This is a photo I took one evening and you can see the date on it. That day it was so windy! I do mean super-windy. If it wasn't nailed down then it was likely blown away. I was hoping that the oak tree in the yard would let go of it's leaves (it was blowing perfectly to blow them over the hill that day), but they clung on with all their strength and might. It just wasn't their time I guess. They waited until a few days later to fall so they'd be sure to land in the yard and not fall over the hill. Last Monday night the moon was shining so bright, and it was so light outside that I decided to rake some leaves before the predicted rain came. I could see fine without a light. I got the leaves that were mostly in front of the house and I made so many trips carrying a tarp full of leaves and tossing them over the hill. I'm so glad I did that, because the rains came, and now I have that many leaves already gone.

Things around here have been pretty routine for us lately. Last week I visited the doctor since I had a sore throat and I didn't want it to develop into anything worse.
I did see a couple of deer on our road lately. Both times one crossed in front of me at the same place. Both times it was misting rain as well. I have seen deer on our road before but it's not very often. Right now it's hunting season for the poor deers and they are moving around a lot. They say they don't move around because it's hunting season but because it's mating season; but I think if someone was hunting for me that I would move around a lot too!

I'll leave you with a sign, and I hope everyone has a very wonderful Thanksgiving! We do have so much to be thankful for.

Blogging and Blogging Friends

I have been blogging since October 1, 2005. The first person to comment was Cliff. In fact I actually found his blog.......I have no clue as to how....but reading his blog I was thinking that he seemed like such a nice guy with such a nice family. So I started blogging. Back then I thought you had to have a blog to comment on other blogs! It has taken me awhile to figure out things and there is still so much I don't know how to do. Some people have neat headers and they change them for the seasons. I have no idea how to do that and I'd be afraid to try for fear I'd lose my whole blog or mess it up so badly it couldn't be fixed.

I have been lucky to meet some of my blogging friends and that is such a wonderful thing about blogging. There are so many nice people out there in blogland. In fact there are so many nice blogs that it's impossible to follow all of them. I mean, unless you want to spend ALL your time on the computer! I don't think you could follow all of them even if you did!

Last Friday I got to see
Jerry, who has been a blogging friend for quite some time. This was the 4th time that I have met him. He stopped by here on his way to another Blog Meet in TN. I think Jerry has probably met more bloggers than most! He likes to travel and therefore, gets around to the areas where his blogging friends live. It's always a pleasure to see him!
