Almost every morning we have fog in our valley.
Yesterday the fog eventually lifted and it ended up being a nice day. I then decided to go out for a walk and take some photos .

This morning the fog was as” thick as pea soup” my mother would say. It is to be clearing and lifting later to a sunny fall day. I went to the front door to take some photos of the fog, its amazing how it just hangs there and makes the land look mysterious ! As I was taking the photos I had a little visit from a stray cat so I thought I would take his photo and make him a star ! I just looked out the window as I am posting this and the sun is shining its way through the thick dense fog and cloud , it looks like a head light shining through. I am hoping to get out today and take photos of what ever catches my eye. Until next time, Hope all of you have a great day !DSC_0011  DSC_0012

Today is a chilly cloudy dreary day, the skies look like it will be raining  at any time but yet holds off . I think I may put the wood stove on. I don't like it when its like this cause you never know whether you can go outside for a bit with out it  pouring on you. Maybe I will take the chance and attempt to take Miggy for a walk and hope we don't get drenched .  Hubby is at work,Miggy is sitting beside me chewing her toy as I am trying to find something here to talk about, I find it hard to just talk about nothing or as I put it ,  babble on !
I have laundry on the go, the cat is fast asleep on her scratch post  looking like she is about to fall off of it at any time like she always does, have the dinner meat thawing for tonight as I sit here thinking of something interesting to say . There are times I could ramble or babble on and on and other times I am completely blank and haven’t a clue as what to say, will anyone out there in blog land be interested in my nothings and my babbling or will they think I have lost it all together. That,  I already feel like some days, like when you walk into a room to get something, till you get there and think “what am I here for” or “what was it I needed”  I hate that cause it usually takes hours before I remember what heck it was!  Menopause! that's what it is and why I have a bad memory and go blank at times or forget things. That's my story and I”m stickin to it ! Why do they call it Menopause ?   it hasn't anything to do with men, or does it  ? lol. The Dr says I am pre or peri Menopause more like  “FULL  BLOWN” with all the symptoms, just ask hubby he’ll tell ya. Like the days I feel grumpy or sad or want to smack someone or am just  plain fed up, Menopause ! Isn’t  it wonderful ? NOT!!!! I am a bag of hormones changing all the time, it drives me nuts, or am I nuts? Well my family and friends already know that , I was that ages ago before the so called wonderful “change of life”. There are articles I have read about women welcoming Menopause and as they say”embrace it, the hell with that ! I guess those women aren't as far into it as I am cause if they were they wouldn’t be embracing it they would want to  scream , jump up and down pulling their hair out . What with the sweats the chills the moods the weight gain the bloating  the thinning of hair the ups and downs of it all I am surprised I haven't been committed, yet !  Hubby is very understanding yes but then stays well out of the way when the nasty’s hit, poor guy ! I don't blame him !   So as each day goes by I try to manage with it all and just laugh and joke about it cause if I don't who knows what mood I will be in then. Well so much for not knowing what to say here and for not babbling on , see once I start ya just never know what I will say !  As for all you women out there going through the “change of life”  It will be tuff at times but just remember this, oh what stories you could tell about it and that your not alone even though you may feel like you are  ! Till the next not knowing what to say babbling fit ! Have a great day !

Today hubby has gone down to the marina to get our boat out of the water so it can now be winterized. Mike the marina manager whom I call Skipper, will winterize it over the next week, then we will haul it back here and store it in the back.                             

The weather today is defiantly fall like  , cool and fresh.  The other night the moon was full and yellowy orange  a  Harvest moon it was . Yesterday was hot and humid,  the weather has been very up and down and I think it is confusing the trees, they don't seem to know what to do , some are still green, some have changed a little bit and some are fully changed but all are dropping their leaves regardless. Hubby and I will be going on a photo shoot of the colors very soon. We still have lots to do around the house to prepare for the colder weather, BRRRR ! don't want to think of it quite yet !                      

To all of you out there in blog land,  HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND !

This morning when I let Miggy out she dashed over to the birch tree were there was a squirrel in the bird feeder, cheeky thing, as soon as it saw her charging towards him he ran up the tree, well! Miggy got excited and I saw her jumping straight up to see it better in the tree and as usual I didn’t have my camera, so I went and got my camera in hopes that she would do it again, well she did and these are the shots I got.                                              click on photos


                                  This photo she is literally off the ground !

My Hubby loves to play the guitar , key board and organ , he is quite good. This organ was my fathers and he played it a lot  , he made  recordings of his music and the  proceeds went to the cancer society,  he also could play the piano and the accordion, he was very good also, our whole family is musically inclined , my mum had a organ as well and every weekend eve both of them would play , sort of a organ play off lol. So now hubby plays it and its wonderful to hear it again  and see him play !




I went for a little walk to see what I could find to take photos of, this is what I found.


pretty wild flowers.



seeds on the maple tree, we call them helicopters cause when they fall they spin around like the blades of a helicopter.

DSC_0005 She is my country scruff . We nick named her Miggy and she responds better to that then her name , I wonder if dogs prefer certain names, I guess they do Miggy can attest to that.

This morning was chilly but beautiful, the sunrise was so bright it was hard to capture it in its full glory, so I decided to take  photos of the sunrise shining its pale yellow/ orange color on objects as it kisses them hello and good morning   and to try to get some of it’s affect!DSC_0007 DSC_0008
