Since I haven’t officially started The Backwater Primer, I thought this is a good day as any. So let’s dive right in, shall we?
Fall has settled into western NY and the ground is covered with beautiful red, orange, and yellow leaves. We have the prettiest landscape the east coast can offer here in WNY!
Gone are the long summer days, the warm nights, the pretty flowers. Now the temperatures have dipped down to the 30s and we have already had our first frost. I love the colors and decorations of this time of year, but I don’t care much for the other seasonal attributes like the cold, the snow, and just the long winter months. I wish we could skip right through Autumn and go into Spring. Or else have a long, ten year summer like in the Game of Thrones. Oh wait, then we would have ten years of Winter, presumably to give the earth enough time to regenerate herself. Nah… I guess there is no way to get out of winter except to move south. How I do miss the sun when she is gone!
Chris got a raise at work so things should be a little bit better for us. It’s not much but it sure was heck of a lot better than what he was making prior. He had an opportunity to leave The Bistro but he decided not to which was the prompting of the raise by his boss, who finally realized how much he needs Chris working for him and what a valuable worker he is.
We are settling in well with our new dog, Isabelle. Or should I say that she is settling in well. Isabelle loves to sleep and she especially loves Chris too 🙂 I am so glad we were able to adopt her from the SPCA and give her a forever home 🙂
Today was nice. 50s warm. I was able to get laundry out on the line and get some blankets washed. The sun was shining on the line out back and there is a heavy breeze. It is suppose to be absolutely wonderful on Saturday. 60s…hey, I will take that!
As before, I would like to do some product reviews and try my hand at book reviewing too. Hopefully some will come my way.
I found some more pictures on my phone that I need to get edited and up on my photoblog. I have some fascinating pictures of a (an unwelcomed) visitor and others of them that I cannot wait to show you guys.
Tonight for our supper is spaghetti, meatballs, and garlic bread! (yay!)
I hope everyone is having a great Autumn so far. Thanks for visiting and if you aren’t a follower yet, I invited you to do so to stay up to date with what’s going on around here and what’s to come. I have some great stuff planned. Please also give me a like too please 🙂
