Donned my hat, gloves, lambswool scarf and jacket with many pockets filled with hankies, and went for a very short buggy ride this morning. I wanted to be sure to get a couple of pictures of the cabin after the lawn guy has blown leaves, cleaned it out a bit and covered the things that need covering. I know he'll return to repeat the leaf blowing and mowing one more time. The peak of color has risen and is gone. Temperature at 11:30am is only 59°. It will be a very long wait for me to see pretty and be warm.  I simply do not like cold. Yes, I know, quit your fussin' and deal with it. You knew it would happen. Well I don't have to like it - NOT AT ALL.

Until next year in April this will be what I  hope to see.
At least until then I can read books by the fire and watch TV and dust a bit. I  can look out and see what is going on. My new eyeglasses help. AND....It's warm in here!

  1. I love your cabin. Everything looks neat and tidy, so that's a good thing going into winter. Reading by the fire sounds pretty good to me.

  2. I like all the seasons, but the cold gets to me so I would be by the fire tool :-)

  3. A perfect way to settle down for a long winter's "nap".

  4. Yep, the cold is coming, or here... We know we live where there is winter.... So.... We gotta' just prepare and then, get on with it.......

    Sounds good, anyway....

    But the COZY IDEA helps me. -smile-

    And November is a hard month to love, but have to try to deal with it......

    Stay warm...

    "Hark! The wind is rising,
    And the air is full of leaves.
    We've had our summer evenings.
    Now, for October Eves."
