My Work Window

I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed the changing of seasons into fall as much as I have this year. One of the best things is the view from my work window. Taking a cell phone picture just doesn’t do it justice! Click the pic to enlarge. I love the brilliant, golds, crimsons, oranges, bronzes, and tan leaves, especially in Ann Arbor…the tree city. Tonight is a full, gorgeous harvest moon. October is awesome.

Trip to the orchard


Yesterday, Rosie’s brownie troop had a field trip to the Plymouth Orchard. They learned about how the orchard works, about different types of apples, bee pollination, and took a hayride. We also noshed on fresh donuts and glasses of amazing apple cider. Yum!

Silly pumpkin!

The girls learning about the birds and the bees (I mean, how the bees pollinate the trees)

One of the hay wagons (this is not the one they took a ride on)

They got to pick out pumpkins at the end to decorate at the next troop meeting. Rosie specifically chose the one with “warts” because she wants to make an ugly goblin.

Eating delicious apples makes me happy!

When we got home, Rosie tried on her dollar-store chic witch costume (we spent $3).
