Good Bye Irene !!!

Good Bye Irene ~~
She came in with lots of rain, and fierce wind.
We lost our power but thankfully hubby had the
generator up, and going in no time at all.

This keeps the freezer & refrigerator going
and we can use our well water.

We were well prepared with all
the notice we received.
Also all the battery candles I have
made each and every room
look so warm & cozy.

Our power has now been restored.
Over seven hundred thousand still
with out power in CT.
Untold amounts up and down the East Coast.
Keeping all the crews out there
working in my prayers.
In the daylight we assessed the damage here
on the property and down our road. 
We did loose a few trees in the yard, and
had a few down across the road
but all in all no serious damage.

We are Thankful and considering
ourselves very Lucky & Blessed.
Same with all our Family that is scattered
all over CT, NY, and NJ.
Hope you & yours are all well & safe.
Sending Good Thoughts,
Blessings & Hugs

Three Little PumPkins ~~

"Three Little PumPkins sittin on a fence
trying to make a Dollar out of ninety nine cents. "

Yup got my first real PumPkins of the Season
last Saturday ... right down the road a piece.
Normally cant find any in CT this early but
our neighbor/farm stand guy Tom got them in just for
me ...... almost cause an accident as I screamed
STOP to hubby when I spotted them.
We usually head to PA early Sept
to find my first pickins  but boy am I  happy
to see these cute little orange orbs
sittin in my kitchen. 
I know alot of you aren't ready
yet .... but I so Love the Fall and all
that comes with it.

Today we went down for some fresh picked corn
and he gifted me with this Beauty .....
(the only one he had)
Can ya believe the size of the stalk,
and look at the deep grooves, and I love the tall shape.
I was Giddy I was so Excited, he was way too busy to
give me the scoop ( variety & where it was grown).
As soon as I can I will bring him down some home-made
TreaT ....  Thank him again,  and get the story.


I am counting down the days for a camping 
trip to PA.  Fingers crossed I can make the
Fall Open Houses at my favorite shops.
Visit with my Friends, Purchase some Treasures
and come back with lots of Inspiration & Memories.
Wishing you all the Best of what
Summer has left to offer ~~
