We are about getting to the end of sunflower season.
A pretty bouquet for the dining room table
and then we are going to tackle a project in the kitchen.
Don't commit to thinking about something quick and fast
because we don't work that way.
It may be tomorrow or it may be months from now!
It isn't a big project,
but I think I will like it
and I hope you do too.
The Captain brought home some very long stemmed sunflowers.
Usually, I tend to trim any flower to a shorter length
as that is how I usually like to arrange them,
but I left these alone and added
some of the lime light hydrangeas from the garden.
When the lime lights started blooming
they didn't seem as full and lacy as usual,
but as they matured
I think they look pretty good.
I don't know yet if I will let these dry
as I have pitchers full already
but each year, I say
I am going to throw out the old and bring new ones in...
...but the old ones have retained
their great shape and soft colors
and I hate to get rid of them.
I think I will take next week off
and maybe get that project in the kitchen,
at least, started.
Kai has been experiencing
some health problems
and he has been in for tests.
Come to find out he is diabetic.
We have started him on insulin
and will know in two weeks if they can adjust the dosage appropriately.
He seems to be handling it
really well so far,
and we are finding it is not hard
giving him the two shots required daily.
We have changed his diet and he likes the new food, so that is a plus.
We have to watch him like a hawk as he can't control his bladder.
That is a down side so far,
but when they get him adjusted, hopefully, that will stop.
We are just beginning on this journey
and will learn as we go.
We are having beautiful fall like weather these past few days
so we are enjoying it.
in a late evening snack.
Can you see the autumn leaf?...
and oh, so, good
dipped in peanut butter.
Hope you all
the waning days of summer.
