August 21

I'm sitting in the early morning sun. The glare is such that I can't quite see my screen. And yet there are thick blue gray clouds in the sky... clouds that are different from hazy summer clouds. These clouds are telling me it's colder up there. The burning bush shrubs have all turned red. Poplars are shedding yellow leaves...hints of fall. Most of the grass, shrubs and trees are still green, but the air is cool. Our two weeks of summer are fading fast. :) Maybe I want it to fade. Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The chill in the air, the smell of pumpkins and gourds and fallen leaves, the taste of fresh apple cider...all favorites.

What is your favorite season?


  1. This is funny. I saw you won an award at Linda Kage's, and she mentioned that you blog everyday. I was like, what? No, she blogs on the weekend. LOL
    And here you have this blog that I didn't even notice before! LOL

    Autumn is my fave time of year too. I miss it. Not much fall in Florida. :-( Lots of sun though. :-)
    Enjoy your day!

  2. Hi Jessica,

    LOL- yes this is my daily musings and view from my window. Sunday is my more thought out craft blog. I thought of combining them, but they each serve a different purpose. Cheers!
