One Last Halloween Post

I was sad to put away these two Halloween Wax Candles.  My Mom bought them back in the 1970’s and they have survived these forty some years.  When I was a child I would love to find these two hiding in my Mom’s hutch at the top of the stairs.  I would get yelled at for playing with them.  I would love when she put them out in the living room for Halloween.  A joyful connection to my childhood.  I’m just thankful they are still with me after all of the moves and all of the years.

Autumn is in full gear right now with Winter knocking on it’s door.

I took these pictures when the leaves just started falling.

Now all the leaves are falling.  This was a good autumn for me 😉

Halloween Is Over

Last night my favorite Teenager came over to help hand out candy.  We had two whole Trick-or-Treaters this year.  Last year we had only one, lol.

This is me and the Mrs. in our 2018 Halloween picture.  It was kind of cool last night so she stayed inside.

Now that Halloween is over  I’m moving on to Autumnal Bliss.  They leaves should be at peak by next week.  These trees look mostly peak but I think one more week.  So I will have to make extra effort to get out and take my picture of Autumn in the next several days 🙂

Happy November!

 

Weekend Adventures

We went out on Saturday to the Bristol area.  Did some antique shopping and had some lunch.  While at lunch this little dude (behind me) had a meltdown.  Of course, I took a picture of it!  LOL.

I really liked my sandwich.  I ordered it solely for the fact it was called ‘The Godfather’.  It was most delicious!  Afterward, the wife took me to get some Jersey Tomatoes.  Which were also very delicious.  It was a very happy produce store…the wish everyone to have a Nice Day on the way out!  Winning!!!

On A Warm Day

I got outside at lunchtime today.  One of my favorite places to visit is Morris Arboretum.  There were quite a few people there today.  It is 50 degrees and that makes those who have been hibernating want to burst out of their caves.

The temps are going to continue to rise this weekend and I’m going to take full advantage of them!

I’m ready now for the warmer days.  Not to warm because I want it to be spring…not summer!

I’m just glad we aren’t getting that snow that is hitting the Midwest today and tomorrow!

Spring – It’s For The Birds

I love April.  It’s the best time to bird watch.  I’m not particularly into Ornithology but I love the colors of the birds.  All of the colors of the birds shine out in contrast to the browns and grays of winter.


I’m going back to this location next week to see what other birds are in town.  Ahhhhhh…..SPRING!
