THURSDAY POTPOURRI: A PLETHORA OF CELEBRATIONS…

Good morning!  It is November, and time to bring out some of the memorabilia of the Thanksgiving season, like my pumpkins (and turkey) above.  As usual, my Madeleine doll insists on being the Center of Attention.

In North Dakota, my three step-great-grandchildren (yes, it’s a mouthful) have their own ways of enjoying the season…costumes, etc.  In this shot, Maddix enjoys a spooky backdrop of cobwebs.

At bath time, Lilly was impatient…and started without her sister…

Across the world, Aubrey is still exploring Prague and surrounding countries.  Below, a spread of pumpkins…(Prague)

 

Now let’s skip on over to Copenhagen:  Aubrey & Baylie (roommate):

Back here in our city…Fiona went on job interviews, and brought her game face.  (She got the job!).

Yesterday, I ended my “almost month-long” birthday celebration with this pumpkin cheesecake dessert…after salad, fettuccine, and a mango martini:

Flashing back to the past, I snapped a photo of these framed moments.  My kids and I have a favorite sculpture at the local university where we once took pictures every five years or so, in November.  This one was from November 1984.  It hangs on the wall in my office.  I tried to diminish the glare, and even tried to release them from the frame for the purpose of a better shot.   They are stuck!

How is your autumn unfolding so far?  Come on by and share!

FRIDAY POTPOURRI: CONTINUING A JOURNEY….

Good morning, and welcome to another post spotlighting unique photos.

As most of you know, my second son visited my eldest son in Prague this past week, after spending some time in Spain and Ibiza.

Let’s take a peek at some of the sights.  Left to Right:  Craig, Brett, Aubrey, and Aubrey’s roommate.

FRIDAY POTPOURRI: VISITING PRAGUE VIA PHOTOS, ETC.

Another change-up of the blog header.  I love this woman setting aside time from chores to read a stack of books.

Today I’m also sharing a visit to the Prague area, where my DIL Gabi has captured these images, making me want to go there. 

Let’s start with one of the photos snapped in Praha-Prosek:

I love this close-up, spotlighting those gorgeous leaves:

A path that makes me think of railroad ties…there is a history here, I’m sure.

Intriguing sign:

Check out Craig’s idea of savoring a meal/drink afterwards:

And…back in the states, here is my celebratory lunch on Thursday, after being dismissed from Jury Duty; I had waited around all morning.

Enjoy your weekend.  What are you sharing?
