Cool fall rains

It has been nice and cool for the past few days. With some rain almost daily. We have had enough I guess to settle the dirt down where we covered over the root cellar and contoured the hill. Jason got the grass seed sowed today and then we got another light shower after that. So the seed should sprout and not get washed away. We still have a good bit of clean up and raking to do to really call the area finished. But that will be after some drying time.
The trees are taking on their fall colors right now and are gorgeous. Next week our temps here are supposed to drop to the 40's at night. That's almost cool enough to turn on the heat. Well I sure am not ready for that. Where the heck did my summer go?
I made some of the Pina Colada jam today and dang was that stuff good. Was thinking it would make a fine treat on top of some homemade ice cream. Now if I just had an ice cream freezer.
I will be leaving here on Saturday morning for a couple week of vacation. Just need a change of scenery once in a while. I will be visiting some family and spending time with some special friends.
I do know that when I visit my aunt in the western part of the state I will have the assigned task of making some muscadine grape jelly. Then the following week when I visit some other friends, there is no telling what kinda projects we will undertake. I am really looking forward to this road trip. Then back home for about a week and I have surgery on my right elbow to fix the tendinitis that started 2 years ago when I got hurt at work. Not sure yet how long the recovery will be for that, but I have all winter. Just as long as I got Internet and can type with one hand, I will survive. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
