It's been a crazy-busy week here. I worked 6 days straight and then ran straight to help out at the haunted house for the Halloween party yesterday afternoon. I was drafted to serve as the semi-dead alien in the haunted house since some of the high schoolers who were supposed to be there weren't able to make it (illness and SATs). That combined with all the usual business of cooking, laundry, cleaning house, etc. made me a bit cranky. So, this afternoon, since it was a gorgeous Fall day, K9 and I took a walk around the property. It was a lovely chance to recharge my mental and emotional batteries. Here are a few sights from our walk that I thought I'd share. I hope you don't mind pictures of fall colors.
Down in the valley....
K measures the depth of a pool (about a foot deep!)
Sitting on his bridge.
Yup, he built this one himself!
He calls it Toad-Oak bridge.
It's a lovely spot for listening to the running water.
The leaves are lovely!

I hope you all have a peaceful week. Halloween is creeping up on us. I've got to find time sometime to make a trip to my parent's farm. Mom called and said they have pears for us. Yummy. Maybe Friday, I've got the day off since I worked yesterday- we'll see.
