Foggy Morning

 The top picture is across the road, the meadow. I can see why my nose has been so drippy and why I sneeze so hard. Goldenrod! Well, too blah to take pictures, so I gave Tacky some loving as long as I was out there . I hung around, waiting for sunrise.
I think this is it. The fog has lifted some. I imagine DH hated the drive in to work this morning. I don't know if you can see 3 spiderwebs in the tree in the foreground, but you better believe I am going to stay clear of it.

We had a nice surprise yesterday. J came for a visit with his wife. She made us a delicious peach cobbler, fresh out of the oven. It was scrumptious with vanilla ice cream on top. Mmm-mm!

We need to get a gate on the ramp to the deck. One of the neighbor's dogs has already decided to mark the deck. He/she pooped on it! I know it wasn't the big white dog, not that he wouldn't do that, he did the patio big time, last year. Thank heaven DH had it sealed already.

Y'all have a great day, night, whatever. I'm going to bed soon, no sleep last night. I watched the first part of the PBS Vietnam story, and well, one thought led to another and DH was getting up.

Passing the time

As if I didn't have anything to do, I thought I would get my legs stretched out on the bed to help with the circulation in my feet. I thought I could park in bed part of the day and color. I started looking at coloring books for adults on Amazon. Wow, I didn't know how popular those color books are! I had a bit of trouble deciding just what to order. I ordered 3!

 Do any of you do this? Know anyone that does? What do they use for the colors? Gel pens, watercolor markers, permanent markers, or colored pencils? Is one preferable over the other? I have colored pencils, but I'm really not a fan, although they might be better as my hands do shake. I don't know. I thought it might help me concentrate on controlling that as long as I was stretching the old veins.

Seeing sky, seeing sun, life is good!
