Emerson's TWO

It was a great day yesterday celebrating Emerson's (my great granddaughter) second birthday.  I loved that she was wearing a very fluffy tutu and so did she.  She twirled and enjoyed the ruffles and feeling so much like a little girl.  Turns out that I had given her a red one for her birthday.  So much fun.  This little girl is just a joy. 
I don't have a picture of her cake but it was as scrumptious as the tutu.  A dream of pink roses and a white bow in the shape of Minnie Mouse.          Blessings        Diane

Black and white challenge..............

 Just finished a photo challenge and I found it great to get me out of my sad rut.  The picture above is going into my back porch.   
 This gate is one of several that my neighbor just finished building along with a very artistic fence.

 I took a ride out in the country to see my friend and the weather turned stormy but it was beautiful.

 My daughter's dogs very interested in what's going on outside.
  Love these great creatures.  They have found some apples and are having a feast.

The creek bank near my home. Although it makes me sad because I always walked Rascal here, I  love this place.                Blessings,   Diane

First snowfall................

Not much, just a skiff.  But it won't be long before it will be deep.  The bags of cedar have been distributed, all the little odds and ends have been put away.  I'm still waiting for a warmer day so I can clean out my potting shed (not sure that's going to happen)  Basically I'm ready as I can get for winter.  So on to thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Winter really is such a nice time for the fact that you can be inside and think about inside things.  Hope you're well and getting tucked in at least in this part of the world.

Art always helps................

It's hard to say and many of you already know from facebook but I lost
my little Rascal last Friday.  He got very sick and I didn't want him to
suffer.  For 11 years he loved both Leonard and I and the last 2 years he
was my best friend.  It's so lonely without him.        Diane

Always thrilled............

Sometimes I walk by a window or open the curtains and the sun  just takes my breath away.  Like this morning.  The way it plays with the remaining leaves and makes shadows on some of the others and makes them all seem like they're opaque.  All this beauty........just for me. And I'm so grateful for digital cameras.  I can capture this and share it with you right then.

I hope you manage to find at least one thing to make your heart happy in these troubled times.

Fleeting color............

Fall brings such beautiful color - for such a short time
This shot is from my little corner garden which has yet to
be cleaned out.  
Our first hard frost was the night before and as I walked 
Rascal we were treated to leaf showers as the sun hit the
frozen leaves of some of the trees.  By evening some of
them were completely bare.

This is a season that you have to savor quickly.
