Earlier this week, I was hot & sweating in a t-shirt; but tonight it is supposed to get down to 24 degrees. I haven't turned on my heat yet, but I have closed all of my windows. We are 20 degrees colder than normal for this time of year.
Today, I went out & picked the last of my bell peppers and tomatoes before the freeze. I felt kinda silly picking green tomatoes but...
My snapdragons are blooming their little hearts out today, and they will be all shriveled up tomorrow. Maybe I'll pick some & put them in water. I only bought white ones this year. They are my very favorite flower.
I was outside earlier today for awhile-standing, (I was trying to unhook my garden hose) and when I tried to move later, I was stiff and I lurched a bit as I got moving again.
I guess it is time to move my fans upstairs & I'll bring my winter coat & gloves down on the same trip & maybe my boots as well.
Update on my ankle: I did not call the orthopaedist yet. I have been wearing the brace & have cut down on my exercise class. It has been feeling better & I get (some) support from the brace. Today I have felt like I have had a charlie horse all day in that leg-it just feels so tight. I know that I have been altering my walk, so now everything feels off. Maybe next week I'll go to the free clinic & see what they think is going on. I've never been to it before and it is 1st come 1st served & only on Tuesdays & Fridays. I suppose that I should go early to make sure that I get seen.
I expect all the trees will change colors after the freeze tonight. I have seen some beautiful trees this week; yellows & reds, etc.
Have a lovely weekend all.
