A Misty Morning

When I went out to the barn there were fine little droplets hitting my skin.  Sure hope our hay got baled yesterday.
 Cleaned the stalls and got everything set up for tonight....same old routine.

 Before class I checked out the peaches and plums, which are right in front of the Studio.
 3 little peaches had fallen on the ground and were still in pretty good shape.
 Picked them and a few plums for my class.
 It remained foggy for awhile.

Everyone arrived at 10:30.
Tina and Sandy always bring treats for the dogs and they get very excited as soon as they come through the Studio door.  I swear, even in the house, they know it's class day.

 During the month of October, we will be having our annual show.  This year we are very fortunate to be back at A Different Path Gallery.

 Met my friend Cheryl for lunch and had a quiet afternoon when I got back to the farm.
Ben arrived a little before 7 to reset the shoes on Angel and Maggie, but it has been postponed for a week as Angel is still off.

 I ended up putting Berlin and Abbe in early

and Angel became very anxious while Maggie was outside the front paddock.
Her lameness did not stop her from running around.
 Berlin wondered what the heck was going on.

 Karen ended up doing evening chores....thank you very much.

Today Gary picked the rest of the cabbage (2 half bushels)
 and grabbed the remaining plums off the tree.
Everything is organic...no sprays...no nuthin'.
 I brought all the masks up to the house for a good washing.
 After having a very grey day, the sunset was another beauty.

Night all.

Sunset and Moonshine

Here we go again.  I can't upload any photos!  So frustrating.
Ooooopps!  I'm back.

Hurried through morning chores as

 I had an appointment in Sagawa Park at 9am.
The Art & Aesthetics Committee was meeting with Rick Muto, who has been contracted to paint a mural 7'x35'.  The head of the DPW, Chair of the Parks Committee and Mayor were there to help us figure out the logistics of installing it next spring.  It's going to be quite something.
 After that we went over to the Village Hall to look at the drawings.
This is a huge undertaking and will show the history of our village.

 Got home in time for lunch, took a nap and then
worked on dinner.  I've been very hungry for Spanish Rice so I grabbed some onions, peppers, carrots and tomatoes from the garden and got to work.

 At the very end I added a little grated cheese.
 Served it with a salad and we were good to go.
 Had to do chores early as I had a meeting tonight.

 About that time, the sun started blasting away at the barn.

 Such a glow.
 Tucked the girls in and kept taking pictures on my way over to Pat's house.

 A wild look to the west....
and an hour and a half later, the moon was calling.
Night all.
