Hi everyone! We got a lot of snow and it was wet and heavy. We are blessed. We have power! But many were not as lucky. So I am sharing some photos I took. Except for Maxine. She is making me laugh! My son-in-law has a cool motorcycle. (I will have to post my pic of me sitting on it! Ha Ha). But it is sitting outside in the snow! is cold and wet. Poor motorcycle. So Maxine is her usual snarky self making wise cracks! Ha Ha! Hee Hee! I really like Maxine.
My broken branches photo is a great one too! When my SIL got up today (his day off) this enormous branch was laying on top of his Passport. The good news is there was no major damage. The bad news is the tree branch is so large it will be a while before we can cut it and bind it for our trash service! Grateful no one was hurt!
The red tree is beautiful. It is such a nice autumn reminder. It looks pink in the sunlight. I shot this over the weekend, It was before the cold and snow set in.
Then there is the Halloween pumpkin Amy from our vendor across the hall decorated for us!  She works for a sleep study clinic and brought this cute pumpkin in its Halloween finest to us.
Another vendor  brought us the "Headless Horseman" pumpkin. Did you read "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" by Washington Irving? Written in 1917 it is a classic and features Rip van Winkle:
A pleasing land of drowsy head it was.
Of dreams that wave before the half-shut eye.
And of gay castles in the clouds that pass.
For ever flushing round a summer sky.
Now hop over to  Jenny and say hi! Visit all the participates of this weekly fun at Alphabe Thursday!

Oh dear - the "S" so not ready for winter to come...I find as the years go by, it loses its charm once Christmas holidays have gone by.

That Maxine - she is always such a hoot and her in your face attitude cracks me up.

Thank you for a fun visit and stay warm!

Snow???? oh my!!! That is a bad word in the Paxton household! If you got it, we will shortly! It sure is cold enough for it at night! I love the pictures of the witch and the pumpkin and the tree is beautiful. Tell the white stuff to stay away from my part of Michigan!!!!
I do hope you are having a great and blessed day!

I'm with you...not ready for the winter cold just yet...and certainly not the snow. Brrrr.

Jeanie said...

Hi, Sandie from Chatty Crone sent me over....I guess because we are both in Colorado and writing about the snow. We got a lot of it, but it is melting pretty well today. The was a lot of tree damage around here (Louisville) too. It is really sad to see.
