Franconia Notch NH

I was pretty surprised to see that Franconia Notch was still mostly green when I was up there this weekend. Hopefully the cold temps from the past couple of nights will help the Fall colors to come along. Here is just a little sample of some color that I saw going through the Notch.

Orne Covered Bridge Coventry VT

Had a wonderful weekend up in the NEK of Vermont. The foliage is a little late this year, but it is coming along nicely in some parts of the NEK.

I visited the Orne Covered Bridge in Coventry on Saturday. It's a pretty covered bridge with a red barn positioned across from it.......makes a lovely composition for photography.

Patriots go 3 and 0 without Tom Brady

It's wonderful to be a New England Patriots Fan. That's all I have to say today. This ten day old linebacker is lucky to have been born in Patriots Nation.

Life is better when you are with your Grandchildren. I'll be seeing Henry later on today as well. I'm off to go to Dads right now. I'm looking forward to my Henry Fix on the way home. :-) It was wonderful to see these two cuties last night.

Ricker Pond VT

Happy First Day of Fall!!! 

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Today is a new day, and I am feeling a little better. Sorry for wigging out yesterday. Sometimes putting your feelings into writing helps you to sort them out I think.

 This is an image I made two years ago at Ricker Pond in VT. I'm so looking forward to seeing the Fall colors this year and to get away from the realities of everyday life for a while.

My Dog Rudy

I've got nothing. I haven't had time to pick up the camera for a few weeks (except for a few pics of the new baby in the hospital). I feel very disonnected and out of sorts. I've been very busy and often times overwhelmed dealing with issues with my Dad. Sometimes life isn't easy and this is one of those times for me. This too shall pass, but for now I'm a bit of an emotional mess. I know that things will settle down soon and I just have to relax and go with the flow. Deep breaths.......

When life gets you down, there's nothing like the love of your dog to keep you grounded. Here is my Rudy. Even though he threw up all over the couch just as I was walking out the door this morning to go to my Dad's (of course he did, right????) he still makes me smile and gives me the unconditional love that we all need.

Thanks for listening to me. I'm usually not a Debbie Downer.....especially on my blog. But I wear my heart on my sleeve......err.......on my keyboard too I guess. :-)
