This past week was difficult. Last Saturday, our beloved Lucy died, due to an inoperable liver tumor. Yesterday was the 18th anniversary of 9/11, which hits New Yorkers, Bostonians, and those in DC very hard every year.

Hurricane Dorian gave us a bit of a slap last Friday into Saturday. It wasn’t too bad, although the ferries were cancelled to the islands.

Friday, we harvested all the huge basil plants we’d grown in and around our 120 tomato plants. The ones that were stripped last week. I made a LOT of pesto. It’s really good.

We took in some of the smaller plants. Some of them are done for the season anyway. We took in the hanging decorations.

One of our giant Geraniums blew over and the pot smashed. We don’t have that sized pot, so I’m trying to maneuver it into the closest pot we have in size.

Not a lot of tree limbs down, thank goodness. The leaves are already turning and falling. Rake season will start soon. The idiots with the leaf blowers are roaming around, waving their noisy penis extensions for a couple of hours every day.

I’m going to start cutting things back and putting the yard to bed for winter. Bit by bit, so I’m not overwhelmed just before first frost. It’s made such a huge positive difference to have someone come in and mow.

It never ceases to amaze me how my guy comes in by himself and gets it done in 20 minutes, and it’s perfect. Across the street, they have a yard less than half the size, and it takes 3 guys an hour and a half every week.

I think it’s the coyote who is eating the cat food I leave out on the deck. Which means I’ll stop putting it out. I heard him on Sunday night into Monday. And then, a few hours later, the creepy bird woke me. I’m getting superstitious about both of them, and now stressing about every little thing.

I’m sad and overwhelmed by the events of the past few months. Just sad and overwhelmed.
