Autumn and Joy

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

autumn, pumpkin, joy, fall

    Cute! I love your top banner as well! My joy this week was a visit from my Mom.

    Sunday at the pumpkin farm and apple orchard with my kiddos and hubs. It was perfect. Going to check out those recipes because I actually want to do something with the insides of our pumpkins this year.

    I love those sorts of pumpkins?

    Think I can get them on my roof?

    I've never been a fan of eating pumpkin…just never seemed to enjoy the taste. BUT, I do love this quote. And the photo. :)

  8. Kimberly

    Love that quote!

    I've disconnected to the online world a bit more this week to enjoy the little moments with my kids. That's brought me so much joy!

    Autumn is the best.

    Mainly because of gourds.

    And my ability to liberally sprinkle all conversations with the word "gourd."

  10. Love your fall header! Joy this week? Rough week, but knowing the weekend is near while I drink some tea and catch up on my reader, this brings me joy.

  11. mmmm I feel the same way.

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you ought to publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo matter
    but usually folks don’t discuss such topics. To the next!
    Many thanks!!
