November 30

I took this picture from the third floor of our local museum, looking down over the main hall.
It looked beautiful, decorated for Christmas, and still displaying some treasures!

November 28

I have to tell you about our Thanksgiving surprise. This is our son Andy, who is in the Army. He told us he wouldn't be able to come for Thanksgiving as he is coming home for Christmas.
Imagine our surprise when the doorbell rang at 10 am and he was standing there!
He wanted to celebrate the holiday and my birthday.
It made my day!

November 24

So - it was my birthday today. And not just any birthday - it was my 50th!
This is a sampling of some of the lovely things I got. I also got Metamucil, skin revitalizing cream, icy hot gel... I think I'm ready!
I did get some nice things too - 2 bouquets of flowers sent to work, some chocolates, a few books and even some gorgeous jewelry from my hubby!
All in all - 50's not bad!

November 22

I took this picture a few nights ago. My nephew broke his wrist, and I went along to the ER to keep my sister company because ER visits are never short!
We left the hospital about 12:30 in the morning. This office building was all dark except the stairwell, and I liked the look of it.

Oliver fall asleep on my lap, laying on his back and I took advantage of the opportunity to snap his picture.

November 15

The weather is changing. Last week it was sunny and warm. Now the skies are gray and cloudy, and it's cold. Winter is coming, like it or not!

November 11

We had a fun evening at church tonight. A bunch of women got together and learned how to make so things that can be used as gifts.
When I came out to the parking lot, it was still quite warm, and it was just a pretty night. I don't often take pictures at night, but it looked so nice, I gave it a try.

November 7

It was a gorgeous day here today. The sun was shining and the temps were in the low 60's which is incredible for November.
This picture was taken in one of my favorite spots. I've been trying to get a picture of this in all 4 seasons, and I've had a hard time with Fall because the leaves were taking such a long time to change and I was hoping for a sunny day for the picture.
Although it's not as colorful as I would like, I think this will work for my Fall picture.

November 4

I've shown you this tree several times lately, but I so often admire it, and I think it's beautiful in all it's stages, so I'm showing you again.
This is a big old beech tree that I see out my living room window. It, and most of the other trees have lost almost all there leaves, but it's still a pretty sight!

November 2

The leaves have a different type of beauty when they are on the ground.
