Brown and Grey

The sun was out yesterday morning then it disappeared.  My spirits were buoyed for a short time.  We ran errands …mainly for the birds..needed Black Oil Sunflower Seeds and Sunflower Hearts as we use both in our feeders.

We stopped by a couple of garage sales.  I got a box of Shiny Brite Christmas Ornaments for 50 cents!

November 6 Mill Pond

No ice on the lake yet. Our whole world is either brown or grey. 

Deer Hunting starts today. That will add a little Blaze Orange to the landscape.  We don’t hunt anymore…we used to like just being in the woods…now we live in the woods.  I have seen Deer Season bring us –20 F to 70 F (-28C to 21 C eh!) …and everything inbetween.

  3. I will send some of our sunshine to you as it has been sunny all week and summer like temps the sun is shining right now 7:51am cooler out then it has been 10C eh! 50F but not freezing like it should be for this time of year thank goodness. Oh more shiny brights awesome ! A mix of colours still here in the grasses but mostly browns with white I love the wild grasses at the end of the season as they look interesting and great to photograph with all the different textures and shapes . Thanks for sharing have a good weekend !

  4. That's an amazing price for the lights. It's grey here too, but it's hot and grey, not a good mix.

  5. We had a few moments of sun yesterday late, but it rained hard overnight and is grey again today. We are nuts! Congrats on finding the ornaments at a bargain! I have up a new blog post if you get a chance to visit.

  6. There is a rainfall warning up here, so it will be a bit miserable. Lots of green grass though still and a few colourful trees still around.

  8. We still have fall...a few colorful leaves on the trees, weather in the fifties. We are storing up up memories of these days because we will be joining you in brown and gray by the end of the month.

  10. Good score on the Shiny Brites! You have me looking for them now too, but since I don't collect them, I just think of you.
    We still have a lot of color, but also a LOT of gray.

  11. How do you manage to find so many Shiny Brites? Do you have a lot of garage sales there? We don't have many at all. Another reason I love the midwest...lots of garage sales and the weather is always changing. I get bored down here in the summer.....hot and sunny day in and day out. I need the excitement of the weather up there! I still think it looks pretty.

  13. Like Karen commented, we're having heavy rain here today. I'm sure glad we have sandy soil or else the water would have nowhere to go!
    Great find, those Shiny Brites. GS season here is all done.

  17. Wow. For only fifty cents?! You must have a special radar for those Shiny Brites.
