Our spooky dog!!!

Her Harley collar this Halloween season reads "Bad to the bone" and her legs are wrapped like she had been in a bar room fight. Ever try to put a bandage on a dog's elbow?

In case you don't know her, this is not a costume. Annie has been fighting Thrombocytopenia, also known as Evan's Disease for about two months now. This condition refers to an abnormally low blood -concentration of platelets, which are blood cells that promote blood clotting after injury to the lining of the blood vessels causing bruising and internal bleeding. She has been through weekly blood draws, a ton of different medications, bladder infections, more meds, and now has two ulcered spots on her elbows. Most recently, her blood cell count and platelets are up and our bank account is low.
Our girl is worth every penny and so much more.

See you next summer!

We were overdue for closing up the pool this year, but it is done.
I'll miss my poolside views when it is 20 below this winter.
Annie hangs tough and soaked up some Vitamin D today.

Closing of the camp for the winter.

I'm going to miss our little camp site for the winter.
Although I do believe some ice fishing will take place this winter.

It's time to break out the blaze orange because I would not want to be mistaken for a deer person.

Michael Drive update!

Dollar Store fence decorating.
A view of upper Michael Drive.
It's time to put away the yard bitches.
If I only had a brain.

Playing with fire!

Our new stove was installed today. We researched pellot stoves, wood stoves, and propane.
Wood is too much effort, messy, and makes me nervous. The cost of corn pellets is ridiculous and a corn pellet stove is $2,000.00. Matt snagged this beauty at a deal and it heats our house with propane. No mess, no fuss, and a remote control! We love it!

I painted this sign this weekend. Well at least I meant to, but then we went to Marden's and got it for $8.00.

I love baking this time of year!
