Tuesday Tidbits

The interest thus far in my giveaway has been small, but my excitement is BIG after getting the box of goodies ready for shipment. I wrapped each item this morning for a snug fit. There's still time if anyone wants to comment on My 500th Post. A name will be drawn on Saturday morning. 


I stopped by the booth and snapped a few photos to share.









 
  



From the booth I went and checked on my mother. She always looks so nice on Tuesdays because that's the day her hair is washed and styled. A sweetheart of a lady named Mona does hair appointments at the care center, and she does a terrific job week after week.


My next stops were at two shops that had Christmas Open House last weekend. I  wanted to see their Christmas trees and other decorations. It was not disappointing. To my delight there were those acorn ornaments that I searched for last year and couldn't find. I may have missed out on refreshments last weekend, but today's shopping was calm and peaceful.


On the drive home the trees were something to behold. Brillant reds, golds, and yellows were everywhere. Rust and burgundy, too. 


There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the trembling of a leaf. 
-Albert Schweitzer


Every leaf speaks
 bliss to me,
fluttering from the
autumn tree.
-Emily Bronte
