Thanksgiving Day

A small lovely gathering,
That started with some outside fun,
Tree fort in progress inspection and create-a-game called rotten apple tossing
and then some inside fun.
Uncle playing and mini Waterford toasting with the apple juice the grandsons had made themselves.
Ending with a magnificent sunset 
and elegant desert.
Lime and Pomegranate tart
{I was all pumpkin baking out from the fall harvest so opted for something very different}
Always so much to be Thankful for.

The backyard Oak shook it's mighty branches and demanded some equal fame time with the front yard Oak.
There will be lots of family fun taking place under, around and maybe even in this beauty over the weekend. I will be a happy Momma.
I hope your weekend is wonderful too.

Color Fixation

I seem to have a slight focus on a certain shade lately.
Not traditionally one of my favorite hues.
that's a really big skein of yarn
 which is turning into this big needle project.
To go along with the small needle project.
Then there is
putting the garden to rest for the winter on the big machine,
while dreaming of what is to come in the spring.
My current favorite 'read'. But all I have done so far is admire the photos. (Don't tell my oldest son)
But really, it all is inspired by this ever changing view from my front porch:
I know. Amazing. Please do not wake me up.
As long as I don't start painting walls or pay a visit to the hair colorist, I think we will be Ok.

Baby Wells is on board with the color theme too.

A Saturday Harley Ride

Up and over the mountain,

to the oh so lovely town of Culpeper,

Wine bars, coffee houses, gourmet deli, unique restaurants and shops. Can't wait to explore again.
a moment to enjoy each other,

and a wonderful bit to eat.

Smoked salmon appetizer at the Hazel River Inn
Then back on the open road heading home, taking in the scenery.

What a great day.
Hope yours was too.
