Fall. The season that finds me reflecting, the most. About everything, but mostly about the year that is rapidly coming to a close. A year, most people in this world would prefer not to repeat. It hasn't been all bad for us, altho different for sure. Sadly this year continues to be SO very hard on way too many.
On a brighter note, now that it is Fall I can take me, myself and my thoughts back out to the woods!! Along with Tanky, and sometimes Brad and/or the grand dogs. I walk our woods as many days as possible throughout our three ever changing seasons, but rarely during Summer. Too hot and too buggy. Feels sooo good to back among nature! It is where I am happiest. I clear my head and fuel my soul. It is my church.
He never goes too far ahead or strays, such a great dog!

Our pine woods are on the opposite end of our property. I ended up carrying Leo back to the barn, he was panting. It was a warmer then usual muggy walk, right before rain. Leo was happy to hitch a ride back. Silly cat.
Early Fall our outdoor arena use came to an abrupt halt. We had non-stop rain for close to a week, and then outdoor projects consumed our free time. The last few week/ends were spent landscaping, adding to our driveway and cutting/stacking wood. Getting close to being done with outdoor projects for the year. Then, hopefully we can get back to enjoying the outdoor arena before the rain turns into the S word!
