Catching Up

Happy October!!! I truly love October. And today was an exceptionally October-y kind of day. This morning I put away all my summer clothes and got out my winter clothes. And then, oh joy oh joy!, I went down to the barn to paint in my studio and what did I see? The farmer who farms the fields around our house are cutting the corn. YAY!!! That makes me so incredibly happy! Starting tomorrow morning, I get to resume my daily hikes through the fields with the dogs. I've been waiting months and months! A major bonus of the corn cutting are all the ears of corn left behind. Rose and Tucker LOVE corn.



This is Rosie guarding her ear of corn from Maggie and Willy, Anne's dogs. She loves Maggie and Willy, but is definitely not willing to share her corn!


Here's the field beside the barn after a quick run through by the whatever-the-machine is that cuts corn.
And, here is a truck load of corn being hauled away. I had my camera on major zoom here. This is about half a mile away.


I also saw a red-headed woodpecker out by the barn today. That was totally cool! I even had my camera with me, but wasn't quick enough to get him.
A New Studio update very soon!
