Happy Fall Ya'll
*Nature adorns herself in a splendid array of colors* a cool crispness is in the morning air and night draws near earlier and earlier*soup and homemade bread*pumpkins*root vegetables*Halloween*Mums in a riot of color displayed on the stoop*crispy, crunchy leaves underfoot*boyfriend sweaters or cardigans*crazy socks and danskos*scarves*jumping onto cold sheets and cuddling*reading by lamplight*maybe a fire or two*firepits*toasted marshmallows*ghost stories*birds migrating*quilts*knitting*hayrides*country drives*
The night sky is so clear and lovely. I pointed out the beautiful moon to my granddarling Anna and she says,
"that isn't the moon that's LUNA! Of course I thought she was too cute and the most clever of little girls. Sweet Anna looks very much like her mom and aunt in the photo above. She is excited to be visiting a pumpkin patch soon and I wax nostalgic because it is the same one we always visited when "my girls" were small.
Autumn is a very reflective time for me, a day dreamy, wistful, wishing time. I think of Oktoberfest in Germany and how I would love to visit my relatives in the tiny village of my birth.
I have been thinking of the song with the words "Would you rather swing on star, carry moonbeams home in jar..." Here's a little doodle drawn while at my desk being totally non productive (thank goodness I am really sorta my own boss) I am ready for a weekend of "piddling" and homecaring and cooking.
So I wish for you a weekend of "piddling, dreaming and wishing" Maybe you will swing on a star or find some moonbeams! Happy Fall Ya'll
