Update... After The Wind Storm Yesterday

 Just got in from surveying the damage. Just one tree down and it wasn't very heavy at all to move. Luckily it had been dead for a long time. What I found the most interesting is how hard the tree must have crashed as it fell to the ground. There were tiny snapped tree branches strewn a lot further out onto the lawn than I expected to find.  The negative part of all of this was how cold it was out there. Fingers still cold. On the bright side... temps are supposed to climb to 18 c today. Fingers crossed.



My Plans For Today... Will be picking up all the tiny tree branches for the next hour or so. Not sure what they would do to the lawn mower blade.

Nope... They Weren't Wrong

 Remember yesterday when I told you that our weather app was forecasting snow for today. We woke up to about an inch of snow on the ground, but it's supposed to be gone by lunch time. Well, so far it's snowed twice this morning and there is no sign of any melting. 

Just glanced up as I was typing this post... it's snowing even harder now! :(((((

If it was closer to Christmas, it would be quite pretty, but not in October. I guess we all will just suck it up and be happy that it isn't a week day!

My Plans For Today...Will definitely be working on my Yeoman line today.  I have fingers crossed that I have found her mom and dad!! They certainly weren't where I expected them to be!!

If I Throw Away The Snow Shovel... Hmmm

 I was just reading one of the quotes on here about rainy mornings.  I would love to have a few more of them before the month is over, but my weather app is telling me that we can start looking forward to snowy mornings
!! Don't like the sound of that at all. It's only October. I am hoping that they are wrong! Okay, we did move a lot further north than we have ever moved before and we tend to forget that since the Ontario border isn't that far away...

It's a New Day

 When was the last time you went out of the front door in bare feet? Before it gets too cold, go for a walk in the grass or if you are lucky enough, go for a walk on the beach. It's time to slow down and do a bit of meditation this morning.
