~ Another Nice Day ~ Just a bit Cooler ~

~ A few more Blooms on the Morning Glory Vines ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

8 a.m. Starting on my Thursday Blog a bit late, slept in until 7 a.m. trying to finish up a silly dream
Didn't quite get it done so I woke up anyway to get the Day going, but only one thing on my schedule
That's my Car Inspection but I have to wait until 5 p.m. to do that and so... on with the Day

Oh... A little cooler today starting at 60 Degrees, but Sunny and heading to 74 or so
Well I do believe we can live with that quite comfortably

Only thing on my non-schedule today is to get a shower and shave and what else?
Nothing at the moment but later try to find some winner Lottos, ain't been doing so good this Week
Or... for this Month so far either, only big Wins were One $77 and One $100... let's get with it!

And off to the Price Chopper, I forgot to get my Sugar yesterday... Cashed in my last $10 Win
Got today's samples from Machine Two, got my Sugar and headed home to lose some more
And then put a damper on my Day by losing all but $5 of my last attempt at my Fortune

OK What's next, another Idea, let's take a walk out back to see my Non-Garden I have been neglecting
I guess the Cat was bored so he took a walk with me, maybe to just Star in my Video?
So I took a walk, saw some new flowering Bushes and where did they come from and what are they?
Then I got some shots of my Ex-Gardens and headed back in, ...Do I just Video everything around here?
Well looks like it, so I edited and rendered and uploaded and here it is


Well now I skipped my Video hiatus that happened when I was editing... The Power went off
Darn! What can you do at all with no Electricity! What a disaster, seems like I have to be hooked up all Day
I waited a bit, then remembered my Garden needed watering so headed out to do that
Watered everything out front, Then saw Julie out front and dropped down to complain about the Power outage
She said her Power had just come back on... So AHA! Back to finish my Video and set to upload

~ Big Old 'Knock Out' Rose Bush still Knocking ~

While watering I got a good look at my Rose Bush on the Neighbor's side of the Garden
I had my Phone in my pocket as usual so of course I had to get a Photo...

What about that Grow Light on my AeroGarden, Is the trouble the Light Fixture or the Control inside?
Had an idea how to check it, plug it into the working Garden fixture and that I did
And the Light blinked hooked up that way too, so I do need a new Grow Light... Garden on hold for now

And then it was just pass the time until 5 p.m. and head to Northland Auto
Got my Auto Inspection, headed back to finish out the Day as usual..

~ Thursday ~ And yes, Pretty Good Day ~



~ Wednesday, September 16, 2020 ~
~ Another Nice Weather Day ~
~ Another Crop of Basil in the Jar ~

~ Here we go Again with that Basil ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Waking up to Wednesday... Another nice Day ahead, I think Joe said a whole nice Week ahead
So what's for Wednesday, already Sun shining in my Window... Forecast says 63 now, partly Sunny and headif to 81
Well yeah, that is just like Tuesday, so what else is new? Well, looks like another Basil Harvest

Plodding through the Morning stuff, then headed out on a sunny Morning to Walgreens, got my stuff
Next door to the Price Chopper, got my stuff and my Lottos, won back $20
Not enough so I headed down to the Fast stop, got some more, only won $10 this time

OK, time to Harvest and dry the Basil, clipped the Leaves from the Aerogardens
Then the leaves off the Stems and into the oven to dry, now will we get another Crop?

~ Basil ready to Unleaf ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Basil Ready for the Oven ~

And then, had a load of whites to wash, what about that Washer, shall we try?
I thought I could try a light load and watch as it loaded, rinsed and spun to see if it leaked
And it went through the process with not a drop on the floor, so what happened before? HUH?

Then, thinking,what to do about that AeroGarden with the blinking Grow Light
Well for now, decided to move the Plants to Pots and see what happens... Check on the Grow Light later
Brought in a couple Pots and some Soil, potted the plants and made room under the Shelf Grow Light
Now see how they do, and think about what to do about that Aerogarden when I need something else to do

~ Tomato and Pepper Plant moved to the Shelf ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Well that wasn't much but that was about all for the Day, nothing else much to brag or complain about
Just anther nice Day to use up and enjoy as much as I could... And... it was OK

~ Wednesday ~ Yeah, as I Said ~



~ Tuesday, September 15, 2020 ~
~ WHAT! Another Garden Video? ~
~ Halfway Through September ~

~ Time for my Fall Door Bouquet ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

WHAT! Already? September is speeding along... Seems my Days are getting shorter
Well on the last few I have been hanging on to the Computer with this and that using up the Morning
And when I get off then the Afternoon speeds away... So, no project to waste away the Morning today

And how many nice Days so far? Looks like another one for Today Joe says...
61 Degrees at 8 a.m. and looks nice out there... Partly Sunny and heading to 81, yeah that's nice

OK, a couple problems to take care of one way or the other... That AeroGarden Grow light, but no hurry
Thinking it might be expensive and I can postpone that until I get in another growing mood
More important is what's wrong with my Washing Machine and do I have to buy another?

And then my Auto License is due for renewal in October, got to get around to getting an Inspection
And what will they find to fix in that old Mercedes, another looming disaster?

Happened to take a look around the side of the Building, hey! Look at the Rhubarb
Haven't been paying much attention to the side Gardens, now looks like another harvest

~ Rhubarb ready for Harvest ~

I clipped the Stems, off with the Leaves, chopped up and into the Pan for Rhubarb Sauce again
So then the Rhubarb with a little Sugar in the Water to simmer up the Sauce

~ Rhubarb to be Clipped and Sauced ~

And then, cruising on Facebook and getting likes on my Posts, one comment gave me an idea
One Lady liked one of my Garden Videos so I thought I would get another up to date one
And with a differebt view too, most all I've done show the front from the street View
How about one from the View I get when sitting on the Porch? Let's try that...

So, started, sitting in the chair on the Neighbor's side, then moved to the Bench there
Next to one of my Chairs on my side, then another farther down and finally standing at one end
And I like the result, a closer look at the Plants as the Camera sweeps by, here it is, take a look


Rendered, Uploaded and Posted on Facebook, the Lady saw it, commented and here's what she had to say:

~ Melodee likes my Video ~

And that used up most of the rest of the Afternoon, finished my Rhubarb Sauce and into the Fridge
Then the usual TV run down and off to Dreamland again and yeah, more of those detailed excursions
Seems I do more time Dreaming than Sleeping, is that why I am more tired when I get up than when I go to bed?

OK, let's see what happens on Wednesday... ALREADY! Wow!

~ Tuesday ~ Yep, again... Busy Enough ~

Well if it ain't one thing it's a couple more... First look in the Kitchen... Blink Blimk
The Growlight in AeroGarden One was winking at me, now what is that gonna cost?... if I get a new new one

Yeah now 11 a.m. Monday, did it again, just finishing another Video, well adding a Video to a Video
Instead of making my Sunday Video separate... I added it to my Saturday Video, now twice as long
A little tricky to do, started on it when I turned on my Computer, had it rendering about 10:45
Sill have a separate copy of just the Saturday Video but I like the idea of adding the second

So, looks great out front, a sunny Morning... What's the Temp? Ohhh... Nice! 70 Degrees now heading to 78
Now again that is about as close to a D.N.P. Day as you can get (for me)

So, Sunday a good Day for fun on the River, not so lucky with the Lottos and also trouble in the Kitchen
I put a load of wash in the Washer early, then watered all the Kitchen Plants
Then started on that Video that took all the rest of the Morning... And into the Afternoon
After that I headed to the Kitchen and there was water all over the Floor! YOW!
What did that? Too much water on the Plants and overflowing... Nope they are all on trays
And none showed any overflow so... must be the Washer, water on the floor up to the front of that
So I put some big towels all over to soak up the water and put my clothes in the Dryer
Went on with the Day, now I have to find out what's going on with the Washer, do I need a new one? DARN

Now what? It is Tuesday Morning and I went about the rest of Monday without adding to this Blog
Well as I remember now it wasn't any different from any other nothing Afternoon
A trip to the Price Chopper and the Fast Stop, some non-winning Lottos... Ho Hum
Maybe something will show up on Tuesday... HAH! Whenever does it?

~ Monday ~ HUH? What did I do? ~
