Picking Pumpkins

We went over the weekend to get our pumpkins. It was kind of a perfect day for it. Even though the kids are in their teens, they both still love doing this, which makes me incredibly happy. Hell, I’m in my 40’s and I STILL love doing this. Sadly, I have zero clue what I’m carving this year.

It is going to be an insane next couple of weeks as Hubby’s annual bake sale is coming up, so I’ll be baking for that. The kids have things going on. I have a B-Day dinner to fix and then we have to carve those pumpkins followed by Halloween. Oh, and those edits are supposed to show up at any time. So, yeah, bring on the crazy times!

Fall?

I think we skipped it. We have already had a measurable snow. Not a ton, but measurable. We are also stupidly cold for being in the middle of October, including already having freeze warnings. But hey! I get to really test out the new furnace. I just hope it doesn’t completely kill off my mums that are JUST starting to bloom.

Waterlogged

I love taking pictures of things that have been drenched in rain because water does such cool stuff when it forms drops. That said, I could really do without the 6+ inches of rain we’ve had over the last few days. I could absolutely do without the storms still coming that will be bringing more of the same over the next couple of days.

Strung Water Drops

Going through all the photos I took yesterday, I realized that I had so many that I loved, I could spend weeks posting a single image a day. I’ve decided to post them all together instead of one at a time. They are far from perfect, but there are things about each one that I really love. Some are the color, some are the intricacies of the web itself, others are because of the detailing or effects of the water drops. These are my favorites, for whatever reason.

Goodbye 2017

Wishing everyone a peaceful and happy new year! I’ll leave you with some of my favorites from this year.
