Autumn Getaway

We went up to the cottage to check on things this past weekend. We haven't been there for eleven weeks - that's most of the summer! There's just been too much going on here at home lately. It was nice to get away and see the beginnings of the fall colors coming out. I can't believe this is the only picture I took while we were up there and I didn't take this one until right before we left. There were better examples of turning leaves and lots of pumpkins everywhere as the town is preparing for it's Pumpkin Patch Festival next week. And I didn't capture any of it. Dumb!

One night we went to a play at the local summer stock playhouse down near the lake. My family used to go there when we were kids and it really hasn't changed all that much. An hour before the play starts, they have a huge bonfire down by the lake and everyone sits around it sipping hot cocoa or apple cider. It's just like being at camp. It was a great way to spend an autumn evening.

We brought home some of these yummy honey crisp apples and my all-time favorite apple cider donuts from the farm stand. I stopped in at my favorite little vintage shop and they were having an end of the season sale, so I picked up a few goodies there too. Who can resist a sale? I worked on the necklaces for the my daughter's bridesmaids while we were there. I was able to finish them and check that project off my to-do list. The wedding is fast approaching and that list seems to be growing with last minute details. So I'd better go try to tackle some more of it right now.
