She still feels as though she does not quite have a handle on this working and trying to maintain her house! She was running a little late the other day and it was raining, which would have made her hair go frizzy because she has to stand there and hold the nozzle in order to fill her tank, so she decided she would gas up her truck on her way home from work.... except that she didn't remember to do that until she was several miles past the last open gas station. *Sigh*. The warning light came on in her truck when she was about a mile from home. She can drive roughly another 20 km once the warning light is on.
She mentioned it to the Rancher when she got home, and was prepared to leave a little earlier yesterday so she could fill up on her way to work. When she got out of the shower, she noticed that both the Rancher and her truck were missing! He had taken it to the little convenience store close to the ranch and put enough gas in it for her to get to town. How nice was that?!
She has taken several pictures of the river valley in it's autumnal splendor, but she hasn't had time to download them from her camera. Hopefully she'll get to that sometime this week. In the meantime, here's a picture she took the other day. She turned off the highway onto the gravel road that leads to her house, and was startled to see this burgundy-red bush. The picture doesn't quite have the same impact as the sight did in reality, but it's the best she has to offer today!
