Ahh fall!!!




It is certainly feeling like fall around here. Cool, pleasant nights and glorious days! We are surely enjoying it. The robins and hummingbirds have gone south for the winter. What amazes me is this. It is the time of year for the butterflies to migrate south too. We see them daily now fluttering by on their journey. Think about it for a moment. Isn't it amazing that they can make this trip? I mean, they are delicate creatures and not really meant to fly all those thousands of miles yet they do it. One of God's awesome miracles. Jack and I love to sit on the patio and watch them as they go by. You don't see nearly as many as you do in eastern Kansas. They are usually pretty thick there. Here it is just the fringes but we do see several a day.

What does fall mean to you? The end of summer and all it's fun? Too me it means a time to slow down, relax and enjoy life. Winter is coming, a time to rest and prepare for spring. I love the change of seasons. Here are a couple fall pics taken in my home town a couple years ago. I love them.

Fall means... a fire in the woodstove... crunchy walks through the leaves... stew for supper... and pumpkin pie.

Beautiful Autumn photographs. The trees are just starting around here.

october has always been special in this family as DH & i were married on oct 1st and our oldest daughter celebrates her birthday on oct 3rd.

I'm not much for hot & humid weather & look forward to the milder temperatures in the Fall.

never mind stitching with all the yellow, gold, and oranges for FALL Stitching projects :D
