I am loving my $1.00 yard sale trike. It's very photogenic don't you think?
Well, it's almost Oct. 31st. Where did this month go to already??
We got through the big storm yesterday. Lots of rain and wind, power outages (we were ok) and, along the coasts of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, extremely high tides and waves crashing over beaches, wharves and roads. Today it's very windy and much colder. Yesterday it was 17C and so balmy and warm, and today it's only 10C but the gusting wind makes it feel colder. At least it's not snowing!
The leaves are blowing off the trees and most are bare now.

I've hung the bird feeders out again from our clothesline, out of reach of the squirrels. There have been lots of chickadees and this female downey woodpecker along with a male. I was standing on the ground when I took this photo and the bird was less than 4 feet above me. She wasn't the least bit timid.
Our front deck. I'm not sure how much longer those mums will last as they have been touched by frost already. I'll soon be putting all these things away until next spring and will make a winter arrangement in the milk can and an old graniteware container.
The sunrise this morning was breathtaking. The sun has moved about half way to it's lowest spot in the sky. Winter's coming.

Our kids at Halloween a 'few' years back.
Are you expecting lots of 'visitors' for Halloween? We usually only get about 7-10 which means we have lots of treats left over for us. Not that I buy a lot either as I usually just get a couple small bags of candy and a box of chips. (which are already partly gone!) :)
Thanks for visiting! I hope you all have a good and safe weekend.
