It is a beautiful fall morning Through My Back Door, and I am so happy to see you. Come in, get a cup of coffee,(DD, in the Bunn today) and help yourself to a cookie. Yes, they are peanut butter and I love them. If you had waited until tomorrow we would have had pumpkin squares, but today it is cookies. Don't tell anyone, but the fireplace is on for effect. (no heat) just flame. I am always happy to see you drop in, but especially today. I am counting my fall blessings. We are using the Bunn today because company is coming down the road and they are coffee drinkers. We will eat a lot of good fall sweets and drink a lot of coffee. We will play cards, dominoes, and do a lot of talking. This is one of my fall blessings. I can't wait for them to get here and walk in here.
One of the best fall blessings for me is lighting. I love the glow of light, in the fall. I don't know, but I think my house is a fall or Christmas house. I wonder what my next one will be.
I also love mulled cider in pewter mugs in the fall. Something about those mugs makes it taste better.
Taking trips with friends is a fall blessing and it makes lots of happy memories.
Going to the beach was an unexpected fall blessing this year.
I love snuggling up with a throw, reading a good book, listening to music, "just being," in the fall. Do you know what? I love to go back and read Gladys Taber books fall through Christmas. Something about them draws me in the fall. How about you? What do you like to do?
Another thing I consider blessings are smells. Don't you love the smells of fall? Pumpkin spice coffee, mulled cider, cookies baking in the oven, smoke from your neighbors chimney? Making apple butter, baking a turkey, oh my the list just goes on and on. I love the smells of fall. Yes, even the smell of wet leaves. Sitting around a fire, roasting hot dogs or marshmallows.
Another fall blessing is you coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Why don't you think about your fall blessings. I would like to know what they are. I have many more, just don't want to bore you with them all.lol
PSS: Amanda is going to let us take a field trip to her house. What fun that is going to be. Beth said we can come to her's too. She and Amanda decorate nothing alike. Not like Deb and I either. It should be fun. It will be a long ride to Beths. She lives in Il.
PSSS: Let us continue praying for blogging friends and their families. Everyday I hear of another need. Let us all take time during the day to remember them. That should be one of our greatest fall blessings, praying for one another.
