Bits of autumn life lithos past week...

While the temperatures stay mild the colors continue to ramp up.  Each morning I look out my windows and marvel that another tree has seemingly gone from green to yellow or orange or red over night.
One morning I indulged in a bit of latte art.  The cup and saucer was recently bought at a thrift shop for $1.50 just because it is a Pyrex matching pattern called Butterfly Gold. I really need to post about the great Pyrex "thrill of the chase" thing going on here in SLC as well as across America. 
You will laugh...too fun and funny!

I can not resist picking up brightly colored leaves as I walk. Finally figured out how to enjoy them at home.  I also am using mason jars to display Indian corn: I just slip the colorful ears into various sized jars and line them up on the mantel.  After decades of trying to figure out how to put Indian corn out in a manner that shows off the pretty corn patten this mason jar idea/ vase idea totally works!
Last Saturday Bernie and I *finally* did something we had talked about doing for years:  We got up, made coffee, grabbed the morning news paper and a couple of camp chairs and drove four miles over to Millcreek Canyon to read the paper next to the creek. We stopped and got amazing egg Benedict waffles and fruit and yogurt topped waffles from a food truck that makes custom waffles (check them out here:

Isn't one of the best parts of camping having coffee outdoors in the morning? 
Next time we may build a fire and stay there all day.

We were joined be a cute bird that dove into the stream for his breakfast.

The view across the stream from my camp chair! A leaf rainbow of colors!

Sunday Calvin was dedicated at church. I am posting this post from my cell phone using cell phone photos; dedication photos are still in my regular camera. 
But since I am documenting on the fly here, I thought I should mention it in context.

Monday I joined Rachel's Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) group for a trip to a pumpkin patch and farm market.
A corn pit there was great fun.
Making corn angels: Autumn's answer to Winter's snow angels.

I couldn't resist climbing in to the pit myself. So fun, so comfortable! 
Wouldn't mind owning a corn pit myself!
Less messy than a sand box actually!
