October is usually my favorite month. But this year? Not so much. We only had four or five days of sunshine to light up the golden leaves. I welcomed the rains at first but the gloomy skies got old really quick. A couple of days ago, we were about to break the record for the… Continue reading Friday Ramble
Sadly, there is only one baby squirrel left. It seems they came out of their nest too early this year and were just too vulnerable to predators. (Don’t ask me how I know – I don’t want to think about what I saw!) On the positive side, the one that’s left seems to be a… Continue reading Friday Ramble
I enjoyed last Friday’s ramble so much I decided to do it again! It’s nearly 11:00 in the morning. The sun has been up for over four hours but you wouldn’t know it by looking out the window. It’s very dark today and raining pretty hard. It feels like the seasonal switch has flipped to… Continue reading Another Friday Ramble
What a month! It started off so good. Don and I had just paid off the last of our debt (except for the house) and were ready to start the next baby step in the Total Money Makeover plan. Then, November happened! We broke the rules of the plan and bought new carpet because Smarty was… Continue reading November Moments

When the morning sun hits them, they glow like the tree is radiating its own inner light. I’ve been out with camera several times trying to capture the glory of this tree but it’s difficult with… Continue reading Laceleaf Light
Wednesday morning, after many, many days of dark, gloomy skies and rain, the sun finally came out. I knew it wouldn’t last long so I grabbed my camera, jumped in the car and drove away, leaving responsibility and all those pesky should-do things behind. I first went to Buffalo Park in Mill Creek, which I found… Continue reading Colors of November
Today I’ve got meal planning and grocery shopping ahead of me and I’m not feeling up to the task. My sinuses are not happy about the sudden onset of the rainy season and my body is feeling extra tender and achy. I feel pretty much like this llama/alpaca creature looks, only my ouchies are on… Continue reading Monday. November. Blah.
Even though I am too late for Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge theme of simplicity, I thought I would share the few photos I took for the challenge and my struggle to find/create photo composition with simplicity. The goal was to take 4-6 photos with the photo subject taking up only about 1/4 of the composition… Continue reading The Search for Simplicity
This handsome tabby posed for me when I was out taking photos of leaves. I must be losing my Pied Piper effect on cats because it didn’t come out to greet me.
Since I can’t get my brain organized enough to put a post together, I’m going to share some of my fall photos, just one at a time to bring little glimpses of fall into the reader. Enjoy! 🙂
