Hello and Happy Tuesday or really Sunday as I'm typing this, lol. Hello November, my post for that is below and I hope you will read it, this is my favorite month! The time is really flying and we know it will keep flying now that the holiday's are upon us, not thrilled about that part. Hope everyone had a good week and safe and happy Halloween. This was our weirdest and not as fun one, the kids are just too big and we are at lost as what to do and our plans kept changing. But we did it and it's over so we will see about next year. I can't remember what I did on Halloween when I got to big, any tips you can give me will be appreciated.
So I am sooooo happy to be typing this post and being able to actually see a bigger crisp clean screen thanks to my dear friend Nancy. Remember I had been using that small thing we had to shake to work, uuuggg. It was really making it harder for me to want on my computer and trying to see things, I was worried my posts were looking as fuzzy and bad as I saw them. She reassured me that it shows up on everyone's screens fine it's just mine. Thankfully her son had an extra monitor and said I could have it, YAY!! Thank you Nancy and son, a big THANK YOU!! Already it's brighten my day, Rich hooked it up right after dinner and here I am using it and enjoying it. Now we are still having a connection issue and the cable guy is coming tomorrow so we will see what happens. I am posting now in case I don't have time tomorrow or the cable guy tells us bad news.
See here it is, all pretty and clear!! Excuse the glare though, lol. Thanks again Nancy!!
Here is another angle of my table like the first photo above. I love both angles that I took and did this a lot during the week for my Week In The Life pictures. It's always fun to get the camera out more and try different things again. Counting both table photos as my beverage and mug for Elizabeth's link up this week. I have had a cough all week and drinking warm cider on these chilly days has helped. On my table are the mini pumpkins from our garden, love these guys. Also, my table is neat despite what you see here. I cleaned it up just for these shots, lol. I use all these things and need them all so I leave it out in piles to have handy to use during the day.
Here are the Halloween ATCs I received my personal swap. So fun to get them and the variety of styles. Sharing the little extra goodies some of them added in for us too. Click on the image to see better if you need to. I'm working on Christmas ones next and will be taking a break from them till next year. Want to get ready for a quiet non busy holiday best as I can, from swaps I mean.
Sadly, I didn't get any good pictures of the yard in fall colors. Most of the trees are bare already, it's windy every day here. But it was a crisp clear cool day on Tuesday when I took this shot. Rich just mowed the grass today too, might be our last one this year hopefully. It was cool enough out that he had to put his snowsuit on to stay warm, lol.
Here is a Mandala I got to sneak in during a light wind and few nature items I could find. Did this on dried up Pine needles that I just love and Rich made sure not to mow them so I could see them and use them. Then I took the green needles from the tree and clustered them between the leaves. It amazes me everyday I take the dog out I find new colored shaped leaves in my yard blown in from someone else's yard. LOVE this and collect them all. I also used part of the corn stalks and tried to make a circle around the mandala, hard to see so click on image to see better. Hoping I can still make a few of these before winter is here or I run out of things to use.
I will share my WITL pictures with you next week after I go through them. This year has been so different from last year, sad in a way but also good and made me fall in love with photography and story telling again. YAY!! So glad Nancy gave me this monitor today, already my post looks so good and makes me happy.
Thank you Elizabeth for hosting us again this week, I know you have a busy month of creating art in front of you. Looking forward to seeing what you make. Take care T time ladies and thank you so much for your visits.
p.s. Did you start your Thankful leaves for the month, I started mine yesterday. Hope some of you will be joining in with me. Try to find one thing each day to be thankful for, it will warm your heart up and turn your bad days around to good days. Please share if you do make them. Thanks!
