can only get better.............

......................first of all, my youngest grand went to school today (kindergarten) without one tear !!!!!! in four weeks !!!!! and the day just got better from there........a MUCH needed rain for most of the day...........the last time we had any good rain at all, meaning measurable,  was over 4 weeks ago and with the temperature lately being in the 90's, it was getting DRY !!!!!!!!!!!  cleaned the house and settled in for the afternoon  stitching ........nothing like a good rainy day, clean home, and a good project...I had another antique frame to fill and a project was calling me.....I love this time of year and everything it brings.......you can slowly see the changes outside.....some leaves starting to turn, grasses with their beautiful seed heads, and some flowers with their final show, while others are already feeding the birds........the air smells better, days are getting shorter, and wood is being stacked for the winter.......I am not sure if I could live somewhere without 4 such differences in the seasons......each one having their own unique quality....... with fall being my very favorite....till next time....enjoy the season....smiles, linda
