Cuppa took these first two pictures when she walked Nikki Dee to the park the other day, and she has graciously saved some for me to post. Nikki Dee is having a great time playing in the leaves.
The next picture is all about getting ready for winter. They've put markers like this on all the fire hydrants in town this week, so they can still be found when they get buried in snow in afew months. Nikki Dee was having a meltdown at the time; fortunately, she doesn't do that very often at all.
I took my fiddle to the cottage last weekend and played it in the great outdoors. On two other days, I took it to the planer mill (that's what it used to be) that you see in the background on the extreme right. It's roofed but all screened in: the best of both indoors and outdoors wrapped up in one wonderful structure.
Finally, here are two more photos taken on our journey to the cottage last weekend. For these, I humbly suggest that you click on them to view them large. They will open in a new window, so you don't lose your place if that's a concern. They were taken from approximately the same spot, the first looking left and the second looking right. That's an old wood silo in the first picture. I don't recall ever seeing another one like it. I suppose most are made of wood, but this one seems to be older somehow.
