Fall Days

I have had an eventful weekend. I helped my son make a solar oven it is beautiful. He proceeded to make a few cookies in our oven and he assumed that it would take three times longer to cook one cookie in his solar oven. Well, it was about 88 degrees and an hour later the cookie was just melted batter.

He had a better go at cutting out a jack-o-lantern. I was very proud of his cutting skills. We watched horror films and went for a long bike ride too. What a great day.

Moving on.

It is fall in Austin and it is beautiful. We've got the Halloween decorations up and are cheering for the Texans.
After year we are finalizing plans for Thanksgiving and holidays without my sister. I am moving slowly through the grieving process; it is getting better with a little help. I have made changes that are helping me with my entire life.
I have started a large pot garden. We have peppers, spinach and I planted some pomegranate seeds. I have a huge plot of land I need to clean up so we can put in a skate board ramp...yea I know Crazy. But awesome.
