I have rediscovered root beer -- A&W diet root beer.
Maybe it's a return to my youth!
Did I tell you that I have a pen pal?
What fun it is getting to know someone the old-fashioned way -- through snail mail!
I really look forward to her letters.
She lives in Wisconsin and sent me this lovely postcard.
She and her DH celebrated their 25th anniversary by visiting her favorite place,
the Village of Ephraim in Door County, Wisconsin.
"Splendid views, shopping"
Looks like a wonderful spot.
I do love mail call!
Isn't it great?!!!
I haven't had much time, but I did sit down
and played with some iPhoto effects on a few of my photos.
I think this one is my favorite so far.
Black and white with some edge burr.
I think I like it because of the doily!
A cold front has arrived and I just finished MY Jack-O-Lantern lapghan.
The other lapghans have found happy homes for Halloween.
There's plenty of room for my toes underneath the lapghan.
I thought I could use this photo someday as a self-portrait of sorts!
A cold front means soup time.
Split pea soup is calling to me, but since I have lentils I'll make lentil soup today.
I did look through the freezer and found a package of chopped turkey.
Turkey vegetable will be later in the week.
It also means good walking weather.
Walk to my village for breakfast or lunch.
A trip to the zoo and the Japanese Garden will definitely be in order.
I wonder if I can get the visits in before the temperature goes back up or
has FALL finally arrived?!!!!
I'll let you know.
Last, because Halloween is just around the corner,
here is another reproduction vintage postcard
from the Halloween Postcard Book by Darling and Company, Seattle.
Wishing you well and a joy filled weekend.
Sending lots of love and light to the lovely Beth
