And So It Begins

From the second you open your eyes in the morning and flip over the covers to place your feet on the floor. The smell of crisp, cool air flows through your nostrils. You make your way down to the kitchen. A full pot of coffee has been brewed and waiting for your enjoyment.  The steam curls into the air as you pour it into your favorite mug. And sip. Now take a deep breath and sigh. Because the warm nights are over, and the cool nights have crept in. Along with foggy mornings, cloudy skies, colorful leaves, and lots and lots of pumpkins! Welcome to fall ladies and gentlemen!This Saturday starts the official first day of fall. But as we in the northeast have already had our heat on in the evening, it has begun for us and a few across the U.S..

My sister and I went up to the pumpkin patch and to our surprise we have uncovered batches of gourds and pumpkins. All just waiting to be picked! And so we did. Climbing through vines and thorns, using boards to climb from on hill to the next became quiet the adventurous journey. MacKenzie tagged along safely on the golf cart with her Pappy. But really she had no interest in the pumpkins what so ever. She was more concerned with playing with the keys and taking off her socks. She’s a pudgie!

Last spring we threw handfuls of seeds over grassy banks. Some of the pumpkins were starter plants that we actually planted. But believe it or not the handful of seeds seemed to prosper the most. Such a festive array of colors. It truly gets you excited for fall.
