The days are getting shorter and the temps are steadily falling. October it is. The trees are starting to turn with the pears leading the way with a dark red. The deer are getting real serious about gathering calories to put on fat for the months ahead. And I haven’t started to get organized to start feeding the birds. Think that I will wait for the time change.
The new wood stove sits in it’s spot on the hearth. Today is the day to clean the chimney and hook it up. Have to start adding heat to our living quarters. No foolin says Rebecca. Then the propane tanks need filling. That is the fuel for the cook stove. Don’t want to run out cooking the Thanksgiving turkey. With wood and propane we are not dependent on electricity which can be down for days some winters.
We had tapas out on the deck yesterday with Henriette. We were all bundled up with sweaters. But it was bright and dry, so good. OK, just looked up when daylight savings is over for the year. It is 2am PT Sunday November 3rd. So, the walk that day will start at 1530, a half hour earlier til spring.
Off I go. Off to work on Autumn, a time of change.
Autumn loves, Felipé.
