Welcome friends. Come in and sit awhile

I have been baking cookies all morning hoping you would drop by.
Please choose a cookie you would like. And would you prefer coffee or tea?

The pumpkins look very tasty.

Let me put a few on a plate. Oh heck, just grab a couple and we will go sit on the swing and enjoy the autumn sun.
Thanks for dropping by.

Fall Drive

It was a beautiful day as I drove to the lake last week for my appointment with my Dr. It was in the low 70's and a lovely sunshiny day. Just perfect for rolling down the windows and opening the lid on my car.

Beautiful wildflowers were in bloom along the roadside. I think these are Black Eyed Susans. They stretched for miles on both sides of the road.

The sky was an unbelievable shade of blue with hardly a cloud in sight.

These pumpkins, gourds, and squash were heaped beside the roadside but no for sale sign on them. I pulled into the driveway hoping someone would appear so I could buy a few.

On the other side of the road was this handsome fellow. I bet he was hoping if he put in an early appearance we would forget about him by Thanksgiving.

Fall, my favorite time of year here in the mid west. Sunny days, cool nights and all the colors of Autumn.
