It's definitely fall around here. We've been getting wet, cold, foggy weather. Yesterday was very windy. My trees in the backyard have been kissed by the below freezing nights last week and I have a wall of gold running across my back yard. It's just beautiful. This particular day the cold foggy morning turned into a beautiful sunny fall day.
The kids love it when these trees drop their leaves. I'm telling you they get a huge pile to jump in! Before I had these trees the back yard was bare and I would go out front to the boulevard trees and to the neighbor's front yard
and collect leaves by the wheel barrel and bucket full and bring them to the back. Did I ever say I love fallen leaves? The crunch, the sight, the smell. Heaven!
This is a pic of the foggy mornings the kids were heading to the bus stop in. The cold, wet weather has made me get a bit of a hankering for some baking. I'm not much of a baker. Love to cook, not so into the baking. Don't get me wrong. I love to eat the baking, but don't enjoy the baking of it. So if I get any kind of compulsion to bake I go for it. Last night I made Pumpkin Bundt Cake and we enjoyed it with nice hot mugs of hot chocolate and whipped creme on both. MMMMM! And yes, my fitness buddy, you know who you are, I had a slim piece with oh so little whipped creme on it and no hot chocolate. Promise!
Now to wrap up my love of fall, the next pictures were taken by my Tweenie Girl. She loves photography and would like to be a photographer. She's always got camera in hand looking for what would make a cool picture. Personally, I'd buy her stuff! :v)
*Update: Remember I mentioned up top that it was very windy. Well look at our surprise when we went out to play:
Is that the yellow brick road in my backyard?
