Yesterday was our "lazy day". Well, not so lazy, actually. We traveled the 20 miles over to Merkel to watch our granddaughter cheer for a junior pee wee football team. It was deliciously cool earlier in the morning, but by the time we got settled on the metal bleachers under the midday sun, it had warmed considerably! There were moments when it felt like we were roasting alive as we sat and watched the game and visited with Bonnie. We sipped our Big Gulps and munched on Fritos from the snack bar - and survived the heat. By the time we stopped at a small diner and split a hamburger and an order of fried pickles after the game, we were wiped out. Naps in front of the television, listening to the Ryder Cup were definitely in order and well deserved!
This morning, we grabbed our list and headed out to do our weekly grocery shopping. This is always a "date" for us - and we try to make it fun. We browsed the pallets of assorted pumpkins out front of HEB before heading inside. We picked up another couple to add to the collection growing on the front porch.
After giving the house a cursory cleaning, I drug out some more seasonal decor to layer in. The last couple of years, I have picked up some cute reproduction vintage Halloween items and it was fun to shift things around in search of the perfect arrangement while the husband continued watching the Ryder Cup.
I had planned to take a slew of photos on my iPhone, only to get sidetracked by the issue that my phone's storage is just about full. Deciding how to handle that seem to eat up an inordinate amount of my time this evening. In short, I found that I couldn't power up my laptop and download my phone photos because the power supply seems to be fried. (Considering that I haven't turned it on or used it in several months, I guess this was something that was just waiting to be discovered, at some point....) Thankfully, I have my trustworthy little Surface Pro tablet to keep me connected. I just don't want to try to load it up with the tons of photos that need to come off the phone. It is a dilemma, to be sure. But, something I should be able to get resolved so I can get back to taking more photos. Either that, or I will have to break out my Canon digital camera, that sits largely ignored these days!
So, the weekend has wound down and it's nearly time to turn in and try to get a good sleep before the new week begins. Sunday evenings always seem to feel a little melancholy, like the end of a vacation when you know you have to go back to work. Don't get me wrong - I like my job. I truly do! But, I love being off on the weekends and wish they lasted just a bit longer. Can you relate?
Hope to have the photo issue resolved soon because I would love to share some new photos with you! Our little cottage has seen some good changes this spring and summer. And beyond that, there is so much to see and share. Hey, maybe I will just get my "real" camera out and keep it handy!!!
Peace to you and yours....
