My dear husband and I went out to lunch, the bank and then on up to Jonsrud Point in Sandy, Oregon to get a photo of the fresh new snow cover on Mt. Hood. I walk up to the viewpoint, pull out my camera, click the "On" button and nothing happens. Battery is dead. Sheesh! So, this pixelated image below done with my iPhone zoom with clouds in front of it is it. The battery is on the charger now!
I'm having a funky week. Both of us have a cold and luckily I had no appointments that I had to keep, and I've had to give up swimming.. ::sniffle:: ::whine:: Yesterday I put my little collection of pumpkin candle holders across the TV cabinet and Dayle lit them last night and the boys were fascinated by them.
They're all smallish.. big enough for tea lights. I need to buy some more tea light candles!
We picked up some fall toned flowers and I filled this ceramic pumpkin with water (it had green foam stuff in there from last year) and I stuck the flowers in.. and I got a new fall candle to light on the table. My son thinks that I have too much stuff on the table.. ::shrug:: But our mantel is in the living room which I can't see much of and we never use it so I don't decorate it for fall. So, all of my pumpkin stuff ends up here. :-)
My huge paper lantern pumpkin actually photographs better during the day.
I think I need to snip those flowers down a bit..
A walk outside, the hydrangeas continue to be a pleasing purple-y gray.
Yes, that is more blue sky today. But tomorrow the rain is supposed to return.
I turned and noticed the sun illuminating my creepy ghost bride... eek!
Don't tell the begonias.. that it's fall.. they don't know yet.
Oh, I'm so pink!
The back deck and a corner of the garden shed. That is going to be a project of mine someday. :-)
Our son, whose family lives with us, informed us last night that his wife's family has rented a room at a beach hotel for them all for Tuesday through Friday - over Christmas. :-( They are also going to her family's house for Thanksgiving. So, our traditional family dinner would be small, then our older son asked us to go to their new house for Thanksgiving.. a gluten free dinner. :-) Hmmm.. ok.. I guess we'll try something new!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
