Good morning gang, there`s a fresh pot perking so come on in and have a sit-down.
It`s a glorious day here in the hills of Pennsylvania. The sun is shining and it`s fall all over! Leaves are just beginning to tint and a crisp kiss of a chill is in the air. Actually yesterday I had to start the truck up a few minutes before we left for the school bus to get rid of the ice. Ah yes, that time of year is creeping up on us here in PA. Speaking of creeping, we`ve had a few odd things happen here the past few days. Creepy disappearances and odd destructive poltergeist type things…..
Miss Yodeling has been the target of this ghostly presence, having her MP3 charger come up missing and the charger for her cell phone mysteriously riddled into bits. Amazingly I have a photograph of the mischievous specter. Please don`t let her innocent appearance fool you; this little imp is pure devilment!
I know, it`s hard to imagine that Lu-Lu would do such things, but she was caught red-pawed yesterday on top of Miss Yodeling`s dresser, trying to swipe ponytail holders and/or the brand new cell phone charger I picked up just that morning in town! Thankfully the MP3 charger was found underneath Miss Yodeling`s desk. Needless to say both chargers are now in a drawer and hopefully the devilment will abate.
Other than the spooky feline stuff all has been pretty serene here. I`m thrilled to say I finished my book and it is now in the hands of my editor! *Does happy goatherder clog dance* I foresee many red marks and at least another revision or two before I submit it to the publishing company I`ve chosen. I`m hoping to see some preliminary sketches from the two artists that expressed an interest soon as well! I will keep you all up-to-date as this process moves along, since it`s all new to me and I`m finding it very exciting!
Last night Mister and I took to the garden for another round of harvesting. Miss stayed inside due to a nasty cold settling in. That`s pretty standard. Back to school one week and already sick. It was a beautiful evening with a rustling wind that made us both tug on a flannel shirt. We picked three fifty pound feedbags of silver queen for my sister-in-law to put into her freezer.
More corn stalks were needed and our pumpkins had to be picked as well.
We cut down enough corn stalks for a feeder full for the goats and a wagon load for Patty. They promptly dove in like hogs in a freshly filled trough!
Today looks like a laundry day for me after I visit with my blogging buddies. I may whittle a bit on some fan fiction then tonight we`re going to settle in and watch Thor on DVD. Yes, I made a trip to Wal-Mart earlier in the week just to pick it up. I am such a comic nerd!
So, how`s things in your neck of the woods?
