"Snow" is a four letter word!!!

I watered the yard on Monday and Tuesday, it's been so dry and warm. We are just starting to get "color" on the trees around town, my cottonwoods have a few yellow leaves, the elms will last for quite a while still. And today, rainy, nice rain.....tonight it's already down to 36 degrees and I heard the "four letter" "S" word today.....I even plugged in the electric blanket!!

Just last week I gave into rearranging the den, that's where our wood burning stove is. In the summer I like to put plants in there, my pretty water fountain and just "dress it up". That all comes out for winter prep....and firewood is stacked along the rock wall, the chopping block is set out for chopping up the kindling and winter will be underway.... it will no doubt warm up in few days and we'll enjoy those last fall days, but this is the warning that time is short and get to those final jobs of putting away the summer stuff and set the snow shovels out, let's see, I think I put those away in the hay shed.

We enjoyed a nice relaxing in the hot tub in the early evening yesterday. My first time since in about 3 months, due to the surgery, etc. It was so nice, we had deer wandering on the hill behind the house and caught a glimpse of the fox. I like to kick the water temp. up to about 102 and just soak up the heat. We really do have a "red neck" set up, but what the heck, we have a hot tub!!!

Oh yes!!! How 'bout those Broncos "kickin butt" in the Raiders own house!!! I don't get too excited about football, since we lost Elway it just hasn't been the same, but I do enjoy a good Raider thump!

Ya'll take care, I'll get a photo if it snows.

I'm going to have to come over there and wash your mouth out with soap for using that darn four letter word SNOW!. I hate to think about it. Each year it gets worse, thinking about it that is. We turned the heat on last evening a little. Have a great week-end.

I miss the snow. Since I've been in California it has only snowed once over the 17 years I've been here. It was weird to see little piles of snow resting on ripe oranges. The farmers weren't too happy about it, but the school kids were elated (me included)! Now, I don't want 9-10 months of snow, but I wish it would snow after Thanksgiving and stay until about the end of January. That would be perfect!
