I've lived here for 24 years

Yesterday marked the 24th anniversary of us moving into our little home.  The rainy days from Hurricane Sandy (we just got rain and some wind-we are fine and hope you are too!) made for poor picture-taking lighting, but I made do.   I'm so grateful for this roof over my head!

Yes-THIS roof!

Lovely day

Lovely day

My girlie's new picture-she got it at Ikea.  I've never been to Ikea!

There's my sleepy boy!
Have a great weekend!

What a beautiful morning!

Hey-there's happy camper!

Hubby planted this maple tree.

Pretty little maple leaf from the above tree.
Happy Friday!

This and that

A little of this and that as usual: my walls, birds, trees, flowers, skies, the Roc
New additions to the wall of fame

I printed out my bluebird pic and framed it with an old Home Interior frame which I painted.  I'm not sure about that John Deere yellow-yes, it was tractor paint.  Oh, well-good enough for now.   I ordered the i love you, blogs & tea print from here-because I do, I really, really do!

I was pleasantly surprised to see a volunteer nasturtium was blooming under the deck, when everything else is dead!

My name is Holly and I am addicted to taking pictures of trees

and birds (this was a bald eagle that was at Jess' soccer game)

and more birds-see?

and clouds!

I love you, Stinky face-is what I tell Rocco, since he got skunked in the face Sunday night.

I think this is the cutest book!

"But, Mama, but, Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?" 

"Then I would give you a bath and sprinkle you with sweet-smelling powder. And if you still smelled bad, I wouldn't mind, and I would hug you tight, and whisper in your ear, 'I love you, Stinky Face.' "

Then, this morning, Stinky Face decided to tear up his pillow and MY pillowcase!  Have you ever heard of  I swear he did this just so I'd submit his photo.  I haven't...yet.
Have a great rest of the week!

Little bits

Little bits from my camera of this past week-
Shy birdie sitting on the tip top of our pine tree

Zinnias in the garden

Rocco blur

I found a spoon near the woods-it's a nice one.  I'm gonna keep it.

Into the woods
Corner of my bedroom-that's the little sleeper I brought Hoper home in.

Cow on the horizon-I was on my way to my sister's

I was still getting volunteer cosmos last week-I'm sure they've been zapped by frost now.
When I see these stains on my old tablecloth it reminds me that a little girl once did her homework here.

The rolling hills of Pennsylvania

This was today-we still have leaves, but not for long!

I was at my girlie's yesterday.  I was standing in the Walmart parking lot when I took this.  Beauty can be found-even at Walmart!
Have a wonderful week!

Eastern bluebird

Still getting some zinnias-yes! (This is the extent of my fall decorating-haha!)

I pass these guys on my way to town.

I've been accused of being a house plant-but as these pictures prove-I do wander outside every once in a while.  It's really pretty out there!

Have a great day!
