We are home!
The camper is parked for the season!
(better not say that to loud, anything can happen)
I have been playing catch-up with all things that were neglected the last couple of months.
That would be my main reason for being away from blog-land the last week or so.
The first big chore was getting the house a little more organized.
(still working on that)
Then it was trying to get the garden in shape before winter.
I did a full clean out over the weekend.
I was surprised at all of the things that still needed to be picked.
Now I will have to spend the rest of this week getting them put up for winter.
The garden looks pretty bare now!
Just weeds and a row of marigolds!
I have my phone set up for weather alerts.
Today it has been buzzing wildly about the upcoming freeze expected for tonight.
Makes me kind of sad to see another growing season come to an end.
The zinnia are still happily blooming.
My rose bush is still loaded with flowers.
But I know the time has come when you look across the fields and most of the crops have been combined.
Tonight I will throw an extra blanket on the bed, and cuddle a little bit closer to the pipeliner.
And tomorrow when I start canning all of my veggies, my mind will be busy planning next years garden!
