Leafing / Leaving...

These pictures were taken last year of our grandson, Trey. 
He was into exploring everything.

A rake was so fascinating!

 Trey this year.

The rake still holds a curiosity.

~~~~~~~~  ***  ~~~~~~~

We've had storm after storm of wind and RAIN!
Then the sun popped out...
what a great time for a long walk!
Street after street, were leaves and trees that
were photo worthy.

Then there were those who 
didn't appreciate the leaves as much I did.

This man kept blowing 
the leaves off the sidewalk.
Only to have the wind would blow them back.
When I walked by he just shook his head.

Even our birdbath was full of leaves.
Just one picture before I took the leafs out.

Well, that's about it for leafing.
Now, for leaving,

I'm going to take a break... 
see you soon!

"I have told you these things, so that you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart!
I have overcome the world."

  1. Dear Christine ... Your little one is precious ... so cute! I love the leaves. It was 70 degrees here yesterday and last evening a cold front blew in. It is cold and feels like winter instead of fall today and will be around for a while. Enjoy your break! Hugs ♥ Teri

  2. Trey ... what a little doll he is. Maybe a master gardener is in his future skills.

    What glorious colors you're having.

    Take care and don't stay gone too long.

  3. I understand the Leaving Part... "leaf me alone... I'm changing".... lol! Sometimes we need to take a bit of a break and as you know I'm in the midst of one myself. (except for visiting from time to time, like now)....

    I too have been enjoying the leaves - we had some beautiful fog this morning. While out waiting for the bus with my son, I was glad I had my camera along. :) Great time for some pics...

  4. It won't be too many years before Trey will be helping you rake your leaves. Or doing it for you! :D We've had a beautiful Fall, but it's just about over and the temps have dropped. My neighbor just came home with a big ol' 10 pt. buck deer tied onto the back of his truck. Another sign of late Fall. Too cold to rake leaves!

  5. I never rake my leaves. I just leave them for mulch. But if I had a cute little helper like Trey, it might be a different story.

    I live not all that far from Bevy and we had fog this morning also. It's still warm here today, but a cold front is coming in tonight and it's supposed to go below freezing.

    Enjoy your break, but please come back. At least to see me turn the calendar page.

  6. I love the leaves! I'm always a bit sad when our neighbors run out and rake every day to rid themselves of the leaves! haha. I think they look beautiful as a blanket on the ground.

  7. Oh that Trey is a treasure! Sweet Guy is on leaf patrol here and manages about 6 bags a week. :)
    Have a beautiful week!

  8. Trey has grown so much... who am I kidding? ALL of our little ones are growing so quickly. A reminder to savor every moment. Enjoy your break, Christine! blessings and hugs ~ tanna

  9. I enjoy walks in the leaves too, and your pictures are beautiful! Little Trey will be a big help in the leaf department soon. He is growing up so quickly!

    I understand your break. Enjoy it! But, just know you will be missed!

  10. Beautiful fall pictures, and gorgeous grandbabies!

  11. Just checking in to say Merry Christmas, Christine. Hope you're doing well, and the family.

  12. With 16 oak trees we have been doing our own share of raking. Love that Trey!

    I wanted to thank you for your kindness and friendship. My wish is that your holiday season is filled with peace, love and joy. May you and yours be blessed with health and happiness in the new year.

  13. Thanks for stopping by my place.... Seems like there are an abundant amount of leaves this year... The shade in the summer sure was nice...so, I won't complain. have a good break..

  14. Just wanted to with you and Tom a belated Merry Christmas, Christine! And the happiest of new years!! blessings ~ tanna
