I am sitting on the front porch as I write this, Saturday afternoon. The fall colors are just beautiful. From where I sit, I can see the woods to the east, southeast, and south, along with the golden soybean field. We have a pretty strong breeze right now, so the chimes are busy serenading the dog and me. Mr. Cranberry is at an auction, Jazzie and I are enjoying the gorgeous fall weather, with the exception of the occasional Asian beetle or whatever those ghastly little lady bugs are that swarm this time of year.
We had the outside of the house sprayed last week, so we no longer get armies of Asian beetles crawling across our ceilings or
The day the guy came around to spray our house, I asked him how long after spraying before it would be safe for the dogs to go out. He said 'Half an hour.' Then I asked him how long before it would be safe for me to go out. He said, 'Twenty minutes, unless you plan on licking the walls.' So, naturally, I waited an hour. Then I let Jazzie out. FIRST thing she did was lick the wall. No kidding. She walked out the door, turned, and licked the wall! I couldn't believe it. I made her go back indoors. What kind of a dog licks the wall??? Anyway, she's fine, and I gave her a dog cookie to get that taste out of her mouth.
'Maples and Cattails'
Those chimes are medium-low tones, and with the great breeze and the sound of the occasional car driving past, I could easily take a nap out here, but winter will give me enough time for naps. I'd hate to waste the gorgeous fall weather for a nap.
'Out of Commission'
I hope you all had a nice weekend. You better get to Wisconsin fast if you want to see this area at the peak of color. Should be sometime this week.
