Sam and Laura unhitched the pedal boat for it's first and quite probably last ride this season. As Laura pushed her pedals to the plastic, Sam let his feet effortlessly spin on his moving pedals and every now and then he rowed for a bit. A lot is revealed by how one masters an unwieldy pedal boat.

We bought a king-size bed for comfort and sprawling...clearly at the time of purchase we had no idea who would be doing the sprawling. And if there's any doubt who uses the bed most, the leaf stained paw marks of our slothful companions leave telltale signs on the new white (almost) duvet. Oy.

It took most of the summer to finish, but I finally have a little corner of the world just for reading. It's fashioned into the corner of our screened in porch and started as a bench that hid our kitty litter boxes. We've since expanded said bench, had a mattress made to fit into it, covered it in indoor/outdoor fabric and a pile of pillows...and YES, it still houses our kitty litter boxes....but Shhhhh, no one knows...and they're very tidy cats!!!

Perhaps the most beautiful time in our corner of the world is....right...now....from yellow to orange to red all in one magical week. Even when the leaves all blow away, we're left with a magnificent, picture perfect vista. Since I've started teaching at our local college, I've not had much time to catch my breath and see what Mother Nature's breath has been up to. Today I did....and I must say she outdoes herself every year. Let's all throw a roast in the oven, put some apple sauce on to boil and call it Fall, shall we?
