October 31

It was a beautiful Fall day here. The sun was shining, but it was quite cool. Many of the trees lost there leaves last week in the high winds, but a few are still hanging in there. These trees had actually lost a lot of leaves, but for some reason they look quite green in this shot.

This field is around the corner from our house and they recently did one last harvest. I like the way the bales of hay look against the last bits of color on the trees.

I took this picture a few days ago while I was working. The early morning sky was so pretty! About 30 minutes after I took this it started raining.

I left the house the other night and was immediately enthralled by a huge, full moon hanging in the sky. I pulled over to take a picture, and although my camera doesn't do too well with night time shots, this gives an idea of the view I had.

I took this picture yesterday morning at work. I was doing my morning med pass, when I glanced out onto the patio and was quite surprised to see that it was pouring out. The sun was shining brightly and the rain was pouring down.
I'm told there was a beautiful rainbow, but I didn't get to see it.

October 20

I was at my sister-in-laws house last night, and was startled to see something big fly in the back yard. Upon closer inspection, I found it was turkeys! They were flying onto the roof of their garden shed. They are a funny sight flying, and sitting up there!

It has been another gorgeous day today. I took this picture out of our living room window today. Every time I walked in that room, I enjoyed the colors and the sunshine bouncing off the leaves. I can't help but praise God for His creation when I see this beauty!

Everywhere I look lately, I'm amazed by the beautiful colors.
This wooded area is always pretty, with the little stream running through it, but with the colorful leaves, it is spectacular!

This tree is in our neighbors yard. It's such a brilliant yellow. I love seeing it out of our kitchen window.

This past week the weather here has been just beautiful. Today was no exception, so we decided to go to a park near us for a picnic lunch and some hiking. We had never been here, but my sister kept telling me how much I would like it.
She was right! We spent about 2 hours walking through the woods and along the river that ran through the park. The colors in the trees are really starting to pop. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

"The heavens declare the glory of God, the earth shows his handiwork."

The maple tree in our back yard is starting to change colors. Although most of it is still green, some of the outer leaves are showing some nice color.

Our son is on a week of leave, so we're enjoying having him around this week. Yesterday we went to Grand Haven and walked the pier. As usual, they were walking ahead while I stopped to take pictures. They all decided to jump, to see if I was paying attention. I made them do it again so I could get a picture!

I took this picture when I was in Grand Rapids for Artprize last week. I love the view of the old building, reflected in the new one.

Grand Rapids is having it's second annual Artprize. This brings artists from all over the world to show their art all over the city. There are more than 17,000 artists in 192 places in the city. This goes on for 2 weeks. It's so fun to walk around and see all the different types of art.
This piece is called Elephant Walk and is in front of the Children's Museum. There are 3 elephants standing there and their heads bob when the wind blows.
