I felt that this month flew by. It was good, weather wise, in the first half of the month, and then we got enough rain to last us the entire fall later in the month. I did two stints of supply teaching - one of them was actually in my old classroom with the kids I taught last year. It was so nice to see them!
Husband has been very busy with the pool house (a big raised pergola-type structure) doing cement work and creating kind of Chippendale sections below the rails. The pool is now officially closed for the season (but we really hadn't been in it for weeks - too cold). Husband does all that with a little help from me.
I got the latest Louise Penny novel from the library on a 14 day hold (because it's brand new and in high demand). No worries though because I finished it in a day. It is called The Madness of Crowds and she did put some "Covid" into it, in that the novel is set post-pandemic and looks back a bit, but that is not the main focus of the book, which is good in my opinion. It was very thought provoking and a bit uncomfortable at times, but I always see that as a mark of a good writer.
I have emptied all of my outdoor pots and planters. I am going to try to save my canna lily tubers (bulbs?) for next year. Any suggestions on the best way to do that would be appreciated, otherwise I'm going to let them dry out and shake off excess soil and wrap them in newspaper and put them in the crisper of our second fridge (beer fridge as most Canadians refer to them).
I have been writing down books that people have mentioned in their blogs for their "fall reading" and I'm about to go on the library's website to see if I can order any of them. Thanks to all for your suggestions.
Murphy recently had his surgery to be neutered (or to calm the hell down, as Scooter may think of it) and he came out of it with flying colours. The vet tech said he should be kept inside and calm for two weeks. I thought, "not likely!" and we managed to keep him in for two days until he and us could take it no longer. He's fine. I'm still waiting for him to calm down and stop being a pain in the neck for Scooter.
Really, nothing terribly exciting is going on, but I thought I should prove I'm still alive. Here's looking forward to a good October.
