RedSeptember

Gosh fall leaves are pretty...
The virginia creeper we have around our 'bonfire pit' is all an amazing red right now. When the sun shines through it it looks absolutely stunning. I was out taking pictures with a few of my cameras trying to capture it's amazing red beauty...

The weather this year has been pretty crazy. We basically had no summer to speak of and now the last two weeks have been amazing summer weather, now that it's fall. I'm certainly not complaining...I love a nice fall, and would be happy to have even just a nice Halloween. Halloween is the one day of the year that I hope is nice out. I long for the day when Halloween used to be warm enough to go out in just a sweater. Over the years it's gotten colder and colder every year, even one year with a blizzard. Honestly...what the hell? Last year we finally had a nice Halloween, about 60F during the day, maybe slightly cooler, but still sunny and decent out. The night only got down to about 45F. For here in little ol' Manitoba, that's pretty good. I just hope this year will be the same, if not better.

There is a Fuji Instax fall photo contest coming up and I'm quite excited about it. The prize is actually a case of film O.O Now that is something to work hard for! With the film is also the Instax camera of your choice, but that's not quite as super excited as the film, seeing as though I have the camera already =P but the film...oh the film...think of the possibilities with a case of film. I cream my unders at the though of it +giggles+

I'm kicking myself right now more than ever. I had wanted to plant pumpkins this year so that at Halloween we could possibly line them up along the driveway or something. Well, with my awesome memory and all, I forgot to plant them earlier this year, and by the time I remembered it was too late to do it. Now it's that time of year when they would be starting to look crazy fun and with the contest now...I'm wishing more than ever that I had. Imagine the photos I could have taken U.U Gah...Next year for sure I must plant them +Shakes fist at self+ Next year I will plant and have an amazing crop of pumpkins to photograph and eventually carve out for All Hallows Eve.

Still have yet to really decide what costume I want to wear this year, some possibilities but it's such a tough choice! It's feeling hard to top last years skeleton costume for a very classic Halloween costume. Ahhh well...I'll pull something together eventually.

Oh well..
I'll leave it at that for now.
Happy fall days everyone!
