Chilly September Morn.

Early morning.   I was looking out through the patio doors and thinking how very lucky I am.  There before me were Blue Jays drinking from the bird baths, crows on the platform feeder enjoying breakfast, chick a dees, juncos and nuthatches eating sunflower seeds from the globe feeder and  squirrels running around the tree branches.  For me it's heaven.  Each morning when the crows fly in, I can tell you, it puts a grin on my face.

So....it's been a while since I posted anything.   Just lazy I guess.   I have been busy though.   I've put tiles down on the guest bedroom floor.  I've gone through all the dishes in the kitchen and eliminated quite a few then put new shelf paper in the cupboards.  I'm trying bit by bit to get rid of stuff in the shed so it can be torn down   Not an easy job as there is much I want to keep so the problem is finding places in the house to store it.   Not an easy task as my house is small.  I bought a heating wire for the water pipe coming up from the ground and going into the house.   I don't want to face the chance of frozen pipe this coming winter.   I might have to crawl under the house myself to do the job, not something I look forward to I can tell you as there is little space under there. 

Fall has arrived.   I'm getting things done in the garden bit by bit.   Always seems an awesome task.  My computer went bust about a month ago and I'm only now back on line.   I lost all my pictures and my bookmarks.  Not happy about that.  Here are some of the latest shots.











A walk on the beach.

It's really great to have you back on blogger again - with lovely pictures as usual (I'm in love with Tommy).

Don't like to think of fall yet, altho even in the UK the leaves are beginning to turn - out temperatures are a little higher tho...

Crawling under the house doesn't sound like any fun at all to me ;)

Good to hear from you again O.C. I'm sorry you lost so much data when your computer went bust. I love the photos of the jays. They don't half look pleased with themselves, do they. The big bullies. Autumn is on the way! My favourite time of year. I'll be in New Brunswick for the entire month of October. The longest I've been able to,visit since I moved to,England. Can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to it.

Take care,

Ali

OC, I'm so glad to see you posting! I'm sorry to hear that you lost all your photos, that's the pits. Love all the photos, especially the ones of the beach (so gorgeous!) and little Tommy's cute face. Stay safe...

Blessings,

Victoria

Bad news about losing your pictures, I am sorry to hear it.
Can you ask someone to get under the house for you perhaps? Not a job I would relish.

Good to see you again though. Good luck.
