My October 2018 in Photos

(Somehow the post posted back in time to the 14th, so I updated it to today. Sorry if any of you got this post twice!)

So… here is another installment of a month in photos so you can find out what I’ve been up to! Because obviously blogging hasn’t been something I’ve done much of lately… πŸ˜… (As for November, what I’ve been up to can be summed up in just one sentence: National Novel Writing Month and I’m behind… πŸ€ͺ)

This isn’t all of it – the post was so long, I decided to split it into multiple posts. If you are wondering about these other surprise things, some will be talked about tomorrow and two surprises will be talked about on Wednesday, to save you guys from a post that goes to the moon and back. I’m going to make up for not posting much for two months by burying you guys this week.Β πŸ˜†

When trying to hook up the garden hose, I came across this web. I don’t know how well you can see it, but there are actually two large spiders in the photo. One is in the web and the other is above it.

Here is a close up of the one inside the web. Needless to say, I decided to wait until later to use the hose. πŸ˜† They were gone, web and all, the next day.

Wildflowers!

More wildflowers!

Mushroom! The outside was very hard like plastic. Didn’t expect that.

Two feral cats. There is a feral cat population down the road, and when the neighbor’s dogs got out, these poor kitties must have run down here for safety. I’ve seen them hanging around every once in a while since then.

I think these are azaleas. Which is weird because I thought they were a spring blooming plant…

Other mushrooms I saw over the month! Thought they might look good as a collage to cut down on the already super long length of this post…

We got lost a while back when taking my grandma to the doctor and stumbled upon a Western Sizzlin.

I approve of most of the decor. Some of it I could do without, but I’m going to show the fun stuff first. πŸ™‚ This scarecrow and the one at the top of the page were both from the same place. I put it up there so that the first image people see won’t be the spider…Β πŸ˜†

The bullhorns were cool. It gave the place a very… western feel. Which is to be expected out of a Western Sizzlin… 🀣

My favorite of the bullhorns – sweetheart of the west! 😍

And of course, boots, lassos, and the like.

An old record! I don’t know how well you can read it, but it says, “Gone But Not Forgotten – Patsy Cline / Johnny Horton / Cowboy Copas.” I’ve never heard of the last one.

There were so many things to look at.

And they had so much food. This is actually misleading because on the left is a mirror and it reflects the number of food bars there, making it look like more than there is. This introvert kept avoiding whoever was following me, trying not to get in their way, and once I thought I was going to bump into them, I almost apologized – until I realized it was my own reflection. πŸ˜‚

They had little autumn decorations everywhere. It was lovely.

I was nuts about this one! 🀣

And the western theme was cool.

Me in the mirror. πŸ˜…

The chandelier was made out of antlers. Very crafty and unique, though I doubt they got the antlers from the deer after they dropped the antlers naturally… 😝

A waterfall! Hard to see the water in this image though.

Even more decor.

And even fun decor in the bathroom! I didn’t realize the bathroom stall door was open when I took this – sorry for the reflection of the toilet. πŸ˜… But I like the mirror. Very crafty!

Now for the decor stuff, I didn’t care much for… and I mean that literally. Stuffed.

Yup, there we go. I don’t know what a few of those are. I know the deer. Looks like maybe a fox and a bobcat? 🀨

Let’s end this on a better note. Flowers I saw at during the month that aren’t wildflowers! 😍

Hope to see you tomorrow for the next installment. Hope you all are having a good November thus far. πŸ™‚

  1. I always love seeing things through your lense πŸ™‚ The spiders I could do without but you still make them look pretty hahaha. That western sizzlin is definitely not like any I have seen. I would love to have that antler chandelier! I had to laugh at you almost bumping into “yourself” I have been to places that have the mirrors and thought why is that person following me, when I finally look up, ummmm, it’s my reflection hahahaha πŸ™‚

    • 😊 Aww thanks!

      It had been so long since I’ve been to one that I didn’t know if this was a normal one or not. Neat that it’s unique!

      It is a unique chandelier! 😁

      Hehe I laughed at myself too. 🀣

      πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Glad I’m not alone in that!
