A gorgeous late November day. The City came by and picked up our huge pile of leaves, we got our flu shots and had a big ol' jet fly over while we were out for a walk. Warning: The elf may be a regular in my collages this Christmas season.
Yesterday we spent our first full day at home doing things that we've put off for months. Leaves raked, house cleaned, laundry done, shopping and I got my eyes checked. So today, we goofed off! Went out into the country for a walk, had lunch at a favorite Mexican restaurant and stopped at an antique store. I got the cute little vintage elf that I've wanted since last year.
I didn't take any pictures today. I was too busy getting ready for Thanksgiving. Today was the last day for our outdoor shower tent. After tomorrow, the temperatures will be way too cold to use it. Time to go home I guess. Probably on Tuesday.
This morning while Jim was hunting, Molly and I took a walk at the Gordon dam. The sky kept changing, there was a small shower and a very faint rainbow appeared. Top picture is of a hunting camp set up in the campground. These are guys are ruffing it!
After being home for a couple days, Molly and I returned to the Northland. As you can see there wasn't much traffic on opening day of deer hunting. I stopped at Walmart in Rice Lake and scored a free Oreo shopping bag!
Trying out a new app for today's collage. It snowed almost all day, but didn't amount to much around here. Not sure about in Hayward where we went this morning. It was almost white-out conditions for awhile.
Another ugly day was brightened by seeing a bird I've never seen before. It's called a Varied Thrush and is commonly see along the west coast. This one must've been blown to the Midwest by some strong winds. Made a big pot of beef stew that was delicious!
And I thought yesterday was ugly! It was nothing like today. It was so bad we decided we had to go "uptown" for lunch and a few other stops. Went to the Shabby Shed and bought our Christmas tree! We both really liked this green and gold, glittery creation that lights up! Cost was only $8.00!
Went into town today and stopped at three of the 4 stores. I didn't need anything at the auto parts store. LOL. The pictures in the lower right corner are of the same road, taken a month or so apart. Quite a difference eh?
I'm the female version of "Jack of all trades, master of none". I make bottle cap pincushions as well as other items made with felt and sell them in my Etsy Store, Up The Creek. I make most of these pincushions while at our cabin in northwest Wisconsin. Our cabin is right "Up the Creek" from an active beaver pond. There's always something going on out there. Birds and other wildlife are abundant Up the Creek. I try to get good pictures of bird and wildlife and will post them, even if they're not award winners. My goal is to share what I see. Not to win any medals.
