Indeed it is. Hurricane Patricia swooped through Mexico, rained all over Texas and as it heads north it's dragging moisture out of the Gulf of Mexico to give us a good soaking.
We picked up cabbage and red leaf lettuce plants yesterday and got them planted, after pulling out about 90,000,000 weeds. They should enjoy the weather. I thought I'd have time to plant the bulbs I bought (daffodils, paper whites and some others I can't remember the name of) but the rain got here sooner than we expected so bulbs will have to wait. Mac did get the pansies we bought potted, they should last till next year's heat gets them.
We need to pick lemons too. Most years we might get one lemon on out tree, but this year it produced a few more. Not really lemonade season, wonder if I could squeeze them and just save the juice.
I've mentioned to several bloggers that I'm enjoying all the pictures being posted of the leaves changing colors because none of ours have and they wondered when did ours change color. Not all our trees lose their leaves, the live oaks don't and of course the pines and firs don't. Eventually the maples and sycamores will, but it won't be until late November or December. Some years the leaves don't fall until the new leaves force them out. So fall is nice here, but not very colorful.
I've been working on a gift for how daughter, really whizzing along, looked down and saw the WAY BACK I'd made a mistake and had to undo most of what I'd done. Miss Kitty thought it was fun to watch me undoing it. Need to do a better job of counting stitches.
Mac is having trouble tuning his mandolin and has decided to order tuner meant for mandolins and violins instead of using his guitar one. A mandolin have 8 strings in sets of two and is more like a violin than a guitar, who knew? He read about a man who said he'd had a mandolin for 30 years, 15 playing it and 15 years tuning it.
I need to go do something productive, have a good Tuesday.
