A Quiet Sunday


Hello everyone  !

Papa and I have been puttering as we do most Sundays . Papa and I gathered around the fire pit earlier this morning burning some piece's of tree that had fallen off from the winds we had a while ago and Papa had lots of wood scraps from his wood shop  to get rid of .

Then Papa cut the grass . His tractor is in for repairs so he borrowed his dad’s . I love the smell of wood smoke and fresh cut grass !

The weather today has been sunny with cloudy periods and cool breezes . A perfect day to putter outside  !

About 2pm not long ago from writing this post … darker clouds rolled in but nothing came of them so we continue to putter  for the rest of the day !

                                              Until next time , Hope your having a good Sunday !

I like your woodpeckers, we don't have any near our house. Growing up in Wisconsin there were a lot of woodpeckers and flickers in our neighborhood.

We had a quiet Sunday as well and Grenville prepared a treat for dessert, which was wonderful. The woodpeckers are a colorful pair. There have been several blue jay young-uns around our feeders.
