A good day for the first fire in the woodstove of the season.

I'm jealous! I left behind a good woodstove when I sold the house at Keller. Haven't had even a fire place since then, but I will have a fire place at the new house.

Stopped by the mantel place yesterday, and there are too many beautiful choices. I can't decide. I'll take my kids there with me next week and see if they can help me make a decision.

The stone is really gorgeous, Mimi, and I can just imagine it for a fireplace with a natural wood mantle.

Paint colors will be fun, and maybe take some pictures of mantles that you like best so you can coordinate colors and shades. I’m so excited for you!

It is 35 here this morning, so fall has definitely set in and at least a daily fire will be the norm for awhile.

Fire provides visual, physical and emotional comfort...kind of like Miss Lily.

I have a good cord of wood left from the 5-6 of the trees of 2014, so my goal is to use that up this winter and get it off my patio...which I want to replace next spring.

If I run out, I will use the furnace.

Maggie

Hi Gerard!

We are up for the first hard freeze this weekend, and a chance of snow flurries, so I am winterized just in time...also went out and wrestled both garden hoses off this afternoon.

Stay warm.

Maggie

I actually had frost on my car windows and windshield this morning. Average first freeze here is late November, so frost this early was a surprise.

Guess it may be an early winter. I'll blow out the water lines on the Airstream tomorrow and at least be that far towards winterizing.

It's absolutely beautiful here we only had 97 degrees here today. That's warm even for Phoenix Arizona standards. What the heck is going on. I planted a couple of flowers for a fall party and I'm struggling to keep them alive in this heat.

Wow, frost in Texas and 97 in Arizona.

I wish I had a way to blow the lines out on the Interstate, as the entire winterization procedure is one of the most difficult tasks I do that is involved with this little RV.

Lots of hands and knees, on the ground to get to low point valves, reaching under this and that to do whatever...I have done it now 3 times, and I almost have to chant throughout all part of the privilege...seriously.

Hittenstiehl, did you know that delicious Sofia Coppola Blanc de Blanc comes in a lovely, pink, cellophane wrapped bottle as well as the cute little cans? A whole bottle, for about the same price as the 4 pack.

I found a bottle on sale and took it to Moraine View to share...some liked it, some did not, but I love it.

Maggie

Thank you Maggie I will take a look for that. We are having a fall party soon and that will be a nice little addition to the wine bar.

I still have to open all the drain valves to let the water out. I'm just using an air compressor, set to about 40 psi, to encourage the last of the water out of the low points and the dead ends in the plumbing. When we're a bit closer to real below-freezing weather, I'll run some pink stuff into all the lines.

Along with the privilege comes a duty to care for the equipment.

I'll probably have to do this several times, as I usually camp in my daughter's driveway at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and there will be a few more trips down to check on the new house.

I’m ready to put the sturdy-but-not-lovely otter box case for my IPad Mini away for future adventures in climbing and/or daring myself to push my physical limits whilst carrying mini with me....I took it climbing to take photos of petroglyphs at Chaco Canyon, some may recall.

I also wanted a smart case, that will stand for Skype-ing and the occasional movie while traveling.

I found this on eBay..lovely, but inexpensive, with free shipping...the best kind of purchase.

Is it not perfect for me?

Vintage roses... a reminder of love, and life, with my vintage kind of guy.
