Catching Up

I can’t believe its been soon long since I wrote in my blog. We really haven’t been doing much.

Oct 16th we went with Arlene & Gary to another Colgate game at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. It was about a two hour drive. It was nice that day but cold. Colgate won.

Oct 17th we went up to Carthage to see Lois. We had a nice visit then went out to dinner and had a nice drive around the area. Here are some pictures of the windmills in Lowville.



They have quite a few up there.

On the 20th Jerry’s brother Mac had an accident while working and did quite a bit of damage on his knee. It bent backwards and went out of socket but luckily when he got to the hospital they got it back in socket. But he had to have surgery because blood clots were forming in his leg. They left the wounds open and let them drain. He had two of them stitched up on Friday and the rest will be worked on Monday. We went to visit a couple of time. He is in pretty good spirits.

Oct 23rd we went to a 50th wedding anniversary for Ann and Charlie. All of our friends were there and had a good time.

Oct 24th Jerry worked around the house and in the afternoon we went for a ride south. Every fall we like to go south along the Schoharie River to all the vegetable stands. We like to stop at the Carrot Barn in Middleburgh. We got some cider doughnuts and coffee. I remember when all the kids were home when they were small we would buy a fifty pound bag of carrots here for about $6.00. Then after the kids got home from school they peeled them and when I got home from work I would freeze them.



Then we went to the Apple Barn in Schoharie.


The leaves were pretty down that way. Up north here they are pretty much gone.




The camera doesn’t do a good job of showing all the colors.

This week we haven’t done much except work. Jerry is still busy on the farm house. Today Jerry is helping Jeff burn some sumac on his land.

If has been on the cold side most of the week. I wouldn’t be surprised that it snowed pretty soon.

Last Rose Of Summer


Well, I pick the last of my roses for this year. Don’t they look pretty. Today I was cleaning out my flower garden. I decided to pick these before the frost got them.

I still don’t feel tip-top but better than last week. I have been working around yard getting things put away for winter. I still  have more flower gardens to do.

Jerry has been busy working on his niece’s farm house. Wednesday we went out to dinner with Bvy, John,  Arlene and Gary. We went up to the East End Steak House in Little Falls. It was Bvy birthday on the 5th and Jerry’s birthday on the 7th. Arlene and Gary’s anniversary on the 9th. So we all were celebrating. Although Jerry said he doesn’t celebrate his birthday anymore because who wants to celebrate getting older. He was only 71 so he has a long way to go. LOL.

Friday we went out with Terry and Jackie to Lombardo’s for fish.

This weekend we didn’t do anything. Jerry worked and I worked around house.

Not Feeling Well

This past week I haven’t been feeling well. I got up Tuesday morning feeling faint. I felt like the room was spinning. I couldn’t do nothing without feeling like I was spinning so I went back to bed. I slept most of the day. Wednesday I felt a little better. I did go get my hair cut. That was about all I did all day. Thursday, I felt pretty good but a little weak. Friday morning I got up and felt a little dizzy again so I decided to go to the doctors. My doctor didn’t have any opening so they said to go to urgent care. The closest one is in Amsterdam. The doctor said that I had fluid on the ear so he gave me prescription for some amoxicillin. I still have times when I get a little dizzy. Saturday we were supposed to go to the Colgate game with Arlene and Gary. I stayed home because I didn’t feel that great, Jerry went. I knew that if I went out in the colder weather all afternoon I would get worse.

Yesterday I felt pretty good so we went for ride up north to see the leaves. We had dinner out and then came home.


We crossed the lower part of Lake Champlain at Ticonderoga into Vermont by ferry.


Small town of Brandon, VT.


Some of the country side. I took through window so I have a reflection.


The pretty colors of the leaves didn’t come out in picture.
