Supporting my National Parks!

Another beautiful Fall weekend comes to a close.  After a brief debate over where to go, we decided to brave the crowds and visit a nearby National Park! 







Shenandoah National Park is home to Skyline Drive, and is an absolutely beautiful scenic drive.  October is traditionally their busiest month of the year, and thanks to our sad lack of government, the parks had been closed the past two weekends.  We knew it would be mobbed, but decided to go anyway.


Sorry to bore you with so many pictures, but it was just so beautiful!


We even saw some wildlife.



It’s a Bear!








Most of today (Sunday) was spent sewing, but I don’t have anything to show.  I prepped a project for applique, and another for some red work embroidery.  I can’t even show my Christmas QAL finished quilt, because I’m supposed to save it for the big reveal in December.

And now that it’s fall, and the temperatures are getting cooler, it’s soup weather, so I made a big pot of soup for dinner tomorrow night.  Since DH retired last year, he has been the head chef, and I decided to be a good little wife and give him a night off.

Be kind to DH…..Sunny



  1. Loved the pictures....!!!!!
    I don't think I would get that close to a bear to take its photo........
    We are in the tropics but DH and I just put a beef stew in the slow cooker.....sometimes you just have to have comfort food.

  2. Not boring pics at all. Thank goodness we have the national parks. So beautiful. I love soup weather, too.

  3. Oh so beautiful Sunny. Looks likeit was worthwhile fighting the crowds to get there. Imagine seeing the bear too! Sweet of you to make the soup :-) we're starting to move into salads!

  14. Gorgeous, Sunny! Well worth braving the masses! I would have been more afraid of the snake than the bear! Can't wait to see your projects!
