So, I am in the Fall mood! I am thinking of pumpkins, hayrides, sweaters in the morning, leaves changing (if they are not all dead from the horrible heat this summer), crisp air, chili, cool breezes, the fair, and of course, FOOTBALL. The heat will probably be back tomorrow, but for now, a girl can dream.
A picture from my pumpkin harvest a few years ago. With our small dog Clyde who
unfortunately is no longer with us, I miss that big guy!
I always try to pick my most flattering pictures to post.
Fall is my favorite time of year. I tilled my garden yesterday, I do not recommend that when it has not rained in months, I felt like Pigpen from Charlie Brown by the time I got it done. But, Fall/Winter crops are going in this week. I am trying broccoli this year!
As you know, I am working hard to make our little town a better place to raise our kids. We have a fabulous little village with some wonderful people and the majority have hopped on board with all my ideas - a farmers' market, a community library and various community gatherings. So, my newest idea comes from my new friend Robin at Frustrated Farm Girl (I think she is my long-lost twin). I am going to establish a community soup night! I am very excited about this, I hope to create an environment that cultivates collective joy, bonding neighbors. So, all my wonderful bloggy world friends, I need soup recipes! My specialty, well the only one I ever really make, is potato soup. Help broaden my horizons friends.
I urge you to go outside and enjoy the beginning of Fall, then think about what you can do in your community to leave it a better place than you found it!
Going to put on a cardigan and homeschool the kids on the deck,
