Yesterday was sunny and warm and beautiful. Today? Rainy and dark. Guess which one I prefer.
And before you ask, I have yet to shred.
I’ve read about this happening but this is my first experience with it. Swarming ladybugs. I took Scout for a walk around the yard yesterday and I kept getting dive-bombed by ladybugs! They are everywhere right now.
They seem to congregate by the kitchen door and along the front porch posts and railings.
I love ladybugs so I was delighted and fascinated. Enter Google. Apparently they do this in the fall as they are looking for a warm place to park themselves for the winter. Time to hibernate, my little ladybugs. Go ahead, use my porch, you can stay for free. They get in the house, of course, and while I love seeing them, they will die if they stay here, so I try to rescue them and put them back outside.
And just when I thought my plants had stopped blooming, look what I discovered:
A lovely little Clematis flower. That was a delightful surprise.
Don was in NYC yesterday and I knew he would be near Lincoln Center. That means he was near a favorite place of mine.
Sorry for the quality. It was dark outside. Yes, he brought me 3 Magnolia Bakery Cupcakes!
I may have twisted his arm a little.
I ate number one last night as we watched baseball. By the way, congratulations to my hometown team, the Detroit Tigers! Couldn’t be happier. Well, if the Red Sox were going to the World Series, I would be happier, but I’m pretty happy about the Tigers.
I’ll be back at 8:00 pm EST for A Favorite Thing.
I’ve listed a new scarf in the Etsy Shop. For those of you who have a problem with wool, this one is made from Silk and Bamboo yarn and, believe me, it is incredibly soft and silky on your skin.
Update: Sold. I’m starting a new scarf as I write this!
