This time of year is especially beautiful. In the last 48 hours, we've seen a tremendous change of color, so it was wonderful to have another reason to be outside, with our camera, playing around to get the "perfect" shot. The lighting ranged from extraordinary to tricky -- and the photos reflect this range!
The barn shots are held over from a different fall trip, but a spot not too far afield from home base. It fit in nicely with the rest of the photos from our day today, so I decided to include them in the slideshow. Enjoy!
edit: P.S. Some folks are having difficulty with the slideshow ... so here are some of the pictures, to keep frustration to a minimum.

Edit: Thanks to everyone who has emailed me & who has been willing to help out!!!! One of my fellow bloggers, ScrapperJen, actually lives out that way & said she'd keep me posted on any new appeals or needs that these poor animals have!

I don't know exactly how cold it got -- but it was pretty dang chilly! Now I (the exceedingly light sleeper) just have to adjust to the new noise & texture of furnace heat. I'll take the trade off: slightly broken sleep by heat vs. waking to freezing cold house & being miserable. Option A, please.

Yes, it's fall ... and the temperature dropping is just marvelous. I am a huge fan of cooler weather. OUTSIDE. Our furnace is messing with us, and we have no heat. It's not a problem at night, at least not if the temperatures remain in the mid-40's. Just thrown on extra blankets, snug as a bug in a run. During the day, I admit, I am not so thrilled to have to leap from a hot shower into a ice-cold robe ... or to have stiffened fingers struggling on the keyboard ... or to attempt to hand journal on a page with squiggly writing.
It is now just59 degrees in the house. (I seem to recall that one is supposed to keep one's home at 52 degrees or above, to prevent pipes from being damaged, yes?) A bit chilly for me, truth to be told. I've jiggled the furnace panel, which has done the trick in years gone by. Bits and pieces were replaced just 20 months ago, so I doubt it's anything major.
Still...regardless...it's COLD in here! I'm off to see if I need to break the skim of ice in my contact lens case. And to rifle through my recipes to see if I can find the ingredients for some muffins, or something to be baked. And possibly start some laundry, to get the dryer going. *shiver*
