52 Weeks of Happy - Week 39

Lots of happy moments this week and I tried really hard to take pictures throughout the week.  Thank goodness for cell phone cameras!

On Sunday I traveled down to Salem, MA to the Peabody Essex Museum to visit the special Faberge exhibit that was due to end today.  It was a great way to spend a rainy morning.
Although Salem is most famous for being the sight of the 17th Century witch trials which draws a lot of people to the town, it has a lot more to offer!

 I also managed to finish the pair of socks I've been working on for a while and it's just in time because we had some very chilly mornings this week and I'm sure I will be reaching for my wool socks VERY soon.

Those cool nights and the warm days we've had have really turned on the trees and this is one I quickly snapped.  No photo can truly capture the magic of the colors(or at least one with me pressing the buttons!)

This was definitely the week to be in Maine for leaf-peeping as many of the sugar maples are already dropping their leaves and I think after next weekend, the color will have gone by.  Today was perfect with blue, blue sky and brilliant sunshine.

And finally a truly fabulous dinner at a great restaurant in Portland with some wonderful family members.  I ate beets and loved them which is saying something as I have never liked beets.  If you get to Portland, make a reservation!

Cool nights and warm days, that's what we have here as well. Fortunately no frost yet as there is a rose bush which has just started to bloom again.
Great pictures of your week.

Loved the pics of Salem and the purple socks look just right for Winter!
