Gotta love this weather

Happy weekend everyone. I hope you are all enjoying some gorgeous Fall weather. It is sunny but crisp here in New Hampshire, around 60 degrees. Perfect weather for leaf peeping and/or apple picking. I did both this afternoon. I didn't pick the apples but I went to an orchard and bought some that were picked yesterday. I have a bagfull of delicious MacIntosh apples ready for eating. Eric and Jessie are coming for dinner tomorrow so it will be a toss up between Apple Pie or Apple Crisp, but I definitely have dessert covered.
The drive to the orchard was really pretty. A lot of the trees are starting to turn here, although it has been peak colors up north. It is so beautiful along these country roads with the sun shining through the yellow and orange colored leaves. In some areas, the boughs of the trees bend over the roads like an archway, and the sun beams through the breaks in the foliage in streaks. I wish I had a better way with words, because I know I am not doing it all justice. I also wish I had brought a camera with me. D U H! This is, by far, my most favorite time of year. I wish it would last longer than a few weeks.
I went to visit my best friend, Rose, yesterday. I want to thank all of you who have asked about her in the last few weeks. The news is better than we originally thought and she is recovering very nicely from surgery. It is still unclear if she will actually need chemo or if she can just have some hits of radiation, her next doctors appointment will probably reveal that bit of news. I won't dwell on all this here but I am so pleased with her progress and just wanted to say thank you for all of your prayers and well wishes.
Last night I went out with a group of friends to a place called Milly's Tavern. It is a really awesome place to just chillout and get hammered. LOL They were serving their own pumpkin ale spiced with cinnamon and they coat the rim of the glasses with cinnamon and sugar. I was reluctant to try it but I have to admit, it wasn't bad. I think the bar tenders just like watching the women licking the edges of their glasses and that's why they were promoting it so much. LMAO Anyway, I had a great time, met some new people, watched a few friends get plastered. I could have done without the band, however. Dang college kids listen to that hard rock stuff where they just scream and yell and you can't make out the words. Head banger noise I guess. Last time I was there they had a jazz band playing and that was enjoyable.
I really need to log off of here and bring the laundry inside. I won't be able to hang the clothes outside for much longer. :-( Taking advantage while I still can.

Sounds like a nice autumn day. It's been raining here since mid morning and on the chilly side. Not sure if the leaves will be very colorful this year...I notice more brown than usual.

Glad to hear your friend is doing well. Will pray that it continues.

I'm glad you've been having a nice weekend, and that your friend Rose is doing well so far.

The leaves have just started to change here, so it will be at least another couple of weeks before I see anything fantastic.

What's wrong with hard rock? LOL

this is by far my most favorite time of the year too
and it's beautiful now with the fall colours! Apple crisp and french vanilla icecream sounds soooo good right about now!
I am also so glad your friend Rose is doing better... will continue to keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

take Jazz over hard rock anyday too :)

Yes, it is beautiful this time of year. It's just a shame that the rain and storms are already here for us so I can't be out enjoying it.
