Wow, I can really feel it now. The air is so crisp and bright and I haven't had to turn on the A/C for days. I even had the fireplace on last Sunday morning. Glad I got all my windows and screens all washed. Except for putting away all the yard art, I am ready for Winter. My sweetie brought me my first token of the new season. Horse chestnuts!
Decorating with my school buses.
We had our first home game opener on Saturday. The U of M Griz played Northern Alabama under the lights. And I am happy to say we won. Gorgeous night with a fly over by my favorite plane, Miss Montana. Fun to meet and greet our seat mates and get my first soft pretzel of the year.
Now that we are in September I can now open the bag of Autumn Mix. I have held myself back for weeks....lol
Road trip!! We had always said that when I retired we would go back to Glacier Park in the fall. And we did! It was wonderful and tho a bit rainy, we had such a great time. I had forgotten just how lovely the park is. When you are standing there below those mountains it is humbling. We took a Red Bus tour, and left the driving up the Going to the Sun Road to Jammer Karl. He took good care of us, gave us a lot of great info and told our group some great jokes. On our tour we had folks from Alabama, Wyoming, Indiana, New York, Canada and we were referred to as the Locals...lol And we made it to and from Lake MacDonald Lodge, without plummeting to our deaths. That's a plus. On one of our stops we got to see a Black Bear scurrying up the hillside. What a thrill! ( A Jammer is the name given to the buses and the drivers, due to "jamming the gears") Though now of course, the engines are brand new and the rigs refurbished. Such an incredible visit. It brought back so many great memories from our early days together when we lived in Kalispell. 💕
So, now I get to do some relaxing and puttering about. We are planning another short trip to see the fall color but of course that depends on the weather. Always, Kit
