So let's see -- what's been happening? Well, I've spent most of this month recovering from yet more dental surgery. My dentist can't seem to figure out what's causing all these infections, but he says the tendency is probably genetic and there might not be much I can do about it. Brushing and flossing and rinsing like mad doesn't seem to have any effect on the problem. I am being sabotaged by my ancestry.
And because of the dental adventure, we haven't done much of interest during the past few weeks. But I'm off the pain medication and the antibiotics now, and ready for some action. And the weather has improved -- seems like we had rain almost everyday in September, but October has been really pretty nice. The leaves are changing color, the high temperatures are very mild, and the nights are brisk. A very acceptable autumn so far, even though it's not my favorite time of year.
We still hope to get over to Shenandoah for a day or two before the really cold temps set in. Michael loves the mountains and the forest -- trees and grass and all those things that make me sneeze and cough. Not that I don't like the outdoors. I do. I could sit and watch it through my window all day long!
