Happy birthday to my friend vaklam! I hope you have a fantastic birthday and a wonderful year to come.

This week is Banned Books Week. Learn more here.

I've uploaded new pictures from the last few days. Here are a few of my favorites.

The sun rising during our morning walk:


The lake we pass on our morning walks:


The full moon through the trees:

Tomorrow I will begin my month-long "daily spooky post" routine for the celebration of my favorite month, October. I have enjoyed planning out all of my posts, and I hope you will find them fun! Until then, take care and have a great day.

Then summer fades and passes and October comes. We'll smell smoke then,and feel an unexpected sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation, a sense of sadness and departure.
- Thomas Wolfe

Beautiful photos, especially the lake. I love woodland scenes!

Thank you so much! I'm anxious to take pictures when the fall colors begin to show.

What beautiful pictures, thank you so much for sharing.

Thank you! :)

Gorgeous pics! Also, I'm very excited for your October posts, dear. This season is so magical. :)
Sep. 30th, 2007 06:44 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much - on both counts! It is magical, isn't it? *loves your icon*
Sep. 30th, 2007 03:42 pm (UTC)
Thanks! It's off to a good start.

Thanks, also, for sharing the pictures. They're beautiful. Virginia seems to have settled in nicely. =)

Yay! Happy birthday! I hope the rest of your day is fantastic.

Thanks for the kind words about the pictures! Virginia's definitely made this place her own. She wasn't quite sure what to make of the wild turkeys that run by here every few days, but I think she's just about decided that nothing that silly can be real, so she'll just ignore them until they go away. :)

Oh, WOW - It's so *gorgeous* where you live! Although I have to be honest, I'm such a city girl I'd go nuts in a week out there in the wilderness. ;-)

I hope you are finally feeling better...?

Thank you so much!!! I really love it. I was raised in the city, but somehow it didn't "take." Well, to be honest, I like to have my cake and eat it too, and this seems the best of both worlds: in 15 minutes I have my Starbucks and Barnes & Noble and downtown shops and farmers' market and movie theater, but then again, in 15 minutes I'm home, and have trees and deer and rabbits and peace. :)

Thanks for asking - I am at last feeling better. I was pretty much off of solid food through Friday, but then I woke up and felt remarkably better, and I still do. Thank heavens! I appreciate your good thoughts. I'm sorry I haven't been around quite as much: I'm on the downhill run with Tecumseh now. I've been loving your gorgeous posts.

Your house and location is simply gorgeous!! What a marvelous place to live and write in. I'm so glad that you all are happy there. And Virginia, too. :)

Looking forward to your October posts! It's my favorite month, too!! ♥

Thank you so much! I really liked it here when we came, but now that it's really cool outside, I absolutely adore it! Thanks so much for your kind words.

I'm 90% done with my letter to you, so I should be mailing it soon!

I hope it stays nice and cool there, too. Whenever I think of you, I imagine sweater weather, because that's what feels like Kristi to me. :)

We're coming to your house next vacation!
Sep. 30th, 2007 06:48 pm (UTC)
We have a guest room, and we'd love to have you! :)
Sep. 30th, 2007 06:51 pm (UTC)
Always such lovely photos!
Sep. 30th, 2007 06:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! :)

That first picture with the trees is just gorgeous.
Sep. 30th, 2007 06:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! :)

How lovely! Those views would certainly inspire me to go on walks.
Oct. 1st, 2007 05:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I credit Virginia with motivating me to get out the door *g*, but once we're walking, I'm very glad!
Oct. 1st, 2007 02:41 am (UTC)
Gorgeous! I especially love the sun rise.
Oct. 1st, 2007 05:47 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! :)

Makes me want to go for a walk.
