I know I have shown this rug before but still one of my favorites.
The colors are not showing very well though here.

We got another round of snow this week not much for us just lots of wind, hail and rain. The wind oh the wind was so strong.

We also took a trip into Boston for husband's yearly check up.
He got a great report and we go back in a year. We were going to stay over night the night before but because the Red Sox are in the  world series the cheapest room was 900.00 in the city yikes I will deal with the traffic for that much $.

Miss B was in a school play. She did great job. she is in the crown and gold cape. She loved every minute of it.

I also got to go to lunch with a good friend on Thur. I got out early from work so it worked out great. We went to church landing and had a wonderful lunch! 

Since plans got changed around this weekend I ended up with free time so I baked the first pork pie of the season...

And a apple crisp. I had no oatmeal in the cupboard so I used some granola I had and it worked out so good.

We also kept the fire place going most of the day.

I did get to the thrift on my way out and about doing errands.
this was 1.00 and as cute as can be.

This was also 1.00 a hand thrown pottery mug with the top that does fit, great for work when I make a cup of coffee and don't get back to it for a few minutes

This was free, I pulled the fabric liner out and ran it through the washer and dryer perfect.  
I am working on a Christmas rug I have a good start on it
so I should be done for Christmas
We trick or treat with B and my daughter and son in law Wed. then
my son in law's grandmother hosts a fun spread of food and a get together.
I also have my yearly check up. I am hoping some of my numbers are better, I have been exercising and lost some weight and I've been eating better. 
Happy Halloween, Boo!

Early Haloween

Yes we are cold and there is snow on the mountains.

My sweet friend and I got tickets for Castle In The Clouds after dark. I have been there before and told you all about it Here.

So beautiful any time but it was very beautiful on this fall night.

I love these latches and look at the view beyond it!

This is one of the bedroom floors.

Right down to the sweet lamp shades.

This is sun set and it was 5 times more yellow and orange, I could just never get the right color.

After the tour a drink and apps in carriage house yummm

Yes we had to Bee something at the family Halloween party!

And sweet B loved the funny crazy corn maze.

My brother in law as Jack sparrow

And the big hit of the party was T-rex even the dog was confused.
Lots of laugh and lots of fun always had by this crazy family.

I posted this on the facebook page for the store I work at and it got lots of traffic. It is so true for all of us especially if you craft at all.
Have a great week

feeling Blessed

I was up and out early for a walk it was 34 degrees, Brisk and sunny. Makes you walk just a little faster.

Perfect for a very long walk on this amazing day.

Our color is in full amazing fall color, our highest peak got lots of snow and rime ice.( When fog freezes.) Some of the ski areas in Vermont reported snow. I am happy to say we did not get any.

Sat a new friend and I headed out for a hook in put on by my guild.
This is a friend ship rug you pass it around to your friends and they do a square based on your likes or personality. 

I think that is a pretty fun idea. 

out of focus but still wonderful.

Loved this purse 

again out of focus lord I am awful at pictures! but great color

Another wonderful piece the hooking was perfect.
Very small cut but as you can see it is like a picture.

Lauren's gifts the sunflower is on a spring and the pumpkin is hand torn wonderful!!!

The back of the pumpkin is as wonderful as the front.
I am very blessed to have such wonderful friends and family
I am blessed with good health and to live in this amazing house in this wonderful town. I try to count my everyday. I have many to count.
I have a busy week coming up girls night Tuesday and then I am meeting my friend for a night reception at castle in the clouds.
I have talked about the castle before. I will take some pictures hopefully.It will be night time some of the time.
Have a great week

This week I was able to meet Lauren from rugs and pugs
She was in New England to leaf peep with her DSO. They came to the house and then out to dinner. We both feel like we have known each other for ever, what a wonderful evening! and not one picture!
Lauren brought me just the sweetest gifts that I will show next week.

Also this past week we heard of the passing of a very long time friend. Over the past years we have not kept in touch a lot just Christmas cards or bumping into each other once in a while( we live a couple hours apart now).
But when we were younger we were all very close, lots of camping, and going out for fun. I feel so badly for her husband and family they had been married for 44 years. 

And speaking of being married for a long time we celebrated
43 years this week. It has been a long road but this is husband's first hike since his heart attack a year ago. He has done so well taking care of himself since that happened, it was a 2.2 mile hike too! He did great!
And a wonderful view at the top.  For all the people in this area to see the leaves we were all alone on that hike, yeah for us! So peaceful and quiet.

After our hike and a bite to eat we came home to cornstalks and sunflowers on our mailbox that someone had left for us. How I love living in a small town.

I made my first french apple tart this weekend and it was no where near as hard as I thought it would be. 
I plan on making some soup this week even though we are headed to 81 by wed crazy weather! 
 We are still not at peak color yet so we are still in for some good color.
I am off to a hook in put on by my guild next weekend, and I have started a new Christmas rug for a gift 
Have a wonderful week!!!

A Weekend With B

It was B's Daddy's birthday so we went to take care of her and the new puppy for the weekend while they went away for overnight.
First up Apple picking.

She loved it and then we baked turnovers after. It was a beautiful day and she is growing much to fast!

Sunday up and out bright and early to go to Fryburg fair.
We met up with my son in laws family and her cousins who are a bit older but were very nice to go on some rides with her.

She had lots of fun and saw lots of animals and left tired. A very fun weekend! any time with her is so wonderful!

On the way out we met the one man band on a bike very fun!

Since I have been back home I have been busy getting fall decorations up.
I am getting a very special visitor on Wed!!
Lauren from rugs and pugs is coming! We have been blog friends since I started blogging and it feels like I know her personally but it will be so good to meet her in person and hug her! 
More to come.
