Tokens of appreciation for being a customer of a company usually comes in a form of a calendar.  But this one is a great gift to receive.  I am showing the back side as I don't want to give the company free advertising.  The small door is a clean out door for the old nests.  The house itself is made of flimsy wood but the roof looks like it can survive a hail storm.

The ladders got a workout yesterday as I installed eave troughs on my porch.  I had replaced the facing boards early in the summer ut never got the trough back up.  We had a warmer day so that I could get out to do that.  My neighbor had caught his small shed on fire by burning leaves too close to it; so I had firetrucks and traffic driving around everywhere while I was working.

They did get the shed fire put out but it took a long time.  It was a heavy barn-like shed with lots of dimensional lumber in it.  More solid forms of wood makes a more solid source of wood to burn.  The guy has a habit of throwing gasoline on leaves to get fires going.

My plan is to leave the garden angel outside this winter for the first part of it.  I like seeing the snow build up in its container and on her form.  I really am not wanting snow to come yet but I do know that I don't get to pick and chose.

Our Arlington Heights kids left on Saturday to return home.  We had a good visit, eating out for brunch on the last day before they headed home.  The two boys are really growing up fast and by Christmas I am sure they will make many changes. Today should be a good day for rest.  I hope everyone has a good day today.  Thank you for checking in on my post today.

Nice Birdhouse! Too bad about the fire, some people just don't take the time to be safe about it. Yes the snow will come, ours is melting:)
