Feeling the Fall

Donald with the farm animals
Since it's beginning to look like fall around here I wanted to start feeling it.  I wanted to visit pumpkins (and buy a few to carve), so I suggested to Donald we go to the local nursery.  When we got there, they were having a fall festival for children.  Pony rides, pumpkin bowling, decorating pumpkins, face painting and a couple of farm animals were some of the activities that were taking place.  Without any children or grandchildren we felt out of place.  No sooner had I mentioned that to Donald that my cell-phone rang.  It was our daughter telling me that she was sick.  She didn't have any food in the house so we went to the store for her to get her some chicken noodle soup.  So we ended up spending the the rest of the day with her, nursing her back to good health!  ***Three days later she is feeling better, not wonderful, but she is back to work and school.***

There were some homemade jellies, pies and cakes one could buy.  There was a big harvest of fall vegetables.  It was an interesting day, that's for sure.  I still want to do some scare crow hunting!
