Weekend Diary Walking In And Out Of The Woods

Here A Walk There A Walk 

Hi everyone!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  We seemed to be doing a bit of walking for ours.  These walks took us into the woods and also out of the woods.  I'm kind of going in reverse here but I'll start with today's walk which was around an area that skirts lovely neighborhoods, a rose garden and the golf course of The Grove Park Inn. 

It was pretty warm and there was a slight breeze today as we walked. By the time we were done I was really hot and had to change into a cooler top once we were home. You can see the golf course in the background. This was neighborhood walking but I still like to have my walking stick with me. 

The trees are just gorgeous right now and I love to crunch through the leaves as we walk!  The air has that good, earthy Fall smell that I love, also.  Fall is truly my favorite season.

The sky and cloud formations have been really pretty here, also. This was the sky yesterday as we sat outside eating our lunch. We have been so blessed with good weather still for outside eating and I am thankful. It rained while we were eating but our table had an umbrella over it so we were fine. 

On Friday afternoon, we decided to take a drive out to the Burnsville and Barnardsville areas and drive backroads to see the Fall colors and to check out trailheads that the Mr. wants to hike. We had a great time and didn't encounter much traffic at all. I'll tell you, though, the roads were very curvy and my tummy started to feel a bit queasy!

This was cool but also sad. An old abandoned store alongside the road. We pulled over to snap a photo. I hate that old stores like this are closed down. 

We found the trailhead we were looking for. 

I didn't want to hike far as it is a really steep trail, but we did take a few pics.  I'm always thinking about needing photos for the blog!  By the way, the jacket I'm wearing is my first purchase from Thred-Up. I decided to give them a try because I like thrifting and their return policies are much better than Poshmark. You can't make lower offers on prices with Thred-Up, however. The price is the price. But, they do offer sales with markdowns and even free shipping from time to time. I like the jacket and it is a good fit. 

Someday, I will get this man to really smile for our selfies!  He has such a wonderful smile but he never shows it in pictures!!

And, a couple more photos of the beautiful colors to end this post.  It's been a good weekend and I'm so happy that we were able to get outdoors and enjoy some walks and being together. Let me know in the comments what you did for your weekend, OK? Join me again on Friday for a little Friday Fashion and a bit more. I hope your week ahead is wonderful and keep the following scripture in your heart as you go through your week:

“But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth, and it will teach you, or let the fish in the sea inform you.  Which of all these does not know that the hand of the LORD has done this?  In his hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind. Job 12: 7-10

Until Next Time,

I enjoy seeing the beautiful areas where you walk. The photos really highlight how lovely this season is.

What beautiful scenery Debbie, and I really like your floral top and waist bag! That top is just beautiful and seems to be right in step with the gorgeous fall weather! So wonderful to be out in nature!! I have been going to the park here quite often too because I want to enjoy as much of the colors as I can before all the leaves drop. We're pretty close to peak here. Funny about your hubby and the smile! My sons, and now my three grandsons are exactly the same. No toothy grins from any of them, and I'm lucky to get those semi-smiles your husband is featuring here!! Granted, not one of them is a fan of pictures in the first place, but we have this family joke about it because they usually will have me take one shot when they're all together - with their backs to the camera! I have a lot of those in my albums and smile every time I see them!
