Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

There's no denying it. August is on the way out. Temperatures are dropping, the flower beds are changing, and ragweed, elderberries, and bittersweet are getting ripe along the roadsides.
The hay has been cut, the sheep sheared again, and the kids are back in school. Fall is well on its way.
Dew is heavier, the evenings cooler, and mums are appearing everywhere.
The local college has opened its doors to the freshman, and it's getting dark earlier. The shift has begun. The equinox is turning. My favorite time of year is coming.
Jim and I were both autumn babies, so maybe that's why we like this time of year so. I'm going to dig out the portable fire pit so we can roast some hot dogs in the back yard!
Bring it on...'tis time for the orange and gold decor! I think that Autumn is the best season to decorate for. Sure, there will be hot days again, and we'll still break out in a sweat. The signs are there however...it's coming!
How do you feel about Fall? Does it make you sad to see Summer fade?
Or do feel a sense of elation and exhilaration seeing the season roll over?
