First, with an emphasis on zip…
(Let me tell you what a great husband I have….he knows I’m a road warrior. He knows I love blue, too! )
Bob and I were sharing a car for while. But this summer, as he began a new job, he suggested I take this for a test drive… He didn’t have to ask twice. I’ve loved these cars since I saw one on vacation in 2003. 10+ years later, the “emptying nest”can handle this. As a former ad copywriter, I certainly appreciate zippy ad copy too, but I digress…
I’m in love with this little turbo!
Meanwhile, back on those country lanes, this is “high season” when “leaf peepers” from around the world visit New England and enjoy the fall foliage. We are about at about 30% “turned” right now, but things are getting more gorgeous by the day. Let me show you some of my local views. (FYI: You can click on the images to make them larger.)
I pass these ladies pretty regularly…
She is outstanding in her field.
Shadows getting longer in the afternoons…
I love walking to these pastures.
We have many ponds in our neighborhood. I love the cloud reflections after some recent rainfall.
“Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!” (1 Chronicles 16: 31)”
“…let the field exult, and everything in it!” (1 Chronicles 16:32)
“Then shall the trees of the wood sing for joy before the LORD…” (1 Chronicles 16: 33)
“O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures for ever!” (1 Chronicles 16: 34)
Around our yard…
St Francis feeds the birds.
Mary, with the “burning bush” behind her.
This is Brady, my pumpkin-sized pooch. Clearly he is not impressed by it.
Previous autumn posts… on leaf blowers.
From the archived Among Women blog: “God’s World” by Edna St Vincent Millay, plus a poem by Maria Johnson, and finally my photo essay on barns.
