I am having a busy Saturday in the office as well as in the shop. But what I have not failed to notice is the beautiful color!
Have you caught yourself this season, even on the darkest of days, stepping out the door, sensing that something was different? I admit…one day I was deep in thought, walking down the front walk, and suddenly sensed fire. It was the large autumn adorned tree that hovers over the slope above the pond. Extremely bright colors. No fire. A gentle reminder perhaps to remain appreciative of the change in season? I thought so.
I am not fond of autumn because of what follows, winter. What I do love are the cool temperatures, the color, and I dearly love to see the harvest going on around us. The grain trucks have been rolling up and down the road. I can hear the grain elevators and dryers running through the night. Such a blessing…a reminder, life is very good. A bounty of blessings!
Speaking of blessings…in a short 1/2 hour I am shutting down the office. This is a weekend for peace, relaxation, and re-connection with friends. I hope you can do the same.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” – George Eliot
