Fall Is In The Air

The Trees are just beginning to change

I can feel it coming in the air and I am so ready for it!  Fall is just around the corner and even though it is still warm outside, I can tell that it is here!  I am soooo ready for the coolness in the breeze to blow through my hair and the crisp morning air to waken my body as I head off to work!  I think fall is the very best season, and I am so thankful that I live in a state that allows me to see and feel the changes of the seasons!

Before long the goblins will be knocking at the door wanting their treats, the leaves will be golden yellow, crimson red, and Tennessee orange!  Nothing makes my body and mind come to life more than a cool, crisp, sunny fall day!

I can already smell the pumpkin bread and pumpkin pies baking in the oven and hear the voices and laughter of friends and family as we gather around the table for a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner!  I can see the bright eyes of the grandkids as the turkey is placed in the center of the table and hear the calm breathing as everyone, with bellies full, relaxes with a hot cup of peppermint tea or a wonderful glass of wine after a delicious dinner!

Ah yes, fall is in the air, and I can’t wait!

change is coming

I Miss Halloween

Little Old Man and Two Little Clowns.. Halloween 1982

My Little Elephant Halloween 2010

Do you like Halloween?  It has always been one of my favorite times of year.  When my children were young it was  such an exciting day for us.  I usually made their costumes and we met my sisters and their cousins at my mom’s and had a big ole party.  I enjoyed seeing all the children dressed up and some of the parents too.  Seems to me people really got involved in the mood of the day back then, not so much now, here, in this neighborhood.  I had 0 trick or treaters last year! 0!  The year before I had 3.  I love to decorate, but no one else even puts out a jack-o-lantern and most don’t even turn on a porch light!  What is up with these people?!  Who would want to let their kids go knock on someone’s door that does not even have the path lit up?  I don’t even decorate much any more, in fact now October 1st brings a month of depression!
