For the first time in a very long time .. I'm just sharing photos of my day.. not even a project today . I hope you're not disappointed..but inspired. Inspired you say?? Inspired to take the opportunities that are right in front of you to CREATE "memories". I thought about that today as I sat in my room working away this morning. Actually I was doing more of the "sitting" part , and not as much of the "working" part as I should have been. A bit of a creative block you might say. Usually when that happens.. for me .. it's time to just walk away for a while.
That is just what I did.. and I'm so glad, because I had a really nice day !
In the scrapbooking world we talk alot about "preserving memories". Sometimes .. like today, it was about enjoying "making the memories".
For years mom and I have always taken a day each fall , to just take a drive in the country to enjoy the colors of the changing leaves and the beautiful countryside. We usually end up at the apple barn to get apples for pie and some cider. We started doing this when the boys were just little guys. They always picked out a pumpkin to carve and never left without a caramel apple.
The drive was really nice and so relaxing, although the leaves haven't turned as much as I thought they would have by now.
We took the long way around , ending up at the apple barn, and then since we were within just a couple of miles of the cabin we made a stop there also. Today was Dans day off , and he was out there working on a project, so we all chatted for a bit.
( the photo below was taken at the cabin)
The next two were taken at the apple barn.
lol.. funny mom. She was acting silly in the photo because.. She didn't want her picture taken since she hadn't curled her hair..but....... I just had too.. she was too cute! lol
(She's a good sport!)
How tall are you anyway mom??? lol
Mom and I both got some apples for baking and I picked us both us some of their delicious Raspberry Cider. yum! I tried to talk mom into a Caramel Apple ..but she said no. Good thing I convinced myself to eat one in front of her would be too rude. lol Because I wanted one BAD. lol
** Walked away from those calories!Whew!**
I wish I could have gotten closer..there was this gorgeous solid black horse standing there just looking at me like.. "what are you doing lady"?
And he was just down the road from the house I always dream of living in......
isn't it amazing?? Every time I see this house and where it is, perched up on this hill with a beautiful view of the river valley.. and think...... ahhhhhh.. I love this place!
