Autumn Shimmer

Sorry I’m late with this. I have thousands of photos, but sometimes I just don’t know what to select. Kind of like having too many clothes and not knowing what to wear, ha ha.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….

Autumn Maples and Duolingo

This was taken in Maryland where they have gorgeous autumn leaves.

Have you heard of duolingo? It’s a great free app for learning all kinds of languages. I’m currently studying Swedish because I loved visiting Sweden and hope to go back. It’s very quick and easy with lots of opportunities to review the lessons you missed. You also get to hear a native speaker for accurate pronunciation. I’m fluent in French and have a working knowledge of Spanish and German, so I think that gave me a bit of an edge. Swedish is also surprisingly close to English. I don’t know if I’ll become fluent, but it’s been a fun exercise.

Great weekend and stay healthy….

Halloween Will Be Different This Year

For the first time ever, we won’t be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters. We actually don’t expect to have any kids ring the doorbell this year because of the pandemic. So strange, but that’s 2020 for you.

Also, on Halloween night there will be something called a Hunter’s Blue Moon. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, a Halloween full moon visible for all time zones on Earth hasn’t happened since 1944. It won’t happen again until 2039. Cool, huh?It’s called a Hunter’s Moon because it’s the first full moon after the Harvest Moon when hunters used moonlight to find their way.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….

Succulent

Not sure what this succulent is–maybe a type of aloe? Anyway, I like the combination of the blue fence and the green plant.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy!

Table for Two

I do love these bistro chairs like the ones in Paris. The table too. It’s strange to not be able to travel outside the U.S., but these are weird times.

I shot this in Easton, Maryland.

Stay safe and have a great weekend….

It’s Autumn, Y’all

[For some reason this didn’t publish two weeks ago. Sending it now.]

I don’t know about you, but time is flying for me. Can’t believe it’s fall already.

Years ago I lived in Richmond, Virginia, the former capital of the Confederacy. After years of saying “you guys,” I adopted the very-Southern “y’all.” It took a few years to lose that, but for some reason it popped into my head today.

I hope you’re enjoying the autumn weather and that you’re all healthy.

Great weekend, everyone!

Back to Summer

Welp, it was 92F. here yesterday and will probably get close to that again today, so the weather is feeling summery again. September seems to be our hottest month.

I’m so pleased that the pelican flew over right as I snapped this. I guess he’s on guard duty too.

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy!

Roiling

Have to say I really miss traveling. It’s so strange to not go anywhere for months. I miss places like the Inside Passage of Alaska where this shot of roiling clouds was taken. But I am grateful to be alive and have food to eat when so many don’t. We’ll get through this!

Great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy….
