We’ve been enjoying a very benign fall season so far, one where during the day temperatures have been as good as summer or better. At last! Rainforest? Not right now… Still, we know real fall and some rain is ready to make an appearance in due course, but until it does, we’re thankful for the misty mornings and mild sunny afternoons.

Misty mornings

Thanksgiving is here this coming Monday, and along with the current mellow seasonal moods, we’re thankful for so much more. We moved to Canada this time of year many years ago, so the holiday is special to us. We’re grateful to live where we do, and count ourselves fortunate to be able to do so. The wider human world appears to be as confused and contrary as ever, almost at constant war with itself over resources that ought to be enough to share, if only we could see reason and make some necessary changes for the good of all.

Still warm…

Anyway, preaching to the choir isn’t very helpful, so I’ll leave it here this week, feeling thankful for family and friends wherever they are, and thankful that we live in our quiet(ish) little corner of the world.

A quiet corner hangout

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

    1. Thanks, Walt! It was a good holiday, and we continue to enjoy a pleasant fall season, making the most of what you rightly identify as relative serenity…
      Hope all is well with you!


  1. Love your beautiful misty mornings and what a fabulous spider web, although that is one quiet hangout that I would have walked by very quickly! Hopefully my excitement over Bryce Harper and the Phillies moving on in the playoffs will distract you from Everton’s match. There’s been moments this year during Phillies games when I’ve told Harper we’re changing her name to Lulu, but after Bryce Harper’s home run and the great games this weekend I let her know I’ve only been somewhat joking. Hope you’re enjoying another beautiful fall weekend on the coast and Happy Thanksgiving!!🐾🙂


    1. Thank you! Oh that Everton game… scored too soon!
      I don’t follow the football, but feel certain Harper isn’t a Lulu…
      Still a surprisingly dry and warm fall here, and we’re certainly making the most of it, knowing what’s to come!
      Have a great week!
