School Frenzy Morning
Aaaah ... the morning rush is just over (happy sigh). Nathan headed out the door with a full tummy and a lunch box filled with love. Summer is winding down here at the Mangy Moose Lodge. Our guest room has emptied out too and now it's time to sit back, pour another cuppa joe and unwind! DH has one more month of being my man servant before he once again is gainfully employed. That was a short retirement (May - September) ... but alas, he's completed my honey-do list to a "T". With Ann starting college in three more weeks the Mr. wants to "help" with her finances.
Summer found us taking a 'staycation' (stay at home vacation). Visions of traveling to Glacier National Park have been put on hold. The opportunity to reclaim the weed patch surrounding our fire pit arose and stole our vacation funds; dipping into savings so early in our retirement was out of the question. Bon fires this autumn will be all the more enjoyable minus the weeds.
I'm off to the farm and the hair salon this morning. The fruit of my labor (garden) will not sustain us this winter ... and the 'gray hair' experiment is still in progress ;)
