Weekly Topics

I did it again, I joined another swap - this time it's the Amazing Autumn Coffee Swap This week's topic:
What makes a "Fall day" for you? How do you know it's here, and what do you love about the weather, the scenery, or something else that makes Autumn lovely?

Yesterday, I took Beau out for a walk all by himself. Just me, Beau & the camera. A few of the things I love about Fall days - clear, sunny weather. The kind where you can drive around with the top down and the radio cranked - thanks to heat and heated seats. I also love the colors of the trees. Everyone thinks of New England for fall color and I've visited and everyone is right - breathtaking. However, we have fall color in the Pacific Northwest, it is just in much smaller quantities because I do live in the Evergreen State, after all.

Another Fall reminder - the Birthday/Holiday season starts in October. Today is my birthday, apparently I've crossed an invisible line into "old" today (according to JB), then his birthday is Saturday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, our Anniversary/New Year's Eve, ending with The Princess' birthday in January. It's gonna get busy. Thanks so much for all the well wishes - I appreciate them all.


  1. Happy birthday!

    I'm so glad you and Beau had a few moments to call your own yesterday...

    Good luck with the holiday season. My calendar looks much the same!

  2. Happy Birthday, Gaylen!

    May your day be filled with fun, and your year filled with joy.


  3. Hereabouts, we call this the "Grand Celebratory Season", with all the same holidays everyone else has, plus both of our birthdays and 6 of the 9 kids' birthdays between now and SuperBowl Sunday. I won't know my name by the new year!

    Happy Birthday!

  4. Oh, yeah, and tell JB that I'm not old, although he may be, and you're younger than me, so there!

  5. you know, i think the New England fall IS gorgeous...but you hit the nail on the head with your photo of a PNW fall...those vivid reds, right next to the vivid green Doug Fir. Oh, how i miss Doug Firs, Western Red Cedars, Sitka Spruce, etc.

    Happy Birthday my dear dear friend!!

  6. Happy Birthday!

    Im working on my first swap. It will involve knitting a premie hat for charity at the same time. Stay tuned to irisheyes please. I'll announce within a week. Maybe you want to play!


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
