I tried not to let thoughts of approaching cold weather interrupt the sunshine and warmth, sights and smells on this gorgeous October day.
The pungent smell of burning leaves, fresh cut firewood and Windex fill the air as the final outside chores are checked off the to-do list .
Beautiful birch branches lay on the lawn as Dave surveys his wood pile. Is he thinking about how many more trips to the woods he needs to make before the stockpile is enough to get through the winter?
I hope he is also thinking about the project I mentioned to him earlier that involves those birch branches!
Wood neatly stacked in the backyard after it is split.
Pointing the camera up through the maple leaves captures what it must feel like to be a squirrel!
Our maples in the front yard are some of the last in the neighborhood to show off their golden orange and yellows.
Look at that blue October sky!!
I've added some twinkly lights to a potted shrub in the backyard.
I see Dave didn't forget about the project I mentioned earlier! Since the Green Bay Packers won today he was in a pretty good mood.
It's nice getting a little head start on a Christmas decoration!
Hope your October Day was filled with sunshine and wins!
