Let’s see.

Funny thing is…you could pull up seat today and I promise you would sit there in silence. Today was one of those days I enjoyed deep thoughts. I was thinking how quickly October passed by, contemplated whether a trip to New England was necessary, and realized with the cooler temps, the snakes should be in hiding, and we can begin our sunrise hikes.


Today I sat by the pool in my rickety, blue rocker and successfully planned my winter gardens…in my mind anyway. The pool will be a place to reflect until next March. I am good with that. The best thing about the changing seasons, is everything feels fresh, and new.

Fresh, and new?


I have shared a lot about October over the last few weeks and wondered if there might be another way to share my month. So I pulled up a seat with a with Xingfumama, to see what my month looked like in regards to places to sit.

Simple fun. Stay with me.

Photos of me don’t often end up here, but grateful for a friend who captured a favorite moment from my birthday celebration at the beginning of the month. The sunset was timed perfectly.

Life does not come with instructions on how to live, but it does come with trees, sunsets, smiles, and laughter.-Debbie Shapiro

Monument Valley is always a lesson in culture, another way of life, and appreciation for our own. Horseback is commonplace, but the wagons from the day are nothing in comparison to Jeepin’ around the landscape.

Some call it the middle of nowhere. I call it the center of my world.-unknown

Wait for me!

The search for autumn took us north to Flagstaff.

Autumn leaves don’t fall, they fly. They take their time and wander on this, their only chance to soar. -Della Owens.


And the last weeks of the month are for Friday Night Lights.

Sometimes they win and sometimes they lose, but they never run out of popcorn and pretzels.

Welcome to November.
