Still in the 90's here-no surprise really for this area of Missouri. On years when we have had a very hot summer-like this year-then it will remain warm in September even til mid October sometimes.
It is cooler in the mornings-which feels good, the black walnuts are falling all over the place, the number of those little hummingbirds have increased this week-as those that have started migrating have found my feeders.
I am relieved I passed my vehicle inspection so I could buy new stickers for my plates for my car. I had no safety issues, but I am having two things that need to be fixed, and wasn't sure if that would effect the inspection-it didn't. I wasted a month on one place in the town over from me. When I would check back each week about the part, he tells me he will check on it. Never once called me back about the part I need-or gave me an estimate on new tires for Larry's vehicle. So am done with that nonsense. I found someone closer to where I live for the inspection and they also do auto work-his daughter does the maintenance type work they told me and I am to call back this week-so am pleased so far-very friendly staff, and they had a huge friendly dog checking everyone out lol
I drove on to the county seat (where the Wal mart big box store is too) and got my renew stickers for my plates. I asked the clerk how soon can I get my new drivers license as it expires next month-oh right now if you want to. Wow so I studied what I needed to real quick and now have a new drivers license coming. That was a good morning for me-haha.
I found this pretty photo on Pinterest
On a bummer note I baked us up a batch of gluten free chocolate chip cookies last night-and discovered my oven does not work-temperature too hot for what it is set for and doesn't hold a temperature lower either-sigh. I was able to get the cookies baked with only the first batch a bit too brown. Such a bad time of the year not to have a working oven. For now I will just deal with it as we have projects going that are more important.
I have been back to working on the rock project again-being careful-no carrying the rocks so far. I had an area where I needed to dig through the soil looking for concrete chunks and rocks-and ended up with a huge pile. So many rocks to get moved though-I will get it done-just much slower than I had anticipated for this project-I thought by now I would be ordering plants and getting them in the ground. Larry tells me I am Old now-thanks Larry haha
Enjoy the rest of your week-are you ready for fall too.
Oh I received some very fun happy mail last week from Iris-I will post photos soon. Thank you Iris.
