A Full Morning

Yesterday was a cool autumn day just bursting with adventure.
We rose at daybreak and tended to the usual Monday morning chores...
feeding animals, washing sheets and hanging them on the line,
doing the rest of the laundry.

We gathered the dogs together and took off for the creek,


in search of more flagstones for the path to Maven Haven.
Anything at all out of the ordinary is an adventure for the dogs.


They love to roam and follow their noses.


The creek is not their typical area to roam...
so visiting this space is an extra-special treat.


While the dogs explored the entire area,
I took note of the wildflowers blooming.
Touch-me-nots...


Asters...


False sunflowers...


White turtlehead...


And ironweed...


Tree burls always fascinate me...
I would love to see the inside of this beauty...


The creek is as low as I have ever seen it after the dry summer
that we experienced.

It's quite easy to navigate by foot...
and perfect for spotting just the right stones.


After about ten minutes of searching,
Hubbs had loaded 10 large, flat stones in the back of the gator...
enough to finish the walkway.
We transported them back to the shed and put them in place.


I love the rambling look to this curvy pathway.
Magical!
