Aahhhh….FALL! Tis the Season!

Well, for us it’s the season we’ve looked forward to so that we can get OUT! It’s been a long hot summer here in Florida and we have plans to get OUTside…walk on the beach, hike up a mountain, spend time with family…and in general have some FUN!

I’ve decided to take a blog break so that I can really enjoy it all. I’ll pop in and visit when I can but I’m not going to schedule posts if I can’t visit all of you.

And I won’t forget you while I’m outside playing! I’m going to look for something special that I think you would like and have a giveaway when I get back on my computer. Now…what would you like? Maybe I’ll go to a Fall Festival and buy something handmade. That’s always my favorite giveaway gift!

I’m wishing you a beautiful Fall season! I am thankful for each and every one of you. Email me if you have something you want to share. I’ll still be ‘online’…just not as much!

Thanks Wendy for telling me how to make little banners!

I’ll miss you all! Red rose

Don’t forget to have some FUN along the way!

Sun See you soon! Sun

Fall has arrived here too--came after Hurricane Matthew! I love the cooler temperatures and have spent a lot of time in the garden getting it ready for winter. Seems like the months just pass by so quickly, but I love staying in touch with my Apron Sisters!

Well, won't we all miss you just too much my dear? But have a great adventure and enjoy the autumn When we get to autumn here in NW WA it is time to pull our heads into our shells and retreat indoors - rain rain rain rain - and then it rains - and then a rain storm - and guess what - it is raining. It is a good thing I adore rain. Everything is put away on the deck - just a few skeletons of lawn furniture and some pots of pansies that love the rainy autumn and winter here. Temperatures in the mid 50s during the day - rain splashing against the windows - stew in the crock pot - lovely days to enjoy a cup of tea, a cookie and a little crafting - I do enjoy the feel of gathering in and looking forward to the holidays. Have a super time my dear.

Have a wonderful time enjoying the outdoors, Diane. So many things to do when the weather is nice and cool like this. Your pictures today is a sample of all the beauty you will see. I will be here when you return. :)

Hello dear Diane, I too wish you a fun and refreshing blog break... and thank you for this wonderful post. Your narrow crop photos are gorgeous!
Big hugs!

Janey and Co. said...

Wondered where you where. Out playing. Sounds like a great idea to me. We are going to have a mini family reunion in San Antonio this next weekend at a resort I was going to tell you about me trying on a swimsuit...and coming to the realization that I could write a horror story about that!
I feel sure that you are finding lots of pretty things to photograph. See you when you return. Janey

Marie C said...

We used to live in Florida so we understand your wanting to get outside now that it is getting cooler. Have a wonderful time!

Have a lovely time on your "blogcation"

Sam I Am...... said...

Have fun and I don't blame you! I'm doing the same thing only working outside but I enjoy it. You'll notice I haven't been blogging as regularly either! LOL! I did post yesterday about 'a bunch of books' though....you don't have to comment but I thought you might want to take a look. Enjoy your outdoor fun, family and adventures!

Cranberry Morning said...

Fall is certainly the time to take a break. It's beautiful out there, even though this is Wisconsin and that's Florida! Hope you have a lovely break, Diane. xo

Deborah Montgomery said...

Have a nice break Diane. I'm sure it's nice to get out of the AC and get some cooler, fresh air. Your pictures are beautiful.

Beatrice Euphemie said...

I have missed visiting you but I'm back and catching up,,, have a lovely Fall and take lots of photos please!

Karen Ann said...


Well I hope you're enjoying your hiatus - we were in Florida in April and lord, it was hot then! And yes we even had a hot summer here in the North East. It was 80 just last week, but in the 30's over night and 50-ish today.

Susan said...

Looks like we might get some rain today, but this weekend, I'm planting over 100 bulbs! The nights have turned chilly enough, but still in the 70s during the day. Southern Fall is definitely different from the Pacific Northwest! XOXO

Linda Walker said...

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Beautiful photos, Diane. We all need a break every so often to just step back and enjoy what's in front of us. I've been doing a lot of that lately:-)
Enjoy every moment!

Jeannie Marie said...

It's been beautiful and I also am thoroughly enjoying the outdoors. Hope to see you back sporadically while taking your break.

Enjoy your time. We will miss you, but look forward to your return. More beautiful nature photos you've made. A giveaway? Woo hoo, that's always a good thing. How about autumn themed items? Oh, and I love your new blog header :)

I found your site while looking up the black Ibis. The Ibis is my favorite bird , there were some in the hay field across the road so I stopped to look and there were a few black ones. Did not know they came in black. The next day there was a whole flock of them. I feel very fortunate to have seen them. I live in Clermont Fl
