Friday Randomness


A single, random shot taken at the pumpkin patch last weekend.  Straight out of the camera, I tell ya.  

My daughter is currently in love with this painting. 

I want to hike here next summer...because I already hiked this...yes, I really did. 

I need these...actually the Lucky Stud version.....I could go on and on and on.....

Fall festival time here in Smalltownland this weekend.  Looking forward to good times in a great community.  

Stay warm....it is getting cold here on the farmette.

  1. Your daughter is right to be in love with Seurat, there are a few more painting of his about the same place.

  6. OH!!!! Zion is one of my favorite national parks! It is sooo majestic and yet rather untouched and unknown. I'm very jealous now.

    It was frosty up here, just like James Whitcomb Riley would have liked it with "frost on the pumpkin" and all! Not so great for picking corn though. Now we have to wait for the frost to melt and dry off the corn before we can pick!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Do you remember the board game, Materpiece? I remember as a child looking at the paintings and falling in love with the same one. Those boots are great! Have you ever been to that hiking area before. It looks amazing!

  8. You're a hiker too??! You've just got too much energy... Do you do the rappelling and all that? My brother and his boys are big into mountain climbing, spelunking and such.
    FUN! But I'd rather have my feet on the ground... in the kitchen or sewing room...

  10. Love shots straight outta the box! Nice. Utah looks like a beautiful place to hike. While things are cooling off up there, we're keeping an eye on T.S. Rina. No fun to have tropical weather so late in the season. :(

  21. One of my favorite of Seurat's until we studied it to death in art history class. I can get those boots and take that hike. I have always wanted to visit Zion and Bryce Canyon.

  26. A very cool painting - and I knew it had to be a Sunday before I even saw the title. What an awesome place to hike - onto the bucket list ! I brought my western boots down here to get them fixed - and of course to wear them when we travel up north for Christmas !

    Nice zinnia - end of season stamina.
