Saturday, Sept. 28th. I'm sitting here, and I'm waiting for snow. Snow in September. I once had snow in June and it isn't unheard of to have snow on Halloween. But I must say this is a first for me. Already we are seeing pics from Great Falls and Bozeman with the white stuff on patios and trees. Part of me wants to be part of the excitement, heck David Muir mentioned our state on the news. But I would really rather have it bypass me. I worry for my trees. P.S. As I sit here on Sunday morning, it is softly snowing. I can enjoy it since I know it won't last. And I have a close eye on my trees and a hose at the ready! ❄❄❄

A week ago, we had one of those incredible perfect days for a drive. In order to take the Cobra out, it must be about 72°, no rain and sunshine. We headed up the Blackfoot. A lovely 2 lane along the river. God it was lovely. I can't help but grin the whole time and then my face hurts the rest of the So worth it!

I spent last week putting my gardens to bed for the season.  I did pretty good and got all the major pieces inside my shop. All my throws and outdoor pillows are washed and stored. When all this snow melts and better weather returns, I will finish up. With this cold, my flowers will be done and they need to be composted.

I am pretty much a happy hermit since I retired, but I actually ventured out to two lunches last week. Two! It was lovely. One with my SIL and a good friend and then a meet up with an old friend and her best friend. Both were fun, with lots of laughs and good food.

It is now Monday, and the snow is gone and the sun is shining. Only winter for a day. I sit and wait for a delivery. We ordered a new shower to install ourselves. Are we crazy or what!? My husband is very handy and with me as his gopher we should be able to do this with minimal damage to our marriage. Wish us luck! Always, Kit

We humans are never satisfied. I pray for cold, you for warmth- I think we are all in for very rude awakenings as our climate and seasons change. Buckle up!

Winter for a day in September is doable. I hope it doesn't return for a good long stretch. It sounds like you've prepared well with putting the garden to bed. Good luck with the shower install. We did ours a couple of years ago and I just stayed out of the way.

Yes, you two are crazy. I guess we did get ours in but it took a week longer than I thought, I ended up drenched (my husband pulled a trick on me, I think) and although it is nice to have, company enjoys it more than me. I love my baths. Good luck. Diane

Kit - as you will see in my next post, we only got a dusting of snow, but the below freezing temps have really done a number on my flowers! Oh well, I would rather that than a bunch of broken tree limbs. It looks like the weather is going to be OK for Homecoming Saturday - looking forward to the parade and the game! "Minimal damage to my marriage" - hahahahaha! I am sure you will 'weather' a shower installation with no issues!

My hubby and I would both like to see the Cobra! Sounds like a fun way to go for a drive! The snow looks pretty but I'm glad it didn't last long. Good luck with the hubby and I both want an update on that too! heehehee!

Best wishes on the shower installation project. I like the photo of the scene with your two blue chairs, that looks like a great spot to sit and relax.

Oct. 7 - How did the shower installation go, Kit? Glad you had winter for only one day (so far.) THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR VISIT AND COMMENT. Love when you stop by Writing Straight from the Heart. Susan

October 8 - Sounds like we have even more snow coming. Better get ready, Kit. Diane
