I rode my horse

The weather just now is so perfect, it almost defies description.

Big, full moon in the mornings when I'm soaking in the hot tub.

Crisp air, with temperatures in the forties to start.

Blue, cloudless skies.  Highs around seventy in the afternoon.

So of course I saddled Blue yesterday after Cliff left for work.

It was a good ride.  I was amazed to see the corn has turned from green to brown, looking ready for harvest.  I had my camera, and figured I'd share the autumn landscape with my readers.

Except that the battery was dead.  The battery lasts so long on my little camera that it always comes as a surprise when it finally needs re-charging.

Just take my word for it, it's a wonderful world out there right now.

On another note, the last of our concrete was poured yesterday.  Now we can buckle down-knuckle down to living in our new spot.  Oh, there are minor things we still need to do, but those will be out-of-pocket expenses.  Things like planting grass and getting the propane tank moved to a better location.  Cliff is in the process of laying out boundaries for our yard.  Oh, and I may plant some tulips today.

Life is good and I'm glad you'll be done with everything now before the bad weather sets in.  A hot tub and a horse - what a wonderful world. 'On Ya'-ma

Sounds like you are having some great days. I was wondering yesterday if you had been riding Blue any lately. Sounds as if you and Cliff have just about got things in order to sit back and enjoy the fall and winter to come. I hope you get your tulips planted today. That is a beautifil song. I always thought so. Helen

It doesn't get much better than that.  Life is good.  What has Secret been up to?  Haven't heard much about her lately.   Vicki

Yes ma'am, this cooler weather is agreeing with myself too. I dont have it quite as cool as you do yet, but I am looking forward to it. I am ready for it. Usually I am not, but this time I am ready to enjoy it. I am glad you and Blue got out for a ride. The corn down the road has morning glories winding all the way up the stalks and it is so beautiful. I really need to get a picture of it before the whack it all down. It is really pretty. Have a good day today. :) Kelly

I'm so glad your new home is coming all together for you, with the big things out of the way.  You're going to enjoy yourself so much doing all those "little" things to finish it up.  And next Spring is going to be wonderful for you too, isn't it?

Oh yes, tulips! You will be very happy in the spring :-)
