What’s new?

(111:  In bloom.  Photo © 2009 by Robin)

When we returned home after our trip to Colorado, the sunflowers were blooming in all their bright and shining glory.  I don’t think I’ll be taking as many photos of them this year as I did last year (unless I can find a new way to approach them).  What that likely means is I’ll take a hundred or so instead of two hundred or so.

The weather has been unusually cool.  It feels more like late October than September.  It’s supposed to warm up later in the week.

I haven’t been out to the garden since we returned home.  I have no idea what’s happening out there.  Perhaps I’ll hobble out there sometime today.  I’m sort of back to square one with the back and hip pain, and having trouble moving and walking.

My mother is back in the hospital.  She fell and broke her hip.  Things are not going well for her right now.  All thoughts, prayers, and good wishes will be greatly appreciated.  She’s going into surgery this afternoon.

I started posting at Bountiful Healing again.  I need to be back in that space right now.

And that, folks, is about it from the Bogs.  If anything interesting happens, I’ll be sure to let you know.


P.S.  The Flying Pig Saga continues and ends in the post below this one.

    The individual flowerets look like a nest full of open bird beaks waiting for a worm.

    Glad your Mom is doing okay. Sorry to hear your back is messed up again. Your healing will be quicker cuz you know what to do for yourself this time round.
