Wednesday's Wander to the Wayside: Clearing the camera!

Technically it's still Wednesday, though not for much longer (only thirty more minutes), so I'd better get these photos up. I'm clearing the last of the photos off the camera in preparation for all the Christmas photos! Just a smatter of wandering here and there...






Remember all those pretty fall leaves? Happily, those aren't in my yard!

If you enlarge this, you'll see a big house on the hill. Not old, just a big brick house with lots of land!

Conner is still fascinated with getting in the cage with Oliver. Oliver doesn't think it's near as funny as Conner does.

This is someone's driveway, and I keep saying I'm going to go up it someday to see the house that goes with it. Don't know what it's like when it ices!

I don't know how old this little grocery is, or it's history, but it's on a beautiful, winding, tree lined road on the way to the vet's office, with a little creek on the other side of the street.

Four year old Conner's little school Thanksgiving propram, showing me his leaf of what he's thankful for. The last word is 'toys', I'm thankful for my 'toys'! If you were to enlarge this, you would also see that he's thankful for grandmother and granddad, but mawmaw and pawpaw aren't on there, apparently because they ran out of room.

My contribution to the Thanksgiving dinner: peach cobbler, deviled eggs, fruit salad, pumpkin pies (not from scratch).

Our early and first snow of the season. It was so gorgeous for about an hour, and then was melted by 10am!

This is Oliver's first snow (at least with us), and he wasn't sure what he was supposed to do with it. Notice he's on the grass that has no snow on it!
That's all for this Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by, and thanks to those of you who followed me on the telling of my adoption journey, especially for your nice comments.

I always enjoy your scenic pictures when you take a drive into town. I wish I was going along with you, you could drive and I could gasp at all the pretty scenery. The second picture is really neat with the green grass and the animals grazing. And that long driveway.,...I don't think I could resist driving up it to see what is at the end. I like the little grocery store. Have you ever been in it? It looks neat.
Had to laugh at the picture of Conner in the kennel with Oliver. Thats cute.
Your Thanksgiving food contribution is making my mouth water, it looks so good.
How's your weather right now? We are freezing here. I have decided I don't like the winter very much.

Oh I love all these pictures, but especially the barn behind the black fence and that long driveway - looks quite mysterious with the filtered light/fog?

I always love your pix. I have got to get caught up on your adoption story. I'm still not 100% after being sick but I'm trying.

Oliver looks like such a little character! And, he is beyond cute! He and Lilly would make a precious couple, wouldn't they? Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos. Have a great weekend!

I have this intense urge to jerk Connor out of the cage and climb in with Oliver myself. Wish I could fit.

Who knew that crate training would work for kids as well as dogs?
