It was a beautiful day here in Alabama.  And, I actually got to spend the afternoon out in a large field with my dog (and other friends with their dogs).  We had a great time.  He's sleeping now, the sleep of a dog that ran and played until his heart was content.  Blue skies, 68 degrees, and a picnic with friends under some live oak trees.  A great day.

September 28, 2021 update:

It has been an unusually cold and winter-like September....
For much of the month we have already had several days of SNOW, and also some low temperatures into the teens(f)

This morning when I woke up it was 14 degrees(f) and only getting up to about 33 degrees(f) later today.

Before the cold September arrived I was able to go on some great hiking trips up into the hills.
The wildlife was in full attendance, we saw Wolves, Bears, Deer and Elk, Moose and more.
They will usually give Humans a wide berth unless you surprise them with your presence, not a big problem in wide open areas, but in the dense woods it is important to talk and make noise so they won't be surprised.

I took a group of my out of town friends hiking in a beautiful area....  there have been some "incidents" of fairly close calls with possibly dangerous wildlife so since I was leading the pack, I brought along my "protection" as shown in the attached photo.
   

I also got in a few fishing trips this last summer.
   

***NOTE:  I will be posting more beautiful pictures and comments later today on the following sub-forum:

The state of Alaska should hire you to run their tourism promotions.  You make it look so beautiful and sounds so fun.  Thanks.

Nice Alaskan accessorizing there, Danielle.  :D
Much has changed since I was last logged into your wonderful chronicals.  A movie of your life would be an incredible outreach to the world and encouragement to those of us in the same walk in this beautiful life.

OMG! and it's only October 6th.

Glad you love it, though.

High of 73F today which is typical this time of year....

You're an inspiration, Danielle.

Danielle, winter is coming quickly for you, for sun is getting low even at midday and later sun raises and settings. The days here are getting shorter, but warmer then normal about 90 F this weekend more normal 70's is predicted for next weekend. I love the reasons.

I've been seeing scary numbers of a covid surge in AK, is your locale OK for now? are most folks vaccinated?

I know the rate for the state as a whole is on the low side.

Stay safe! Glad you're enjoying the start of winter :-)

@Jessica Rose    @Dorit
Dear Jessica and Dorit:
Thank you for coming to my Blog thread..... 
...yes indeed, I love to cook and bake, and I love to share what I make with my friends.... 
and it is easier to make new friends when inviting acquaintances to lunch or to dinner at my home.   
I always try to not only invite people that I know well, but also I like to include new people as well.

Thank you for posting your reply comments... you are always welcome here on my Blog thread.
HUGS,
Danielle

It's  C-O-L-D  outside.   
Early this morning it was in the single digits  6 degrees (f) and
then tonight is is foretasted to be around 10 degrees (f) .... 

It has been snowing on and off all day long.... 
....here is a picture I took on my way home from attending church this morning... 
this is the road out of town a little less than 2 miles to my home... my driveway is just another quarter mile further down the road on the right.
                 
Stay warm everyone... winter is coming for you,
but here where I live winter has been here since mid-September.
HUGS and best wishes to you as you continue  in your journey.

When I see your pictures of snow in September and October, it's like those people in House Stark from Game of Thrones who kept going about saying, "Winter Is Coming."
