Brown Beauties

This horse was gorgeous, stoic and tall...

on the top of the hill...

so well groomed, his gorgeous tail flows close to the ground!

Posing for pictures....

this guy was curious and friendly!!

and very busy enjoying his lunch!!

I love the fence in these photo's, it just adds a lil something...
don't you think TexWisGirl??

If I had taken this picture a few months ago,
I would have tried to get the pictures without the fence!!

Thanks, T!! Better with it for sure!!

Stuff That Rocks

A Warm Fall Welcome

Hanging the outdoor Pumpkin Flag

Fall Reading, I adore Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

My kinda new Charging Station....Chuck added the cute little knob!!
I love, love, love this!!
The power strip is inside the charging station, only one plug comes out the back and plugs in to the outlet!!
It can charge up to four devices, holds a ton of stuff on top
and that cute little drawer holds all the little headsets and blue tooth devices that I never use!!
Half Price at Frontgate.....this really rocks!!

Banana Cupcakes from the Scone Pony...
there are no words!!

Is it a cookie or is it a brownie...heaven on a plate
and the reason I may never bake again!!

Letters from afar.....
many thanks to Jill at Chillin' With Jill for organizing the Mail Swap
and to my buddy Lisa at Two Bears Farm and the Three Cubs for my wonderful note!!

And last but not least, do you remember my scarf,
several friends asked "how do you wear that"??

That's me "rockin" the scarf,
you can wear it like this...

or like this...

or even like this!!

All the little stringy ribbons are knotted in the middle/back!!

Please stop by Amy's blog, and share all your rockin' stuff!!

Lunch with LouAnn

LouAnn and I grew up together, we were in the same class in 3rd and 4th grade. We graduated from high school together, then we each went our separate ways. She lives in Florida now, I live in New Jersey!! 

It's been 35 years since we have been together, it was wonderful to see her again!!

We had a girls breakfast a few day ago...
and here we had lunch together, just the two of us,
at Sirena Ristorante, Pier Village in Long Branch.

Just in case you are wondering...
I had Pasta Bolognese

LouAnn had the Sea Scallops.
The only thing better then the food was the company!!

There was desert...

The Peach Tart for me...

and LouAnn had this, Banana Bread Pudding!!

We talked for hours and shared lot's of stories and memories!!

Thanks Lou, it was wonderful to see you and I miss you already!!

Turkey Vulture

Showing Off!!

A very large, black bird with a small red featherless head. 

Landing on the roof of a home, right in my neighborhood!!

These are usually seen in open country and dumps.
They are only occasionally seen in urban areas!!

Please stop by to view all the amazing photographs of our feathered friends!!

Fancy Fungi!!

The Daddy-Long-Leg on the right was a bonus...
when I viewed the picture!!

You won't believe how many I found...


Who Knew??

Each of these fungi photographs were taken on the same day in all different locations.
They were spotted as we drove by.

Chuck said I have to wear a blindfold in the car now!!
What's wrong with "him"!!

Another Buck

Spotted on our bike path at Allaire State Park on September 18, 2011.
He was just as curious about me as I was of him!!

Is he not gorgeous??
When Chuck first spotted him he was about ten feet away!!
As I went for the camera he ran off, but only a little!!

I love deer, I mean I really love deer. But ever since I found out Tammy was looking for a buck,
well I think you can sense my excitement to share these with her!!

And after our bike ride as we were driving home, I spotted this...

Egret, in the middle of a field!!

Chuck braved the steep terrain to get me these shots!!

I'm not sure who was more excited but definately not the Egret!!

Tammy has been so supportive of me
and leaves me the sweetest comments!!
Please consider joining in!!

America's Next Top Model!!

We spotted this Ostrich on the back roads in Wall Township, one town over from where we live. Since becoming obsessed with my Nikon, we always take the road less traveled and we always find something amazing!!

This girl had all the right moves...

the runway walk...

the neck swagger...

a pretty blue scarf...

and gorgeous amber eyes!!

Don't you just love the dress she picked!!
