Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater

  If you FB, you may have a friend who shared this video, but it is amazing. I learned a bit more about growing pumpkins by watching it as well.

Another amazing feature this week, was how quickly our pool cooled down to too cold for ME once our 100+ degree weather left. Today's high was ? but at 6:48 it is still 82 degrees, so we aren't exactly having a cold snap. Sadly, the gulf water isn't cooling as quickly, fire danger is back up, no significant chances for rain in the forecast either. Still, although we miss the pool and will for several months, I bid a fond farewell to the weather from HELL!

What I hope to do on September 11, 2011

This will just be a short post tonight:
I hope I'll remember to tell all the people in my life how much I love them. If you are reading this, my love includes you.

I hope that I'll remember to pray for the families of the people lost on 9 -11 or as a result of something that happened because of it.

I hope that the choices I make Sunday and at least most other days, will be ones to help make the world a better place.

I  hope and pray that the rumor about another attack on New York on Sunday turns out to be just a rumor. But if it is true, that Americans will once again draw together.

I hope that all the people in TX who are threatened by fire, or have had their home destroyed will find a place of shelter and love. I will try to dial back my political upsets. If a fireman came to my home, I wouldn't care if he was Republican, Democrat, Tea Party or Libertarian. I'd say thank you for helping me and my family.
