The Best Part of Waking Up...

No...it's not Folger's in my cup...it's 8 O'Clock Italian Roast...delicious! It's another beautiful morning--sunshine and clear blue skies--such a nice change. I have just a few chores on my list today, moved over from yesterday...bring the star jasmine in to the sunporch and move the black chairs from the front porch to the back. The geraniums still look pretty spectacular, and it seems to me that last year they looked good until the first part of December. Can't decide if I need to try and overwinter them or not...it's always an experiment gone wrong. I keep them alive until late February and then just get tired of looking at them. We'll see...

I seem to need to keep myself accountable to someone about my various 'to do' lists...now that I'm an 'empty nester' it's so easy to just let things pile up and get out of hand. There's always something more interesting to do, even if it's just taking a nap or watching a DVD (or NCIS reruns...). I'm going to try and make myself accountable to the blog (and me)...so let's just see how this works out. Will there be pictures of plants on the sunporch sometime today? Will the chairs get moved?

Happy November!

I have a lot of plants that I am going to try to overwinter this year. I am going to put them in the garage. We will see how it goes come spring!

Glad to see you back at the ole blog; I have missed you and your library adventures. I didn't know 8 o'clock made Italian roast. I used to love the french roast years ago, but never see it anymore. Back in the day it was an exclusive A&P product ( at least here in New England). I will have to search, altho I doubt it could displace my Trader Joe's Bay Blend. Brings me back to San Francisco every morning!
