Fall is my most favorite time of year for outside projects.  Great sleeping temperatures at night and great working temperatures during the day.  Then if your time permits you can take a ride in the country and see the beautiful colors as the trees prepare to drop their leaves.  This week we will be pulling out the dock in Big Lake.  A nice time for swimming!!  The float boat and Grand Lake Canoe are happily stored away.  If you are not someone that enjoys winter and ice fishing just remember, summer in Grand Lake Stream will come again in 2014.  

This past Friday Nolan and I made 4 gallons of fresh cider.  A neighbor offered us the grinder the cider press and apples!  How could a person go wrong?  Very delicious

Here are some of the upcoming activities this week.
