After two days in the library (which I thoroughly enjoyed) I spent much of today enjoying some of our glorious late fall weather here on the Coast, which has done wonders for our grass:
It was sunny and about 8º C, so I put on my work clothes and went out to haul pruned branches and assorted deadfall from various areas around the house:
Of course, I managed to get distracted by the sun and the scenery, and took this cool b/w photo:
I love playing with the black and white setting on my camera and have considered getting Digital SLR camera at some point - it will give me more flexibility and allow me to get even more artistic with my photos.
By the end of the afternoon, I'd achieved more than enough for one day:
Yes, I could've been indoors writing, but the weather just couldn't be ignored. The rain starts again tomorrow, leaving me with ample opportunity to add to my NaNo word count. Plot points have been flitting through my head, so I know the story is still percolating there. By tomorrow it will be ready to move from my head to the computer.
After I finished my work, I went for a walk to get the mail. Along the way I took another arty shot:
followed by one of the hill down which I walk and the mountain in the distance:
It sure felt good to light a fire and relax with my book, a sandwich for dinner (Sean was out at work) and a glass of wine.
How about you? Do you enjoy outdoor work - even the kind that makes you ache the next day?
