It just started raining. I was walking out the French doors to take photos when I saw that the rain had begun.
I’m kind of running on gas fumes this morning. Charlie was up quite a bit of the night.
I’ve kind of learned to sleep a minute or two in the chair looking out over the patio. But I have to be vigilant that he doesn’t bark and wake the neighbors.
Last night I watched a few episodes of “The Five”. “The Five” is a British crime drama television series, created by crime author Harlan Coben. Seems it only has one season, so it shouldn’t take me long to watch this one.
I’m watching that show in the bedroom and “The Fall” in the living room.
I haven’t watched this much TV in years!
The premise of the show is these 5 childhood friends, who were all out in the woods playing one day. One of the boy’s little brother was with them. But they sent him away. He was never seen again.
Another of the boys became a police officer and wants to solve the case, as his father had worked on it when it first happened. But now his father is old and sick and having to be spoon fed.
There seems to be some possibility that the little missing boy, Jessie, might still be alive, as his DNA was found at a crime scene 20 years after he went missing.
Charlie just wanted outside but the rain was coming down fast.
Ivy is playing after she had her breakfast. She has about four leaves off my lipstick plant next to the French doors. No worries, it isn’t toxic to animals.
This is the lipstick plant. It sends up bright red flowers that are narrow like a lipstick.
I haven’t really been able to enjoy my patio garden much this year. Just the spring months really. Then summer weather was upon us and the plants were quickly petering out and it was too hot to go out.
I am really disappointed at the small yield I got from my vegetable plants. Not one good vegetable came from them. The vegetables were either tasteless or withered up from the heat.
I will have to rethink if I want to grow vegetables next year, because the weather is so unpredictable now.
Yesterday I took down some of the farmhouse type paintings off the living room and dining room walls. I will show you what I’ve done in a few days when I’ve gotten farther along.
I was just ready for a new look.
