Home ~ Where you can put your feet up and relax.
Scarf ~ My favorite scarves are my soccer scarves. This is me and my son Josh enjoying a U.S.A. National Team game at Century Link field in Seattle. Sunday night we’ll be wearing our Rave Green Sounders Soccer team scarves and hope that we can pull ahead of L.A. Galaxy to advance to the M.L.S. finals.

Thank you to Kati for her Photo*A*Day Challenge for November.
We have put away Fall decor and we have brought down all our Christmas boxes from the attic. I started full speed ahead on decorating and then I walked into a chair full speed ahead and I think one of my toes is now broken. Oye and bother! Hopefully I’ll be able to walk about better tomorrow. We have a promise of a dry day and we need to go and buy our mystery tree. Have you started your Christmas decorating?
I’m joining Kati’s November Photo-A-Day Challenge with days 10 through 16.
Day 10 ~ Yellow
This is one of the tiles that are part of our back splash behind our stove top.
Day 11 ~ Outside my Window
Ha! First, I had to use some glass cleaner on my window before I snapped away.
Day 12 ~ Small
Day 13 ~ Large
The contrast between the large and the small…
Day 14 ~ Swirl
Day 15 ~ Animal
It’s November so I’m sharing the wild turkeys we saw in Eastern Washington while visiting our son. This part of Eastern Washington is known as the Turkey Capitol of Washington State!
Day 16 ~ Red
For red I’m going back to Windsor England with the Guard in their dress uniforms.
It’s late on Friday and it’s been a busy day for me. After my exercise class I powered up the lawn mower and mowed the lawn which consisted mostly of vacuuming up the fallen leaves from the Maple, Pear and Apple Tree. I’m wondering if this will be the last mow of the season or if there will be one more. I’m sitting with my feet up now and am happy that we have a quiet weekend ahead. We are still in a dry, very cold weather system with plenty of frost in the mornings. I’ve been amazed at all the winter snow photos from many of you. Our son had snow in Eastern Washington.
Love this photo of my pop, sister Lana, and niece Melissa from their Thursday night dinner together.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Oh boy here we are in November already! Kati has a November photo challenge that I hope to participate in from time to time. Today’s prompt is my name starts with…
My name starts with E and when I saw my name in lights I couldn’t resist taking a few photographs. This is an old theater in downtown Bozeman, Montana. My daughter Katie and I were headed east from Washington across the country in May when she spotted this theater.
If you click on the badge at the top of this post you can see the daily prompts for this challenge. Thanks Kati!
Internet has been iffy on this trip of ours and especially at the Farmhouse where we are staying so I’ve not been able to visit much. Hope to see you all soon. Happy November to you!
