This right here, this is my favorite thing about fall. Are you with me! Autumn just wouldn’t be right without God’s handiwork all around. I am so blessed to be able to enjoy it!
I want to share something that I will never forget, about the wonder of the Autumn scenery! About five years ago my daughter had to get glasses and it just so happened that the glasses arrived at the end of October. Well, we went to get the glasses and came home. As soon as we pulled in our driveway my daughter made a comment about not knowing the leaves looked as good as they did. I really can’t help you to conjure up the moment, it was so profound! I cried, seriously! I felt so terrible for not realizing the problem sooner, and was in complete dismay that she had never before visually captured this beauteous sight. Can you even imagine! I can’t praise God enough for his beautiful creation.
I took a few pictures of my backyard in March, to mark the coming in of Spring. check it out here http://relaxaspell.com/2017/03/25/246/.
I also posted our summer garden here http://relaxaspell.com/2017/06/18/get-ready-the-zucchini-are-coming-the-zucchini-are-coming/
I don’t think I could live anywhere that didn’t have the distinctive four seasons, could you? Its all what you’re accustomed to, I guess! You might say, there is really nothin special there! But, I love it!
Now I want to further explain my choice of title for this post. Am I the only one who has found a million pumpkin recipes out there. I wanted to assure you that there were no pumpkiney recipes here. Although I have to say that I do buy in to most everything pumpkin spice. Actually this morning for breakfast I put pumpkin spice in my coffee grounds, and then pumpkin butter on bread. And yesterday I made, wait for it……”PUMPKIN MUFFINS”!! No, I didn’t use any of the ten billion pumpkin recipes on Pinterest. In previous years I made pumpkin puree from scratch and did all the gory pumpkin mess myself. But I ain’t up for that! It’s been canned pumpkin for the last few years. I AIN’T ashamed!! Now we just do up a cute little face and set them babies on the porch!
Twinsies!! (sorry, looks like I got a finger in there)
Go carve a pumpkin or two, enjoy some pumpkiney treats along with the scenery, and take time to relax a spell!
