A little splash of color from my phlox

 Why has posting on my blog become worst than going to the dentist? I have no idea. I feel that even though I've been busy, busy, busy, I have nothing for my blog. I haven't taken any pictures because I've kept my nose to the grind. Julia is a very dull girl... lol

I've bottled almost 300 bottles of pickles, veggies, and jams yet it feels like it's not interesting enough to share so I didn't take any photos. We made $3200.00 with our Farmers Market in only 3 hours.  It was a lot of work to prepare but also a lot of fun too. No pictures...

I usually can keep my gardens reasonably free of weeds but not this summer. Now I'm cleaning out the large daylily bed which has become weedy in places and looked like a jungle. I'm three-quarters done. No pictures...

My hip continues to give me a bit of a problem but I'm managing quite well just the same. I'm Ok if I don't overdo it.

 My son Vaughan, has mowed my lawn for most of August and September with the large sit-on mower but is too wide for certain spots in my yard.  My lawnmower cord has become stuck and I need to bring it to the repair shop but need some help to load it up in the trunk of my vehicle.  In the meantime, I've been using my weed wacker to cut the tall grass. One big branch fell on my shed and I'm waiting for it to be taken down and cut for firewood. The branch fell after Fiona had passed. No pictures...

We were very lucky that Fiona was kind to us and I feel bad about all those who have lost property and lives. So much destruction over a wide area. Our diocese is collecting money for the Red Cross appeal to help in the relief efforts for Hurricane Fiona in Canada for victims. The government of Canada will match the amount collected by our diocese. 

That's all for now. Take care and stay well and safe.
