Family Friday

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

This little pumpkin turned 2!


Saturday night Joe and I went out to dinner to celebrate the birthday of a very old friend.

Joe's known him for over 50 years!

It was great to see people we hadn't seen in such a long time. 


 Bittersweet grows along the grassy dunes across the street

I gathered some to add to the basket on our front door. 

It's so pretty.

I love this time of year. 


Wednesday evening there was a workshop at work that I was attending. I get out at 3:30

but it didn't start till 6:30 so I went out exploring around Beacon Hill.

It's one of my very favorite places...especially in the fall and early winter.


One of my favorite parts of the week was being able to get a picture of

both of my daughters and my grandson and me!

We are all so very busy it's not often we all get together and remember to take a picture.

Please feel free to add a link to your family friday post.

Still round the corner there may wait

a new road or a secret gate.


There's hardly a more tempting adventure than an October wood.

mid October

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

mid-October is time for bringing the plants in.

I've settled them in next to the credenza in the dining room

after their wild adventures on the porch.

Night time temperatures will be dipping down close to frost this week.


Yesterday I turned up the heat just a bit to ward off the chill...

Sat at my desk in the sunny window with coffee and biscotti -

watched a Sunday morning coming down


It's this little pumpkin's second birthday already!

He sang Happy birthday to all of his friends

and when we were done singing to him he stood right up and said,

"Let's sing it again!"
