I haven't done much fall decorating yet. My tubs are still down in the shed. I did buy some mums a couple of weeks ago.
A couple of pot to put here and there and the rest were placed in the ground. It is super dry here and I am hoping that they will make it.
Since it has been so dry I have been making sure that the bird bath has fresh water every evening.
Not many bird have been out, but the squirrels have been using it. It is so dry that the other day a squirrel keep watching us while on the swing set and keep creeping closer and closer to the bird bath. He finally risked it for a drink. I have never seen the squirrels get that close while we have been out.
This is a picture of my front lawn.
That will give you an idea of how dry it is. The area farmers are having a hard time because of it. The other day there were three field fires in one day. Unfortunately not only crops were damaged, one family lost their home.
This time of year evenings are a favorite time of mine. We have been spending some time out enjoying the cooler weather. The other night we stayed out well past dark, lite a candle and then ended up putting on a puppet shadow show.
It really is the simple things that make life fun!
Chuck and Megan have a special time at bedtime. After we read a story and have prayer time I leave the room.
Megan asks Daddy to tell her a story about her friends. They make us stories about each of her favorite stuffed animals. Chuck has stated writing down the stories they create so we can create a book for her. It really warms my heart to see them have this special time.
I hope that you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
