There was frost on the pumpkin this morning.
I'm bringing this one...
And the green one up on the deck today.
The dogs went out, did their things, and came back in where it was warm.
I don't blame them.
Because today was the first day the outdoor water froze, too.
I need to poke around in the shop tomorrow and find my
heated water bowls that I keep on the deck for the wild birds all winter.
Sister is venturing out several times a day, mostly when he gets tired
of being abused by Twinkle.
He sits at the door and meows when he is ready to come back in.
Last night he leapt off my lap to go lay on the couch when Twinkle joined us.
Twinkle looks as if she were going to the bathroom here, but she is not.
She was balancing where she landed on the edge of the couch, on her way to bothering Sister again.
It's the last hurrah for the mums, too!
Here I need to make a statement about posting.
I'm back out in the country and off cable, i.e., back
on a satellite operation... at least, I think they are satellite driven, but
am not sure. Notice how cagey I am being about the carrier? I have had a few outages... but they are usually resolved shortly... it's just that uploading pictures is SLOW. I usually get up and go do things in the house while they are loading. BUT... I am pretty patient, so I am going to stay with this service.
One good thing about the frost, my grass cutting days are ending. I ran into the young man
who cuts the big house (no, it has not sold) yard... and he told me they will skip this week, and check it next week to see if it needs to be cut again. I was there after church last night to turn the
furnace on, and noticed it is looking beautiful.
I will be so happy when it sells, rather than feeling sentimental about it,
I recall it as the place where Keith was so very sick, and I do not like
going over there unless I have to.
The young man who cuts the yard here was out this week, and realizes the mowing is ending... he is going to start cutting saplings from my fenceline, hallelujah! I told him I could not support him all winter, but there was plenty he could do here to keep him busy as I pay as I go. I will be glad to get
things cleared up.
Do you all realize Halloween is upon us, and Thanksgiving just around the corner?
