These two were locking horns and making lots of noise.

This is my starter kit. I can hardly wait to try it.
And this is my so very pretty Pysanky that Dianne made. It took her 6 hours. I'm not sure I have that much patience but I'm sure going to try it. Wish me luck. I haven't decided where I am going to put it yet. I have it under my cloche now just to keep it safe. I am so happy with my pretty. Thank you so much Dianne.

Also that I'm sorry I've been absent the last few days. I've had computer problems but they seem to be fixed...hopefully for good. I couldn't connect to the Internet. Do you suppose my computer was trying to tell me something? I will try to catch up with you as soon as I can and see what you have been up to. In the meantime sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
More of Longs Peak. It is so beautiful. If you'd like to learn more about Longs Peak click here.

These were taken as we drove by Black Hawk. It is a gambling town with lots and lots of casinos. Central City is a little further up the the mountain. Central City was the first to become a gambling town and Black Hawk joined in very soon after. There is a famous Opera House in Central City. There is the face on the barroom floor and many tourists come to see her. If you click on Central City and then at the link at the bottom of that page for more information you will be able to see the face. I liked the town better before all the casinos moved in.
The mountain peak you can see in the background is Longs Peak. You'll see more of it later in the drive as we get closer.
That's all for today I hope you enjoyed the beginning of our afternoon.

A ~Aprons--Do you have some? I have loads of vintage aprons. Some that my Grandmother wore. I don't usually wear one but I should because I'm always wiping my hands on my butt.
J ~ Junk Drawer--y/n? Where is it?The proverbial junk drawer...... Yes I have one in the kitchen and it is full of whatever I have in my hand and don't know where to put it or just too lazy to put it where it belongs.
K ~ Kitchen--color and decorating scheme. My kitchen is white walls with natural cabinets. My curtains are white/green/tan. My appliances are all black.
L ~ Love--what is your favorite part of homemaking? I love keeping my home clean and comfortable.
M ~ Mop--y/n? I do my floors on my hands and knees. No mops for me.

I put some fake pumpkins and leaves on my other cake plate for this one. Since I've got both plates filled with fall decorations I guess I won't be making much cake this month. I love decorations I can leave until after Thanksgiving.
