mums (free clip art)
The weather is turning a bit cooler and the mums are blooming everywhere. Even some of the trees are beginning to show signs of changing colors. In other words, fall is here. Time to decorate for the season.
Michelle and I are planning a special weekend together. First of all, we’re going to build a Scare Crow to put in the front yard. With it I have a bail of straw that we’ll stick him into and put a beautiful mum on each side of him. Mamaw grew some pumpkins in her garden so we’ll get a couple of them and put them in front of the bale of straw.
IF there are leaves falling, we’ll collect them and make a book of all the different leaves we find. As more fall, we’ll keep collecting ones we don’t already have and colors of each we don’t have. Then we’ll look up each type of leaf and label them so we can learn what the different trees are in our yard. There’s a lot to learn about the different trees like which ones give off acorns or other types of nuts and seeds.
Halloween will be here before you know it so Michelle and I are going to take an old white sheet I have and make little ghosts to put in the dogwood tree when it gets closer to Halloween. I don’t like putting out a bunch of ‘scary’ stuff but little ghosts aren’t what I call scary. Anyway, we’re going to have a fun and relaxing weekend together, at home, next weekend. Hope you have a good one too.
My sister wants me to try this deodorant she just started using. I’ve told her repeatedly that I hate using something that is not also an antiperspirant! I hate to sweat! She gave me a container of the brand she is using, and told me that it is all natural. I understand that she likes things to be all-natural, and I’m fine with that, but if it doesn’t stop me from sweating, I don’t want to use it! I don’t know how else to explain it to her. What would you do?
I keep getting all these darn credit card offers in the mail. I don’t want to mess up my credit this early in my life, when I’m just starting to build it so I figured I better check them out real good before I decided which one to get. Grandma told me to check out a place online called Credit Cards Club. She said they tell you whatever you need to know about just about any credit card you might be looking at or thinking about getting. Just because they advertise on TV as a good credit card doesn’t make it so, or so Grandma says.
A friend (and after you hear this you might wonder about my friend) suggested I try an online dating service. Now this is someone I have known for about 9 years now and she knows me good enough to know that I’m not so sure I could do something like that. I know that there are some good online dating sites out there but I also know there are some real nuts that slip through the cracks too. I almost fell over when she said that she met her fiance through one of them. I had no idea at all. I just might have to rethink all of this.
I’m not above reading articles about improving your relationship or what makes a good relationship. I found such an article recently. I think the article makes four excellent points that for some reason, there are some people that just don’t seem to understand. The first one is to be your ideal spouse or partner which ever the case may be. The second one is to think before you speak. I think that is extremely important because you can’t do a rewind and take out those things you said that you shouldn’t have.
I always learn something from articles like this and hope and pray that if and when I do find someone special, I’ll remember what it takes to have a good relationship.
