A Few Weeks of Change

Well the last few mornings we have woke up to grey winter skies.  We've gotten quite a bit of snow already and the drifts around the house are huge even just for only 2 days of snow.  It's windy here on the prairies!

I'm thoroughly enjoying all the visiting creatures that hunker down in our backyard.  For the last 2 days, we've had large flocks of swans, Canada geese mixed with a few ducks stay at the waters edge.  It's hard to believe that we had beautiful green lawn on Sunday!!

A few pictures from these past 2 weeks...

Fri. October 12
A fiery sunrise!

Tues. October 16
One last autumn sunrise!

 Sun. October 21
Arrival of the swans.  Notice... NO snow!

Mon. October 22
Snow has arrived along with more shore birds.

Wed. October 24
The ice is beginning to form on the lake.

The drifts in the front yard due to the high winds yesterday & last night.

And that's where we're at today.  Spencer and I are both home with bad colds today so we'll probably be bundled up in front of the tv all day watching movies.  Hope we can both feel better by tomorrow...
