Riding Along in My Automobile



The last bits of color are clinging to the trees.  
Fall is on the cusp of winter, in these parts.  



The extended weather forecast has some ice arriving around the first days of December.  
It will be interesting to see if the season changes that drastically.  



For now, we continue to enjoy some pleasant days and chilly nights.  
Perfection, as far I can tell. 


"When the seasons shift, even the subtle beginning, the scent of a promised change, I feel something stir inside me.  Hopefulness?  Gratitude?  Openness?  Whatever it is, it's welcome."

  1. Well I hope it's only a frost. I would rather be in a tornado than an ice storm. It is turning quickly there too, though no frost yet.

  2. I love how that curtain is still hanging in the window of that apparently abandoned cabin. It's pouring rain here and half the leaves are down.. kind of a mess. Not a fan of winter. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Teresa, winter is the calm before the softball storm for us. A bit of quiet and rest! As a teacher I also look forward to a few snow days :)

  3. We are due for storms, and lots of rain. We need it, but I am oh so tired of severe weather. Frost actually sounds nice.

    1. I have to confess that the picture was quite lopsided and I have been so preoccupied with getting it level that I barely noticed the curtain!

  6. I love that second picture. There's just something about old buildings. We have been promised our first real snow storm in two years tonight. It's getting cold outside and rain is turning to sleet. I'm excited, hoping to get some relief from the drought.

  12. It was the title of your post that caught my eye. All I could hear was Chuck Berry singing the lyrics in my head.
    Riding along in my automobile
    My baby beside me at the wheel
    I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile
    My curiosity runnin' wild
    Crusin' and playin' the radio
    With no particular place to go

    1. Andy, those lyrics apply in this case. My baby was at the wheel and we had no particular place to go!

  13. Thanks Michelle for sharing the last lingering leaves of your fall, mine are long gone. The brown barn and the abandoned house complete with curtains in the window are a treat. I hope that you return again. Tom

  15. ahhh, Mr. Chuck Berry...a huge love of my life during the 50's....I still listen to his music.
    It's cold here at night and early mornings, warming up to the 60's some days. I dread winter this year, for some reason...usually love it but it could be that I had a Franklin fireplace in the old house and loved building fires...no fireplace in the Summer house....

  16. I haven't looked at the forecast that far ahead, but now I think I'd better!

  22. Such a beautiful landscape you have! and yes, I think it's about to become winter here pretty soon as well. The title of your post reminds me of the song by the same name...now I've got it in my head :)))

  26. Lovely photos, Michelle.It still looks so green there! We are getting snow this evening--Denver may get up to a foot, or more! Now it feels like winter but I'm ready for it as we had a nice long autumn,

  27. Nice mix of color in the first one depicting the changing seasons. Sometimes we don't accept it getting colder but there's always Christmas to look forward to.
