I guess you could say that the pretty part of fall is winding down – there are a LOT of leaves on the ground now – but as you’ll see, there are still a lot of gorgeous trees out there. It was really warm this week – in the 70s a few days – but now we’re back to more seasonably cool & rainy days. I’m starting to feel slightly nest-ish. Why, I might even vacuum the floors this weekend!

Dr. M’s school is trying to make homecoming more of a celebration by having people come early & “tailgate” (no actual tailgates were involved – we had a tent). His college decided to do NC barbecue – pulled pork, homemade sauces, coleslaw (you saw that in last week’s post) & baked beans. I do believe we were a hit – certainly the best smelling tent around! Here is his colleague who smoked the pork – he is a most excellent cook!
The committee in charge of the tailgating thought they’d be cute – it’s supposed to be the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences – ha!
There was a zip line – the college mascot decided to participate.
On our way home we took the scenic route. It was almost like we were saturated with gorgeousity – too much appreciation going on to take pictures. But we got a couple.
When we got home the roofers were putting the finishing touches on the roof – we timed it just right!

Everybody gets a bath on Sunday whether they need it or not!
When I got home from church I saw this blowing in the breeze on the garage roof. Apparently the workers took the warning seriously!

Dr. M saw some critters on his way home from school. Imagine that!
Flower hanging on.
We voted after work. It’s kind of cool to live in a state where our vote really does count! Now, let’s just hope our people win. Heh.

Today is all about lovely autumn. I especially love the picture Dr. M took with the trees reflected in the water. Dr. M posted more pictures of this day here.

Leaves on a sidewalk.
I don’t know why inflatables make me smile so much – these ones are definitely contagious!
The Tax Time Pig is under that sheet somewhere!
I’ve made a bluemillion of those pink & yellow dishcloths (bought two giant skeins of the yarn for cheap), so today I decided to get some new colors. My stack is getting taller!

More pretty trees.
I saw this truck on my way home.

Pinky in the rain…
The State of the Bug. My bangs are out of control! They have a life of their own & I might have to trim them just a bit to show them who’s boss. But I’m still going to try to grow them out.
Dr. M made a peanut butter chocolate chip pound cake for the benefit I talk about here. We didn’t get to eat any cake, but I got to lick the bowl – yum!
Go to Sara’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
