It's time to say good-bye to all of the harvest decorations until next year. Wow, the time has gone by very quickly.
Autumn wasn't very pretty, in my neck of the woods. The leaves seemed to go from green, to slightly yellow, a bit of reds and oranges, quickly to dry brown, and then just lying there on the lawn and deck, looking pitiful. We left some in the plant beds and vegetable garden for protection and composting purposes, but every thing looks so bare outside. More time to focus on the inside of the house. Yippee!!!!!
That's right, time to decorate for Christmas!!!!! I really wanted to decorate the weekend before Thanksgiving, but it was just too busy and what's the point of rushing the process instead of having fun. So, in keeping with the theme of having fun, I took one day to play with my big girl camera before putting away all of the harvest decorations. I've had the camera for well over a year, but it has been very intimidating. Being a member of the point and shoot camera user group, switching to a digital DSLR has taken some getting used to. Oh yeah! I have no photography training what so ever. So it's not only becoming more familiar with the camera being used in a fully automatic mode (which by the way I have found is a little boring), but being able to use it in a fully manual mode. It's a learning process and I have a long ways to go.
The day before Thanksgiving I spent quite a bit of time walking around the house and taking pictures. This was a very fun day.

There you have it. Some of my decorations for fall, now all packed away as I busily decorate for Christmas. I promise not to wait until Easter to share those decorations. But, Santa's helper is a little behind and must play catch up. So off to my workshop, not that I really have a workshop, I'm really just going to clean up the swath of destruction that I've been creating.
Have a great day!!!!
