Autumn Splender

As far as weather goes, well im pretty lucky to be living in Western New York, at least this fall.The weather has been outstanding. Here it is the middle of October and the  temp is 77 degrees. and sunny. so ive been trying to take full advantage.  Not only is this  a colorful time of year, but if you love pig roasts and clam bakes..tis the season, and that why i say autumn splendor:)

because we all know whats to follow….. all that white stuff, which i am not a fan of. so  here we go. oh and PS if you thought you were going to see colorful leaves…. im sorry 🙂

one of the best things about this time of year……  people tend to do pig roasts and clam bakes..2 of my most favorite things……

people put hot sauce and butter on theirs.. not me just let me at ’em.

29719783574_4645bdd97e_o

30051967960_2f05485651_o_pe

30313404026_856f47b0ef_o_pe

staying fit……

Well let me start by wishing everyone a happy Autumn, its been rather nice here in Western New York, temps have been in the mid 70’s and mostly sunny. all of our Falls are not this way, so I’m a happy camper at the moment. Makes my drives to and from Buffalo ,NY so much easier.

Things are not going as well as the family would like with my cousin ,so my mind has been preoccupied , and im also trying to stay on top of things ,as i said b4 in my last blog, you must take care of your self, get you flu shot, get your screenings..all of them!!! its so important.

30021320772_3188ebbc8f_o_pe

So now that ive taken care of all of that… i have also joined  our community center, for water aerobics  at the Aquatic center. we are so fortunate to have this beautiful building…here, let me show you….
