Wasn't planning to post this morning, but Saturday had some unforgettable highlights:

     A wonderful night's sleep with a sleeping pill, and then I got to finish the project I'd started on earlier--a hyarmi-cubs autumn sidebar image for this journal. You may notice I've switched it from the left side to the right side--that's because the old image was making it hard to view my tags page.

     I'd mentioned a few posts back that my mom made her wonderful spaghetti sauce and meatballs for me while she visited--well Saturday was the day I defrosted my first batch and had some for dinner. NOM, I say. NOM, NOM, NOM! ;D

     In the evening I went out to fertilize my tiny garden (my lantana put on quite the display for my mom's visit), and then I swept the sidewalk...and then I found my mom's missing ring! It was lying outside right by the doorstep of my front door, and it had been there for just shy of two weeks, while we both ransacked my apartment, my mom's luggage, and even looked in my car for it. What an amazing answer to prayer!

     Last but not least, to crown off the evening--around 9 pm my time the Grey Bengal PoadsTM got put up in the Windstone store--and I was around to snag one. HURRAH!!!

The Autumn sidebar is delightful. So glad to hear you got a another good
night sleep.

Happy to know you are enjoying the spaghetti and meatballs. I need to
make some for us once the weather gets cooler.

Good news on the Bengal Poads. Were you able to get the one you wanted.
I am still amazed with the finding of my ring. What a wonderful God
we have.

Glad you like it! It's getting warmer around here, but I should be able to squeeze out a third good night with a sleeping pill.

I had more today and quite enjoyed it. Thanks again for making it!

Since the PoadsTM are all different, I won't know 'who' I got until she arrives. I expect I'll like whichever one I get...and the name makes me think there might be another color variety of Bengal PoadsTM down the road, too!

And yes, I'm still as flabbergasted as you about the ring. How incredible!

Your sidebar looks like fun. It's almost enough to make me wish it was Autumn again.

Your lantana is spectacular! I love the vivid colour.

How has the weather been recently?

Thanks! Makes me want to jump in a leaf-pile myself! ;)

I'm very happy with how well that lantana has done this summer. I just have to remember that when they get big, they get thorny too.

The weather has been a dream for the locals. Sunny skies, cool nights, and not a drop of rain--perfect for the State Fair and Labor Day weekend. (Usually the state gives us crappy weather for our beginning and ending summer holidays.) A little warmer yesterday and today than I'd like, but it won't last.
