Fall is in the air!

Jenny is excited because our neighbor’s apple tree is dropping apples off in our back yard. Angie knows that the mornings and evenings are getting cooler… and for a week now they have asked me when we are going to put up Fall and Halloween decorations. I told them not till this weekend, but today was just too beautiful and sunny and so I caved in, and today Angie and I repotted our Fall Mums and some Fall/Winter Kale plants. We got everything cleaned and dusted and started putting up all the Halloween decorations. I have friends who ask me why I keep going to all that work to put up decorations for every season, but if only they could see my granddaughter’s eyes light up as they pull the decorations out of the box and then help me find the perfect spot for it, then they would probably do the same themselves.

Yes, with each Halloween night light, spider or pumpkin, they would give a loud cheer and say “ Happy Halloween”! Oh, it was too cute and it really was only a couple of days early…that is good for us Holiday nuts!

I felt like tonight I was starting a cold, gee I hope that isn’t going to be true. I have been pretty healthy for quite awhile, so I am going to close early tonight and get to bed. I feel blessed to live in such a wonderful, beautiful part of the world. Days like today, certainly remind me of my blessings.

I hope you are starting to enjoy the first few days till Fall?

Night dear friends!


“Delicious autumn!  My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.”     ~George Eliot

“I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.”   ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

“Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.”     ~Elizabeth
