September days...

A low mist hung above our morning today... the first fog of the season, and then the sun came up and bathed the earth in sunshine.... hope, and possibilities were born. And how delightful these  September days are...



Spending every leisure hour in the garden... pruning, collecting, cleaning, moving things around, re-planting, painting, painting... and sometimes, enjoying the view too... but just for a very short time. You see, I can't be still for too long. It's odd, I know, but I tend to enjoy things while I work at them... Like when I'm in the garden.
 
 
I go and go. I can’t ever sit still when the list piles up. Are you like that too?  There is always something to do. ALWAYS.  I know... I need to work harder on being able to rest... does that makes sense?  Just stop and rest...  being able to sit and relax it just doesn't come naturally in me.


Collecting organic tomatoes from our veggie beds, and grapes... oh so many grapes from all of our lovely grapevines...  


Red grapes, white grapes, green grapes...


My favorites are the seedless type from the vine covering our back porch...
 

So lovely, to just bring your arms up and be able to grab some sweet juicy goodness at any time of day...


Autumn days are an invitation to fantasy. Enchantment always finds its way to my heart on days like these—sunshine and crisp skies, birds and calmness, a season’s end and a beginning of another.

 

I can feel it in my bones—autumn, during my walks in the early morning. Cool and crisp with sunshine over the easterly horizon. It is as if the skies decided to announce the beginning of colors, and different shaped leaves tumbling down the maple trees. And then there's God everywhere, and goodness and forgiveness...  do you feel it?  Oh I do hope so.
 

So lets do this... let forgiveness bring feelings of understanding, empathy and compassion and let it lessen its grip on our soul and help us focus on positive things...  How about that!  ;)  Good night everyone.  And thanks for stopping by.
