    I'm taking Primatene and drinking hot coffee to try to get rid of bronchitis. Yuck! Watching rain fall on the pond. We might have our first frost early Monday morning, so I'll be interested to see what happens to the plants around the pond.

    Would love to work outside today; it is going to be beautiful. Instead we are scheduled to do "tastings" outside of The Artisan Exchange (one of our customers) in Milford, PA at the town's semi-annual Toast to Milford. Milford is a quaint, scenic town on the Delaware River in Northeast, PA.

    I was hoping for a warm, sunny day so I could get some yard clean up done. Instead I got cold and drizzly. Blech. I guess it's grocery shopping and errands day.

    @bagsmom feel better soon!

    @MoonShadows Sounds like fun, hope you enjoy it!

    @Lisak1 I don't blame you! I can work in the cold, but drizzling it's a definite deal breaker for me!

    @sissy Have fun cuddling your babies!

    Going for my walk, then we are heading over to a friends grand opening of her cat rescue.

    Free food and drinks

    Hey guys, can't pass up a free hot dog and chips, with a soda. Come see what the animal rescue it all about and meet some of the critters. We have a 30+ year old mustang mare, a donkey named Don Quioxte, fur, fins, feathers, scales and turtles that we have taken in, It is turning into a regular petting zoo around here. Check the Events section. This Saturday at 2 pm. At least the the weather is supposed to be spectacular for this time of year. Help us spread the net for the cat enclosure. Door prizes. Games, and meet the neighbors face to face and see what we are doing for the community. Please RSVP on the event posting so I don't run out of goodies.

    Cold and rainy so no yard work today (we still have lots of leaves that haven't dropped yet)

    Television quit working so we went to Best Buy to get a new one. Still amazes me how thin and light tv's are these days. Hopefully I will have time to watch Stranger Things on Netflix in between laundry, water changes and cage cleaning. Gotta multitask around here :LOL:

    Just went out to check the ponds. Temperature is 41 degrees outside, pond water is 56 degrees. Fish are active and still eating.

    My new above ground fancy pond is at 60 degrees (I assume it's warmer than the in ground pond because it's covered) those fish are active and doing well so far.

    well nice day clouds and sun and checked all the fluids in all 3 cars .Chi's were running around the back yard barking at the deer in the woods .The deer just ignore them ,poor little bossy guys get no satisfaction in scaring them ..I wish I could do a video or pics but I could be charged with baiting deer if someone see's it .Funny no gun and don't eat meat and it is my woods .I gave them fresh water and another bale of straw to lay on .
