September has started out

 just the way I love for days to be.  There have been cooler, shady days full of clouds,

slight breezes,

and occasional rain showers.
I am so glad for Autumn to be here.  

The sunsets have been the most unusual
and breathtakingly beautiful.
and the sunrise has been just as spectacular.
With the day being cooler, my walks have been longer and slower.
Sophie and I walked along the back field and I picked a handful
of bright sunflowers.  They were full of bugs and bees, 
and a group of tiny bees followed us half way home, not
wanting to give up the bouquet in my hand.
I found myself in "pumpkin heaven" the other day. 
A store had it's entire front displayed in beautiful pumpkins of 
every shape and color. How can I choose just one??
I picked out a couple of the usual round orange and fairy tale pumpkins, 
but this lovely one  looked as if it was wrapped in lace, 
so it came home with me as well.
They make the small back porch more cheerful and welcoming.
It has also been a fun time for friends to gather 
around a happy table for treats and a time to catch 
up on each other's lives.
I savor the slow down days like this.
Gladys Taber said it right when she wrote
  "As summer wanes, we cherish every mild dreamy day."
I hope this finds you enjoying such days!
