Fall’s been interesting…a non-stop adventure for this Type A Lady! I thought I’d share some of my Fall Fun! AND…cause I’m so Type A : I’m writing this in the acronym:
G – is for golden – the color of the Illinois corn fields which crosspatched my view from the plane!
O – is for the orange leaves which shimmered in the Missouri hills on the way to the cabin my father built in 1949.
D – is for dad’s birthday – my mom, sister and I celebrated dad’s birthday with a road trip to our special cabin above the river.
S – is for simmering soup I flew to Denver to visit my youngest daughter and her two business associates, @hankandboris – the super cats! I climbed the table bench to get this shot of our pumpkin soup, cheese, bread and prosciutto! What a feast for girl and cat sleepovers!
B – is for Baby Shower – I’m headed off for the birth of my first grandchild in one week!
L – is for loving Fall family times
E – is for energetic – Nothing like keeping up with the kids!
S – is for sunset at home between trips.
S – is for shimmering moonlight – I love Fall Nights !
I – is for Indian Summer and the day we discovered the love notes in the barn.
N – is for nighttime – I love Fall walks in the cool darkness!
G – is for God. I’m so thankful to God for my fun fall adventures!
Bonus Fall Blessing!
