Make It Stop


The fall is nearly complete. I want to slow it down, tell it to hold on. I’m not finished admiring it. And yet it keeps falling…

    We are getting hints of Fall around here in SE GA. I feel ya, Trish. Our seasons aren’t as profound near Savannah. It is supposed to be in the 80’s today. It was pretty chilly about a week ago and now we are back to the 80’s. It was like a cruel tease. I am really enjoying your Fall pictures Suzanne. Thank yoU!

    We still have lots of trees with leaves in our yard but the weatherman said we’ll be getting wind gusts of 30mph this afternoon so I have the feeling that if I want to take pictures…I better do it this morning. I love looking at your photo’s Suzanne…just beautiful!

    Hey Suzanne!

    I’m with you on that one! Fall just isn’t lasting as long as I would like for it to! It is just absolutely gorgeous where I live and I would like it to stay that way for a while longer! :jackolantern:

    I was just out raking up some leaves for future mulch! I LOVE Fall, and we had some hard rain yesterday and last night, so most all of the leaves have fallen… =(

    Fall is my all time favorite time of year. The only down side to it is it gets windy. We had 40mph winds yesterday, this morning I woke up to 4 inches of snow. I’m not quite ready. This is Arizona for crine out loud. (NE AZ).

    Oh this just reminds me how much I have let it slip past me this year. Here in Tennessee near the Smokies, Fall is GLORIOUS, but I’ve been so busy that I’ve not stopped to admire it. Thankfully my husband found out he and I are both off work Thursday and is taking me up into the mountains for the day to just admire the colors and nature, just the two of us. October is my favorite month, and we were married in October (but I even worked on our anniversary). Just have to slow down and enjoy it before it’s gone.

    Thanks so much for the pictures. Here in Texas, as you know, we have none of that – LOL

    I spent a few years in Connecticut and absolutely loved it. Miss it!

    I know exactly what you mean. The leaves finally changed properly and it has been beautiful. I’m not quite ready for Winter!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
