Happy Labor Day! Yes, it has been a week or so since I put anything on the blog. School has been super busy and I've been working hard to get it in order. We also haven't been able to get outside much lately. Greg tore his calf muscle about 2 weeks ago. He had to visit the Urgent Care facility and has been on crutches since. The doctor told him it would take about 8-9 weeks to heal. Needless to say, he hasn't been able to do any walking and hasn't gotten out much except to go to work. Last week he did start a new job, still with the Bureau of Land Management, as a Contact Representative in the Public Information Center. He is back in uniform and dealing with visitors again.
Today our apartment building had a cookout for the holiday. There was a yummy spread of bratwursts, hot dogs, hamburgers, and all the sides. We thoroughly enjoyed being outside in the gorgeous weather eating all that good food. It has been perfect fall weather here for the last few weeks. I could actually see my breath as I walked to school on a couple of mornings. It gets up into the mid 50s to low 60s by midday. Some of the leaves on the trees have begun to turn a golden yellow. Gorgeous!
