Happy Fall

Happy Fall to Y'all...(even though it's not officially Fall, it feels like it here)....I love this season!
I'm the happiest at this time of year (cept for my alleVrgies :-( (Oh, just for you info. I just heard on the news that it's also "Wife Appreciation Day", just saying.....).

I've been cleaning up my garden and getting ready to batten down the hatches for winter...since I planted a load of perennials this summer and want them to survive. I decided to trim my hedge that runs along one side of my house....and.................a few days later find my arms itching and welting up......POISON effing IVY!!!! I knew it was there but yet forgot it was there when I was cutting up the hedge (is that like cutting up a rug?) I was really into zip zip zipping with the hedge trimmer and completely forgot about it. Damn.....it's real ugly too and itchy as all hell. Oh well.

On a lighter note, I am making reservations to take a cruise in the Greek Islands in October!
I feel it's time to get away. Up until now, I just didn't have the travel urge. I just wanted to stay home. But with time and good friends it feels like a darkness has lifted and I'm ready to come back into the light!!! SHINE ON!

Peace

I'm so happy to hear that you are ready for light and life again! I love Fall, too, but commiserate on the poison ivy. I get it, too, and its nasty sisters poison oak and poison sumac without even touching them. UGH.

I hope it goes away soon, before you're ready to go away. The Greek Islands will be gorgeous - I'm excited just thinking about it. Can I stowaway in your suitcase?
