Living in Minnesota on the Mississippi River

November 2, 2015
El Nino is here this year and it has been unseasonably warm.  Right now it is 66 degrees.  My husband just got done mowing the lawn and it is November 2nd.  People are still wearing shorts when we should be wearing our winter clothing.  We have had a very dry Autumn which means the ducks most likely will not fly this way from Canada.  If the weather doesn't cooperate the ducks may not leave Canada!!
Even though the weather hasn't cooperated the season is still upon us.  We just got done with Halloween and now we are moving into Thanksgiving.  The craft shows are in full swing for our Christmas shopping pleasure.  This is one of my favorite seasons Autumn into Winter.
I cleaned the windows yesterday and took out all the screens.  Without the screens in the windows the house is so much brighter and sunnier.
Went for a walk this morning with the dogs.  All the yards are decorated with pumpkins and Halloween leftovers.  I decorated the deck and turned on Halloween music outside to draw the kids in for treats.  My Halloween is all cleaned up!  The squirrels ate my pumpkins!
I have a bird feeder right outside my door.  The squirrels think it is a squirrel feeder.  I am in the process of war with the squirrels.  I think the squirrels are winning!
