    Fall is my favorite time of the year. I also look my best in fall color’s. I really like the way you put all the words together. Poetry is one of my fav’s.

  2. Wendy Curling says:

    I just love reading the words of your heart! Beautiful rendering of a most welcome arrival.

  3. Rebekah,

    If I had to choose one thing that is my favorite about Fall and cooler weather it would be cooking and eating soups! I LOVE soup! As a matter of fact, I still kind of cook soup periodically in the summer but it just doesn’t quite have the same feel to it! 🙂 – Dori, the Ranch Farmgirl –

    Yay I love love love Autumn. My favorite time of the year.

    Enjoyed your post as I always do! Just the other day I enjoyed a salad with lettuce and cucumber from my own garden! Loved it, some how it tasted better! I have already made the first bean soup of the season, it a Michigan soup that is loved in my area, the farmers grow the northern beans around here, we even have a festival labor day weekend called the Michigan Bean Festival! To me that means fall is here, for the chlidren don’t start school till the day after Labor day. Also seeing the sugar beats trucks hauling the sugar beats,and corn is saved till the last to be harvested there can be light snow in the fields and they will then harvest it.
    Also if you see lots of spiders in the house means and thicker webs means a early and cold winter!

    Hi Rebekah,

    Oh, pure pleasure reading your blog! And you have written it all…all the things that
    I have been feeling ever since I awoke this morning and heard the honking of the
    Canada geese flying over! I LOVE Autumn, and of course, it’s my favorite time of
    the year! I love every single thing you mentioned, and can hardly wait to wear a
    sweater! I took up knitting about 4 years ago, and love it and all the fiber animals
    that supply my knitting cabinet. I just felt so overflowing with my love of Autumn and
    wanted to share it with someone else, and here I read your blog, and find a lovely kindred spirit! Thanks for sharing!


  7. Colleen says:

    I really like your Fall post. It is my favorite time of year too! Thanks for sharing that with us.

  8. My favorite season! It’s still hot as heck, but I can already feel the difference in the atmosphere. It’s autumn! Yippee!

  9. Marcie says:

    Love your photos and descriptions of the season. Who doesn’t love fall? I say that as I sneeze, yes, allergies, but I love this time of the year and we finally get to air out the house. My indoor cats are beside themselves, smelling the fresh air as they thunder through the house running from window to window.

    I miss the call of the geese flying southward. The Sandhill cranes are my favorite with their beautiful wild trilogy call as they head to their southern winter grounds. Unfortunately we are not on the migrant flyways here in NE Tennessee, as we were back in central Texas so we miss a lot of the winged wildlife during migration.

  10. Joan says:

    YAY!!!! that was fun. Oh the black walnuts, so miss them. Thanks for sharing.
    God bless.

  11. RhondaLane says:

    Thanks for sharing! Yes, they all say that this winter is coming sooner than usual and it will be a tough one. Here in Illinois, typically, the Halloween beetles (ladybugs) come out later in October by the zillions….however….this year they came out at least a month earlier which I have NEVER ever seen before. Do they know…maybe? Enjoy this marvelous weather and season!

  12. Denise Ross says:

    I love Autumn too 🙂 such beautiful warm colours and I love the cosy atmosphere of Autumn but I can still go outside and enjoy the warmth of Autumn days with crisp air and cosy up in the early morning and in the evenings and snuggle under the covers at night

Hey, Guess What?!

My daughter, who is 13, asked me the other day if I missed her being younger. Don’t I miss her being tiny? she asked me. I absolutely don’t. I have enjoyed every single age that she has been and have never looked back. (Of course, she’s a teenager now, so we’ll see how that continues to hold up.)

    Guess what? … I look forward to your posts so much they are the first thing I read when I open my emails and see one down in the list of unopened mail. Thanks for all your time and photos.

  2. Joan says:

    Yeas all around – pumpkin looks superb, training will be a good thing, silly long haired cowboy (my son is too), ah ‘real’ corn, not much reading done around here either, maybe this winter, we too are getting Fallish already about a month early but the report is that we will be colder n snowier this year than normal, ok, AT oh I hope you get to do it, always wanted to but I will enjoy your experience, Farmer Teal n Lucille look real good together – bet that was fun, super yea for Mustache cat and for y’all to show him such love, now then the most wonderful office/studio HAS to be!!! lots of snake proofing, snake-a-way, very thick new ropes and all the advice of locals, I just know you can make it wonderfuler than it already is. Oh thanks for sharing all your great experiences – and OH GUESS WHAT!!! the teen guessing was a bit scary for me – hope it goes well for you. God bless.

  3. Linda W says:

    I think if you start to move into the office, the snakes will vacate. They are actually scared of you, if you can believe that. And leave the door open for feral cat and he will probably de-snake the place for you! Love hearing your adventures.

  4. Jacki wicker says:

    Love your blog

  5. Susan Abernethy says:

    I so look forward to your blogs!! Thank you !!
    Go for the wash house/turned studio office….It will be LOVELY. The snakes will leave.

  6. Rebekah – WOW, I can’t believe how awesome your old wash house is and what a great studio/office it will be. I am terribly afraid of snakes so I’d be a bit scared too! 🙂 But I agree with the above comment – when you move in, they will leave! And… Farmer Teal and Lucille? PERFECT!! 🙂 – Dori – (AKA: the new Ranch Farmgirl! Happy to be a part of your farm girl blogging group here on MaryJanesFarm!) 🙂

  7. Sarah B. says:

    Absolutely love your wash house, I’m currently in the transition of moving to our 1st home/farm and I’m determined in taking the wash house that is here at my home place which will be sold within the next two years… very emotional yet exciting time. I just love the “old” feel of it and knowing that my grandparents and father hold a part in it’s history and being as they’re gone now it makes it even that much more special to me and gives me that much more determination as to finding a way in having it moved and becoming a part of the new chapter in my new life. So as to your dilemma about your S’s, I say just go for it! As long as you seal up all the cracks and crevices you’ll be fine 🙂

  8. Cindy says:

    Guess what? If I had that wash house, I’d put a greenhouse on the front of it, and use it for a potting shed. Guess what else…you look like a little kid in the Farmer Teal outfit!!! LOL! Well, you do! Guess what else…I like long hair. Even on guys. But not that long. Dude looks like a lady…baa daaa bommm boommm..Dude looks looks like a lady (I’m singing-I’ll stop) Oh yeah, he looks like a lady from the back. Not the front…although some ladies…nevermind.

  9. Rebekah, for some reason everytime I get a notice of your new post, when I go to it, it is the Suburban farm girl instead?? Just thought you might want to know. I actually went to the site and clicked on your logo to bring this up so I could send you a comment, this has happened the last 3 or 4 posts that you have posted.

    Did you count foggy mornings in August for 2014? Saw your 2013 post and was just curious.
