Harvest Fun

An afternoon at the
"Haunted Hay Maze"
"Pumpkin Patch"!

Walkin' On Sunshine Day 16

"A vigorous five-mile walk
will do more good for an unhappy
but otherwise healthy adult
than all the medicine and psychology in the world."
~Paul Dudley White

Five days left! Anyone still walking on sunshine? :-)

This picture reminded me of the puzzle we worked last year...
an autumn scene from the "Americana" series by Charles Wysocki.

It was a gift from my sweet sister-in-law.

This fall we'll be working on...
downtown Austin from the "Picturing the Past"
series by Rod Chase.

It was a gift from my mother and daddy.
My new Ravensburger "Stow & Go" puzzle mat will come in handy!

Do you like to work puzzles in the fall? :-)
