Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

The Autumn is Just About Fully Spent~



It is the week of Thanksgiving for we here in the United States.
I am thankful every single day for all that I have in my life.
This week I am sharing the last of the Autumnal colours and net week will share a few of them, covered in that white fluffy stuff, you know that word...SNOW.
The Cedar Waxwings came through rather randomly this season.  
Usually we see a whole lot more than this time.  
Where they are, you can usually also see the American Robins, along with Eastern Towhees, also known here as Rufous sided Towhees.

My friend Laurene sent me this delightful Owl suet feeder...isn't it charming ;)







I was making my way into the big city for Bible study one Sunday a couple of weeks ago, when I spotted a Coyote in the cow field at Foxhollow Farm.  
Poppy, if you see this, I know that you shall be smiling...yes that place has it all ;)






On Tuesday, I go into town to pick up our twin grandsons from school.  
There are a few different ways to arrive there and one is driving through a ...eyes blink and through it..., kind of town called Skylight.  
This old general store is there and I loved the character of the place~

Lots of Wild Things Visiting This Land~




Our property adorned in her autumnal colours and our dogs, Silveit on left and Meaka to the right being walked down our lane 2 weeks ago.  
Now all colour has vanished and we have had snow and record breaking cold snap and it is only November...huge sigh, here comes a long cold Winter~

It is about to be a busy week for this family.  
Our youngest daughter and her husby fly in today for a week stay.  
Thus said, in order to get things done ahead of time for the holidays, I have been busy house cleaning and adorning our Christmas tree and home already.  
Those shares coming soon.
Often times throughout my week, I think about those of you who come to visit me here on my blog.  I am forever grateful for your generous spirits of encouragement and sharing life with you.  
Next Thursday, for those of us who lives in the USA, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving. 
 I actually celebrate it daily, but it is a time to reflect on all that we have and whom we have in our lives, and I am thankful for you all as well.
Also it has been bothering me and I need to say this as well.  
Your visits and comments mean so much to me.  
The way it works in our home, is that the husby and I share the desktop computer.  
All of my images are stored there and I can get to my blog best from there...but often times, I cannot have my time when I need it.  
My little laptop is what I use for some things like Facebook and using Bing to search, but it is forever slow and so I do not visit your blogs from there, but have to wait when I can get time on the desktop.  
I do always get caught up with you all and that is the important thing...staying in touch and I am so thankful for each one who stops by for a visit.  
BTW for those who may be interested following recent computer risks, Webroot is working out great!  

~HAPPY THANKSGIVING~

White-tailed Deer above and I had fun with these leaf fronds~




Peach trees and White-tailed Deer running everywhere.  
It is hunting season and also rutting time~






Seed pods casting their final gifts for the future and Persimmons on our land~







Can you see the deer tucked inside the growth of coverage below ;)


If I hear the sounds of the American Crows bantering loudly and wildly, then I know I better grab the camera for there will either be an owl, or hawk on our property.  
A Great Horned Owl and also a Red-tailed Hawk have visited us in past 2 weeks~









Just shot these photographs on Tingsgrove a week, 10 days ago, and now nothing is left of the leaf canopy~


A rainy day in horse country and I loved the depth of colour of this tree~


Yeah, the Dark-eyed Juncos have returned~



I was fascinated by a pair of Northern Flickers, also known as Yellow-shafted Flickers here last week eagerly plucking the last of some of the berries on our land~
