Perfect Morning Sky…

This is a windmill down by the Museum in San Angelo…a gorgeous park full of waterfalls, flowers, sculptures and even built in hopscotch games on the sidewalks down on the river. So beautiful and the perfect ending to our 2 mile historic walk through San Angelo.

cool front skies

When we left for the hospital this morning I saw this cloud bank and with the tree starting to turn, I thought this was a good fall picture.

St. Lawrence Fall Festival

Not much of a picture, but today we went to the St. Lawrence Fall Festival & ate a great German meal.  (Also went by the pecan orchard & saw lots of migrating monarchs, but decided to leave those pictures for someone else to post.)

a tough choice

Since Sundays are busy for me, I took my camera with me when I left for church this morning. I took three great pictures in three very different ways. I was able to take out the sunrise picture taken with the camera phone, but I couldn’t decide between these two. So, I will post them both.

There’s a good chance you’ll see this on my personal blog tomorrow because I really love it. This was the camera sitting on the dash while I steered with the other hand. A half second exposure gets some light trails and it’s a neat picture. Alison likes this next one so I am including it as well.

A fall painting

I was headed for bed when I decided I wasn’t emotionally ready to fail at the autumn challenge on the second day. So, I took this. Here is a picture of my favorite fall painting in the house. And here is a picture of the painting so you can see what it looks like.

So…since didn’t even SEE my “real” camera today, my precious blackberry came to save the day! And who is surprised that my fall pic of the day was taken at the ball park, of my baby girl’s shoes.  🙂

I thought these mums were very pretty.  I normally won’t take only close ups like I have these 2 days.

A day at the ball park

I took this while we spent ALL day at the ball park. My team won first place! 😀

Hang with me here

I think it’s obvious why I posted this picture. It features something quintessentially autumn. What do you mean you don’t see it?  …Beans!  It’s the beans, of course. Wait, you mean that you don’t think that autumn = beans?

Okay, I can tell you’re not buying it.

I’ll confess: I just wanted to post this because of something fun we did tonight. We had a dinner at church with the youth group and their families.  It was a “Crazy Cafe.”  You may have been to one of these before.  It’s a four-course dinner, and you order all four courses up front, four menu items at a time. The catch? All of the menu items are in code, so you don’t know what you’re ordering. You may end up with a big ol’ plate of beans and only a knife for a utensil, if you get any utensils at all. And that’s what happened to Linda here. She was a great sport, and we all had a great time!

(I promise I won’t write a book for each blog post. But hey, I’m a writer so I guess I can’t help it!)  =)

“Fall Ball”

Fall Ball

Today was spent at the softball complex, so the only pictures taken were of the granddaughters’ 7 games we watched.  Since I want to only post 1 picture, it will be of the girls together!  (Em’s team took 1st place!)
