A BEAUTIFUL DAY
We had an absolutely gorgeous day with the temperature starting at 48 degrees and warming up to 76 degrees this afternoon. It is definitely a sign that fall is in the air.
We did some tootling as I call it since it was a beautiful day. We left with no real destination in mind just going to wherever. As we cut across the countryside, it reminded you some of a roller coaster going uphill and down with the curves thrown in. Of course this is two lane highways because you can drive a little slower and enjoy the countryside. Some area look like it is almost harvest time with the corn getting brown. Some have already made theirs into silage because it wasn't going to be good for anything else. I can remember when my dad did that. Growing up on the farm gave you a lot of enjoyment that you don't get in the city or at least I think so. You could set on the front porch without worrying about the neighbors being that close to you. I would love to live back in the country for that reason.
We have talked about making the drive to see the fields of sunflowers in bloom. They should be awesome looking now with all of the color. We may just do that tomorrow, but we will wait and see what tomorrow brings. I never want to plan my days to far ahead as they never go like you plan. We like making a decision on the fly to do whatever.
I just want a couple more nice days like today. They say that rain is back in for Tuesday of next week. Just what we need more of right at the moment.
They had lines waiting to check out at the mall this afternoon when I was there. I did some rearranging and looking to see what I was going to do next. I need to do some more embroidery work and get a package ready for shipping on Tuesday. It was a good day at my etsy shop.
You all have a wonderful day and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
