Leaves are beginning to fall. Quite likely, the extreme heat prompts trees to start shedding their leaves. That isn’t scientific, that’s just my speculation. I watched leaves falling as I enjoyed coffee while “rocking” on my patio. I’d watered the plants and started a fire in the burn barrel. Any time I have a fire, I have the garden hose nearby, and “old lady” keeping a watchful eye. The TV meteorologist’ are commenting that slightly cooler weather is on the horizon. ~~ Blame my mood on the heat(??) but I’m weary of “independent living”!! I’ve begun an Internet search for an apartment in some far-away city. (Livingston, Texas, is definitely NOT a favorable option.) ~~ FYI: “Owner” was making too many demands so “the lot” I looked at, and wrote about, and displayed pictures, is history. What? Why? He wanted a “quickie” deal and a handshake which my lady-friend-lawyer advised against.
