  1. You folks spend a lot of time outside in autumn and it sounds like fun. If we could have a fire (we are not allowed), I would love a hot dog and perhaps half a s'more. =D I put the fleece sheets on the bed some weeks ago. pleasant, warm, and cozy. That way, I can still keep my window open overnight.

  2. Forgot to say that your header is marvelous! So beautiful.

  3. Can't think of a thing to add! Until next spring, autumn is my favorite time of year! (And we have a tree on our property that turns those same colors. ♥ it!)

  4. Yes. That header is gorgeous,!!! I love many of the same things you do about fall. Crisp days, fires, the smell of wood smoke, the glaze of ice on the water, a cold bedroom but an electric mattress pad turned on low.

  5. We could stop at each item on your list and give thanks for it. Autumn is such a wonderful time of year. Your collage header is great!

  6. Love the new header! I love so many things about Autumn! October is my favorite month.
