Autumn’s arrival….

 Images from the first day of Autumn….

The morning sun was good to emphasize the glorious blue sky!

Some necessary work has been done to eliminate a spruce tree that had grown so much it blocked the sidewalk!  Now, we’ll need to pressure wash the sidewalk!  Maintenance keeps us busy!
This is my favorite season of the year!  I love the fall colors and flavors, the celebration of Thanksgiving, and it is the forerunner of Christmas, that much-loved holiday!  

We held to a tradition of enjoying Cream of Rice with dried cranberries and walnuts for breakfast.  I confess that I added a taste of butter.  The Husband even drizzled honey over his!  It’s time to enjoy Susan Branch’s Autumn mug!

Have the colors of fall arrived where you are?

Take me out to the ball game….

 It has been a few years since we’ve attended a baseball game.  

As you can see, it was a beautiful day to watch the Tennessee Smokies! 
There were many fans in the stands!

No popcorn, peanuts, or cracker jacks this visit!

It was a delicious cheeseburger along with those good summertime favorites….baked beans and potato salad.

We enjoyed this special gathering of area alumni from Emory and Henry College!

Oh!  The Tennessee Smokies won the game 3-1!
