A Little Appreciation…

“For those who read, there is more than one world.”
Lowlights & layers Covid safe just in time for Halloween –
Beware of Foilhead!
Our first, cozy fire on a cold autumn night
paired with Chardonnay
I pass by this driveway every day on my walk with Copper,
always admiring how inviting its set up is…

I hope you enjoyed these snippets of my appreciation, and know that I appreciate all of you who continue to pop in and read what’s been on my mind. The last couple of weeks have been tough in some ways, but today is a new day. I hope you’re doing well and wish you a wonderful week.

    1. Thanks so much, Gwen, I appreciate your visits. That driveway always makes me smile and wonder what it’s like when it’s buzzing with chatter and laughter. I had to get a picture and do it discreetly not to show the address either. πŸ™‚

    1. Haha, I know. Like I wrote to Gwen, each time I pass by, I wonder about the energy when it’s buzzing with laughter and chatter. And thanks for your lovely words, Jill. I can’t get swept into all the political banter. It’s so overwhelming, so I think it’s good to offer some light and positivity once in a while. πŸ™‚ Have a good day! πŸ’•

  1. I hope the new day and days to follow are beautiful, leaving behind anything else! 😘
    Ps got to find a way of becoming a foilhead myself but not easy under lockdown! πŸ˜¬πŸ€–πŸ€£πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks, Marina! As to the hair, she came to my house and we sat on the patio, not 6 feet apart, but masked up and as safe as can be. And of course, we washed hands a million times and I had hand sanitizer outside, too. After 9 months, I was ready! πŸ™‚ And I feel better! Many hugs, my friend. xoxoxoxo

      1. You are lucky! Over here we’re under full lockdown and may go out only for food, pharmacy or walk doggies, after sending sms to notify authotities! I may have to teach hubs how to do low&highlights!!!!! 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣
        Many hugs to you! πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—πŸ˜˜πŸ€—

      2. Oh, wow! It’s funny how it’s different all over the world. There are some states in the US where people don’t even wear masks. It’s mind boggling. I was happy that she was making house calls because after 9 months, I was ready! πŸ™‚ Teaching hubby to do lowlights, though, could be an adventure. πŸ˜‰ Hang in there and hugs back again! πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

      3. Oh, an adventure indeed and one I’m not wuite sure I’d risk taking!!! πŸ˜‰πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
        Thank you, my friend!
        Many hugs back and 😘😘😘😘😘😘

    1. You are so right, Balroop, in that appreciation fills our hearts with moments we cherish. I’m glad you enjoyed the pics. And I’m loving these cozy days, but still waiting for the rain. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much, John! I’m glad you enjoyed the pics. I was careful to be discreet while taking that driveway pic. πŸ™‚ And the cozy fires are nice, but we’re patiently waiting for the raindrops to fall.

  2. We’ve had a few driveway happy hours with neighbors, but they were never that fancy! A fire in the fireplace is a true sign of autumn… we had our first one just a few days ago. I’m so grateful that when the installer asked were to place the firebox, I said “butt high.” Best place in the house to stand!

    1. I think we’re all admiring that driveway and I laughed when I read the β€œbutt high!” Sounds logical to me though. I do love the cozy aspect to the cooler weather now. Thanks for chiming in, Janis. 🍁🍁🍁

  3. I enjoyed your photos, Lauren. Hope all is well with you and yours and that you have a good week.
    Do take care…. scary how Covid is surging again, and we’re pretty much in lockdown again. At least there’s a vaccine on the horizon!
    Hugs to you xx

    1. I’m glad you did, Betty. πŸ™‚ All is well here and we’re grateful. I know, scary times. It’s just not over until it’s over. We’re not in lockdown, but back to certain restrictions again, which is fine. We’re not eating out, esp. indoors. We’re just working and sticking close to home. I pray “normal” will arrive sooner than we think. Hope you’re doing okay, too, so stay safe, as well. Many hugs to you, also, and thanks for all your visits today. πŸ’“πŸ’“πŸ’“

  4. I love your slices of life Lauren. That driveway looks so inviting, perfect for gathering with friends for a social distanced meal or cocktail. πŸ™‚ Your foiled hair brings back memories LOL ❀

    1. Thanks, Debby, and I think everyone loved that driveway. And I was so happy to be foilhead, finally, after 9 months! ☺ I’m glad you enjoyed! Stay safe! πŸ§‘πŸ’œπŸ’™

I appreciate your thoughts!
