Hellooooooooooo from the east

I keep looking at the photos of all the snow in western SD, and trying to avoid the pics of all the dead animals that came with the blizzard, because it makes me very sad.

And yet, we are having a beautiful fall here in eastern SD, if not a DRYYYYYYY one. I wish we had even a little of that moisture, because things are really really drying up. It is scary and so hard on the trees and little animals. Sigh. Maybe next year will be better.

I have not been gettting out and about much, it's like I automatically holed up the minute the temps dipped. It's my goal to get outside this week while we have temps back in the 70s! whooo hoo!

in no particular order, here is what seems to be my October focus, according to the iphone. I hope your october is exactly what you were hoping for!

Pumpkin love...big, small, fake, whatever kind.

...decorating the mantel...I really need a fall garland of some sort!

leaves turning...

...and turning.

all kinds of soup. lots of it in the freezer for quick dinners.

sunshine! trying to capture and save it for later.

one quick road trip to ikea, with carey and her super-yukon. yes, the sectional sofa DID fit!

one little tomato trying to grow in the fall...a great illustration of hope!

a focus on women's ministry - my absolute favorite :)
