Kate, from New Zealand, sent me a lovely rainbow awhile back…with the losing of Fuzzy I am only just now getting it posted.
Although, I’m late her latest post tells that she is still in remission after two years from beating cancer! YAY! Kate! We all wish you continued good health.
Terry and I are starting to finally get a handle on that house down the way…he will work on some electrical wiring today and I will finish cleaning up the mess made from removing the old chimney.
Our grandchildren and their parents are coming this Friday, (YIPPEE) so we won’t turn off and drain the water until after they leave. There is still no furnace (although there is a wood stove)…we are fourth in line for the company to come out and install the forced air duct work…we already have the furnace. It would be foolish on our part to not winterize the pipes…it might be December before the duct work is completed.
The corn is drying down…still to high to start harvest (which is good so we can get that house under control), but should be able to start anytime now. The corn moisture was 15.4% yesterday—we need to get to 14% before we can begin. The polar express hit here last night with 21* but no rain or snow YET!!! I rather hope the moisture goes around us. I’ve heard from lots of my Colorado friends that snow is here in Colorado now. As soon as I can I’ll be visiting my blog friends to see how the polar vortex effected all of them.
The sunrise this morning was a promise of a clear day today so I’m going to take it. The tree that laughed at me on Sunday has decided to drop it’s leaves now. As I was cleaning yesterday afternoon, the wind came up and I heard a HUGE SIGH...’Good-bye until Spring’ the tree said and started gathering all it’s sap and sending it down to it’s roots. ‘GOOD-BYE…I’m rather sleepy now…see you…………zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’.
As the lovely tree fell to sleep the wind pushed and pulled the leaves off the branches filling the back yard and our neighboring cornfield with the lovely golden orange leaves.
I went out and gave the tree a hug and high-fived the wind!
