"As autumn returns to earth's northern hemisphere, and day and night are briefly, but perfectly, balanced at the equinox, may we remember anew how fragile life is ---- human life, surely, but also the lives of all other creatures, trees and plants, waters and winds.
May we make wise choices in how and what we harvest, may earth's weather turn kinder, may there be enough food for all creatures, may the diminishing light in our daytime skies be met by an increasing compassion and tolerance in our hearts."
"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns."
My son Brad brought me in this beautiful leaf the other day and I couldn't keep it all to myself! I had to scan it and share it with you.
We had a wonderful Sunday at home yesterday. Straightening the house up for company ~ my DH's parents and cousin came to have dinner with us. DH loves to cook and made the most amazing Sunday evening dinner. A breakfast meal! Hash brown casserole, sausage, biscuits and last but not least scrambled eggs. It was delicious ~
The weather's been wonderful here in Georgia, wonderfully fall-like. And when my in-laws left last night to head home, we could even see our breath...Chilly!!!

Below I've scanned in some images from a precious old children's coloring book. Well the first bird was colored all over by a young sweetie but I scanned it in and then used my Photoshop Elements to clean it up!! How cool is that? Feel free to take these images and use them. I think they would make BEAUTIFUL embroidery patterns for redwork, don't you?
