NNW Hike to
Devil's Den Preserve
Wasn't sure I could do it,
but have been walking and 
thought I would give it a try!
I did it, we hiked for 2 1/4 hours!!!
So beautiful and so close to home.
Another advantage of living here.

Love setting a pretty table,
served from the bar, so not as 
pretty as usual, but love the Fall.

Our Birthday Girl's celebration!
Always fun times with these girls!!!

Such an interesting day,
wind, sun, clouds, chilly...
Had to capture the strange view
outside the family room window.

Nothing like a pig ear
to make Hank happy!


It is that time of year,
Hank is ready to carve pumpkins!

David getting the pumpkins
ready to turn them into 
Jack-o-lanterns...

Julia and David working hard,
their annual tradition.

Happy Halloween!!!

Southern Connecticut 
Modern Quilt Guild
is participating in the 
QuiltCon Charity Quilt Challenge.
Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill has designed
our quilt and we have each been assigned
two quilt blocks.  I had a large and a 
small block.  MQG has told us
what colors we need to use.
Can't wait to see all of our
blocks together and quilted...
