Can’t Get Enough West Virginia Fall Foliage

Oct
26


Photo taken on Speed Road near Spencer, West Virginia, in Roane County.


Isn’t this gate mysteriously romantic? Wonder where it goes????


From yesterday–this year’s Halloween party prize was a jarful of smiley-face gumballs. The kids guessed how many gumballs were in the jar to win the whole shebang.

So, for this weekend’s Free Book Friday, to win an autographed copy of the Avon Red anthology If This Bed Could Talk by Liz Maverick, Kimberly Dean and Lynn LaFleur (signed), guess how many gumballs were in the jar! (Note: this is a half-gallon jar.)

P.S. I’m going away for the weekend to stay with friends in a CABIN WITH NO ELECTRICITY in Seneca Forest. (No kids. Just grownups. AS IF MY CHILDREN WOULD GO ANYWHERE WITHOUT ELECTRICITY.) I’m going to bake bread in a wood cookstove, freeze my toes off, brave spiders in an outhouse, and pump water from a well. I’m like…a PIONEER!! Or….a lunatic!!!

I’ll report back……..if I survive…….

    I have no clue how many gumballs were in the jar, so best to leave me out of the draw.

    Have a fabulous weekend, Suzanne. Take plenty of great wine and food and you won’t even notice the lack of electricity.

    That photo is absolutely gorgeous. I would love to be walking around that area with all the gorgeous colors. Our leaves have all fallen already and last night we had our first real freeze…meaning it is time to get out the rake and start picking up all those leaves. Somehow I enjoyed those leaves much more when they were on the trees than now while they are lying on the ground waiting to be picked up. It also seems like there are tons more of them in the yard than there were on the trees…hmmm.

    My guess would be 242.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
