The days of summer are slipping away....the onset of autumn is definitely in the air! And yes...I am fully engaged into pumpkin everything, wearing orange striped shirts, and I treated myself to these beautiful sunflowers today at Costco - only $8 bucks, you just can't go wrong ;) Don't you just love them?!
Although I am bummed by the shortening of the days, the falling leaves and turning colors make up for the loss of daylight! John is almost done chopping corn silage, and will be harvesting high-moisture corn next week - this is an early season but the weather has been great - so we will take it!!
It was a busy day...I was 'on press' today at Anderberg with a card run - reprinting sold out and low inventory cards and Christmas Cards, and also my brand new piece CARDINAL VISITORS! (Check back tomorrow for the official unveil!!) Things ran well today, despite what is a "gang run" - which means you are printing a lot of different images with different color pallets and there are usually some sacrifices on color for some of the images. All in all, it was a great press run, and we will have these cards scored, cut, and packaged and ready for World Dairy Expo in just 3 short weeks!
Speaking of World Dairy Expo - we hope to see you there.....where? Madison, WI, of course, October 2-6. Just a heads up...we will not have two booth locations this year, we have relinquished our spot in the Exhibition Hall, but you can still find us in the West Lobby Entrance of the Coliseum....we can't wait to see you soon!! For all of you who know and love Laura...just a heads up, she will not be there this year - she will be home tending to her new baby girl, Kirsten, yeah! We are so happy for her :) But don't worry, the rest of the team will be there, we have not had babies lately!!
So back to fall...does anyone out there like football? Hey, how about those Vikings!! Whoot whoot! Hey, how about those GSL Panthers! Zach is our last kiddo, a Junior at Glencoe Silver Lake, and as much as he loves Pre-Calc, he loves Football even more ;) Take a look at their first game (which they won!!) and look at these 4 Oreo Cookie Salad recipes at the first team meal of the season...each mom put her own flare into the recipe, how cool is that!!
