Wind, Rain, Thunder and Lighting


It's Autumn!

I watched the storm come in.
And came, it did!


The picture below is our backyard,
 showing you our Peach Tree. 

It's blurry because of all the rain.
Lots of hard rain.
Then the wind came! 


The next picture was taken just 20 minutes later,
after the wind had stopped.

And just as fast as the storm came in, 
it moved on.


Our poor Peach Tree didn't know what hit it!

Then the sun came out!


 I know where all the leaves went.
The wind blew them onto our patio!
Only a few leaves made it into the yard.

🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂


The other day, Levi (our oldest grandson) 
was over to help Papa
 with some "boy type" jobs.

Fence needed fixing.



And the lawn needed mowing.



Hey Levi!......
Come on back!


Help Papa pick up all those leaves!

Then He said to His disciples. "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few."
Matthew 9:37

All Things Pumpkin 🎃


They are everywhere!
Stores, gardens, decorations, and sometimes in ovens!
I'm sure you find pumpkins for any occasion
or style of decoration.


Our Bible Study 
has started up and I signed up for snacks.

 I dug out my delicious,
Pumpkin Spice Cookie recipe.



They are a cake type cookie and I always add lots of frosting.
Soft and gooey, just the way I like them.
Oh, and the smell of these cookies... so yummy!

Even I have a few pumpkins for decorations

I went to Walmart the other day.

Around these parts,
you see tractors everywhere!

Walmart used this tractor for their seasonal decoration.
And not just an ordinary tractor but
a huge, shiny, brand new, 
 John Deer Tractor!!

 While I was in Walmart, I couldn't resist the 
cutest, pumpkin kitchen towel. 

It is perfect for my kitchen!

Curious...
How much do pumpkins cost per pound at your 
neighborhood grocery store?


Here are some fun facts I found out about Pumpkins.

Deal of the season! Costco charges $5.99 for a huge pie and you can freeze them!
The name pumpkin comes from the Greek word, 'Pepon', which mean large melon
Pumpkins plants features both male and female flowers, with bees typically being involved in pollination 
Scientifically speaking, pumpkins are a fruit (they contain seeds). When is comes to cooking they are often refereed to as vegetables.

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. Who ever come to me will never go hungry, and whoever believe in me will never be thirsty,"

Fall From My Point of View


Yes, it Fall or Autumn.

I looked up the difference between these words.
( I love to look up things like this)
Both refer to the season,
between summer and winter.

I knew that!

But Autumn is the more a formal way to refer to the season.
So, that's what I'm going to call it.
(Even thought I'm not a formal type gal.)

Autumn is Idaho is lovely.
But then again it's lovely everywhere.
For me it's more of the change
 from one season to another.

I like how Autumn puts on a big show!


  Morning sunrise from our backyard.

We moved to Idaho 4 and a half years ago.
It took some time to adjust to all the changes.
But the one change, that I have always enjoyed,
is driving out on the back roads.

Sunday is the best day for this.

Farmers aren't plowing or harvesting.
Peoples aren't racing to their jobs.
The light from the sunrises are
 sometimes breathtaking.

As we pass cornfields and hay fields, I think how blessed
I am to be able to see,
 the seasonal changes.

I never get tired of it!


I look for the familiar horses, cows sheep or goats.
that are grazing in the fields.


I now know each farm and who has what growing
 or what is in their pastures.


So, you can look up,
 once in awhile, and see hawks or
eagles soaring above.

Never gets tiring!


We also live near a lake that is home
to geese and ducks.

This time of the year,
The Canadian Geese 
(or is it Canada Geese)
are overhead, all day long.

I looked up the difference
between the two names and found that
The Audubon Society,
 refers them as Canada Geese.

In this report, it says the 1772,
the Oxford English Dictionary,
refers to the birds as
Canada Geese.

Sometimes we just call them Honkers.


After the easy drive, 
we come to the entrance of our church.

What a great way to start our 
worship and fellowship.

Enjoy Autumn and the Honkers

God is good!
