Chuck and I have been enjoying some time together these last two weeks as he is in between contracts right now. I was very happy when we learned the dates of his last contract and it stated Chuck was done October 7. That meant he had pretty well the whole month of October off. My favourite month! The plan right now is for the next contract to be just part time work, maybe a couple days a week, until January when we think Chuck will go back to full time work.
The weather has cooperated for the most part (it has been raining for the last two days) so we have been getting out for day trips a few times a week.
We picked up my Mum last Friday and brought her back to our home for the day as she hadn't seen our new house yet. We had a lovely day and she was able to view some of the gorgeous scenery around our town.
The leaves are still so incredibly beautiful right now.
We have a set of train tracks that run right through the middle of our town. The train whistle is a sound I like. My grandparents lived right by train tracks so it is a sound of home to me.
These are the Murray Hills. Always beautiful but more so this time of year.
We are corn and soybean growers in this area.
We have watched this little shed deteriorate over the last 30 years or so.
Sweet Pea seems to have made a friend in another one of the cats in the neighbourhood. Sweet Pea sat a foot away from this white cat while it was eating on the deck and then came inside for his supper.
Beautiful cat but very skittish. Hard to tell but it is very large.
We visited one of our local antique stores while on our walk a few days ago. You know me and old magazines! Two for $6.00 was my price. The Chatelaine (a Canadian magazine) is from 1955 while the Journal is from 1971.
This was the evening sky a few nights ago. I love the wispy clouds.
We plan on finishing cleaning up the gardens this weekend and hopefully starting on the painting in our bedroom.
