I am always wondering if people think I'm nuts when I stop to take some of the photos I do. As I was headed on to the interstate off the Recreation Road one trip I saw this lovely yellow faces sticking up through the cattle guard (Montana has open range so you will find cattle guards off almost all secondary roads onto the interstate). I have to admit, the hardest part was balancing on the cattle guard to get the shots.
I also realize I've not done much posting about "life stuff" lately either. While things are rather chugging along it has been busy. Fall always is. By the time you read this post my Mom should be safely back home in Phoenix and assessing the damage to her place from all of the monsoon storms (with 70 mph winds) that they have had. The first hit back in August so she has been rather antsy to get back. I understand. This is the earliest she has gone home and latest she has arrived so our visit this year was short to begin with and shortened even more by my week at Nia training and a week in New Mexico. The house is very quiet and the dogs and I already miss her.
Things at work are rockin' and rollin'. I am finally in a mode where I am allowed to work 2 days a week from home and did my first day this week. I absolutely love it and find I accomplish a great deal more there where it is quiet and there are no interruptions. There are some technical issues still to deal with (a headset for the computer meetings is one) but I hope to overcome those. Truly what a blessing. It also allows me to whip out front in the morning on my break and do a bit of training with the poodles as well as get them out for a long walk during lunch. We ALL need that and I am hoping that will get my fat buns moving again. Meanwhile we also had a reorganization of our department which is always unsettling. Not sure how things will all settle out but so far I am still with my 2 favorite bosses of all time although we are now under IT (I decided that was some evil twist of life that that happened).
My new travel trailer adventure is in pause mode while we wait for it to hit the assembly line the end of October. The plans are finalized and I am super excited. It will be along winter waiting to be able to use it though so have decided that time will be used to outfit it. Having been an RV owner for many years I am going to do my best to use the "less is more" methodology for it. I am excited that this will be a long term trailer for me as well. All aluminum (yay - no rotting like the Winnie) and it is also a toyhauler which will allow me not only to outfit it to suit me but I can take the kayaks too! YAY!
I think that pretty much shoots if for the life updates. Can I just say HOORAH for the cooler weather tho! :)
