Fall is definitely in the air and you can see it all around. When I look out my front windows, I see color appearing in my big maple tree. Gratefully, it's raining here this morning (remainder of the hurricane) and it makes it smell like fall. Slowly, the grass is turning green again and the garden is perking up.
I've been working hard to get everything together for Leola's fall open house and I think I'm getting there. Judy, Linda and I took off this week to find our bittersweet and other dried things to decorate the store. We have a good friend who lives on Stockton Lake and has lots of land so we headed that direction. We loaded in his truck and drove out through the pastures. It just does so much for my soul to get out into the country once in awhile. It was a warm but beautiful day and no problems with bugs or poison ivy.
Jim wanted to show us this old deserted house. What a wonderful photo opportunity. I'd love to make a wonderful Christmas wreath and go back in December for more pictures. Can't you just see it with a wreath on the door?
This picture is our dear friend, Jim. He's one of the few who has chosen exactly the life he wants to live. It's great to be around someone who's so content with his life. Love that......it seems so rare.
Stay happy, Mr. Stockton!
Well, better get busy again. Lots to do. Have a great weekend.
