My love for Autumn..........

"I meant to do
my work today

but a brown bird
sang in an apple tree
&
a butterfly flitted across a field
&
all the leaves
were calling me
&
the wind went sighing
over the land
tossing the grasses
to & fro

& a rainbow
held out it's shining hand


so what could I do
but laugh
&
go"

How I love this season with all it brings....crisp cool days, longer nights, colorful leaves,
hearty soups, football games, pumpkins, Halloween......I could go on and on.
Let's make the most of it. Let's enjoy NOW, and not wait for 'someday'.
Let's appreciate what we have, not what we don't.
Let's be happy and content. Let's build a fire in our fireplace (if we're lucky enough to have one).
Let's bring out our warmer blankets, our darker rugs, our Autumn decor, our Fall wreaths.
I have an elderly neighbor who I plan on bringing a pot of soup to....Autumn makes me happy!
How about you?

Beautiful words. I try to live in the now. It is what we have at the moment that counts.

I made homemade chili yesterday! Football was on, the weather cooled down a bit and I started cooking.

I cannot wait for full throttle fall.
Sweaters, evening walks, marshmellow sticks in the fire.

This post just melted my heart! From the darling photo (love children's shoes and black patent tickles me so) to the wonderful poem. Wise words written as well as words spoken from you. I live on a street that has a couple in their 90's. What a wonderful idea you have and I am going to do the same for my neighbor. Thanks for the idea!!
