Catching a picture of Fall foliage in a rear view mirror (because I had thought this would be a verrrry clever title for a post, but, obviously, needed a picture to make it work) was much harder than I anticipated. 

After trying unsuccessfully to get the picture in the mirror on my side of the car, I found out that the view/angle was better in the one on Hubby’s side.  But, of course, in order to take one over there, I had to ask him to hold the steering wheel at the bottom in order for me to have a clear shot, while I rested the camera on his shoulder and took the picture.  I think (no, I’m sure!) he got a little tired of the request, because I took many.  Unfortunately, afterwards, when I looked at the pictures, most of them, while colorful, showed how dirty the mirror was … somewhat distracting.  So, I’ve used these because they are the most colorful of those that didn’t show how dirty the mirror was!

    Hi, Cheryl — So nice to have such a nice greeting on my return! It’s nice to BE home. We slept long and hard last night — there’s nothing like your own bed.

    Donna — Thank you! We did have a wonderful time. Glad you like the pictures, because I had to take alot of guff from Hubby to get them. 🙂

    Welcome back! I’ve been taking a number of those rearview mirror shots lately too and it is difficult to get them to turn out as I’d like. Nice offering there, my friend. 🙂

  5. Sandra says:

    Thank you, Hilary! It’s wonderful to BE back. I’ve missed you and all my blogging friends. 🙂

    Your pictures are beautiful, and it sounds like you have a verrrrry patient husband 🙂

    You mentioned something about having a good, dark, moist chocolate cake recipe. Please, please, please send it my way! I would love it! (Or maybe you’ll just have to make it and blog about it 😉 Evil thought, you can thank me later.) Thanks, Sandra.

    Great rear-view mirror shots, those are very tricky to get right. Lovely fall colors in these.

    Welcome back hope you had a great vacation!

  8. Amy O says:

    I’m so glad you are back. You have been missed. I hope your vacation was wonderful. Awesome pictures and what a great idea!

  9. Sandra says:

    Lynn — Welllll, I’m not sure patient is the word I would choose. I think maybe tolerant is a better word! (He is a good guy, and he DOES humor me when I get an idea.)

    Yes, I’ll send you the recipe. There’s no reason why we can’t BOTH do a post on it. 🙂

    Margaret — They were trickier than I had imagined. I’ll be posting some tomorrow that have alot more color in them that I DIDN’T manage to get in the mirror. 🙂

    Amy — Thank you. But part of what’s fun about going on vacation, is coming back! I love home. 🙂

  10. Chrissy Witt says:

    Ah-ha! I have missed you!!! I love these pics, dirty mirror? Are you serious? I don’t see any finger prints or tongue prints!!! Glad to have you back, hope your trip was amazing!

  11. C says:

    And, indeed, it is a clever idea! C

  12. Sandra says:

    Chrissy — Spoken like the mother of small children! When you are my age you sometimes forget how dirty things can get when there are children around all the time. So, no, there weren’t any finger or tongue prints, just road dirt mixed with rain. I’ll stop complaining. 🙂

    Thank you for missing me. It’s so nice to be missed, and I missed you too! The trip was wonderful. You’ll be hearing about it for quite a while. My relatives in Georgia were particularly helpful in telling me some fun stories from their lives that I’ll be sharing.

    C — Thank you. I love to work at “clever”. 🙂

  13. C. Beth says:

    Oh, these really are beautiful! And what a sweet husband you have, to be so accomodating!

  14. C. Beth says:

    (Forgive the “accommodating” misspelling up there.)

  15. Sandra says:

    Beth — Wellll, yes he did put up with me taking those pictures, but he was definitely happier when I was done! 🙂
