A great day for some outdoor chores...

Fall brings with it a lot of work before the snow flies.

We have a lot of trees so there are a lot of leaves to pick up.

Then comes getting the gardens ready for the winter.

A handful of small tasks and then it is to cutting wood.

I love the smell of fresh cur or split wood.

Fall has all kinds of musky odors and that does drive my wife crazy.  But I love it!
