Preparations – Picture Fall, day 10

The photo prompt that arrived in the mail today turned out to be slightly ironic for me.  I wanted to check it first thing this morning because I was headed to a lovely place for a special luncheon that I was sure would be filled with all sorts of things indicative of  fall and full of color.  My sister and our best friend and I went to Mason, NH to have lunch at Pickity Place.  Their menu changes monthly, and every time it is spectacular.  Pickity place is surrounded by gorgeous flowers and herbs, and is nestled at an adorable cottage in the woods.  Well worth the trip if you are in the southern New England area.  I thought for sure I’d easily fulfill today’s photo prompt during our visit.  Today’s prompt, however, asked us to find something appealing in our kitchen.  Fall is a season of preparations, many of which traditionally happen in the kitchen.  It also asked us to try to take the photo at a time when the kitchen would be filled with natural light so that we could take the shot without flash.  I was leaving the house early today and knew I wouldn’t be back before all natural light was gone from my kitchen, so I decided to fulfill the prompt with a shot of a morning preparation for the day, my beloved Keurig coffee maker.  Have you seen these babies in action?  No muss, no fuss, great coffee fast. 

I did, of course, take some pretty fall pictures at Pickity Place, after a fabulous meal.  Would you like to see those?  Maybe I’ll put a slideshow of those shots together tomorrow since I don’t have to go to work!  Thanks, Columbus!


  1. The perfect shot for a great start of any day!
    I love your mug, so cute! (I have a pretty good collection of coffee mugs… which reminds me that I need to take pictures of some of them, for my “series”!).

    Do you REALLY need to ask if we want to see the pictures you took at Pickity Place?? Of COURSE we (well, I!) want to see them! 😀

  4. That could be an advertisement for Keurig! Have we talked about Pickity Place before? I’ve never been and have wanted to so bad! My sister and mom have gone a few times.

    • 🙂 Love my Keurig!

      I think we did talk about Pickity – maybe that time we met up at the concert in town. I went there in July, also.

  5. I am very fond of morning coffee, and images of morning coffee in a nice morning light are irresistible. As are fall images. Now I’ll go look at those.

  6. Cozy, as another commenter already wrote, describes this well. 🙂

    My father just got a Keurig. I’d never heard of them before.

    • The Keuring is perfect for me! I’m usually a one-cup girl, and I’m the only one in the house who drinks coffee, so I love not messing with brewing a pot. I only heard about them when a cottage we rented for vacation one year actually had one of these.

  7. I like the name–Pickity Place! It sounds downright quirky and cool. Going to check on your coffee link now. I would love to share a cup of coffee with you. More than a virtual cup.

    • Pickity Place isn’t great just in name. From what I feel I’ve gotten to know about you these few months over the blogs, I bet you’d really love this cottage in the woods! It’d be a great place for coffee and more.
