Rainy Day Pumpkin Carving for Halloween :: Friday Feet

Carving Pumpkins for the Fall in Alabama

Pine Needles in Fall

Today was a cloudy, cold, rainy day, something we haven’t seen here in what feels like years. It was a great day to stay inside and get some work done, so eventually, I went outside to take some pics for my Friday Feet post.  If you are not familiar with my Friday post it is just a simple photo of my feet, wherever I happen to be on Friday.  Today, I went for a walk around our house (in the rain) as I usually do later in the afternoon and took this photo below.  I like simple photos.  Photos with only 2 or 3 elements and 2 or 3 colors.  The pine needles have started to fall in large numbers now and these bright tan needles were all over the place.  It gave me a photo with two colors and two subjects.  You can still see a lit bit of green grass beneath the needles hanging on to the 70 degree weather we have had as of late.

If you have a blog, and a camera (doesn’t have to be anything super duper, even a cell phone camera will do) join me in the Friday Feet post.  Just post a photo of where you are and include your feet, then just link over here or leave a comment on this post so we can see your post as well.

Yesterday Deborah and I did our annual carving of our pumpkins.  I won’t tell you which one is Deborah’s but I will say that one of her degrees is in Political Science and she likes to do these fancy jobs.  I am more the fly by the seat of my pants pumpkin carver and just get out the knife and start chopping away.  Anyone else carve a pumpkin recently?  Let me know so I can check it out.

There is another busy weekend planned starting tomorrow and Sunday.  On Saturday I will head out with ARM (Alabama Rural Ministries) to work on a house and then on Sunday our church is hosting their annual trunk or treat.  Have a nice weekend everyone.
