It's that time of year again! 
Did the annual
change the clocks back from Daylight Savings time on Saturday night.
At the same time,
I also did the annual "changing of the batteries" -
smoke detectors, you know.
Then there's the annual 
rearranging of quilts...
refolding all the stored ones and
changing the main wall hanging quilt.
(Is refolding quilts on your annual list or is it just me?)

Then there's the annual
clean-up outdoors...
flower beds, leaf raking, sticks to the burn pile...
Because of high winds on Halloween again this year,
we had anther large tree down
(in the last picture you can see the freshly cut and stacked wood) 
a WHOLE LOT'o sticks on the burn pile!
But it made for a great bonfire for our

Annual Chili Cook off & Bonfire!

We started the Chili Cook Off "taste testing" 
and it started to rain - but only for about half an hour.
We stuck it out, though and it ended up being
a beautiful night for a bonfire!
Six Chili cauldrons this year -
and the winner was...
Green chilies Chicken Chili
with fresh toppings of cilantro, avocado and lime.  YUM!

late afternoon -
 just getting set up and the fire started.
(See that newly-cut stack of wood?)

That was a whole lot of 'annuals'...
but sure fun. 
Might be time for a nap.
Or maybe some more stitching!!
