Falling back

The beautiful season of autumn lets your senses sail away. Sailboat_Lake_Shelbyville

Fall in the country has it’s very own smell. The trick is to breathe deeply and notice it!Country_Road

Reminisce a bit, then brush your hands off, and appreciate each beautiful moment that was and will be.Kaskaskia_River

I hope you feel some pride in the place you call home.Shelbyville_dusk

I’m lucky to look out my doors, windows, and down my street to beautiful views.Halloween

My neighborhood embraces Halloween!  The pictures do not do it justice.  As a friend said, “It really is like something out of a movie scene.” The streets were full of head-lights, tail-lights, walkers, wagons, strollers, families, princesses, super heroes, and goblins.  Trick_Treat

The neighborhood market grilled hotdogs for families – for free!  My neighbor played the school cheer song on his trumpet for all to hear.Goblins

And then …. we ran out of candy!  It was time to hide!Bubbles_Blankets

Friends, I hope you fall back today and enjoy a relaxing day.

    The orange and yellow leaves are beautiful. We don’t get that down here in the swamps.

    You certainly have great color in the trees. I’m about 100 miles further north but somehow we just sort of went from tired green to fast yellow and that was it. There was one maple that looked dark pink instead of red in the front courtyard of an apartment building, but that was about all that could be seen from where I live. I’ve got mostly apartment buildings and paving too look out on.

      Well, darn! I hate that your fall was so short and lacked the beautiful colors. 100 miles north – you may get some pretty snows. I just don’t love being out in snow, except taking photos of it! 😉

      • Aquila says:

        If it snows we’re basically housebound. The hill we live on is on the steep side and gets very slippery with snow. Most of the trees have lost their leaves over the last day or so. We’re on a busy street too so the pretty doesn’t last long.

        Snow isn’t very pretty for long, anywhere! 😉
