~ Nice Sunny Day ~
~ A Bit more Gardening ~

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

~ Nice Looking Morning ~ October 17th ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Yes, it is getting up time again, Buenos Dias a Todos! Un buen día por delante... I hope
Well it's a little chilly out there at 7 a.m. at 42 Degrees but heading to 68 for a top
And saying it will be Sunny which makes that top of 68 a bit more bearable

8 a.m. Puzzles worked and coffee gone, what now? Do I have any Videos to update?
I got the two 'Temp' Videos files rebuilt yesterday, what else went wrong?
Well when I checked into my Bank today my usual ID was missing, had to re-enter
Did that Windows update mess that up too? Wonder if it's still there now?
AHA... The trash truck is out there making more noise, it must be Thursday again

~ Daisy asking 'Is it Cold Yet?' ~

OK, Time to head out, where to, well the Fast Stop is due I think, headed that away
And Navru was in a happy mood and not on the Phone so we had some back and forth chat
Then I got my Lottos and headed up the Hill to the Price Chopper, needed a load this time
I got all my stuff... except one Item I came for, I had a Coupon for a Super deal on TP
But I forgot to bring it, so I have an excuse to go back and get it and then trade for some more Lottos

But first... Out front in that bright Sun to do a bit of Gardening, those Lilies, ya know
Two empty pods to fill, and the book says to trim the stalks on all the Plants
So I pulled one plant out of the Soil, trimmed the Bulbs off and placed them in the empty Pods
Then I cut all the Stalks off all the Plants, now see what that does next Spring

And then back to the Price Chopper for my 12 Roll Super Pack of TP, saved $6 bucks on that
Then traded for $30 more Lottos and only won $8 back but I had traded in winners... So?

~ Working on the Stairway Plants ~

Back out later to fill up all the Pods in the Stairway Planter with Soil
Not that project should be all done for the year, looks bare now but a bit neater anyway

Then a trot down the Hill for a lengthy chat with Chris and Julie until TV Time
I think we got most of the major World problems solved, at least as if we were running things

Then back for Dinner, baked a Tater, cut all the meat off the last BBQ Ribs I had in the Freezer
Added KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce and that completed my best meal of the Day...

I had that feast with my TV Finale to end another pretty good Day... But my back was hurting! DARN!

~ Thursday ~ ~



~ Wednesday, October 16, 2019 ~
~ Some Clouds ~ Some Sun ~
~ Some Garden Work ~

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

~ Kitchen Plants October 16th ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

8:45 a.m. All done with my Computer runaround, what's next? The Weather Report?
Looks cloudy out there now, yeah, says 'mostly Cloudy and 43 Degrees'... Brrrrr
But later, partly Sunny and heading to 56 Degrees, I guess that's bearable

And I have a few Pots to unload out there when I get around to it, other than that no plans
I have a bigger job out back, if I even get around to doing that, clear out those weed filled Beds
That seems to me to be close to what they call 'work'... And work is against my religion

And... Cleaned up and ready to go, headed out to the Fast Stop and got irritated!
Navru on the Phone again, talk talk talk, I guess because we are friends I can wait for him
Well a little wait is OK but he was overdoing it a bit... after all I AM a Customer
So he stopped long enough to sell me my Tickets and I took off for Home and Fortune
And I nearly won my Fortune back, I spent $45 of my last Winnings to buy $45 more Tickets
I wanted $40 worth but he added another by mistake but I took it anyway and lost on it
For the rest that I chose I won a $5, $5, $15, and $15, that makes $40 don't it?

And Hooray! Another Computer BUST!... I had Two Videos in progress and the 'Temp' files saved for each
I went to add some photos and both of them were GONE! So I checked my Recycle Bin, they weren't there
So where did they go! Only thing I can think of is that I had two Computer upgrades overnight
Well, I still have all my Photos and I can wait to edit them into those Videos when the last Day arrives
Make one at the end of the October, November and December, then put them all together for the 4th Quarter

So on to a late Breakfast at 11:30 a.m. Tried my Apple Pie concoction
Not bad, too much crust for the amount of Apples though, better luck with a full Pie next time

, And then Noon time, and the Sun popped out, I like that, and the Temp creeped up all the way to 47 Degrees!
So, would like to do some Pot Cleaning out front but would like more to try my Luck again
Well, only lost 5 bucks on the last Deal, maybe lady Luck is waiting for me at the Price Chopper

Time Marches On! Lady luck was out to Lunch at the Price Chopper, traded in my Winner Tickets
And only won $6 back, that ain't exactly a Win, is it?

Then nuthin to do... Well there are those lost Videos... Excuse me a couple mimutes
I started over on those two Videos, with an Intro, then added all the Photos and some Sub Titles
Then rendered and copied then to my Hard Drive... And NOW! I have the 'Temp' copies of each all over again
And also a .mp4 Copy in case I lose the Temporary copies again
Then what, not warmed up all that much, Sunny but the Porch shaded, I went out to empty a couple Pots
I emptied Two Pots, then as that Pot was cracking... I emptied the Soil into my Stair Planter
The rain had been washing the Soil out of the upper boxes and the were Plants gone

~ Added Soil to the Planter ~
That gives me a plan for Thursday, pull up a couple Lily Plants for the Bulbs, plant them in the blank spots
Then cut the other plants at the base of the stems for the Winter, read that's what to do

And that was it, back in then to ease through the rest of the Day, put out a Burger to Thaw
Then it's hit the TV for the rest of a purdy good Day

~ Wednesday ~ Not Bad at All ~



~ Tuesday, October 15, 2019 ~
~ A Little more Garden Cleanup ~
~ A Nice Lotto Win ~

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

~ More Coleus Checking out for the Season ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Halfway through October and a new Blog Page begins, who reads this stuff but me anyway?
Well, Patricia now and then and my Cuzzin way out in California says he does
Well, sure handy for me to enhance my dwindling memory of what happened when

Anyway... A Busy Busy Day on Monday for me... And got a few things done...
The front Yard is beginning to take on it's Winter look already, looked great 15 Days ago
I don't remember any Autumn taking it's toll as fast as this one, emptying pots already
Then I remembered the first Freeze is expected here usually about October 15th... and so

Turned out to be a nicer Day Monday, worked out in the Sun with no jacket to unpot stuff
Today, doesn't look as good, says Cloudy, 63 Degrees now at 5:30 a.m. and then 63 all Day
Yeah 5:30 a.m. Woke up wide awake about 4:45 a.m. Gave up and got up

Just playing around with the Window Cam, peeked out at 7 a.m. and Baby! It's still DARK out there
And we are still going to have to put up with this DST until November!
Personally I just wish they would leave the Clocks alone, I see no advantage... (for me anyway)

~ Out Front on Tuesday at 7 a.m. ~

So, time crept on through the Morning getting 'My Day' started, and a few Ideas working
But let's get the Lotto hunt out of the way, headed to the Fast Stop, Navru on his Phone again
Seems most every time I go in there he's on the Phone to someone in Uzbekistan, relatives maybe?
Anyway, got my Lottos and headed back in the gloom, back in to work my Tickets for a $15 win... Ho Hum

Then what's this, Knock, Knock, Tom and the Plumber to take a look at the noise in my Bathroom
Some kind of leak making a hissing noise for some time, Tom decided to get it fixed
They took a look in the Pantry, the Bathroom and the connection out front and left... Now what?
Well 'What' was maybe they fixed it, next time I walked into the Bathroom, I didn't hear the noise
I'll need to check with Tom to see what he says... Hope it's fixed, I do!

~ Hear Me scratching my Lottos? ~

Well then a trot out front to get a couple Photos, more Coleus checking out for the Season
I got a Photo of the Corner where the Tomato and Sweet Potato Pots were, now gone
And guess what? After all the heavy gloomy Clouds earlier, sometime after 9 a.m. bright Sunshine!
Then I cleaned out another Planter with that Coleus that decided to retire

~ One more Planter Cleaned Out ~

And so, not satisfied (when am I ever>) with the last couple Days dinky winnings, try again!
Back to the Price Chopper, traded in my $20 Winners, added $15 more and got Seven more
Then back at el Ranchito I scratched of a $5, then a $15 and then a NICE $50... Winner!
So lets see, that's $85 for the Day, what did it cost? Who counts?

~ First big One for October ~

Then what? A little more puttering around, cleaning up the front Garden a little
Then a trot down the Hill for a catchup chat with Chris, then back to make my Pie<

This time decided to use premade rolled Pie Crust, just lay them out, fill with the Apples
Fold them over, seal and bake, now what do you call those anyway? Small ones are called 'hand Pies'
But it would take two hands to hold these to chomp on, I'll cut them in three pieces
So I peeled, cored and sliced the Apples, added the stuff, mixed them up and onto the Pastry
Folded over and into the Oven and back to the TV, Ater bake time, out to cool

~ Apple Pie ~ Sort Of ~

And that was it for Tuesday except for the usual Finale... Plenty of action for Tuesday
Let's same some energy for Wednesday

~ Tuesday ~ Sort of Busy Again ~



~ Monday, October 14, 2019 ~
~ Hey! Warmer Sunny Day! ~
~ Some Fall Garden Work for the Day ~

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

~ Last look at the Sweet Potato Vines ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday Morning 6:45 a.m. Back at my Computer and hoping I am ready for the Day
Actually finished and posted my Sunday Blog on Sunday Night, that's rare
Usually finish up and post it the next Day... Anyway, 'Let's get started here!'

Weather report... 40 Degrees and clear, Sunny and heading to 72, now that's MY kind of Weather
And actually have a plan for the Day, harvest my Sweet Potatoes (if any) and then clean out some Pots
And first thing, burn couple Blu-Ray DVDS... One working now, made anther mistake somehow
I found I had a double copies of Two Visits, need to burn a copy of Visit Eight and Nine
Not my fault I am thinking, my Video Editor is not acting quite right

OK, 7:30 a.m. Moving right along, all done with my Morning stuff on the computer
Just now waiting for 'Visit' Nine to render and burn a DVD and done for now with my 'Visit' Projects
Out of more Ideas, for the present, of Events that I want to rerun from my History here

And off we go to the Price Chopper at 9:30 a.m. I see two super deals I want to take advantage of
And hitthe ATMfor someLotto Ammo,got my Apples, (on sale) Apple Juice, (on sale)
And Cran/Grape Juice and Glucerna,(not on sale) and then headed down the Hill to the Fast Stop
A cheery Buenos Dias to Navruzbek and gimmee my Lottos and Hasta Luego...
Then sip my Glucerna and work my Six Lottos for only a $10 Win, phooey for that try

~ How Much for this Haul? ~ HAH! ~ $10 Worth for $5! ~

Unloaded my Loot and then back out into the warming Day, what's Tom doing next Door?
Looks like he's laying down on the Job... Oh No... He's welding the Deck Rail

~ More Fixing up the Place by Tom ~

Then back on my side, the Coleus at the far end of my Porch is slipping away
Well it's facing that North wind and gets all the cold wind coming in
The other Plants on my Front are still in better shape, more protected there

~ This Coleus retiring for the Season ~

And then, that Sweet Potato plant, ready for a Harvest? Well let's get at it
I clipped all the Vines on Sunday, today took the trellis out of the Pot, then a Photo
Then I flipped the pot over to dump out the Soil and any Taters if there were any

~ Any Sweet Taters in that Pot? ~

Yeah, a few but not near as many as the last time I tried that
Still enough there for a few samples of Candied Sweet Potatoes for a nice Dinner

~ Yeah, Got a few this Year ~

~ Ready to Wash, Peel and Candy for Dinner ~

So that makes somethimg else to do, Candy them there Sweet Taters...
And I was looking for any other Plants out front that might be rescued from the Cold
Nope, most all too tall or too far gone already... But maybe, that one little Dahlia
I got it from Ace Hardware and it never did much good out front but still trying
So I clipped some dead stuff off and brought it in and set it on the Kitchen shelf

~ Let's see how this little Dahlia does in the Kitchen ~

And... 'Time Marches On'... Anyone remember that in the Movies but me?
Every time I went to the Ashland Theater we had that News Reel and a couple Cartoons added in<
Anyway, ain't it funny how time slips away... Already 2 p.m. and a lot of stuff done so far
Now it's time to go put the Soil back in the Sweet Tater Pot and shove it in the corner

So, out to put all that Soil back in the Pot and sweep it up neatly, yes ma'am
Then load all the Vines I cut from the Sweet Potato and Tomato Vines and take it up to the Trash Bin
Now back in for the rest of the Afternoon at 3 p.m. Shall we trim up the Sweet Taters now?

Yes, and that is what I did, rinse,trim and peel that super Harvest, then slice
Into the pan simmer a while in water, did I simmer too long or are the Taters just so fresh?
They were so tender after a few minutes that they were 'mashing' when I added the spice goodies
Drained them, added some Salt, Butter, Sugar, Cinnamon and Nutmeg, is that enough?
Then into a Cassrole and into the oven to finish up, and set aside for Dinner

~ Sweet Tater 'Mush' Ready for Dinner ~

Then off to TV Land, and is this more than enough Drivel for one Day?
Yep, shore is, see ya on Tuesday... Halfway through October>

~ Monday ~ New Week Begins ~



~ Sunday, October 13, 2019 ~
~ A Little Video Editing ~
~ A Little Garden Clean-Up ~

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

~ Another Bloom in the Kitchen ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ New Look in the Kitchen Garden ~

Up but not at 'em at 5 a.m. Sunday Morning, well... ready to get at 'em though
No ideas yet, about run down after that new Video Series, well Nine Visits so far... Whew
More than enough to bore me amd my guests, if anyone ever does watch them, Oh well, fun to do

So, what's the Weather for Sunday? AHA, a tad better to start at 39 Degrees but only heading to 64 or so
And Sunny... and saying Sunny for the next Five Days, hope they stick to that guess

Well now, I have Seven Videos waiting to be uploaded to Vimeo, when can I get that done?
Hmmmm, just checking, that might take quite a while... My Weekly Limit is 5 GB
Most all of the Videos waiting are around 3 GB each, so only One a Week, Darn!
That is not a real problem, I have Blu-Ray DVDs of each and can play them on my TV

On to the new Day, a made a very slight error on that last Video before I rendered it
No real need to correct it and waste a Blu-ray DVD for ONE wrong WORD...
But I re-edited the Video, then again renderd it and burned another DVD
Next, off to the Price Chopper, just have to have my Lottos, traded in $10, bought $30 more
And just like Yesterday, only won back $10... Well, always tomorrow to try again, (maybe?)

Then, just thinking, those Two plants I moved to the Kitchen brightened up the place
Went out to see what else I might brng in, most too tall or Pots too big though
But one New Zealand Impatiens looked like it might fit, tried it and now lookee!

~ Then a Newer Look in the Kitchen Garden ~

Cruised on into the Afternoon, Sun out there and warmed up a bit.. Went out to do some de-potting
Saw Chris was out front so I dropped down there for some chat, caught up on that, back to the Pots
Pulled the waning plants out of three Pots, then a Planter, next picked all the green Tomatoes left
Then clipped the Tomato Vines out of the big Pot and pulled up the Roots, shoved the pot in the Corner
Finally cut all the Vines off the Sweet Potato plant, will dig out any Sweet Potatoes tomorrow

~ Last Tomato haul of the Year ~

That was enuff activity for the Day, time to check 'What's for Dinner?' and do a TV Evening
Get all set for some Gardening activity in the Morning, start preppng for Winter Time out there
October starts making a mess out of things, dying Plants, falling Leaves... Oh well, something to do

~ Sunday ~ Weekend Over ~



~ Saturday, October 12, 2019 ~
~ And Baby!... It's EVEN COLDER Outside! ~
~ One more Video Finished ~

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

~ Little Geranium still holding On ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! again... Says it it 33 Degrees out there at 7 a.m. Where did our nice Fall weather go?
Usually the first Freeze occurs around October 15th, was darn close last night at 33 Degrees!
The Plants looked good out front yesterday, wonder for how long now, the Coleus is first to go South

~ This Geranium is Retiring ~
Ada Klock now, what's on the Agenda? (What is an agenda?) Just finished my Computer warm up
Now way up to 34 Degrees, says it will be Sunny and 64, let's go swimming...
Well I ain't in no hurry to go anywhere. so I'll just sip my Coffee and play with another Video

And then I started on 'Visit Nine' What goes on that one? Started it with my Inside Gardens
Those AeroGardens kept me busy inside in the Cold Weather for many Months, started in 2016
Now they have been on 'Vacation' since April of this year when I tranplanted the last plants out front

So, I sorted through my Blog Photos to find some suitable Photos, edited them for size
And that took quite a lot of time... then added them to the Timeline of the new Video<

Then it was time to head out into that 'not so cold then' sunny Morning to the ATM, then the Fast Stop
Got my Lottos, headed Home, worked my Tickets for a $10 win and then some 'housework'

Later went out to check my Plants, the Coleus looking a bit weathered, don't like the cold
The little Geranium and Dahlia pots looked good do I brought them inside for the Winter
Well inside for as long as they can last, whatever...

~ Geranium and Dahlia Pots inside away from the Cold ~
And... Then back to Video 'Visit Nine' and kept at it until I finished it in late Afternoon
With that one I think I am at a hiatus for now... I was checking through my Vimeo Videos for subjects
And I think I pretty well exhausted my Ideas for Videos from those earlier tries
But now and then I might come up with more Ideas for catchup Videos of past events here at Windscape

That was it for the Day except for a short Visit with Chris out in the cool...
Now heading to Sunday to see what I can keep busy wirh then

~ Saturday ~ Last of the Current Video Ideas ~



~ Friday, October 11, 2019 ~
~ But Baby... It's COLD Outside! ~
~ A Start on another Video (of course> ~

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

~ Daisy... Daisy... Give me your Answer Do ~
~ Click Here and I'll Sing it for you ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr... He said it would be Cold this Morning and it sure comes close, 38 Degrees at 7 a.m.
Sunny later but says it will only rise to 48 and that ain't so comfy sounding to me

Well no outside plans for the Day but I was thinking of emptying some pots already
Some plants have just about given up and look kinda ragged even before the first Freeze
And the Weatherman said that is on the way... Not too soon, looks like 60s and 70s the next week or so

So, Juice and Coffee and Puzzles, now what? What ya think, another Video to finish
Started in on 'Visit Seven'and just kept at it and was finished and rendering at 10 a.m. Whew!
So into the Shower, all shined up and ready to head out to the Fast Stop for my Daily dunking
Traded in my dinky $5 Win, added a Twenty and got $25 more maybes... And maybe not
So... Four were 'nots' and one was a $10 Win, a little ammo for my second Shot

Well then Baby, it was COLD outside so let's just stay in here... and play with the Computer
Started on 'Visit Eight' with a silly Video of me attempting to play on my Keyboard
Then I wanted to show the Video of my new Roof Installation, but it was so looooong... 35 Minutes!
So I started in... editing it down to a shorter version but still tell the same story
And after quite an effort I got it down to 17 Minutes, I guess that might be tolerable
Then, would you believe... that took me well into the late Afternoon, as I said I get 'immersed
And I finished that 'Visit Eight', put it in line to upload whenever I get some space

So then it was just a taper off to an early bedtime, this cooler weather has me wanting to hibernate

~ Friday ~ Blah Outside ~ Busy Inside ~



~ Thursday, October 10, 2019 ~
~ Cloudy and Rainy ~ Phooey! ~
~ More Video Stuff ~

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

~ Another Impatiens ~ Ain't it Purdy? ~

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

It is Thursday and October 10th already? Gee, aim't it funny... how time slips away>
That is, when yer having fun... or not... But I been having lots of Video fun lately
And more of that today? Maybe, did Six or so in the last couple Weeks... when is enuff?

Well dreary start, sunny finish to Wednesday, what we got for today? 63 and Cloudy now
And... Oh No! Says T-Storms for later, I want some Sunshine please, only my Sunshine
Well, heading to 72 Degrees tops, at least it should be warmer

And a peek out on the Window Cam... kinda cloudy out there but my Kind of Morning so far
I see all the Neighbors are gone, will be nice and quiet all by myself for a good spell maybe

~ No Neighbors ~ GREAT! ~

OK, time to head out, where to? Fast Stop... Dubra Utra to Navru, gimme my Lottos
Traded in $20 worth. added a Fiver, bought $25 worth... and off to the Price Chopper
Needed some Vitamin D pills, had a Coupon for a big hunk of Chocolate Cake for $1.49...

~ Hot Deal from Price Chopper $1.49 ~ German Chocolate Cake ~ Und das ist Sehr Gut! ~

Got my Pills, some Juice and hunted for that Cake, finally found it and headed Home
Unloaded, put my stuff away, worked my Lottos for a $10 Win.... Oh well
And then guess what? Back to another Windscape Visit Video

Worked most all afternoon on my 'Visit Seven' at Windscape, keepng them about 25 Minutes long
Don't know how many more Visits I can make, I have lots of old Videos to check out and add
Finished up around 4 p.m. or so and on to my TV Evening

Checking the Internet on my TV I saw that my Weekly Upload limit had been reset so back to the Computer
I had already uploaded 'Visit One', I set 'Visit Two' to upload, it's 2.0 GB
Finished uploading that one, so I set 'Visit Three' going, it is 2.7 GB long
My Weekly limit is 5.0 GB and that means I am almost out of space all over again
That means I now have Five more Videos waiting, Four more 'Visits' and one 'Quarterly Gardens' Video

And, finished my uploading, went to check my Videos on my TV, that was that for the Day
What's left? The usual, Dinner and TV and Good Night...

~ Thursday ~ Rainy Day ~ Blah ~



~ Wednesday, October 9, 2019 ~
~ Dreary Outside ~ Happy Inside ~
~ Don't ask ~ Just more Video Stuff ~

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

~ One more little Dahlia Popped Open ~

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

~ This Impatiens is still looking Happy ~

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

Well now, up early this Morning... Went to bed early last Night, just a boring Evening
No ideas at all for this new Day, maybe another Video? That might get boring too
Well... Just cruise through the rest of this cool Morning and see what might be what

Well one thing, no uploading any Videos yet... I have FIVE waiting for Upload space
Those Windscape Videos are longer than the usual ones I make, one almost uses up a week's Quota

Oh, forgot to check the Weather... Looks dark and cloudy out there at 8:45 a.m.
Yuck! It's 56 Degrees now, saying mostly Cloudy and only heading to 63 later, not my style
I like a little Sunshine better than a lot of Clouds, don't you?

OK, Morning first stuff done... Off to find my fortune on that dark cool Cloudy Day... Nutz...
I saw Navru's car still at home but I headed to the Fast Stop anyway, the little guy was there
Traded in $15 worth of Winners, got $30 more to try and headed back, saw Chris out front
Stopped in for a short chat and then back to work my Lottos and sip a Glucerna and won $20... Oh Well

And then what? That latest Video with the errors... Can't have that, opened the Editor again
Edited away, errors were easy to correct and then Rendered a new Copy, then burned a new DVD
And then tossed the bad DVD, can't have errors messing up my reputation for perfection!

Another Cup of Coffee and started all over again on Visit Six to Windscape, never say die!
And, need you ask? I stayed with that project all Day, well look outside, nothing going on out there
Except Cold, Clouds and Afternoon Rain... But the Sun started peeking out around 5 p.m.
And that's after I finished my 'Windscape Six' Video and set it to burn a Blu-ray DVD

Finished the DVD and tried it on the Player in the Living Room, wouldn't go, what's up?
Back to try it on the Computer, worked great... HUH? Back on the TV again, still no go
So I burned another DVD, tried this one and it worked fine... Oh Well

And again that was it for another working all Day... Day...
Tried some more Ribs and BBQ Beans and some more TV for Dinner, and that was it...

~ Wednesday ~ Oh Yes, Busy Again ~



~ Tuesday, October 8, 2019 ~
~ A Visitor Project to start the Day ~
~ And One more Windscape Video ~

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

~ Is the Rhododendron trying for a Comeback? ~

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

OK... Weather first... Ohhhh Brrrrr again... 48 Degrees out there at 8 a.m.
But Sunny and heading to 71 or so, turned out almost bearable yesterday at 70 or so

And cruising around on Facebook first thing I ran across the Video I copied with a Camera from my TV
A Downtown tour of Parkville by Channel 4 and better quality than my TV Copy attempt
Now that I have the Link, I have added the link to my Video Index on my Home Page


OK again, Computer stuff all done for the Momemt, time to shower up and get ready for the Day
Get Wayne started on his Video when he shows up and then back to my own Videos
I am ready to start on Visit Five of my Windscape Videos, interesting History now to me<
And maybe to a few other Friends who can put up with my reminiscing

Then I started working on my latest Video, then Wayne showed up about 9:30 a.m.
His wife dropped him off, came in and we got started on details of his projected Video
I showed him how I added and timed photos to the Timeline, other things about editing the Video
We got most everything covered, he just needs to copy and sort his Photos for later when we start his Video

~ Wayne explaining his Video Plans ~

And then, time to head out for my Lottos at the Fast stop, traded in $17 in Wins, bought $32 more
On the way back, stopped in the Price Chopper Parking lotto get a Photo of the new Shopping Mall
Thay have started on one building, don't know who or what yet, I'll keep an eye on it

~ New Construction scross the Street from the Price Chopper ~

Then back Home, stopped for a short chat with Chris and then back in to work $25 in Wins
And, another start on more Video intoxication and got immersed, kept at it all Day
Finally finished the whole thing and set it to render and burn a DVD at 6 p.m.

Then Dinner and TV and and when my DVD Finished I checked it out... Ooops needs some editing
But then, don't they all after I think they are ready, can't upload it yet, time to fix it up some

And that was IT for Tuesday, busy Day? You bet!

~ Tuesday ~ Wow... yeah BUSY! ~

Welcome to Monday, I LOVE Mondays... Now my most favorite Day except for Pay Days... yessir!
But what happened to this Monday ~Morning~? It is 9:30 a.m. already and just starting my Blog
Well I finished and uploaded my Sunday Blog but then got involved chasing down a Video problem
Got that resolved, worked my Puzzles and now ready for the Day... What's the Weather, have Sun in my Window now

Well goodie! A bit chilly now at 52 Degrees but says Sunny and heading to 71 later... sounds good
So lets' go get the Lotto hunting out of the way, hen I am going to dive back into my 'Fourth Visit to Windscape' Video

And that was a deep dive, worked on that item steadiy until 3 p.m.
Finished 29 Minutes of Video timing and set it to render and burn a DVD
Now my Fourth Visit to Windscape is finished, how many more will I do?

Well that Day zipped by fast... Well slow while I was editing but the Clock ticked on
All I have to report after that last Video was Finished was a trot down Mrext Door
To finish the Aternoon with a chat with Chris and Julie
Then it was just Good Night Irene time wth Dinner and TV

~ Monday ~ Still keeping Busy ~



~ Sunday, October 6, 2019 ~
~ The Man said Mostly Sunny ~ But it was Mostly Cloudy ~
~ Just more Inside Piddling ~

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

~ Scene of a Disaster ~ But I fixed It ~

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

Sunday and almost a Week of October gone aready... Just uploaded my Blog for Saturday
Let's check the Weather for Sunday... Looks kinda hazy out there at 7:30 a.m.
And BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR... says 47 Degrees and clear, later heading to 65 and partly Sunny
Coldest Morning yet this Season, they can hold off on that and that would suit me fine<
Felt a bit chilly in here when I got up and I flipped on the Heat to start the Day

And maybe another project in store for me, got a message on Facebook from Wayne Frazier
He's the Assistant Director of the Nature Sanctuary, I see his Facebook posts now and then
He wants to make a Video from Photos for his Mother, he asked if I could give assistance
Why shore, give me something else interesting to keep be busy, show him how on my Programs

On with the Morning, a shower, and off to the Races... Well my race to Fortune
Saw Navru's car was gone, headed to the Fast Stop but he wasn't there, got my Tickets
And headed back up the Hill and tested my luck, not much, only $5... Oh well

So back on the Computer playing around with this and that, felt a pain in my right side
Is that Stomach or Chest? Felt kinda gassy, kept growing and so uncomfortable I went to lie down
I left the Door unlocked and my Phone handy in case it was something serious, sure felt like it
But I felt like belching some, tried as much of that as I could, then fell asleep for a short nap

Woke up maybe an hour later and feeling much better, maybe just stomach gas from something?
Well, all out of Smooth Lax so I headed for Walgreens for that, then stopped by Price Choppr on the way back
Traded in my $5 Win, got $25 more Tickets and headed back, then stopped in to chat with Chris
Kind of cool out there but not all that bad and we had a good talk then I headed back home
Then worked my Lottos for only a $10 Win, but won a $2 Draw Ticket when I entered my Tickets

WOW... Looks like a bizzy Morning there, not getting much of anything done, that was later
I was getting ready to do some Video making and opened my Video Editor
Then clicking around the Page I hit something I shouldn't have, that page is sensitive...
Anyway I lost my Playback Viewer on that Page, you can do nothing without that so where did it go?
So I started hunting around, going nowhere, I even deleted and resinstalled the Program
Really in a bind until I gave up and read the basic Instructions that come with the Program
And then step by step, I finally found the problem and got several things back I had lost earlier

So, then I could resume making another Video,, a bit late (4 p.m.) to be starting on that
But started anyway, more interesting than early TV anyway, and actually sort of productive
I was only going to work a short while on that Video but got hooked again, kept at it until 6 p.m.

But then it was time to find something for Dinner and then endure the evening with Netflix
And I did that until 9 p.m. or so and gave up and hit the sack, Good Night all

~ Sunday ~ Busy Again as usual of Late ~



~ Saturday, October 5, 2019 ~
~ Cool, Cloudy and Wet ~
~ And Video Busy ~

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

~ My Front Gardens in October ~

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

Ho Hum... At 9 a.m. my 'Get Up and Go' hasn't gotten up yet... But I finished Friday's Blog
Kind of reliving Friday which wasn't all that much, inside cool days don't do it for me
And Today doesn't look much better, cloudy now, but warmer than Friday Morning now at 64 Degrees
Yep, says mostly Cloudy, later warming all the way up to 71 Degrees

Finished my Morning Computer stuff then out into that Cool, Drippy, Cloudy Day
Stopped by the ATM, down the Hill to the Fast Stop and 'Dubra Utra' to Navru, gimmee some Lottos
Got my Lottos, 'Hasta Luego' and headed back up the Hill to Home, need I say I only won $5

And that was it for the Days Excursions outside my Windscape Estate, just home stuff after that
And all inside home stuff except for that Photo on the way back in, just thought it looked purdy out there
Back to the Computer and I was on it most all Afternoon

I spent a lot of time correcting that 'Second Quarter' Garden Video
Which I discovered after all my catch up effort, didn't need anything at all
Then I worked on my 'Windscape Visit Three' Video the rest of the Afternoon and finished it
Made a DVD and played it back on my TV and only found three mistakes (so far)

Back to the Computer to fix those, made another DVD and hope that is it for now
I now have two lengthy Videos waiting for enough allowance to upload to Vimeo
Would be nice to increase my Data Limit but costs three times what I am paying for my 5GB a week now

OK, that done, took the trash out to the Bin, saw Chris waving on the way back
Trotted on down there for a wind down chat, then back up to finish out the Day as usual
And a pretty good day again, keeping busy and enjoying the Day

~ Saturday ~ Yep... an OK Day ~



~ Friday, October 4, 2019 ~
~ Another Video Catch Up Day ~
~ Another Cool Inside Day ~

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

~ Trumpet Vine now 63 Inches High ~

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

HUH? Friday already? My don't time fly when yer havin' Fun? And I do that
Kinda hard to believe an old guy fallin' apart and with aches and pains can have as much fun as I do
But I guess it's just attitude and I was built with that born in, an optimistic outlook
Maybe they wrote that Song about me... When I get hit with something not so pleasant?
'This too shall pass... and Life grow Sweeter'

"A rose looks gray at midnight but the flame is just asleep
And steel is strong because it knew the hammer and white heat
These things shall pass and life be sweeter
When love and faith are strong they cannot long endure"

So what kind of Weather do we have to endure (or enjoy) today? Lemmeee look
Well kind of like Yesterday without the damp, says 50 Degrees now at 8 a.m.
Maybe 61 later and maybe partly Sunday, I say maybe... as when are they totally right?

Well what did I do first thing this Friday morning? Hit the thermo and turned on the Heat
First time this Season, not all that cold but sure was a chill when I slipped out of bed
It was earlier than usual too, that XXXXX upstairs making a lot of thunping noise at 5 a.m.
And right above me too, thumping back and forth and then left real early, good riddance! Stay away!

So... Cool and breezy out there, headed to the Fast Stop again, Navru was busy on his Phone as usual
Traded in a $5 Win, bought $25 more and headed out, back to stop in and Visit with Chris a bit
Then home for a Glucerna and lost on all Five Tickets... OH WOE is me!

OK, time to make label Photos for all those new DVDs... Started on that, didn't take all day
And then... Why do I have two Cases with DVDs in them saying 'Gardens Second Quarter'?
Checked out the ending... Both ended with my June Video, no July or August Video...
So, I checked everywhere for that Three Month total, only had a Video of each Month
So whadda ya do about that? Well, add them to the Timeline of the Editor and render into one Video

OOOOPS! See anything wrong with what I just uttered? Senility has set in fer sure!
After remaking that Video and burning a new DVD... I realized what a dumb thing to do
The 'Second' Quarter ends with June, Not end with July and August as I was thinking earlier
And checking the Video I already had, yep, had April, May and June in it, no need for another one
The only thing needed for that Quarter is I have no Video uploaded to Vimeo with it yet
But next week I will do that when my Weekly Quota renews

Well, working on those Videos and Labels and all took me most all of the Afternoon again
Too chilly out there to go visiting, so set out Dinner, headed to the TV and finished another busy Day>

~ Friday kinda like Thursday ~



~ Thursday, October 3, 2019 ~
~ Pay Day Again ~ SS Check in the Bank ~
~ Cool Inside Day ~

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

~ Morning Glory Bloom up in the Tree ~

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

Oh My... Thursday already, well the SS Check is welcome... But the Week is half gone
Feels good to have all the Bills paid and still have enough left over for a couple Lottos
And real good news first thing for ME! I thought I lost a Video in progress but I found it
I have done that before and couldn't find the lost Video and started all over again
But this time I kept hunting and if I do it again, I know the way to find it

Well, hot Day on Wednesday then Cool and wet Evening... Now supposed to get more cool days they say
When the cool front swept in the Storm pounded down and I lost my DirecTV for a few minutes
That rarely happens, the Weather has to be really heavy to do that to the new Satellite TV Dishes
Anyway, what's for today? Brrrrrrrrrrr.... Fall has Fell... 51 Degrees now at 7:30 a.m.
Only heading to 64 and mostly Cloudy they say, Looks like Jacket Weather for me...

And I put my Jacket on and headed out, took a look at the Morning Glory Vine on the Tree
And the Vine climbed to where I tied the String and then climbed a small branch higher
You can barely see One Bloom but there are three up there now

And then I headed off to the Fast Stop, I had $40 in winners to trade in
So I bought $40 in new Tickets and headed home to test Thursday's luck against Wednesday's
And Thursday wasn't so hot, only won $5 this time... But I needed some stuff at the Price Chopper
I needed a Juice refill and they had a whopper sale on 'Fanta', whatever that is
Traded in my $5 Win added $20 and got my refills... Then my Juice and a 12 pack of Orange Fanta for cheep
And back home in that COOL and worked my new Lottos for another dinky $5 Win, No go Bro!

And then... The rest of that whole Day... was back on the Computer and Mesmerized again
I had FOUR newer Videos to play with... My 'Gardens 19 Third Quarter', 'Year 19 Third Quarter'
'Home Windscape Visit One', and 'Home Windscape Visit Two'... Had various things to do to each
Now I have 'Gardens Third' and 'Windscape One' Finished and on Vimeo and on my Blogs
And 'Year 19 Third' and 'Windscape Two' Finished, 'Year Third' is on Vimeo but not room for 'Windscape Two' yet


So here is my 'Year 2019 Third Quarter' Video... Will post 'Gardens Third' When I can upload it
But for my own viewing pleasure (or not) I have made Blu-Ray DVDs of all so I can watch on my TV

So all that piddling took me to Dinner prep time, got that going and headed to the TV
And the rest of the Evening was just as fabulous as all the rest have been and will be

~ Thursday ~ Yeah... WHEW! ~



~ Wednesday, October 2, 2019 ~
~ Cloudy Start ~ Sunny Afternoon ~ Clouds again and then Rain ~
~ Not Much to write Home About ~

~ Happy Morning to You! ~

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

And it's Mid-Week already! Mein Gott! Time do fly when yer havin' fun... (or not)
But I have been having fun bizzy times just about the whole of last Month and can we do it again this Month?
Well, I sure do not have all the stuff in my Video and Web Site Files that I had last Month to work on
I'll have to think of something else I can get hypnotized with, and to play all day with it

I got lots of Toys... Just took a count, I have 180 Web Pages, 250 Blog Pages, 528 Videos on Vimeo
And There are 18,534 Photos in my Computer Files, I have no Idea how many on my Web Site
Well now, I have been messing with Photography for at least 80 Years, ya know, and I keep my Cameras warm

So, we been having some Hot Fall Days this Week, now they say it will cool off, I would like a 'little' of that
Not wanting any 'cold' stuff, the Days I like don't come in big bunches... I like comfy
So what they giving me today? Looks kinda cloudy out there on the Window Cam
Well my Weather Page says 71 now at 8 a.m. Rain Showers and heading to 86 later
Where are those 60s Temps the Weather man said were heading our way?

OK, all done and Nina Klock, 'Let's get started here!'... A Shower and then Lottos
First, the Fast Stop, traded in my Winners, bought my new ones, about even up
Headed back, stopped in to chat with Chris and Julie, back to acratch my Lottos, about even up again<

Back again to the Fast Stop to buy the ones again that I didn't win on, and won on Two
This time a $15 and $25 Win, that's the time to quit when you are a little ahead

Idled on through the Afternoon with this and that, started on Dinner prep early, jazzin up some Green Beans
Some Meat chopped from some BBQ Ribs, add chopped Onions and a dash of Malt Vinegar and then in with the Beans
Then retire to catch up with the Afternoon TV and on to edge out the Evening's entertainment>

~ And that's all She wrote for Wednesday ~

~ Happy Pay Day to Me! ~
~ Happy October to Us! ~

~ Happy Morning to You! ~

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

Here we are again, new Day and new Month and new Blog, a lot of drivel in my last 249 Blogs
Who else can talk so much about so little? Well I ain't got nuthin' else to do

And it's Pay Day and I ended up with way more Money at the end of the Month than I expected
How did that happen, I sure didn't win as much on Lottos in September... Oh well, be happy

So what's to do today? I already have all my Bills scheduled to Pay, Oh yeah, work on my new Video
Already made that clip above for this Blog... Finished two long ones on Monday, one now on Vimeo
That one is now on Sunday's Blog, the other waiting for my Weekly 5 gb allowance to renew, it's a long one
I made a DVD and watched all 38 minutes of that one on my TV last Night, like all the rest, kinda boring

And at it again... I drank my Coffee and worked my Puzzles and then checked on my Garden Video... hmmmmm
And... didn't really like the final scene and ending and so... what? At it again...
Now 10 a.m. After quite a bit of puttering around I got that ending closer to the way I wanted
Then rendered and uploaded... And the new rendering posted on my Blog Page

Out for Lottos then, backed out, saw the Neighbors out front, tooled on down for lot of catch up chat
And about a half hour or so later headed up the Hill, around the Corner and on to the Fast Stop
Had a Coupon for a Free $2 Ticket, dropped $25 more Winners on Navru, got $30 more and headed Home
Lessee, won $28 back, not too bad considering, and back to the Price Chopper for more
Cashed in my Winners, bought more and then got my Juice and Glucerna, Hey! lookee there!
'Best Choice' Canned Veggies for 39 Cents each, better get some, Got 8 cans for $3.12 and hard to beat that

~ See why I love my Price Chopper ~ All for $3.12 ~

So then, what did I win on my Chopper Lottos, lessee... Got a $15 and then a $10, my Money back?
Not quite, I bought $30... Oh yeah, then entered my Tickets for prizes and won a free $5 Ticket
So I guess I broke even on that deal too, Oh well, it's just for fun anyway

Then it was back to the Computer and working some more on my Third Quarter Garden Video
Didn't have the finale just like I wanted so I fixed that, who but me would notice anyway?
Had some trash to take out then, so I took some empty Bags out too, to clean up the Weeds I pulled
Filled Four bags with the stuff I pulled out of the Yard and my Planter and toted them to the Bin

Ya know, seems I am the only renter I have seen do anything out front to keep this place neat
I sweep and flush and weed, Tom does the big stuff but I do my share too

Anyway that took me well into the late afternoon and time to shut down for the Day
News catch up, Weather Catch up, Dinner prep and then to my Netflix Series and Movies
And see you on Wednesday already!

~ Tuesday ~ Again... Busy Enuff ~



~ Monday, September 30, 2019 ~
~ Last Day of a pretty Good Month ~
~ And Busy all Day with this and That ~

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

~ Clouds saying Goodbye to Sunday ~

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

Yeah, good Month this September, kept really Busy, some nice Weather, not much to gripe about
Well, except for the new Neighbor upstairs with her gripes and Noise and flooding my Bathroom
Sure wish the English girls were back up there, no problems for all the time they were here

Everything was quiet and OK when I headed down to chat with Chris Sunday evening
But when I got home around 7 p.m. I saw the Bathroom floor was all wet again next to the Tub
Last time I saw that, the water was dripping down from the ceiling, I suppose the same this time
But wasn't dripping when I got back, I sent an email to Mimi, the Owner, she wanted to know if it happened again
Yes it did, for the Third or Fourth time now and seems to be only when she had a visitor there

~ Rain from the Ceiling ~

So on to the last Day of the Month and with more momey left that last Month... HOORAY!
And Pay day due Tomorrow, looks good for October but November and December, not so good
My Allowance from IBM for my Medical Insurance Progran will run out early this Year
They haven't raised it in in the last Three Years but my Insurance has gone up
So it looks like I will be stuck with paying about $700 out of my next two months Pay

~ Gardens saying Goodbye to September ~

Well now, on to another nice Day, I hope, saying 74 now, 89 later and Sunny again
So now, Coffee and Puzzle time and then off to another Day, before the Day of a New Month and Pay Day

Lotto time, headed to the Fast Stop, had that $35 in Winners to trade, got Five $5 Tickets and Two $3 Tickets
Gave Navru a $1 Bill to make it even, so he gave me back a $5 Bill to put in my Pocket

Then back home, saw Chris and Julie out so I stopped there for a bit before Chris left
And back Home scratched off $43 in Wins, won $3 back on a Ticket, the rest on the $5s

Then back to the Computer to play around a while until I got bored and set out again for the Price Chopper
This time Traded in that $3 for another loser $3 Ticket... and $25 for Five more $5s...
Put the other $20 from that last win in my Pocket and off we go, then won back my $25... Good Day... HUH?
OK what else? Did some grass pulling out of my Stairway Lily planter, looks a lot neater

~ Pulled the Weeds out of the Planter ~

And I aired up my leaking Blazer Tire again, then got some Photos for my new Last Quarter Videos
I edited the new Photos and got started on the New Videos, adding Photos already

~ Pumped up the Blazer Tire... AGAIN! ~

And that was just about it for the Day, ain't that enuff? I was on the Computer until around 4 p.m.
Time for a TV break and then set out something for Dinner, more TV and then...
See ya tomorrow...

~ Monday Finito ~ Pay Day Tomorrow! ~
