1. We took down the Heron wind chime - you just knew I had a heron wind chime, didn't you? We don't get much wind here but when we do it batters the poor old heron, so into the shed until spring.
2. The leaves are beginning to turn a little - it is Don's favorite time of the year. This are Big Leaf Maples, some of the leaves are as big as dinner plates.
Woods just down the road from our house.
3. I took the last photos of the summer flowers at Joe's Gardens - our favorite farm stand - and it is right in town. The flowers will all be gone by this weekend - picked for bouquets and the plants pulled out. They had a glorious summer - so did we.
4. I got a bee in my bonnet this week and decided I needed to change the cover on my book about my childhood growing up in Alaska in the 50s, before Alaska was a state. I changed it to bright blue background - for one day - then changed it right back to the soft, old fashioned look. (Thank you Franni for the input). Not sure what made me do that - but I'm happier now that it is back to its original look.
It is available in print and on Kindle at amazon.com . A good book to snuggle up with on these cool autumn nights (well, it is cool and brisk here, not sure how autumn is for the rest of the world, or spring in the southern hemisphere - it is good for spring reading too)
5. I made a collage poster for Don's office of our three grandsons. This poster is 18"x24". I ordered it today, it should be here early next week. Jahn-Zyel is 12, Ben is 8 1/2 and Donnie was just 2 in June. Such handsome and smart boys. We are indeed the luckiest grandparents in the world!
