Thanksgiving Wishes




 

   I am thankful that hubby and I are relatively healthy this year, that we have the blessings of a roof over our heads and running heat to keep us warm. Thankful for the humble meal we will share together.
Although are sons and their families are to far away for us to visit, we are thankful they are happy, healthy and always have our love.

What are you thankful for this year?

The Great Pumpkin Hunt!





  I have seen the fields and yards full of pumpkins,
    not to long ago.
Little kids and adults alike scurrying to and fro searching for the special gourd. A few brave Jack-O-Lanterns are still in view. Some just laying around sunning themselves in the sparse autumn sunshine, others trying hard to cling to the vine or hide behind dried crumpled foliage. The great pumpkin hunt has been going on for weeks and is slowing down as Halloween approaches.

Listen .. (okay, view really, LOL)
    to this frightening pumpkin tale below ...

hunted down in their prime and loaded onto carts


some divided from their pack and caged 
like the wild beasts they really are!

Is it too late for you?


Well there is always next year ...





 Until next time ...

Wombat Day 2014 !



It is here!
The tenth anniversary of Wombat Day! October 22, 2014.
So follow me and celebrate!


Who wants a big slice of chocolate cake and some winegums?


Lets stop over by Peter's " Wombania " site where all the wombies will be dressed in their party best. Where there will be lots and lots of chocolates of all kinds, winegums galore and more goodies than you can count!


I am heading over now, as I can never get my fill of delicious chocolate, YUM!
Those funny, playful wombies can eat fast, but are willing to share.




See you there ...



Until next time ...

HALLOWEEN in the Ladies Room ~





   The Ladies Room ~
     {overheard, laughs and snickers} Halloween edition

It is that spooky time of year,
when ghouls and goblins appear.
They haunt houses looking for treats and threaten tricks.
So what happens after they eat their fill???
Well, they head to the ladies (or gobbly-mens) room ☺

   






Ready for some naughty treats???



I don't have to worry about my "lead" foot with this beauty

Maxine [©Hallmark] always know the right thing to say


perfect costumes for this subject {winks}


The best one for us curvy ladies...


Keep the treats at the doorway in-case someone comes calling (chocolate is my favorite, what is yours??)





Are you ready for Halloween?
(Only sweet treats means no tricks)

Falling grape vines on a spooky tree





Chill is in the air,
cold nights paint colors on the leaves,
frost will soon kiss the pumpkins,
As autumn falls away ~
(Faythe M. Anstedt - 2014)

  My grape vine and hops  covered  spooky tree is starting to dress its last finest before going into winters slumber.
Shall we gaze upon harvests call of color changes?



let your eyes climb up from greens to reds and yellows

dangling dazzling reds adorn the top of the spooky tree


wild grapes await a nibble amongst some just turning grape vine leaves


red and gold grape vines pull away the bark of the spooky tree
look close and you can see the tiny roots left on the tree itself 

We have had a few sunny fall days surrounded by mostly cold, wet and gray signs of winters dregs soon to come. The nips of chill has slowly been changing the greens of summer into the glorious colors of autumn before they fall into masses on the ground.

How has your weather been treating you?






Until next time ...
