Cleared table tops this morning, getting ready to make a run with the recycling stuff, then head to the store.

I have a couple of very good percent-off coupons that expire soon from places where I regularly shop, so I think now is the time to do some of my holiday shopping. Anything I give will be practical and picked up extremely discounted or at one of the great thrift stores in the area.

In the yard, I need to pull hoses out of the beds where they've been all summer, and I need to take the blade off of my mower and sharpen it, to prepare for the mulching that I'll do a couple of times at least. The leaves are just now beginning to pile up. My across the street neighbor has a stone for sharpening, so I'll ask if he can do it or show me how. (When I was a child the next door neighbors had a huge round stone in a cradle that you turned by hand. One person cranked while the other sharpened. It was such a great old fashioned device that I'd love to have here today!)
