walnuts.........

...........yesterday was a productive day.....not that everyday needs to be productive, but I feel a bit better if I think I accomplished something......I got up just a little later than normal and enjoyed a quiet cup of coffee and the computer.......normally, I would be dressed and doing something !!!  but, when the sun got to shinning, I thought, enough wasting this day !!! I almost hurried and  got dressed, made the bed, straightened out upstairs and proceeded to the basement and straightened out my storage room......done a load of laundry.......fixed some lunch.......made a pumpkin cake, which was awesome....then took a walk to gather black walnuts.......I think gathering the walnuts was the best part.......the weather was beautiful and the leaves are quickly turning......when I got to my walnut tree, a squirrel was busy gathering him some walnuts too.....I almost felt guilty taking some of his food !!!!  but there are plenty more trees......I even have a walnut tree in our front yard and my husband gathers the walnuts for the squirrel and puts them in a pile for him at the base of the tree !!! the walnuts look so pretty in an old wood bowl.....I found some corn cobs that a raccoon enjoyed too.....so, all of us....animals and I, get to enjoy what mother nature gives us.........till next time....smiles, Linda

  1. Morning Linda - your day sounded much like mine did on Wednesday.
    We have been gathering black walnuts as well but ours are still in the shell - how in the world do you find them all nice and husked! Don't the squirrels get to them?
    Have a wonderful day

  6. That's so cute that you share with the animals, I love that. Growing up on the farm, we had lots of black walnuts on our property. All the kids had to pick them Then we took them down the road to an old country store where they weighed them and paid us for it... funny thing... I don't remember getting paid for picking, haha! Good memories, thanks for sharing your story. To this day, black walnuts are still my favorite nut.

    Your bowl of naturals is perfect for fall, love it!
