Wow... weather has turned crappy... seems to want to rain every day.  I haven't seen my little squirrel for some time so I think she's busy making ready for winter.  I hope she's not been hurt or caught by cats or other predators.  Our lawn is looking bare now with no garden furniture or potted plants etc and soon we'll have to wrap our little trees in hessian so the deer won't eat them.  They walk passed our place all the time and I think they look at the trees as some sort of chocolate box filled with something delicious.  Lots of places around town have the same trees and if you see them in the winter they have turned into topiary trees .. with just the leaves at the top and a long, tall trunk.

I've been enjoying listening to my audio books ... "The Cat who ... "  blew the whistle, went underground, who brought down the house, talked turkey, had 60 whiskers, and on it goes ....  love the series by Lilian Jackson Braun about a 50 something retired journalist who lives in the woods and solves mysteries with help from his beloved Siamese cats who seem to have a weird sense when something is wrong.  Nothing nicer than snuggling up in bed with snow coming down (which it will be soon) and having someone read to you.  I love my little tablet ... its wonderful.  And I'm stacked up with audio books like the squirrels must be for the long winter coming.

I've also added new coupon codes for my Etsy Shoppe... so check those out if you are interested. Great bargains there and some pretty new things for Christmas.   I love these old advertisements as well....
