Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

This weekend... this is exactly what we did.. we replaced almost ALL of our old windows.. for the exception of the kitchen ( because I want to knock a wall down and lose a door) and the big .. big window in my computer room because it has the original stain glass on top.. and I'm not going to part with it..
It's about 60 degrees in my home and I have yet to turn the heat on.. My "good buddies".. ( dripping with sarcasm) at my oil company are coming tomorrow to clean out my furnace.. oh how I WISH my BIL lived closer.. that's what he does for a living... but.. oh well.. So after it's cleaned and OK'd.. I suppose I'll click that stupid little red switch back on.. UGH!

On a happier note.. cooler air brings changing colors!! and even though the economy is poor.. I've still seen MANY and I mean MANY out of staters driving around NH &VT!! I did it myself.. so I thought I would share just a few pics with you..

This one is in Cornish NH.. it's a nice little town.. some people around where I live would say it's a "rich" little town.. perhaps it is.. but some take it to seriously about being the "best" town to live in... It's quaint.. but I still beg to differ...I LOVE.. LOVE the farm house and all the buildings surrounding it!!

Here is a barn still on the same property .. just closer to the road.. I was actually surprised to see someone has started fixing it up!!


As I turned to the left a little this was another view.. forgive the "cloudiness" of the pictures.. it was rainy and cold.. but as I was driving home from work.. I KNEW I had to stop...

And this is the top of a church that I got through the trees...


Ok.. here's where I went "CRAZY".. this is Newport NH.. the town my SIL and BIL live in.. again.. another rainy dreary day.. but I took this picture as I was driving by...

And this is a picture WHILE I was DRIVING..shhh don't tell anyone...

This is a picture of my actual town on a back road... I love this area.. probably my favorite area of my town..

And NOW.. the moment you have been WAITING for.. a Picture of "ME".. well.. not exactly "ME".. but "Mii"... LOL LOL LOL... My kids laughed so hard.. because they told me that my character indeed looks just like "ME".. Notice how she looks cute from the neck up.. um I seriously have a round face.. and freckles.. and blonde hair with pigtails.. lots of times.. when I started Wii fit.. my character was so cute and slim.. and then I stepped on the scale.. and she Plumped me right up.. THANK YOU FOR THAT... the Makers of NINTENDO.. yeah.. YOU!! I know you can hear me!!! I love the gentle reminder when I step on the scale and it says "THAT'S OBESE"... real CUTE!!... NOT!! However.. I think everyone whose used our wii fit has been told they are OBESE or they have room for Improvement... My goal.. to change the shape of "Mii" and "Me".... ( sorry for the bad pic... got to learn how to take pictures of the TV!!)

Wendy said...

purdy!! I was shocked to see windmills in the mountains behind my brothers house yesterday, lol. An interesting addition to the fall colors. That's awesome about the windows. We replaced our upstairs ones and it's made a HUGE difference. Enjoy your visit with your friendly oil man;)

Oh...the Mii is adorable! And I was really loving the Fall pics! Your part of the country is gorgeous!!!

Cris said...

Oh that was SOOOoooOOO wrong and you know it! LOL LOL!

I do love all of the pictures you took. The leaves changing color is the only thing I love about fall. (I could do without the cold weather LOL)

The pictures of your daughter turned out AWESOME! She is very beautiful and so are the pictures. :)

Absolutely beautiful! I can see that you share the same enjoyment of pastoral scenes and old barns that dh and I do. When we lived in Oregon we'd drive the backroads looking for beautiful old barns like the one in your photo.

Lovely photos.

Awe, you are cute=)

I cannot get a MIL to look like me, but the one of my son is hilariously similar, and so cute!

I am so sad my plan to visit NH this Fall isn't gonna work, because it is a BEAUTIFUL place!

Elizabeth said...

Oh I wish I could take pictures like you! I'm tagging you. I want everyone to see those! Instructions on my blog.

Christina said...

I've noticed lots of blogs have pictures of the fall on them today. Mine included. Your fall is better than mine. Love the reds and oranges!

Krystyn said...

I love the fall colors. They are my favorite. The picture you took while you were driving rocks!

And, I just love your Mii! Cracked me up!

RabbleRowser said...

Thanks, FF, for a very thoughtful and personal post about forgiveness. I have been gathering information and stories from a bunch of folks and will pass all this along to George when I talk to him next. I will also pray for you and your parents. You seem to still have a lot of anger yet. Hang in there . . . and keep seeking Jesus for your peace. You're on the right road. God Bless! BTW - the pics are awesome and your daughter is a doll!

Karen said...

My two cents -- I agree those pics are gorgeous. I wish fall looked like that around here.

Tam said...

LOL LOL LOL YOU CRACK ME UP AND I TOTALLY KNEW YOU WERE UP TO SOMETHING LIKE THAT!

Karen said...

Tracey said...

Ok...number ONE-you didn't throw the old windows away did you? *gasps in mock horror*-Us "junky" people love to "repurpose" old windows...sooo if you don't want us to suffer physical pain *wink* don't tell us you would even thought about throwing old windows out!!
number TWO-we only have two colors in the changing seasons here....It is either green or brown! that's it...no in between...sooo I suffer from great jealousy over the B-EEE-A-Utiful colors!!
number THREE-I like your Wii U!

Hugs!

Crossroads Cottage said...

Wow - you really live in a beautiful area. Love all of the rolling hills filled with fall foliage. I'm jealous as Indiana is so darn flat, although we do have beautiful fall leaves so I should be greatful for that. :)
