Monday Day Trip

These trees were beautiful in person.  I was one of probably a thousand people snapping a picture of them on Monday.

I went to the Vermont Country Store in Weston, VT, with my friend Ginnie.  It was quite a long drive just to buy a set of new sheets.  But the VCS does sell clothesline crisp cotton sheets that are worth the trip.  And we had a lovely lunch and a scenic ride, seeing some peak foliage in the mountains.

I do love those cotton sheets!


On a completely unrelated note, check out this creature that was on my living room window:
Fortunately it was on the outside.  Good grief, it's like some kind of alien monster here to explore our planet.  Or, maybe I am over reacting slightly.

The trees are beautiful, Olga. And I too like cotton! As for the alien creature, looks a bit like what we call *stink bugs* around here.

Vermont is so beautiful in the fall - actually, all year round, but especially during fall. Wonderful colors...

Love that scarlet foliage!

I love crisp cotton sheets too.

Looks like an assassin bug...yep, the name says it all.

What beautiful red trees! Just love that photo!
You like cotton sheets? I prefer polyester because they never wrinkle and are smooth to sleep on.
Ah well, to each his own.

Are the bugs getting larger or is it just me? lol

Do you have to iron cotton sheets?? That might turn me off. Your colors are so pretty. Right now we are starting to trurn. Sadly brown is also a color and most of what I saw today.

Our colors in Western Pennsylvania are very spotty because of the huge number of species that grow here. I was in a woods with a lot of maple the day before yesterday and the colors were rather spectacular. Yesterday I was in an oak woods and it looked like July.

Hmmm... that looks almost like a spider. I can't count the legs though.

Definitely an alien life form! I do love the trees. You sure wouldn't see those in Florida or here for that matter. Thanks for sharing them.

Not a stink bug. We have a million of them around my house, and they're all shorter and fatter than that. But I was just thinking ... that thing is nothing compared to the size of some of the bugs you find in Florida!

We have one tree like that in our whole town and it is right in front of our church. It is beautiful. Too bad that bug isn't one that can blend nicely with the scenery. Yes we call it a stink bug too.

I loathe those dippy bugs! Driving me nuts on the screens. Our leaves are falling like mad, too!
