I love the colors of the leaves, and the rustle sound they make when you walk through them. I love the smell of dirt in the harvest. I miss being in the fields watching the beet digger load the trucks. I miss riding with my mom and Dad to take a load to the beet dump. I miss watching for the giant potatoes, and the funny shapes that would get taken out in the sorting process. I miss the sound of shot guns as my brothers and Dad would chase after pheasants flying out of the field being harvested.
I love the cooling temperatures, and opening my windows at night. I love watching the geese fly south. I love the corn stalks on porches and the carved pumpkins and front steps.
PUMPKINS-- I love pumpkins. I love their color and I love their flavor. I love pumpkin pie, cookies, bread, pancakes, and muffins. I love pumpkin rolls and cranberry pound cake. I love fresh apples off of the trees and all the yummy apple desserts.
I love knowing that Thanksgiving is right around the corner- a wonderful reminder to be thankful for all our many blessings and for reflecting a little on what Heavenly Father has given us.
I even love watching the first snow fall, it makes me think of reading a book by the fire (while drinking hot cocoa of course).
