The leaves are finally changing, the weather is finally kind of cooling off, and I am finally getting a chance to wear a few of my fall sweaters that I pilled out a month ago and have basically neglected because it has been way to freaking warm out. (and there is still some people that think global warmer is fake) Worst part is I have been holding off on pumpkin picking just because it hasn't felt right. I need a cool overcast day for it to work for me. Be cool, be dreary, I need a pumpkin!
This week didn't exactly turn out as it was suppose to. It started out strong with knocking out doctors appointments, having dinner and doing laundry at Shannon's, the mr even halfway cleaned out one of the barns. But when it came to getting any work done on the house, not so much. We were suppose to start tiling the bathroom but lucky us, the tile that we have and thought we were going to use, well we don't have enough if it. And it's no where to be found so we had to go back to figuring out what to use for tile. We figured it out but now we need to buy it and blah blah blah. Long story shore, the bathroom is still not done and I really miss having two toilets in the house.(especially when the little are over) The upside of this week was that we ended up spending a good amount of time hiking and doing things outside. I even started peeing outside (haha, mot really but I have thought about it)
Yesterday the mr and tried our hands at bird watching. There was an article in the paper about snow geese and how there is this spot out in Addison that thousands of these geese come and rest on their journey south. We decided that it is time we harness our inner bird watchers and made the journey to that field. And bummer, no geese in sight. We spent a good long hour waiting, then did a little hiking through some woods (got scared away by hunters) in search od the geese, but no real luck. We did get to see a handful flying around in circles, but unlike all of the other seasoned birdwatchers we saw (we saw a lot) we did not have binoculars. That was a good lesson for next time, and yes, there will be a next time. I think it might be my calling in life. Watching birds. Sounds so simple and so good.
Today I hope to get some major things done, mainly birthday present making and cleaning out the freezer for the birthday cake Barbs turning 18 this week!!! and (of course she wants an ice cream cake... I don't know what I am going to do with all the frozen tomatoes) Also probably going to make another loaf of squash bread because the littles are coming over for dinner and I want to stink up the house all nice and good.And coffee. So much. I spent all week only drinking one cup a day (acid reflux flare up) so i need to catch upon my caffeine intake.
