The conversion has been complete!
For the first time in 23 years I cooked a meal with natural gas.
The big hole in my yard is covered up, and hopefully will be seeded later today.
The chickens scared the gas man that was installing the meter - it was quite funny - he thought this sign was just decoration -
I'm still in town?
I didn't go anywhere yet.
Didn't want to head to Missouri while I was in so much pain.
Cysts on both ovaries - evidence of one burst on the left side.
I think I might know what childbirth feels like now - but I've nothing to show for it!
The weather here is ridiculous.
It's very difficult to sit here and blog.
The weeds await!
So much to accomplish before the snow flies - we are busy scraping, painting, planning, figuring and scheming.
Here's the red door so far - don't you love how I put the address on there with upholstery nails?
Still scraping and painting to be done in this area -
Another super cute decorating idea - it would look better if I would have actually washed the window - maybe put some bittersweet up there too....
We really are busy as bees - especially Glenco - he's working his wings off.
Thank you for all the honey orders!
It's all gone for now - perhaps this week I'll find time to get in the hives and get some more.
Some may think me crazy, but I really do love this time of year -
Not just for it's blazing beauty,
but I like the winding down part.
|the reason I get few raspberries : -)|
The 'this is the last time I'll weed the garden this year' part.
The 'put the extra quilts on the bed' part.
I like the way the light dances around the yard so differently than summer, bringing everything to life in it's autumn glow.
I like that soon we'll be sequestered indoors and it'll be time for knitting, books and dreaming of next years gardens and shenanigans.
I'll be pulling out with the Squirrel on Monday for tomfoolery with Janie Fox.
Excited is an understatement!
After that, I'll head off to Missouri.
Today the BoyChild comes here after school and we will have Fun Fall Frolic Day tomorrow - bike riding, picnics, maybe a hike near the lake. I had fully planned on calling him off of school tomorrow - cause that would make it seem extra special - and here there is no school tomorrow anyhow!
I'm going to make him take a million photos - the boy has mad skills and gets photos like this with his phone...
"Oh that? I think I had my eyes closed when I took it."
Mmmhmmm....and I don't even feel good Aaron.
My blog posts may be sporadic for a few weeks as I finish up outside projects, suck the marrow out of my time with the BoyChild, and travel the countryside.
But you might just want to check everyday anyhow - cause if'n you've been a reader long enough, you know I make no rhyme or reason.
When I think I'm not going to blog much - I blog nearly every day.
When I plan to blog everyday - I'm lucky to get a post up in a week.
It's how I roll.
