Taking a Break.

Hi Friends,

I took this photo of the north-east corner of my woods yesterday afternoon, and as you can see, the colors are moseying on in, but there is still a lot of green. It will be another week or two before nature has perfected her pallet in these woods.

I did not have time to do Ruby Tuesday this week. I am getting company Wednesday, so have been busy getting ready. My granddaughter McKenzie has a short school week, and her Dad is bringing her down for a visit. They will be here until Saturday. So I will be taking a break from blogging for a few days. I hope you all have a wonderful week. See you Monday or Tuesday.

Blessings from the woods!

Have fun with your family Renie.
Gosh we are way ahead in Autumn here - our leaves starting changing a month ago and are mostly on the ground now :)

Hi Renie

That photo is great, you take some smashing photos.

Have a lovely time with your family and don't worry about posting. We'll be here when you get back.

Glad you will be getting to spend some time with your son and granddaughter this week. We will be thinking about you and hope you are having fun. We wanted to go on our fall drive this weekend but it does look like it may be another week before the colors change. Have a great time with your family.

Hi Renie,

Enjoy your week with the family. As far as "Ruby Tuesday" I see some red peekin' through on one of the trees in your beautiful picture.

Have a fun week with your Granddaughter and Son.

I got Chicken Soup for the Christian Family Soul from our Village library and read A Refugee Camp Birthday. What can I say but thank God for us you live here in America for people like you and your grandaughter are what makes America great.

Have fun with family....Sometimes, well no all the time, that is much more important than blogging although I'll miss your Ruby Tuesday.

Oh how lucky for you Renie! To have your family visit for a few days! Enjoy and treasure the moments!
It’s blustery here today, leaves are falling like snow.
Thank you Renie for all of your warm and encouraging thoughts, they are very dear to me!)

Beautiful photo! You're so lucky that that's what you see when you look out at your yard!

Fall colors have definitely arrived up here and they're just gorgeous! I love this time of year!

Have a wonderful break and enjoy your time with your family!

A lovely picture. Our trees are colorful now too. Many have lost their leaves already but the golds and reds still hanging on are wonderful.
I pray your rime with your granddaughter is very special.

Mary said...


Visitors? So cool! We grannies just need to see the Grands every now and then or our world turns upside down. I'm so glad Mackenzie and her Dad are coming for a visit. Enjoy!

Did you know that our blogs (yours and mine) was featured here:


What a wonderful surprise.

I can hardly wait to see photos of your woods in autumn this year. Ours were spectacular but with all the wind and rain we've had, they are pretty much done.

Blessings for a great weekend.
