transition...

It's that time of year.  Making the transition into the winter season.  Just moved the ice box out to the front porch tonight - no more ice purchases for 4 months.  The chilly overnight temperatures will keep the food fresh.  Reckon I will extract the swamp cooler tomorrow.

Another batch of solar bread went into the oven this morning.  Just as I plopped 'em in, another chili cookoff crew came in for a visit and tour.  My friends Curtis and Melissa came out for their second visit (they were here last year on November 5th) and brought some Odessites - my new best friends Carl and Melinda.  The only thing better than getting visitors out here is getting return visitors.  They were a bit disappointed that Benita wasn't here this trip, but Mr. Floppy came in for a snack and a photo op. 

Late this afternoon, Benita appeared on the horizon and decided to make an appearance - a bit too late for the visitors.  Nice to see the old girl again.  Pretty windy today so she dined in the great hall that will be the greenhouse courtyard.  67,78,40.0,W

How long until Benita heads off for the Winter?
