Fall has arrived here in the mountains and it is a beaut! Such color, and I am enjoying each of my trees as they each have their day in the sun. The Ginnala's are done, as is my Autumn Splendor Maple. My Transparent Apple is dropping it's leaves quickly but leaving me with my Mackintosh and my Red Maple to gaze at. The Rugosa Rose is a bright yellow and the Dogwood a pinky/yellow color. I am glad that I had the forethought to plant so many interesting plants. Below is the view I have from my place in the living room, I think the balloons add a special touch to the scene. :)
We celebrated hubby's birthday just last night (hence the balloons), even though the real day is the 17th. Youngest girl was on a business trip to Albuquerque so we rescheduled. It was nice to all get together in these busy times. His theme this year was Bats and Ghosts! He loves a Halloween theme the best. And I gave him a new inflatable for the yard on Halloween night. A Witch stirring her kettle and a little Ghost helping her. He loved it!
Last week we celebrated Homecoming at our University and it was a lot of fun, but very cold. We only lasted at the parade and hour and 1/2 and I called Uncle. But I got to see the important things. The bands (The Red Wave is my all time favorite, consisting of middle schoolers and both my girls used to be in it), the Foresters (oldest girl is a Wildlife Biologist) and two friends who march in the Alumni Band. We attended the game and we gained a win, and I a sore throat. I just yell way too loud....lol But how could I not? I love my Grizzly's.
So now we are just getting ready for Halloween. A big holiday in our family. We all love to create costumes, dress up and we enjoy the Trick or Treaters. I have my home all decorated inside and out and since these are my most favorite colors, I love it. I have always had a problem with Easter, not on my color wheel....lol I am just not a pastel girl. Give me bold color! Until next week. Always, Kit
