I hope you had a pleasant weekend. I did and a pleasant Monday as well. Friday evening Catherine and I went to hear Don Piper who wrote the book "90 Minutes in Heaven". I am sure you have seen this in the bookstores, it was on the best-seller list for many many months. Don explained to us the events leading up to his death, his 90 minutes in heaven and his remarkable recovery from physically dying and his months and months of recovery time. He is quite a remarkable man that tells an amazing story of the events. Without the power of prayer and his faith in God, this story could never have been told. If you ever have the opportunity to hear Don Piper or to read his book, I would encourage you to do so. It is thought provoking and filled with his strong faith and the amazing power of prayer.
Yesterday I went to see my sweetie who is doing well. He was in good spirits and wanted to walk. And walk we did and fast. Round and round the corridors we went, turning and moving around chairs, pausing only briefly and then back to walking. He is still in wonderful physical health, but the mind continues to fail. Yesterday he called me his buddy...I will settle for buddy, better that than nothing.
Driving home I turned down a road or two to try to capture the farmlands as the crops fade and the land is no longer producing. Many fields have already been plowed under and farmers are harvesting the corn for feed. Another growing year is coming to a close with hopes of a better year next spring.
After visiting my sweetie before heading home, I stopped by my daughter's for a brief visit, she is so busy at this time of the year that I don't see her that often, and as I was leaving I looked up to see the tree in her side yard beginning to turn golden, a bright blue sky, and the half moon high in the sky. This is SOOC, look at those brilliant fall colors...
Yesterday, I planted the pots on my front porch, filling them with fall flowers. Instead of mums, I planted pansies since it is early and mums don't seem to last too long after blooming, where pansies continue to bloom all through the season. Maybe I will pick up mums later, but for right now it's pansies. Added some ornamental peppers to give some added red pop and another dark leaf ornamental pepper whose berries eventually turn bright red.
And today was movie club with the girls. We went to see the new Clint Eastwood movie, "Trouble With The Curve"...another great one..highly recommend this movie and it's not just about baseball.
So that's it, my good weekend and good Monday. Tonight the official new TV season begins and I am ready. Dancing With The Stars and Castle...two of my favs are on tonight. What are your favorite shows that you are looking forward to seeing? And fyi, I decided to do a catch-up and watch all the episodes of "Homeland" on Showtime that I had taped and I am glad that I did since it won best actor, best actress and best dramatic series last night at the emmy. Another one I would recommend. Excellent acting with taut stories of homeland security and America's fight against terrorism in the US. So that's it...I have recommended a book, a movie and a TV series. Do you have any good recommendations??
