I love numbers.  They can have such significance.  I especially think it's pretty cool when our calendar dates have repetitive numbers such as today!   Last year was 09-09-09.  The year before was 8-08-08.  Next year Veteran's Day will be 11-11-11.  I wonder if there'll be any kind of extraordinary celebrations next year?   And, what about the last double-digit date that won't occur for another thousand years!!  12-12-12.  Of course, if we believe in the Mayan prophecy that the world will end on 12-21-12, then we don't have to wonder!   

Being the scrapbooker that I am, I plan on creating a layout with the date of 10-10-10.  I also have to create layouts for the last 10 years as well!  It would make a great album to do 12 layouts using the dates of 01-01-01 up through
12-12-12,   Well, that's all I have to say on numbers.

Although today's date is unique, I didn't do anything spectacular.  I just decorated the outside of the house a bit to give it a feel for Autumn.  My daughter and I went to a local farm to pick up a bale of hay as well as some more apples.  We roamed around taking a few pics.  What a gorgeous day it was as well.

Another old building along Hanson Ridge Road in Sanford.  Can you tell I love to take photos of very old buildings?

My Autumn decor (for what it's worth).  This was my project for today.

Thanks for looking, my friends
