I had great fun over the weekend. Saturday we were out running errands and stopped at an estate sale. I will have to get some photos and do a post on it - but I found some wonderful treasures for very little money. What fun! We also bought all of the hooks etc I wanted for my new shed, and I spent quite a bit of time organizing that. Right now it's kind of jam-packed because I want to store as much stuff as I can for winter - but I think it's going to be very nicely organized for next spring. We also bought the stain for the shed - now we just need some dry weather so we can get it done!
Monday the kayaks went down to a storage garage we rent to store our Vette for the winter. (Oh, gosh - it's October and I never showed you a photo of my lovely Corvette! I will have to do a post on it because we are thinking seriously about selling it next spring.) Today we pulled the pontoon and it went to a storage shed for the winter. And tomorrow the big boat comes out. Then we get to start taking out the dock. And you notice this list doesn't include any garden chores I still have to finish!
Last night I was restacking the firewood pile (had to move it to put in the shed), and there was the most beautiful sunset. I barely caught it because Miss Tess decided to jump the fence and join me at the neighbor's (where she is most definitely not welcome), so I had to return her to the yard with a scolding and then go back and get my photos. I think this winter I'll have to work on getting better long-distance photos like sunsets and sunrises.
In all of our running around we really didn't see any spectacular autumn foliage. I think it was just too warm for it to really turn colors and now a lot of the trees are bare. The sumac was gorgeous and some maples - but our color wasn't as brilliant as it is some years. I'm sad that the days are getting so short, but I have a lot of activities planned for this winter, so before I know it we'll be enjoying another beautiful summer!!
