Hey yall! It is Friday and the weekend is almost here. We really don't have anything fun planned. We need to do some outside work. There are some plants that probably need to be put out of their misery and the pots washed and put up in the garage. It is pretty easy to see that winter is knocking at the door. We have some very pretty hanging baskets and some pots that will have to be dumped out in the woods. That's sad because they are perfectly good and healthy but are too big to be brought inside. They will freeze in the garage so I can't store them in there. Anybody want to come up and get them? I'll throw in lodging and dinner!

Yesterday I had my dental appointment to put my permanent crowns put on. My previous visit was kind of traumatic for me. Now I am no stranger to the dentist chair. But I was in the chair for 3 hours with my mouth open most of the time. I was having a hard time getting one molar numbed. This required multiple injections. And my jaw was so sore and hurt to even open for about a week. Well, I thought I would be able to be in and out in 30 minutes yesterday since I was just getting my permanent crowns on. Oh no. The sensitive molar had lost it's temporary crown twice and the second time they used a little stronger glue. Yesterday, they had a hard time getting all that glue off what was left of my molar so the permanent crown would fit on it. And since that molar is sensitive, I had multiple injections again to numb it up. I spent 2 hours in the chair yesterday. And was pretty uncomfortable later in the day. UGH! Makes me really look forward to getting new crowns next year! NOT!!!!!

I have so many things that I need to do. The yard is calling, crying, screaming, and pleading for me to come out and make it pretty again. I need to blow the leaves, rake the pine straw and mow. I would have done this already, but it rained yesterday and we didn't feel like it last weekend and, well, you get the idea. Dick says I always have an excuse. That is true. I need to mop the wood floors. I need to vacuum. I need to dust. I need to throw things away. I need to, I need to, I need to. And for everything I mentioned, I have 10 other things that I also need to do. And the bad thing about all this is that I just want to curl up with a blanket and take a nap. Now I haven't actually done that yet.....can't even remember the last time I did it, but I want to. Bad. This explains why I always say when you get the urge to clean, mop, rake, or dust, you better jump on it cause the desire can leave as fast as it came! Learn from me.....Your welcome.

The wind is blowing outside right now. The temp is in the 50's and I am trying to resist the urge to turn on the heat for just a little while. I do love heat. Except in the summer.

I would dress warm and go outside right this minute but I haven't finished the pot of coffee. Or finished visiting blogs. Or checked out my new Martha Steward Living magazine. Or.......

Tootles!
