Fields full of pumpkins and visits to farms, nursery Edens and old wooden barns. Sweet caramel treats and llamas to pet, trains to conduct and whistles to wet... at favorite restaurants where good food and grins, were enjoyed by family and several dear friends. Lumpy, bumpy gourds and friendly witches, skies a brilliant blue, lovely pots all in a row, sweet cement rabbits too. Church Sunday morning to lift up our hearts, a street fair where craftspeople showcased their art. A drive around town to view lovely places, then out to the country to embrace open spaces. Woolly sheep here and there and a sunset like fire, in the sky set my spirit to soar ever higher.We embraced every second of each precious day and opened ourselves up to the joy of play!

Bad Poetry, Fall Fun And Embracing Life
When you finally get one of those longed for "Perfect Autumn" weekends you make the most of it...so that is just what our family did!Yeah, I know...a poet I am not and I broke ever cardinal rule there IS in poetry! Still, it was a wonderful weekend! We had dinner with family and friends on both days, enjoyed the farms and country drives, being together as a family and reveling in the cooler air. The weather was glorious, the skies were so blue! Grace and my nephew Boo had the best time. And yes, we adults in the group had a great time too! I want to thank dear Tammy for the precious Christmas Spirit award. It surely did bring a smile to my face and humble my heart. And Kari? I hope you know your cousin Joey is in all our prayers... Please visit Kari and share a word or prayer with her for her beloved cousin. He was in an awful work related accident last week. He is, thanks to prayer and positive thinking...and a fantastic team of doctors...improving bit by bit. This event truly does serve to remind each of us to live life to the fullest. Embrace every second...
