A Post for MOM!

Yes, Mom, you are getting your very own post today. Hooray! 🙂 The reason is quite simple. You see, I have gone on and on about the beauty of the fall season here in northeastern Ohio, and I have raved about the brilliantly colored leaves on the trees just outside our apartment windows. I’ve even tried to email photos to you so that you get a glimpse of the beauty I peer out on each day. But, you and I both know (Dad, too, I guess) that email has not cooperated and you have yet to enjoy some of our beauty. I know that you, too, are having a beautiful fall, but “ya gotta see this!”  Our apartment is small, and Richard and I keep bumping into each other. Cooking in our tiny kitchen, especially since we keep kosher, is quite a challenge. But when you see these photos you will see the single reason I chose this apartment over a larger apartment that was also available at the time. Richard left the decision up to me, and I have not regretted the choice (mostly.) Enjoy the photos, and remember, they don’t do justice to actually seeing the fall foliage through our windows and walking among the leaves on our many strolls through the apartment complex.

the window beside my desk -- sometimes it is an inspiration, sometimes a distraction!
Outside our bedroom windows!
The Dining Room window!
The Living Room view!
LR and DR together.

That covers every window in our apartment. The following are a few more miscellaneous photos, but all were taken from inside our abode! 🙂

Yes, those are bananas reflected in the glass from our dining room table. I decided to leave it in the photo! 🙂

Mom, I hope you enjoyed the photos. There are hundreds more both from inside our apartment and from our strolls outside. Dad, I hope you enjoyed these shots, too. I don’t mean to leave you out, but this has been an ongoing “Mom-Daughter” conversation. I love you both and am happy to share some of the beauty that graces our lives. 🙂

    1. Thanks Carl. This has been a magnificent autumn here in the north! Glad you enjoyed the photos — especially the yellows with a splash of other color. I agree, the windows make a wonderful frame for the beautiful sights outside. I appreciate you stopping by, as always. 🙂

  1. You are a really super-duper daughter to send your Mom such beautiful pictures. I wish my daughters would do something like that!

    Well done Cecelia , such wonderful colours..like ladies dressed up to go to a ball!

    1. Thanks Patrecia. I am so glad you like the photos. My classes have kept me extremely busy and I have gotten lax in visiting my friends’ blogs. I will try to get around to your place soon. Thanks for stopping by. It is always good to see you.

  2. Oh my goodness! To be surrounded in gold and red and rust at each and every turn — that’s my idea of heaven! I know your mom must love this post! It is so amazing!

    1. Thanks Nancy. Glad you stopped by. I keep wanting to get back to visiting friends’ blogs, but this is proving to be a challenging quarter! I’ll get back to visiting soon. Missing seeing what my blogging friends are up to!

  3. I think it is great that you wrote this post for your mom. It is always nice to see families so close regardless of distance. And I think it is wonderful you chose to share the fall foliage with all of this. I do miss the turning colors that show a start to another season. Thank you for allowing us to get a glimpse through your windows. It is much appreciated!

    1. Thanks for stopping by. It has been a beautiful Autumn here and I’m glad to share it with everyone. I appreciate you stopping by and hope your day is proving to be splendid! 🙂

  4. It is a lovely view. I especially like the tree top photos. And you thought the weather would be bad here 🙂 Sure it gets cold, but that is what makes beautiful fall colors.

    1. 😀 Yes indeed. That is why we took the apartment, small as it is. We are beginning the process of “house hunting” since we are here to stay but one criteria is that we have at least one window with a view! Thanks for stopping by, Elizabeth. Although I have fallen far behind in my blogging activities, I am slowly but surely getting back into the swing of it. 🙂 Have a glorious day!

  5. Isn’t fall in northeast Ohio grand? It makes up for winter, I think.

    Beautiful collection of photos. I would have picked an apartment with that kind of view too. 🙂

    1. Thanks Robin. This fall has been magnificent! And the views from our windows . . . well, you saw! I’m a little nervous about what follows this, but so far we are doing well. Thanks for stopping by.
