Want to go for a Drive?

 Here it is... the final week in October.  Mom and I headed out this morning in pursuit of a little of the final fall color...  We stopped at our favorite Crossroads restaurant for an early lunch...  chili was ready, so we decided to celebrate that first hard freeze of last night with a bowl of their famous chili and batter dipped cauliflower buds...
 Instead of our usual trip through Amish country, we headed west and back north through what I think is beautiful "fall road."  Of course, the bright blue skies and bright noon sun helped accent the leaves in these hills...
 Huge papery-thin leaves floated across the road, sashaying back and forth to hypnotize us with their final shouts of glory...
 Every tree is just one huge autumn rain away from losing these leaves, and that is as it should be for November's advent...



 We ran by this sign...  How clever and kind of sweet....  It truly makes me think HIgbee must love its children!
Winding our way back home, we talked about future ideas to move some of our garden furniture around...  (It's always way more fun to plan than to actually maneuver...)  Now we are back ready to make some Halloween cupcakes...  Our treat bags are waiting for future little trick-or-treaters, and I am busily trying to wear my three Halloween sweaters during these spooky weekend days...  Have a lovely holiday!
