Loving In Fall Again

Our own backyard!

Carrie works Saturdays, so Sunday is our day together. Last Sunday was another nice day, so we decided to go out peeping again. Not as many trees in perfect color, but we made due.

 We had a specific goal to get to with a meandering path to it. There are, to my surprise, a number of public labyrinths in Maine. We went to one of the two in Brunswick. Lots of still green trees around it, though some color was still seen.

 This weekend is a three day weekend for me and because Carrie requested the day off, a three day weekend for her! She took the day off so we could go to the Great Maine Yard Sale at the Cumberland County Fairgrounds. The morning was heavily overcast and cold, so no pictures of nice foliage we saw on the trip out. We spent several hours at the flea market and hit yard sales before and afterwards. I got some great things, including 10 old comics, several old books, four big little books, a cast iron bank, and some Jay Ward character stuffed toys. Carrie found some stuff too, a Ganesha statue, a funky little toy bus, an Archie McPhee mermaid and more.

Sunday morning we found our driveway serving as a turkey buffet. We're not sure what they were eating, but we have been driving over pine cones and acorns a lot recently. After we went off for our weekly groceries, I cleaned out the gutters and swept the driveway. Not that I want to discourage the turkeys, but there was really too much debris accumulating and dirt was getting created from the sand and deteriorating plant material.

Today is another trip day. We don't know where we're going, but I'll bring my camera!
