Hello my friends, I do hope you're having a lovely day. Dayle is working on getting his truck ready to haul our trailer to the beach for a week - to celebrate his birthday. I am resting up.. I had a busy day yesterday preparing for my last board meeting as president of the Friends of Multnomah Falls. After 4 years I'm passing the baton onto the Vice President. I'll remain on the board, do the newsletter, website and will be Events Chair. I have one last duty as president, to run the Annual Meeting and elections. Then.. no more being in charge of the agendas for me, baby! :-) Today I grabbed my camera to see what I could find... I always love to take photos of our pretty barn.
But before I went outside I snapped a few images of my little bouquet of flowers on the dining room table.
Don't you love the juicy lime green center of this flower?
You can't beat Chrysanthemum, can you?
Stepping out in the chilly fresh air..
The huge chrysanthemum Dayle surprised me with got a bit dried up during our latest hot spell, but some of the buds are opening now..
My peachy pink pumpkin is doing well in the cooler temps.
Heading back into the cozy farmhouse, I spy my 2 gnomes in a pile of oak leaves right by the door.
I snapped a photo of the top of the apple tree and had NO idea there was a bird up there!
I spied a couple of pin oak acorns on the deck.. why do I adore acorns?
Our older son, Shawn and his wife Beth, invited us over on Sunday. They are all moved in their new home and I just *LOVE* it! The landscaping is so pretty. They have a 2 car garage and a super tall and long RV garage. My clever son had those tall commercial grade garage doors installed at the front and BACK of his RV garage so he can back his quad trailer (all terrain vehicles) on into a fenced off area in the back yard and his huge 5th wheel RV/toy hauler inside the big garage.
Their big open kitchen is a dream.. granite counters, well-lit, gas stove, wet bar on the left, a big pantry in the corner, and the other corner a nice sink with windows.. they made crock pot chili and gluten free cornbread. It was funny as they were out of milk so used vanilla almond milk to make the cornbread.. I was a bit skeptical... but it was delicious!
The comfortable living room.. gas fireplace.. I got comfy and crocheted on my red alpaca/silk shawl while we chatted. What a wonderful new home! Isn't the wood floor pretty? It's Acacia wood. It has lots of character.
From my comfy chair I zoomed out the window at their neighbors brightly colored Sweet Gum tree. Wow!
