(end of ) Autumn | and giveaway

Replacing the usual Friday's Finds for this form of poetry, today.  I hope you enjoy!

~ Autumn ~

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;

The berry's cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.

The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.

Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I'll put a trinket on.

Actually, and, how perfect! 
 It's the end of Autumn (sort of) and, the snowflakes (and sleet) fell yesterday - on Thanksgiving - our first snowfall for the year.

Now, I'm actually getting excited for Christmas!  Looking to start decorating our home for the Holidays, sometime this weekend - probably while Scott is off deer - hunting.

By the way. We had a wonderful day - yesterday - with our extended family. 
However, both our little ones now have a croupy, yucky cough going on - so not fun! 
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Have a wonderful weekend!!


: : For a trinket of your own, my real life friend Staci is doing a giveaway on her blog - for a piece of her handmade jewelry.  Go check it out!


  1. Aw, will do! (pray for your little ones!)

    Glad you had a good Thanksgiving! Are your pictures recent? We don't have ANY leaves left...not for sometime now...though I am farther North then you! Can't wait to see your decorations, too bad I couldn't see 'em in person, over coffee! ;)

  2. Beautiful pictures...and I will be praying for your little people.

  3. Oh so many shades of brown, and beautiful they are.

  4. Beautiful. Glad you had a good day. Lots of cooking, taking for to my mom, but everyone in our family totally misunderstands how we feel and what I'm going through and why I'm not in the mood to celebrate. The house is decorated, almost completely, totally not in the mood. Chantel helped me decorate, so that's fun.

  5. I'm so impressed with your photography.
    You keep getting better and better!


Thanks for coming by, today! You're visits always mean so much...
