More scenes of autumn

I am so glad I picked up the camera and snapped these pictures a couple weeks ago.  Within days the leaves were on the ground!   I can now see my neighbor's red barn from the front porch.

There is a feeling of impending winter in the air, which I really don't mind except I still have a dark kitchen!  I never thought that would still be happening so long after the lightening strike.  We're hoping the electrician can at least fix the kitchen lights with the insurance money left, he is to check it out soon.  Thankfully, everything else is back to normal and replacements were all shipped and received.

I just love the way autumn sunlight makes everything a shade of gold and night become... crimson?

Above is one more picture from "Downtown"...

I am listening to Christmas music on Pandora as I write. Yes, I heard parts of the country were expecting snow!  :)

Added clarification:  The deductible is taken from the repair costs, the insurance company ordered most of the new appliances and had them shipped to us (Christopher opted to receive cash for his sound system).

So nice to see your fall pictures! I am looking out at well over a foot of snow, and it is still falling. I'm really not ready for winter yet!! I hope your kitchen lights are up and running soon.

We have at least eight inches of snow and it is still snowing! There are many tree limbs down because it is a heavy, wet snow and the leaves are still on the trees.
I think this would be a good day to listen to Christmas music, too!

Snow? I am pretending that I have not heard any such forecast. Ugh.

Scrumptious photos of autumn in your corner. I like how the red barn is showing up better. I have a little white barn that shows up for six months of the year that I rather enjoy seeing.

Oh you need your lights. Hope that you can get them back asap.

Oil lamps?

I feel your pain. We had a house fire and lost everything. Then came the insurance company......and that is another story.
Best wishes.....

Your fall pictures are pretty. Hope you get the kitchen light working soon. Don't know how you cook without it.

You've had lovely color this year.

Glad you got all your electronics taken care of! Now praying for your kitchen lights!

Where we live we will likely see rain and not snow. We don't usually have any snow before Thanksgiving though it does happen.

Your Fall pictures are beautiful. I hope the electrician fixes your lights very soon. Thanks for sharing.

I ditto the previous comment - I would definitely look into some old-fashioned oil lamps to set around your kitchen. It would give such a warm, homey atmosphere. I would also light a few candles here and there. I LOVE candles this time of year when we have more dark hours ... I even light them in the morning.
