Thoughtful Thursday-The Glimmerings of Autumn

Autumn is coming, I can smell it. That waning golden light-warm breezes with a touch of impending chill-dried leaves falling from the trees kind of smell.

It's the time I drain my pond and winter my turtle inside for the next six months. A sad day for both of us.

It's the time that my daughter and I revel in $5 Starbucks Pumpkin Spice lattes. I know, I know.

It's the time my ghost makes his appearance by the oak tree.

It's the time I pay close to $3.00/pound for Honeycrisp apples because there's nothing worse than a bad apple. Well-worth the price paid.

It's the time Halloween decorations start to show up. My advice to the stores? Quit displaying Halloween with Christmas decorations because that totally kills the mood.

It's the time my dogs can expect longer walks with more "stuff" to snuffle.

It's the time I finally get to put away my mosquito repellent. Mosquitoes love me. I can't say the feeling is mutual.

It's the time when I start buying pumpkins simply because I love the color--and then scour the internet for pumpkin recipes because I can't stand wasting food.

I hope whatever season is coming your way that you revel in it!

I love the baby pumpkins! Why I have to have several is a mystery xo
The perfect cours are taking over and that is the Art that will never be duplicated.
More audience ( turtles) for your Cirqu performances!
Comfy weekend wishes, Debi
