Fall winds are blowing already!! It has been around mid-40's here in the morning! Brrrrr! Makes for a cold, cold walk. So I wear a flannel coat; ear muffs, and gloves!! Oh and long pants!! No more shorts! Dang!!! I was working on my leg tan too! Sheesh!!
|Sunrise, September 2010|
My walking has progressed to 4.2 miles per day....around 6 days a week. Sometimes 7 !! Weight wise, I am on a plateau! That sucks! Stuck at 158 lb. weight loss! Sigh!!
See the white dot in the mid left on the photo? That is one of the Guinea Hens!! Just as I was taking it's pic...it moved away! Figures!!
Took down my 4th of July and Labor Day decorations and am now working on Fall/Halloween!! I love Halloween!! Here is my tree!!
See! Not scary at all! But the rest of my decorations are!! Ha! Will show them when I have them all set up! Hopefully by next week. Oh! And you can see our new big screen TV in this pic. 52 inches!! So sweet !!!
Went to Santa Fe on Friday and it was a beautiful day. And they were in the midst of a Festival! How cool is that? Here are a couple of pics. I will show more later on in the week. Too many for today!!
|Cathedral on the Square|
|LaFonda Hotel Restaurant|
|Indians selling their jewelry|
The Cathedral is right on the Square and it is huge!! And as you can see; beautiful as well. We ate at LaFonda's restaurant and hardly anyone was in there. It is usually packed! But due to the Festival, people were all crammed on the square listening to music and eating from street vendors!!
The Indians' sell their jewelry and pots under the portico of the Governors' Palace. So they were in their glory during this street fair!! Tons of people walking through the portico oooooing and awwwwing over their fabulous creations!! We had a blast!!
Well it has been two weeks!! Count them! TWO WEEKS! And instead of this....
We have this....
Our dryer...bless it's heart!! It is all dismantled and still not working. They are having trouble getting the right parts!! So now if they can't jerry-rig a front inside panel, the whole new panel will cost over $250.00!! I can get a new (although boring) white dryer for around $350.00!!! Decisions...decisions! Or do we suck it up and get a whole new pair!!?? Red ones!!! Oh don't tempt me!!!
We have a locust tree near our front patio wall called Golden Rain. Right now she looks so beautiful. Seed pods have formed and when the wind blows...it sounds like rain is falling. So cool!!
Isn't she gorgeous!! I am going to harvest some of the seeds and see if I can start some new trees. Sure would love to have more of these on the property!!
Well, have to go do a load of towels now! Get to hang them on my back fence! Sigh!! Nothing like stiff towels to invigorate you after a nice hot shower!! They may smell nice but oh are they scratchy!! Ha!
Don't forget to stop over to The Un Mom and visit with Keely and all the other Randomizers!!
Have a magical and blessed day!!
