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....
