And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.

A fallen leaf is nothing  more than a summer’s wave goodbye.

Here we are the last  week end  of summer.And it seems to me that it just began, but Autumn starts on Wednesday this week.  It’s been a beautiful week here with cool nights and pleasantly warm days.  Everything is starting to take on a different feel and look.  Some leaves have started to turn, but not many.  

I able to get out in nature one day with two of my friends to visit one of our parks with two of my friends.  We took a tram ride around to view the lovely gardens there and then ate lunch at a picnic table in the shade.  i’m so thankful to have friends that go back over 30 years to get together with.  

I also got out to one of my grandson’s soccer games and it was exciting to see all the good sportsmanship and fun the kids had participating. There was a nice breeze blowing which made it comfortable to sit out on a sunny field to view the game.  

I’m thankful too that today I’ll be going to breakfast with one of my sons and his family who is only in town for the weekend. They came in for her uncles birthday party.   I'll get to visit with them for a while before they go back home. He lives a few hours away so I don’t see them too often.It will be nice to catch up with each other.

I thankful too that my SIL noticed that my brakes on the car needed attention. I now have an early morning appointment to get them fixed Monday morning.  And I’m thankful that I can afford the repair and that the garage was able to get the work done so quickly.  I don’t like to leave any thing like that  too long.  I’m thankful I have a car two get around and am able to still drive when I need to go somewhere.

My family had a great summer and remain healthy and safe too. In this day and age this is almost a miracle as so much covid is going around.  We have been greatly blessed. 

I hope you too also had a good week with lots to be thankful for.  It’s such a good feeling and makes the world seem a better place.

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
