Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat....

and no one is getting fat...
not yet anyway.
Decorating is almost done.
The guys are keeping each other warm...
Cookies are beginning to get made.
Good 'ol St. Nick is keeping a close
eye on everyone, making sure we are
all being good.
One week from tonite we will all be
stuffed from the Christmas Eve dinner,
and will be awaiting the hour for mass,
and if all goes well........
Santa will have been here and joy will blanket our home.
Good night, and sleep tight, for now.

Happy, Happy, Snow, Snow

December 5 -
we all had such fun in the snow today.
We really weren't supposed to get more
than an inch and we got more than three!
Happy! Happy!
Joy! Joy!
It would be so nice if the snow stayed
around for a few days but not to be, says
the weatherman......
but he was wrong once and he can be
just as wrong again!
The heavy, wet snow just makes everything so
shiny and beautiful and magical!
Even the boys were happy to be up
to their bellies in the white stuff.
And Zuzu liked it on her nose, instead!

Happy Halloween....
one came before the other.
This one came first.

And this came the day after...

more of fall

It is such a grand day today,
just before the rain and snow flurries fall.

The maples are a beautiful mesh of
golds and oranges.
So are the last of the marigolds.

And then there's Zu,
all ready to find a stick and play for awhile.
But we must not forget to take our one
and only pumpkin back to the house.
It was the only one we had this year.

Enjoy the beautiful sights of
my world here in Muncy!

Fall into my October

I like to think this is a very special
place on earth, my little patch of heaven here.
Altho' the impatients are alive with color,
it will not last long.
Gnome forcasts rain and snow flurries
thru the night and perhaps thru the
weekend, oh, well, they are sighing their last
breath of the season....

Buddha reminds me there is a little gourd
that needs a home.
All our feathered tennants have left now
and will return to feed off the flower heads thru
the fall and winter months.

It was a good thing that I stopped to capture
our old maple tree by the road before the wind and rain
took away it's beauty.
Enjoy my slice of life today!

Everything under the sun.....or I should say shade

It all starts with a bag of warm,
freshly roasted peanuts.
You may have to wait a few,
but it's very worth the wait.

The North Pole and Santa!

You bet, and you can even

lick the "icy north pole".

Tea Cups anyone?

The world famous Carousel -

do you think you'll be lucky and
catch the brass ring to receive
a free ride!

All made from wood....
but not Ann, at least I don't think she is!

All put away, nice and neat and
waiting for next year's little ones.

Ready and up, up, and away, fly
you to the moon and back....
and tomorrow we're on our way to

A GREAT day to be at............................

KNOEBEL'S for the annual
WEIS Family Picnic!
Great weather!
Great rides!
Great food!
Come back,
you'll see what I mean.....

A Drive on a September Sunday!

It's the middle of september and it feels like fall is coming.

Altho' the trees look green and full, the air is a bit cool.

What could be better than taking it all in on a sunday afternoon
in the month of september!

Hair flying, engine hummin',
a little hand out to the guy passin' by,
jacket zipped up high to avoid the sting of a bug flying into your skin -
you're ready to breath in that clean, fresh country air.

This is life and life is good.

than the blue morning glory

Everyone come and see the sweet cake
made for celebrating the Day!

Patrick, my dear son!

I can think of no one who deserves an
OREO cookie cake for their birthday but you!
Eat it all up now before the big, bad Dad
beats you to it..........................oops, I forgot,
he only likes the original and not the
