Burrrr, Fall Has Fell

The storms that dumped boo-koo rainfall on Minnesota and Wisconsin passed over Michigan as well; only without depositing as much rain.  Once the last of the storms cleared during the day yesterday, the cooler temperatures came flooding in.  It was 78* when we woke yesterday morning and it’s 51* this morning making it a real live Northern Michigan fall day.  It has been windy over the past couple of days as well with wind gusts in the 40 to 50 MPH range.  I guess that will continue into today as well.  Oh well, we are snug as bugs in a rug in our little house in the woods.

Yesterday we made a three hour drive to Levering, Michigan to visit Judy’s brother and sister-in-law, John and Della and then, after a three hour visit and lunch, we turned around and headed back.  We took the back roads home so it took us a little longer to return making it a 10 hour day in all.

The leaves here in Northern Michigan are slowly beginning to change colors; it will be another week, or so, before they reach their peak.  There are lots of hardwoods in Michigan which make for a very pretty fall each year, but fall is just waaaaay too short of a season.

Thanks to everyone who sent good wishes for my baby.  She is feeling a little better, but will be glad to get this all behind her.  By mid week she should have the results of the ultrasound and blood work and know where we need to go from there.  The worst thing that could happen is having to have the gallbladder removed, but then it’s just a spare part anyway and could be removed via Laparoscopic surgery.

I must go now and let Miss Kitty out of the barn.  We “stuffed” her in there last night so that she wouldn’t have to be out in the cold (I think she would have rather stayed out in the cold).  Anywhoo, that’s all for now.  Take care and have a great weekend.
