"Whew! Thanksgiving is over! WAIT – Christmas is right around the corner!" Do you think that's what this handsome guy is thinking? 🙂 I know what the grandkids and I were thinking when we spotted them in the yard! YIKES! What is HE doing HERE! 🙂 Talk about a fun shock for this Sandwich Generation granny nanny to end the autumn season!
The calendar still says fall, but the trees bereft of leaves are hollering out WINTER!
There are a few bright spots in my senior mom's gardening projects – like these lovely reddish autumn flowers.
The rest, though, are frozen and dying.
Except for the Mr Lincoln Rose. Not that there are any flowers, but the leaves are definitely a cheery green!
Our logs are stacked neatly, with more tucked safely in the garage to stay warm. And the Strike a Fire fire starter matches (sticks?) are right beside our wood stove, just in case! Haven't had to use them the past two years, but we're ready. And with the weather predictors saying La Nina may make for a harsher winter…Our Sandwich Generation family is ready for full-on winter. How about you and yours? 🙂
