"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers" L.M. Montgomery
"Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale" Lauren DeStefano
And a little humor..... ;-)
This little guy settled on my sunroom window and hung out for awhile, even when I got up close to take a picture he was not startled away.
The Blue Heron has been making some pretty regular visits around our yard :-) You can see some of the leaves starting to fall on the ground behind him.
"But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since he last saw you" Stephen King
I love the fall and 26 years ago in October is when Jerry and I started going steady... yes that's what we called it back then, lol. Football games, homecoming, bonfires, crisp leaves crunching under your feet, pumpkin everything, warm cozy sweatshirts, fuzzy socks....aaahhhh so many things to love about the fall! This past week I started some decorating, it's still been very warm but I had to start before the season just flew by!
Kathleen was my little helper to decide where things should go. She's always been excited when I pulled out the decorations for the holidays.
Cats just love hanging out in the sunroom and Elvis is quite happy I added our table in there. :-) It has been a great place for the girls to do their homework and it has much better lighting then in our kitchen.
Mirabelle was also first to nestle herself among my bay window decorations!
Kathleen has been busy whipping up the first batch of pumpkin muffins with icing for the season!!!
She even made sure my bestie Dawn, who Kathleen and Hayley call her "aunt" Dawn and her husband Sam "uncle" Sam had some warm cupcakes for their drive home :-)
The mums they planted for me are really doing well!! Such beautiful colors, I love them so much!
"Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year" Chad Sugg
I enjoy walking around my yard so much and seeing the early signs of fall, still discreet but there nonetheless!
Still lots and lots of green!!!
