Today turned out to be a beautiful day, when I was fully expecting cloud and drizzle. I love it when that happens. Adam's shooting a wedding today, so I had the boys to myself. I took them to a playground for most of the afternoon, and when Thomas was napping, Phillip and I played games. Including Mille Bornes, which you should get. It's super fun.
Odds and ends:
I have never grown sunflowers successfully until this year. A blue jay has been helping himself to plenty of seeds, which is fun to watch. That is the lone survivor after hurricanes and other windy weather events. Anyone know the best way to save some seeds?
In other yard news, our oak tree has acorns! Neither of us remember this ever happening in the six and a half years that we've lived here. They are so. cute. P and I are going to make some felted balls and glue the little hats on. Adorable.
Those gorgeous maple leaves on the table were scavenged when I locked myself out of my car in the middle of nowhere and was waiting for CAA to come and rescue me on Thursday. It's a ridiculous story (the thing that I wanted from the trunk was actually in the front seat all along), but all's well that ends well. I still arrived at my student's appointment on time, and it wasn't raining while I waited. A very kind lady in a silver Dodge Caliber stopped and let me use her phone to call for roadside assistance. Thank you, kind lady!
Lastly, I'm either having a reaction to an antibiotic I've been taking this week (that's another story, ugh), or I'm coming down with something very unpleasant. I am soooo sore all over - it hurts to move or be touched, and I have a fever. I'm waiting for our telehealth nurse to call me back so I'll know what to do. In the meantime, I'm so thankful for usually being so healthy! It's so easy to take for granted.
I hope that you have a very healthy weekend. Enjoy those fall colours - they won't last long!
