Mornings are getting chilly in the Pacific Northwest. I have not yet turned on the heat in my house. This was the temperature in the house last week.
I have a gas fireplace which I turn on to take the chill off. The cats and the dog appreciate the warmth.
One outside chore is to clean up the flower pots that reside on the deck railing. Look at all the colorful trees in the background.
The only large tree I have to clean up after is my maple tree in the front yard. So far, there are minimal leaves on the ground.
The sprinklers have been blown out, winter fertilizer put on the lawn, the snowblower is out for maintenance, and I am ready for Halloween!
Now to just store the patio furniture and wait for leaves to fall so I can rake them up. Oh joy!
