It's arrived in full force now. The leaves are falling thickly and fast, and there's a distinct chill in the air for sure. The boys had to wear toques to school today! Well, the two younger ones who haven't decided that being cold is cool anyway. I like fall, with it's brilliant colours and cooler temperatures, but I don't like thinking about what comes next~ winter.

The maple trees in our yard provide us with a lovely carpet of red, orange, yellow and brown to rake up, jump in and then burn or compost. Well, last year there were far too many to compost, so we burned a few bags. I love the smell of the burning leaves. It just makes me feel like making a big pot of chili and some homemade bread!
Wally likes to chase the leaves, roll in them, and bark at them too. Well, ok, he'll bark at almost anything hahaha. He really needs a haircut but I am not sure if I should this close to winter!
and one final picture of the three guys and the pup off to the bus stop.
