Missing Summer Already
If the Bengals are playing a pre-season game tonight, and they are, then fall is truly on its way. Our Friday at the "Downtown Park" will probably be our last visit this summer. I miss summer already, and it's still here. Cooler than usual, but still here.
Yesterday I was admiring the new cucumber vines, and this morning they were chomped. Someone suggested cucumber beetles, but I don't think so. Beetles wouldn't have knocked over the pot of Gerbena daisies nearby. I wish that my neighbors would plant a few goodies so the critters wouldn't always come to my house.
I've been wishing for a little table to put beside my bed, just big enough for my phone and my glasses and Kindle. On my way out of the grocery store a few days ago, I spotted boxes of round glass-topped tables done in flower designs. I put my groceries in the car and went back in and got a turquoise and purple one. Reduced to $10. Perfect, and if I get tired of it I can put it on my porch. It was designed for porches anyway.
