Our World Tuesday: Around and About...

This weekend, both my daughter and my puppy dog were ill, so I went about my travels on my own.  I went up to March Farms for the week’s supply of apples, cider, and tomatoes.  We’ll be back on Friday for our pumpkin while the selection is good.
The fall colors were vibrant, and the skies were clear.
The graffiti down the road from the swamp was telling:  the Joker promising revolution…
It was a clear and peaceful weekend, but a little lonely with my girls under the weather.
Still, it was good to be home to as we all rested for Monday.

“...but I suddenly realized what small towns are. They are places where you grow up with the peculiar -- you live next to the strange and the unlikely for so long that everything and everyone become commonplace."  (John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany)

  6. I was raised in New York. Maybe that's why I'm so mesmerized to love the small town i live in now. Hope your daughter and puppy are feeling better.

  14. Such a small town to be "occupied". I love the quote, I had never seen it before it fits every small town I know to a tee.

  18. Ooooh...look at your fall colors!
    I love them!!
    And that still and peaceful lake...ahhh. Such beauty.
    You know that my heart became heavy when I read that your daughters weren't feeling well. No Mama feels whole when her daughter (or son) isn't feeling well. Sending prayers that they will be feeling better.
    Love,

  21. sounds restful. except for the revolution. those are always a lot of work.

  22. The revolution sign caught my eye … with all the woes on the news lately perhaps we need a revolution of the heart.
