Beautiful weather in Illinois

We're having a few days of great weather before cold moves in next week. It was nice enough to play around outside last night. Hope everyone else is having some of the same.

It's beautiful up here by the big city, too...ok, west of the city. But tomorrow afternoon is suppose to bring in some cold weather...and then...boom!!! Sweater Weather! Perfect for decorating, raking, or just enjoying. Your house looks very "spooky" and perfect for the haunted tours in your neck of the woods. :-)

Yep, snow on the way to you. It is here in CO now, but not too cold yet and the trees are beautifully covered with snow. I love winter!

I need to get some photos of ours. I keep it simple, but have red colored spot light illuminating the front of hte house with a red light packlighting the fromt balcony. A pretty neat eery red light. I wonder if it would look better green? I'll get a photo tonoght if it's not stormy.

The nice weather ends this afternoon. :(
