Some randomness

1.  Above is a beautiful Amish home.  Everything about the place seems almost picture perfect.  And it always looks that way, yet I have never seen anyone out working.

2.  Now showing our spider....I wonder how much longer she will be here.  She is getting huge.  This is the topside of her...
And this is the bottom.  This was taken a couple days ago, but she is still here.  But as cool as it is and as windy as it is, I am wondering how much longer she can last.

3.  We had a quick run to Indianapolis the other day.  We did get home the next evening, but somehow I just needed a break from blogging.  But thought I would pop back in with a post.  And may do one or two more....or not.

4.How about a mural...taken through the front was raining.
It was on Wabash Avenue in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Don't you love how there is so much yellow in the fall?   I just love autumn colors.  We did get rain the other day, so I am hoping the leaves will hang on a while.  I don't know if the rain came too late or not.

I am linking to Tanya's Willy Nilly Friday 5.

We drive by that mural frequently, in fact - there's a photo of it on one of my blog posts from a year or so ago, lol.

Beautiful place. Immaculate---why doesn't my place look like that??? haha
Spidee getting fat for sure. I feel kinda like not blogging also. I must be bored. bob has been out digging up the sod so we can plant more flowers. He works so hard so I stayed in today and made Snickerdoodles and read. I like Fall too. My zinnias have been incredible and they are huge and such radiant colors.

Rose, I like the beautiful Amish house. The spiders are scary!

Hi There, What is the latest on your kids and the move? Didn't I read that they may live temporarily with you all for awhile until they sell their home and find another one??? Maybe I missed all of this ---since my blogging is not very good these days.

Great set of pictures... I love those little yellow flowers. SO pretty.

I am way "late" commenting but better late then never.
Great looking Amish home. I've been reading some Amish Murder Mysteries lately so this was kind of fun to see.

Wow your spider is awesome both top & bottom. Have you identified her yet? You can send photos to I believe Bug Guide and they can tell you what it is.

Cool mural as well.
