Where has the time gone?


Here it is almost the middle of October.  Weather has continued to be warmer than normal. Even with that I have been doing some decorating  for  Autumn .... Halloween.  This fellow   adds a welcome on the front porch after I put away   summer chairs and table....
Then inside pulled out my Dickens Village to   dress   mantel. for  Halloween.

Small  touches  but   since I had planned a  vacation for a week   needed to get   this done.  I like to leave the  Village out until  March  changing items  for Christmas as well.   
So the first week of October  I  climbed aboard a tour bus ..heading to Sault Ste Marie.
On to   Agawa Canyon Train to take in the gorgeous Autumn colours   of  northern Ontario.
 Gorgeous   60 %  colour on the hills
It was cloudy for part of the day and then the sun came out  the colours were dazzling.
