Happy Fading Summer Days

And summer is fading, isn't it? You can start to see the trees lighten up, the air isn't so heavy. One of the best country pleasures is watching the wildlife around you, they can be entertaining but they also can predict the weather if you watch them regularly. I've noticed the squirrels coming in closer, like this one stealing fruit loops that I set out for the blue jays. And the blue jays screaming every morning for peanuts on the deck. Even the deer are coming up to the house in the mornings or evenings, raiding the apple tree. The hummers can't get enough "go juice" lately either, they are fueling up for the long trek south soon.

Like so many of you, I love fall. It's my favorite season, for the scents, the foliage, pumpkins and the chill in the air. Something about the way the air feels cleaner, lighter and sweet. As August comes to a end soon, and schools are back in session, this is the time to harvest hope. It's a refreshing uplift before winter keeps us locked inside. Enjoy your own wildlife, thank God for the easy summer and harvest baskets of hope, faith and promise that no matter the season, we will be ok. Happy fading summer days to you.....
