Oh My, I think Fall has come to S. Ga....


Yesterday started wet, yet still warm, about 76 degrees. Uncomfortable. It got better, the skies cleared and the temperature dropped. By the afternoon when we arrived home we were able to open the windows and enjoy the cool fresh air. That doesn't happen too often here in the South so when the opportunity presents itself we open up the house and take it all in. Bliss.

This morning was fantastic, cold even, the girls were squealing at breakfast as the breeze came in the windows and whirled around their feet. We need socks! We need gloves they cried!




We headed out to a pumpkin patch and the girls listened to some Blue Grass with their friends. I love Blue Grass music, and it's so fitting for an autumn afternoon somehow.
I have to admit, when we got out there it was a lot colder than I had anticipated! downright chilly even.




There was face painting, and pumpkin decorating, and little crafts for the kids.




We had a nice time and it felt good! I guess fall is here but next week's forecast it back up to the 80's, we'll just have to enjoy this while it lasts. I love fall!!!!

It is like that around here also. There is not much of a down time between going from the air conditioning to the heater. I love that little amount of time when you can open up the windows.

Sheesh, you've gone all nesh. You need to come home girl. It's fecking FREEZING here already. Although, I do admit, I live in a 17th century cowshed (as was) and thus the walls are a little on the thin side.

Am already in thermals, cashmere and scarves. And that's inside.
