After I posted last night, Eli got violently ill. I stayed up with him until 1:30 a.m., when he finally fell asleep, exhausted. When he cuddled up with his teddy bear, I couldn't resist getting a picture . . .
The temperatures are steadily dropping again, and when my sister-in-law asked me to come down and take pictures of some of her dogs, I almost froze my franny off. As I was heading back home, I happened to spot this orange and yellow twine jumbled up in a mass, right outside the fence, where they feed hay to the cows.
It was a bright spot of color in an otherwise gloomy landscape. (If you look closely, you can even see a few cows in the background.)
The rest of my day was spent organizing, sorting and purging memorabilia. WHAT a monumental task! I, for one, will be glad when I've got it all filed and put away. And now that I've got a system, it SHOULD be easier for me to find what I'm looking for, when I need it. Or at least, that's the plan.
