Go away freezing temperatures! Enough already… shorts to sweats? I get it… even though I’m a control freak, you are still in charge. I give, you win! Please come back fall… we barely knew ya! :)

A beautiful day

Although the lakes in the area are very low and we are late into the season, nothing can take away from the beauty of this foliage. And I even like the dead and naked tree! :)

I’m grateful for my family, friends and good health!  What are you thankful for?  Cute poem I found online, gave me a smile and wanted to share it!

Twas the night of Thanksgiving
But I just couldn’t sleep.
I tried counting backwards,
I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned
The dark meat and white,
But I fought the temptation
With all of my might.

Tossing and turning
With anticipation,
The thought of a snack
Became infatuation.
So I raced to the kitchen,
Flung open the door,
And gazed in the fridge
Full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey
And buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots,
Beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling
So plump and so round,
Till all of a sudden,
I rose off the ground!

I crashed through the ceiling,
Floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding
And a handful of pie.
But I managed to yell
As I soared past the trees…

“HAPPY EATING TO ALL! PASS THE CRANBERRIES PLEASE!”

After all the whining and carrying on about the drought, I thought I would show you we have wheat growing and by golly it’s a welcome sight! Not a great picture, but you can see the little rows where the husband sowed it with the grain drill. Keep your fingers crossed for continued rainfall!

but he forgot to say it could be the ceiling instead of the sky!

Mom was enjoying an evening of television when the cat made a wild dash from the room just as half of her ceiling fell! She called to report she wasn’t hurt, but was scared. The husband and I rushed over to survey the damage, take pictures and help her clean up the mess. Thank goodness she wasn’t injured! But, her glass coffee table was broken, the gas heater knocked off the wall, many of her collectibles shattered and the ceiling fan lost a blade. She will find out tomorrow how much the insurance will pay towards repairing the damage. What a mess!

Geez.. by the looks of the local stores, we might as well skip November and head right on in to December. When exactly did it become necessary to put on this marketing blitz for Christmas decorations before Halloween? Oh well, nothing to do but hope people remember the reason for the season.

Oh! On second thought, I guess we can’t skip November, my baby brother would miss his birthday!

Happy Fall Y’all! :)
