Front Yard (Snow) Fingers

Front Yard Snow Covered Grass

View Across the Road (My Favorite) :-)

 Side yard (Garden)

Side View on Down... 

O.K. So today (the 29th of October) we had our 
very first snowfall last night. And here it is for you all! 
I thought that it looked great! What is it about 
snow that invigorates so? BUT~~~~my husband 
just told me that they are predicting 80 MPH winds 
for us tonight...WHAT? Surely~~~~you jest. I'll let 
you know what that's like. Scraped the car and 
sent my daughter off to school but we are thinking 
at some point, they will cancel it. We just got most of 
our profuse leaves (and I do mean just piles and piles) 
raked up yesterday and Saturday.

3 Marvelous Fall Shots...

We (finally) took a ride out and about this past weekend. 
I was eager to get the top shot, one of my most favorite 
overlook 'long views' of the Appalachian mountains right 
off of the Blue Ridge Parkway...
How about those fall c-o-l-o-r-s (in the middle shot?!) 
And my question (of the day) for you is...what is 
odd about the bottom shot? 
Hoping all is well for my family and my friends.

A Heavenly Coffee Cake...

This is my husband's latest take on a recipe straight from the 
'cake place called heaven!' We have a lot of Kuri squash 
(and various squashes here, right now, in the High Country...) 
Accordingly, then, this is a Kuri squash  and homemade 
applesauce coffee cake with a BIG butter crumble 
and sugary glaze on the top! 
My...oh, my
Need I paste a smiley face??
(I should have taken a side view shot of the slice 
itself but I couldn't wait to eat it! 
...Sorry about that!)
