Indian Summer

  Indian Summer == glorious summer weather after the frost.  It has arrived.  Am I enjoying it.  Nope. 

  I've been snowed under a paperwork blizzard.  And then a touch of the queasies arrived -- ya, lovely thing to wake up to in the middle of the night -- cancelled events for the day, but kept working on cleaning up the paperwork blizzard -- should have stayed home .....

took a ride on the ATV when I got home -- the prairie is preparing for winter --
    leaves are coming down ...
    berries are drying up ...
    deer are in the patch fatting up ...
    pastures and grasses are browning up ...
    harvest is coming to an end ...
    haven't seen (heard) a goose for days ...
    saw a fuzzy brown caterpillar ... his black band was 1/3 of his body
    maples are a deep deep red -- almost maroon

  Today is a new day ... shorts and sandals ...  attitude adjustment. 

  Might just have to mow the lawn today .... (for real). 
  Last time this season --
