I love it!

 I love it!
Crisp cool mornings.
Mountain views.
 Going on long walks with my sweet husband, all around our little hamlet.
 Past the old dairy...
 " Good Morning, cows"!
"Cold morning, isn't it"?
 Down the lane.
 Admiring this woodshed, and all the cut and split wood, ready for cold snowy days.
I love it!
I love this 'fall' season of my life! 
Each and every day is filled with blessings!

The final count of this year's trick or treaters: 255
They love the full-size candy bars. It's so fun to see how happy the kids are to get a big candy bar. It's once a year. 
I have recently heard of entire neighborhoods that really get into the spirit of the day and have booths set up for chili, nachos, apple cider and donuts, hot dogs, etc.. 
Is this a new thing?  

I love it!

~Attitude of Gratitude :
Thankful for my 'muk~luk' neck warmer. Goodness, gracious, it keeps the cold wind off my neck and keeps me cozy warm during our walks. I had no idea that it would work so effectively! 
~Grateful to be a grandma! We waited 6 looong years to become grandparents. I love 'talking' on the phone to our one Grandbaby.
 He just blabbers on, and nothing he says makes sense (he's just one) but oh, how it fills my heart.
 It is the highlight of our day getting to 'talk' to our Grand! 
I totally get why grandparents just beam when they talk about their Grands!!
~Thankful for my sweet husband and the way that he indulges my 'wish list'. We are compiling our wish list for retirement, and he smiles and agrees with my plans, even if some of them are extravagant..*smile*.


  1. Kerin, that is a lot of chocolate bars! Goodness, I bet your door bell was ringing off the door! Love the fall weather!

  2. Ooooh, I would love to come trick-or-treating to your house {{smiles}} I'm loving the candy that you give out.

    Beautiful pictures, my friend! We had a lovely snow storm the other day. The snow has melted, but it sure made for beautiful pictures :) Hugs to you!

  3. Hi Kerin~

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog, and for your kindness...really does mean the world to me ♡

    I love your beautiful valley...just gorgeous! How special it is that you and your sweetheart walk together each day. I'm so glad that there are still places like that left in this world!

    Grand babies are so wonderful! I'm glad that you are able to talk to your little, even if it's just babbles, those turn into "I love you's" really quick.

    We do trunk-or-treat in our ward, and it's always a huge hit! I think big candy bars are perfect, and you're right, it's only once a year... ;0)

    Hugs and Love,

  4. You too have a great place for walking. I love the fall weather too.
    We don't get any trick or treaters here in the woods.

  5. Kerin, you had about 100 more than we did and I thought we got alot! We are not as nice as you are, they only get the mini bars from us. I love it too and you really have some beauty to look at..Happy Wednesday..xxoJudy

  6. I absolutely love posts with photos of the beauty that is all around us. Taking time to smell the roses :)
    We used to do the same thing, full size candy bars on Halloween. Like you said, it's only once a year and it makes so many children happy. Now that we live in the country instead of a tight neighborhood we haven't had a trick or treater since moving here. I always liked seeing their costumes and seeing them enjoy such a fun evening.
    Have a sweet day, my friend.
    Connie :)

  7. I just love this time of year.
    Yes it's wonderful to be a Grandma :)

    All the best Jan

  8. Love the autumn and the autumn season of my life, too. I never dreamed that this later part of my life would be as sweet as it is, and I am so grateful for it.

  9. I love that you give out full size candy bars. We had a total of 2 trick or treaters lol The only thing I've heard of is the parents handing out cocktails when I lived in Virginia, other than that... nope... no snacks lol


  10. WOW, you have ALOT of trick or treaters.
    If I were to tally the last ten Halloweens,
    I would even hit 100!

    Have not heard of large neighborhood parties,
    sounds fun though. We do have Trunk or Treat here
    at churches and schools.

    Happy Saturday!

    M : )


Thank you for taking time to comment.
It means so much to me, that you've taken a few minutes in your day, to stop by and visit.
I love getting to know you, and having our "chats".
Have a wonderful day.
