Rusty Things


We finally had a nice rain shower yesterday, and the temperature is under a 100 for a change, but the humidity is a killer today! I spent the day indoors ….. mopping floors, cleaning ceiling fans, all the chores I have been putting off. I realized, I am not as young as I used to be!  I feel a little like that rusty fence post in the picture. It takes me longer, and the energy runs out before the chores. On the other hand, like the post, I may not be as bright and shiny as I used to be, I am still holding up my end of the fence. It is always a nice feeling of accomplishment to sit down with a cup of coffee in a nice clean house….

Wait, is that another dust bunny I see under the piano……

Hello! I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I've enjoyed looking at some of your posts very much. You have some wonderful photos, too.

I can relate to the rusty post myself! I'm definitely not as young as I used to be and when I do some heavy housework, I can sure tell it.

I'm from Missouri and it's hot and humid here, too, and I'm ready for autumn. Although, I must say that the summer has gone by fast.

I'll bookmark this site and be back!
