And the seasons change...

Have I ever mentioned that fall is my favorite time of year? I'm sure I have...and probably too many times. It's been raining here for days and today brushed away the last of my favored colors of fall. The leaves are still beautiful, just now on the ground!

Do you have a favorite season? I wonder what makes us attracted to certain times of year. Is it childhood memories, work that needs to be done, rewards of that work?

So I guess it's time to focus on the next season - Thanksgiving - when the family gathers to share laughter, love and a wonderful time. And meal too!

Here's to wishing each of you a smooth transition to the next season of our life.

Just Remember to Breathe!

Life has been very hectic the last two months with a lot of life changes. I am hopeful that things are going to settle down and we can all relax for a while. Thanks to those who checked in. I've missed blogging and reading my daily blogs.

Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. Colors are bursting out all over. I love the vibrance of the colors and the briskness of the air. The planters have been retired for the season, mums planted for next year and I sit each morning, while contemplating my day's activities, and look out my kitchen window to beautiful, beautiful colors...and breathe...and know that tomorrow will be a better day.

This picture is a cozy corner in my kitchen - nothing fancy, just a shock of color that makes me smile. The Witches Elbow plate is from T.J. Max - and boasts of on-site repairs. Always a conversation starter!

Here's wishing each of you a beautiful and bountiful fall season!!
