October Days..

 Oh, I saw these mountain goats on a hike near where we live. It was epic.

Well here we are in the middle of October. Winter has arrived in our part of the country (though some claim it fall still). It has snowed and continues to drop temperature so call it what you wish. We have been getting our supply of wood up (we have a wood stove as our heat) and getting our outside stuff taken care of for winter. Chance has been busy moving cattle from one place to the next and getting ready to ship calves off in the next couple of weeks. October has been a bit slower for me work wise (it comes and goes with tourists) so I have been re-organizing my house, making salsa (which I then freeze), and getting all the Christmas gifts bought. Yes, I am an overachiever when it comes to holiday shopping simply because I don't want to be stressed out once December is upon us. 

We managed to do a quick family photo shoot while the leaves were golden and still on the trees. I now need to figure out Christmas cards, these days there are too many options for cards! It is an honest dilemma each year as to what in the world I am going to do. I love the cute and popular photo cards, but I also love the beautiful mass produced cards. Have you seen Leanin' Tree's cards?! They thought it would be fun to send me a catalog of their wonderful Christmas cards, so my decision is now made more difficult. 
I turned a year older this month. I don't feel much different ; ) but I do wonder what all I have done with my life thus far. It is a good time of reflection on myself and the past wrapping into the present. 
Well that about wraps it up for now. Thanks for reading!
