|Getting ready for winter heating|
I've enjoyed the colors of the trees and foliage on my daily drive to the office each day. Tractors are in the fields, "bean heads" at the ready, and have been harvesting corn in some areas as well. Our harvest this year has been from our 3 tomato plants, which delivered plenty for our sandwiches, a few jars of tomato jam, and "dainties" for our hens! Our flower garden has flowers - and the sun in the woods does not allow us to have extra space for a good vegetable garden. But we've had a harvest of a different kind - a harvest of fallen trees! We've been cutting and splitting on and off this past summer, when time, heat and humidity allow. We still have some wood to split yet.

My drive home last night was a nightmare. "ART PRIZE" was going on downtown, with all of its various venues, and thousands of people wanting to get off the expressway to find a parking space to see the artistic creations, and to vote for their favorite Artist. Big money involved on the streets of Downtown Grand Rapids! Then, a huge traffic jam...an accident that slowed traffic for miles. Even the southbound lanes were slowed to a crawl, because of "gawkers" trying to see the wreckage! I got off as soon as I heard on the radio what was causing the mess, but it didn't help me one iota! I think I headed out into a mess that was just as bad - the cars wanting to park to see Art Prize, AND local college students going to and from their classes! Oh dear!
So, for a job that should get me home about 5:30pm, I arrived home at 6:30pm, and look what I found after my tiring day???
