This & That Weekend


Our weekend was filled with a bit of this and that as Papa and I puttered ! The weather was wonderful , sunny with cool breezes .  

                                                            It was cool enough to enjoy the chiminea !

Papa made a pole stand and mounted my feeder on it for me . He made this feeder years ago and I was just having  it sit on a big stump for the longest time it is a heavy sturdy feeder and heavier when it is full ! . The funny thing is Papa is 6`1 and I 4`9 and he forgets it is me that  fills it most of the time so he had to put the pole a lot farther down in the ground lol so I could reach to fill the feeder lol .

Not to many grass cuttings left in the season now , soon it will mostly be all leaves , then Papa can use his leave blower and mulch them !

The trees over the valley are ever so slightly beginning to change as we can see just a hint of colour in them whilst others have changed more in other areas of the valley  the sun set shows it all better !

It was a lovely weekend  weather wise and puttering wise to spend it out side in the fresh air ,I find all the fresh air really conk’s us out though lol ! From sunset to moon rises . To all you moon photo  lovers the Harvest moon is tonight and tomorrow night  so get out there and snap a few shots I will be if it isn’t to cloudy ! This is last nights moon as the sun was setting in the west the moon rose in the east !

                              I like photographing the moon with trees in the photos better, gives the photos more contrast !

This morning is lovely , dewy , cool fresh air , sun shining , birdies chirping Crows and Blue jays squawking and the Starlings are chatting up a storm as they feast on the ground  and others sit up in the trees , crickets chirping , Northern Flickers making a ruckus  and other birdies singing away , the temps dropped last night and this morning at 7am it was only 10°C or 50°F   . It is now 7:45 and the school bus should be passing any minuet . I have a few appointments to go to for check ups and then the rest of the day is mine to enjoy ! I am feeling better , thanks to all of  you for your kind words of concern !

                                                         Until next time my friends , enjoy your day !

I am just catching up on some blog reading and was so sorry to read of Papa's Grandma's passing and also of your ear infection. I do hope with the funeral now been and gone, that the happy memories will now come in waves to cheer your thoughts. I also hope that your ear infection will soon pass, nothing worse! Take care xx

I'm noticing the cooler temps in the mornings more than anything else when I first set out. It does warm up, but the first while out and about, you wonder if you should add a layer.

Leah said...

Great pictures - fall is coming ahhh.... Suppose I should change out my flags here soon too.... when out for a drive this past weekend I saw a hint of the trees changing and a few that have changed (early birds)

Michelle said...

Love the pictures. Our temps are changing and I am so ready for fall!

It was a beautiful weekend here as well and today and the next few are going to be very nice. The full moon is very bright. We've heard coyotes howling the past 2 nights right across the road! Creepy. :) Have a nice week.
