Cool fall nights

The cool nights and pleasant warm days remind me that fall is upon us. With temps in the 70's during the day and 50's at night. Time to start getting ready to hibernate for the winter. I was sitting on the front porch this evening after dark chatting with a good friend on the phone, enjoying the cool and my friend mentioned the nearly full moon. It was a really clear night and there were lots of stars visible along with the moon. Just a gentle reminder that we live in a small world. We will all see the same moon, the same stars and sun, just at different times, but the same none the less.
Fall is one of the 2 seasons I love most, the other being spring. I always am amazed at the wide range of colors in the leaves here in our state in the fall. So beautiful to watch them change. Then its time to get set for the cold that follows the fall. Time to relax and enjoy the fruits of your summer labor. Hopefully the garden is all harvested and canned or otherwise preserved. Fall is the time for the hunting season in our area as well. With deer hunting being the highlight of the fall and early winter as well as the fall turkey season. You know you are living the good life when your cellar is full of home canned goodies and the smoke house is full of meat for the winter. That's just the hillbilly way I suppose. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.
