The Trees the leaves…oh the loveliness

We have had an exceptional Autumn.  i cant complain at all, of course that has all changed , this past week Father Winter has been tapping at our door. the wind and the rain,and the cold temps are here to stay…at least for the next well 6 months.         So i took advantage,when i could and got out there. so here we go….

this was in Our Historic Cemetery.





moving on
most of you know i collect benches:)





i just liked the orange reflection .
went over to the local farmers market, i loved that i found this with the vine still attached
see the “goose” squash 🙂


no one can take just 1 pumpkin home:)



 this market has animals for the children to feed and pet…  well these guys were really on the hunt for  handouts. i was lucky that day, the bus loads  hadn’t arrived yet.



well my feet were getting cold…and wet. so i decided to call it a day

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.
this is our friend who invited us.. hes friends with the people who put this event on every year, no charge!!!
there were people from all walks of life there, but they all had one thing in common….


this woman…  actually made all that sausage, and smoked them. and yes they were deeeelish.
this is the hubby of the woman above, its not their part either, but he was help with the clams. nothing like good friends.


there was even live entertainment. and they were awesome.


i made a friend. 6 week  rescue.
and of course there was plenty of cheer to go around



its almost time.
 these were all shot with my iPhone. .people tend to get a little crazy when they dont know you and your flashing a camera around 🙂
what we were all waiting for … omg… it was deelish !!!
i tried so hard to get a shot of the husband and wife that put this shindig was near impossible, this is the best i could do and they aren’t even standing together, hubby is was over with his hand to his face. almost like he knew i was aiming for him….
they had all kinds of activities for kids. they even had an art table.
and i got  Steves back too… Him and His Wife Amy. If there was ever a prize for being the most gracious Host and Hostess , they would certainly win!!!

if you stopped by, thank you.

Autumn prevails

We have been so fortunate this year with our weather, here in New York. a fab summer, and so far Fall has been exceptional. so i took advantage the other day ..we were in the mid 70’s and sunny, so come along with me as i stroll through my village and see whats going on.

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.


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….

they also have child care, and this is the outside of the little playground for the little people 
this is where the older “community” gathers.  as thy offer field trips, and also serve lunch, and they have card games as well
ok, let me get into my locker room
another part of the center, they have covered everything



yes thats my legs, the current pool is too rough to go with out water shoes.

the current channel
try walking against that current ..its not as easy as it looks or sounds
heres the little guppies, they have classes for all ages and at all levels, i actually got to see this class, they have been coming for a while.
class will be starting soon


and when its all said and done.. about an hour… you can go take a nice hot soak .
they also have free days where parent can bring the kiddies to go swimming. it really is an amazing place..and to have it right in my backyard..
 its all so affordable, i was very surprized.

well that pretty much sums up what ive been doing 2 times a week, trying to keep my mind busy and getting fit at the same time:).

the center along with the town also have a fantastic concert  series, for a few dollars, some times for free.

thanks for stopping by. have a wonderful rest of the week… and HEY…if its time for you to get an annual ..DO IT!!!!!!
