Peace in a pasture

Is there anything better than spending an autumn afternoon with friends under the shade of an old oak tree?

I’m thinking not.

Change is in the air

What do you do when you’ve just heard your first Christmas commercial, though it’s only mid September?

You shake your head while acknowledging the seasons really are about to change.

I felt it this week in 90 degree temps as I sat on the beach watching green leaves transform to bright gold on the tree before me.

I suddenly found myself hungering for one more Dairy Queen hot fudge sundae before the stand closes up for the season.

And I started to linger even longer watching every last minute of each brilliant sunset.

It seems sunsets this time of year may just be even sweeter than ice cream.
