Better mood today

 
 
  Hi all, the other day I vented some frustrations and anger on here, I usually try not to do that but sometimes it just comes out.  Its life so I will not delete the post, I have always strive to be open and honest about what all happens in my life on here so at times I may rant and rave or even whine about things :O)   So with that said, in other news we had a blood red moon and a eclipse of the moon last night. lol  like most of you didn't know that already. It was a perfectly clear night for it and it was pretty cool. Even got to see some meteors while watching the moon.  Cant complain about that, didn't even have bugs bothering me either. Too cold I guess.  Thankfully.....  I do not like bugs, namely mosquitoes!! 
 
  I really haven't been up to much, just the usually mowing and getting the last of the vegetable's out of the garden. One of these times Im going to be prepared and plant a fall garden. The deer and other critters have taken a toll on the garden, will be a fence up hopefully next year.  The animals sure are starting to scurry around getting ready for winter, and I'm seeing a lot of migratory birds also. Better get the bird seeds bought.
 
  Went to a auction Saturday, was a lot of nicknack's , some furniture, plus much much more stuff and some hand made quilts.  was sitting with my aunt and uncle and when they would hold up a certain design of a quilt my aunt would say the name of the design on the quilt. I had no idea there was names and types. Was actually pretty cool sitting there with her and her explaining them all too me.   I bid on a couple of them but some went as much as 200 dollars which to my understanding is still really cheap.  later on during the sale they would grab one or two quilts and sell them as they went. On caught my eye and I bid on it, I bought it for 55.00  and I think its amazing. The craftsmanship Patience and work that goes into them is astounding to me. I do not possess the patience or skill to make one, so I will buy mine thank you :O)  I will take a pic of it very soon and post it on here. I brought it home and washed and dried it (on the cloths line ) and then put it straight on the bed that night :O)  I wonder if quilting is going to be a thing of the past? Everyone seems to be in such a hurry and we live in such a "disposable" world that I wonder. I imagine that there will be some out there that will keep it alive, I really hope so.
 
  The weather is turning cooler and the leaves are starting to turn and fall off. I look so forward to the fall and winter temps but it honestly is a ugly time of year with out the greenery. There is a trade off though for when it snows or if we have a ice storm there is beauty in that as well. If theres no snow or ice then its pretty dreary honestly..  My way of thinking is that if its cold, like below freezing temps then there better be some danged snow on the ground :O) 
  There is nothing like the sound of the wind in the trees with the sound of snow or sleet hitting the side of the house while a fire crackles in the wood stove. A window cracked open and the front door standing open (with the screen door glass shut) and the smell of a roast cooking on the stove with some homemade bread or rolls baking.   (no wonder why I weigh too much) lol     Yes, I am ready for winter.    well mostly anyway :O)
 
  I'm also looking forward to work this winter, the guys at work thinks im crazy and they say that after the first winter at work grading the roads to keep them clear of snow will change my mind.  Maybe but for know I am looking forward to it. I have always liked to be the first one to drive down a snow covered road :o) To go out and "bust" snow drifts in the 4x4.  I hope its as fun as I think it may be. If not then oh well :O) it will be my job anyway.  Unfortunately, I cannot carry a firearm with me while working :O( what no better way to work is to be able to hunt during the winter while doing it?  :O)  The bunny rabbits would learn to fear my road grader lol  I say that jokingly but the wild life really doesn't fear the grader. They know to get out of its way but usually they get "just" out of the way, let me go past and they go back out on the road to finish what they were doing or going the way they were down the road.
 
  A friend of mine who I have known all my life and I believe what he says, told me a while back that he was running his Ag sprayer over south of my place a few miles and actually saw a cougar, how cool would that be to see one of those!!   So I have been keeping a eye out while I'm off down in the less traveled and lived areas of my routes.  Will keep you all updated for sure if I see one of those around here :O)

Well all, I have rattled on about enough I imagine :O)  So you all be safe :O)
talk to you all again soon.
