A structure in Barkley Farmstead in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I go here to walk, think, admire, observe. I am almost always with my five year old charge. I spend five days a week with this bright charming fellow. Here is a snippet of my day. I love my job.
HIM: Why are there Chrisrmas wreaths hanging in stores before Thanksgiving?
ME: I don’t really know, bud.
HIM: I love Christmas. I can’t wait.
ME: Don’t rush it, pal.
HIM: Do you know what I love about Christmas?
ME: No. Tell me.
HIM: I love the presents.
ME: Me too.
HIM: And I love that I get to eat candy canes.
HIM: And I love the joy of family. (No lie. He said that. Verbatim.)
ME: That’s a really nice thing to say. I’m glad you feel that way.
HIM: I can’t help it. It’s so joy-able. (Also verbatim.) 😉
THIS KID’S ANGLING FOR SOMETHING, WOULDNT YOU SAY?

I’m low on bark but long on leaves while walking through the park nearby that is blanketed in red and gold. Each step I take makes a crispy, crunching sound. Like something out of a horror movie. I even scared myself! You know, like when you’re watching something spooky, and you’re shouting to the TV. “Don’t go in the basement!” “Why would you follow the sound. RUN WHILE YOU CAN!” “DON’T OPEN THAT DOOR!”
Thank goodness it was so gorgeous or I might have had to turn around. “NO! DONT LOOK BEHIND YOU!!!”
WALK THIS WAY…

Don’t be afraid to take a long walk and breathe it all in. But before you do, drop by Cee’s challenge by clicking on the icon below.
This week I decided to fuss with a couple apps and turn a few ordinary circle into a few odd ball circle. I like the effects. I like that it was fun. Problem with doing this is that there are so many options, combinations, and choices. You could lose track of time just messing around with this stuff. Still…fun. 😄
Here’s hoping my circles made you smile, at least a little, and then a little more, and then a lot.

Autumn in town…
Autumn at the Jersey shore… 😉
Any way you cut it, it’s a magical, mystical, marvelous time of year.

I took the advice a blogger friend and embarked on a head-clearing walk. A rather poor night’s sleep does not do wonders for the spirit, so I thought a walk would help.
And speaking of spirits – ok. Bad segue. I know. – I’m noticing that the Halloween Spirit, is becoming a Hollywood Production anymore. Remember when we hung cardboard pumpkins, cats, and witches in the window? Maybe a real pumpkin or two got placed on the lawn or carved and placed in the window with a candle that melted it’s insides. Now the following pix are not extraordinary, but we had nothing like this when I was a kid.
I present, my Halloween creepy, oddball captures…
Now at my house things are a little more subdued.
Whatever your choice of Halloween decor, pick your poison and have a happy and safe day and night.
