seven to seven

Sunrise at 7 and sunset at 7, it is that time of year.    There is the crispness in the air. The displays of color are almost painted on trees.........Fall has arrived!

While the squirrels gather their nuts, in this household it's leaf gathering , drying and sorting in preparation for fall eco dyeing projects.  Akin to  yarn/fabric stash, one can never have enough.

My stitched piece hanging near my computer desk has the following:

the way to happiness

keep your heart free from hate,
your mind from worry

live simply
expect little
give much

scatter sunshine
forget self
think of others

till next time......

September and fall is coming

Once again I've dusted off the cobwebs on my keyboard....my mojo has returned.

It's been a summer, hot, dry, with smoke filled skies and the eclipse in late August.  The rains have come, along with cooler temperatures.    For most of the summer it seemed even the birds were missing.  Whether it was the heat or the smoky skies sightings were few.   Now in the early mornings it is a pleasure to hear their songs.

Space on our patio is getting crowded.   Sully knows it is his domain.   The hummers have a different view.  And the squirrel looking for places to stash a peanut isn't thrilled by the hummers or Sully.   As for the people of the house, you take your chances and find a chair and enjoy the outdoors.

for now......Happy Fall!
