Hello Friends! How are you? I'm back from my blog break and have a lot of catching up to do.
It's now officially Fall. Do you love autumn as much as I do? It's my favorite time of year.
I love the changing colors in the trees, but it's too early to tell if the color will be very vibrant this year.
My flowers are still doing pretty well. I've lost a few but overall they are still looking good. We're having temps back in the low 90's again so it's too hot, I think, to set out pumpkins on the front porch.
I haven't yet brought my tote of fall decor up from the basement. Maybe I'll get BG to do that for me this weekend. I'm ready to see a bit of fall in the house but I will be keeping it simple this year.
I'm still thinking about painting so I don't need extra stuff to move. Now if my olden body could just have as much energy as my thinker. :) I'd like for it to cool down so I can open the windows

And this is where I have to mention one reason why I love reading blogs. Despite all the sorrows and tragedies in the world, there is a community where you can read that life does go on. Homes are still being tended to, friends and families are loved, meals are being prepared, people are still kind, friendly and will pray for each other when there is a need.
I love crape myrtle trees. We saw some beautiful ones in different colors on our vacation this month. I'll tell you where we went next time. This post is long enough and I want to start visiting, but first I have to finish the vacuuming. See you soon.
Happy Friday to you!
