A Sun Shiny Day
Woke up to +3C this morning. It's turned out to be a glorious day once again. Tomorrow himself will be going on his holiday. Monday he had come down with a dreadful cold or flu. A rare thing for either of us. He had fever off and on but by Thursday was feeling quite good. Then yesterday it came back with a vengeance but today he's feeling very much better. I know he's feeling better because he hasn't stopped talking since he got out of bed. lol. I've been taking echinacea three times a day hoping to ward it off.....fingers crossed! I went to the library and took out some movies, got myself a bottle of wine and now I'm all set for next week when I can haul back on the chesterfield and chill out, lol. This afternoon I've invited a few friend in for Irish Coffee and snacks, sort of a farewell and have a good trip for the old fellow.
I went outside for a walk around. How beautiful with so many colours on the ground and the air so fresh and crisp. Walked over by the stream. It was very quiet, just the sound of trickling water and the smells of autumn were strong and beautiful. It was magical.
Stream with leaves on water.
Fern in autumn colour.
Quite a few mushrooms about.
A friend gave me some bulbs last spring and they are now blooming. Don't know what they are though.
Chick a dee
Bits and pieces.
And the little imp. Don't know why he has chewed holes in the top of the feeder as it comes up so easily.
