Fall color is finally starting to pop around here. It makes my work commute all that much more pleasant. This past week I could see the trees on my way home, but next week I’ll be ogling them on my way to work.

Our miniature rose is still blooming!
I got a daisy barrette to go with Daisy the Bicycle & Daisy the Car. This is from Lilla Rose – the design of their barrettes means that they stay put even in my slippery hair. Love them!

Ordered some new readers today. I decided to get “occupational lenses” – they’re progressive lenses for looking at my computer screen & reading. I had to laugh – either the sales person was very astute or it was just a lucky guess. The first pair of frames she had me try matched my Vera Bradley purse – ha! I did try on a number of other frames, but ended up getting the Vera ones.
We had a volunteer petunia show up in our front hanging basket. Of course we had to see what it would end up looking like.

Dr. M saw this butterfly today – lovely!
He also saw a few other critters…
I finished up another scarf & shipped it off. The recipient makes jewelry so I bundled up some of my “orphan” earrings to send her – maybe she can use them to make something new.

Our tomatoes are dwindling…

I posted some of my pictures from this day here (and talked about my tooth extraction – I’m doing really well with it so far). Here are some fall scenes that Dr. M took.
Friday, November 1st
Dr. M was taking this picture of the fingernail moon as I left for work that morning.
He took these later that day.
I took this picture of the trees near my office. They line the road that goes into our office park – just gorgeous!
I was at a retreat with my fellow Vestry members Friday evening & Saturday. It was at Transfiguration Spirituality Center in Cincinnati. I had the St. Andrew room!
Saturday, November 2nd
I took over 70 pictures this day. I am trying really hard not to share them all with you! There might be a separate blog post in the future, but here is what I’m sharing for now. The retreat had large blocks of silent time. I spent most of that time wandering around the grounds.
One of our “silent time” activities was to draw a picture. I am NOT talented in this area, but I really enjoyed the activity.
I enjoyed the retreat so much that I wanted to stay longer than just the one night. And maybe do it every weekend. Ha! Except I’d want to occasionally take Dr. M with me…
Go to Mamma Fran’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. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. 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!
