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!
I haven’t had the time or presence of mind to blog. Apologies. I have not even sat at the computer and sold much to afford travel expenses. My son is still severely ill with a bacterial blood infection which invaded his spine and organs and he is being treated with numerous heavy doses of antibiotics which in turn with the infection make him ill also. My mental struggle as a mother watching my child suffer is nothing compared to his physically. His life as he knows it is forever changed if he survives this, which we are told is 50/50 in chance at this point. I am spending every other day traveling from New Hampshire to Maine and back by car or train to his bedside. In a moment of reflection looking out his hospital room window as he lay sleeping I shot the above photo of the older section of Maine Medical Center at sunset, ironically, I last did this having just given birth to him here in 1985. I ache to move back to Portland now to be closer to him and my other two adult children. I wish it was possible as I have no support whatsoever, but this is life and I’m a doer, not a complainer and will deal with it. While I’m not a spiritual person I ask for a prayer for him to just survive.
I need to be here.
Love to all.
The Kancamagus Highway is a 34 mile scenic drive along Rt. 112 in Northern New Hampshire that is known as one of the best Fall Foliage viewing areas in the country.
Next day was our scenic drive through mountain road. This was the main attraction of the whole trip. The railroad scenic drive was for a short time but in car, it included a long time span. As I walked out of the motel, I was surprised to see snow 😦 The sun rays enchanted the entire place. We left the North Conway village at 9.30 am and drove through the Kancamagus Highway for the scenic view of fall foliage 😀
As we drove towards the White Mountains, I was fascinated to see the beautiful fall 😀 Both the sides of the road were covered with dense fall foliage. It was awesome…it reminded me of the scenic beauty that I used to see in films and magazines. Moreover, I felt lucky to see one of nature’s amazing aspects in reality 🙂

Just a little Friday funny while out to wish you all a happy beginning to your weekend. Autumn started out with a chilly bang here weather-wise and now it’s Indian Summer again but I’ll take it and get outside while I can. My “blog-fog” better lift sooner than later. How are you adapting to the daylight savings change here in the states? I fight it by buying brighter light bulbs, oddly enough while out today I discovered everyone else must have the same idea as we could not find any anywhere!
Visiting the mountainous region of New Hampshire is always an enchanting experience full of rich history and things to see!
The second half of my trip included the exploration of North Conway village, located in eastern Carroll county of the state. It was the largest village of the town Conway. The old fashioned station was situated in this town. The village came with numerousshops, hotels & motels, cafes and restaurants. However, the weather didn’t allow me to shop for a long time. The temperature was turning negative 😦 😮 it was drizzling 😦 and the chilled wind messed up everything. I could hardly walk 😦 Thus, we visited few stores.
Soyfire Candle shop was the first shop we visited. This shop was renowned for handmade natural scented candles. Since it was fall season, apple, pumpkin, apple cider etc scented candles (fragrances that were popular during fall) were displayed. in different rows. Apart from these, there were other aromatic candles…
