Give a nature lover a camera in New England and that person will take endless photos.
I have a lot of pictures to share with you today; hoping that the very small glory of them will grow into a deeper delight into the very magestic glory of our awesome God-creator of all.
My friend Mary takes myriads of photos of the California sea, each one breathtaking.
From the other side of the USA, I will show you pictures of the leaves.

On Friday, I met my friend Kathy at Old Sturbridge Village (a history reenactment place). The drive there was pleasantly distracting. After days of rain, on this morning the sun was out beautifully. By the time we arrived, I was seriously craving a hot apple cider.
With hot drinks in hand, we strolled through the village chasing our toddlers over carpets of crunchy leaves.
“The leaves are all falling, and they’re falling like
they’re falling in love with the ground.” A. Gibson
When we got back home, I put Seth and Sarah to bed for naps and went outside.
I sat by the pond and enjoyed a pumpkin muffin and pumpkin spice coffee with my new friend crawling around in the leaves under the picnic table.
Celebrating the season with books;
Even my chickens have beautiful red leaves to look at.
At this moment, they were more interested in the prospect of a treat. Alas, I don’t share coffee or muffins.

Ordinary riches can be stolen,
real riches cannot.
In your soul are infinitely precious things
that cannot be taken from you.
My children have another day off from school today. If it’s anything like yesterday we will be eating apples, tossing the football around, baking cookies, digging in dirt, hanging off the monkey bars, collecting leaves, drinking hot chocolate, and playing games. All with just enough sibling rivalry to keep things interesting.
Happy day, friends!
