I've tried to do an entry for a few days but always get interupted. So I'll do what I can and hit 'SAVE'.
I’ve spent the last few days getting all the summer clothes put away and the winter clothing run through the dryer and hung up. It gets wrinkled being packed in those bags where the air is removed. If it does get warm in the afternoon, I can roll up my jeans and wear them as capris and put on my flipflops! I also got the lawn mowed this afternoon. Since we have so many leaves on the trees, I know I’ll be running the mower again to mulch them all up.
I’ll be glad to turn the clocks back. I’ve enjoyed walking early each day but now the sun isn’t up until after 7AM. So Emi and I spend half our walk in the dark. And those carefree days of putting on the harness and leash are gone. Now it’s the harness, then the coat(I’ve found her coats with the hole an inch or so from the neckline and the harness latch fits comfortably through the hole), then the leash. And Kleenex goes into my pockets and I’m ready to leave. Her little pink doggie bags are in a small cylinder that hooks to the leash , so I never have to worry about having them with us. She has such small amounts that I toss it in the toilet and flush it away, so no smelly garbage cans!
Yesterday I went up to Harrisburg to do some shopping. I ended up with nothing and I couldn’t seem to find anything I was looking for. What a waste! On the way home I decided to take I81 instead of Rt22, which I usually use, so I could set the cruise and avoid the lights. I turned onto the ramp and halfway down the ramp I notice the traffic is just setting there. I got down off the circular ramp and then I felt trapped on the straight ramp(where you yield to traffic) by many car and truck lengths. It was then I started to wonder how long would I be here? I turned on the radio but there were no reports.
A few minutes later I looked in my rearview mirror and saw a silver/gray car pull out of the traffic and onto the ramp I was on and start to back up. Well, I could do that too! So I put my car in reverse and started to go backwards on the straight ramp and when I got to where it started to curve and go uphill, I stopped. I wanted to look and see if any vehicle was coming down this part of the ramp. It wasn’t as wide as the straightaway, where I had the ramp AND the berm, which was wider than a truck. Nothing was coming, so I started up the ramp. Halfway to the top I noticed there was an opening in the fence along the ramp, so I went through there on the grass and got on the exit OFF the interstate and was now going the right direction. I still had to contend with traffic trying to get onto Rt22, which runs parallel with I81. In the end I had to take a back road down to Hershey because the traffic ended up sitting on this road too. I’m so glad I don’t have to bother with traffic everyday.
I cannot believe they are getting snow in Denver...and not a dusting either. I hope we can have longer for fall. We have loads of leaves yet that need to fall before snow. Even my zoyzia grass is still green and not brown yet. So lets put a hold on any type of winter weather...please!!
I've been turning the computer off every night since Michael left in June. And what a difference in the performance of my computer. I've lost those nasty boxes that kept popping up all over the place. And it seems to perform much faster overall.
I don't know why, but so many times when I do an entry the cursor jumps all over the place and sometimes when I hit the return button, it goes to the top of the entry. So on that note, I will close this and say.....Later!
