Some of the things we accomplished included: Finished cleaning out the flower beds. Removed one flower bed completely and sowed grass seed. Wendell removed two old evergreens and seeded those spots. Got the garden shed re-roofed. Painted the propane tank. Got some landscaping done on the west side of the house. Got my work room 'stuff' moved from the garage upstairs to the house basement. Normal fall yard work including dumping all those now-frozen outdoor flower pots. And we threw in some fun times, too.
I was so proud of the work that Corey Mauder and his crew did on the west side of the house. Wow! Very well pleased and I'd recommend his company to anyone in our area who needs some help. We needed something to mask the foundation there and prevent erosion, and when this grows I think it will do the job of moving the eye from the blank wall to the beautiful plants. Got arborvitae, hydrangea, ornamental grasses, boxwood, rose bush and some small perennials. Here's what it looks like ...
Last week we were driving out our road and about half way down the road saw this beautiful immature eagle, and his brother or sister who flew into a nearby tree when we drove up, but this one stayed and worked on his lunch. Mom and Dad hovered overhead. I turned off the ignition and we just sat and watched for some time. So glad to see that an eagle pair has raised at least two 'kids' nearby -- probably along the river -- this summer!

Also we've had a national election and that's been exciting, too. I'm curious to see how it will all work out, but I know it will. We have a strong country. I was reassured to see the red and blue county-by-county U.S. map following the election. Check it out online if you're interested.
And with that I'll call it a day. May God continue to bless y'all. And may God bless America!
