A little of this & a little of that

We haven't been doing too much the last couple of days.
G's been out of school with strep throat. 103 fevers are always fun.

We did stroll outside a little while ago to take a look at the beautiful color still in the area.

Take a look around our yard.


Our young trees. I hope we can stay here long enough to see them get a lot larger.


The river birch in front has already lost it's leaves.



G & I threw together a couple of grapevine wreaths for the gates.I'll change them up seasonally. I didn't put too much effort into the fall look since Christmas will be going up in a few weeks.


That's about all we've been up to. Stop back by again soon.

Oh, almost forgot, I finished New Moon last night. I need a quick trip out to get the last two.

Beautiful pictures!!! I LOVE those grapevine wreaths on the gates.

You are now addicted to the Twilight series too....lol!! I have now started Eclipse. When I bought it I went ahead and bought Breaking Dawn at the same time. I knew the instant I finished Eclipse I would have to start the final book.

Cute idea to hang the grapevine wreaths on your gate! Love the fall scenery too. I'm taking my darling husband up to the mountains for some color viewing this weekend so I hope to have my own fall foliage pictures soon *smiles*

I love those wreaths on the gate. Makes it seem very welcoming. And I am sorry to hear about the strep throats in your house lately! Hope everyone is better soon!

I love the fall trees. They dont normally turn colors here, so the few I have seen are really cool! :)

Too bad you don't live closer. I have the next two books. Eclipse (#3) is the best. The trees look absolutely beautiful. :-)

I do hope G is feeling better now...Those fevers can be scary.

I love your fall photos...Our rainy season has started here in Seattle so all our leaves are gone now. I think it's great how you decorate your gates for the seasons!
Have a great weekend,
Robin~♥
