I can't wait to move to Florida and have the pool to work out in everyday. I'll do that and my exercise bike and I should start getting into better shape.

WAY TO GO !!

Then Ella runs and it keeps her from mouse hunting. So Angel is my guard dog against Ella bringing me another dead mouse.

In Florida I won't have Angel to run interference so I'll be getting dead geccos from Ella instead. UGH!


Maybe she won't like to chase geccos.
I used to pick up the ones our cats brought with my hand in a plastic bag like picking up a dog mess, turn it inside out over the mousey body, tie it off and put it in the trash.

So we made them today. Yum Yum Yum!!!

YUM !! Good plan !!

The heat went on for the first time last night....and it's only the first week of October.

They're saying that we can expect our first snow some time around Halloween this year. That's early! Then they're saying that it's going to be a rough winter with lots of storms and lots of snow.

It figures that my last winter in the house has to be a rough one. We were hoping it would be like last winter which only snowed about two inches twice.....easy! But it's not to be this year.

I just joined Angie's List and looked up snow removal. I found two good companies. I'll have to call and get myself on the list of regular clients to plow.

We have no more truck with a plow....too many mechanical problems so we traded it in for a four wheel drive tracker. It will get us up the hill in the winter as long as it's plowed or less than 2 inches are on the ground.

I have no Ray, no kids, no committment to stay here for Thanksgiving dinner. So this year I would love to go to Ian and Sukie's for dinner....but they are taking this year off and not doing turkey day dinner.

We will either have to cook at home or invite ourselves to someone else's house. Casey is going to be with Brittany at her parents house. My brother stays on his boat. We can't run down to Florida since we're going in December. I have my cousins in Binghamton, NY, NYC and Long Island that I can go crash their dinners. But I'm thinking that maybe we'll stay home and cook so that I can have leftovers.

Aw, bummer. I was hoping they were going to be inviting people again because Tyler's at his dad's this year that day. I would have dragged my mom along again. She would have been totally willing though, since she loved everybody there!

Don't put too much belief on the forecast. Last fall it was forecasted to be the hardest winter in recent history for our area and it ended up to be the mildest in years with almost no snow and only 1 or 2 snow days for school kids.

But no matter how the winter goes, at least you know it's your last time dealing with the snow!

I know....I'm sad too. They decided to take a year off and this one is it and I know we would have gone this year too. Oh well. I guess we'll just cook.
