It Was A Nice Weekend

 

BOOHOO !!  we didn't get to see the Harvest Blood Moon last night as the thick clouds rolled in . Oh well . I saw photos of it over the internet  and from the weather channel  it was beautiful .

Any who , I cant believe it was the last weekend  of September already . Papa and I had lovely weather and were out side all weekend . Saturday Papa was in his work shop with the doors wide open cleaning it up and organizing it and I puttered about .  Papa had lots of extra bits and pieces of wood to be burned so we had a camp fire going .

The trees leaves are changing some are already changed and naked whilst others are half and half .

Over the weekend we had a few private small aircraft fly over . There are a lot of these small aircraft clubs in this area, some fly newer ones and others fly the vintage  aircraft .

Sunday Papa and I were busy re  building  our wood sheds  for our wood piles . Papa strengthened the frames and put sheet metal he gets from work on the sides and for a roof to keep the wood dry   later he will tarp the front so it is easy to get to .

This is one of  the wood sheds behind my potting shed , Papa has one behind is tool and  tractor  shed to and we have two opposite them in front of the hedges with the walkway in between  ! We still have some tidying up and lots of log splitting to do  but it will get done before the next season of W ..  I wont say it nope not yet  lol !!!

Some of the wood back here we had to move to build these and I got some to start the Chiminea and get it going for the day to enjoy the smell and sound of it crackling  . Papa and I have a standing joke between us cause I am a burn it type of person I love to have a fire going out side when we are working or just relaxing  and it helps to get rid of the pieces of wood that aren't good for the inside wood stove and my favourite  tool to get the out side fires going is a small canister  blow torch  Papa always jokes about me and my little  blow torch  lol  !a966ce37-b56a-4c83-a31e-aa8b4c2a32b5_300

             We have the camping fire pit out in the yard but   I love this Chiminea  . We have it far enough from the patio porch to sit and enjoy  yet not to far to feel its heat on a cool fall day !.

       My knee is feeling better  however Miggs still cant run like she used to as her knee is still a bit sore but she is doing better .

                                        Some of our bushes and plants are still thriving so we have left them for now.

Hi Elaine. You have a good supply of wood to keep you warm this winter. I know it takes a lot of work to get it ready but it's so worth it. We don't have wood heat but wish we did as it's so cozy and warm and I'm so cold all the time. Our weather has been beautiful and it's 25 here this afternoon! I'm lapping it up for those colder days to come. Haha. Have a great day and week.

A lot for you to do as the fall goes along!

The sky was clear in Ottawa for the first part of the eclipse- but the clouds moved in just as the last sliver was visible. We did get a brief glimpse though of the full eclipse when the clouds parted briefly.

Lovely photos Elaine, hope you get better soon as well as Miggs! We saw the blood moon here in BC, was an incredible site as well as a very clear sky.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
