Gosh these weeks go by so quickly.  Today is wonderful sunshine and I've got my Dozer dog waiting for me to take him for a walk.    He sure gets impatient .......  :-)   he had to wait a bit longer this morning whilst I showered and washed my hair but he's sitting beside me now just waiting for me to move away from the keyboard and get out there....   It will soon be Halloween .... I have seen lots of pretties in the stores ....  I sure do wish I'd done the trick or treating thing when I was younger but living in Australia we just didn't celebrate Halloween at all.    Some pretty little girl images for you today... click on them to see their original sizes....

Well a shock today....  snow... already.  It's way to early.  Even the bears aren't prepared for snow.  It was very frosty when we woke up then later this morning down came the pretty white stuff... (which I love completely).  I had to put on my coat and go for a walk in it of course.....  but its only the end of September. I can remember a few years back when we didn't get snow until the 21st December and everyone was wondering if we weren't going to have a white christmas.  It's way too early for it ...
I think I'm the only one in town who loves the snow...  but hey! ... it's a treat for an Aussie to see it and especially at Christmas time when we are so used to having hot days and sweltering heatwaves.

I guess tomorrow now I'll have to put away my patio furniture... it looks weird covered in snow....    :-)

wow soon our weather will be like this up here in the Canadian woods ... if the temperatures are any indication.

Rain today and very chilly as I took my beautiful white Dozer dog out for a walk. I needed my coat and would have liked to have worn my gloves as well.  Very cool and it seems to have come upon us so quickly.  Old Dozer of course doesn't much care what the weather is like as long as he's walking ... but it did surprise him this afternoon when I opened the door for him to go out and he did a pretty quick U-turn on the deck and came rushing back inside....    Snow is up on the mountains and it never really completely left this summer.  oh dear ! .......

The little birds are busy filling themselves up getting ready for the winter.  So are the bears. We've had a few around us lately ... so gorgeous. I loved seeing them on the green grass.  Pure black ...  I still have a persistent squirrel who is wanting to build a squirrel home in the bird feeder. I'd let him do it if it wasn't for the fact that cats can easily get to him or her....  or even the crows... so it wouldn't be nice to have them feed on the baby squirrels next spring.  Gosh there is always something happening...  bless them all.  I do worry about them in the winter. It's a battle of life for most of them...

A card for you to stash away....  I noticed now when you click on
the images to see them original size they come up differently with a black background .. some sort of viewer thingy that Blogspot have started...   Anyway click on it to see it larger and save it from there....
Heard on the news this morning that Fall begins next week.   Where did our summer go to.  Ours was practically non existent this year ... perhaps not a good sign for the long winter to come.  My deer will be returning sooner than later I think.    I will miss sitting on the deck listening to the birds .,.. but I guess I didn't do much of that this year either in between all the rain we were having.  No wonder there are zillions of beautiful trees here in British Columbia.  They sure get plenty of water... and they are packed in so thick as you drive past on the highways or venture into the woods that its so dark in there you'd never see a black bear if he was looking at you face to face.  Anyway I guess all that crummy summer gave me time to open my Etsy Shoppe and make some very pretty things for everyone and its proving a popular venture.  I'm surprised at what the ladies want to do with my images.  Ideas I'd never thought of.  They like them and so do I...  :-)

If you have a Kindle ... here is a free Victorian romance for you ... just for today I'm presuming.  Usually they don't last much longer than 24 hrs as a freebie so grab it while you can. I have just downloaded it...  It's called Vanquished... by Hope Tarr.

Remembering September 11th today.  We will never forget the images and the sorrow. Heartbreaking this morning to see loved ones crying ....

and just as special are all the lives lost in the wars after this happened.  As they read the names of those who died at the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon and at Shanksville ...I wish they would read the names also of the soldiers who have died and the thousands upon thousands who have been injured in their efforts to catch the terrorists.  Of course that's an impossible task but one that we cannot forget.

Root canal... is there anything on the planet worse than root canal at the dentist.  I was there for 4 hours .... getting too old for that stuff. 


A pretty little girl from my Etsy Shoppe ... "Lace and Flowers" ... there are eight different ones on the digital collage sheet and you can print them out and use them for every occasion imaginable.  I sure do love using these as pink is my favourite colour, and when you add lace and a pretty girl... its scrumptious.  :-)
Anyway click on the image to see it original size...
hope you like it...

Dentist visit today .... and then another one at 4.30 p.m. same day. I've never done that before.  Came out of the surgery and threw up on the footpath. Felt rotten.  Gosh I sure do hate going to dentists and doctors.   We still have our little grands stopping with us and I think I'm beginning to get cartoon overdose.  :-)   Love the kids, hate the cartoons. Oh well.... I can always read my Kindle which I adore. Its great and yesterday I took it to the doctors and read my story whilst I waited for my turn.

 A desktop wallpaper for you. I don't think I've shared this one before...
it comes.. of course of course.. from my whimsydust.com "Divine Desktop wallpapers" collection .. 55 of them in a bundle... Click on it to see it original size and it looks great on my big computer screen. 

Don't forget to also click on the animal site down the right hand column .. please do that regularly. It doesn't cost you anything and you can donate bowls of food for the cherished darlings who have no home or shelter.  Sometimes I have to click there really fast because I get so upset at seeing images etc... but be brave... do as I ask ... please... every click will help them survive. 

I'm having trouble this morning with the dreaded lock icon appearing in my files. Its a windows 7 thing and when I see previews of my images the lock appears in the bottom left hand corner ... I've tried numerous times to get rid of it but it keeps returning.  I hate windows 7 .. and I definitely hate windows live mail... urgh!   why do they make things so complicated these days ....

My eyesight is improving on a daily basis after my surgery .... I love being able to see so much better except of course when I look in the mirror and see wrinkles I never knew I had. Not to mention also a small cavity in the front tooth on the bottom ... its very tiny but now I can see it so I have already made an appointment with the dentist. Maybe a face lift will be my next adventure .. (when I win the lottery .. ) lol.

This morning there seems to be a whole lot of changes everywhere I visit. Even blogspot has a different uploading area ... then there was Yahoo mail.. they have a new look. I sure wish they would leave things alone because inevitably it causes problems..like the passwords at yahoo mail weren't working and they had tons of complaints and problems. 

Our summer seems to have forgotten to appear this year and already its getting chilly and so much cooler.  My flowers didn't last long ..and I only had a couple of days to sit out on my deck.  Yikes !  .. the beautiful little deer will be returning soon I guess when the first snowfall happens.  I miss them when they don't appear ... it will be interesting to see if they still feel familiar with the place after they smell my new "old doggie" Dozer around.  He'll be locked up good and safe inside whilst I feed them so he shouldn't be a problem. 

I hope you all have a great day wherever you are in the world.
