Ushering In The Fall Season
It's in the air and near the lake shore, in the busy little ants making preparation for what is to come. As I drive along the country roads, there it is again ... just starting to show its true colors. The colors of AUTUMN. One by one the leaves on the trees are painted in hues of crimson, burnt orange, and golden yellow. One, by one ... until the whole tree explodes in magnificent color. The lake and river gains more beach as man empties out some of the summer fun to make way for winter's snow melt. Once crowded streets busy with visitors will belong to the locals. The quiet time of the year is nearing. Each day is changing ... goodby my summertime carefree days. Goodby sandles, peddle pushers, and bright painted toes! Hello my old favorite sweater and toasty warm shoes. Hello hot tea and cider with cinnamon sticks. Hello chili with cornbread, my favorite soups and beef stew. HELLO FALL my favorite time of the year.
