Trade Day Fun


I feel like it is getting time to say goodbye to fall... even though it doesn't officially end until December 20. 


Yesterday morning, a beautiful carpet of golds, oranges and reds welcomed me into the yard.  God's work is amazing.  So beautiful.  So perfect.  Fills my heart with gratitude and a deep sense of appreciation.  Won't be long until all the leaves are gone and Ol' Man Winter will be comin'.


I enjoyed the last of my birthday (almost a month ago... love to make it last) celebration by meeting my dear, dear friend Barbara in Canton for the day.  We used to go almost every month to meet up, along with Amanda, and enjoy a great day of visiting.


Food has always been a big part of the fun.  Not healthy food.  Fun food.  Man, the smells are just heavenly.


Amanda, we sure missed you... had to leave a few of these on the plate.  Couldn't take up all your slack.  =)


...so that we could have room for some other taste-bud delights!  Well, I need to end my break from decorating... Christmas is on the way!  Back to it!!  Happy weekend to all!

Sounds like y'all had fun. :-) That first picture of the leaves on the ground...wow! Great shot! I love angles like that. Nicely done. We're enjoying our warm Christmas-y home tonight, too. Have fun!

I cleaned up the leaves off the front yard today right before more rain came. Getting cold here starting tomorrow. I don't like it real cold, but it does feel more like the holidays. Looks like you had some yummy unhealthy food. You go girl. Now get that decorating done!

Deb said...

I love Canton...but the food is definately not on the healthy side...

Looks like fun ,,, and good food. And the leaves are beautiful. Enjoy your decorating ,,, maybe it's done by now, then you can enjoy what you have done.

Amanda said...

Love the pictures.

This is one of the things I miss most about home. I miss our monthly Canton visits. I miss the conversations. I miss the sausage biscuit. I miss the twister chips (with salt and ketchup). I miss taking turns with the buggy. I miss the smells. I miss the GREAT deals. I just miss it all. I'm so glad you and Barbara got to go and partake in all of the glory and splendor and excitement that is Canton. Love you. XOXOXOXOX

PS - I haven't posted pics of the tree yet because - wouldn't you know it, I can't get very good lighting to take a good pic. I have tried twice now at different times during the day and standing at several different places in the living room. Ugh! So frustrating... Trying again tomorrow.

Solar Powered said...

Now, after reading Amanda's comment, I really want to go!

Thank you so much for checking in on me. I finally posted. I thought of you so much today as I ran. It was a beautiful day and a great run. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support.

Tanna, beautiful leaf pictures. I was beginning to worry about color this fall, but it cam through! It seems like it's been especially colorful this year!

I was hoping to make it to Canton this month, but ran out of time. Glad you got to enjoy your day and your friend AND all that terrible, horrible no-good food! YUM!

Carol............. said...

The leaf photos are absolutely gorgeous!

Fun food is sometimes necessary to help feed the soul, LOL!

I am SO glad you popped over from Vista Woman's site to visit me a moment. It was a pleasure to poke around in your own place.... I have a feeling it's a real treasure trove of good things to read and ponder.

I saw your 2010 theme of Mission: Thrive. And as this year draws to a close, I may have to 'borrow' a page from you and possibly ponder such a theme for me in 2011.

Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places..........

Jill said...

Your photos are BEAUTIFUL! The colors! OH!

I don't think I have wished you a proper birthday! Happy Birthday...and I will consider it ON TIME since you celebrate the whole month!

We have 16 degrees and a good covering of snow here today...I have the kettle on even as I type!

Chatty Crone said...

Okay - I've never been there - but it looks like fun!

All our leaves are gone and the days are getting cooler amd darker.

I am waiting till I return from my grandson's second birtthday celebration before I begin to decorate for Christmas...it will be a simplier hoiliday this year. but that is OK.

Katherine said...

Don't you just love Canton. I have become quite fond myself! So much to adore about it. Your Amanda will be back one of these days to continue your monthly adventures there! :)
