October 2017 – week 41

Welcome back to this year’s photo-a-day journey. I’m sharing little bits of my daily life & travels.

This week’s weather has put us right into typical autumn weather, sun, showers, clouds & clear skies, and all of that within an hour. The days are also getting very noticeably shorter; the plus side is seeing spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

Now onto this week’s photos:

October 8 – from where I stand; autumn is time again for my boots! I dusted them off & polished them up and still love them…I am standing on my back porch, surveying our kingdom…it’s not too big, but it is ours!

October 9 – Happy Thanksgiving! It is Thanksgiving Day here in Canada – I hope you all have a good day. I have so much to be thankful for…from our home to yours…happy Thanksgiving wishes!

October 10 – drying hydrangea; I love that so many plants still show their beauty when they are drying up! Even in an autumn garden is beautiful, it’s just how you look at it.

October 11 – 🎶country roads; …🎶 take me home!🎶 This is, literally, the country road I take home everyday! Isn’t it pretty?

October 12 – just a touch of red; the leaves are just starting to change color in my neck of the woods; I love this little ‘touch of red’ down my road.

October 13 – sunrise over the cornfield; this was a pretty and typical sunrise this week. A blaze of red and then as the sun rose higher than the clouds, it remained a gray, cloud covered day.

October 14 – Saturday morning reflections; a slow start to my weekend with a relaxing cup of coffee & pretty reflections from outside the window; in a cup that evokes memories from our Hawaiian vacation at few years ago…
