Creekside Pictures

Well, I showed pictures earlier of my walk to the grocery store along the creek, so I thought I would share pictures of the creek up the other way. This is the small weir near my place.
Close to the weir.

One Tree Holding On

While most of the trees here have given up their leaves, this little guy is holding on still. I thought this was a really nice display of the fall colours all on one tree.
I'm not exactly sure what type of tree this is. I would guess an Oak tree but I thought their leaves were rounder? 
Well, if you know for sure what type of tree it is, please let me know. thanks.

DIY Christmas Pine Cones

I went hunting around for mini pine cones to decorate for Christmas because I have a mini Christmas tree and thought I'd like to make some ornaments for it. I found these two tiny ones down by the creek next to my place.
I found green and red glitter nail polish to paint the pine cones.
I started by painting the outside of the cones, doing a little bit at a time to allow it dry before being handled.
And here we are all done with two coats of polish where needed. I found this really easy to do and plan to go hunting for some more pine cones, to do some with silver and gold and maybe more glitter colours.

Predicting Snowfall

I have been told that the amount of orange berries on the Mountain Ash trees indicates how much snow there will be in the upcoming winter. I was told this method is used by the First Nations.
It seems to me that there are fewer berries this year, than there were last year when I first heard of this, so I will have to see how much snow we get and compare. Last year, unfortunately we got a lot of rain, which quickly turns to ice here.

November's Avocado

It's another update on my avocado tree. Poor thing, I didn't realize it was crooked in the planter I keep it in, so it has grown a little lopsided. Well, this is a good example to remind you to rotate your tree so it'll grow straight! haha
So, it has gotten some more leaves, with more on the way and has grown to about 27 inches in height. Not bad for about 1/2 year's growth.

Game of Thrones Game

If you like the Game of Thrones books and/or TV series, then you might like this little game, too.This game is FREE to play, although you do have options to buy gold if you are into that sort of thing. The game is called Game of Thrones Ascent:

http://armorgames.com/game-of-thrones-ascent-game/15691

I just started playing about a week ago and it's pretty good. It's a game you can leave running in the background while you do other things because the Raven's call will let you know when your current projects are done. You can then head back into the game to update it.

I play this through Armor Games, but I think it is also available through Facebook. The random name generator is fun and comes up with some funny combinations. I chose Megga Humble for it's humour. If you decide to play, you can always add me as a friend. If you get into it and want to join an alliance, I belong to The Crabb Shack, run by Errok Crabb.

May I recommend that you build up your Counting House as quickly as possible. Money is important, as always. haha

Happy gaming.

Romantic Scented Room

Scent your room with your favourite perfume/cologne simply using the warmth of a light bulb.

Make sure the lightbulb in the room you want to scent is completely cold. This means your lightbulb must be off and cold to the touch, otherwise this gets dangerous as your lightbulb will explode.
Simply spray a little of the perfume onto the lightbulb or drop a couple of drops onto the top of it. Let it dry for a few minutes and then turn your light on. The warmth from the lightbulb will heat the perfume/cologne and scent your room. No need to buy any plug-ins anymore. Just please be really careful that your lightbulb is cold before you add the scent.
