This week at our local Big R farm store, they had huge, rounded, beautiful mums for three bucks each! I selected a golden bronze and a burgundy. The circumference of these plants is nearly two and half feet across!
Jim got home late last night, and will be leaving early Sunday morn, so today we went to the area's apple orchard as this was the first weekend for their delish cider. We both stood in line for a yummy cider slush, then walked around, sipping, as we looked through a Plexiglas cut out of an active, and busy bee hive; selected a peck of apples, and found a tiny orange pumpkin for 50 cents.
I bought a Boo pumpkin, exactly like the one in Penniwig's graphic yesterday at the produce farm I visit weekly. They're such a nice young couple, with a passel of children, all usually barefoot. It's a treat to go there and visit such a homey atmosphere, where hard work, nature, and thanking God is the norm. These perfect September days should make us all thankful. It's just so darn nice, being alive, and healthy enough to be able to be out in the day, and experience Autumn perfection. Little blessings come in so many ways. We just need to be aware enough to recognize them as they happen. There usually are no fireworks going off, or parades. The moments are quite often very small. We just feel a brief glimmer of warmth inside, just a fleeting moment, but it's there. Just be open enough, so ye can receive!
