Peach State says: Bend, Whip and Twirl!

I could hear it when I woke up in the darkness of the morning. I could feel it when I opened the door leading to the back porch. I could see it even though the overcast-cloud-covered sky lacked the bright sun beams streaming through each crevasse of the varied-entwined branches.

Bend, Whip and Twirl!

The leaves have recovered surfaces that were routinely cleaned yesterday. Yet once again the numerous and ever-multiplying brownish leaves have been Bent and Whipped from there lofty heights and have danced their way, in a symphonic masterpiece, only to be lost in the Twirling collection on the ground!

Brightly colored leaves are beginning to fade just like their chances of holding onto the insecure limbs during their Bering Strait baring state. ( Sorry I could not resist the analogy of a colder climate!). As I look out the windows, surrounding me, it looks very chilly as the remaining quivering leaves tremble on the branches. I know my mind is playing tricks on me as the tingling chill-bumps run up and down my arms and shoulders.

I do so love these type of days…especially when I can watch the Bend, Whip and Twirl caused by the stiff Fall wind…Don’t you? I know a certain 13 year old who would love to be outside trying to catch that solitary straggler as it floats to the already covered ground.


A day made for memories…

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

Peach State says: The Coolness Of The Morning


The changing of the colors in vibrant display…
The scattering of fallen leaves massed beneath the emptying branches…
The added morning dew rolling gently off the vehicles in the driveway…
The wearing of deeper purples and reds as feet begin to hibernate inside socks and closed toed shoes…
Festivals of every design with pumpkins, corn stalks and hay bales…
Gatherings of friends and family draped in their favorite team’s colors…
And…the raising of the household thermostat…

Ah! It’s Fall and I can finally feel a crispy change in the air…well for a little while!

The Coolness Of The Fall Morning!

I smile a quiet smile and take a sip of my “morning companion” relishing the warmth as the soothing caffeine begins it’s gradual wake-up call. I hope my coffee works quickly…my youngest has a game to play this morning and I would so love to crawl beneath the beckoning bed-covers.

“I Do Love Fall…Do You?”

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

Peach State says: Dreaming of Fall!

I know, I know…Summer still has a few more days before…but a girl can dream.
Driving down the winding highway as colors burst from each tree…leaves that playfully trickle down to their final resting place after a gentle ballet in the breeze…what a dream!
I love the Fall! It is, by far, my favorite season of all weather wise. A crisp coolness in the air as cooler temperatures replace the hot and humid air of Summer. I am so ready…I just can’t wait…I am Dreaming of Fall!

Walking through the woods on a fresh carpet of fallen leaves as they crunch beneath my feet…the smells of woodsy scents. The cozy times at home with family as the daylight fades early and homes glow through the windows. Candles flicker as wisps of cinnamon and leaves rise filling the house with memories of Falls past.

Casually taking in the outdoors, as I sit on my backyard swing, with my oversized sweater and a cup of coffee. I will lift my face towards the sky and soak in the warm rays as I feel the cooling breeze blowing across my face.

Comfort foods like chili and chicken and dumplings fill the tables as menus change. I do love my comfort foods! Baking of goodies to warm the senses of family members as they come home for the day.

OOO…and College Football! But that is another day’s blog!

I love Fall and I am Dreaming of Fall! Aren’t You?

Have a great day!
