Well, we made it to Autumn……colors are just starting to pop here and there around here locally, but I was just in the Adirondacks this week and – WOW!!! I’ll have a post with pics later – maybe today, we’ll see…..but, suffice it to say I was treated to an amazing show of color and look forward to more here as the weeks go by!
So, here’s my next set of September Daily Photos:
STEP – Option 2
Wasn’t sure how to represent “Zingy”……decided I would use the word to show how seeing the Medina Falls from the air made me feel!!!
Went to my archives for this one……FDR Memorial in Washington DC depicting the bread lines of the Great Depression
Love when I have a little alone time before everyone else starts to arrive for church
There you go…….watch for my Adirondack post and the last group of September Daily Photos…..and, anything else I might decide to share!!! 🙂
It was a beautiful day to go flying…….and, as luck would have it, my friend just happened to be here with his plane! So, we went up for a ride, this morning after breakfast. I didn’t take my camera, this time, but did get some really nice shots with my iPhone! We went out Medina-way and then along the shore of Lake Ontario coming back to Albion. The sky was clear and the wind was perfect – a really smooth flight……well, except for the quick dip we had to take to avoid a couple huge geese that came flying right at us!!! EEK!!! But, all was good!

Corn fields sure look different from this angle!!! 🙂
It was a great morning……funny, I love going up in Ron’s plane whenever he comes to visit. I wish I would have enjoyed it more years ago when we were dating and he had a Cessna, but it made me sick to my stomach to fly in it, so I went up with him a few times, but never really got to enjoy it. But, this plane is different – I don’t get the same smells that upset my stomach and he has headphones to cut down on the loud noise and makes it so we can actually talk to each other…….it’s just better and so much more enjoyable! Can’t wait for my next chance to go up, again!!!
And….here we go with the second group of Daily Photos for September……man, for being such a LONG year, it sure has flown by! hahahaha
NOOK (and crannies)
I really need to snap out of it and get out of my slump……I need to get out and do more than just my Daily Photo Challenge…….Here are a few that I took over the last few days, for starters:
OK – so I DID get out for a little pedi day…….LOL
See you next week, if not before…….
Here we go…….last month of the third quarter of 2020……let’s hope things start getting back to some form of normal! 🙂
To start off, here are a couple “funnies” to give you a chuckle before we get into my Daily Photos:
Oh, No!!! Not Aunt Clara!!! Call Dr. Bombay……right away!!! That’ll fix things!!! 🙂
As much as I hate wearing masks, I do pride myself with having a nice mask collection to match just about anything in my wardrobe and to be appropriate for just about anywhere I need to go!!! 🙂
So, now, on with the show……
I always feel super duper when I get to see one of our lift bridges up for a passing boat!
Some of my fave shots on the wall…..
I had to sit by myself in church this week – my friend who usually sits with me was out of town!
ooppss – some beverages leave rings!!!
I got a couple new “hippy” flags to add some color and spice to my home
HOME – 2
Keep our students and teachers in your prayers as they head back to school…….see you next week, if not before!!!
OK, so I made it through another month……still wearing my mask (got quite a nice little wardrobe of them)……still not going anywhere interesting enough to write about….but, I’m happy, healthy, and safe……what more can I ask for??? I have one thing to say about September and here it is:
But, before we move on to September, here is the last group of Daily Photos for August:

They are so huge!!! Can’t wait till the whole row is in bloom!!!

WOW – another month gone…….August……can you believe it? Sure, time flies much faster as we get older, but this year has been a blur……and, yet, it has also been oh so long with strangeness!!! But……let’s just get on with the final July Daily Photos:
I HAVE NEVER……
Done acupuncture before……until now!!!
Here’s a sneak peek at the August Topic List:
Until then……stay safe, healthy, and happy!
I want to start off this post with yesterday’s “You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me” moment! I was sitting at my desk in my den, which looks out at my front lawn and has a perfect view of the Bird Buffet. I enjoy watching the birds….and, yes, even the squirrels…..enjoying the treats I put out for them. Well, yesterday, I looked out and couldn’t believe my eyes! The squirrels like to climb the shepherds hook and hang off the roof of the bird feeder “house” to eat the sunflower seeds – it’s comical to see their acrobatics as they fearlessly hang upside down for their treat. Then, there was yesterday…….one quite clever little bugger figured out how to get the top off the roof of the “house” so he can just sit there and stick his head inside to feast without any death-defying stunts! I could not believe what I was seeing! Now I have seen it all! Mind you, this is not as easy a task as it sounds — the lid can’t just be easily knocked off. When filling the feeder, I have to get my finger nails under the edge and rock it back and forth to get it to come loose – it fits that snugly! I put the lid back on later in the day…….and, then……this morning, he’s back and has removed it, again…..the smart little rascal remembered his accomplishment and did it again! But…..he has a buddy that isn’t as smart……his buddy climbed the shepherds hook and fought the smart one to earn the spot on the roof……but, instead of sticking his head inside the hole in the roof and reaping the benefits of his smart friend to do it the easy way, he did the balancing act to hang over the side to get his seeds from the tray……not too smart, huh??? LOL
So, now……on with my Daily Photos:
Not by me, but the birds seem to love them!
WHERE I STOOD
So, there you have it……another week in the history books…..see you next time!
