Zippety doo dah, zippety a......

Such a beautiful day on my back porch.  Having a difficult time getting to work.  It's cool and leaves are falling like crazy.  Love mornings like this and you have to take advantage of them.....they don't last long.

Our trip to Wisconsin couldn't have been better (unless we'd had a truck to haul more).  The weather was perfect -- cool and crisp.  We had one rainy, drizzly day but even that was pleasant.  We just shopped in the drizzle.  We had the fireplace on anytime we were in the house and they had several cozy throws so we could set outside with our coffee and look at Lake Michigan (actually Green Bay).



It's just the most beautiful place and all we had on the agenda was resting, sleeping, eating, sightseeing, antiquing, and more eating.  We stocked our frig so we could eat in when we wanted but we certainly took advantage of the local eateries.....no franchises there!

Mary fixed hot dogs on the grill.....


This was down the street from our house.....downtown Fish Creek....

A park in Egg Harbor.  It also has one of our favorite eateries.....

There are so many hydrangeas and no one is picking them.....

 Me, too.....
 This is one of many lighthouses on the peninsula.  This one is at Peninsula State Park....
 Judy standing in front of the lighthouse....


It was just a wonderful trip and think we all feel revived and renewed (and I needed it).  Managed to find some wonderful things for Leola's Christmas Open House.  Now I have to mark it all and come up with a decorating plan.  Better get busy!

Have a wonderful week!

oh Jan, so. much. fun!!! I need to have David take me up there in the camper next year. I'll have to find out for sure where you went. speaking of hydrangeas. my neighbor has this HUGE bush in her front yard, but hasn't cut any of those fabulous dried blooms. I may have to see if I can help her out!

What a fun time!!! Love all the pics of a wonderful place I will not likely visit any time soon. Thanks for taking us there! A few years ago we were in Asheville at this time of year and I helped myself to the dying blooms on the hydrangea bushes at the hotel. Miraculously, they made it home with us and I have them in a basket in my living room. I remember that great trip whenever I look at them...great souvenirs!
