    Beautiful walk in nature today.  It is going to be an epic "leaf peeping" season.

    Cleaned attic and garage last night and this morning.  Fall cleaning is just as much fun as Spring cleaning.  Heading over to donate tonight.

    A good habit starting to form with my son remebering to turn his computer off consistently without being remided.

    Saw the largest deer/buck during my walk on Saturday morning while walking my dog.  Neither of us knew what to do as it sprinted past us in the woods.  Probably 100 yards from my house.  We do not live in a rural part of Charlotte either.  Crazy!

    My family and I are enjoying the recent fall weather.  We've eaten all our dinner meals outside this week.  No electonics and used our Goal Zero lantern for light.
