Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – October 19, 2016
It seems like the autumn color has been slow returning this year or maybe because I have been ill the last seven months shut indoors I lost track. We just ended having an Indian Summer of sorts temperature-wise. Just the same, it’s arrived here in Exeter New Hampshire and while coming home from an appointment I managed some phone snaps. Bless my husband for being the patient soul he is and making it possible for me to see my most adored season!

Blogs are a wonderful way to connect to people all over the world, and today’s photo is one example of the fun that can result. As I write this, we aren’t yet having riots of color here in Virginia, though there are hints that the best is yet to come.
However, New England is legendary for its fall foliage, and Susan sends us a stunning example that she was kind enough to let me share here. I cropped it a bit so it would fit in the blog format, but otherwise it’s untouched by any digital enhancement. No wonder autumn in New Hampshire is so…

A quick update to share a recent photo from my phone of the first signs of Autumn here in southern New Hampshire. I hope this post finds my fellow bloggers well and tapping away! Life here has settled into a daily rhythm of sorts, I have been ill awhile but finally am bouncing back. We have started the New England tradition of decorating for harvest season, pulling in the last of the gardens, and of course beginning to winterize now that there is a chill in the air evenings. Winter unfortunately is not far off! A big change is in the wind of our life but we will stay positive having learned my husband’s company of many years, one he was supposed to retire in will be prematurely closing it’s doors as of December.
Founded in 1958 this will have a large effect on many families and loved ones and I wish them the best. It’s troubling this is happening at all but also so close to the holidays. It’s not going to be an easy task for a man so close to age 60 to find work again in our area but we will get through it. Possibly the best answer is for my husband to wait out the coldest months, regroup, and begin again come March. A husband home winter could be interesting. It will certainly be the first time in many years. In my lifetime I have become a believer in karma, time will tell.
