Colorful

The woods are getting more colorful.  We still have not had a hard freeze.  In my opinion the best Fall color happens after a freeze.  It rained a bit yesterday.  There might be some snow in the air on Saturday…it should melt when it hits the ground.

I have taken to napping in the afternoon with an alarm clock, so I don’t sleep for hours. I am feeling less tired which is an great improvement from the total exhaustion I have been feeling for months.  Lyme’s can kick your butt.  My cold is better too, not totally gone but much better.

One of these days I might wake up and feel like a real person again.  I am hopeful.

I put some things on the calendar that were totally me, one evening next door neighbor Jo and I went out looking for colorful trees. Girl time, we took Chance along ..he loves Jo.  We saw 18 deer.  

Minnesota backroads

Yesterday I met fellow blogger Judy who is a volunteer over at Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge… we had a nice lunch at Ice Cracking Lodge.  It is always good to meet fellow bloggers!  Soon she will be headed to a warmer climate in Louisiana and then Texas before heading back north again next spring.  She is kinda stuck in limbo right now waiting for a repairman to fix her fridge.  She wants to escape the snow…I can’t blame her I want to escape it too.

Today I have more museum business to take care of, it seems never ending.  I will set up my office upstairs later in the day and after that we will probably look for more pretty trees:)

  7. Your colors are beautiful! That was one of the few things I enjoyed on my visit to Seattle (some day maybe I'll have a moment and the inclination to blog about it). There were a few trees that were bright and cheerful in the gloom and rain of the northwest!
    Happy Museum Ending!

  12. Minnesota is beautiful in fall. Your photos are wonderful. Wish the colors stayed a little longer. The season is too short.

  13. Lyme's disease is a real bummer. Fatigue is hard to live with. Resistance is lowered. I hope this thing comes to an end.
    Now I'm just watching to see who gets snow first...you or me!

  14. I am sorry to hear about your Lyme disease. I love afternoon naps and fall colors. Love the new photos in your header. We had our first snow fall but thankfully it has melted and believe it or not I still have some geraniums blooming!
