Going in every direction...

To the north....

the Adirondack Mountains!

To the west...

West Mountain (an apt name!), a portion which is waiting for snow for skiing, snowboarding and tubing.


To the east...
the mountains of Vermont.

These photos were taken at the end of this week while I was driving kids here and there, all over town and beyond!

Here are some colorful close ups of the trees dotting the mountains on the west side of town.
Imagine looking out of your house to this...
I hope you aren't too sick of the fall photos! It is such a beautiful time of the year here and it passes so quickly. Soon... the leaves will be gone and it will be dismal. Even worse is the snow which will 'grace' our earth here for 3, 4 or 5 looooong, cooooold months!!!! Stay tuned for those photos!

Not only have I have been running in many different directions around town, but even at home too!

Mr. U and I met with our accountant for three hours and now I can say that I know what I am doing!!

.....I think! It is a lot harder than sewing!

And so I headed back to the sewing room to just sit in one place, and I managed to complete a couple of projects.

I finished my Halloween swap ...
but can't show you more yet! It is on its way to my hometown, to Sarah! Funny how that happened!

I also made myself a new messenger bag using a pattern I found at Burdastyle...
Of course, I added some things to the bag, like closures...


and a pocket...
or two...
And the kids have been busy too!

In the kitchen, Sugarbaby created these goodies, oversized peanut butter cookies...
some larger than others...
Nature Boy made us a cake...and he is working on a skeleton from milk jugs....
the directions apparently are on the Family Fun website.

And finally, I have changed my photo on my Blogger profile..
Going for a more sophisticated look (I made it for a swap, but sad I don't have it... just the photos!) and not that of me when I was 5 years old...
