Fun with fall and other random things…

1)  I am sure enjoying falling into autumn.  We are a far way from peak here where we live but the trees are turning and it is just beautiful.  I love it and the little fall tidbits.







2)  One morning when I had to get up early, I walked Olive the pug down to the pond.  The air was pretty chilly but the pond water was still warmish.  So the result was a nice mist rising off the pond.
  Just beautiful!





3)  Can you believe it?  I signed up with Twitter again.  I swore I wouldn’t do it but one night I wanted to respond to something while we were watching a Red Sox game and I couldn’t because I wasn’t on Twitter.  Now, I can tweet baseball to my heart’s content but I haven’t felt strongly enough about anything to tweet about it.  Another of life’s lost opportunities…

4)  I’ve been going to water aerobics at the Y with a friend this week.  The jury is out as to whether or not I will become a water aerobics fan.  For one thing, it starts too darn early in the morning and for another thing, you have to get into the water.  I have to admit, though, that it feels kind of good while I’m in there, but the minute I leave the pool I feel like I’ve gained 85 pounds.

5)  Olive is still in the running on the TripAdvisor Facebook thing.  Here’s the link if you want to stop by:  https://www.facebook.com/TripAdvisor?v=app_448952861833126&rest=1  No pressure from either Olive or me.  Voting ends on the 30th.  This link takes you to the home page for this contest.  If you click on "View Entries" and then click on the drop down menu "Sort by," you'll see "total votes."   Once you go there, you will see the running pug in all her glory.

Looks like Fall is in full swing in your neck of the woods. Give Olive a big ol hug, she is such a cutie!!

Barb said...

You've captured the special beauty of fall - and of Olive. Perhaps you're swallowing too much water in aerobics!

Mary said...

I just love that photo of Olive! What a sweetie.

I am not an early riser, and the only water i like in the am is a nice not too hot, but very warm shower.. i applaud you for going. :)

Sharon said...

The mist on the water with the changing leaves -- stunning! I voted for Olive. Go, Olive! She is so cute :)

Beautiful pictures of fall! My mother in law took a water aerobics class for years....she is 90 this year and still living in her own apartment and baking cakes and cooking for herself nightly! This is even after falling a couple of years ago! So, there must be something to those classes to keep your ticker going strong! Hope you make it to 90, too! :)

Your still life photography is awesome! You make it look like art. Love the photos of the pond! The mist is beautiful!

Glorious Autumn shots. I hear ya on the water aerobics - I think it is the whole bathing suit while passing a mirror thing (never, and I mean NEVER a good thing). Good luck on the votes.

Debbie said...

Seen some fall colors on our Niagara Falls-Toronto trip and expect that we will see so many changes when we return home to VA early next week. I agree on not wanting to get up early to attend any class, even though I do enjoy our trips to the local YMCA...just not at 7 am or earlier.

"Smoke on the Water"...love it!

Gorgeous fall photos Barb -- and I'm on Twitter, but I don't Tweet. A bit too fast paced for me, I guess. :)
