It's about that season!

It seems after Labor Day I really get in the mood for the crisp, cool mornings of Autumn.
I got these apples at the farmers market in the city last Saturday. I love walking through there and seeing all the wonderful produce. Apples, blackberries, squash, all things that remind me that fall will be here soon.

There is something magical about waking up on a cool fall morning, with the morning fog still on the ground, and the smell of woodsmoke that fills the air. This is my favorite time for morning walks to the lake, watching the geese gathering and planning their trip south. I love the fall wildflowers in the woods near our house, looking splendid in the warm fall sun.

I am sewing a tote to send to a swap partner on a Christmas message board that I belong too. It has fall pumpkins and is trimmed with a contrasting green. I will get a pic up as soon as I am finished.

Stephanie over at http://nightquilter.blogspot.com tagged me to blog some random bits about me using my middle name. It's Sue so it is easy.

S- Stubborn. Yep I can be, especially when it comes to doing something that I feel is immoral or unethical. This can be extremely trying in the business world.

u- Unicycle- I have always wanted to learn to ride one of these but it scares me to death. Maybe one day!

e- Entertaining. I love to entertain. I love the whole planning, cooking, decorating process. I make up events just to entertain. By the way, Monday, Sept 10th is National Hot Dog Day! Perfect for a party!

Hope everyone has a great week!

I'm looking foward to those crisp fall mornings too! We usually get them starting in October. Your apples look delicious!

I can be stubborn too and I enjoy entertaining!
I'm glad that you like our new magazine, thank you for your sweet comments!

I love when the fall comes...that means fresh, crisp apples. We have apple orchards all over our valley. Yumm!

Now you get out there and learn how to ride that unicycle. If not now, then when? :0)

We love fall too.

Last weekend was our annual Apple Festival, and unfortunately I didn't get to go, but will hit the fruit stands because there are some great apples here! Maybe make some apple butter, too!

I can hardly wait for the cool mornings to start here--we're just a little south of you. Time to break out the fall decorations.

Glad you participated in the tag! It's always nice to know more about folks on these blogs. 8^)

I love fall too! It's been so hot and I'm really glad that it is cooling down! I did that thing with my middle name before too.

Those apples look delicious.

Ah, yes.....fall!

Although right now we are in the path of Tropical Storm Gabrielle.
That's what fall is here, though.....hurricane season.

This is my first visit...I can see I'll be back to spend more time with you. I love your post with the pedestal plates...what a neat idea.
The cliff jumping looks a little too thrilling for me!
