Well the weather quacks were right … it got cold last night. Middle 20s somewhere.

The bicycle ride to work this morning was brisk and invigorating. I got a little cool going down the relatively steep hill right after I left home. But otherwise I was toasty warm.

Thanks in part to this great scarf that a good friend of ours sent us last year.

Our friend sent Noel one too, so we each have a hand-made scarf. It really helps to keep the wind off your face.

And it really makes a big difference as it pre-heats the air that I’m breathing just a little bit. Makes it not quite such a shock the system that way.

Cozy by the fire

Here’s a photo of Milo getting cozy by the wood-stove this morning.

There’s nothing so beautiful to me as a nice bed of glowing hot coals!

I noticed earlier this week that our chicks now have feathers. So I got out the camera and took a photo.

Dalton Days

This past Saturday, our good friend Doulamuse went to the Dalton Days in Coffeyville to demonstrate how to make soap the old fashioned way. Noel went with her and they both dressed as pioneer ladies for the event. Sounds like they had a lot of fun.

Fishing poles and butterflies

09/15/2008 at 2:34 pm (photos)

Back when we spent the day in Missouri, we stopped at a garage sale on the way out there. I found this great looking antique Zebco 33 with a nice looking rod for $4!

I like those old rod and reels. I haven’t seen one in this good a shape in a long time.

Then today I was out poking around in the yard, fiddling with the garden and cutting some more of our wood. And I noticed that there were two butterflies flitting about the marigolds.
