Fall always brings that
back-to-school feeling of a
new sweater. . .
and fresh beginnings in the air. . .
Or maybe it's the crisp morning breeze that compels me to wake up early and go for a walk. I love the outdoors, but dusk is falling sooner and sooner accompanied by nippy nights. . .
AND. . .
Speaking of holidays-
I’ve fallen in love with buying pumpkins this Halloween season.
We have visited 2 pumpkin farms, several stores with bins of pumpkins and I always manage to find
just one more. . .
For me, “white” is the new “orange” in pumpkins this year.
The fall rains have arrived accompanied by
Thousands of falling leaves.
Every week my hubby mows and rakes and for about 10 minutes the yard looks pristine and beautiful and then before
the mower has cooled off you can’t see the grass for the leaves
that continue to fall.
I love that mother-nature has taken over my watering job. Somehow she just knows when I’m done with that for the season.
And that the plants have begun there winter nesting and I can just sit back and soak up their beauty.
And the best part,
I crack open my office window, press my nose against the screen and inhale the smell of
fresh falling rain.
Sigh. . .
Seriously. . .
Does life get any better?
