Random Thoughts

  1. The Red Buds have sprouted their seed pods!
  2. After a week or two of cool, beautiful, fall-like weather, we are back to the normal August heat and humidity.  It was nice while it lasted!
  3. No nascar this weekend.  I know, I know...most of you just don't get that feeling of withdrawal like I do.... haha.
  4. There's a full moon tonight!  I'll have to go outside with my camera after dark!
  5. If you're in the market for an antique French Provincial chair, I have one going into the shop soon.  Just need to edit some photos. Lovely needlepoint roses.  Tempted to keep it! 
  6. After the endless rains of spring and early summer, my tomato plant has recovered and it looks like I might actually get a few tomatoes after all.  By a few, I mean less than 5...haha....if this heat stays through September, it would help a lot!

We've had Star with us three months as of today!
She's still recovering, still improving!
Twinkle, twinkle, little Star!

This morning, I had coffee in bed with this guy
before starting the day.

Tom, Is That You?

Either Tom grew a lot since last week or
this is an older member of the family!
Either way, it was fun to see this tree frog
peeking in the window as I sat at my desk!
