The lake is cooling down

Here is an early morning scene a few days ago as the air cooled the lake we swam in all summer. Perhaps it's beginning to think about making ice for ice-skating!  Beautiful mists.  Today we are getting such strong, gusting winds that the remaining leaves are being blown from the trees and away.  Makes me wonder why I bothered raking the other day.

One of 4 Fave Seasons

Right now Autumn is my favorite season.   Soon Winter will be my favorite and so on!  We have been enjoying one of the most beautiful falls on record with moderate temps and glorious colors.  Here are some photos from my yard and home.  I raked leaves into a huge pile one recent day.... another reason why I love fall... raking!  Yes, truly.  Good exercise and it smells so good. 

I also made this pieced candy corn banner of quilt weight fabrics.... a "green" way to decorate and I can use it again next year.  The reverse is a Halloween print as well as the double fold tape.  I made the tape with one of those neat little tools and an iron.... very easy to do, inexpensive and it coordinates perfectly with the flags.
