As much as I really don’t want it to, the time to do some final prep for fall has inevitably come. But if it must, today was as good of a beautiful fall day in Wisconsin as you could ask for. For example, if I have to spend the morning with the chainsaw and loppers clearing the deadfall on the side of the school, at least I can appreciate the beautiful maples turning golden around me.
But in doing some land clearing, I discovered we had our first garden crop and didn’t even know it. One cute little baby corn was growing in the back forty. I wonder if I could make a meal out of this?
But alas, all good things must come to an end, and the clouds gathered and the raindrops flew. I made the best of it for awhile, moving inside to do some therapeutic sawing (yes, that is a thing!) Here I’m even recycling some cast off boards into supports. Always looking to save some dough. Eventually, I threw in the towel (but not the saw, that would be bad). A shower, some of Kevin’s specialty White Chili, a good night hanging with my parents, even if my Huskers didn’t do so good this week.
I’ll leave you with my latest find, a little zen butterfly windmill. So relaxing. Maybe I can install this in the living room.
