Steadily moving, farther into the year...

I try to *capture* pics of the little birds, scratching for seeds, out on the back patio.  They are precious to watch.  But I don't do so well, with photographing them.    

Another year's bitter sweet, out back.  I love this pic, so I am using it again.

Ahhh yes, it's baking time.  Actually today, I have to make my husband an Apple Pie.  All for himself.  ,-)  Next weekend, I'll make one, for son next door and family.  Then on Thanksgiving, I have to take one, over to other son's home....  For family Thanksgiving dinner.    

And the sad thing is, I hate making Apple Pies.  -moan-  They have to have my home made crust, and it's a wee bit of work.  :-)

This is another year's mantle...  Since I still have Halloween decorations up, and it's really time, to take them down, what to do next???  This Lady Pilgrim, carved by my husband, years ago, fits.  Now I have to find her and dust her off, for this year. 

Just another light-shadow.  When I notice something like this, I run for my camera.  :-)  'Cause they are interesting.  And it's always good, to have some random photos, to post.

All your baking has made me hungry. You sure have been busy. Putting up decorations is fun but taking them down isn't. I think because it's a little sad to see them go since that had brought us so much joy.

I struggle with photographing small birds too - they are so quick. My mom bakes the best apple pies but I have yet to learn how to make a proper crust!

I'm not surprised your sons demand homemade apple pies from you ... your pie looks delicious! I love making pies, and baking in general, but don't do a whole lot of it. I think your photo of the little junko is perfect. I have these sweet little birds digging through the leaves in my yard too, and look just like this - half buried in leaves. One hit the window last week and sat on the window ledge for about an hour. I kept an eye on him until he finally recovered enough to fly again, poor thing. Thank you for showing us your pilgrim lady ... your husband did a wonderful job in the carving ... love this folk art carving. I used to carve when I was younger, but only in relief. Enjoy your Sunday Tessa :) Wendy x

I think they are all beautiful shots. Cozy and inviting and sharing the wonders of a beautiful life.
We should all learn to appreciate the small moments.
