Seize The Day!

I am so glad I took the photos last week while driving home.

Last night we had a lot of wind and this morning, all the bright leaves were gone :(
It looks like fall hasn't begun in some areas which could mean we get a 2nd shot at fall but in others most of the trees had already turned color and so now almost everything is bare.
Here are a few of the images I played with from the other day.

I hope you enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

Fall Beauty and my drive home

The road I take to work!

Isn't this beautiful?

Fall has always been my favorite season but I have always been so busy and distracted I have never been able to truly enjoy it.

This year is a different story.

This is the view out my front door!

This is a corn field I pass on my way to work.

This is the corn field across the street for my house.

I have more photos to share but only a few minutes to stay on the Internet today. I am missing all my blogs so much. In a month my pay checks from the new job will be consistent and I hope to purchase some kind of card through our cellular co. so we can have Internet EVERYWHERE! WooHoo.
Last week my wonderful husband had supper waiting for me when I got home each evening. Being new empty Nester's, combined with moving into the new place make us feel like we are just starting out.

It's actually a lot of fun.

OK time is up here. I'm at our local grocery store with a Starbucks. Lots of screaming kids and babies. I'm ready to head to the country and take Cooper for a walk down that beautiful road.
I'll check in in a couple more days and share some artwork I created the other day.

A Little Complaint and more Good News

 I don't want to sound ungrateful here. 
Life really is getting so much better.
We don't have Internet yet.

I love my house
I love living in the country
I miss my Internet!

I came into town to do laundryy and to put a very uplifting blog entry on here.
I started the laundry
I had 40 minutes
I already had it written out so this should work.
I went to Tim Hortons, ordered a sandwich and sat down to log on....

It wouldn't let me.
I rebooted, reloaded, turned my laptop on and off, on and off.
I messed around until I was out of time
I felt like this lady but I controlled myself.

so, back to the laundrymat, put clothes into dryer.
1 hour - this should be enough time.
drive across street to McDonalds
order a snack size McFlurry (got to support the people who provide the wifi)
Log on success!
Start to catch up on my friends and a girl behind me is applying for something on line and is reading all of it to someone on the phone. really?
Couple across from me talking softly then she gets real loud.
She is on her phone.
I put on head phones to drown out these rude people and I can still hear the kid to my left, the man (with the loud lady)  has a ringger on his phone that goes off and sounds like a siren. 
I start looking out the window for the emergency vehicle.
Another guy sits near me and starts talking on his phone, loudly.
Remember, I have music in my ears now.
Now a team meeting accross the dinningroom.

Forget it. 
I'll write my uplifting entry when I am more in the mood.
Maybe when my $700.00 check comes from the colon test study I did comes in and I can pay for internet at our new place.
Yeah, that is another story.
2 colonoscopys for a study for a camera pill rather than the traditional scope.

I had to do both

to compare

I don't have to tell you I had never had one done before I signed up.
O well, I got paid $700.00 (not here yet) and 5 pollops removed.
I can't consentrate here so I'll just leave you with this entry and a bit of good news.
I got a new job!
The original reason for coming to town, to update you all and leave you uplifted. Like I felt.
I'll get back with you with that one.  New job starts tomorrow so it maybe a few days before I can find a quiet place to blog.  I'll shoot for Starbucks after work on Wed.
