Cairngorm autumn (Photo credit: GaggieITMI)
Schools back in full swing, the weathers changing outside. Enjoy a moment when your outside going to and from. The leaves are changing on the trees, Autumn is in full swing. It will soon be Halloween ! I’ve seen a few cool pumpkins on the porches. Make sure costumes are safe and warmly bundled underneath. Check the candy well. Then comes Thanksgiving and lots of Turkey! Don’t over stuff yourself, save a bit of room for the Christmas candy!
With all this eating and being indoors do to cold weather, we all tend to add a pound or two. Make it a habit to take a short walk each day. Even if it’s only around the block. A few minutes of exercise and fresh air, will do your body good.!
Play Bird bingo and see how many species actually stick around throughout the winter. Give yourself an observation challenge, see how many things take on great changes over the holidays. (Trees that drop their leaves vs trees that don’t) How many squirrels live in your neighborhood? (Remember to feed unsalted peanuts, the salt isn’t good for them) Suet cakes and bird feeders are greatly appreciated this time of year for those that remain during the cold months.
