Thursday… Crap. Nothing Rhymes with Thursday.

Because I feel the need to post and really have nothing to post about, I bring to you Thursday… whatever. Don't you hate that when you don't have a cutesy name to go with your post? Oh… maybe that's just me. If you are bored by people who blog mundane, uninteresting things… then you may just want to move along. Today? I got nothin'.

  • A big thank you goes out to all of you who got me over the 30-mark on my Blogiversary post! Feel free if you haven't posted yet or are just now de-lurking to go on back and tack on your two-cents worth. Maybe we could set the bar even higher… like 40 or 50? I mean, gee… I DO come see all of YOU…you know, over THERE —–>  Reciprocating is nice.
  • In case you hadn't noticed, I added a 'Book Pages' page to my blog. I just started it mid-July, but you can tell I read a little bit. I don't think I could ever list all the books I've read, own, or have owned. It is pretty extensive, to say the least. Hubs teases me that the library is going to run out of books for me to read. I remind him that is why I have to buy them occasionally!
  • Last night was the first real inkling that Fall is just around the corner. It got into the 50's overnight. It was almost cold when I let the pups out this morning. I like it. Really. Fall brings a lot of work – between the farm and my 'town' job – but it still is one of my favorite seasons. When it starts to get crisp and the leaves turn and the crops dry down… the smell of burning leaves and people starting to have fires in the fireplaces and the smell you get from the combined fields. I just love it. Second only to winter with three feet of snow and a fire in the fireplace and no where to go.
  • This coming week is the big wrap-up to race season. Saturday night is the last night at the regular track, then all week next week is what is known as the Supernationals. People come from many states – and even from Australia – and race all next week to qualify for a big final race at weeks' end. Youngest son is going to race this year. Keep your fingers crossed! A couple of years ago he qualified to be on the pole for the big race in a different car class. Will be interesting to see how he does in this class. Hubs is planning on taking the RV over to the track and possibly staying a night or two. It is close enough to home I think I may just pass, but we'll see. Never say never, right?

Warned you I got nothin' today. Don't you hate when that happens?

  1. sentiments, exactly! It would be so nice if those who stop by, would just say hello, but I understand, ’cause I do the same thing…read, but leave no reply. Sometimes, it is just a matter of not quite knowing what to know?

    I, too, love this time of year, just going into fall..there’s a certain way the light looks, and the evenings, for the most part, are cool.

    We must be ‘cocooners’, if there is such a word…I love when it is raining or snowing, or just plain cold as heck, and have something smelling good in the kitchen, and candles all around, with a fire going in the fireplace. Mmmmmmmm…so see, your post today is a good one…it stirred up some memories, and things to look forward to. 🙂

  2. I am still a little hazy from the “essense of flowers” but I’ll have something to say about not having much to say soon. And fall.
    I’ll write about fall too. And other stuff. Is anyone else’s mouth dry?
    Races are cool. So are pretty colors…

  3. Hey, if it wasn’t for mundane, uninteresting things, I wouldn’t have a blog!! 🙂

    Fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of the year. I especially like it after the first frost–NO bugs, the colors are gorgeous, the crispness of the air. Nothing is better!

  4. What I’d give for a night in the 50’s. I so can’t wait for fall. It’s been way too hot down my way, but we’ve finally had rain. That’s a good thing…

  5. Sounds like we were suffering from the same “Thursday . . . nothings” yesterday.
    I like the bullets! Bullets are always a good stand-by to a full train-of-thought post!
