"Autumn Beautiful Autumn"

This is the "Old Homestead" where I lived for 40 years, raised 5 children and many dogs and cats. Plus, lots of cows, pigs, a goat or two and the chickens went or I went. So the chickens went...


Autumn is a season for big decisions--like whether or not it's too late to start spring cleaning.

Autumn--time to drag out your winter clothes and see what kind of summer fun we had...

This autumn we can look forward to falling leaves and rising gas prices. We'll be raking it up while the oil companies are raking it in.

The autumn leaves are a lot like raising kids. First they turn on you, and then they fly away. And next thing you know, you look out the window and they're back!

I got tired of looking at all those leaves in my yard, so I got up off the couch and went into action. I closed the curtains.

The leaves are beginning to fall, and soon only two things will be hanging from the trees: the last leaf and the first football coach.

I can hardly wait until all the leaves turn brown to match the grass.

This is an exciting autumn. Our athletes are breaking the records for the most Olympic medals, and our political candidates are breaking the records for the most campaign promises.

Now. today's lawn & garden tip. If you haven't found the hedge trimmer yet, forget it. It's almost time now to lose the leaf rake.

It's fall, that time when the colors change from green to red to gold--and that's just the gunk in your swimming pool.

Autumn is a great time of the year. Soon those ugly patches of dead grass in your lawn will be covered up--with ugly patches of dead leaves..
I hope you have a Happy Week-end. Thanks for visiting me today.


  1. I enjoyed the one about closing the curtains to deal with the leaves. I always hope for strong winds that will blow them someplace else. Well...not strong winds but just strong enough. I am not fond of leaf raking or snow shoveling. The photo of your farm looks so nice to me. And the one of you next to the tree is pretty too. Have great weekend Ann.
