It seems for everyone it is been a very busy summer and here it has been a hot one. I don’t do that well in really hot weather but my garden seemed to like it most of the time till it got too burned off. I hope everyone had a good summer.

I am talking like it is over and it isn’t quite yet BUT I have noticed the signs. Saturday it was over 90 degrees. And yet at night and in the early morning you could feel the drop. The sky is getting darker earlier and a bit of the haze or fog is starting to appear around. School has started. Speaking of that PLEASE DRIVE MORE CAREFULLY. Kids are all over now and are busy talking and excited and well our attention needs to be very sharp for their safety please!

I have been working on a couple of different blogs to put on but as usual not very promptly. But then I a not a everyday blogger. This is good because there are so many wonderful blogs out there and this way you have time to read different ones. For today I am reposting a poem in Honor of Fall!


Fall slipped in and it means many things.
The colors starting to peak out to see,
If they are ready to explode into the art that they will be.
It is about putting away your summer toys, shorts and tanks.
And also about giving thanks.
Ghost and goblins and pumpkins in there too.
Being careful the kids don’t scare you!
The colors POP right out of the night,
When you wake up it is everywhere in sight.
Reds and browns all around,
Vivid oranges can be found.
What a sight to behold.
Fall is my favorite if truth be told.

A mist or fog starts the day,
It is very soothing in its own way.
The air is crisper with a freshness that tingles you breath,
Subtle changes and making of nests.
Some birds leaving some birds stay,
Even some people go away!
Tucking away things for the nights so cold,
Going for walks on fallen leaves with colors so bold.
Sweaters and hats coming out,
School kids everywhere giving a shout!
The weather near perfect for such a feat,
As everyone getting ready for their winter sleep.
The nights cool down more and more.
Now you find you must shut the door.
Plants die or go and hide,
New ones planted for next year’s ride.

It also brings to your mind
Did you finish or make that find?
Of what you planned in the newness of the year,
Now that the end of it is coming near.
Can’t let it go, must attempt the goal,
It is stimulating for your mind,
And a must for your soul.

Yes fall is to finish, prepare and renew.
Some of the things you already do,
Some more adventures are on the way.
There is still some time to go out and play.
There is nothing like a crisp and sunny fall day!
