Thursday’s Ramblings

I’ve been out of sorts this past week…I’ll just be rambling around today, if you don’t mind.

It’s hot…it’s mid-September…and it’s still in the 90’s! Stupid weather. WHERE IS MY 70’S???!!! Fall is around the corner and it’ll be in the 90’s!

My garden is winding down…peppers and cucumbers are all that is left. And I’m giving them away every other day.

Last night I used up the last 6 pounds of tomatillos and made 4 quarts and 3 pints of salsa…with some leftover for my husband to eat with tortillas. This time I roasted everything (tomatillos, onions, garlic, Hatch green chiles) and then added some cilantro. If you read this Greg…you’ll be getting some soon.

This morning I went to the eye doctors for the first time in 12 years…was already to pick out cool glass frames and was told all I needed was +0.75 reading glasses! DAMN! But my sister found a great funky pair of purple Foster Grants for me at Walgreens during lunch. 🙂 Now I need to go to the Dollar Store to pick-up a few cheapos to have in different spots…bedside, sewing machine, beading table, living room.

The Reno Air Races are going on this week, am hoping to see the Blue Angels fly by…but nothing yet. Guess they are staying north. 😦 I LOVE those guys.

At the Wilbur D. May museum at Rancho San Rafael park there is an exhibit that ends this Sunday, 20 Sept 09 that I need to get to! Sherlock Holmes and the Clock Tower Mystery: You are invited to solve the Mystery of the Clock Tower yourself!

October 28th, 1888 – “A man was murdered late last night in Croydon Clocktower. PC Benjamin was called to the scene by Mr. Robert Wilson, the caretaker. Mr. Wilson, had gone up to the Clock Room at the top of the tower just after eleven, because the clock had not struck the hour properly. He was shocked to discover the body of a man lying face-down with his head in the mechanism, having been cold-bloodedly shot in the back of the head. The police have not disclosed the name of the victim, except to say that he was not a local man. Scotland Yard have been called in to investigate, and would welcome any person with information leading to the solution of the crime to come forward to Sherlock Holmes and the Clock Tower Mystery.”

I need to pick-up some winter fertilizer from Lowes for the lawn. It’s time to get it fed and ready for sleepy-time. I’m also thinking I’ve cut back the watering time too soon, as it seems the 90’s are staying with us for longer than usual. Grrrr.

I put up those Halloween Trick-O-Treat candy bags up on Etsy…the first I’ve added to my store since this time last year! I didn’t realize it was that long. I still had a sign up that I was taking time off for Christmas! Sheesh.

Speaking of Etsy…isn’t Amos the cutest?! I think he’s just adorable. He’s from Junker Jane ART AND CRAFT from RECYCLED GOODS.

I need to look into a new sewing machine. The reason I’m “sorta outa sorts” is partly because of that. My beautiful Janome 6500P was destroyed…and I don’t quite have a grasp on the old Singer yet. (Wiping tears away…I still cry about my Janome)

Need to stop off and get some bacon and cheddar so I can make Pioneer Woman’s Delicious Hominy Casserole tonight for dinner…me thinks I’ll do a half and half casserole (add potatoes and eggs to one side for breakfast).

Thought I’d share a picture of the guy out back with the pink hard hat… 🙂 He’s not hard to find, and I bet no one steals his hat!

    Sharon beat me. What happened to your Janome???? You can’t drop a bomb like that and run off. Get back here. You got some ‘plainin’ to do, Lucy!!

    Looking again at your pictures…

    I bet that guy painted his hat pink so no one would bother it. No borrowing it, touching it!! It is safe.

    Or maybe…

    What contest did he lose!!
