This morning, when I walked outside. I had to go back in and get a sweatshirt. Yay!! I just smiled to myself that the breeze was cold enough again. I watched as the Flickers flew with his bouncing flight from one tree to another tree. I was just so happy to see those red undersides of his wings.
So I did, it made me laugh. I had to go get my camera.
I made applesauce with some of my apples yesterday. Today I hope to make a pie. There is just something about fresh apples that makes me happy, I would rather eat an apple this time of year than just about anything. I did buy some sweet potatoes so I could make a sweet potato pie too. Just a tiny bit of cooler weather and I just want to bake and bake.
One of the really sweet things this morning, was the Meadowlarks are back too. One was so close he sounded like he was in my flowerbed. It made me so happy to know they are back for the winter. The blue jays are not happy about all of these new guys showing up. They spend the afternoon complaining about the state of things around here. So everything is all good. Unless you are a bluejay!
I hope you have a day filled with golden sunshine and gentle breezes.
