An old rusty trough and milk cans by an old shingled garage.
I thought I'd share some pictures of things I saw and did this past week. Nothing too exciting, except for the terrible thunderstorms we had.
I picked apples last Saturday morning. Paula Red.
There will be MacIntosh and Cortlands and Honeycrisp to pick soon, if it every stops raining.
Rocky Raccoon was taking a stroll across our lawn at 10:30 in the morning recently. Weird. He hid in the culvert.
A beautiful day along the river at a friend's house on Monday.
The blue hour with the moon setting just after the sun.
The days are much shorter.
The sunrise on Tuesday morning was gorgeous but the clouds rolled in and haven't left yet.
On Wednesday, my friend Lois and I went to The Country Pumpkin in Maugerville to buy some fresh local veggies. We were surprised to see that pumpkins are already piled up.
That is rain blowing sideways in the wild wind during a terrible thunderstorm on Wednesday at suppertime. There are rumours that a tornado was seen in the clouds over Fredericton and something similar did some serious damage in the town of Woodstock which is one hour away. Power was knocked out to thousands overnight due to trees being blown onto power lines.
The thunder rolled and the rain fell for 7 hours.
This photo was on the New Brunswick Facebook page of lightening over the city of Moncton. Awesome!
This photo was taken by Nick Bucknall and shared on the New Brunswick Facebook page. It's a very ominous cloud over the city of Fredericton as the storm was starting. It came on so fast. There was blue sky then this black wall of clouds with thunder and lightening and gale force winds.
I took this photo of this huge pine tree near us. It's right beside the road and a cemetery. The huge limb was struck and in turn took down the power line on Wednesday evening knocking out power for over 12 hours which didn't affect us, thankfully.
And, thankfully, none of the tombstones were damaged.
The tree will have to come down. It was a landmark in the area.
I made a small batch of Lady Ashburnham pickles on Thursday morning. They are our favourites.
Last night another big thunderstorm rolled through about 11:00. I had to shut down my computer as I was working on this post and go to bed. So here I am on Friday morning finishing it.
Tropical Storm Gabrielle is going to provide us with
much needed more rain today. And since it's a tropical storm it's still warm and very humid like it has been since Wednesday.
I'm off for a pedicure this morning. I'll be dashing through the raindrops and puddles trying to keep my feet dry afterward.
I don't 'paint' my toenails all winter. Do you? Mine are hidden in shoes and socks so I let them go and breathe for a few months. :)
So this post was just about some odds and ends, pictures I took this week, the weather. Nothing exciting like the Badlands and hoodoos. :)
I hope you have had a good week.
Any plans for the weekend?
Take care. Thanks for stopping by.
