Roads I travel.....


There are a set of roads that I travel routinely, my family refers to these roads as “over the hill”. I travel these roads to the town where my oldest daughter lives, on holidays to visit family, to the high school that my kids picked. Living in a small town with no high school my children had a choice of high schools from surrounding towns.

This back way is peppered with lovely homes, stone churches, white steeples, the home of the late Bill Blass and the gates that lead to Joan Rivers’s new country home..
No matter how many times I travel this way I never tire of the backdrop of my path..
Bloggers often share drive bys, so with camera in hand I would like to share with you my “over the hill.”

this is the back of the house....
the barns are also pink...
lace curtain windows
New England at its best
this church is across the road from the
house below...
this is a true country church ....


a road that was once a cow path...


A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.-- Eric Sloane

Oct. 1, where did the time go....Jessi don't look





my sweet and sinister swap is all wrapped and ready to go..
A basket filled with black, white and some orange
sweet and sinister fun..




no more butterflies left in the yard..
the dark comes by the end of dinner...
cool evenings and chilly nights...


where did the time go..


I love October ....the colors and smell of the air.
the scent of hickory nuts



fresh cut wood that soon will be stacked ..

we will need to order heating oil soon..
this will cost us as much as we paid for our first car ...

the chimney will be cleaned and wood stove all set ..
cocoa in the pantry ...
I need some new fluffy warm socks.

witch shoe tags that I made to add to the sweet and sisister swap loot...
