Wonderful weather, and another fun busy day!

Where are we today ?
         Had a great nights sleep and up by 5:30 am as usual. Don't want to miss any daylight hours ya know. Got our coffee fix and computing done then I head off into town to chat with the locals for a few  minutes. Sure is a foggy morning, school buses cancelled today.
        But back home we made a plan. Took the grass cutting machine down to road to mow some grass. And after a few errands the grass was almost dry by noon and I proceeded to start the process.
          Suzie took her Dad and Mom to Stratford for some follow up appointments after his hip replacement surgery.
Grasshopper ready to go 
too much fun here
almost done
oops a bearing on the deck decided to quit
            Good thing we got the other mower running yesterday, so back down the road on the trailer and finished off this area.
           At 5 pm have a grandson with a  hockey practice in town so we gotta watch that for a while when we are in the area as well. 
Arenas that we are used to , he is improving by leaps and bounds!
        On the way back home we saw another hot air balloon taking off over the fields here, so nice to see.
          Back home now and Sandy has a nice fire going, burning leaves in this huge fire pit that they have here. We joined her for a while, just because we could. But then time for me to whip up a bite to eat for supper.
Wonderful campfire
         I found some leftover roast pork in our freezer, from a pig roast we had this summer, heated up in a gravy mix, smashed up a couple taters and nuked some frozen peas, we had a very nice tasty, meal. Perfect for a cool fall evening.
hot pork sandwich, yummy
           That was it for another very busy day here with more awesome weather.
           Hey did I say thanks for stopping by for a visit? If not, thanks bunches and y'all come back now hear?
            Soon we heading south, Yippee!!!

  3. George you are going to miss all that fun you are having cutting the grass. Maybe you should bring the Grass-hoper with you down South. Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  4. You certainly did have a lot of fog. At least it looked like most of it cleared up. Looks like you're having way too much fun. Almost time for you to get those wheels rolling again.

  5. You amaze me with your early mornings George! The odd time I wake up that early I find myself nodding off for a nap by 3:00.

  7. I don't know what you mean by...school buses cancelled. Is school closed too? When we taught, our schools had to provide transportation. If it was too foggy or snowy for the buses to run, school was canceled.

    A fire sounds wonderful.

    1. The majority of the students can walk to school, but the country kids need to be bused in from a few miles away. If to much fog or bag weather the buses will be cancelled, but school remains open.

  8. Awww...that picture of the mower made me a little sad. We had a Grasshopper zero turn mower and I loved cutting the grass with it. It was such a zippy thing and so much fun to cut the grass with it.

  9. I imagine it is a safety issue with the school bus situation. better have the kids driven by parents or not go to school than have a school bus accident.

    That outdoor fire pit looks lovely and cozy.
