Barnstorming!

Last night we attended a nearby annual event, Barnstorm, which included live music, dancing, food, a pumpkin-carving contest, and conversation.

Women in the window! There were windows on all four sides of the second floor of this marvelous old barn.

The interior of the second floor was home to the festivities. The small loft above was used decoratively.

The stage, ready for a variety of musical acts.

Three women, three paper lanterns ~ waiting for the music to begin.

A musical beginning. The show was opened with a lively guitar and ukulele number.

Goodnight, Barnstorm! We left early and missed many musical acts, dancing, and the pumpkin judging. Several people brought tents, which were pitched outside the barn for those wanting to sleep over. I opted for my cozy bed at home.

Seasonal fun!

The first snow

To segue from the Halloween posts, here are the pumpkins on the compost heap, surrounded by a dusting of our first snow of the season.

We enjoyed a cozy cuppa in Ralph’s Café, with fat flakes filling the air outside the window.

And so it begins.

Given today’s weather, it’s odd to think that just yesterday Seth took this photo of his shadow in the late afternoon sunshine.

The hordes descend…

Horrified Jack-o-Lantern:

Robin Hood, trying to smile –  but the peanut-butter kiss is preventing it, and …

Who is this stick figure?!?

Pumpkin Lanterns

We carved our pumpkins last night.
