Happy Wednesday.

Another nice start here in Md. Summer is staying with us this week, but there are already signs to next Spring. Our Pink Dogwood is already forming buds for next years colorful display.

This morning we are off to renew our Maryland driver’s license & get the “Real ID”. Next week, we’ll put paperwork in for new Passports.
My passport expired in 2013 and I didn't renew it because I decided I'd had enough of airports and travelling. I'd much rather throw everything in the car and take off around this country.
We have to renew our photo ID driving licenses every 10 years. People still with the original paper licenses don't have to do that.

It's been at least 70 years since I was in grade school - a catholic school. So, after 70 years, why did I wake up this morning humming Panis Angelicus? And the bad part is I still remember the words! ( in Latin, no less!!)
Wow, that is amazingly impressive !!! Perhaps you could use it to sing at anyone who annoyed you - they might think it was a terrible curse, and keep well away from you in the future !

Good midweek morning all.
It's bright and sunny here but cooler - as it should be.
We're half way through Sept already - 101 days until Xmas Day!!!o_O 🎄
I'll probably leave everything until the last minute again though.
Hope everyone has a good Wednesday and I'll see you later.

I think I'm going to do a bunch of Christmas shopping around the 17th because I have 30% off at my best place for my family. Kohl's. If I spend a hundred I'll get $20 in Kohl's cash and another $5 the first of the month. It really adds up. Plus they have good sales around those kind of times. My big problem is storing it until then.

I have a dogwood coming from the Arbor Day Foundation along with 2 crape myrtles and some others that I'm going to try and find homes for. Dogwood is one of my more favorite trees. There also is a Crab Apple in the collection 🤣 which I for sure am pawning off on someone anybody 😁 They are who I got my first one through. I think they like being like Johnny Appleseed 😁

Just saw the rocket take off with 4 amateur astronauts aboard. They will be up there for 3 days.
Sorry for the quality of the pictures. But my phone doesn't take good pictures at night when I zoom in.

...........and I just got excited because a formation of about 8 jets flew over my house, which is very unusual.
I wondered if it was the Red Arrow formation team but the jets were grey.
Not as impressive as a rocket though!

The shuttle launches were really cool. I have tall trees in the lot behind me. So I miss the beginning of the launch. That's when you see the orange flame.

Hey RAY. How far away is the launch site from your house? Pretty impressive glow there from those rocket engines.

Good morning all, it's a dry but cloudy day here and very warm when the sun breaks through.
Nothing exciting planned today, but lots of things I could and should be doing.
I'll probably just spend the day procrastinating! :)
Have a good day and see you later.

It's a quiet day in the CDR again, but then the US is earlier in the day than me so there's probably time for you all to have a god natter.
I managed to get a lot of procrastinating done - I might have another go at it again tomorrow!;)
It's been quite tiring though so I'm going to bid you nos da.
Take care and see you tomorrow.

Yea it is too quiet 🤫 here. I hate to see winter on it's way except maybe I'll get to talk more here. I'm a procrastinator from way back though so even though I get a few things done each day, I always feel like it's not enough. I'll be joining you anyway for another day of procrastinating whatever I can make a good enough excuse for 😁🤗

Overcast & muggy pretty much all day. We did some early morning SAMs club shopping, fueled up $60.00 (😩), and worked on a few wood things. Tested out a recipe for parmesan cheese crisps - turned out nice. Good cheesy taste, crispy. Low calorie & low carb.

Here’s another close-up of the boxie we rescued.

Check out those eyes.

Aren't those eyes beautiful. My little Daisy May had red eyes and she was for sure a girl. She laid eggs about a year after I had her. I've re-homed her but they got a unique boxie and they wanted a box turtle. I'd like to see your recipe for the parmesan cheese crisps. I'm going to try some family baskets for Christmas with homemade treats and crackers being one of the ingredients.🤗

Good morning all.
It's a grey day again here but still warm.
Friday again! Not that it makes much difference to me now but Friday evening used to be my favourite part of the week with the whole of the weekend ahead.

My wildlife camera shows that the hedgehog is still about, and the water jet seems to have reduced the cats' visits, but there is one persistent little beggar - he must commando crawl under the lens so he doesn't activate it - or he's lowering himself in from above like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible. :)

Lola is looking for his breakfast so I'd better go and see to him.
Have a good day and TTFN.

Good morning all! Busy week here so I’m really glad to ease into the weekend. We were supposed to gets lots of rain which we needed but it looks like most of it is missing us.. guess I have to go water my food plots now 🥴. Hope everyone has a great Friday!
