It was a good week. I had a doctor's appt last Monday. I'll get the results today but everything should be fine. My blood pressure was on its best behavior and now that I rarely eat red meat, my cholesterol should be better. The next day there was an appreciation lunch at work, so I got to get together with my team. We had a lot of laughs. The rest of the week was pretty uneventful at work, which left my mind to roam free and focus on my bigger home projects and what I really thought I could accomplish. And, then it started to rain and it rained a couple days and we did rain dances. And, just that quickly, it was autumn here. It was great and we ended up getting about 2" and highs in the mid 90s, which is a LOT different than 107*F. Everything started to turn green again and now we'll get a small round of flowers. I'm trying to grow some fall tomatoes and in this cooler weather, they might start to set fruit.
Moving things back into the garage has had a cascading effect. There was a lot of stuff tucked around the house that needed to go to the greenhouse and a LOT of stuff in the greenhouse that just needed to be thrown away. I took down the shade cloth because of the much cooler weather and that made space for a whole shelf of smaller plants and I added the eyes to hang baskets from. Slowly everything that needs to be in there is getting moved in. I can't unpack those last boxes until I buy pegboard, and there are so many options that I'm having trouble committing.
And, then there was suit shopping. You'd have thought I was buying a bathing suit. I got very picky and disappointed quickly, but I found a suit. (Excuse the deck...see below) I hated it in the dressing room but bought it anyway and if a really dark storm hadn't blown up, we would have kept shopping. Then, I got it home and tried it on with the right shirt and it's not so bad...I also have a better pair of shoes to go with it...I hate this new trend of making the shoes really important by making the pants so narrow at the hem.
