Sorry I haven't posted for a week. My how time flies.
There's not much happening out here in my neck of the woods. We've had a few visitors. On Sunday in addition to my son and daughter in law visiting, we looked out our front door and saw this handsome creature staring at us.
And on Saturday there was a bad wreck on the interstate and they detoured the traffic from I-77 onto Rt. 21 for over 2 hours. We had constant traffic on our road in front of our house. In addition to the hundreds of cars, we had tractor trailor traffic which we rarely see on our road any more.
We had what I call my 'little alien' visit me over the weekend. I hope you never accidentally bump into this little creature. It hurts! I was doing a little fall cleaning in my blackberry patch when the top of my hand started to sting. I kept searching until I found my 'little alien' under a leaf. It hurts like a wasper sting! I looked him up on the internet and his official name is 'saddleback caterpillar'. Zoom in on him for a closer look, he's weird!
Fall is arriving in spurts here and there at our house. . . this pitcher is old. I believe someone tried to imitate Fiestaware.
My kitchen table sports my peanut and candy corn mixture (which is just about disappeared now) and peanutbutter kisses cookies (which have already disappeared) on top of an old fall placemat.
Fall arrived outside this morning, too. The thermometer on the deck said 40, but the housetops said something different. It's a little blurry, but it sure looks like frost to me.
What have you been up to lately?
