Home grown tomatoes

When I let the dogs out, I picked off fall leaves that had covered my tomato plants. 

Yup, they are still alive and producing. 

Usually we have a hard frost just before Thanksgiving and it kills all my tomatoes. 

But not this year. 

We're having a mild year. So mild, I ate one of my home grown tomatoes today.

The Generosity of Strangers

Sometimes things happen that just bring a tear to your eyes.

I was shopping today, and was behind a man with his little girl. She was such a cutie with long straight brown hair and big brown eyes. Her clothes didn't quite fit her and her tights were threadbare and had a hole in them.

After she helped her dad, she turned and smiled at me then waved. I smiled and waved back. Then I realized that her work worn dad didn't have enough money for the simple necessitates he wanted to buy.

As I thought about reaching for my wallet, the woman behind me drew out a twenty and said, "Take this and lets see how much it'll cover."

After the food was paid for and they left, I turned to the woman and thank her for her generosity. I said, "I thought about doing the same thing, but you were quicker."

She said, That's okay, we've all been there haven't we?" (Meaning the father and daughter and the rough time they were going through.)

"Yes, we have." I thought about how rough my husband and I have had it off and on and how blessed we are now.

The next time, I'll be a little quicker reaching for my wallet.

Yellow Cloud Is Me

Last week, hubby had new tires put on the car, then the big dummy decided he could walk home two miles after working all night. One mile from home he calls me to come and get him. 
My daughter recently got a new car but the old one is still at the house, so I hopped in it forgetting that the pine tree has been dropping pollen like crazy for the last week. 
Well.... I'm not sure how I looked pulling out onto the road, but it must have been a show stopper. Here I am driving this old silver car covered in pollen, and its making a bright yellow cloud around my car as I go down the road.

I'm doing the Nanowrimo again this year.

I forgot to remove the Nano widget from last year. It there on the right of my blog.

What interesting is it updated itself.

You can see how much progress I've made so far.
