Bad hair day

But a gorgeous day for walking in the meadow.  Temperatures are headed for 80 -- no fooling!  Last great day of summer in late fall.  Tomorrow will be below normal with a high of 43 -- yes, you are in Michigan!

The shades of autumn

Michigan is beautiful these days and very happy about the Tigers! 
The weather is inconstant from warm to cold, from sun to rain.  Even cloudy days can still be cheerful because of the wonderful colors of the trees.

It is hardly even week by week......

And we are even going back a few weeks to pick up on this wonderful creature whom my Facebook friends helped me to identify back on September 3 as a Humming Bird Moth.  Thanks to Jen we also know its formal name "Hemaris thysbe."  When I first saw it, I wondered if it was a mutant humming bird.  Not a mutant but a moth it is and quite spectacular with its whirring wings.

I write this as the cold rain continues in SW Michigan, but because of the Tigers Detroit is feeling sunny.

Perhaps we should call this week by week in Fabius

It has been two weeks since we left the Up and already my memory of the lake is getting fuzzy. This was our first sunrise at Shelter Bay on September 9.

Still quite vivid is the sunrise on the Saturday we left Shelter Bay and headed for an overnight at Sleeping Bear Dunes in the lower peninsula.

On this October 1, I am vowing to post from Fabius at least once a week.  Wish me good luck!  Glad to be back in a blogging mood and hope you are happy to see something new finally.
