Not much going on

  Well, it's been a while since I last posted and thought I should let everyone know what's going on. For the most part, it has been raining way more than I would like and it was a heavy rain. So, pretty much I have just been hanging out watching movies or sitting on the deck thinking about things. Eventually, the rain did stop and thought it was time to start cutting up the tress I cut down a year ago and hauling them out to my pole barn.

  I got quite a few out but, still have many more to do and that is my goal right now. The temps. have been going down in the mornings. Which I enjoy. That night I made a great meal.



This morning it was 28 degrees but, didn't get a pic. I also had a fire going all night in my new stove which turned out to be a good idea.

  The wood in this stove stays a whole lot longer than my other stove. I really don't have a lot to talk about but, I did take a lot of photos around my property. I never really took time to see what is on my property but, am glad I did. I was impressed at what I discovered. So, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.











































  Ok, that's enough for today. I have more photos but, I will save them for the next time. Hope you enjoy these photos. Take care.

Hi Bert, nice to hear from you. It is nice to have cooler weather and able to get things done. I keep a teapot with water on the stove now. I hope you get to make a visit.

John said...

Hi grammie, I hear they are getting snow up North. I'm sure we will get some soon. I enjoyed taking the these photos. Hope to get more.

Summer is coming to an end, any plans for the winter ?

Paul said...

Thanks for the photos John. We're in Hawaii at the moment enjoying the sun but see that winter is on the way up north.

Fungus and lichen have their own beauty and I appreciate pictures of them as much as I do of flowers and leaves...and other foliage. I love Alaska summers, for sure, but I never really dreaded...and in fact, really enjoy the coming of winter. Alaska winters can be quite challenging, but they can teach you so much about yourself! Thanks for keeping us updated. It's very interesting even when not much is going on, as you say. Oh, and yay for that stove!

It is amazing what beauty you will see when you take the time to look. I have tried very hard to teach my children as they grew up about natural beauty.

Pigs are up, need to put up some wood, and clean out the yard...should be ready for what comes after that...feels like winter is upon us. Right now as I sit here in the restaurant Im looking out the window to the lowering snow line on the mountains...before I go back to work want the top and walls on the addition. Glad to see your getting stuff done too...love the mushroom pictures..wish I knew more about them...

Hi Rum, Hawaii? Gee, some people have all the luck. The weather here is nice and cool. I have a lot of plans for the Winter.

John said...

Hi Penny, Mushrooms and Fungi can be cool. I agree, I enjoy Winter more than any other season.

John said...

Right on Becky, even at my age, am looking mote and more what is around me.

John said...

Hey John
Snowing pretty hard down here, but you can see it's not going to stick. Earlier I thought it might, but it's fading fast here at noon now.
Glad that stove is working out for you. Are you cooking anything with it yet (besides tea)? Rainy and Snowy wx I'd have a big black pot of stew going. But I'm not much for a lot of cooking. When I have to batch it, I make a big pot of stew or chowder and live on it for a few days at a time.
got to get busy putting the boats to bed now. and I got 3 rows of carrots to dig and put away before the ground freezes. Supposed to be mostly sunny tomorrow so you'll get another shot at cutting and stacking your wood. Stay dry

Hi John, It seems everyone is getting snow except me. Although, I do need to get some things done first. The mornings are getting colder. No cooking yet.

Carol G said...

I'm not getting snow here either, but we've had a couple days of temps dropping into the teens. The rainy days are warmer, fortunately.

As usual, I enjoy your "nothing happening here" posts! I often check in just to see what you're up to...

John said...

Hi Carol, I am working pretty hard to get ready for Winter. I really hate this rain. Thanks for stopping by.

Missing a new post and pictures...now that the pigs are up, green house down, yard cleared for snow plowing, going to use the next two sunny days to get the roof on the entry (I hope anyway)... What have you been up to?

Wash

John said...

Hiya John waiting for your new post they are always good and interesting even right down to the meals you prepare.Its warming to read your post and I really enjoy them...Hope all is well with you and you are getting some projects done and planning for the winter ahead.But most of all during all of this work remember to take care of yourself and rest as needed.Our minds are younger than our bodies.I get up every morning and its about 5 min before my mind catches up to my body at the coffee pot lol......take care your friend Bert from Bama

John said...

Hi Bert, good to hear from you. I am pretty busy getting things done. Will have a post soon. Except for the on and off rain, the weather has been great.

Carol G said...

I hope you are getting pics of the trees. It's been a pretty week around here.

John said...

Hi Carol, I hadn't really taken any tree pictures, been busy and didn't think abiut it. Maybe this weekend.
