Just Being and A Creek Side Walk

Good afternoon and it is a beautiful one here in East Tn. I have the coffee on, and its is just plain old DD today. It is very good and smelled wonderful when it was making. Grab a cup and lets sit out on the porch, okay? Today I have just been, "being." Do you ever just "be"? It has been wonderful, wearing pj's all day, drinking coffee and talking to the It has occurred to me, you have been all over my house, seen a lot of my collections, seen the front yard, but never have you seen, what I see Through My Back Door. So Dasko and I took a little walk and snapped a few pictures to share. I just wish you could have been here to walk with us. It is a pretty walk.
This is the tree by the side of the road and the little creek. Our leaves haven't turned a lot yet, so the color isn't going to be fabulous, but I think you will enjoy the walk.
This is the place the little creek flows under the bridge.
The bend from the little creek towards the big creek.
The path going along side the little creek toward the big creek. Many, many years ago it was an old wagon road connecting to the next valley over.
The bridge over the creek, below my house.
I call this the king  surveying his kingdom. I hope you enjoyed our creek walk. This is the back of the house in the field, looking at the house. This whole bank is covered with jonquils in the spring.
It has been so neat taking  you on this walk today. Dasko and I have enjoyed it so much and I hope you did.
Now for just a little more fall. I thought I would show you the fall in the You can never have too much fall can you?
On the red bench, Curtis built. I like this old cheese crock.
 This is above the red bench. Now I'll share my favorite touch of fall in the entire house. This is a corner that projects peace to me.
Thank you for coming Through My Back Door, where life is good.
PS: If you can, take the time to "Just Be." It does the body and soul good, and if it can be time with some body you love, it is even better.
