I received news that one of my aunts passed away earlier this month. This morning, I read that a high school classmate passed away on Friday. Saturday would have been my mom's 101st birthday. I miss her every day.
Although it's freaking cold in the morning here, I made it to the car wash yesterday.

The weather has been nearly perfect. The hibiscus continues to bloom and the trees continue to put on a show. However, we're expecting a lot of rain on Friday and I fear the trees will lose most of their leaves. I could be wrong; it's happened once or twice. 🤣

Remember when Saturday was homemade pizza day? My new apartment has less counter space and making pizza requires a lot. Any baking, in general, is not easily accomplished in tight quarters. Anyway, I made pizza yesterday. It was tasty but I doubt it will be a weekly endeavor.

Here we are, on the downhill side of 2022.
No trick-or-treaters last night. I was prepared with treats but no little goblins showed up. Oh well.
Some color on my street.

Autumn is gentle. Like Spring, Autumn is a time of change. Spring brings the new leaves to the trees and Autumn sheds them, in riotous color. Winter and summer are about surviving. Take in the red, yellow, and orange and remember them when winter turns everything gray and bleak.

I hung outdoor lights on my patio. The job required thinking outside the box as I'm limited as to what I can do in a rented space, vis-a-vis nails, screws, etc. But they're up and staying in place, thus far.
Received my first wine delivery at my new address. A signature is required for alcohol and for the first time, the fedex guy also asked for my date of birth. I watched as he spun the dial to find the year. Lol.

Now that all of the boxes have been unpacked, it's time to personalize my new space.

Hopefully, I have stood in my very last DMV line. I detest the DMV, but I wouldn't want to work there.
All boxes have been unpacked. I still search for what I need especially in the kitchen.
Anyway, I had a chance (and the inclination) to take a few pics.

Life goes on. No more pain, thankfully. I signed the lease for my new apartment so the next several weeks will be a busy time, gradually moving everything out/in. I woke up at 2am making a mental list of what I need to take with me today. I'm not moving heavy stuff, that will be done by my son and grandson.
A few pictures from the end of August. (I was disappointed that my niece didn't take a photo of the ambulance as they took me away. lol)

I woke Monday morning to sharp chest pains and they didn't go away. It was an intermittent pain but sharp and strong. What to do? I finally woke my niece and she called 911. The paramedics did the usual tests, it didn't appear to be my heart. So I had my very first (and hopefully last) ride in an ambulance. At the hospital, more tests including chest x-rays. Bottom line, it wasn't my heart or lungs. When I left the hospital 5 hours later, I was still having pains every few minutes. The doctor has referred me to a cardiologist for further testing just in case. The pain ceased around 8pm last night.
Back to regular programming.
