We took a drive a couple of Mondays ago to see what we could see along Hwy 9 and Hwy 20 north of Seattle in Washington state.
We saw some lakes we hadn’t seen before like Big Lake.
It was a beautiful drive for the hours we had until the rain came in.
Along the Skagit River in Rockport.
This afternoon Josh, Laura, and I attended the final season game of the Sounders Soccer Team and said goodbye to a fan favorite player Zach Scott. Winning this game means we are now headed to the playoffs. We are happy fans. We also had a wee visit from our dear daughter in law and her Granny who were on this side of the mountains for a memorial service for Granny’s brother. It was a great afternoon from start to finish.

While in Holmes County, Ohio, Mrs. Yoder’s was recommended to us for a meal so we stopped here for lunch breaking up our country drive. The food was plentiful and at a good price. Many locals were eating here rather than tourists.
A fun fall display at Troyer Country Market. “The foods in our Amish Wedding line originate from time-tested Amish recipes and have out-of-this-world flavor,” Vogt said. “The Amish Wedding line is all about foods that are naturally good with clean-label ingredients. Read the ingredient list on our jars, it’s what you don’t see on the label that proves what’s really good inside.”

We came home from Eastern Washington yesterday. It was a 5-1/2 hour drive and
today we have been working at filling up some yard waste bins with the leaves that fell while we were gone.
Do you have to rake leaves? Dear used a leaf blower that sucks up and mulches the leaves. It’s noisy but it gets the job done. We aren’t done with leaves yet because more will fall from the maple, apple tree and pear tree.
…looking forward to what you have in store for us. In the meantime here are some favorites from the end of summer and the very beginning of Fall.
If you missed the recipe for my Pear and Almond Tart on MGCC click away and get it now. You can make this with canned pears.
Our hydrangeas are waning nicely with their colors fading in a pretty way.
Colors are changing on our plants and the leaves are changing and falling.
Our neighbor Pat died this summer and a couple weekends ago there was an estate sale in her home. I ended up buying her drop leaf tea trolley to remember her by. I waited till the last day of the sale when everything was half off to make my purchases. We found a spot for it and we have plans to make a few changes to it. It cost me $20.
Early fall shots of our home from the back of our property. We do welcome Fall/Autumn at this old house.
Thankful for Autumn and all it brings like new colors to enjoy, comfort food, cooler weather, cozy fires, and new adventures.
Thank you Lord for who you are and your love and care over us.
