Today it is still Fall.


November is at the door.  October is sneaking out, leaving behind tracks of trick or treat candy that will taunt me in the days to come.  Not even one little costumed person at the door this year.  I do, however, have pictures of my two granddaughters.  One a redheaded sidekick of Scooby Doo and the other a good natured little sheep who went along with dressing up without having much input in the matter.  Both girls are adorable!

First Halloween for Merit Claire

The house is looking like autumn.  The fire is burning.  The begonias have been brought in from the cold night air that keeps flirting with freezing.  We went to the last Farmer’s Market of the season after church and got some tender, sweet baby carrots with the tops on.  We also  went for a walk today and picked up some stunning leaves that I keep turning over and admiring.  The books are stacked near every chair for what some are saying will be a cold and snowy winter.  We had fresh Pink Lady apples and caramel dip FOR SUPPER!  Ha!  And we are having popcorn for dessert!  

No more sandals.  No more bare arms.  No more hummingbirds and goldfinches.  But in their places have come brilliant colors that leap through the windows at me.  Autumn oranges and yellows will turn to monochromatic hues soon enough.  Today it is still fall.

  1. Good writers must be born out of good reads. And you are a good writer, whose prose does cause me to ponder and admire the colors of your carefully painted word pictures.
    Thank you for taking the time to post photos and words as you reflect on the seasons changing. Lovely.

  2. I’m so glad you are enjoying the beautiful fall season!
