We Made It!


We made it to September in the weirdest year ever!  If you know me, you know Summertime is the BEST time.  I love planting things, birding, and mowing.  We are outdoors more than we are indoors.  I have a love-hate with Fall.  Our Summers are just that good but I LOVE decorating for Fall.  Today is supposed to be rainy, so we will do school first and then give the house a good deep clean.  I promised Matilda that if we're all caught up by Wednesday, I will make a visit to the attic and do pumpkin inventory!

In the Winter as our pumpkins (the ones we've purchased) begin to break down, we have a pumpkin smashing fest in the backyard.  We are on five acres, so we just go outside the fence and start pitching them.  We've done this for the past few years.  Well, this year, we had pumpkins start growing where we smashed them.  We've been babying them, but also letting nature take care of them.  We have two pumpkins that I can see.  There may be one or two more!  I'll try to post their progress here.

You can tell our weather is in transition.  Our birding has been increasing with birds we've never had before!  We had a Tufted Titmouse yesterday!  This sweet bird's first visit to our yard.  Our Eastern Blues come daily and line the fence and fill the bird bath.  This photo only shows a few of them!

Well, I'm off!  It's time to teach the nine year old and get this house ready for Fall!

2021 Has been the best year to get my camera out.  I'm going to work on being better about sharing here.  These are just a few of this year's photos!  

Fall is Coming Quickly

   We've had a warm (but not miserable) Summer this year.  It's also been drought-like and dry!  Yesterday, we played outside early so that we could beat the rain.  I'm glad we did!  It rained from 9 a.m. until bedtime.  Matilda rocked school and was doing things until 2 p.m.  Then we put up a tent in the living room and watched Hocus Pocus.  We definitely are in our Fall moods now. The hummingbird migration is in full swing.  We had so many buzzing all over the yard during the rain yesterday.  I have new food made and ready to go now! Typically at this time of the year, I offer Halloween photography cards.  It's been the weirdest year!  Is there any interest in keeping the postal service alive?  Let me know if anyone would like a pack of pumpkin cards.  I love printing and packaging these up.  I will offer these for the entire month of September.  Just send me a message! Is anyone else starting Fall decorating?  Today may have to be my attic day!  I want to see how you
