Fall and Its Beauty

 October is in full force here, but the weather sure is odd this year. We are usually at peak color around this time and we have just barely started to see color on our trees. As I look out the window, I see a little orange and yellow, but not much. Our county is known for it's leaves, which drives all the locals crazy as many tourists flock here to see leaves. The same leaves that are in their own yards and change the same as ours do, but they just feel they see them better here. The photo below is a Google Image, but it looks like our road when color is at its' prime. 

Red, yellow, and orange can usually be seen in abundance here, but I must say that I don't usually notice until it looks like this on my drive out. My friends love to visit in the fall because of the colors. 

This photo is a Google Image too, but I love it. Each morning, I find chickens on our porch banister and I have thought many times that if I placed pumpkins in my window sill, they would attempt to peck through the glass. 

It's hard to believe that it is almost holiday season. You know the November and December rush of Thanksgiving, and Christmas that seems to flood the country each year. I love to decorate, but it seems as though I have been cutting back each year and I am sure that I will this year too. I love my Christmas tree and I have enjoyed our fall décor and Halloween décor, but I will be glad to get my tree up. I do love Christmas!!!!

Fall is winding several activities down here on the farm. The chickens are not laying as much and the work seems to have dwindled down some as well. I am just not up to having so much to do these days. Between my foot surgery last fall, my battle with Co-Vid, and the fact that I am aging, I just feel much more drained than before. My husband had cataract surgery last week and will do his other eye next week and I have battled dry eye syndrome the past week and still feel as though my eyes are not in great shape. I have some tests for macular degenerative done in November and I will say that I am stressed about that. I don't want to lose my sight!!

Well enough of this, I hope you all have a great day and if the weather is nice where you are, please get out and enjoy it!!


  1. It is good to hear from you! I am so sorry about what you have been going through!

  2. Love the fall colors in the pictures. I too love Christmas but have cut back on how much I decorate.
    Sorry to hear about the eye problems. Hope the test goes well for you

    1. I love the fall colors as well. I love Christmas but I believe scaling back will be in my planning.

  3. Carol. You have bene through enough. Time for things to smooth out before the holidays are upon us. LOVE that internet picture, too. I can see why you love it! Hope you have a good week and a positive test outcome. xo Diana

  4. Thanks so much Diana. I am so tired of not feeling well and struggling with my feet, health,etc.
