Fall has come and near gone and we are still working away on the house. We have some siding (board and batten) to finish and a porch to build before the snow falls. Luckily, we are to have milder weather next week and no snow in the forecast yet. We have gravel to spread, too, and I say "Hallelujah" No.more.mud.
I have lots of visiting to do on the blogs I follow as my time has been taken up with outdoor work and little Cora and her skin issues.
She has been diagnosed with miliary dermatitis and the cause is yet to be found.
But we trudge ahead, keeping her comfortable and trying different medications and creams.
And her side-kick, Wilson, is always by her side.
And when he's not by her side he is tracking the crow family that have adopted us.
Did everyone enjoy Halloween this year?
We got to see all our grands at their homes, outside and social-distancing. And it didn't rain. :-)
Of course it's not the same but I was content just to see them in costume and get to enjoy the excitement on their faces.
Here is what I am reading at the moment.
It's a good book and I recommend it for a Christmas gift.
Maybe, just, maybe, if we all behave ourselves we can be together at Christmas. Right now it's looking a bit iffy.
I walked the property and made a fall bouquet for the table.
Pretty and inexpensive.
My favorite neighbour has arrived and at first sight of me he drops and rolls. haha
I wish I could do that but I'd never get up.
David is the King of the Wild Frontier around here. He is out and about all day every day and visits us daily for a hug and a tummy rub.
I'm thinking Christmas now that our Thanksgiving is behind us.
I'll be putting the tree up early this year just to fuel me on. It's a little hard to get in the Christmas spirit when we don't know what lays ahead. Plus if Cora and Wilson bring it down I'll have time to put it up again. ;-)
I'm heading over to say hi and enjoy your blogs.
I wish you all a great start to a new month and let's hope there are better days ahead in many ways.
I need to get used to this new format.
be kind and stay safe,
