Ten Nice Things About Autumn


Life in Christian County, Kentucky...



These are listed in no particular order.

  • Putting another blanket on the bed
  • Geese honking as they fly over in V formation
  • Sitting near the band at high school football games
  • Getting back that hour when DST ends.
  • Firing up the woodstove the first time
  • Sweatshirts and sweaters
  • Playing in the leaf pile with the cat
  • Pumpkin pie, apple cider, and candy corn
  • Fall break from school (next week!)
  • Putting away the lawn mowers

What are your favorite things about the season?

Thanks for all your splended pen efforts, sincerely___ Ken

I would add the monarch butterfly migration to the fall favorites list. I like sleeping with the windows open, and being able to make baked casseroles, potatoes, meatloaf, real homemade Chex mix, and maybe even peanut butter cookies.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
