Good morning and come on Through My Back Door. It is raining but not to worry, Pumpkin Spice coffee is waiting on you. It is not going to be a pretty day, but know what? I don't mind. I love these days, especially when it is cooler and you can make a pot of soup, have friends in and visit. That is exactly what is happening here tonight. It seemed like my leaves were never going to turn, this year, but they did.
Like so many of you fall is my favorite season. I love preparing for the winter months and then snuggling in to read, watch TV(which I don't do much of) and just be. Of course the dominoes and card groups continue on, there is always family activities, and church, but we have the sense of nesting. I like to cook more in the fall and winter, making fudge is such a pleasure, and ah the cups of mulled cider. Fall is just perfect and I love the month. I love pumpkin squares and my Mother's caramel icing, these are guilty pleasures.lol I have another thing I love and that is to hear the call of the geese in the morning and evening when they go directly over my house. There is nothing like that sound and it always makes me smile.
If you have been coming Through My Back Door very long, you know I love to reread Gladys Taber books in the fall through January/February. Why?Because they are so uplifting and encouraging. I also adore Susan Branch. I enjoy all of her books and I love her illustrations. Her book Autumn is out now.
Aahhh October, don't you love it? I love you coming Through My Back Door where life is good.
PS: Oh my please, blogging friends pray for litttle Livvy Glen, 10 years old and battling cancer. Her aunt said they were treating it aggressively, so that means chemo is strong. Please pray for her whole family. God has put this little girl into my heart for some reason.If you read my last post you know the story.
PSS: The Clinton Festival was Saturday. I put some of Barbie goods booth on my FB page. She knows how to do fall
PSSS: I am home for the winter except for one more trip. The card group always does a get away in the fall. What fun awaits us!
