It was a long, hot summer!

I'm glad the weather has finally cooled off. The mornings are chilly and I have started making hot tea to start the day now. I made oatmeal current scones this morning. We haven't had those since last spring because heating the oven hasn't been in the picture during this summer.
We moved down the hill in April and I cut brush until it got too hot. In July I had that bout with acid reflux and ended up two days in the hospital, which I tried to tell them I didn't need. Now, I watch my diet and never eat after six pm if I can help it. With things going along good, finally that man ran the red light and we hit him. We weren't hurt but it messed up the front of the truck. Our insurance paid for fixing it except for the deductable. It paid for the rental car for ten days. Now, we have our truck back but have to watch our budget a little closer for awhile. We got a new computer tower but I'm going to stick with dial up because it's not as expensive as the satellite internet. I can do slow. We have the phone line installed and got the first bill! Ouch! But it's mostly installation fees and stuff. It will be less next time. Now, I just have to figure out the internet bit. I work slow on stuff so it make take me a few weeks. I can use the computer here most every day. Our truck seems to know the way here because every time we come to town it heads this way. I volunteer here two mornings a week. The past two weeks I've been making cloth bookmarks for the book sale at the Mushroom Festival on Oct. 23rd. I put them in a basket which will set on the checkout table. They are a great impulse buy. If you are waiting in line you can go through the basket. I made two hundred of them. They sell for 50 cents each. I hope they do well. We keep a basket of them on the checkout desk here at the library and kids especially like them so I make some with kid print quite often.
I need to get back to sewing tote bags I guess. The farm market has been closed but the guy said he would be there the middle of October through December so I'll have to call and see what's up with that. When I get the computer set up again I'm going to try to set up a web site. I'm not to computer literate but maybe I can manage it with a little help. Time to go now.
