It's Friday the 13th

I'd never heard the one about the penny
and I thought the black cat had to cross my path...?

Finally, some Autumn colour!

The foliage is running two to three weeks behind normal!
And our Violets have begun to flower for the second time.
We've lived here 33 years and it's never happened before. Crazy!

Next Year's Community Garden

Root*Center*Son is going to see if the town would like to use part of this field that he owns 
for a Community Garden. That white building is the Town Hall, next door to his house, 
so the Garden would be near parking and facilities. 
Plus, nearby a new park and ride and bus stop is being created.

It's here.

Via Meteorologist Sean Parker:  Sky look a little hazy/smokey? Smoke (brown blobs on the black map) from fires west of us has found its way into the northeast. Map source:

In loving memory of my grandniece Jillian

Jillian was struck by a car one year ago today and ultimately did not survive.
Next Monday, I am going to visit Jillian's grave with her Mom.

Unicorn Cake!

                   Grandad: "Grammie is going to have a birthday. We should get her a cake."
                 Grandson (age 4): "With trains on it!"

                 Grandad: "Would you like trains on your birthday cake?"

                 Grandson: "Yeah!"
                 Grandad: "What do you think Grammie would like on her birthday cake?"
                 Grandson (thoughtfully): "Probably unicorns."

 As soon as I heard it, I thought how I wasn't even going to have a cake 
(I don't mind a little cake with my ice cream  )
but suddenly a cake became a must, with a unicorn on top!
Oh my gosh, I love that bright, sweet little boy!! ğŸ’œ

So, I actually got that very unicorn
but you'll need to picture it 
on a chocolate cake with raspberry filling
and maybe some rainbow piping or sprinkles on top.  
Plus!  I got unicorn headbands for the grands to wear at the party.  
LOL!  Can't wait!! ğŸ˜ƒ

Watching Irma

So, have you been following news of the hurricane in the Atlantic?  

This could be as bad as Houston, in many ways.  Check out these graphics, then meet me below.

Latest satellite image: "Here's lookin' at you, kid."

So, the 5th largest Category 5 hurricane on record is marching across the Caribbean, and it is still intensifying.  If it increases by just 5mph, it will tie with the strongest hurricane in recorded history, Hurricane Allen in 1980.  In the first graphic it looks like the darn thing is going to go into the Gulf of Mexico, where the waters are extra warm and the result cannot be good.  But, there are two Highs that may cause the hurricane to turn.  It could very well rake through Florida and beyond.  That is, at the moment, the most likely scenario.  But there are other possibilities too.  We'll know a lot more as each day passes.  Meanwhile, here is a very helpful video that explains it well.  Mind you, this is already slightly outdated.  I think a turn out to sea is now off the table.  But this definitely bears watching.  And keep saving your pennies.  Send half to flooded people and half to people fighting fires (Montana and more).  I sure wish we could share weather as needed!
