Fall at the Mill – Out and About

Not much to say.  Just a few pretty pictures from a lovely Fall day.   (Taken Nov 12, 2009)

Kreativ Blogger - The Good, The Bad and The Silly

I would like to thank Lori E. of  Family Trees May Contain Nuts (Don't you just love that name!  What a hoot!) for passing this award along to me.   This is the second time that I have received an award (the first was in my other blog)  and I have to say it was a surprise both times.   I'm still not quite sure why but I don't mind playing.  

  1. I became a mother for the first time on my birthday.
  2. I am very quiet and  I'm fairly certain that I am incapable of yelling.  Just don't have it in me.
  3. Contrary to #2, when I get together with a good friend, I am quite the chatterbox.
  4. One day I hope  to swim with dolphins.  That would be an absolute thrill.
  5. If I wet one hand, I have to wet the other.  I know!  So Silly!  A tad OCD perhaps.  And it doesn't end there.  The daughter mentioned is #1 is the same!
  6. I used to be extremely shy.  But that was then, and this is now.  Not so shy anymore.
  7. Karma is a powerful thing.  I firmly believe that "you get what you give" in life. 
Now I'm supposed to pass this along to seven other bloggers.  Thing is, I did this last week in my other blog and I don't want to inundate anyone so I will wait a little bit to do it.   I hope the blogger bogey man doesn't haul me off to jail!

Exploring My Neighboring Towns - Wrentham

Last week I was out and about enjoying the colors of the season and came upon a little farm in the neighboring town of Wrentham.  Several times I had been tempted to buy my pumpkins from the grocery store (chain) but repeatedly resisted.  It means far more to a local farmer that I buy from them.  So in a very haphazard way I found Adams Farm.  As a matter of fact, I am assuming that I was in Wrentham MA.  Actually factually, I may have been in Cumberland RI.  Either way my intention was well meaning and mission accomplished.  So here are a few pictures from my meandering trip.

Perhaps the farm guard?  He looks like he means business.

Wrentham goats These were some good looking goats.  Look!  A Dalmatian!

Wrentham turkeys These guys were just traipsing along the side of the road.

A horse in the field.  Just doing her thing.

Wrentham horse 1 What a beauty!  If I am not mistaken, she is getting her winter coat.

My Snake Gourd

I may not have had one single tomato sandwich from my garden this summer but I did have this.....

Isn't he sweet?  Just in time for Halloween!
Grown from seed too!
