We had a load of wood delivered on Sunday and a friend/neighbour helped us move it to his shed, where we stacked it. We filled the cupboard under the stairs as well and have some in the tiny entryway area. Today we rode with the same friend to Donegal Town, so we were able to buy a couple of bags of sticks from the wee greengrocer's stall and put them in the car. We're ready for heating season, although it is still at least a month away, if not more. Last year we used heat for the first time a week or so before Christmas, but who knows what this winter will bring. This coming weekend we change the clocks to winter time. I'm enjoying autumn. I find it to be incredibly beautiful in its own way. I never tire of looking at bare tree branches against the sky and I find that spent plants are often lovely, too.

I was very happy to find that Aldi still had a few more boxes of the coconut chai tea bags I got there a few weeks ago. I love that stuff, so I was pleased to be able to pick up a couple more boxes today. Perfect autumn beverage--I think I'll go make a cup right now!

I love this time of year too, but the last few days have been either rainy, too hot, or overcast & muggy. Love your photos!

Thanks, Vicki! I'm happy when it rains, but heat in October makes me particularly cranky ;-) Hope it cools down and dries up there soon :-)
