Last quarter of the year. It’s starting out *hot*, too! Phew. Because of where we live, it actually gets cooler overnight, but heats up a lot during the day this time of year. With the humidity, it gets foggy. Here was a shot from my ride after breakfast yesterday. This was probably around 9 am (I start work late on Wednesdays 😳 )
When I rode to breakfast, the mist was collecting on my helmet and dripping off. It was almost like rain.
Seems like September starts hot around here – or at least it has for the last few years.
It’s a super busy month around here. There are multiple birthdays, anniversaries and we have 2 sets of company coming to stay with us this month.
Here is my niece who just turned 16 (eek!)
How time flies! She is going to be driving…
We finally have everything with the house settled up. We just refinanced to a regular mortgage. We purchased Radiance Manor with a private mortgage and with the sale of the old house done, we were then able to go the conventional route to refinance. Now all Ts are crossed and we are like normal people. Or whatever passes for normal around here.
So, I have a gift to myself arriving tomorrow. I finally – after talking about it for a couple years – ordered a DSLR camera. It’s been on my wish list for so long and it was time. No vacation this year, so gotta treat myself somehow, right? It’s a Rebel T5.
I ended up ordering a kit that included the zoom lens I wanted and a wide angle/macro lens. I will try not to overwhelm you with pictures on the blog, but then again, I just might anyway 😀
I realize that I have been remiss in the Pixie love on the blog. Here is a photo I meant to post before, but forgot. This was taken while the driveway was being done.
Pixie was able to lay on the piano far away and still give a side eye to the workers through the window in the kitchen door.
I am close to my 2000 mile biking goal. I am at 1769. That means only about 230 to go. I would normally say I would have it before the end of the month, but with 2 sets of company and none of them riders, I won’t be on the bike as much, but barring injury I won’t have a problem meeting that goal.
Here’s to a busy month!
