I love Autumn. I use to love Summer, but I have become heat intolerant the older I get and I don’t like to sweat so there’s that, too. We have been having some glorious days and today was one. Driving back from Indianapolis from my daughter’s physical therapy we saw some of the most beautiful red leaved trees in a field. The leaves are indeed starting to change. They are later than usual, but that’s okay. It will be beautiful in Brown County in another week and the leaf gazers will be out in force.
We have been busy doing things with the Grandboys. Once again we attended Grandparents’ Day at the Christian school two of our Grandboys attend. We always enjoy it. And we take them out to eat and get to have some one on one time with them. It’s fun having a real conversation with our older Grandboys about all kinds of subjects.
This one went from a little boy to a young man almost overnight. I hate it, but what can I do? Kids grow up right before our eyes almost.
This one is a Junior. Ack!
Taller than us both and such a nice boy. We love them both so much.
Then soccer with this Grandboy. His team won both games. Yay!
This boy can kick a soccer ball. He made several goals.
Sitting on his mama’s lap between games.
This is our “baby” Grandboy. Getting so tall also. He played goalie for a while.
Sometimes he didn’t look very interested! His team won their games, too. Yay!
Since this was the last of the soccer games for the season there were concessions, booths giving away things from water bottles to Tide sticks and some were selling soccer paraphernalia. And this guy showed up since Target was sponsoring the whole thing.
The sky was so blue that day.
Trees starting to turn. It was just glorious and nice to be outside although right after the games the wind picked up and began blowing pretty hard. Leaves flying everywhere.
In Autumn it seems the flowers give their last hurrah as if they know that soon they will be resting for a few months.
My hydrangea had more flowers on it than ever before.
I’ve always wanted blue hydrangeas and this year I finally have one. I do have to add something to the soil so they will turn blue.
I’ve done very minimal Autumn decorating this year as I won’t be around for most of it.
Fairy lights, pumpkins and Halloween figures on the mantel.
A tray of tiny pumpkins and a Buttered Maple Syrup scented candle. I haven’t lit it yet, but maybe tonight.
And of course, new yarn has been ordered and received. I used up a bunch of yarn on patchwork socks and so I needed a new stash.
These colors are so beautiful. My horrible photography does not do these colors any justice at all, but believe me, they are deep colored and delicious looking. I can’t wait to get them wound and let the knitting begin. I’m really going to have to relearn how to knit sweaters because I have knit so many socks this year. I use to knit sweaters and things for my kids years ago, but it seems I have forgotten all I ever knew.
Enjoy these glorious Autumn days because Winter is right around the corner. Bye.
