Tuesday Tidbits #195 October Has Come

I’m Back!

At least I hope I am. Our WiFi… actually it’s our carrier… has not been cooperating. We live in a college town and I feel since the students returned and since our local schools started back to school… it has started becoming an issue. Who knows?

OCTOBER is Here!

Edinboro Lake is my favorite!

Nature is all aglow in October.

The lake was a sheet of glass the other morning! What a beautiful reflection!


Speaking of reflection… this last week we saw a horrific hurricane hit Florida. Hurricane Ian gave my sister and brother in law a scare. Thank goodness they were not at their place as they are snowbirds. It was days before they knew anything. What matters most is that they are okay and their Florida place has some damage but it’s all fixable. Their landscaping is all gone but it can be replanted. It was a stressful week for many Floridians. Many have lost Everything and have lost Friends and Family. I can not even imagine. Prayers are needed for many in Florida. And today as you sit in your home… take time to reflect on what surrounds you. Enjoy your collections, take in the scent of the fall candle burning, listen to the dogs barking and the lawn mowers next door, and most of all enjoy your home. It’s the simple pleasures, folks. Let’s be grateful.

Do you see the kayak?


We have to share our little Get Away to New York. We went to Watkins Glen and Corning New York for a few days. It was about a three hour drive for us with fall colors along the way.

Not quite peak but still so beautiful!
Beauty around every bend.
Even a stop at Cuba Cheese Factory in Cuba, New York.

Our next stop was Watkins Glen State Park which is south of Seneca Lake and is in the area of the Finger Lakes Region. The hike up is full of steps but well worth it. There are falls and water flows in your view the whole time.

Beauty in Nature.
We walked under these falls to go higher up.

Corning Glass Museum

After seeing the falls we headed to the Glass Museum. We enjoyed it very much and went back on a second day. We even saw two glass blowing demonstrations.

It’s always nice to see a Chihuly.

We had family run in the Corning New York Wineglass Marathon. It was a thrill to watch them finish and they finished very well!


Summer’s End

When the boat comes out… summer is officially over. We had a cold morning for pulling out the boat. 38 degrees! The sun rising helped warm things up!

A cold morning.

More Autumn Bliss

Another Fall morning we stood in awe… as the lake was a sheet of glass.
Lakeside Reflection… it was a delight to see!
Fall Fun!
