I hope everyone has had a nice week. Our weather has been beautiful, with some light rain Wednesday night and Thursday. Then it cooled off a bit, but with still lots of sunshine and upper-60s temperatures, which make outdoor life very pleasant. And the lovely, sunny weather will continue well into next week. A nice drive to Deer Leap on the Current River to see how the colors are progressing, is in order for this weekend, although my woods still have a lot of green, so I'm guessing it will be the same there. But it's a beautiful drive nevertheless, so we will go for it.
Thursday, my mail carrier drove to the house to deliver a package.
"Looks like someone has sent you a present," he said.
And someone had indeed. These are my prizes from blogging friend Linda's recent giveaway, that I was lucky enough to win. Aren't they beautiful? I love the tote, from the West Virginia Pumpkin Festival, and the book looks like a most interesting read, and Linda even included a lovely Diary. Thank you so much, Linda, for the beautiful prizes, I really love them.
Did anyone else see the Hunters Moon, this week? I took this shot of it Wednesday night, before the clouds rolled in. Of course, I took the picture from my kitchen window, because I'm too chicken to go out and stand in the middle of the field, in the dark, so I was somewhat hampered by some trees, but I thought it turned out rather well. Greg says it's not bad, except for that "flashlight " glare with it. I don't know where that came from, or what caused it, but I still think it's a pretty darn good picture!
I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, friends, and enjoy these lovely clear, bright October days, that seem to be trotting by much too quickly.
Blessings from the woods!
