Isn't that the coolest planter you ever saw? I loved it the minute I laid my eyes on it.
A couple of weeks ago, we had a party at my daughter's house - combination birthdays for Corinne and her step-daughter, Amber. They all wanted to play "Bocci Ball." If you've ever seen a movie with elder Italian playing what appears to be lawn bowling, then you know what Bocci ball is. The object is to throw heavy wooden balls at a smaller ball that's been tossed out towards the opposite goal. Let me tell you, those balls are heavy! There are teams of two, and I played with my son-in-law and we kicked some butt! But even my trusty right arm couldn't save us. We finished in 2nd place. I couldn't move for two days.
I've got a fuzzy little juvenile delinquent resting on my feet. Homer is a little terrorist. He's so adorable when he's sleeping, but when he's "zizzing" around the house, he's a handful! We're not a bit sorry we got a puppy, though. It's fun watching him learn the ropes from our Katie, our older dog. He's already mastered "sit," "drop-it," "bring it," and we're working on "no-bite!" He's little baby teeth are like Parana teeth!
Fall is in the air here - although it is expected to be in the 90's again at the end of the week. Fall means shorter days, which I hate, and cooler weather, which I love!!! We only had to use the A/C about ten days this summer, opting instead to use the cooler we bought. Man, I wish we'd done that two summers ago. Our highest electric bill was under $70! Considering that just last summer it was well over $300 per month, we're thrilled!
Why is it that during the day I can think of so many things I want to talk about, but when I start typing and thinking it all evaporates?!? I guess I need to start making notes. But then I'd just forget where they are...
I'll put my thinking cap on and see what I can come up with.
Happy week, every one.
