The TVM -- Yay for Autumn!!!!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Bought a big box of pumpkin donuts - yum. The weather has rapidly become very chilly around here, bringing the promise/threat of an early winter. Well, I'm going to just enjoy my donuts in peace and wait until it actually starts blizzarding before I sacrifice my flip-flops for snow boots.

Fall storms that bring thunder & lightning. We pretty much have the flash lightning as to fork variety. Every so often there is fork or two thrown in with the flashes.
Had a doosey of a T & L storm last night. As Kor would say "It was glorious" !

Yes Tooks, make a HUGE batch of pumpkin muffins for the party! And bring gallons of cider. :D

Caramel apples always seemed like an Autumn thing to me. I'll bring those.

And we'll need the usual pizza, chips, etc.

Over the weekend I started preparing for Hobbit Day - it's still a little while away, but it'll be here before you know it. I'm writing reviews for all three films in the LOTR trilogy to share on my movie blog.

Also, apple-donuts are a new obsession. I never even knew they existed, but now I can't get enough of them.

Oooo yas. Apples are big in the Fall. There is a large orchard near my house where I buy them by the half bushel. :D

They also sell cider AND apple cider donuts. I will get some for Thor'n.

And speaking of pumpkins....it is about time for all the pumpkins and gourds of all sorts to come around.

Thor'n. I too love those doughnuts. YUM.

Tooks, that orchard looks mighty inviting. Where I live there aren't any, but darned close in WA just over the river. We get all the local varieties at the grocery store, so I don't actually have to travel to one. But I think it would be fun to do some apple picking.

Howdy TVMers!!

Neat videos, Ninui. The local orchard has a fall fest with hayrides, and they have 'pick your own' for lots of fruit. It starts with strawberries in the Spring, then goes to cherries, peaches, apples, and pumpkins. :D

Corn mazes....that is something that is done in the fall.... :D

Howdy TVMers.

Certainly turned chilly here, especially at night and I love it. After the hot of summer, I am ready for some rain and cloudy days and very cool nights where I can snuggle up under the blankies.

Tomorrow is Friday the 13th. Glad I work a mid shift and will be home well before dark sets in and the "who knows what" comes out to play.

*prepares a plate of food made possible by her own credit card* :roll:

Have a great day on the TVM!!

Full Harvest Moon? :Q

Wow, wish I could see it.

Every time something like that happens, they always they always talk about it during the weather, then they say: " But unfortunately you won't be able to see it due to the heavy cloud cover." :angry:

Guess I'll have to settle for finding a pic online. :cry:

Survived Friday the 13th and the harvest moon, which did peek out late last night through clouds. This morning fully overcast. Rain expected, of course, I have errands to run for a few hours this morning, hope I don't get all rained on. ;)

So fall....well apple cider is fall to me, here is a pic I found:

Had a couple of days where summer seemed to return with all the heat and humidity that comes with it.

It's cool again now though. Had some really bad thunderstorms last night. Lost power for about 30 seconds or so. I still have to reset some of my clocks.

It'll probably be months before I manage to get here again, but hello!!! How's things? :-) My daughter is keeping me very busy and away from a computer. :roll: But she's hilarious, which makes up for it. Amazingly, she'll be 18 months old at the end of September! :shock: Not sure how that happened! We've not really introduced her to the delights of Tolkien yet (apart from taking her to hear an Alan Lee talk last year). I've read her a bit of The Hobbit but she wasn't interested and Gollum in the TTT film made her cry. So we'll try again later. :lol:

Maybe she'd like a wee bit of lembas bread heliona. :)

We all like elevensies!

Tooksey.. where did those scrumptious cookies go?? The ginger kitty ones? Om-nom-nom.

The sky was clear here last evening and the moon was big & bright. I wish I could have taken a photo that would have done it justice. It rose huge & orange.

I've got to get on the ball.. or pumpkin. Time to make pumpkin bread. Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin pie. Caramel corn. Oh.. why don't you all just come over for a bonfire?? We'll have s'mores! We have a great place for a bonfire.
