heading south...

We waited until the sun had set yesterday... 

...and then raided the grand's 'tickle trunk'.

We had deliveries to make...
and decided to go incognito.

We are leaving town for a bit...
and will be missing three of the grand's birthdays and 'trick or treat' day.

So we thought we should deliver a few treats before we left town.

It seems they recognized our 'get-up'...
though I can't imagine why.
Even little Lucy thought it was quite a hoot!

They were happy for the treats...
but can't quite figure out why we are leaving town at such an inopportune time!

The birds are heading south...
in search of warmer climes.
We are following them!

I'll send a postcard or two while we are away.

Enjoy the weekend...


  1. That would be fun to surprise the grands that way. I hope you have a lovely vacation in California. Safe travels to you. Enjoy!

  2. Believe me, if I could get out of Dodge over this particular event, I would! It makes me chuckle, though, to think of the grands' response to your leaving. Of course, they simply can't understand it!

    Have a blast and thank you for these exquisite photos. They almost make me wonder why you'd leave now in the golden days of autumn. November somehow seems more likely, but then aren't you glad that I don't plan your itinerary? LOL!

  3. Have a well deserved break and rest! Blessings on your journey!

  4. So cute - you are most creative Judy! How wonderful for you to be heading to warmer breezes - can't blame you. Safe travels and I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures. Love your postcard posts!

  5. gorgeous views. you have a ball in CA. i've never been ... would love to see it. can't wait to see what you see... so excited!! (:

  6. Enjoy your trip, can't wait to see what photos you post on this adventure!

  7. That sounds like fun! I've only ever been to CA once, and that was just a quick trip to the San Luis Obispo area. I'll be wanting to chat with you on your return, as I have an idea that CA might be a good destination for us in the winter. Bon Voyage!

  8. You are such perfect grandparents!!!! Looking forward to your postcards!!! Have a safe trip....

  9. Hope you make it to my beautiful San Diego.
    Safe travels and I hope we can provide some beautiful weather for you!


  10. If your non-Canadian readers google "tickle trunk" they might get the wrong idea, lol. This is what is meant by a tickle trunk..........there was a Canadian children's show on TV for many years, called "Mr. Dressup", and the host always had a trunk full of dressup clothes which he called his "tickle trunk". I was hoping you would have posted a picture of your costumes, now that would have been a hoot!

  11. You deserve a warm relaxing time read, to share, to walk, to play tennis and enjoy the dining...I'm hoping you left the kitchen behind.
    We will catch up later.

  12. Enjoy your trip! I loved your reference to the "tickle trunk." Brings back memories.
    I love the photo of the birds caught with the light on their wings. Lovely.
