Goodbye Summer, Welcome Autumn..........

Once again it is time for the changing of the seasons.  We say goodbye to walking barefoot on hot afternoons, lazy evenings sipping iced tea on the porch, baseball and apple pie at Grandma's.  We say hello to a crisp morning breeze, smell of fresh cut wood for the stove, radiant falling leaves, football and pumpkin pie.  Welcome Autumn, come in with all your beauty, the door is open...................

Autumn was and still is my favorite season of the year.  As a child growing up in Northern Wisconsin,  I can recall the "Scents of Fall".
  • Musty oak leaves blowing into drifts
  • Savory pumpkin pie cooling on the cupboard
  • Chimney smoke from all the wood stoves
  • Corn silage 
  • Smell of leather footballs tossed from my brother
  • Crisp new clothes for the start of school
  • Fall cleaning products
  • Buttery popcorn at football games
  • Sweet hot cocoa
  • Smell of new flannel PJ's....that was the best
Here in Southern Missouri, it will be a few more weeks, into November, before the leaves fall, and the winds blow cool and crisp.  We welcome Autumn with open arms, as there is a time for every season, your time is near..............

It is nourished.
