November 19, 2012 Finishing old, on to new!

I was up bright and early this morning....I had mentioned earlier.."before breakfast."  However, I am always up and out for a walk before, wrong terminology.  I was in the pickup with Toby and on the road, in the dark, to drive 10 miles to a beach I have never been on for sunrise.  That means, get there early so as to get in place for the sunrise, because you don't know where it is going to come up.  We made it in plenty of time and got some nice shots.  Sky wasn't over all spectacular this morning.  The early sunrise was subtle.  Then it got bold and beautiful just in the vicinity of the sun.  It was too clear for major sky color up.  It was definitely worth going for.  May have to try this spot again sometime, in fact, I was so impressed. 
Here is an early morning photo of Toby, waiting with me for things to happen.  It was pretty frosty out there this morning so that added another dimension to the photos too.  Plus, there was an old rotten fish laying on the beach that Toby thought smelled just great and had to roll on both directions.  Luckily, he didn't get too stinky.  Thank heavens for cold weather.  :)
Here is another of the subtle color photos after the sun got up a bit.  It was just so pretty out there.  I was on that stretch of beach for an hour this morning and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.  Of course, once I got home, it was back to work. 
When I got home, I made breakfast and then we got to finishing up with the venison.  I got it all vacuum sealed as my husband got it cut up.  Then, I left him to the kitchen for the day.  He proceeded to can all the scraps for dog food.  Canning in the pressure cooker takes a while.  Anyway, that is mostly done now too.  I think he has one more batch of dog goodies to do in the  morning. 
I, on the other hand, spent a goodly amount of time in the basement today....working on photos and such for the Hovland Arts Festival holiday sale which is on Saturday, November 24th.  It rained during that time too, so all the more reason to be busy doing computer work.  No bright cross lights to distract me or make it hard to see the computer screen.  Only a deer, or two, to put their noses against the window and watch what I am doing.  Shadow had that job today.  A couple of days ago Fancy's Girl did that.  I couldn't believe how long she stood there and watched me print photos.  Funny!
On another note.....all my girls and their families made it through deer season!  Yay!
On one other note, when I took Toby for his afternoon hike, the wolves were howling in the vicinity of Hellacious Overlook on the Superior Hiking Trail.  Maybe.....celebrating end of hunting season! 
This is the first time in many years I didn't have a wolf howl, or see one or more, during deer season.
I leave you with a "golden moment" from this mornings' photo expedition.  Enjoy.
