Well, how are you this lovely Sunday morning? The sky is brilliant blue in my neck of the woods. I couldn't resist pointing my humble, little camera up at the vast, endless beauty this morning!
See? I mentioned that our leaves aren't changing yet. This is our maple tree. She turns a stunning shade of gold when the frost is in the air. I'll make sure you get to see her transformation. Isn't she just lush and rich now? Don't you want to climb up and perch for a while?
These black-eyed susans have volunteered to spread some sunshine in random places. Speaking of random - yeah, this post WILL be.
Farmer Pom Pom's harvest! The first picked pumpkin, more zucchini and yellow squash, and another green pepper!
Poor pansies. They can't grab enough ground. The cosmos pushed them, shaded them, and the sprinklers pound them every day. Don't you wish you had a hat that looked just like this pretty posy?
Time for a little more blue!
Birdie and Miss Bug came by for dinner while their parents went on a little date. I hope Birdie is not distressed when she realizes she left her dolls behind.
After "junking" yesterday (those photos are coming - I'm building suspense!) I went to Jenny's house to see Samantha's "digs" and took a few shots of her happy home!
This dog baby ought to get ready for a tiny (and maybe rude) awakening when Samantha Rose comes! She rushed out to greet me and wanted me to carry her around her house. When she comes to our house, she won't even slow down long enough to let me hold her.
Don't you love Jenny and Scott's view? I grew up across the street from a golf course. Maybe that's why I always marvel at this landscape.
Now for the treasures. I found a book I had read long ago and probably given away. The Road from Coorain by Jill Ker Conway is a delicious read. It's about the bush country in Australia and tells a fascinating story. Jill Ker Conway went on to become the president of Smith College. It's a beautifully written, compelling memoir. Read it if you can get your hands on it.
Best book find! Look at this inscription from the grandma!
Whoever the recipient was, he is probably about thirty years old now!
The fun book:
I'll try another thrift shop next time. This one has lots of clothes and way too many Halloween costumes. I'll check back, however.
I stopped at the pumpkin patch and took this farmy photo. Sorry you can't see the pumpkins very well. This is right outside of busy Denver and I'm thankful for such glimpses of country, so close to home.
Today I must hunker down and prepare the mailing list for our eighth grade parent newsletter, put together the reading notebooks, plan a Shakespeare final assignment and create an assessment for West Side Story. Hmmmm. What about my bunting? Sigh. Oh well. I'll get to it. Thank you for your sweet visit today! Here's a little quote for you:
