Dorothy, I thought we had resolved the raccoon feeding tendency in this neighbor a few years ago, but apparently not. And there are nutria pushing closer to our part of the creek.

Today we've had several hours of gentle rain - and it's into the cold time of year. Flip the switch and it's suddenly not summer, and we only get a week or two of autumn weather. It was nice to take a nap in the recliner in the sun room, dog tucked in beside me and listening to the rain outside the window.

Poking around the framed art and mirrors at Goodwill yesterday I was surprised at how many lovely large mirrors, most of them the large wall-mounted variety. In housewares found a lovely little 9" long Sheffield silver on copper plater with a little 3-part embossed seal. I can't find what the company or date is, but it might bring a few dollars on eBay. At Goodwill it cost .89.

I'm enjoying the large mirror I picked up to lean against the fireplace to hide the insulation-filled firebox. For exercise I practice dance steps in front of it while the dogs are eating.
