Yesterday I drove up to my daughter's to see them all before I head back to Maine next week. We have had several days of rain and the sky was still very moody. Judi warned me that it was cold up on her Mountain and it had snowed a little but wasn't sticking. 
My trip got off to a rocky start when I noticed that my  air pressure in my rear right tire was showing only 25 on my dash info just as I merged into traffic on interstate 78. So, I had to get off to find a garage. 
When I left home it was about 55 degrees f. A little cool but not jacket wearing, just long sleeves. What a shock to feel the 35 degree temps with a brisk wind when I arrived. We decided to go to Penn's Peak for lunch because it is near by her house and the view up there  can be spectacular in the Fall. It was pretty but very cold! I didn't spend much time out on the observation deck taking pictures!

 Today the sun is shining and at 10am there's a heavy frost on the ground. What a change from a few days ago! I will be leaving the house soon to go food shopping. We need a bag of Halloween candy for the little ones. Our neighborhood has trick or treating from 5 to 6:00. We get fewer children every year. Last year we had four.
Today I will be making pumpkin rolls. Recipe to follow. I've been making them in November for many years. I used to give them away to family and friends but this year I will only make four. Two in the freezer for Roger, one to take to Maine and one to eat now.

Blogger and I continue to struggle. The other day all my comments to all my blog posts disappeared. 😞
And, the race is on to get the house in order and begin the packing up. I met up with several girl friends this last week and I hope to see a couple more this coming week. One more bible study group and one more church service to enjoy. 
Roger is still working on winterizing swimming pools. It's hard to believe that my son is still installing swimming pools! The rain has put them behind.

I received notice that my mail in ballot was recorded. Lots of political excitement and anxiety brewing. 😳 
Take good care. 


  1. The pumpkin recipe sounds delicious.

    I am not looking forward to the real cold weather. .we have eind today that is 25-35 mph...

  2. Your print is way small and hard to read...your photos are ever so pretty! Hope you had a great visit!

  3. Thanks for the heads up! I tried to enlarge it but it's not cooperating.πŸ€”

  4. I'm laughing at 55F being not cool enough for a jacket! I'd be bundled up from head to toe!
