A little storm blew through yesterday, and it rained/misted/drizzled from about 11am on. It was a reminder of what winter will be like, but it is nice to have the sun coming back out today as the clouds burn off.
Our little back yard seemed very happy, as there has been very little rain here this summer and it is looking a bit brown back there. It was so wintery that Tim made a fire last night (we 'sort of' needed it, in the way that you need to warm up when you don't close windows on kind of a chilly day). It was nice.
In the middle of the day, in the middle of the rain, Dave the Stinging Insect Guy and Mrs. Dave came by to remove a hornets nest from the hill going down to the canal. Tim had tried to kill it but it was in/under a log, and we needed to bring the Big Guns in. Dave took care of it.
I have spent a lot of time yesterday and Tuesday working on this, because I just want it finished:
Although here is a close up of the beads.
I also made chili (I think I had alluded to that earlier) so it was wintery all around.
