Happy first day of autumn!
Today has all the beauty we Midwesterners love in a fall day. The sky is that shade of blue that only comes in the autumn. There's a pretty hefty wind pushing in from Canada bringing a predicted 32 degree night. If it happens, it will be a new early freeze record.
Our plans for later today (besides enjoying Gracie while her parents are busy elsewhere) is cover the garden and as many flowers as possible. After tonight, it's suppose to get mild and back into the 70's for several weeks. I do hope I don't loose tomatoes - they are just beginning to ripen.
Gracie is bringing a pumpkin she picked on her school trip to Tanner's Orchard yesterday. The plan is to paint a face.
Our church cookout has been cancelled because of the wind/temps so we'll have plenty of mac and cheese and cake to consume! Need to share that with the kids because no one our age needs that many carbs!
Have an exciting and fun filled first day of autumn!
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.
They do not say in their hearts, ‘Let us fear the LORD our God, who gives the rain in its season, the autumn rain and the spring rain, and keeps for us the weeks appointed for the harvest.’
You have fixed all the boundaries of the earth; you have made summer and winter. – Psalm 74:17
“Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above;
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.”
Great is Thy Faithfulness, composed by Thomas Chisholm
