A "Real" Country Meal

Last evening we celebrated my DH's upcoming birthday at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Sulphur Wells, KY.  This is a photo from their website.  If you are in the area, and want a country style meal.   This is the place.  We arrived just as a group of people on a tourbus were finishing their meal.  After a short wait, our family enjoyed a great meal complete with homemade pie.  A great way to celebrate a birthday.

We continue to enjoy our time here in the country.  Weather has been frosty in the mornings and many of the leaves are now off the trees and on the ground.  I've worked on a few quilting projects and hope to have photos next week.

It's Fall in the Country

We're spending the fall in the country and I haven't posted for some time.  My laptop has not been cooperating when it comes to Blogger.  I'm giving it a try today.  The scene above is from my front window.  The trees are beautiful today.  It has been a slow year for color and some of the leaves have already fallen.  Colors are better since we had a few nights of cooler weather.  The barn and colorful trees are on the farm across the road from our vacation home.

This is a photo of the decorations on our front porch.  I haven't done much since we are only here for a month or so.  The three ceramic pumpkins are from Old Time Pottery.  I love that store and it just happens to be located next door to Bass Pro.  My DH can go shopping at Bass Pro and I can shop next door.  I will plant the mum on the side of the house before we leave.  I will post a photo of last years mum later if Blogger cooperates.  I planted it last fall before we left and it is beautiful this fall.

Wishing all a Happy Halloween.
