Looks like Fall!


It is past 10pm and here I am, writing this post up.  It is the only time I could steal a few moments to sit down and compose something.  Goodness, time is something that I feel I've been running out of lately..

Every moment counts though, so I make do with what I have, and if posting late at night is the only time I have, then that will have to be it :)

Had a big thunderstorm last night and woke up to everything wet outside, the sky full of clouds, which remained throughout the day, making it really look like the perfect Fall day.

It immediately makes me think of Gingerbread and lattes, and especially the McDonald's Pumpkin Spice Lattes which I love.


My husband decided to surprise me with one, on his way home from work.  I love this man.


Lunch today was very simple, some grilled cheese, ham and pepperoni sandwiches and some yummy grapes on the side.


They really were delicious and I've been enjoying my fruit lately.  It's weird but I got through stages, I could go for months without caring much for fruit, and then suddenly I am eating it every single day and just can't get enough.

Go figure!


As the day wore on, the clouds dispersed, and by the time the sun started to set, it was bright in all it's glory, shining through the branches of the trees and setting everything aglow.

Definitely one of my favorite times of the day, the natural light is gorgeous.


I love how quickly the trees seem to be changing, from day to day, that fast.  Or maybe it's just that I'm no longer used to so many trees around me, having lived in Arizona for so many years with nothing but brown and dirt around me.  Makes you appreciate things.


One of the other signs that things are quickly moving, are the leaves I am finding all over the grass.  I can't wait to see the leaf piles.


I pulled out all my Autumn cookbooks and am already looking through them in search of soups, stews and all things pumpkin.  I think tomorrow I may just whip up a Gingerbread Cake.....yes, I think that is on the agenda, for sure.


Not much else was done today, aside from normal homemaking chores and homeschooling, so I don't have a lot to chat about, just really wanted to come in and say hi.

My laptop battery is about to die, so I better get on out of here, besides, I am super tired and my warm comfy bed is calling my name.

I will be back in the morning with a Show and Tell, I'm sorry I missed it last week but had a lot going on.

Good night friends and God Bless,

Those sandwiches would get wonderful with a spoonful of homemade pizza sauce. I may have to try that soon.

Hello Sandra! It's also cloudy here, or maybe foggy would be the right word, but it's ok because it's Friday! He are close to Spring here, my favorite part of the year! Look forward to see your show and tell today, I'll be back in your blog during the afternoon. Have a nice Friday!

Hi Sandra, just catching up having been away, I haven't commented, but I have read all of your posts. I hope that you are having a good day today and that you enjoy making the cake, it sounds delicious. I was amazed having come home how much more autumny it seems here than it was in New England, we have a lot of leaves down in the garden, but they can wait until the weekend for raking up! I hope that you have a good weekend and enjoy the fall. xx

We had storms Wednesday night. It had some crazy lightening and the thunder shook the whole house. Love the sunset picture. Glad I stopped by. Have a wonderful day!

Sandra it is still soooo hot here! Send some Fall my way if you can.

What are the red things in the tree? Apples? I can't tell. iPhone size pictures for me...just curious. I hope it's apples for your sake.
I would be the "Bubba Gump" of apples if I had tree...Apple pie, apple crisp, apple-dapple cake, shrimp & apples, apple butter, apple & potatoes! Lol!

Have a good weekend!
