Peach State says: Fall’s Morning Colors


The slightly chilled driveway brought a smile to my face this morning as I, once again, took the trash bag out to the can by the street. “It is Monday which means Garbage day!” I said my final departures to my off-to-work hubby and walked back to the garage. The painted canvas was bright and cheerful as the sun began it’s peek-a-boo game on it’s steady climb into the morning sky.


The splatter of colors mixed with the bright fire-orange glow make for a pretty picture to start the day! The pulled-apart-cotton-ball clouds float lazily across the sky with quickly changing hues. My mind moves along in a slightly faster pace…reminding me to continue with the chores laid out for me. I turn and go back inside…fix my small and quite cute designed bowl of oatmeal. (Yes I ate something!)
This is the last day of September and the final days with my 20 year are finally here. We will soon have his departure date…but until then I will be a sentimental and reflective mom. ” Wait…I have always been that type of mom!”

Just a few more minutes of solitude with my “morning companion” before the influx of pest control and shipments bombard my door. The shipments I can’t wait for…the bug-guy…well you know how it is!

“May your cup runneth over with joy, love and laughter oh, and really fabulous coffee!”

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
