The weather is definitely changing here.  Along with the weather change, is the beginning of the beauty of autumn.  The leaves have begun their change and the hills are beginning to be dotted with slight changes in the color of green. They are beginning to look slightly yellowed, with little tiny bits of red showing here and there.  The sky has turned the bluest of blues and we've had several days when there wasn't a cloud in the sky.  Goldenrod is blooming along the road sides and many untended hay fields are alive with purple Iron weed, white Queen Ann's lace and yellow Goldenrod.  God is the perfect artist.  The beauty he creates is unmatched by anything man made.  So even though I am protesting that it is getting colder I am really loving the beauty around me.

I have most of my fall decorations up inside the house and outside of the house. This past weekend we went to the pumpkin patch and had a really good time.  We played on the play grounds with Lily, April & Pete and took the hayride to the pumpkin patch. When we got home I made a pot of farmer sausage, potato & kale soup from Mennonite Girls Can Cook. It was very yummy.

The garden is winding down, I have picked most of the tomatoes after a recent cold snap. We are still getting a few peppers and basil. We did well with green beans and corn, but didn't get hardly any Zipper Cream peas. The deer finally learned that they are quite tasty, so there was none left for us.

I hope everyone is having a Happy Fall and making memories with their families.
