Well, fall is officially here in Central Illinois. The air is crisp, the sun while bright has lost it's strength. We are busy stacking wood for the winter season-a little too long for my liking, but they seem to go by quicker with each passing year. The good news is I have 80% of my Christmas shopping already done and the plane tickets are bought for our trip to see our son and granddaughter in Hawaii in February. Life is good.
