Today I need to change the oil and filter in the generator and skid-steer. These are seasonal jobs that need to be done before winter arrives. 

I use synthetic oil and a lighter grade for easier winter starting.

This Saturday is Hazardous waste collection up here which means I can get rid of the oil and filters without having to safely store them for the winter.

Paul and Connie are visiting. They will be busy with Mary back in the bush clearing more brush for us.

In just a few weeks we expect to be seeing these beautiful mornings. The colours will be at their best in another two weeks. This photo was taken October 2/13

Thanks for the comment on yesterday's blog Don. Hope you like the above photo.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
