Early Morning

When I stepped out on my deck this morning I was greeted by cool air and the beauty of a bit of mist in the trees.

 We live, as the kids like to say "in a ditch" with hills all around us.  It is lovely and interesting to see how it gets light long before we see the sun and also how at night it is dark here while the hills around us are still bathing in the light.

 I have been so enjoying the weather this last week.  We've had the a/c off, and it has been wonderful to enjoy the outdoors again.

 There she is!  I loved how the mist looked when the light hit it...

 Looking toward the barn - I love the sunlight on the trees...

A few minutes later and it is much lighter, though the sun hasn't risen much more yet.

I am enjoying this easing into Autumn, though I wouldn't be surprised if it heats up again, before we have our real Autumn weather, after all, it is still August which is notoriously hot around these parts!  I am thankful for the break from the heat.

I'm heading into the shoppe this morning, the website is still getting it's makeover and you're going to love the way it looks and functions!  I've had a preview and I like it already!

We are busy with Autumn buying - beautiful scarves, hats, handbags, jewelry...we love having a girlie shoppe!

I must run...I need to get ready for the shoppe and I want a chance to taste the pumpkin bread I made this morning!

Beautiful views from your deck.
Have a great day at the shoppe. May many ladies suddenly need lots of new and beautiful items.

May I kindly suggest to your family that they stop referring to your home as living in a "ditch" and substitute "down in the holler"? That's what we say here and it works well for my sensibilities. We have a very similar situation. It looks like dark o'thirty at four in the afternoon and it takes awhile for the world to brighten in the morning as well...

I, too, get endlessly fascinated with the light when there are so many shadows about.

Have a fun day at work!

Lovely pictures, Deanna! I, too, am thankful for the break in the heat. Even if it is temporary, it portends of the cooler weather that is sure to come. Did all this thinking about fall inspire you to make pumpkin bread this morning? Sounds wonderful! :D

Can't wait to see the web site, all spruced up and full of autumn accessories. Before you know it, everyone will be Christmas shopping!

  We've been swimming every late afternoon into the early evening. We are in the midst of a heat wave and I am working to keep my hydran...
