Done traveling for now
Wednesday, October 30, 2019      16 comments

A short day of work on Monday and then driving out of town for a funeral and returning yesterday. The drive was pleasant and the combines are harvesting corn or soybeans so there is plenty of dust in the air. Time to get back to work. It... Read more
A fine fall Friday
Friday, October 25, 2019      13 comments

A very nice day without much of a break during the day but out of the door on time tonight so I could watch my GD play volleyball and have dinner with youngest son and his wife. Just a fine fall Friday.... Read more
Making plans
Wednesday, October 23, 2019      16 comments

As we work through the Part D enrollment period, we also have to make plans for a funeral. DH's aunt, who had been in a care center for several years, has died and we will need to be gone for a day. Thankfully, we had seen her in August ... Read more
A cold and blustery day
Tuesday, October 22, 2019      12 comments

Almost a half inch of rain but it came in heavy showers and mist most of the day. The wind was very brisk during the afternoon and howled most of the night. Happy to be inside working on health insurance quotes for our seniors. One of DH... Read more
Ah, yes, Oktoberfest
Monday, October 21, 2019      15 comments

Last year I did not go to Oktoberfest. After my open heart surgery, I did not have the stamina to spend long hours on my feet working the event and I must have been under the weather as we just stayed home. I do remember making my salads... Read more
Focus on what needs to be done first
Thursday, October 17, 2019      19 comments

Medicare signup time has begun and so many seniors to talk to before the enrollment period ends. And then there is all of the service work that also needs to be done. I need to focus on the most important goals first but not lose sight ... Read more
Even the weather has mood swings
Wednesday, October 16, 2019      18 comments

Mother Nature has mood swings. One day it is pleasant and sunny and the next it is damp and cool and windy. It is hard to know what exactly to wear but being prepared is part of life. We have to adjust. I am trying to be prepared for the... Read more
Ready to get my house back
Sunday, October 13, 2019      17 comments

I am very glad that the farmers market season is almost over. I need to get my house back, store all the boxed used for hauling cakes and breads and noodles. Ready to put away the trays used for the tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, etc. Just ... Read more
Farmers market cancelled
Saturday, October 12, 2019      18 comments

We should have known this would happen but it is only a minor inconvenience. The market has been cancelled. Hubby did bake some breads and cakes but all can be frozen and sold next week. The veggies are a different story. I can make toma... Read more
We missed Autumn and went straight to Winter
Friday, October 11, 2019      13 comments

A frigid Friday to be sure. I think the temperature has stopped dropping and we had rain yesterday and snow flurries overnight. Maybe after this cold front passes, the weather will warm up. Time will tell if any of the flowers will survi... Read more
A day of transition
Thursday, October 10, 2019      18 comments

We are going from a day in the low 70's to a day of falling temperatures and maybe the 45 degrees I see now is all the warmer it will get. We did butcher those 14 old roosters last night after work and I am glad to be done. Not so happy ... Read more
A wintry forecast ahead
Wednesday, October 09, 2019      12 comments

The weather forecast is for snow this weekend. It appears that the western part of the state could see 5-20 inches of snow. We may see more rain than snow but still 2+ inches of snow is more than enough. We cleared out the garden and pic... Read more
The new week
Monday, October 07, 2019      16 comments

Monday has arrived and the week will be a roller coaster of temperatures and activity. We are expecting snow on Friday, which will put an end to most of the garden but then the weather will warm up and stay dry for 2 weeks after that. I... Read more
Ignore temptation Thursday
Thursday, October 03, 2019      22 comments

Now that some of us are experiencing the change of seasons from the heat of summer to the cool of Autumn, we reach for comfort foods like hearty stews and rich, thick soups, grilled cheese sandwiches and hearty breads. These, in and of ... Read more
October is a change
Wednesday, October 02, 2019      18 comments

The weather has gotten cooler and we are getting the fall rains that are normal but certainly not needed this year. The garden had just dried enough to get around and now, with over an inch of rain, it will be a slippery mess. The hubby... Read more
