WWC #106: Sit & Fall

I need to apologize to my wonderful & faithful readers. The posts you have been reading are mostly pre-scheduled (with a tiny bit of last-minute editing) because I have been so very busy.  And because I have been so very busy, I have not been able to reciprocate by visiting your blogs for the past few days.  Can I blame my mother?  LOL  Actually, I have been extra busy because my mother has been here visiting me!   😛   She leaves tomorrow morning and life will return to our normally busy schedule.

In the meantime…

It’s Tuesday!

FALL is my favorite season and I love all of the warm, bright colors found in nature (which is kind of funny, since orange is not my favorite color).

Here is a pile of my volunteer “baby pumpkins.”  I threw out some old mouldy ones last FALL into the compost heap, and we got a nice little crop this year… not counting what the deer ate. 😛

Our leaves are truly beautiful this FALL

and sometimes the weird fungus that attacks leaves and looks/feels like spikes!

Ella was too excited to SIT

Last Wednesday, I met Melli for lunch to return Ella to her rightful home.  We had a lovely lunch at Brio.  Ella enjoyed the crispy Italian bread…

…and then she ordered a scrumptious lobster bisque!  Mmmmmm….

I think only lobster could inspire Ella to SIT still for so very long. 😀
This week’s words were SIT and FALL.

Next week we will be exploring   F and  ALTERED.

  1. Yea! It’s time for your fall decorations! … You inspired me to do the same by this weekend. It’s been hard since we had a heat spell kick in for a few days (88 during the day) but it’s back to the low, low 70s now. … Thanks for the cheer-up, and may I just say, “That dang Ella eats better than I!”


  2. I love the tree stump!

    Fall is most definitely my favorite season. 🙂

  3. Fall is my favorite season too. And orange is one of my favorite colors. I love your pics.

    Enjoy the time with your mom. I love that.

  4. Fall is definitely the best time of year. Spring is okay too, but Fall totally rules.

    That stump is great!

    Great photos also. It looks like Fall is in full bloom for you guys.

  5. Fall is my favorite time of year as well, the colors the coolness the sports! enjoy your busy time

  6. YEAH! You have been quiet lately! Thanks for the story and pics 🙂

  7. Love the stump! The leaves are very pretty, but what’s with the fungus?

  8. I had wondered yesterday why Ella’s bisque didn’t make an appearance in your ORANGE post… but there she is today! She’s getting very excited about Jientje coming!

    I thought my friend Daisy was the only one who could accidentally grow a pumpkin – but I see you’ve managed it too! (she actually accidentally grew 3 big ones!) LOL! I can even accidentally grow grass…. *sigh*

    I do HOPE you have enjoyed the last few days with your mom!

  9. I tried to sign up for weekly words a couple of times but can’t find it and always get mystified and give up.

    I am looking forward to Ella being back at my house. It will be fun to see her again. She is very lively for an elephant!

    I hope you’re having fun with your mama. Enjoy. We’ll still be here when you return. (You didn’t miss anything important at my place except the sermon I gave in church on Sunday.)

  10. Love the wee pumpkins and those leaves sure are vibrant. The stump is a hoot. I do miss you but hope you’re having a great time with your Mom. 🙂
