Five things - a day late....

 Has it been a busy week for you?  It has definitely been a busy one here for us!  We’ve tried to “take time to smell the roses,” though, and that leads into my list!

#1)  Although we have had several frosty mornings and temps below freezing a couple of times, the Knock-Out Rose is letting us know it isn’t ready to be the “last rose of summer!”

#2)  The beauty of this Autumn is still quite evident in our neighborhood.
#3)  This was a huge help as we proceeded with a masked, socially distanced Thanksgiving.
Small Town Girl, formerly known as City Girl, arranged this rental, which was delivered to our place.

#4)  There were no S’Mores on this night....too much feasting earlier....but this was a lot of fun.

A fire in the fire pit!  One of the things I love on a chilly evening!

#5)  I managed to surprise some robins earlier....

I couldn’t get the camera ready in time to show him taking a bath!  I had to act really quickly before it was discovered that I was outside watching!

I’m hopping off the routine this week, and there’s no menu posting today.  I’ll try to catch up with that after the fact on Monday.

Good wishes to all for the remainder of the weekend!


  1. Good afternoon, Sister! It's been a somewhat busy week for me, too, although I didn't do as much cooking as you undoubtedly did! I made my usual pies (with my original crust required my my daughter): Pistachio, Chocolate, and a Derby Pie that didn't turn out exactly right, but was still edible. As you know, I traveled out to your place to catch a masked glimpse of my nieces and their crew, and that was delightful!! I'm so glad to be back "home," and I hope you'll have a chance to get some rest for awhile. Love you!

  2. I'm sure even if you didn't post about your menu, the feast was fantastic. What a sturdy rose and so beautiful.
    Enjoy your weekend and stay safe and wello.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. I'm so glad things worked out well for Thanksgiving. I'm sure the food was delicious, as always. Those pesky birds, always quicker at disappearing than we are getting the camera out. Well, it's onwards and upwards now to Christmas.
    Stay safe and well, Deb xo
