Forget about frost on the pumpkin, we know summer is over when the snow is on the lawn chairs. This happened the first week of October. It didn't bring a hard freeze so we still have blooming flowers. Saturday we plan to blow out the sprinkler system and drain the pump, that freeze will be here soon.

It didn't happen, our Love and Logic class was cancelled. No one signed up. That is a first, but just as well. I am going to try to get into a class next Thursday...Making balloon animals. Now doesn't that sound like a blast. Hope I can actually get in, deadline for enrollment has passed.
Second grandson came early. Adam Todd was born to Blake and Kim on Thursday, Oct 13 at 12:35. Everyone is doing well. They went home Saturday.

I add a couple things to my schedule this week. On Thursday a friend and I begin a Community education class. We have been doing these for a couple years now. Our class is "Becoming a Love and Logic Parent This site has several articles to read if you click on the "article" tab. We have had classes with as many as 12 people and as few as 3. We present the same material, but each class is different. We get together Wednesday after church supper to go over our material. Our class runs for 6 weeks.
I am already busy with Yellowstone Harmony on Tuesday evenings. We are adding a couple Christmas songs to our repertoire. That will be great fun.
Some time during the week I work on sewing projects. I have cut back on what I let people bring to me, but I have several long-time clients that come regularly. I finished the last of those projects Yesterday!! Now on to Christmas sewing, the fun stuff.

Winter has descended upon us. We are having a blizzard, not the Dairy Queen kind!
Our area is supposed to get 3 to 6 inches of snow. I had to go to Cody tonight for singing and we drove back in lousy conditions.
This is messing up beet harvest, it rained yesterday and the fields are already quite muddy.

Summer is over, we brought the tomatoes in this afternoon. They are all separated, the red and turning ones are in a bucket. The green are in storage boxes in the cold room downstairs. My goal is to have ripened tomatoes for Thanksgiving dinner; it worked last year. If I get ambitious in the next day or two I will chop them with the jalapeƱos we picked and make salsa.
