Autumn Leaves

I don't know what's gotten into me, crafting post titles, then setting up a yammer about things not pertaining one whit to the topic. We'll just hope this little jag is short-lived.

You need to run over to Janie's new blog,
This Little Mommy Went to Market..., because I know some of you are interested in her topic and may even have a comment or two to toss into her box, as time wears on.

I'm supposed to be answering a couple of emails from my darling daughter-in-law, but she knows I'm a photo hound and will understand I happened to remember those leaves in the camera, shortly after I sat down here.

I hollered into the other room, "Son3, have you downloaded any photos?"

"No. Why?"

"I didn't want a repeat of the trauma I suffered a couple of mornings ago."

It went okay this time, exceptin' for that little bout with "(Not Responding)." Tell me something I don't know. I'd been staring at the white screen for at least 15 seconds when the little advisory appeared. Do I have Dumb As Dirt on my forehead or something? I'm 'bout up to my gizzard with the computer sticking its tongue out at me. Rude.

Leaves. But I'll be poking them under the flowers label. A girl doesn't want to get too carried away with her labels, and I'm not so keen on the world's scientific classification system anyway. I'm no more animal than the sofa is. Just call me a scientist, and I can happily poke my leaves under the flowers label, simply because it suits my purpose. *brushing hands*

Everyone has them, but can we enjoy too many? ºÜº

For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. ~Isaiah 55:10-12

These pics were great timing for me, as just this morning I was inwardly bemoaning the fact that the Colorado autumns are not nearly the colorfest as what can be found back East, (fewer deciduous trees) and as we always visit in late November, I miss the pretties every year. :)

Beautiful leaves!!! :) I like to have a wacky title for my blog posts, and sometimes they have absolutely nothing to do with what I'm writing about.
Computer problems can be so aggravating...glad you got these pretty leaves downloaded, though. Great verses! Have a great day. :D

I wish I had your beautiful leaves. I'm thinking of gathering & preserving some for table decor for my in-law's 60th anniversary celebration.

And, CarolineNot, don't be jealous of me getting a new computer while you struggle along with your old one. Sure wish you'd get this page fixed. teehee (Ü)

For real? Is the page a mess? *L* I know it's busy, and that kinda makes me twitch, but is it a mess on your monitor (other than being tasteless; *snort*)?

You need to find Morgan in a comment box -- well this one, in fact -- and poke her name. Go from her ID to her blog and see the beautiful box her brother made her. You'll love it.

WOW! That is absolutely gorgeous!! The box.

OOPS!! I didn't mean to insult you about your blog page. Maybe it's supposed to be this way??? The border runs off the sides of the page on my screen. I see what I've determined is parts of leaves & the comical chicken sitting on her nest. But I only see like the tip of her tail & a tiny bit of straw; leaf halves, etc. Other than that, it's great!!! :\
