November is here!...

Happy November!

My world is looking very colorful right now! Today I left the house at 11:00 a.m. and didn't return until 4:00 p.m. Did something I haven't done in a long while...I picked a road that I had only been on partway and continued along that road the rest of the way. It was a beautiful road - covered with trees and in part it was paved and other parts were not. I kept turning as I ran out of road - and ended up at a major road - 12A about a mile from Lebanon, New Hampshire.

Drove into Lebanon and went to Borders - I was looking for a certain book - but it wasn't in stock...ended up getting a gorgeous knitting magazine called Simply Knitting. I've only made it through the 2008 calendar that came with it - and already I've found four items that I want to KNIT! The magazine comes from England...

Treated myself to lunch at Friendly's where my friend, Tammy, works. Had a really good fish sandwich with fries and a hot fudge sundae!

Thank you for sharing the beautiful colors. Thanks to the drought down here, we're going straight to brown, nekkid trees.

It's been a long time since I've gone exploring on a road not traveled. I must do that soon.

Sounds like a really nice day. . . and your foliage is far nicer than what we have in Jersey--dang long summer.

Pretty pics! And you bought one of my favorite mags! I make it a point to try and get one each month (even though I am always a month behind) Have you noticed how the days of the week are arranged on the calendar?? Makes good sense to me. I wonder why we do ours like we do. What do you want to make out of this issue?

Now THAT sounds like a great day, thanks for letting us tag along.

I like to do the same thing while riding my motorcycle. Never been on this road, wonder what is around that bend? Then you tied the day off with lunch with a friend - perfect.

Great pic!

Michele sent me and I'm glad she did.

autumn is right up there on my favorite list. although we don't really have a change of seasons in my country, the few times i have gone abroad, i was fortunate to have been able to experience all four seasons. just seeing the myriad of colors that come with each season is awe-inspiring. ;)

michelle says hi! :)

I love the color changes we get around here. And what a nice Unplaned/Planned road trip you had. Funny ... I like to do that once in awhile too. I either find a new short cut or neat places to stop and visit. Have a great weekend, Sara.

Sounds like a wonderful relaxed and adventurous day, Sara! Those trees...Oh My Lordy! Soooo Beautiful.
My favorite part of your lunch was The Hot Fudge!

Michele says HI to you, too!

Enjoy the colors tomorrow morning if you can --- it looks like the storm may be bearing down on your area and the wind and the rain may ruin the foliage:-(
Good luck with the next day or two,]
