Autmn Leaves !

I have been
taking some time for my self.

Last Sunday I took a drive down to my home town,
then out to Lake Jefferson to spend time with my cousin.

Driving through the Valley of the Jolly Green Giant,
I saw the leaves at their peak,
from St.Peter to Lake Jefferson it was as beautiful as
any trip you would take in Connecticut.

I was so tempted when I got home to fill my yard with Sumac,
but I know what a weed it really is,
maybe I'll plant it next door when my neighbor is gone.

I enjoyed my visit and lunched with my cousin and my BFF from high school
My cousin will leave soon for Arizona and and my BFF for Texas.

I had a full schedule when I got back, a trip to the Chanhassen dinner theater
and lunch with cousin
Connie yesterday to catch up.
She and Hubby will be leaving for their home
in Florida on Sunday.

I am one of those rare people who love Winter, not the bitter cold days,
the brisk fresh air, and the snow crunching under my feet when I walk.

I sometimes dream that Hubba and I will be left in Minnesota during the winter
all by ourselves.

Enjoy !!

Ah, the incomparable Nat King Cole! He must have been such a treasure as he did so young. But your post, of course was, indeed, a breath of fresh air. I grew up with snow and ice then spent most of my life in the Southwest. Today I am next door to California, and it is still 90 degrees. But I do admire the feeling your post instills with the cool air of Autumn, Green Tea! Thanks again for remembering Gunner and Trevor in their hour of need! I am very touched by your sincere Love and Compassion! :)
