Autumn in my backyard

We will be returning from our cruise today and through the wonderful world of technology I was able to schedule my autumn photos.  I want to thank you for your indulgence as I shared my favorite season with you.  It was fun looking through my pictures and reliving some happy times traveling around Pennsylvania before we left for another adventure.  

As my DH {dear husband} and I get older our adventures are slowing down and it takes longer to recuperate when we return than it does to prepare to go!  But it is a good tired as we return back to our normal schedule.  A tired that lets us know we accomplished something, a tired that reminds us we are indeed young at heart and a tired that also rejuvenate our souls.

Today I will show you autumn in my backyard, where I rest in solitude and enjoy the brisk autumn twilight as winter approaches to coat our earth in the purity of white snow.

  1. Lovely – and looking forward to more pictures from your cruise.

  2. thank you, Patty, for sharing your photos of Fall. A gorgeous season!

  3. I hope your cruise has been wonderful! These preplanned posts of Autumn have been a delight.
    I know just what you mean about taking longer to recover after a holiday as we get older. It takes longer to get ready too! We are off on a special holiday soon and are already preparing! All the best to you 🙂

    • Here it is noon and I am still in my pj’s! But I was able to pick up some Highland Tea in Nova Scotia so I am enjoying a cup of that with some Scottish shortbread. A good way to recuperate! 😉 Where are you going? I enjoy your pictures so am looking forward to seeing them and hearing all about your trip.

  4. I hope your travels are wonderful! I hope we get to see some of those pictures as well!

    • I am working on my post now and will start sharing my pictures. I took nearly 300 but promise to share all of them!! LOL We had perfect weather the whole week, even though some ports were calling for rain.

      • I can’t wait! I have only later in my adult life begun to love love love travel. But I always love love love coming home. I’m glad you had a great time!

      • I must admit it is nice to come home, but oh it is always hard to leave where I am visiting. There is always more to see and do. I would love to hear about the places you have gone to.

      • Well mostly Ireland, but a few other places. But this year our house work has kept us home….except….

        We are taking a grandchild to Disney in December!!!! Shhhhhh, she doesn’t know yet! 😉

        Ireland is on our bucket list…lucky you. And now the surprise in December…my sister goes back as often as she can, it is always something new and exciting going on. Your secret is safe with me. 😉

      • Chatter Master says:

        Thanks for keeping my secret. 😉 Ireland is worthy of making your bucket list.

        We are going to Disney with some Disney life time members! (I don’t know if they really have that, but these people would be if they did.) We will have our own personal tour guides! I’ve never been either so I”m very excited. But mostly excited about taking her.

      • thoughtsfromanamericanwoman says:

        That is sure the best way to see Disney with a little one. My sister should also be a lifetime member!

      • Chatter Master says:

        I know! I’m most excited about seeing it through her. 🙂

    So pretty! My husband just got back from a motorcycle trip to NC, so he brought some fall foliage pics home too– they’ll have to hold me till I can see them in real life! Is that a dogwood off your deck?

    I always say you are so fortunate at this time of the year…and for you to have that beautiful deck dotted with fall colors is just gorgeous… Recuperate quickly and let’s see some pics. 😉

      Thanks, I think I need a vacation to rest up from my vacation!! LOL I would love to see some pictures of Montana, I can envision miles and miles of ranches dotting the beautiful countryside.
