It's Still November

Subbing--that's it. I'll blame my blogging absence on the fact that the calls are finally coming in this year. In fact, I've subbed every school day since the 16th, with tomorrow also scheduled. This run has ranged from Kindergarten and 5th grade to junior and/or senior high math, social studies, and "home ec" classes.

Yes, Thanksgiving is over, but awhile back I told a cousin I would post my "greeter". This bird spent most of November on the breezeway, welcoming all who entered our home via the back door. (The way our house is set up, the front door is rarely used by guests.)
We had a nice Thanksgiving dinner with B's sister, then traveled to my mom's home for another dinner on Friday with my side of the family. We have much to be thankful for!

Sorry, Brad (ford Pear Tree)

In the previous post I said. "We didn't have this much color around our place this year." Today, as I approached the house on my way home from school, this was what I noticed. Okay, so the other trees just dropped their leaves, but this one got all decked out for us!

Terrific Trees

I had a hard time choosing which photo to post on a group blog I'm part of, but finally chose this first one. The others were also possibilities.
Smoochie, Smoochie!
This was from a couple of years ago in Kansas Town Famous for Maple Trees. We didn't have this much color around our place this year.
