As you know, I love Autumn, especially in the Country. It's my favourite time of the year. I love the colours, the scents, and the sounds, and well, just the feel of it. Late yesterday afternoon gifted me with a very special Country Autumn moment. You know the sort - when everything comes together to make a beautiful memory.
Yesterday, we were visiting friends, a wonderfully casual Country type visit when many sentences are not quite finished because there is so much to catch up on and you want to tell and hear everything. When we left late in the afternoon, we stood outside for a few minutest because none of us wanted the visit to end. There was my Sweetie, one of my dearest soul sisters and her wonderful husband, an old friend whom I hadn't seen in years, and we had our dogs with us. We all stood ankle deep in the crisp, rustling leaves breathing in their intoxicating aroma, with the autumn sounds of distant geese and dry, rattling leaves in the air, encircled by friendship, while the light slowly turned opalescent for that magical hour before the sun begins to set. It was one of those golden moments you tuck away in your memory to warm you on a day when things are not going as well as you'd like.
Keep your senses aware and enjoy all that Autumn has to offer. Wishing you joy!!
