I wonder how many of you ever got attacked by your own garbage can.
Well I'm embarrassed to say but I fell victim  to this attack last Thursday morning and although I'm healing quite fast, thankfully I'm still sporting tell tale bruises on my face and knee. I got a black eye and a black bruise on the side of my left chin and my right knee. All this happened because.... well... my hubby didn't put the garbage out last Thursday morning like he was supposed to do and I was late for my barn chores as I hadn't slept much the night before because of shoulder pain and humidity and heat. I was so very tired that morning to begin with.

I proceeded to remedy the situation and since I was late I decided that since there was very little garbage in our huge Dolly garbage can that I simply would put the recycle bin on top of the open dolly and push it down the slopping drive way saving myself a trip.

When I got to the bottom of the slope and into the tall wet grass, my foot must have hit the open cover hanging down and the dolly went on it's side with me plunging face first in the hard cover. It could have been worst since I have osteoporosis, yeah...  All this happened so quick and I landed my butts in the very wet grass and went to the barn with a wet ass.  To make matters worst the Baptism was just a few days away and I didn't want to ruin my grandson's baptism pictures. I had to buy some makeup to try to cover my bruises and I hate wearing makeup because it feels awful on my sweaty skin in the heat.

I've been taking some pictures of the remaining flowers yesterday. My grass is uncut and the weeds have taken over and I'm tired of the whole mess like many of you.  That's why God in his wisdom gave us Fall...

One lone little day lilly left. Most of the weeds are forget-me-not that self seeded. I'll have to pull them out.

My poor tomatoes got hit  real bad with the blight this year, and my beans are about finished. everything else is growing well.

Thank God for late bloomers, some of my day lilies  are still blooming and some are done blooming.

I'm having difficulty uploading photos at the moment so I'm going to stop before something else happens to my blog.  Thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment. Have a great weekend.  JB
