Happy October 1st!
Well, so here we are in October! it's hard to believe summer is behind us. I'm glad we escaped to the sunshine in America as there wasn't that much here at home in north-west England! Here are two more Bodega Bay photos - one of P and D flying D's new kite and one of my favourite shop in Bodega Bay - Candy & Kites. They sell wonderful kites and streamers as well as THE BEST salt-water taffy!
A bought me a couple of streamers for my birthday present (you can see one HERE)
on my gardening blog. I'd bought an identical one three years previously but it had perished after too much British wind and rain! The owners of this shop are so pleasant and friendly...if you are ever in the area go and see them! There are other kite stores in Bodega Bay but this is THE BEST!
I got my plants sorted today - well, most of them. Still one "Lily of the Nile" to find a spot for. I also put away my summer clothes and got out my winter ones. I always like to see my "other season" clothes again after 6 months absence; they look newer to me than if I'd just left them hanging in the wardrobe along with the others; It's also a good time for my twice yearly wardrobe purge of all my "mistakes" and the stuff I bought hoping it would make me look good (when of course it didn't!)I should never expect miracles but of course hope springs eternal....!
I am trying to spend less time on the computer. The trouble with broadband (DSL) is that I tend to switch the PC on first thing and leave it on. Not only is that wasteful of electricity but it eats up my day. I just stop "for a minute" to check mail; before I know it an hour has passed with nothing really to show for it.... Last Wednesday I didn't even turn on the computer until early evening and I got so much more done that day! I'll always love the Internet but I'm trying to be more focused in my use of it...less mindless surfing....LOL let's see how long that lasts!!
