October, a month of warm weather turned cold quickly. The beginning of the month I was in shorts and now it’s fire time! I do love the fall and the beautiful colors of the forest.
A delicious plate of fruit goodness, part of our weekly Sunday brunch!
Additional touches for The Shanty, solar lights and log seating.
Complete with log seating around the campfire.
Love the view from behind “the bar”.
Bear, our guest for a couple of days while his parents were gone having their baby.
Self-portrait practice with an added bonus, Josie joined in!
Some of autumn’s beauty around the 100-acre woods.
Nugget among the leaves.
Love the forest colors right now.
With colder weather, comes lazy animals!
I almost forgot, here is my selection of books for the month:
- “I See You” by Clare Mackintosh (374 pages): Excellent book! It sucked me in from the beginning and had me on the edge of my seat. A thrilling novel that kept me guessing.
- “And the Sea Will Tell” by Vincent Bugliosi (708 pages), non-fiction: Wow this one surprised me. I thought it would be too long and boring. Instead, this non-fiction read like a novel and kept me wanting to turn the page. I found it interesting to learn how he prepared for the case and presented it. I highly recommend this one.
- “Gut Makeover” by Jeannette Hyde (231 pages), non-fiction: Very enlightening book written in an easy to understand format. This book was packed full of great information. I plan to start my 28 days next week. Wish me luck!
Hard to believe it’s November 1st. Two more months & we say goodbye to 2017!
