New Neighbors

Fall is definitely here! We had our first frost last night. I'm loving the crisp air, wearing sweaters and seeing the colors around our house.

Another fall change is that we have new neighbors in the lot next to ours. They moved in about two weeks ago. So far, they seem to be very quiet and polite, although they are a bit nosy and keep watch on all our comings and goings.They're snowbirds, just in for the cold time of year, so they're getting settled in for the winter. We haven't talked much, but we have discovered that their favorite hobby is Meditation.

Not the eastern kind of meditation, this variety of is distinctly Midwestern.

Here they are, our new neighbors, the snowbirds! Or perhaps that should be snowcows?

By the way, did you know that cows mooing one lot over can sound an awful lot like a cell phone on vibrate? I learned that after moving down here this spring. I must have had ten false alarms a day until I learned to tell the difference!

Strange, but true.

My girls LOVED this post. They love cows (probably because there is a pasture full by grandma & grandpa's home -- and grandpa does a lot of "cow watching" with them). Anyway, they looked at the pictures and yelled and mooed at the computer quite a while and even decided they were "pretty"! (That's the ultimate compliment from them.) =)
