Quite balmy for mid-November

Today the temperature reached 60 degrees, so we spent it mostly outside.  First, a long walk in the woods, intermittently jarred by distant shotgun blasts.  It's hunting season.  Then we picked up 1.38 tons of stone for our pre-winter road repairs.  The aging, rusty truck didn't sag a bit.
Here we are waiting for the guy to drive his pay loader up the hill to meet us and dump the stop into the truck.

Today the sky was amazing!

This is the roof to an outdoor community garden in nearby Catskill, New York.  It's hard to see through the windshield glare, but it's remarkable.

Newest yard sale toy.  They don't make them like this anymore.

Sleep tight

As the temperatures dip, particularly at night, we spend more time inside the cozy cabin. The smell of woodsmoke and the waning light evoke a strong sense of comfort as we settle in against the cold windy nights.

Seemingly unnecessary bridge and a patient dog



Finn hiked ahead, around the bend. As usual we had every confidence that he'd be waiting for us, and as we approached we found him patiently waiting.  Could he be any more charming?
