It's now been a year since John went out to Utah and tomorrow marks 1 year since he started his job. I can't believe it's been that long. I have a tendency to look at things in the perspective of deployments (we did 17 of those while John was in the Navy)...so some of you will understand when I say this: When John left, the Mule (the farm cart I bought John when he turned 60 years old) had a full tank of gas...today I checked and I have a whole year's worth of gas left in the tank...I let you think about that for a while. Yes, in 1 year, I've only used 1/2 tank of gas - that's using it every single week to take trash out to the bins, check on the water softener under the house, check on the orchard, run down to our neighbor's house, etc. I surely do hope I don't have to wait another year before I can empty the tank and ship the Mule to Utah....I would love to 'waste' the gas left in the tank and move sooner than later!
The weather has turned cooler here in the Ozarks. We've had a bit of rain in the last 10 days and a bit more expected this next week. And it's predicted the temps will rise a bit also this next week. But Autumn is definitely arrived! I had to turn the furnace on a couple of days already...but today I have the a/c going.
Well, enough rambling...I'm off to read for a while before it gets dark and I settle down with some hot chocolate and a movie.
Thanks for stopping by.
