Check in from Buffalo Pound Lake

(to view the images in their actual size, please click on each individually)

I can’t believe how time flies! We are fully immersed in fall activities. The deck cover and outdoor furniture have been safely stowed away for winter and not a day too early! We had a light dusting of snow on Tuesday morning which melted away fairly quickly and before I could take a picture of the white stuff.

Today’s images are from yesterday’s walk and the panorama was created just a few minutes ago from the studio deck. Ahhhh, a glorious fall day that deserves appreciation and another walk this afternoon.

What’s happening in the studio? I am using up yarns I found during my purge. Evenings are spent knitting children’s socks, and I am nearly finished with the shawl for my sister. My niece has asked for a shawl for herself… all I have to do is find yarn she might like. She loves greens…  not my favourite hue, which will make working on it a real labour of love.

The rest of the studio is still packed and the plan to revisit the boxes and their treasures to determine if I can reduce my supplies further continues to top my list of things to do. I have decided to enjoy fall and the warm weather for now. Once the snow flies and the temperatures drop I will turn my energy and attention to the second round of purging.

In the house, preparations are underway to add a powder room near the entrance. Colin has worked out the logistics and each day a little progress is made (when he is not working on the group project for his weaving group). We have about four or five months, as we have resigned ourselves to the fact that we will spend another winter in this house.

Thanks for checking in! Enjoy the day – I hope the sun is shining where you are!

  1. So enjoy the pics. Sask is lovely in the fall too. Good idea to wait for the snow to fly before starting another purge. Soon there will be only Colin,puppies and you left to take care of. Sorry to miss you when you were in town. Have been busy with Elsa etc. Smile at the lovely temps. Leona

    Thanks for sharing these lovely fall pictures. You know How I love trees. I especially like the skinny tree bending over the lake. I also like the natural grass branches bending over the lake. It;s a really nice close up of the tops of the grasses. Carol

    • Thanks, Carol. Still practising my good eye! Miksang is part of my daily routine when I get out and explore the landscape. Glad that you enjoyed the images from yesterday. Hope all is well and you are making good progress on your quilt show entries!
