For Goodness Sake…Where is Fall?

OK, tomorrow is the last day of September. So far this month, I have attended football games in shorts, picked apples in 90 degree heat and found pumpkin spice coffee far from appealing. Where are you, Fall? School has started, the leaves have a slight tingle of scarlet, you can buy pumpkins at farm stands along the road (you can also buy Christmas decor at Target, but I’ll leave that for a other times) and my boots stand ready to go. Summer, you had your day in the sun. I love you but it’s time to move on. I’m ready for sweater weather, chilly evenings with a fire, steamy cups of hot cider and crunchy leaves. I can see Fall peeking around the corner, but Fall needs to come out already…I don’t want to swelter in the pumpkin patch.

Homespun beauty in a vintage tobacco basket.

Ready to curl up with a good book on a crisp fall evening.

Waiting in the hallway to catch the glorious Fall light.

Dressed up and ready for Fall family fun.

Picking apples in the sweltering heat was still magical.

Sing To Me Autumn

Enjoy this post from the past…we are in full Fall busy mode this weekend! Sassy Princess picture included

Sing To Me, Autumn

Sing to me, Autumn, with the rustle of your leaves.

Breathe on me your spicy scents that flow within your breeze.

Dance with me, Autumn, your waltz that bends the boughs of trees.

Now tell me all the secrets you’ve whispered to the seas.

Sleep with me, Autumn, beneath your starlit skies.

Let your yellow harvest moon shimmer in our eyes.

Kiss me, Autumn, with your enchanting spellbound ways

That changes all you touch into crimson golden days.

Love me, Autumn, and behold this love so true

That I’ll be waiting faithfully each year to be with you.
