These are some of the crab apples that are falling off of the tree.  They're so huge this year.  Plus, the leaves are also falling but they usually fall early in the summer.  weird.

Blue Moon Friday, August 31, 2012 - I've never seen so many crab apples falling off the tree before this year.  Maybe it was the drought that caused it.  I don't know, but they're so big and squishy that it's difficult to walk out there.  I'm not sure what a person is supposed to do with them?
     When I went out to take this picture, Charlie Chipmunk was running around.  Maybe he likes to eat them.  That would be fine with me.  And I know the boys would LOVE that.  haha  bye, djb

Kitty cat on the deck -- picture was taken hastily through the window.

Thursday, August 23, 2012 - I was standing in the kitchen and some type of movement on the deck caught my eye.  When I looked out, I didn't see anything at first and then this guy appeared in view.
     I grabbed my camera and went over to the window, tapped lightly on the glass, then he looked at me so at least I got a picture of him although it's slightly blurry.  You still get the picture.  BIG CAT.  djb

It's raining today.  The pool's getting filled up with rain water.

Thursday, August 16, 2012 - Right before I took this picture, I looked outside and there were big, huge drops causing a bubbling up situation in the pool. It was very exciting.
    Of course, I grabbed my camera to get a picture of it.  By the time I got outside, it was done doing that and turned into a minor drip.  So glad I mowed the lawn yesterday.  Well, except for that little part behind those evergreens in this photo.
    OMG!!!!  I JUST this very second noticed that the leaves on Gene's trees in his front yard (right across the street) have started turning orangey-red.  WOW!!!   And tomorrow, the high temperature is going to be 72 degrees.  yikes, djb  This is not good.

This photo of the Andrew and Jarrett's crosses was taken Sunday afternoon (August 12th) on the way back from DeKalb.

Tuesday, August 14, 2012 - It's really hard to believe that this month is almost HALF OVER!!!  Where did the time go and what did I do??  It seems as though the drought this summer totally screwed up any sort of sense of normalcy to my usual routine.
     Most summers, I mow the lawn every week.  But this year, there were weeks that the grass didn't grow because it was fried.  Although the weeds seemed to flourish.  I'm beginning to think that we should all embrace the weeds because they're never going away.  haha
     Okay, it's time to check on the washer.  Gotta take care of business.  see ya later, djb

Every year, I get a flowerpot full of coleus in honor of Grandma O'Malley.  She called them foliage. 

Sunday, August 12, 2012 - It was supposed to be sunny today but it's NOT.  I've been working on my three Sunday crossword puzzles. It's supposed to help your brain.  Who knows if that's working or not?  Certainly not me.  It's 11:30 a.m and it's time to go and do some chores.  I'm pretty sure some of the flowers are dry.  see ya around, djb

Here are the "surprise lilies" that I took a photo of about an hour before the storm blew through yesterday.  It's always a surprise when they show up -- thus, the name.
On August 1st, I had to get a photo of the full Sturgeon moon.  It was so gorgeous in person.  This was taken at 7:25 p.m.
