It came down pretty good last night.,We have blue patches also.,My wood is coming today.,It seems a girl on my granddaughters soccer team tested positive for covid and now all the girls have to get tested which my son is learning is a pita to do on a weekend.,And then they won't tell which girl out of around 50 was positive so nobody knows if their daughter was even close to the person or not..Let's just make everybody go through the worries and hassle so this girls privacy isn't violated.,what nonsense,lol.,

Breeze has picked up here,carrying what feels and smells like fresh Canadian air. A welcomed change from the humid swamp air masses we've endured all Summer, I messed around filming my birds and squirrel for a while as well as the morning light played with the maples, pretty.
Makes me want to invest in some better ( sharper) lens soon. I'm doing some studying now. All I have is the 18-55 Canon kit lens and an entry level 55-250 Canon telephoto. I'm not getting as sharp an image as I'd like. Like all things I'm torn between blaming the equipment or technical staff.

Those are great photos! I keep thinking I might invest in a better lens for my camera, but realize I can't ride two hobbies at the same time right now.
Last night's wind and rain knocked down a lot of leaves, but there is still color around us.

I managed to get furring strips up on both eaves, and installed the drip edge on the west side. The east side is more difficult to work, as I have to move my stepladder, and carefully level it with 2x6 blocking.
So, I made a scaffolding that is attached to the building for the east side. I can move the roof back and forth as needed, too.
My wife was working on a project in the greenhouse, so I helped a little with that. Always something going on!

I like the decorations! They put a lot of work into their display. Do they set up Christmas displays, too?

Scott, A couple of years ago the same house was decorated with a large assortment of inflatable figures. Shortly following Christmas, a substantial snow fall deflated the figures and they were forgotten until the early Spring when the mud and sand encrusted snow revealed what appeared to be a grotesque murder scene. Horribly twisted and disfigured bodies appeared with faces frozen in death screams, Elves, Angels, reindeer even Santa was not spared. Looked like the Christmas Massacre of Stephen King's tortured mind. I wish I had taken a photo! Only in the Kingdom would this be considered the norm.

I’ve got to look closer at Grey’s transit photos. Maybe that’s what he captured?

I happened to be in there this morning and they were out of Toe of Frog and Wool of Bat, so I don’t thing the cauldron will come to a full bubble…. Just a caution..
