The view out of the home office window shows how the city maimed the giant tree. I suppose its topheaviness made it a wise move, but I bet that really hurt. It gives us much more light in the late afternoon since the sun sets behind it. Before, it totally blocked the light. Also in the foreground you see the sumac turning colors. The seedy cones it produces feed the starlings well into the winter. Oh and speaking of winter, the new forecast came out and though temperature wise it's supposed to be milder than normal, snowfall wise it's supposed to be a humdinger. This is from the accuweather Canadian blog:
Sigh, we are in the "very snowy" purple stuff. Maybe it's time to buy the real snow plow. I hate to part with $600 to avoid some good exercise, but then again, shoveling induces heart attacks. Georgie will be in heaven though. He's definitely not a summer dog and doesn't do well in the heat. And he loves to bite the snow so we should have some fun with that. Guess we need a Georgie pic since we're talking about him.
He hasn't been happy for a couple of days due to all the rain we've had. Over three inches. Yesterday we got soaked on the morning walk. Silly me thinking the storm had finished. Of course we got to the furthest point on our trajectory when the sky opened up and dumped buckets on us. Then he smelled like DOG so bad, Serge had to give him a bath. He smells all perfumed now and his fur is all smooth and silky.
Today I've got to do some chores and then we are having a little dinner party. I'm going to make paella again, which will make my second attempt. I hope it's as good as the first time. I'll take pics as usual. Y'all have a lovely weekend!
