Preparing for Winter


Here I am, thinking of winter (I'm actually looking forward to it this year), & it was a glorious Autumn day. It was nice out, sunny but not too hot. No biting bugs. A perfect day.

The birch tree in the center of the driveway looks like something took a big bite out of the top of it.

I snapped this picture of my quilt-mobile to show Rian, she's not the only one that drives a big rig. It's ok Rian, you don't have to feel guilty about it.

Warren took advantage of the nice day, & got the base for the new deck screwed down. Then we layed the boards on top of it to get them off the ground for the winter. If he has any more nice days off, he'll start cutting & laying the quilt pattern, but for now, we just layed them her to get them out of harm's way.

This last picture is the view off the back of the deck today.

Your home looks so cozy and its setting so vast. Lucky you!

Do I understand that your deck is going to be a quilt? OMG! Is that cool or what?

Yes Debra, it's going to be a Log Cabin quilt-deck!

Thinking of winter so soon? :) But then, I guess it will be winter for you very soon. Time to keep the hot coffee coming!

Beautiful! Hey, thanks for the picture of your quilt rig. I can't wait to pull my trailer into your driveway and get warm by your old stove.

Enjoyed all your lovely pictures Deb. I'm glad someone else enjoys Autumn and Winter too, of course your Winters are much colder than ours. We used to have a lot more snow when I was a child than we do now though and the Summers were better too. Maybe it's my memory playing tricks with me (smile)

Nice snowflake block. :) And I second the raves about the views. Nice to see the autumn colors too--we're not so far along of course.

Wow it would be great to live someplace where you had a view like that. Definitely worth making a deck so you can take full enjoyment of it.
And stop thinking of winter! Let's enjoy a very long fall season, shall we?
