The Frost Is On the Pumpkin


Well, actually the frost isn't on the pumpkin.  We are having an unusually warm September - low 90's.  I just thought that I might make some weather suggestions to see if it would help.  Of course, later we'll be complaining about the cold. But for now, for just this day, it would be nice to have a bit of frost for those pumpkins.

Autumn is my favorite season.  While growing up Autumn meant the football season.  I'm not such a big sports fan.  But I was in band and we were at all the games and we marched in the half time.  Plus those players on the field were my friends.  It was an exciting and fun time.  After I was married, we always took our kids on a camping trip in the Autumn season.  We had wonderful family time and have many happy memories about sitting around the campfire in the cool of the evening.    One time a raccoon shimmied down the tree right beside us and walked over to the picnic table.  He promptly picked up our entire brand new bag of marshmallows and ran off with it.  We weren't sure whether to laugh or to mourn the loss of our treat for later.



I went to my high school reunion this last weekend.  It was the (mumble mumble) year for us but the first one I had been able to attend.  What a delight it was to see my friends from those football and band days.  There were a few that were unable to attend.  But many were there.  -  Great times!


Here's a piece from my Etsy shop that reminds me of Autumn moons.  He's promising her the moon!  She's not so sure.....

Fall is my favorite time of year too, and I loved the raccoon story - too funny!

Got a bit nostalgic reading this one, I was a fringe student and dropped out of band in the 7th grade so missed all that side of school life, moved too far away to contemplate any reunions, but this made me think back to yester year. Enjoyed it, and did some catching up on your past entries, sounds like you are busy as ever.Good one,Thanks!

Its still much warmer than normal here too. But they say a front in coming in the next day or so that will put us down to more appropriate temps. Yeah!

Hello Elizabeth,
I am glad you commented on my blog, as it remided me to visit here. I do so enjoy your work. I am a cat lover, dogs are fine as well, I also love owls. Have you drawn owls before? I can't imagine having the tiger and lion in my arms like the photo of you with them. Pure heaven. How great the cat and mice candel holder is! The collage is so nice, well done.
Blessings in your day!
Marcie
