There are two items that I always have with me; my camera and SugarPup. There are times when they are all that keeps boredom at bay. So glad I had them with me today, an appointment for a checkup with a wait that was just too much to bear. I forgot my book and SugarPup is always a willing model! Problem solved.
How do you stay occupied when appointments take longer than expected?
How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~ Maya Angelou
Who can resist the beauty of the flaming red maples?
The parish church where I made confirmation, founded in 1890.
One thing I've always remembered about this NJ village was the celebration of the holidays, it being the weekend immediately following Veteran's Day this tribute brought back many memories of parades, picnics and patriotism.
This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis
The afternoon was spent having lunch with my aunt. Lover of giraffes and new owner of this cute little "Beany Boo" Safari!
It isn't often that I am out and about with my camera in the morning. Lately I'm just not a morning person, when and why that changed is a mystery.
This morning Hubby and I had an early appointment and I managed to get some photograph's in morning light that I seldom have the opportunity to shoot in. It's helps that we're so late in the season, and today is the last day of Daylight savings, making this light available a bit later in the morning. It was very chilly, there was definitely frost on the neighboring lawns, surely signs of things to come!
As we left our appointment, the sun was beginning it's ascent... rising, almost above the trees.

We stopped at our favorite local coffee shop, where we pretty much had the place to ourselves.

Autumn flowers... in the early sunlight, these beautiful flowers caught my attention. Despite the time of the season beauty can still be found in gardens.
I was very surprised to see the Butterfly Bush beginning to bloom again. The leaves were full of dew and very colorful.
As I walked up the path and on to the front steps I was reminded that the season is slowing heading forward and it's time to focus on what lies ahead.
Today I'm feeling a bit more inspired than usual, maybe it's the season... maybe it's the blogs I've reading lately, more than likely it's a combination of both! Have a great weekend!
Wow, 10 months completed and just 2 more to go! Soon it will be time to think about next year's project. I'd love to hear what you are working on and if you have any suggestions for new photography/blog projects let me know! Don't be shy... post your comments.
