Golden Days of Autumn

Happy weekend, everybody! It has been a looong week, and I'm looking forward to catching up on some sleep. I'm also excited about maybe getting out of the house with my camera if I feel well enough. I took this photo about the same time last year, and I can't wait till the trees are all golden and dappled in sunlight again. There are just a few trees beginning to turn here and there now.

By the way, this photo is SOOC, and I have no idea how I managed to get such good contrast and color considering the camera I used tends to produce images that are pretty faded and grainy, even more so than my other film cameras. It must have been kismet. :)

I've also got some closets that need cleaning out, and as boring as that may sound to some, I'm actually really excited about it. I've been giving away lots of things to Good Will and reorganizing. It feels so good to get rid of things I've held on to for years, and I mean years. Before we move again, I'm determined to lighten my load, or at least make sure that everything coming with us to the new house is truly loved and/or needed.

Now I'm off to find something delicious for second breakfast. Hope everyone has a gorgeous weekend! xo, Mary


  1. Ah...kismet. Either I need a new camera, or I'm just not finding the kismet :)

    Hope you enjoyed de-cluttering...feels so good, right?

    We had our thanksgiving weekend here in Canada-land so I'm in the middle of a turkey-coma. Ugh. Why are feasts always so irresistible?!

  2. We cleaned out the utility room in the basement--which houses all of my Christmas decorations! They were in multiple bins but I consolidated everything into one large container.

    So have you officially decided to move? If so, YAY! We're hoping we can, but it all depends on the home prices in our 'hood.

    1. Oh, we haven't found a house yet...that could take a while. Last time it took us almost a whole year! But I'm trying to get things ready because you never know. :)

  3. What a gorgeous shot! I'm still sad about the end of summer, but these great fall colors are making it a little better :)

  4. What a gorgeous photo! I just wish those leaves would stick around for more than a couple of weeks. (PS Are you moving?)
