As of tomorrow, summer is officially over and, once again, my favorite season is upon us...AUTUMN! Warm days, chilly evenings, falling leaves, bonfires, and all things pumpkin spice! How nice! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ„

I've been thinking about some of the things that I would like to do this fall, and accomplish over the course of it, and, while I know that I won't get to all of them, at least this list will help me to stay focused on the season and enjoying it to the fullest. Won't you join me as I dream? ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, 
and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day 
and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22).

  1. That is quite the list! I have to ask. What is "squatchin' " ??? lol

    1. Ahhahahahhahaa! :D "Squatchin", Colletta, is a term coined by our family (at least I THINK it was coined by our family) for time spent with our Aunt Bev. The woman is Bigfoot (Sasquatch) crazy, so, when she comes down to visit, my cousin and I try to find fun things to do with her that has something to do with Bigfoot. We watch Bigfoot documentaries, episodes of FINDING BIGFOOT, and movies like THE LEGEND OF BOGGY CREEK. Once we even had a Bigfoot party for her! We served Bigfoot brand pizzas with Bigfoot brand candy for dessert and my cousin even wrote a song for her! It's called THE BIGFOOT BOOGIE and she loved it! It's all in fun, of course, but that's what we call 'squatchin'! :D
