Happy October Pictures, Images and Photos

October

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes' sake, if the were all,
Whose elaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost--
For the grapes' sake along the all.

Good (?) Sunday Mornin' to you, folks!

Well, this last day of September is ending on a very dreary note in this part of Mass., with temps stuck in the mid-50's during the day and low 50's at night. Unfortunately, these temps have now prompted our home furnace to periodically kick on as well. Hopefully, last night's encouraging local TV forecast, for the week ahead, will come to fruition! It shows mostly sunny and near 75 degrees days in the mid to latter part of the week. An early Indian summer perhaps?

Last night's usually glorious "Harvest Moon" wasn't seen here due to overhead clouds and rain. Perhaps, once this nasty system slips on by, in Northeast Mass., we'll get to see at least part of its remaining nighttime illumination.

Hope most of you are having better luck with your end of the month weather and are able to partake of some of the fall delights in your particular area. This afternoon, I'll have to make due with viewing the colorful countryside through windshield wipers. LOL!

Hope to get back on tomorrow with a new October blog. Wow, how this month of September flew by!! Take care, be well and have a decent Sunday/week ahead!!

Quoting RobDaHood:
Still stuck in summer here.
Hot and rainy.
Looks like your high temp today will be our low tonight.

Hope you are having a good day and enjoying the mild temps!


Good Mornin', Rob!

Taking a break to say hello during a gloriously sunny cool fall autumn morning here in Mass. The trees have begun to show increasing tinges of color week by week and our oak trees are spewing acorns by the droves. LOL! Naturally, this will present more chores in the weeks ahead, but it's nice to be outside amongst the colorful scenery and breathing in the fresh autumn air.

My hubby seems to be doing reasonably well now and is pacing himself while getting back to more physical activity. Right now, his favorite is napping in our Florida room off of the kitchen. (The sun streaming through its closed window slats feels so good on the ole bones!) LOL! Nothing beats the free warm solar power currently provided and will be sorely missed once another usually cold New England winter arrives.

Hope you and yours are doing well and are able to enjoy, at least, the warmth your current hot rainy Floridan weather provides plus a nice mild winter.

Good Late Mornin' Pros and Everyone!

I can't get over how fast September has seemingly whisked on by! I've been so deluged with chores and other personal family matters that these recent passing weeks have escaped me. Thankfully, our daytime weather has been relatively sunny and warm which has made my daily errands more palatable. The very chilly lows of mid-40's - low 50 degrees aren't appreciated, as I usually enjoy sitting quietly alone, late at night, in our unheated small Florida room/porch (especially, during the warmer seasons) just to decompress and contemplate from a very busy schedule...if you get my drift. Time to consider an indoor wintertime Plan B real soon. LOL!

The trees in our region are now slightly tinged with color, while our mighty oaks are dropping acorns, like pellets, on our rooftops, etc.. This should provide my hubby and me with enough yardwork to keep from him for getting bored, at least, in the six weeks ahead. I just have to keep reminding him to carefully pace himself, as he tends to go overboard with any/all indoor/outdoor projects and forgets "there's no I in team". LOL!

Hope everyone's able to enjoy at least part of the week ahead and can escape any nasty storms or elements that are potentially out there right now. I'm curious what El Nino will have in store for us this winter. Hope it isn't severe cold with tons of snow! UGH!

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.

Good Afternoon, NEw, GardenGirl and All!

As posted in my blog title today, we were so fortunate to escape any damage resulting from yesterday's nasty wind and rainstorms due to weakening considerably by the time it all reached us here late last night. If anything, it provided us with a naturally beneficial leaf and acorn blower and needed rain, as our yard now appears clear of those previous pesky remnants. Hooray! Less chores the better right now!

Hopefully, those regions that were impacted the most will be able to recover from any/all damages or power outages in short shrift. It's been truly amazing how treacherous this year's end of summer transition has been within two weeks of the other. I love the warmth of summer and cool crisp air of fall but not when these fronts collide with such serious force and results.

For now, the remainder of our weekly weather forecast appears much calmer and brighter. The few overnight lows of near 46, however, are a bit too brisk and challenging for me, as it feels much too soon for our gas furnace to snap on. UGH! Hope that there'll be some of those New England Indian summer days stretching well into October.

Gotta go, more errands and chores await me! Have a decent remainder to your day!

Quoting RobDaHood:
Thank you for the update. Glad to read that things are improving.

Read your "Thanks for kindness and support" and thought, but of course...You are one of the kindest souls ever to grace these blogs. The least any of us can do is to be "cyber-supportive" and let you know that you are in our thoughts.

Hope you and yours have a really great day!


ROB ~ Thanks so much, good WU buddy, for your kindness and generosity to me and so many other WU friends as well! Your tremendous support, wit, information and various talents have helped to make blogging on WU so extra special!! Hope you, your lovely wife and family are all doing well and remain safe from harms way or any potential weather hazzards that head your way!!!

Thankfully, my hubby seems to be doing much better now that he's on newer, better medication and feeling less stressed about his aging parents. As I type this, he's securing the windows in our small Florida room/porch off our kitchen, as he feels he has more vitality and gets bored very easily. Can't keep a good man down for long! I think our good friend, Plapman, has related and/or attested to that, in recent years, but has recently been sidelined with a painful case of pancreatitis. Please go on his blogsite to wish him well. He also certainly deserves our support and best wishes!!!

------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------

I also want to alert our WU friends living in the mid-Atlantic (that currently have tornado warnings/watches up) and those in PA, NY and much of New England to keep a watchful eye out for the large serious storm system heading our way during the course of this afternoon into tomorrow am!! It looks like we'll all need to "batten down the hatches", in these regions, to protect ourselves from potentially heavy winds (up to 50 mph in some places) and rains. For now, it looks like my section of Mass. will receive the lesser effects of this storm. Fingers crossed, as hubby and I are already seeing enough acorns and leaves lying in our yard. I don't want to add broken tree limbs, branches, etc. to the mix.

Stay safe everyone and I'll check in ASAP tomorrow .. which will also be our Pyrate Queen, Emmy's, birthday! Hope you'll be able to leave a birthday greeting on her site and she'll join us online for some shared celebrating! I also hope that our (collective) power remains on once all is said and done with this storm system!

Mass,so good to see you,Good to hear you are catching up on some much needed rest, and things are progressing with you husband and his recovery.Though even the insect world won't even give him a break.Everyone shoud be careful this time of year,this is when bees are the most agressive,maybe they no their days are numbered or whatever.
Hope you to see you from time to time,I won't even discuss that horrible Patriots game yesterday.


Good Morning, NEw!

With this early am's temp a chilly 48 degrees, one of the first discussions my hubby and I had, upon awakening, was about purchasing new pairs of thermal undergarments sometime in the week ahead! LOL! I'm not as durable, thicker skinned or blooded as I once was and have already donned one of my hubby's old flannel jackets to wear indoors! Sure wish we could miraculously go back to a repeat of last year's N.E. fall/winter warm stretch! It was so easy on both one's body and pocketbook!

What a disappointing last few minutes of the PATS vs ARIZ. game yesterday! Talk about a sad comedy of errors or jinxes! Arizona seems to have become an increasingly tougher and more competitive NFL team in recent years. I had a feeling that they might pose more of a threat to the PATS than one might think. I didn't catch but the last few moments of the game on TV due to visiting my elderly M-I-L (with hubby and F-I-L in tow) in her Derry, NH nursing home. Guess I was lucky to miss most of the game only to see them lose by 2 pts in the end. UGH! There's always next week's game (?) LOL!

I'm wondering what you're going to do with yourself once all these months-on-end home remodeling projects are finally finished? Glad to hear the granite countertops are coming in by mid-week! Hope you and the Mrs. will finally be able to proudly entertain your guests during some of the larger looming holiday events of November and December. May you both soon be able to finally put your feet up and enjoy all your hardwork and efforts for years to come!

"The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze. "
- John Updike, September


LOOKING FORWARD TO YOUR RETURN TO WU. MISS YOU!

Mass, you have been in my thoughts lately. I do hope that you and your hubby are ok. Keeping you in my prayers.

Hey Mass!
Just peeking in to see if you've been by.
Thinking of you guys and sending good wishes!


Quoting Proserpina:
Good morning Mass, I hope that you and your husband are ok. I have missed you, and been concerned about you. Thank you for checking in. Hugs.




Good Morning Everyone!

Firstly, I wish to thank all my good WU buddies above who've continued to check in and leave such caring supportive posts on my previous blog, etc. It means a lot.

Sorry it's taken so long for me to respond, but August also posed more unexpected twists and turns while hubby was recovering from his July 24th small stroke and then pneumonia on
August 15th. He suffered a trans-ischemic attack (which is related to a stroke) in the am of Aug. 29th and had to be admitted overnight into our local hospital for more tests and medication changes. The good news is these changes have seemingly done wonders for him. He's far less lethargic in the early am and feels more energetic during the course of the day. He's been diligently working on his speech (pronunciation of words) which remains a bit slurry but is audible and understandable to me, and is using old physical therapy equipment for the strengthening and flexibility of his right hand. Fingers crossed that he continues to improve without further unexpected incidents setting him back. (Although, he became ambitious the other day and, while cutting some hedges outside got stung by a wasp on his right hand). Poor thing had one huge hand but no allergic reaction and it's slowly returning to normal). Can't win for losing! LOL!

I, too, have finally caught up on some much needed rest as well as other personal matters, so I'm finally able to get online to say hello and THANK ALL OF YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND SUPPORT!!! IT'S MUCH APPRECIATED DURING TRYING TIMES!

Additionally and equally, I hope that those of you who may have suffered from Hurricane Issac or that challenging Northeastern cold front, both of which resulted in severe weather damage (major flooding, etc.) to many places a couple weeks ago, are now getting back to normal yourselves. I watched these events on TV and my prayers were with all our WU friends in FL, LA and New England. Fortunately for my specific area of Mass., we only received reasonable rainfall alone! WHEW!

On a closing note, I'm hoping that I'll be able to continue posting here, when time and my computer allows (still suffering from freeze-ups and glitches) but also want to note that a couple dear WU friends have birthdays coming up this week! EMMYROSE - our Pyrate Queen on Weds., Sept. 19th and KAT - on Sept. 24th. Hope each will post on those days for some reminiscently fun banter and musical celebrations!

Again, God Bless you all and I'll try to post on your respective blogsites shortly. Currently, I'm in need of another cup of tea before I start. LOL!
