We have just had a wonderful week of warm weather. It has been more summer like than lots of days during summer. It is a little early for Indian Summer so maybe we will have the real thing some time in October.
It seems the trees just burst into colour. . . . or wasn't I paying attention.? I took my camera today to take a picture of a spectacular tree with scarlet leaves. I saw it a few days ago. Today, it was almost without any leaves. I missed it! Sometimes beauty is fleeting.
With the weather so nice I took the opportunity to re -shingle my porch roof. It is about time. I have had the shingles for a year. With my aches and pains It was difficult.
It is hard to believe I re-shingled the roof of my two story house with its cottage roof, alone a few years ago. I like to tell people I did that in three weeks and only fell off the roof once. Luckily I fell off the front side and landed on the porch roof, while my ladder ended up in the middle of the road. I think God wanted me to rest so I quit for the day.
To finish the porch off I finally gave in and asked my son to come and help me. He and #1 grandson, Dylan, came and we managed to finish the roof before the weather changed. Blessings on them both. I am finding it hard to accept I am getting older and cannot do all I used to do.

Cats have moved in.
With Denis gone the cats have moved into the spare room and are enjoying the bunk beds.
These are the beds my brother and I had as children. I guess they are about 60 year old. I am not one to spend a lot of money on furniture.
