I've been adding to my pile of leaves for my new Leaf Peeper quilt.
Now this is a pile of leaves that I wouldn't mind raking! The fabric is October Morning by Kim Diehl for Henry Glass & Co.
Yet again, another visitor during dinner. The bear walked up out of the woods and into our yard yesterday. This is the second time this week we've been visited by a bear. It was not afraid of us at all, but it didn't enjoy hearing Mazey's barking.
This bear is much darker than our usual cinnamon-colored bear. Not 20 minutes before this one arrived, Mr. Joe and I were discussing the fact that there are so many vacationers, the bears have probably headed up to the high country. We were both wrong.
Now if he or she had moved over two feet into the sunlight, this would have been a great picture. After it headed back into the woods, it circled around and came back five minutes later.
As I sit here and write this post, three deer just strolled by. Two out of the three were sporting quite a rack on them. There are times when I feel as though we live in a game reserve. We are always on the lookout for something with fur or hair moving across the lot. We aren't afraid, but we are cautious.
Maybe I'll just stay indoors today and make more leaves.
