Here are some more photos of our trip home last month. I sure do miss home, don't you mom.

Audrey took this picture of the nicely plowed field, grandpa does such a good job.
The men folk getting back from a wood cutting venture. Now grandma and grandpa will be nice and toasty for the winter. I love it. Tim did this with a horrible case of sciatica (sp)!!

A nice fat buck, I was standing about 2 car lengths from this guy. He just kept on eating from the oak trees. I was making noise to get him to look at me. Oh the life on land that can't be hunted.
The last of the crazy buffalo. You never know what you will find when you go home. I think these are stragglers from a heard that was in an accident. The truck tipped over with a bunch of these buggers in route to their new home. All were rescued but 3 or 4, I assume these are 2 of them. They are very shaggy and skinny.

Oatmeal Bars

These were very delicious, and so simple to make! The perfect pairing for a good cup of coffee. Oatmeal Fruit Bars
1c. a.p. flour
1c. quick oats
2/3 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 c. butter
1 c. jam

In large bowl mix flour, oats, sugar, and soda together. Cut in butter to resemble course crumbs. Press mixture into a 8x8 lightly greased baking dish, reserve 1 cup. Spread with your choice of jam, I used pomegranate-raspberry. Sprinkle the remaining mixture over the top and press lightly. Bake at 350 for 30 mins or until top is golden. Allow to cool this will allow it to firm up, cut and serve.

Fall decor

Here is my dining room now... Much more calm. My thrifted quail 2.00 ea, candle sticks 3.00 for both.

My Pier One pumpkin... I love the color.
