EEEK! Where is Summer??

Egads! Is summer really almost over? Are the mornings really that crisp and chilly? Is my basement freezing all of a sudden? It is September 11 and I have just turned on my space heater in my office. My arms and legs are a bit chilled as the sun has moved on past my windows and shade has creeped in. I'm totally not ready to start wearing layers down here in my basement office. I'm in denial. I don't want summer to end. So, the reason for this post is to say that this is the first time I've turned on the space heater while it's still summer.

Farm Dreams

One day, we'll have our farm. I don't know how I stumbled upon it, but I found a really neat website called Rural Living Today ( and it looks to be very good reading. Hubby and I want to move sometime after he graduates but we don't want to jump in blindly to farming, even if it's just a mini farm or mini ranch. We aren't getting any younger and our dream of owning land for growing things and having livestock keep seeming to get further and further away. Why is that always the case??
