Autumnal Equinox came and went on Wednesday.  Booger wouldn't allow me to download pics.  Grrrr.  I have since moved my Booger stuff over to Chrome, where it seems to be working fine.  Hmmmm.  It must know that it's still 100˚, so why bother post about fall???  (Above is a postcard from Liberty of London, sigh.)

Still seems like it's still summer, except for the fact that the air is a lot dryer.  You know I love that!  Humidity?  Pa-tewy!   I have one lone bloom on my azalea.  Poor baby.  Ugh, and look at all those dandelions!  I am so allergic to them, I just let them grow--until I spray them down with salt water! 

Window boxes are still in full bloom.  I just want to rip them out and refill them with mums.

Frankie has been my writing companion.  He sits under my desk all day and even sleeps upstairs on most nights (doors closed, of course).  Bella is getting closer and closer to him.  I think she wants to play.  I don't think Frankie is quite ready for that, yet.  Day by day, right? 
And speaking of day-by-day, I can hardly believe this photo was taken almost exactly a year ago.  Who could imagine that she would be gone within a month's time. I miss her so deeply, words are not enough.  Of course, I still have my moments of melancholy, but I am doing so much better.  She is in almost every one of my dreams.  I don't know if that is bad or good.  Two nights ago, I dreamed that she came back to life, all nonchalant like.  All I could think of was going to get her some chicken nuggets and feeding her!  Too crazy.  Aren't dreams just the weirdest?

Okay, y'all, I promised an after photo of my Brazilian Blowout.  OMG!  It is SO straight.  (Before photo left.)   Now I know what people with straight hair go through.  No thank you!  Hahahahaha.  Us womenfolk are never happy, are we?  Thank goodness, it washes out.  I'm counting the days.  Yea, it looks good once I get out of the shower and let it dry naturally (can't blow dry it, it gets way saggy); but by the end of the day?  UGH!  It looks like a limp rag.  Ok, there has to be a happy medium, doesn't there???? Lawdy me.  Help Larz!!!!

All I can say is, I sure am happy it's Friday!  Yay.

No wonder we're not getting any heat over here, you have it all! lol Just boggles my mind how hot your temperature is still. I still have petunias blooming (hardy little buggers) but that's it. Everything else was taken care of by the frost we had on a few mornings! Sigh.

I remember when you first posted that picture of your mom and as you say, it is hard to believe it's been a year ago already since it was taken. My dad has been gone for 32 years and I still dream of him at times!!

What a shame you don't like your hair straight like that. I love it when I flat iron mine, it's so much easier to manage. It's so thick, it never goes limp! lol xoxo

Time does flow by fast... Incredible!

Happy autumn!

I have frizzy hair and would never want it straight. It is so much easier to take care of and never looks flat/saggy. ;-P

We're not getting any autumn weather yet either....still HOT.

As for your hair, we always want what we don't have. I have stick straight hair and would kill for your curls! I would hate to think of all the $$ I spent over the years to try to get curly hair. I finally gave up and cut it short and spiky. I think yours looks great either way.

Awh,,dawlink friend,,I do love your curls and am quite envious of them. Hey,,it's cool weather now. Have had the windows open all week-end. Loving it,,just wish I could get rid of this crud!!!
Miss You!

Oh, Rosemary -- what I wouldn't give to be able to dream about my parents and Stimpy every single night. I envy you. Do you feel that anniversary coming on at times? I always do. And holidays.

Love the Liberty pattern and your overflowing window boxes!

Looks pretty likely I'll be in Nashville in mid-January. Don't know about schedule yet, but it's looking good! I'll keep you posted!
