The air has gotten cooler . . .
The garden is changing colors.
Even the butterflies are getting in the October spirit ~ donning their orange & black apparel.
October is a great month for
pulling up the blanket at night
taking long walks through the falling leaves
soups, stews, chili, sloppy joes, homemade bread, pies. . .
How about a little football??
Raking leaves . . . don't forget to jump in the pile.
A wooden bowl filled with gourds and set in the middle of your kitchen table.
Drinking warm spiced cider or a nice hot cup of tea ~ my favorite for this time of year is Constant Comment.
I wish to thank all of you for your comments, thoughts and prayers. When I began blogging I wasn't planning to talk about such heavy things as my last few posts have been. But when these situations arose in my life I found it very difficult to think about anything else. So, it was either I talk about what was really going on in my life or I had nothing to say. I never ever expected to receive the outpouring of support and kindness that you have all given to me. For that I am humbled and thank you. You are the best!!!!
Now, for an update. My husband is home after spending all of last week in the hospital (mostly in intensive care). He is slowly gaining his strength and has been home from work this week. We have enjoyed some walks in the beautiful autumn air, healthy home-cooked meals, chats on the front porch and lots of plans to make a major life style change with as little stress as possible. We are feeling thankful and blessed that he is on the road to recovery.
