Uffda the weather could be better. The wind chill yesterday was WAY below zero. I will guess it was –20 with the wind chill. The wind was blowing 30 miles per hour and snow and dirt (Snirt) was in the air. What snow we had is now a unpleasant beige/brown color from all the North Dakota dirt it picked up and brought to Minnesota.
On the trip to town I figured out in no time at all that I need to get out my parka…in November…that really sucks.
We took my car in for service the Check Engine Light came on once during our trip and then it went off. We were almost home when it came on again. We made an appointment. Yesterday we drove both vehicles to town, Chance and I waited for Far Guy whilst he dropped off the car. He came out with a big grin on his face…”They said that the vehicle is registered to you and only you could request service.” long pause… I told them “She is waiting in the freaking car outside, I can have her come in and deal with you…they declined.” The car is still under warranty… a Pollution Control Valve on the Valve Cover was leaking so they replaced the whole valve cover.
The Craft Sale was last Saturday, I sold some “stuff.” It was a fun day, I got to visit with a number of people that I had not seen in awhile.
Noah went deer hunting on Saturday, he told me he didn’t enjoy sitting so still watching for a deer. I told him that it was okay…not everyone is a deer hunter. My Dad finally got his buck on Sunday afternoon. Josh my nephew got a beautiful trophy buck…and I heard that one was on it’s way to the taxidermist!
I haven’t taken any photos lately…so far the snow and cloudy skies are uninspiring for me.
My baby brother sent me this photo with permission to use it on the blog.
Mount Hood with Mount Jefferson in the background.
He took it out the plane window last Friday afternoon as he was heading to Oregon…probably for a Beavers game and to take his wife out for her birthday! She reaches one of those milestone birthdays this week.
