A few days of activity

Sorry, folks, about being somewhat missing around my blog but we actually have had several things on the go.  Thought I'd just do a post of pictures with minimal explanation....

A 30 lb. pumpkin = 10 pies and a large pot of THIS soup!

A trip up north to collect our winter's supply of fresh cranberries from the marsh = a stop in Bala to see the water going over the dam.

Same trip = some beautiful leaves.

And beautiful trees.

And a beaver dam.

And finally, a finished baby blankie - knitted, with a crocheted border.

Today's quote is from Joseph Addison.... "Three grand essentials in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for"

Wow, your leaves are really changing up there. I suspect ours will change quickly now. We have had cold and cloudy weather. The weather man mentioned that we may not have any more warm days. Our normal temp for this time of the year is 65 and that is not in the 10 day forecast :(
xx, Carol

It seems Bala Falls will not be with us much longer.
MA....I still cannot comment on the Bloglovin feed ( just no response when I click on 'comments') so I go to my own blog where I have you linked!!

OH my goodness those Autumnal trees are simply gorgeous - even better to see them live.
Your baby blanket is sooooo sweet and love the crocheted border!
Thanks for your lovely comments Mary Anne.
