πŸŽƒ πŸ‘» 🍬 Tired of... 🍬 πŸ‘» πŸŽƒ

LOL   This is some HUGE Header, I have, at this moment!   And I was able to crop it, to a posting size.  I never do something like this, with my Header.   But it is a sweet picture, and it's Halloween, and so...  Why not?   -grinnnnn-

Actually, I am getting tired of "Halloween"...   Which is usual.   There is the build up to a holiday, with lots of illustrations to find and decorate for and etc.    After a while, I get tired of it.  -grinnnnnn-

So I hear you!!!!!!!!    Don't start so soon!!!  LOL   How simple is that?????

Soooooo, here comes November.    πŸŽƒ    I had considered grouping November, in with the Autumn months of Sept. and Oct.   But for me, November has a very different vibe than the preceding Autumn months of September and October.   πŸŽƒ    November has much less color of course.   It can be rainy and cold and windy....   πŸŽƒ    Nope, got to come up with a very different "Look" for November.    The 'bridge month,' from now, to Christmas.

πŸπŸŽƒ Monday πŸŽƒπŸ

My favorite Witch ~'Professor Minerva McGonagall'

Do you give out candy for Halloween?

πŸŽƒ

We have, "forever".    But there are no more children in our neighborhood.  There is a small woods, across from the houses, on this street.  Which we love, but which makes it very, very dark at night.


πŸŽƒ

   Kids from the local college used to get dressed up with made-by-them costumes, and it was cute.  But some of the college 'kids' have vandalized our yard, in the past.    And I just don't like opening my door, to unknown 'big' people, anymore.

πŸŽƒ

So, nope, we are not having lights on or answering the door.  I hope you still have little kids, ringing your doorbell.
πŸŽƒ

The younger chickens have now had enough of one of their wing feathers clipped, that they can not fly over the backyard fence.  

πŸ”

This morning, their coop door had not yet been opened, letting them out into the yard and garden area.    So "Blondie" above, who still can 'hop/fly' to the top of the coop, to the high coop fence, did.   And then was stuck there!  LOL

πŸ”

Son talked to her, but would not help her down.  I said he was *mean.*  -grin-   But of course he couldn't!   If he did, that would teach her, that she could do it any time, and she would be "rescued."    πŸ”πŸ”  It's fun, living next to chickens!

πŸ”

Recently I finished my box of "Uncle Ben's" rice.   As everyone knows,  this name and picture are no longer on this rice.   It is now called "Ben's".  ~~~~~    I suppose I should have saved it, and sold it on Ebay.   These will be collectable, as they are no longer being made.  😏

"O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stained
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou may'st rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe;
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruit and flowers."
~William Blake, To Autumn, 1783

πŸπŸ˜‹ A treat! πŸ˜‹πŸ

 Thank You for all the agreeing comments, on my last post .   How lovely, to know, that many, also find a quiet joy, in the coming darker season.

We ate at "The Olde Bryan Inn"...  This building has been here, since 1773!   And has been many things, over all those years.

Along the way, it has acquired a Ghost, of course!  πŸ‘»   But this one is called "The Lady In Green."  ~~~~~~~~    See the upper window, next to the sign...?  That is now a tiny sitting room, with a (bathroom) sink~and~'pottie,' just off of it.   I have tried to make contact with her, in the sitting room.  But sadly, to no avail.   -sigh-

 πŸ

This is one of 3 old fireplaces in the building.  All 3 used to be actually wood burning.  And were delightful.   Sadly now, only the one in the bar area, is wood burning.   These, in a restaurant part, are now gas.   But I must say, they are very, very original looking logs.  Obviously not turned on, when  we were there, due to our daytime warm temps.

This is looking up, over the back of our booth, to the overhead lighting.

A slightly raised eating area....  To the right of our booth.

His Fish And Chips.   We never eat fried food at home.  And I never used to *let* him get this, even when we ate out.   But!  At this point!  I thought...  "Come on!!!!!!!   It's not every day!"   πŸ˜‹

 

My hamburger topped with Swiss cheese and sauteed mushrooms.  With no bun.  Fries, and tomato/lettuce.   Plus ranch dressing.   ~~~~   Sadly, the hamburger itself, was not as good as another restaurant.  I'll get something else, next time.   And yes, they have a Gluten Free menu.
