Mae, Lucy, Harry and Max….
Mae was so excited to see snow this week that I couldn’t get a decent picture….beside herself! Lucy….showing off her new winter coat. And the little Harry with his big brother Max. Saturday dog love!
October was a busy month! We bought a new car. My husband’s ’04 WRX had over 370,000 miles on it and had to be put out to pasture. It was on it’s second engine, but everything else was worn out! Within the next year, he will reach the point of having logged a million miles in Subarus! LOVE them!

I also went to Las Vegas for a weekend with my daughter to celebrate her 21st birthday. She turned 21 back in September. We have been through a lot together, especially over the last decade. She is a type 1 diabetic; life is not always easy. It’s a very challenging disease to live with 24/7. So, we thought it was a great occasion to get a little over the top and celebrate her birthday!
I know you’ve been missing Mae. Come on, of course you have! She, as usual, has been having quite the life…running, hiking, swimming. But last month she was stung by hornets three different times! NOT fun. The last time, we had been out hiking on the mountain and about half an hour after we got home I looked at her and her entire face was swelling! Luckily a benadryl tablet brought it under control. But she hid in the closet for the next hour!

I’ve been a bit more careful about avoiding places bees might be, but it’s not easy out in the woods.

In case you missed it, I finally found a great shoe! I am just so happy that I tried these because they are exactly what I’ve been hoping to find. They are the Altra Lone Peak 3.0 mid height, neoprene/polartec trail runner. My goodness, that’s a mouthful!
Oh. my . GAWD!! I just took the new Altras for a test run….it’s a perfect match!! They are the Altra Lone Peak 3.0 Mid height, neoprene/polartec trail shoe. They look like this:
We’ve had some GORGEOUS fall weather up to this last weekend, then we got slammed with lots of rain. I think we had a couple of inches on Saturday! But precipitation is good….that rain will soon be snow!
