GOOGLE+....

I do not like GOOGLE+....

People leave a lovely comment, here.

The only link their "name" gives me, takes me to
GOOGLE+.

Which gives me, no way to find them.

Plus, they comment here, with a "no reply blogger" setting.

PLEASE!!!! If you use
GOOGLE+ please put a link to your blog, there!

PLEASE!!!!

PLEASE!!!!

PLEASE!!!!

For one thing, yes I am GRUMPY...

Yes!  As you can see, from my "Message" under my Header...  I am very upset with GOOGLE+. (This does not apply to you  Lorraine.  I know where your blog is.)  But another lady, left a sweet Comment on my blog.

Her link takes me just to GOOGLE+.   And there is no way, to find a link, to her blog.  -sigh-  And her comment came from her setting, of a "No-Reply Blogger"...  -another sigh-

Are other bloggers finding themselves, in this same position?  Not able to make contact with people, who are using  GOOGLE+ ???

*:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧

And now, just showing how some trees are beginning to change color, in my "neck of the woods"...

*:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧

See all those things, hanging from this car's read view mirror???   Wow, I couldn't drive, with such.  Anything hanging from there, would swing around, and be very distracting to my driving.    But obviously, not every one is like me.  :-)

*:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧

After getting some corn at the stand, we took a little ride up in the country.  There were interesting houses. I couldn't take pics of all of them, due to traffic, etc.  But no one was behind us, when we approached this one, and he could stop and I took a pic, out his window.  :-)

A lovely old home.  Made of stone.  Beautiful.  Except for that white addition on the right.   I'm glad the rear-view mirror covers part of it up, because it is not a well done addition.  -sigh-

*:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧ *:・゚✧


Have you noticed how fast, young people talk?  ,-)  This makes understanding a phone answering-machine message, most difficult.  We had one this morning, which we thought was a wrong number...  But no, it was a real message!  

So I proceeded to nicely tell the gal, that when calling older people, it is necessary to slow down, please.  Hey, if you don't tell 'em, how do they know.  -chuckle-

Sun... Silly... Cheese... Neighborhood News... Etc... ,-)

 DID  YOU READ  THE  MESSAGE,
UNDER MY HEADER?
PLEASE DO...  THANK YOU.

I am so happy, that it is a beautiful, sunny, late summer day!!!    Nights are being cool, which adds to the joy.  :-)  Look at the sun on those little flowers, just outside the back patio door...   Brilliant colors, and they look so happy.  :-)

Which of course, makes me a bit "queasy" about days of clouds and rain and etc.  Which November, is a lot about.  Yes!  Yes!  I hear you!!!!  It's silly!   Borrowing worry, wayyyyy ahead of time.  ,-)

 (lights reflection...  in den windows...) 
And it is pretty silly.  Where did that thought, come from?  Instead of just enjoying the day today!  -sigh-  Why worry about being less pleased, with future weather?
♥*¨`*.✫*¨*.¸¸.♥*¨`*.✫*¨♥*¨`*.✫*¨**¨`*

I never thought I would eat something, which looks like this!!!  LOL!!!  It's Goat Cheese...  Which I call a kind of a Brie Goat Cheese.  And it's tangy!!!!  ,-)  But I am buying it.  And I am eating it.  

Basically, I'm so glad that I can get Goat Cheese here, in my Healthy Living Store.  Otherwise, I'd not have any Cow Cheese, which I could eat, without worry...  Worry of my gut "paying me back," for having eaten it. (due to lactose intolerance)

I really appreciate Goat Cheese!!!!!!

Ahhh how we can change, when necessity makes us need to do so!   :-)

A photo, from 2012...  Across our back yard, and across son/daughter-in-law's back yard, and over into a back yard, on another street.  Back then, I could seeeee to there.  -sigh-

But this brings me to "New Neighborhood News"!!!  :-)  We learned that the house behind us, has been sold.  Probably to people who rehab houses and "flip" them.  Yessssss!!!!!!

This is the house, where the old boyfriend of the owner, planted a whole bunch of scrub trees.  Which completely altered our back view, and son/daughter-in-law's back view.  The scrub trees grew.  And I now call it "The Magic Woods."  Which is better, than being aggravated,  every time I look at it.

But now, if the house is to be rehabbed for re-sale, they will certainly have to do some landscaping!  We hope!  We hope a whole lot of the scrub trees, will be removed.

Just photo taking fun...

Books... And is Autumn coming???

I just love that illustration of an old fashioned girl, reading.....  :-)

I loved "The Hollow" Trilogy, by Jessica Verday.  So I was thrilled to find that she had written "A companion to "The Hollow" Trilogy ("The Beautiful and the Damned".).  Love-her-writing!!!!  Await the next book, after this one.
 
Soooo glad to find another in the "Ruth Galloway" Series!!!  This ("The Outcast Dead") is the 6th book...  But a reader must, must, must read the Series, from the beginning.  The author Elly Griffiths, is another favorite of mine....  Great, great, great books!!!!

I read both these books, in 2 days!  So you can see, that I enjoyed them.  :-)
 
It may not be this-like-Autumn yet, in "our neck of the woods".  But you can feel, that it is coming.  
 
Now is the in-between time....  Late summer...  Abundance of fruits and veggies...  Cooler...  But you just-know the weather will warm up again.   
 
Probably as soon as school starts.  Poor kids.  School beginning, and the summer-like sunshine, out doors, calls to them...  :-)
 

"There is a temperate zone in the mind, between luxurious indolence and exacting work; and it is to this region, just between laziness and labor, that summer reading belongs."
