Last night we had our first freeze.
This was at 8 AM.

It's time to dig out the sweaters...

(It doesn't matter to Mollie that we lost).

The long pants....I didn't put my knee lengths away though.

and the mittens.

The ball field has been busy all weekend.

This was shortly after 8AM on Sunday.

Some of the cars had out of state license plates.
I guess it's a traveling softball league.

Mollie was busy checking the downspouts for "Chippies".

The squirrels were busy foraging for the last of the acorns.

The last of the frost.

The Dogwoods are beautiful just now.

I turned my heat on this AM 
but we are promised more 70's later this week.
Have a happy week.

Heat on here too although we are now back into a bit of a "warming trend!"
I have my gloves handy each morning . . .
These are quite the mitts for you Missy!

We have had two frosty mornings that required the fireplace be turned on. Hope this is not a sign of a VERY cold winter to come. Last winter was such a mess with all that snow coming at once. A little here and a little there is more to our liking. Love your mittens!
