Every stinking time I think "Okay. Whew. All I have to do is make it three more days and it's going to rain and cool off and summer will finally be over." It teases me with a cool down and then right back into the 80s it goes. We hit 86 the other day...in the FOURTH WEEK OF OCTOBER!
It sure looks like fall...
Even sort of like a pretty fall...
But this is Baaxter hogging the fan like he does all summer...at 7:30 in the morning...on October 20th. Hershey looked so miserable the night before (how on earth could it be that humid when it's so dry and crispy?!?) that I finally had to do the ole cookie test to make sure he was okay enough that I could go to bed. If you don't perk up when the cookie box comes out, we call the vet. Highly scientific...but actually very accurate ;-).
These pictures were taken yesterday morning. It's cold and raining today. We'll see if it lasts or if it's just a fake cold down for the big neighborhood Pumpkin (Pumpkin with a P) Party this weekend. The 10 day forecast is encouraging...but I've seen that before.
The Punkin's (no extra P) Patch Hug a Sheep/Open Farm Day is next weekend! I thought about trying to take a new "promo" picture this year, but how on earth can you beat last year?
Actually, that whole post is pretty cute. I love to go back and revisit the good times. Even some of the bad times. The link to the Ewenice and Renny tree had me crying this morning, but it was such a beautiful gift.
You know what - leave a comment telling us one/some of your favorite old posts and that will be the third calendar drawing. Petunia can draw for that one Monday or Tuesday. And for anyone wanting a calendar but didn't win one, I promise I'll get the Farm Shop updated this weekend!
