Drinking my coffee this morning it is already 77* out.
Sure its "fall" now, but you'd never know it.
Hotter temperatures last week than we had in the month of August.
I'll take it. Although it makes finishing up my canning a hot sweaty job.
Lots going on around here.
The annual Fireman's parade in town - our 15th year attending finds our youngest in the high school marching band.
The band unfortunately continues to shrink and he is the only alto sax player this year.
Their main song was from Star Wars.
Caden even had a sax solo!
They did a fun little dance.
He gets his braces off in 10 WEEKS!
Better be seeing those pearly whites after that in pictures lol
The big kids came out to see their brother in the band.
Fall travel ball has began.
Course every game is in MN and a 100+ miles from home on Sunday's.
Which makes for a looooong Sunday. Fortunately his team is scheduled for the noon and 2p time slots so there are no split schedules or hanging around for hours waiting to play again.
He can only play 2nd base and short stop this season, which is fine.
No pitching until next spring.
The games they've played so far have been really well matched.
Lots of action, which makes the games a lot of fun to watch.
Their coach is a college student who plays college ball at a nearby University.
Looking forward to tomorrows games already.
Chyann will be driving from St Cloud to watch with us. The game is less than an hours drive from where she is.
Will be nice to see her. School and work have kept her really busy so far this semester, but she is doing well keeping up with all that she has to do.
It's that time of year again when the pastures have pretty much yielded all the edible grass for the season so the horses are back to mowing the yard.
Bird brain Jennifer eating seeds from one of my feeders.
She is a little porky, but not quite as porky as this picture suggests.
Last spring I planted a bag of mixed bulbs and this beautiful flower showed up just last week!
Anyone know what it is?
Leaves are turning and falling.
Coming home from my daily walk.
The apples are huge and heavy this year. This is the second tree to loose a branch from the weight.
I am making apple sauce and possibly apple butter today.
While the days grow shorter and we are busier than ever trying to do everything that we feel we need to do, it's important to remember to BREATHE.
Just breathe and enjoy those small moments in life as they are gone in the blink of an eye.
Life is short.
