RE: Exceptional Weather Comes to an End

Hang in there, Donna!  Who knows when you will be blessed with a little time
for your own passions.  I got a day "off" yesterday and somehow managed to
sandwich in about 4 hours of gardening--enough time to put in a lasagna bed
half the size I want it to be eventually.  O.K., so it will take a little
more time (another 4 hours) to get the bed balanced for it to "over winter"
and be ready for seed and whatever else I find, but it still felt pretty
good!  (Yeah, and I've got the sore muscles from toting 10 wheelbarrow loads
of compost and leaves/leaf mold and two barrows full of newspapers, but
there will be time enough to heal before I get the pleasure of digging and
working the soil again.)  

I concur on the beautiful weather the past two days, and I'm braced for the
cooler onslaught as best I can be.  I'm not looking forward to the bitter
cold and long winter ahead!  I can drive on the white stuff pretty well, but
I'd just as soon not have to.  And the hours I'm working now means that I
have to park practically 2 blocks from the building and leave later in the
evening when the evening chilly temps have begun to set in when I'm ready to
go home.  UGH!  Of such is life.  At least I have transportation and a job.

Currently 52 and rain predicted from now to Wed.... like 2 to 4 inches
worth. Warnings on tv about making sure your sump pump is working :(
Last week the wind storm damaged a few things... so not looking forward
to any more nutty weather here.... seems it has been here all summer.

Although it has not started raining here yet, up in the city proper they
are claiming it is raining already.

Trying to get all the fall projects done, but with everything happening,
just seems impossible this year. Current situation is DH father, he is
in ICU.....so of course, I am running up there which is a two hour drive
one way.

And Gene.... save those pennies and invest in a hot tub... no mature
gardener should be without one! :)

Who has pretty much given up on the gardening for the year.....but hopes
to find the daylight time to do a few more things....
