A lovely postcard arrived in the mail yesterday. My buddy, Ry Austin (TwoWheelstoThere), had visited “not-even-a-grocery-store” Pioche, Nevada and thought of me. He said, “Believe it or not, this was the best postcard in town.” Ry, I’m surprised the town even had a postcard! Thanks for thinking of me. 🙂
Ry also said, “Get it while you can, Kathy, Old Man Winter is on his way.”
He’s right. Slowly, but surely, signs of Fall are starting to appear.
Schools are back in session. Football season has begun. Stores are selling Mums. Pumpkin-flavored everything is being sold everywhere. The nights are getting cooler. Some leaves are starting to change. The cornfields are browning-up.
I love Fall. Cool temps are always welcome after Summer’s heat and humidity. The days are still on the warm side, but we’ve had a couple cooler ones.
Hubby has been working on a house project, which he’s been meaning to do since we moved into this house. Since he’s busy, I’m free to amble about on my own.
I could probably do some stuff around the house, too, but I’d rather play with my toy.
Last Saturday, I drove to Baltimore — it was pouring rain most of the day — for my friend Bill’s a surprise 50th birthday party. The party was lovely. I got to visit with old friends AND I brought some steamed crabs home for dinner. YUM.
Good crabs are hard to find in this part of Virginia. They’re expensive as all get-out, too — $67/dozen — so we don’t get them often.
On Sunday, while Hubby worked on his project, I moseyed around southeastern Fauquier County on my motorcycle.
It was a pretty day.
I finally managed to visit the local-ish winery with the LOVEwork that’s only open on weekends, too.
After that, I went to a local farm store for some corn on the cob. Gotta get THAT while the getting is good, too. The corn is just about done for the season.
Temps today are supposed to top out in the mid-80s. Hubby needs to finish his project. I could find some chores to do, but, like Ry said, I gotta get my riding in while I can. 🙂
