I am a little slow getting this blog written. Tuesday morning it was time to say goodbye to Rollie and Gina. We really enjoyed their visit and being able to share a little bit of our neighbourhood with them. I think you really see the things around you in a different light when you see it through other eyes. Thanks for letting us borrow your eyes folks, and travel safe. Hurry Back!
Sorry for the lack of focus but they left pretty early.
Once Gina and Rollie left we settled back into our normal routine, the odd trip to town and a little tinkering around the farm.
It is looking a lot more like fall every day around here and the temperatures are dropping below 0C (32F) at night now on a pretty regular basis. Although there are not many yellow leaves in the trees above they are showing their faces more and more each day. I saw these fellows below this morning while out doing my morning walk and it will not be too long until they are looking for the does’ and working on next years crop of fawns.
And these guys they call Canada Geese but I think you can’t be called Canadian unless you spend a winter or two here and don’t fly the coop as soon as a little frost gets in the air.
As for us we are planning on staying here and enjoying a little Indian summer but if God is willing and the creeks don’t rise we are hoping to get out of here towards the end of October. So we are hoping those geese save us a little space somewhere in the Arizona desert.
