Winter follows autumn....

Though I love autumn, and wish it lasted longer, I know that winter is on the way.  Even though I get tired of the cold, I so love winter wonderlands.  Ran across this and some others that caught my eye.  I thought I might as well share it while it is still warm enough for us to think it looks good.  By the way, it is not converted to B&W....but you would never guess that, would you?
***********
Yesterday I kept the home fires burning....well, I had a fire going in the firepit for a big part of the afternoon.  I had so much stuff that it would have taken all of a couple days at least to get shredded.  Plus Roger had bits and pieces of wood that were just too small to do anything at all with, so I got them burned up, too. 

Normally, we save them for having a fire outside at night, but we just had not got to do that but a time or two this year, so I got rid of them for him since his barrel for those was overflowing.  Even though it was something that needed to be done, I enjoyed having the fire. 

I don't know what it is about a fire, but I think almost everyone enjoys having a bonfire.  Some might think I am close to being a pyromanic, but I'm not.  It is just that a fire burning takes me back to childhood in so many ways....

We just bought a new tractor with snow thrower so we can't wait for snow to try out our new toy!
Sure can't beat an outdoor bonfire no matter the season nor reason!

Like they say on Game of Thrones, "Winter is coming."

Fire is so basic to being able to live in colder climates. I agree that most of us have had bon fires we remember
as enjoyable times. Nice post.
