A Few Pictures

Not much happening around here. We put up icicle xmas lights along the roof yesterday. It was a beautiful day and not that cold so we figured why wait until it's bitterly cold and probably snowing to do it. Early this morning, while it was still dark, we turned them on and went outside to see how they looked. We both agreed that they looked very pretty especially against the new house colour. I'll be doing one of the archways with fairy lights and putting a xmas tree on the deck with lots of lights.

The word is, that there is a bear still hanging around. We haven't seen it but the woman just down the road has had her garbage torn up again and the people across the road have seen it in their driveway. They should all be heading off to hibernate by the end of the month.

A touch of frost.

The look of Autumn

Still hanging on.

These berries always remind me of jewels.

Great photos as always. Shouldn't that bear be hibernating by now? I wonder if something else tore up the neighbour's garbage. Have you seen a lot berries this Fall? How about squirrels? That's supposed to be one of the signs of a hard Winter.

The green leaves nipped with frost in the third photo look like they were dipped in sugar--beautiful. In the previous post, loved the photo of your kitty sitting with all the books in front of the window.

You have certainly had your share of bears. The kitty looks awfully comfortable on that soft throw.

Oh I bet the lights look great! Mom has decided to be a scrooge this yr and announced she doenst want to have Christmas! So much materialism has finally gotten to her. I try to make the majority of my gifts for that very reason.
Your photos are great as that Jay just barely hanging on!
Hope the bear posing no more threat than strowing the garbage around and eventually goes to tap his long nap!!

We have a bear in the area too ... lots of poop ... but we haven't seen him/her ... close to where we live too but his route takes him a slightly different way ... so my bird feeders and compost are untouched.

BabySis hasn't heard anymore from their bears. They either moved deeper into the woods or were trapped and released in the Daniel Boone National Forest not far from there.
PrettyBoy has such a contented look on his face. I love it when I look up and ShellBee cat is looking at me with that expression. I call it her 'looks of lovin'.
