A Few Things!

Hello friends!
Yippee -- it's almost Friday again!

Hope you had a good week!
We're drifting back into warm and humid weather again after
 a very cool front blew through last weekend.

Happy news --my hydrangeas
are finally starting to get more flower buds!
I've been watching and waiting all summer --
only 3 blooms to date.
But, there are at least 6 heading toward blooming.
When we had frost warnings last weekend,
I camped out to keep the plants warm and toasty!
It worked!  Am hoping to see some beautiful flowers very soon!

Have you seen or heard about this app?
Evidently Tom Hanks loves the old clickety-clack sound
typewriters made in the good old days!
Seriously -- who doesn't love that sound!
Sooooo, being Tom Hanks and all, 
he (or someone he knows) made an app for iPads
called the Hanx Writer
It is super cool
and available at the app store.

logo Instapaper freshens up with a new logo, website redesign and text highlighting feature

In other techy-type news -- which is kind of beyond
my skill set -- have you heard of Instapaper?
I think my son told me about it. I signed up for a weekly email
with links to the most popular articles/music of the week.
  It comes with little blurbs
so I don't have to read the whole thing if I don't want to.
Some really great articles that I totally would have missed otherwise!

Soooo, what's up for your weekend?
We plan on doing some volunteering for a local
homeless shelter, some shopping (baby needs new shoes) and
maybe hit the Applejack Festival!
Hope some apple crisp or cobbler is
in my future.
Have a fun weekend y'all!

The typewriter does have a good sound to it and Hydrengas are my favorite flower.
