The end of summer

We do still have some flowers, but they are starting to die off now as you can see.  Not much going on around here and I have been pretty lax in taking pictures lately. 

We lost Paws, one of our cats a couple of weeks ago now, she was hit by a car and we new eventually that would happen.  She was our mouser, she would kill the mouse then drop it at our back door to let us know that she was doing her job!  Our other cat, Cloe, doesn't do much of anything but be a pain in the neck!

This weekend is going to be very busy with trying to get all the summer things put away for the winter, like the boat, the fish pond etc.

We are going to bring the fish down into the basement and put them into a stock tank with a pump.  We have a very warm basement because of the wood stove pumping the hot water to the basement.

Hope you all have a wonderful evening.

Poor cat.sorry to hear it. I leave my fish outside in the stock tank for the winter......we have to use a tank heater anyway and it's SO much easier than bringing them inside.

It is so hard to keep outside cats safe. Even though you think it will happen it is still a shock. Sorry.
Love your new loom and the designs. And congratulations on your grades! Are there study groups in the class? Sometimes there are a group of students that study together a few hours a week... in a class like that everyone needs a helping hand.

Gosh! I'm so sorry! It's terribly hard to lose animals we love.

So sorry to hear about Paws. We aren't ready for winter either, it's hard to get things done when Ted is working away from home. Hope he quits and just does his at-home repair shop.
