I really thought this fall wouldn't have the colors as years past. It seemed everything turned so quickly, like just a week ago. The colors are amazing. I heard on the radio that because of the cooler temps that it is more colorful this year. It may only last a couple of week's but it really is breathtaking. I tried getting pictures but today was dark and rainy and they just didn't turn out well.
I saw this dog and thought he was a statue. He stayed in this position the whole time I was taking his picture. Isn't he handsome.
Here it looks like most of the leaves have fallen, but they haven't.
We have mostly pines and spruce trees but this is our backyard.
My favorite road in the fall. Wish the picture was better.
I tore down the fairy gardens. These little goodies were a birthday gift. See the witches legs.
Most of my plants have seen better days. It's too cold now for them to grow. The chair, little bench and plant stand were all "finds".
I have been hearing a lot about Christmas lately. Geez, it is getting closer. I sure would love to hear ideas on homemade gift ideas.
Our Hobby Lobby took over our Michaels' store. It has doubled in size. Neither store was ever very busy, but you should have seen the people there today. I miss Michaels'. The new HL was nice but pretty much the same as the other one.
I imagine most of you are following the Ebola crisis. It is scary. I think we will know in a couple of weeks how contagious it is. If no more cases come up or if those exposed come down with it. I can't believe how many were exposed when the nurse flew from Texas to Ohio and then back again. So far all you hear about is Ohio and Texas. Yep, I am from Ohio. Then when I heard about the guy on the cruise ship. Are you kidding me. That would spread it all over the world. I was just looking online for tickets to go see our family in Colorado at Christmas. I'm holding off booking til we know more.
Well, I think I will start my Christmas list........only kidding.
