autumn gathering! (almost ready...)

i'm eager to join this house party hosted by artsy mama! (see the pretty button on the sidebar - my first one :)) i found this blog only today and had a wonderful time looking around...and exploring some of the many links there. so the "gathering" starts 10.23 (that's 10 minutes from now - eek!) and i don't have everything ready, by any means. i will post tomorrow and again friday and saturday. after all, we'd love to have you drop in for our 5th Almost Annual Pumpkin Party, hosted at our home 10.24.08 @ 6:30...so won't you please stop by again?

for now - a few autumn pictures taken over the past few weeks...

and a little more farmer's market...
i couldn't love this season more...i really couldn't. love the wind rustling the dying leaves; the swirls of leaves on streets and lawns; the scampering squirrels; the cool, brisk air; the colors; the smells. (i missed this all so much when i lived in california for 3 years)...how i love it!
