Blog Update FAIL
In the midst of the coldest, wettest October on record I was rewarded this week with four days where it didn’t rain all day. Since October usually is the month where we not only have our best weather – warm sunny days and cold nights – but also gorgeous fall color; we save a lot of outdoor work for October. Normally, this is a good thing. This year, not so much.
So I’m spending every spare minute harvesting, mowing, pruning, transplanting, deadheading, emptying and cleaning rain barrels, cleaning and bringing in hoses, finishing the sunporch on Fort Crowage, bringing summertime stuff in and taking winter stuff out – and doing as much distance work with the dogs as I can fit in.
In between there’s produce from the garden to process for the winter, massive amounts of cleaning (a pack of dogs combined with weeks of wet weather makes for a huge mess in the house and training center), house-training Charlie, visits to my orthopod to decide which piece we’ll fix next and more.
I have a few draft posts started but no time to whip them into postable shape. The rain is supposed to hit again this weekend so look for updates then.
