Graveyard Visits

The Roomie has been complaining of the lack of Cemetery/Graveyard visits this October.

Today at Lunchtime we were lucky to find an old graveyard not far from work.  It dates back to the early 1800’s and is still current.

It is also very cool too.

This man served during the Spanish/American War.

This person was a Knight of Pythias.  We had to look this one up.  A noble organization.

The weather was brisk and bright.  It was a good visit!

Early Sunsets

The sun is setting earlier and earlier these days.

We stopped at the farm because it was just such a beautiful sunset.

The Roomie loves the farm animals in the fields.  It’s very calming I must say.

There are reasons why Autumn is so incredible a time of year and this is only but one.

 

It’s Peak Leaf Season

It’s raining now but we wanted to get out for perhaps the last of the Leafy pictures for this Autumn Season.

Elmer was feeling right at home in the forest.  We are glad we don’t live in the Urban Center where trees are few.

The Miser Brothers were debating who was in control of the weather now.  They always argue about that.  Today was 46 degrees so Freezie was gloating.

Carol, Hattie and Jonathan love these little adventures too.  You know Jonathan is all about picture-taking.  It is life.

The Leaves Are Changing – Halloweenie Edition

We are all very excited it’s finally our time of year!  Halloween is on the countdown with 6 days to go and then, Hector showed up!

The temps keep fighting summer.  Today it finally got cool again.  This back and forth is driving the Roomie crazy.  She likes it cold, lol.  We were just thrilled to be outside today.

Everyone wanted their pictures taken, just look at those smile 🙂

It was really good time.  We are all looking forward to some more outdoor adventures.  The trees should be turning a little bit brighter soon.  This part of Autumn goes by so quickly.

Hector has easily made a home here with us.  He’s a funny and bony dude!  Until our next adventure…Halloweenies signing out!

A Day with Nature

The Arboretum is The Roomie’s favorite place.  It’s peaceful and still fun.

Elliot, always the jokester, couldn’t stop touching this cherub’s butt.

He said Jonathan started it by taking pictures of the cherub.  After that Elliott said it was all downhill, lol.

The Roomie just shook her head.  Funkos will be Funkos.

More Autumnal Fun

I’ve been having a blast recently with all of the outside fun.

It was a little rainy and overcast for most of the day but I just couldn’t let it get in the way of my good day.

Peak Leaf/Color season has passed but there are still some good colors on the trees.  We took to the Arboretum today.

It wasn’t too bad.  I’m going to miss all of the color once Winter descends upon us but at least I have my memories to keep me feeling good!  Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow!

Autumn With More Milkweed Pods

The trees are in full color now.  The Roommie wanted to see if the milkweed pods were exploding yet and as luck had it they were.

They were all over the field.  I think I saw her doing a little jig.  It was kind of an awkward moment.

I snagged my Milkweed Seed and made my wish.  I sure hope it comes true!

We went to the wheel pump house because it’s not far from the field of Milkweed Pods.  It was a great lunchtime!
I can’t wait to see where we go tomorrow!
