Happy October!

One of my fall creations a few years back

The tides have turned and it feels like the season we are in if just for a while. We will be in the 80s today and the rest of the week, but it has been in the 60s and 70s for highs and we tied a low of 40 this past weekend with some 30s around. I actually turned on the REAL oven this week-a first since May and cooked on the stovetop, too. This is the type of weather I need. All of those things that have been waiting for me to get to were coming into focus and I could actually begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but wait… Do you ever do something and at that very second know you should not have done it? That is what happened a week and a half ago when I was stretching one morning. ‘Pop’ was the sound I heard AND felt radiating down my backbone. I have been paying for it dearly, and I sure do regret it. Can I please take it back?

While I have been taking it easy and on strong pain meds (maybe not enough of them), I have been switching to Google Reader. After wordpress changed a bunch of things, the blogs I subscribed to were not showing up in the reader-some would show up late and others never did. I found this to be a real hassle and terribly frustrating. I tried other readers. Yahoo wasn’t any good either-probably worse than wordpress. Then I discovered google reader! It’s love. I can categorize the blogs that I follow and mark them unread if I need to go back to reread – almost like email. Life is much easier and no hassles! I am sure the rest of you knew about this, so shame on you for not spreading the word to me (or maybe I’m just stuck in the stone-age and did not hear you). Anyway, I am so pleased!!!! Well, there is that matter of PAIN, but I guess I cannot have everything.

October is one of my favorite months of the year. I just love this time of year! So, Happy October and Happy Fall!

Happy Gardening and may your fall garden yield beautiful fruits!
