September Fades Away...
I realize my photos have absolutely nothing to do with my blog title. The days are passing so quickly and I am not keeping up with my desire to post more often. The calendar is showing me another month is quickly fading away. Just like the greens of Summer which are now turning golden, and sunset and crimson we are Falling into Autumn. It will be time for Mr. C and I to take our annual Cruise in Clara (our trusty vintage Rambler) to view the gorgeous Fall Foliage colors.
However, I have been busy with keeping my house and outdoor chores current. We actually had a showing this week and remain hopeful that our "one buyer" will find us soon. In the meantime we are preparing for another Winter here.
I asked Mr. C to help me draw a circle with twelve spokes because I was having great difficulty doing so on my own. Math and Engineering are not even in my realm of knowledge...Mr. C is the double Engineer and therefore I knew he could do it. Oh Dear! He took me to his "white board" and it became lesson time. Yikes! After a while of me trying to listen and really show interest he brought out his "tools of the trade" from his high school and college years. I LOVE these tools and begged him to never get rid of them. The white handles are ivory...SWOON!
After a couple hours Mr. C did in fact draw me a proper circle with twelve spokes and I was elated. Before I could snatch the paper he did exactly what I knew he would do. Yes! He ripped it up and told me I could use his tools to draw my own. Gulp! Thank goodness I did pay attention and it was very fresh in my mind. He left the room and I was able to actually produce the proper 1" circle and the required twelve spokes I needed. I was more than proud of my accomplishment and showed my teacher. "Well done!" I thanked him for showing me how and letting me use his treasured tools.
You will have to wait until another post to see what I needed this for. Can anyone venture a guess? P.S. The image in the lower left is the hand drawn one I did before lessons and you can see it is way off center. Bad!
Our weather has been cooler and lovely. The Fall colors are happening all over town. I would welcome some rain. Until then I shall hand water more of the lawn as it is still dry even with our nightly drip watering. The new sod really gets thirsty!
I am enjoying seeing what everyone is creating and decorating. There will be no decorating here while we are listed. The brokers do not want anyone offended. Our world is complicated!
Blissfully Falling into Autumn...<3
