Thankful Thursday

Once again, it is time for Thankful Thursday, hosted by Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses. Please take the time to visit her beautiful blog. Then hop on over to Thankful Thursday to see a list of all who are participating and pay each of them a visit too.

I am thankful for Fall!

Each of the seasons has it's particular charm. But Fall is definitely my favorite! Yesterday, we were at least 10 degress cooler than the day before. And we had cool breezes - not those hot, drying north-west winds that toast everything. No air conditioning (nor furnace) necessary. That is my kind of day! There are no 90's predicted in the 10 day forecast, hooray! Though I wouldn't be surprised to see Mother Nature slip a few more in before November!

Yellow, mellow, ripened days,
Sheltered in a golden coating;
O'er the dreamy, listless haze,
White and dainty cloudlets floating;
Winking at the blushing trees,
And the sombre, furrowed fallow;
Smiling at the airy ease,
Of the southward flying swallow
Sweet and smiling are thy ways,
Beauteous, golden Autumn days.
~Will Carleton, Autumn Days.

Thankfully, Chris


  1. Fall is a wonderful time of year. Living in south Florida, I don't get to enjoy it as many others do. This year, though, I am lucky as I am going to NJ for a wedding next week and will hopefully get more of a taste of it than here in Florida. Your post was great and I love your new banner. It looks so nice!!

  2. Hello Chris, beautiful picture, beautiful poem and a beautiful way to welcome fall.

    love the positivity, it helps me :)
    come back again, i have something brewing....

  3. Hi Chris,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.
    You are right, we should be thankful for fall. We will probably have a few more hot days before fall is here to stay, too.
    I love your banner, you have a pretty blog. I'll be back later to read a little more.

  4. Hi Chris
    Fall is my favourite season. Loved your Thankful Thursday post!

  5. Oh I so agree with you. Autumn is always my favorite season. And that poem is beautiful. I hope you don't mind if I copy it over to my blog. I don't want to forget it.

  6. Hello Chris! We're neighbors! I'm in the Sacramento area. I am loving this change in the weather too! Definitely something to be thankful for!

  7. We are having nice cool days, which isn't the norm for this time of year. But then we're only 200 miles from Houston, so it probably adds up to the past hurricane winds. So nice to find you! I tried to post on Thankful Thursday today and it won't show up! So frustrating!

  8. Your blog is so delightful and I love your thankful post. Fall is my favorite season too. Such a wonderful poem. Karen

  9. Your blog always looks so lovely, Chris. I really like your header. I like the poem, too. Have a great weekend! -Julia :-)

  10. gorgeous photo Chris.........the new background on your blog is luscious.

    I doubt we will get up that way this year but ya never know.


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
