So Mercury went retrograde on Oct. 21 and has been slapping me around ever since. Remember how much trouble I had posting that day? A sign of things to come. Me and the internet and this computer having been having at it ever since. Internet for 5 minutes then no internet then internet then no internet, ARGH! The Husband did a shutdown and reboot(?) of all things computer and internet related that has given me back internet for now. The question is will it last? Retrograde doesn’t end until November 10. So no starting new things, no signing contracts, no buying new cars, expect delays in travel, expect anything to do with communications to fritz out, got the picture? I am told that revisiting old projects, sorting paperwork, cleaning out clutter, organizing, and regrouping are good ideas till everything settles.
Another bit of ‘fun’ was an intestinal virus that came to visit last weekend. I still feel like all my ‘go juice’ got drained away. When I can sleep, I’m hitting 10 – 11 hours at a clip. *sigh*

Life At Our House
Not much to tell. It’s been a whole lot of nothingness this week. I did, however, get in the mood for food.
Out In The Yard
When The Husband grabbed a couple of hours to mow, he found a wee surprise under one of the flower pots.
It was such a nice surprise to know my yard is safe enough for these guys to live in it. I rarely, rarely use anything poisonous in my yard. (My big exception is getting rid of fire ant colonies. I refuse to be constantly attacked in my own yard.)
Our header today is Bee Balm or more properly, Monarda. Everything loves this stuff.
Yes, another old favorite. Have I mentioned before that this is one of my favorite sets? I leave it up on my mug rack all year round.
It’s now 11:14. So time to go. Fingers crossed this posts the first time around!
