Enjoying these Fall days and "Simple Pleasures"

I am so loving the Fall weather that we are having. Last night it was a big pot of Cabbage and Ham with Fried Cornbread. I have a pot of Chili cooking now and tonight we will have it with Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. I love these Fall meals! The afternoons have been warming into the 70's with sunshine. I was able to take a morning and afternoon walk yesterday. I loved seeing all the fall decorations in my neighborhood. It is hard to believe that October is almost over and before we know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will be upon us. I am going to do my best to enjoy every minute and not get so hurried that I miss out on any of the enjoyment!

A wonderful day!

It is 70 degrees with a light rain at my house and getting in the 50's tonight, I am so excited, Fall is really here! I love days like this watching the rain from my windows, listening to "easy listening" music and reading blogs. Life is good right now and I am enjoying it,we never know what is around the corner,but today is a wonderful day and I hope that yours is also!

This is my BBF and me at her daughters beach wedding last night on beautiful Cape San Blas. I tried to zoom the pics and they did not come out very well but it was a beautiful wedding and sunset. Everyone enjoyed the evening. Jim and I even danced on the deck!

A fall breakfast and more Soccer

One of the things I love and enjoy in fall is country sausage!I cooked some this morning with grits and eggs. It was so good on this 60 degree morning, one of my "simple pleasures". My 2 youngest Grandson's played Soccer this past weekend. I love how all 3 of my Grandson's stand with their hands on their hips. My Mother did that a lot,it always makes me think of her! This is my oldest daughter,Mother of the youngest Grandson's standing behind me.

Beautiful morning sky and Tropical Storm

The sky was beautiful this morning, as I was driving my Granddaughter to school. I wish I had my camera with me, I will put it in my purse tomorrow morning so i can capture those beautiful pink colors in the sky,if they are there again tomorrow morning. We have tropical storm Karen in the Gulf which will impact our weather. I have a beach wedding to attend next week so hopefully KAREN will be long gone by then!
