It was 29°F this morning when I brewed coffee, and Killington Ski Resort in VT opened up this past weekend. 🙂
Our property borders a wooded area so the other day, I put on my boots, grabbed a real camera and headed out for a short walk.
I can’t hike the area because there are way two many downed trees and vines. But, I could walk a ways and check out Mother Nature’s unseen gifts.
Nature really is beautiful if you can only take the time to look all around and enjoy the little things.
Then there is the part of nature that is left by us humans, and it is quite embarrassing. I don’t think rebar growing into a tree, DD cups or five gallon plastic buckets were intended to be part of our natural environment.
I’ve done some raking and the wind did some more. I have a couple of beds that get buried in leaves from a neighbor’s oaks so if I take some off in the fall, I can work for hours and not days in the spring.
Have you adjusted to the time change? It takes me a while. I wish they’d just decide to leave it one way or the other. But, hey, no one asks me what I think because they probably have heard about my daylight savings time rant. 🙂
Happy first Monday in November.
This is a special day on my calendar – it’s my grandson’s 14th birthday. Oh, but ‘grandchildren time’ certainly flies by. Happy Birthday big guy!
