Autumn is my favorite time of year, yet there is no sense of it here. No change in the environment. Even the weather doesn't turn until late in the year when we hopefully will then have our "winter" season. Hope all is well with you and that you are having a wonderful weekend. Tammy

I loved Autumn as a kid with all the leaves changing into such beautiful colors , the crispness in the air, apple pies made by my mom ( and Dad, he was an excellent baker) from apples from the tree in our yard and sweaters!!

I still love all of this...

Hugs,
Deb

Oh, me too, Vicki! Longing for Autumn; cool breezes. I can feel in the morning breezes the essence of Autumn even though it's still warm. There is something in the air, you know?

Thank you for that stroll down memory lane. It's funny all the things that bring us back to our childhood. If I bite into just one piece of candy corn I am back in grade school the day before Halloween, and I can envision it like it was yesterday...just one piece and that's all it takes. I don't have to eat another piece.

My mother used to make caramel apples once a year, and they would be waiting for us after school.

I'm not doing much on my journal for a while, but I will be visiting all of my dear friends' journaling as much as possible.

Sending love and hugs,
